    Yeah, that's High Grade. I grabbed a pair of cream N&F there two days ago for like $50 - I posted about it in the N&F thread and now have a bunch of people wanting proxies. The only problem is, I can't do it - I'm leaving tomorrow morning back to Saskatoon for a few days.

    So if anyone here is nice enough, or perhaps wants to make a buck...

    Wtf, Kyle, why are you in our threak!?...This is Edmonton, not Chicago. We don't "sniff" wine to find out how good it is, we fucking drink it.

    I'm educating you all.

    I thought about grabbing an extra pair or two .. but I went way over budget on my appartment, and am pretty risk-adverse when it comes to money atm. Even the cashier lady thought it was a rediculous deal.

    I'm an Edmontonian while school is in session. Sigh.

    Worst service ever at the Famoso in South Common, fyi. I hate Edmonton.
    I probably go there 2 times a week. Service has always been good!

    Can anyone recommend a good massage therapist in Edmonton? Preferably Downtown or on the Southside.

    I know the name Apples & Dandelions through my sister. Should be good.

    I stopped into Overtime late last night. Absolutely dead.

    Yeah, I went into Overtime last week also. It seems like it could be a decent place if near full (it's huge, so it feels dead even if there are 50 people there); I somehow doubt it will succeed.

    Would any of you know of any jobs for a writer around town? I graduated from the U of A this past April with a writing degree and I'm in dire need of a full-time job. How else will I be able to build up a MC-calibre wardrobe?

    A writing degree from the U of A? Do you mean a Creative Writing minor w/ something else?

    Writing in Edmonton is a wasteland. You can always write for See Magazine or Vue Weekly, and maybe eventually work your way up to the Journal...but...ehhh...

    Yeah, my degree is in English with a minor in Creative Writing. I do freelance for the Edmonton Journal. I used to write for SEE, but they pay like shit. I'd take a full-time job at the Journal, but they definitely aren't hiring anyone anytime soon (they just fired 15 non-writers two weeks ago). I want to get in at BioWare, start writing their games. At least their dialogue, to start.

    I've got an English degree with a minor in Creative Writing from the U of A as well. When did you graduate?

    I actually know a couple of dudes who work for BioWare. I even know the wife of the dude who helped create BioWare. I gots hook-ups.

    I graduated this past April, hence why I'm still looking for a full-time job.

    I wish I had your hook-ups. I'm not sure how to approach BioWare. I've been playing through Mass Effect 2 and sort of re-writing parts of it in script form.

    Call the President and ask for a 15 minute meeting either before or after hours. Seriously. People are pussies when it comes for applying for jobs.
