Ignore this post.

I just found this posting on craigslist. The funny thing is that it was under lessons and not like the adult section or whatever.

Paul Krugman on helathcare

Instead of telling you to read the whole article, I'll just put in this one snippet from Paul Krugman's column today.

And the international evidence on health care costs is overwhelming: the United States has the most privatized system, with the most market competition — and it also has by far the highest health care costs in the world.
So true.

No more secrets at work

So as I mentioned, I recently gave my 3-and-a-half-weeks notice, and my last day will be April 25th (sighs in relief). Up until the other day though, I was keeping my grad school plans a secret from most of the people here out of fear that if they found out I wasn't interested in staying long term, they might find someone who was.

But now the proverbial cat is out of the bag. In many ways it's relieving, but in other ways, it's annoying. Specifically because I have to give almost everyone the same shpiel (sp?).

Them: What's this I hear about you leaving us?
Me: Well I'm going to grad school?
Them: Where?
Me: Indiana University
Them: Where is that?
Me: Bloomington
Them: What are you going to study?

And so on until I give them enough info so that they can walk away. Today alone I have done this to three or four different people. It's nice getting the attention from people who seem genuinely interested in my career decision. I think in another week everyone will know and not have to ask me any questions.

Opening Day

Who knows when Opening Day is anymore. As far as I can tell, there have been as three opening days for baseball this season. The first was on the 26th when Oakland and Boston played in Japan. The second was Sunday night, when Washington and Atlanta played in Washington's beautiful new park. And the third was yesterday, when every team was slated to be in action (there were a couple rain outs, including my Yankees). The real Opening Day is tonight, when the Yankees will be in action (or will they? It's raining here is West Haven.) against the Blue Jays. I'm actually kinda glad it got rained out yesterday because now I will be able to see the game on TV.

I love baseball season, probably more than any other sport. I know a lot of you will argue football 'til the death, and I couldn't agree more that the NFL is the most exciting pro sports league, but what can you say to refute the fact that during baseball season, you can watch your favorite team 6 nights a weeks? Personally, I am super happy that I'm going to get to watch a solid 2.5 months of Yankee baseball. I'm almost regretting having Netflix because my turnover rate will most likely go way down because I'll be watching the Yanks most nights.


T-minus 3.5 weeks

My life has seriously been filled with change lately. New car. Grad school. And now I only have 3 and a half more weeks at my job. I gave my notice today. My last day will be April 25th. Then I'm off for all of May. Just golfing and prepping for the big move to Bloomington.
