I'd lunch to change the world. But I don't know what to do.

cutting, pushing, dragging noodles, n dumplings n stuff
from: Sha-Lin Noodle House (broadway near cambie)
price: less than $10 each
rating: &&&&/&&&&&
listening to: ten years after
comments: phil s. met us for lunch. we tried to go to Menya, but it was awful busy. so we went a couple blocks down, to the always delicious Sha-Lin. it was pretty good. it's usually better, because they had no fried dumplings. boo. oh well. click to see andy throwing snowballs from the roof. today there were 6 of us up there firing them into the opsal steel hole.

we all shared:

for your lunch, I'd give you everything and more and that's for sure

angus burger combo
from: McDonald's
price: $9.12
rating: &&&.5/&&&&&
listening to: the yardbirds
comments: they say cats want cheezburgers. but the way nikita stared at me, throughout my lunch, I'm thinking it's the goggies who want teh cheezburgers. click to see that happening. or, have a look at the drool. funny thing about that... if you take a photo of dog's drool, to make fun on them... they will simply sneak under your desk and get all that drool on your leg. you've been warned. wish I had.

and dave had:

a southwest burger from triple o's
comments: dave came up with this ingenious plan of filling the onion ring in his burger with ketchup. this let him dip his fries in the pool, then eat the ketchupified burger. and in other news, giant chunks of the Opsal Steel building has collapsed with the weight of all the snow. click dave's lunch to see that, in simulated action. of course this meant that when sumant and I went to the roof, and tried to throw snowballs into the hole. we were each fully successful once. here's proof that we hit the target. I know. I coulda photochopped that, but I didn't. it's the real deal. you can also see about 9 of our missed shots in this pic.

on the first day of christmas, my true lunch gave to me...

in the style of this website that I saw, I'd like to take this time to wish you all a merry christmas. yes. that's me. I'm not happy. you wouldn't be, either if you were just 1 year old and given to this strange, hairy man.
peace out!!

comments: today I aged. click wario to see erin leaving for china. she can barely contain her excitement, huh? it also looks like she's smuggling some animal in that bag. hey! where's hemi!?

and for dessert, andy gave me:

the best pocky-like sticks I ever had!
comments: seriously, these were amazingly delicious. click to see one of my major pet peeves. stupid stupid drivers who wait for rd lights in the middle of a crosswalk. I'm not sure what it is about quebec and broadway, but people just loooove doing this here. it's so dumb, not only cuz they block pedestranians, but they're also not on the sensor that changes the light. so when I walk to that intersection, I usually just pretend to push the button. so the light takes extra long. word.

and of course I later had cake

butter chicken burrito

I'm especially good at expectorating, ptoooi!

butter chicken
from: Pita Star (across from Swiss Bakery)
price: $10.28 (2 orders)
rating: &&/&&&&&
listening to: Gaston.
comments: I finally tried the butter chicken at Pita Star today. it's quite tasty, actually. but I give it a very low rating. why?? I tell you. I went in there at about 2:30. after the lunch rush, so I was the only customer. I waited maybe 10-20 minutes for them to prepare my butter chicken, and head back to work with it. when I got there and opened it up, the chicken was totally cold. not cold, like it had cooled in the 2 minute walk back to work, but cold like it was not heated at all. the rice and naan were warm, but cold chicken and sauce! lame! after reheating it, it was really quite tasty. and the naan was amazing. enough of that. click to see today's amazing sunset.

and tommy had:

a fine looking sandwich
comments: click to see bill killed, once again. kids, don't try this at home. cooking your head in the microwave is a bad idea.

and dave had:

a butler sandwich
comments: click dave's lunch to see the used used car dealership. no more cars. but no for sale sign, either. does that mean they wanna put condos there? not likely now. a year ago, yeah. but now?
