crazy little thing called lunch

lamb burger
from: vera's burger, rings n beer
price: $15 ish
rating: &&/&&&&&
listening to: queen
comments: what a gong show of a lunch today. it started with me trying to get my car, so we could have splitz burgers. that was a fail. erin was sick, and didn't take the car to school. so we settled for vera's. whose lamb burger pales in comparison to Splitz's. they also had no fries. and once we were sipping our beers, and waiting for food, they decided to tell us that there were no veggie patties left. so bill couldn't eat. oh well, I doubt I'll be going back to vera's any time soon... if ever. so lame. but at least now I know that someone CAN beat vera's meat... that someone is Splitz Burgers!! click to see the video I finally put together from one of those foggy lunches a week or two ago. the music is from killerX57's new Alien Serenades album, and feature me on the bass!

and bill had:
a jame-dog burrito from Budgie's Burrito's.
comments: click (bill's name) to see bill gazing longingly at a billboard. otherwise, click the pic to see an awesome wiggly of city hall. awesome.

and louise had:

her stitches looked at
comments: louise's stitches seem to be healing fine. you can follow her adventures on her blog. or you can click her paw to see her wearing her protective duct tape bootie. I also made a wiggly of her stitches but it was a little too much to display on this page. you can click to see it if you like.

failed lunch invention bonus post

comments: ok, so this beverage experiment was not a complete fail. I did learn that Bacon Milk is not as tasty as it sounds. This is making me rethink my multigenius idea of the 'Bacon Shake'. I did finish my Bacon Millk, and it wasn't too horrible. but I don't recommend it.

and Bill tried:

comments: click to see Bill's initial reaction to his self-made Bacon Mint Gum. not so bad a reaction. it was exactly 1/2 a second later that he spat it into the garbage. I should have taken another picture of that reaction. but I wasn't enough. maybe this just isn't the gum for a vegematarian.

the verdict:
bacon milk - not so good.
bacon mint gum - really not so good. actually quite bad.


no lunch lost. no lunch lost.

comments: dave took the qa peeps put for a team lunch today. to a fancy place in an unfancy neighbourhood. very tasty food. but I doubt I'd go back there to often, cuz I'm no millionaire. but it sure was nice getting to eat such a fancy lunch. tommy and yvette also had this pasta. click to see the door of the restaurant wigglin it up.

I believe in one lunch

swiss mushroom steakhouse burger
from: BK
price: almost $10 with shake n fries
rating: &&&/&&&&&
listening to: smashing pumpkins
comments: this burger was not so good. I'm not sure why they call them steakhouse burgers. they're just normal meat but bigger than the bun. lame. click to see a shot I took on the weekend with craig's awesome D90! erin also snapped this wiggly of a taxi at denman and georgia. I got no idea how that cab ended up there, but it looked very recent.

and yvette had:

Argo's mashed potatoes n spinach salad
comments: today we got a new airconditioner for our server room put on the roof. it'll be nice not having the temp units pumping hot air into the office and sounding oddly like a zoo. click to see the crane as it was putting the unit on the roof. or you can look at these fake porsches that were posing on main street.

listening to: hothouse flowers
comments: I met hey ritchie and his friend, tobe, for lunch. good pho. better lychee drink. so good. click to see some sweet jetta parking.

and hey ritchie had:

the BIG pho
comments: click ritchie's large pho to see false creek and the fog in the distance. you know, I don't think I've ever had the large pho. small always is big enough for me. plus... the way I add hot sauce throughout my meal... that would kill me on the large, cuz it would be spicier than ever at the end. maybe someday...

and tobe had:

some non-pho dish
comments: click to see some foggy traffic from the rooftop.

ain't lunch the sweetest thing?

vietnamese subs
from: Bale
price: $8.23 pour trois
rating: &&&&&/&&&&&
listening to: U2
comments: Bale was closed for their holidays. it's open again. oh yes. and after taking a break, it's even more delicious. today was very foggy. so I went and took another 500+ photos. assembling the movie still, I should post it soon. in the meantime, click to see a photographer taking a pic of something in the fog...

and andy had:

comments: on the weekend, I drove all the way up to the cypress lookout to see the inversion from above. however, there were some dorks 'working' at the lookout parking lot and sending people away because the lot if full. aiyuh. so we stopped on the way back down and you can click to see the best shot I think I got there. although, this one was kind interesting, too.

and jack had:

his wife's home cookin
comments: click jack's lunch to see our local chrysler dealership being dismantled. you know, this whole mess with the american car companies is stupid. they should all be shut down, not bailed out. if you look at these stats comparing a 1995 ford taurus and one from 2008, you can see that in 13 years, they've managed to make their cars LESS economical!! that's insane! why would anyone want to buy american!??! they should take these factories, and put some innovative people in charge of them. not just throw money at them to keep jobs. it's stupid. oh, and other than the 2008/2009 Challenger, there hasn't been a cool american car since 1973. bust that!

... for Russ: stats from the '96 taurus. barely less efficient than a 2008.

all I want in life's a little bit of lunch to take the pain away

from: some catering place
price: free
rating: &&&&.5/&&&&&
listening to: spiritualized
comments: it was a lunch n learn today. free food, yay! and very tasty food, it was. click to see the latest in the kill bill installation. this one was real. I was just lucky to have my camera handy. and it's nowhere near as disturbing as this one.

and tommy had:

samwiches, too.
comments: click tommy's lunch to see what would have been a 100% perfect tilt-shift-wiggly, if not for the odd window reflections. oh well. those firemen were looking over the old opsal building. perhaps they were planning to light it on fire? I"m surprised some developer hasn't had it burned already. maybe they're going to condemn it now cuz of the roof?

and jack had:

duh. sandwichies.
comments: click jack's sandwich to see olympic village wigglying. not how shangrila is nowhere to be seen. it was either swallowed by the flesh-eating fog, or torn down. not sure which. but there seems to be a few downtown buildings missing in this pic.

comments: click phil's lunch to see a strange pic of the other phil. supposedly, this photo is at SFU's surrey central campus. he swears it's a photo of him from about 5 years ago. I don't see it. do they look like the same person to you? he swears he's not making that up, though. it's really him.

price: $7ish?
rating: &&&&/&&&&&
listening to: pink floyd
comments: yummy ramen today. click to see a pic of the V6A sales office being dismantled. you may remember when I once linked to this blog entry from the always interesting condo hype blog. it's good to know that they're not trying to sell non-existent condos from the office anymore. however, if you look through you'd have no idea that this project was canned. oh well.

the miso ramen
comments: we also shared some gyoza. click to see one of them. yum.
