I have no exams that require a ton of prep, and if I have essays... I'll work around other peoples' dates. I think that Tyler was saying late November/early December works for him, so I'm voting around then.

McGill was silly and started on September first this year.  It looks like I should be having a similar experience to Allison though.  Most of my midterms are mid October, though I think I have one or two in early November.

If we're talking early december, the sixth-through-eighth are free for me between lectures and exams, with the options of extending later if I don't have finals right away.

My midterm dates:

October 19
October 27
November 2
November 10

I have heard people mention both Nuit Blanche (October 3) and American Thanksgiving (November 26th) as possible dates to base things around.  Both would work quite well for me, I think.  Nuit Blanche actually doesn't work for me, as it is during Pop Montreal, and I will be busy seeing lots of music.

Thoughts?

It really is, but I talked it over with my friend (who's got family working for United and has pretty much the same sort of setup that you used to have Katie) and she said that depending on airline policy, international flights might not be so bad. I'm certainly not opposed to a few hours of aggravation in exchange for a few days in Toronto.

Oh btw could anybody put me up for the duration? I'll cook things for you!

So how does american-rules thanksgiving work? It's a thursday? And is the subsequent Friday a day off too, then?

I can whip up some pumpkin and sweet-potato pies, as I've been doing annually for Canadian thanksgiving, though my birthday is the 27th so I may want to be in Waterloo for that.

For those of us in school, I believe we get an extended period of time off, usually the whole week, although it could just be that I'm dumb and thinking of high school when college works differently. My memory just isn't that good.

Depends on the university, John. Typically those on the semester system get the entire week, while those on quarters just get a couple of days.

Both the universities I have attended (WSU and UConn) have the whole week off. Usually this is balanced by starting earlier or a shorter winter break.

Damn, because my undergrad institution (College of Charleston) stated one of the earliest I've seen (I think the last full week of August), lasted about as late as everywhere else, and started back up around the same time, or a little before all of the other places that my friends went.  I think we got boned on the whole vacation time thing.

american thanksgiving seems to be the best timeframe, but i think scheduling it for the weekend before or after (probably before) makes a bit more sense than for the actual week so that students don't have to worry about missing classes and any american visitors can hopefully avoid family time conflicts. by my watch that is the weekend of either november 20th - 23rd or november 27th - 30th.
do either of those dates work for everybody?

The weekend before before works best for me.  I'll likely be heading in to Toronto on the 19th anyway, since my mom is giving a reading at the library.  If the next weekend does turn out to be the only workable one for some people though, I may still be able to do that.

Something about it being a brew pub that pushes Canadian beers, and has live music, and board games, and pool and good vittles. 
If there are other places like that in downtown Toronto, I don't know about 'em (please tell me though).

That was what we would eat when my dad would make dinner because my mom was busy with work or something.  Always great nights.  I am fully in favour of pancake dinners.

Sounds like some good stuff.  Ice skating would be a blast.  How expensive do skate rentals tend to be?  Would it be worth bringing my own skates?

Depends where you go. It's super cheap at Nathan Phililps, but I don't think that rink will be open yet. I'll check out some other places.

So how does this look so far:
Rural Alberta Advantage - Friday
Ice Skating - Saturday
Pancake Dinner - Saturday
Shopping (John needs jeans, I am told) - Saturday

Any objections?

It's always good to take your own skates as they'll fit a lot better and probably be sharper too.
