rating: &&/&&&&&

comments: so we tried Laura's Cafe again. this time, not so good as the last. I ordered lemon chicken. I got a piece of fish, a piece of chicken on a bed of old noodles. meh. really not that good. click to see my gif world.

and phil had:

(chicken, )fish n chips
comments: yeah. turns out phil had my chicken, and I had his fish. not that that mattered, cuz I really couldn't tell the difference in the tastes. yikes. next time, I stick with the $5 burger. when phil left the company, he was very secretive about where his new office was. even though he ended up telling us, andy and I couldn't resist tracking him back to work and photographing evidence. busted.

meanwhile dave had:

some noodles.
comments: dave also accidentally dropped his new business card into his soup. hee hee. so, of course, I had to take a picture. in the linked photo you see Louise after a little paw surgery she had. they had to remove a growth or infection or something that was causing her to limp, and getting worse. poor little thing. here's a close up of her paw that they shaved to run the IV.

bagel sandwich n salad

comments: good bagelwich. click the pic to see something weird that my camera caught. I thought it was just a normal city pic, but when I transferred it to my computer, I noticed something weird going on.

and the salad was:

better than the sandwich, actually.
comments: click the salad to see my artistical rendition of the fire I helped distinguish last night. very distinguished. but for reals. ok, so... remember as kids, when you'd sit in the back of the station wagon backwards? well, imagine having 6 people in a Forester. yeah, you gotta put the last two in backwards. illegal? maybe. dangerous? no. in fact... it could have been life saving. because the two guys in the back noticed something no one else saw. a fire on a porch. they hollered for us to pull over, and we went running back and put out the fire. the photo linked was actually taken after we put the fire out. I just drew the flames in mostly where they were. if you look closely, you can see the woman with her hose finishing off our work. also, we managed to put the fire out, and leave before the firemen got there. fun! sorry for all the reading you had to do. here's an unrelated wiggly gif

comments: noel described his sandwich in such great detail that dave was able to create this amazing artistic replication of the sandwich. ok ok, I'm just kidding. dave actually saw the sandwich. that's why it's so realistic. but he did describe it to me. very fancy. click to see olympic village as a thousand cranes. sometimes I think that vancouver is just someone's origami crane collection... working towards their thousand wishes. then I realize that I'm stupid cuz paper is not a very good building material for the vancouver. or perhaps its the origamist who's the stupid one. time will tell.
