I decided to walk to the U of Saskatchewan. The campus was HUGE, and it was the first day back, so I got lost constantly. There was an agriculture section with bales of hay and farm animals! I took pictures, and got crazy muddy [This was a decisive moment, because my shoes got super dirty]. So much for my sparkling white adidas. After a long trek I found the printing office and got my discovery pass laminated. It sort of looks photocopied now because the ink bled. I hope they still accept it. To kill time I wandered into an on campus building. I heard choir singing and walked towards it. I came out looking down at a prayer group. I'm pretty sure they didn't notice me. While looking through the wildlife building, they made me sign in as a visitor. Everyone looked at me suspiciously when I said I was just looking around becaues there were just offices there, so I signed in as Cedric Liu. I wanted to see the SYNCHROTRON! but it was closed and only toured mondays and thursdays. By the time I made it to the main road, it was 11am and I had been walking 5 hours. I took a quick bus and asked to check-in. The manager was a condescending passive aggressive bitch, and basically shoo-ed me away till 1pm. I bombed around the (now open) downtown area and went back at 1pm with my bags.
I was worried because my credit card didn't work at the breakfast and BMO machines. I called mastercard from BMO and he assured me the account was valid, and I could punch in the number if the strip was dead. When checking in, the bitch said they don't punch in the numbers even though I could sign and had 2 picture ID's. Luckily the card went through. I had been walking about 7 hours by now, and took a much needed shower and fell asleep. I woke up and tied some loose email ends and just finished dinner at a thai/laos place. Gonna try the uni-observatory (open @8pm) and do some laundry in the sink. They charge for washer but not the dryer. I also bought Hebs/Wakana a little vinyl toy, and one for Rachel. Good dinner, I'll save half for later.
