This is hilarious. One day I shall contribute some of my own freelance experiences - including shameless requests for unpaid work favors and the always comical (if only in retrospect) excuses given when collecting on overdue invoices. In the words of Rodney Dangerfield, designers "don't get no respect." Also, in the words of the Yip Yip Martians, "yip yip yip yip yip uh huh uh huh". 

Will write a longer post about my first week in Saskatoon later, but just wanted to give a shout-out to two of my favorite things: pizza and cupcakes. Voted best in the city for the past seven years, Vern's Pizza is one of the most delicious pies I have EVER had. It also weighs a tonne...they don't skimp on the toppings! Secondly, The Cupcake Conspiracy should probably be excommunicated for their sinful offerings. Drooling at "The Prohibitionist" and "The Confession". Thank god there's a gym at my residence. :S
