and bill had:

comments: I got no wigglies today. that's right. none. so weird. but it's how it is. click to see one of the office dogs. this is Withnail. he's as stout as a dog can be. he's also very hard to photograph in the office. he just absorbs light like some kinda magic light-absorbing creature.

his birthday
comments: Uij is one of our new japanese interns. we got 3 right now. and oddly, 2 of them had birthdays today. perhaps there are only 2 or 3 days in japan that are birthdays? that's what I must assume. anyway, lots of us went out for burgers, but I forgot to get food photos. oh well. whatchyoogonnado? click to see richerd with one big eye.

mushroom burger
from: HAVE cafe
price: $7ish
rating: &&&&/&&&&&
listening to: the rolling stones
comments: have cafe was busier than I ever seen it today. this led to some confusion with our orders. but all was fixed. they used a heckuva lot of mushrooms on my burger. good stuff. and meanwhile, half of vancouver's police force was swarming the neighbourhood, apparently to arrest one man. click to see the street in front of the restaurant when we left.

and bill had:

food with no dead animals

let me lunch and steal

buffalo chicken sandwich
from: deacon's corner
price: $10ish
rating: &&&.5/&&&&&
listening to: culture club
comments: today, I tried the special. it was... interesting. but not great. this invention was chicken breast cooked like it was spicy wings, then put into a sandwich. I do enjoy spicy wings, but the vinegary fumes would nearly choke me every time I brought the sandwich to my mouth. the flavour was good, though. and the bun... the bun was a bit flimsy to try to hold such large amounts of meat. now click to see a sweet porsche.

and bill had:

mexican scramble vegified
comments: today's wiggly theme is black cars. click bill's lunch to see a poop-covered beemer. heh.
