people shufflin their feet, people sleepin in their shoes

sea bass congee
from: congee noodle house
price: $5ish
rating: &&&&&/&&&&&
listening to: neil
comments: so good the congee. yes. they were out of donuts, though, so me in my ingenuity went to Kam's bakery/restaurant around the corner and got some. I go to Kam's every morning for something to munch on the way to work. they're good. click the pic to see what's across the street from my office.

and dave had:

a pizza sandwich
comments: dave brought lunch from home and made a sandwich. yay. click the pic to see the hearse I walk by eveyday.

bonus section:
after work, I did my old walk down to the atimi office. aaah what a walk! where else can you see stuff like autumn in the park or an old lady smacking her butt while walking through said park. then I heard comeone calling my name, and looked pu to see
an old high school friend waving. and of course, there was the
bench guy I always used to see when passsing by science world and skaters doing kickflips to board slides. and of course, a man eating a watermelon. and the end of the walk signified by the steam clock. once I got there, we came back out to get drinks. and I commented to Mike that we should tel the crowd that it's just a clock, so Mike yelled at them. "IT'S JUST A CLOCK!!!" awesome. while having drinks, pierre showed off the first iphone I've seen in action. and the night ended with beers on zoltan's roof. fun. so, if you're wondering why the linked pics on the blogs just aren't what they used to be... well... I just don't walk as far anymore.

rating: &&&&/&&&&&
listening to: soul coughing
comments: damn camera. the "broken" camera finally started acting really broken. I took pics at lunch, then I took a few more on the way home and boom, all the lunch pics gone. so you're not looking at my lunch, you're looking at an old one that was exactly the same. anyway, I met Nicky from atimi and we ate curries. yum. the linked pic is one of the ones I took in my laneway on the way home. fun clouds. if that's just not enough to click on, you should check out this page that I found through erwin's blog. it let syou see all? the pics that are being uploaded to blogger. cool stuff, it lets you find blogs like this one via the unique photos that are uploaded. ok bye.

club sub
from: you guess
price: $8ish
rating: &&&/&&&&&
listening to: Urge Overkill
comments: just a sub. click to see a pic I took in the evening out at ubc. it's amazing how they manage to destroy more and more nature out there. soon Pacific Spirit will be a single tree you can walk/ride/run around for your nature experience. I know this was just a boulevard destroyed here, but I'm sure they got bigger plans. aren't there enough condos in vancouver already?? then there's that zlotnic guy who has somehow decided to give the park to our local first nations band, so he can save the precious golf course? ... uh.. I didn't know he owned it. if you want to know more, click here

listening to: built to spill
comments: I went for a bit of a walk at lunch. headed up to london drugs to pick up some stuff. then went to ichibankan across the street. yum. it's always good when it's still busy. very fresh and delicious. now click the pic to see a sign I saw on the way back. crazy. yes. crazy. I kinda wish I could see the person walking around posting these. haha.

again, no guest lunch, but click it anyway to see a marketing slogan that caught me as pretty funny. it's new fancy condos. how would they sell them? "where style meets function" ? "where afordability meets design" ? "where city living meets comfort" ?? no, they settled for what you see in the pic. iyiyi.

price: $7ish
rating: &&&.5/&&&&&
listening to: Rush
comments: today I wandered around the area taking photos, then got the regular old swiss bakery sandwich. it was good. I like. click to see my office building. it's too bad they took down the cool nestea ad and put up this stupid one. oh well. that said, you guys should really go check out killerX57's latest tunes. all done in garageband. pretty awesome stuff. he's putting my garagebandery to shame. and if you're all like, 'I don't know this killerX57, why should I care?' well... you do know him. perhaps as bucketofbeer or brian from the amazing band Dirty Friday. go listen.

price: free. work bought it
rating: &&&/&&&&&
listening to: uncle tupelo
comments: little bit of a push at work. got a free lunch and just had to stay and work. if you click the pic, you will see some strange sunlight hitting my desk. I sit no where near a window, so I turned to see where it was coming from... and the answer, my friend, was science world. science world glowing like the metal on the edge of a knife.

and for dinner I had:

shrimp penne
from: Boston Pizza
price: free again
rating: &&&&/&&&&&

and for dinner, dave had:

spaghetti n meatballs
comments: well well well... oddly, hidden under dave's lunch is another pic of louise. and if that's too much pet for you, you can watch jean-claude hit on a man or get excited by the ladies watch that one to the end. haha

that's all I can stands and I can't stands no mo

beef donair
from: Spiros (broadway and yukon)
price: $6
rating: &&&/&&&&&
listening to:
comments: the donair was ok. I know it looks like crap in this pic, but it wasn't bad. shoulda got the chicken, though. when will I learn. always get the chicken. carving beef off those rotating thingys always puts me off a bit.. but for some reason the chicken always looks more like real meat. and tastes so. click to see the place I got it.

and someone else had:

comments: if you do not believe your eyes, you shouldn't. but itt's true. that's a mcdonald's bad and that is a dodge challenger. unbelievable. can't dodge sue them or something for misrepresentation?? I mean, it'd be ok on a wendy's bag, but not mcdees? lame. click to see an old car I saw at the car show last weekend.

montreal smoked meat sub
from: subway
price: $10.59
rating: &&.5/&&&&&
listening to: zep
comments: this was not a very good sub. the meat didn't really taste like good montreal smoked beef. it just tasted like more budget corned beef. but click the pic to see why I had to try it. yeah. that's a warning sign in subway explaining that this one costs more because it has more protein. whaaa? funny

and dave had:

a turkey sub
comments: click dave's sub to see this year's pepsi contest. they do it every year. I've often won stuff from there. not too sure if I will this year, there's a lot of people out there entering A LOT. if you want a good list of pins, I found one online, just talk to me and I'll set you up. I don't want to link to it from here.

comments: if you cliuck phil's lunch you will see the crime scene from science world. someone broke in and possibly stole ice cream. I might have made that part up, but when I asked for a whake they said there was no ice cream and pointed at the broken window. we were asked to carefully order our food so as to not touch anything cuz someone was coming for fingerprinting. heh.

comments: so I went to white spot at science world today, and it was closed. boo. so I wandered around a bit and took pictures I could work my gif-magic on. and ended up going to swiss bakery, but they didn't have roast beef in the big bread. so I settled for this one. not nearly as satisfying.

Two pairs of pants and a mohair vest. I’m full of bourbon, I can’t stand up

sushi special
from: Sushi Boy
price: $5.75
rating: &&.5/&&&&&
listening to: Tom Waits
comments: a rather interesting day today. it started with me seeing rain and thinking that my feet would be soaked walking to work cuz me shoes are kinda past their expiry date. So at work I thought I should go find some new shoes at lunch. Erin said she'd help me with this, cuz I'm a special needs shopper and need a worker with me to explain why or why not to buy things. But that's just the beginning of the story. in the linked pic is erin after the shopping extravaganza.

and here's a:

random pic of magnum in my old window.
comments: so I spent too long shopping and there's no guess lunch. but anyway... on with the story, I went to the washroom before leaving for lunch, and before leaving there, the fly on my shorts was kinda stuck, so I tried to get it unstuck. which resulted in it breaking. so now I had to walk around, and go buy shoes with my fly wide open. arg. easily solved, though, I just wore my jacket zipped up a bit, and went and bought new shorts whilst buying my new shoes. oh, and I found I could get a 2nd pair of shoes for very cheaply. and I did. and if you click the pic, you will see the new headphones I got from London Drugs. they were needed for my desk. overall, a $150 lunch.
