This weekend was a bit of an adventure. My boss was heading to a conference at Yale University in New Haven, CT and invited me along for the ride. I figured, “What the heck! Might as well!” The trip itself took 6 hours rather than the 3 everyone told us it would take (google mapping sucks) but once we got there, I was in heaven! The campus is GORGEOUS!!!! I felt like I was becoming more intelligent just by sitting in the buildings.
There was a bit of craziness. I hitched a ride on a city sanitation worker’s golf cart while on the hunt for nylons and scared my waitress at a Thai food restaurant by drinking an entire pitcher of water due to the spiciness of the food. But other than that, it was a pretty chill weekend.
Oh, and, I heard Jeffrey Sachs speak about the United Nations’ Millenium Development Goals. According to him, if every American forked over $33.00 a year, everyone in the world could have their basic medical costs covered. He even had the math to prove it! It’s disturbing really. Makes me want to read The End of Poverty but I already have two other books on my plate. Books…What a luxury!
