julie found budvar in coquitlam! except that it's been renamed czechvar, i suppose for copyright issues. 'tis exciting though, in a roundabout sort of way.
today i missed the fun half of a lecture about african music, which involved us singing along and carrying the beat. i stayed as long as i thought i could, but had to leave for a meeting downtown which, turns out, was actually next week. i'm not sure if she told me the wrong info or if i just forgot it. either way, it's a titch annoying, only because i'd rather be up at the burnaby campus in the sunshine at the moment, but seeing as i need to be downtown in a few hours anyway, it seems silly to take the long busride up there.
it has to be 20 degrees today, if not warmer. absolutely lovely.
