after getting the week off to a rough start, this has been a good couple of days for lunch. I haven't had any non-curry lamb at the village before, and the stew is quite tasty.

bad up your betterness

combo 8 (spicy pork on rice w/ salad)
from: A1 vietnamese (and korean)
price: free
rating: &&&&&/&&&&&
listening to: the presets

park lunch! as such I was actually listening to crows and seagulls when I was eating, but now that I'm posting I'm listening to the presets. I hope that clears up the confusion you no doubt were experiencing. 'though a presets concert in the park would be pretty awesome, too.

lunch was almost free today because the shrubbery near webct was giving away 5 dollar bills. thanks shrubbery! I guess it would have been even more free if I'd just eaten the mushrooms for lunch, but then I likely wouldn't get any work done this afternoon.

and finally click the pic to see the best little car ever.

woman (mstrkrft remix)

ten see
from: hkcf
price: five
rating: &&/&&&&&
listening to: wolfmother

hkcf is training a new wok handler who cooked my food too long. oh well, safety first I always say. but with tofu and vegetables, there isn't really much that can go wrong aside from soft veggies.

the devil in us

D19 (green beens and tofu with black bean sauce on rice and noodles)
from: hkcf
price: $4.77
rating: &&&/&&&&&
listening to: black devil disco club

today is (effectively) the last day of webct! the last webct employee I know had his last latv today, and suprisingly it wasn't curry point. if you want his review, you can ask him when you see him in dc.

and in other webct news, click the thing to see what's become of gwilli's old desk. that place is a ghosttown. I think we should turn it into the new serf.

can someone tell me if 28 after was really recorded in 1978? the sounds themselves are timeless, but the production sounds too clean to me to be a long lost recording. regardless, it's an awesome sounding album and so damn catchy.

eggplant panini + salad
from: perugia (sp?)
price: $6.63
rating: &&.5/&&&&&
listening to: cut copy

jon doesn't like the village basement, so I joined him at the new (to me, anyway) cafeteria in the blood sciences building. not bad, not good, but nice and close. I guess that's already an improvement on the village..

I forgot to take my camera, so instead of a picture of my lunch you get a picture of the new tim horton's in the fsc. 6 staff working there this morning, and I still had to wait for 10 minutes to get two donuts that were already made. methinks they need some training days.

pepper stuffed with brown rice + snow peas, chicken noodle soup and odwalla superfood micronutrient fruit juice drink
from: microsoft research cafeteria
price: ?
rating: &&&/&&&&&
listening to: the chatter of msr dorks

special friday lunch! gwilli always used to go somewhere different on fridays, so I thought I would do the same. this time I went to microsoft research in the heart of deepest darkest redmond for a fine cafeteria lunch. I got the stuffed pepper from the healthy food section, but healthy == bland at msft. I couldn't convince anyone that even though the juice was green, it still tasted like juice. and last on the ingredient list is nova scotia dulce. way to represent all the way over in the usa.

after lunch we took a shuttle car to the Company Store. jim had taken a shuttle bus before and found that they have candy on them, but kori shattered his illusions when she told him it was just for hallowe'en. on the way back, we got a bus with candy on it which made yesterday possibly the best day ever for jim.

oh yeah, and we saw some zunes. they didn't have any pink ones. they kinda suck.
