What a spectacle!

After a slightly confusing finance class this morning (let's just say I was a little sleep deprived... staying up until 4am to watch the VP debate made me better informed and a little amused but less awake for a class dealing with numbers), we went to go get Raymond's new glasses!

His old ones were literally about to snap in half, so last week we went to the optometrist. Thanks to the NHS he was able to get two pairs for about the cost of seeing a doctor back home. Everyone has designer shades here because they are so much less expensive!

We didn't know before we got here, but because we are registered students with visas we have full access to the NHS. Neither one of us have used it yet (the eye appointment doesn't really count because it's not through NHS directly) but it is nice to know it is there if we have a problem.

We also made fried chicken for dinner. YUM! I always love Raymond's recipe and it's so much better than KFC.

Tonight we are working on homework and packing in preparation for the morning. Ryanair is very strict about their baggage weight and size restrictions so we're trying to pack a single backpack each, as light as possible.

"In Dublin's fair city, where the girls are so pretty, he first set his eyes on sweet Molly Malone..."

I hope all my Irish dreams will become a reality in the next three days!

Below, new glasses!
