Classifieds

Needed/Lost and Found:

 

Lost Course Organizer: My course organizer, containing all materials for all four of my courses this semester, went missing on Thursday morning of last week.  It seems I lost track of it during chapel and coffee hour, when I leave my book-bag unattended, but it is also possible that it went astray on Wednesday afternoon following my Pastoral Care of Depression seminar.  It is made of whitish-clear plastic and has my name and contact information written on a card in a clear sleeve just under the flap, which secures with white elastic. It is about two inches thick and somewhat heavy. It contains lecture notes written on graph paper, course handouts and some readings printed out from Classes v2, work toward a final paper for the Pastoral Care of Depression, syllabi, and returned papers with comments. I would benefit from having my course organizer returned to me, either directly or indirectly, as soon as possible. If you find it, you could leave it on the table in the commuter lounge.  I will look for it there, having already looked elsewhere.  Thank you, Ellen Wittmann (ellen.wittmann@yale.edu)

 

Ride to Cleveland Needed: Driving to, near, or through Cleveland for Christmas?  If you are, I would love to ride with you.  I'd be happy to share the driving and help pay for gas.  If any of this sounds like a good plan to you, drop me a line at  liam.haggerty@yale.edu.  Grace and peace, Liam

 

Lost Cell Phone: I think I lost my cell phone today at the Divinity School, maybe either the cafeteria or the library. Its dark grey, Motorola Razr. If anyone comes across it, can you please let me know.  Thanks, Gabe (gabriel.hornung@yale.edu)

 

Cat Sitter Needed:  We have two adorable kittens, Jake and Mexicali Rose, who need some care and affection while we are away for Thanksgiving break.  Ideally, we are looking for someone who is willing to hang out in our house for a little bit each day to feed them and give them a little attention.  Not only does this amazing package include time with two cute cats, but we'll also throw in full use of our house, including our spacious kitchen (appealing to those living on microwaveable diets), fireplace (for pyromaniacs and/or those with a general dislike for the cold), washer and dryer (no quarters necessary) and if you so desire our whirlpool jet tub (perfect for the weary and heavy laden).  And that's not all, we will also pay you!  But wait, there's more!  We could even be persuaded to bring back delicacies only available in the South should that be appealing to anyone who misses home or just appreciates the deliciousness of Cheer wine.  Flexible dates:  Sun 11th - Sat 17th.  If interested please let either Rachel Johnson (rachel.johnson@yale.edu) or Allison Hager (allison.hager@yale.edu) know.

 

Help Needed for Advent Party: The YDS Advent party is fast approaching (December 11!) and CLC is looking for volunteers to help with set-up, clean-up, bar-tending, decorations, and children's activities.  Should you be interested in helping out on this very fun night, please email caroline.levy@yale.edu or brandon.johnson@yale.edu.  Thank you all so much, and have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!!  Peace, Carrie and Brandon 

P.S. Look for more information on Tree Decorating December 7, with Christmas carols and Dale hanging the ceremonial first ornament!
