might as well face it, you're addicted to lunch

vietnamese subs
from: Bale
price: $8.225 pour trois
rating: &&&&/&&&&&
listening to: robert palmer
comments: oh man. quite the eventful friday. I found another accessible carpark roof in chinatown, phil treated the office to waffles, I saw UFOs, and bill got fillings for the first time in his life. check out this attempt at a full smile. ha. it was too out-of-focus to make a wiggly out of it. click my lunch to see one of the views from the rooftop.

and tommy had:

comments: click tommy's sandwich to see a warped wiggly of the 'couve. word.

and the office was treated to:

waffles! from Patisserie Lebeau
comments: the techops boys were kind enough to spend wads of their cash on waffles for the rest of the office. or maybe it was just phil? I'm not sure about that. travis, too? I know phil ordered one of each type of waffle, and travis order 6 waffles, but maybe travis et all 6 of his. he's crazy like that. click to see burnaby and the mountains behind. I think those mountains are Golden Ears, but I'm not sure. Russ, is it golden ears??

and the sky had:

some UFOs
comments: so, this afternoon, I was gazing out the window, and saw a shiny tiny object moving slowly through the sky. I pointed it out to bill, and he noticed there were others. they looked like they were moving about the speed of satellites, but I never saw a satellite in the daylight before... but that's feasible, right? you might see one or two? but as we stared, we noticed more and more, so I ran to grab my camera. bbil said he saw 8 of them. I, myself, saw 5. of course, the camera I had at the office is horrible at focussing when zoomed in 40X. so this photo here is the largest, I could get of one of them. and in the linked photo, you will see 2 of these UFOs. pretty crazy. our only theories are:
1) satellites (but 8 of them?! all heading the same direction?? illogical)
2) mylar balloons (just maybe they weren't as far away as they looked, and they were simply released shiny balloons)
3) weather balloons (but again.. 8 of them?? illogical!)
4) high altitude military spyships (again... 8 of them!? over vancouver?!?!)
5) aliens (doubtful)

and tommy had:

something other than a sandwich!
comments: click tommy's lunch to see these weird korean mints that we were given by our food supplier. check out the stickers on them, near the top of each package... which would you go for??

comments: ladies and gentlemen... welcome one and all to my 1000th lunch post!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! very exciting. one thousand. who knew I'd eat this much lunch? and to think... if you averaged, say, $8 for each lunch over the past 4.1 years, that means I've spent $8000 on lunch. wow. nice. makes me wonder what I've spent on beer. so, you might as well click my lunch now to see what I have in store for you. yes. it seems the Man Factory band (who created the genus street fighter rock opera) has an office on the same block as us! and I never noticed before, imagine that.

look what lunch has done

shrimpy dumplings in noodle soup
from: kam gok yuen (in chinatown)
price: $5ish
rating: &&&&/&&&&&
listening to: chris whitley
comments: today was an exciting day. this is because I converted one of my Nikon D1's into an 'infrared camera'. and I sorta took a bunch of infrared-like photos using a R60 filter and an IR flashlight. I learned a lot playing with this. some things I learned:
-when you take the filter off your CCD in a cat-dominated apartment, make sure you blow the dust off the CCD _before_ shooting.
-I need a proper R72 filter to actually shoot IR properly.
-everyone looks creepy in IR light
-bill and travis aren't very good at focusing.
click to see a gif that will make you laugh. make you cry. make you watch it over and over again and rush to show your friends.

and ritchie had:

bbq pork noodle soup
comments: the linked wiggly of hey ritchie is very messed with. I think the wonky colours can be mainly attributed to the D1 being old and weird. there wasn't much IR light showing up in this shot.
