and emma had:

pizza too
comments: click emma's lunch to see a bit of the parade that wandered through the grounds. pretty silly stuff. the theme was 'paint the town'. that's why it's all colourful and looks like the 80s? here's another parade shot. man, I am out of practice with my two little cameras. I need to carry them more often, methinks.

my lunch is a life taker

beef and rice meal
from: Afro Canadian Restaurant
price: $9
rating: &&&&.4/&&&&&
listening to: weezer
comments: delicious afro for lunch. good stuff, as usual. click to see some clothing store? that seems to be named after some lyrics in a Tricky song. if it's not a clothing store, it's at least a brand of jeans. odd. and yeah, I guess tricky didn't invent those words. in fact, upon investigating, another band had that song title in 1994. but still... it put that tricky song in my head all day.

and bill had:

a taste of africa
comments: this veggie dish is the best for variety. too bad I like meat in my lunch so much. click to see the awesome parking stickers on gavin's jeep. if you don't get it, you're not enough of a nerd.

listening to: chris issak
comments: i took my monday today. thus, no work. but still went to the office to pick up some lunchers. bill and richerd. and erin had a day off today, too. click my lunch to see some beach volleyballing that I saw later in the evening.

and zoltar had:

richerd's lunch
comments: when the splitz lady asked for richerd's name, he paused, then said Zoltar. at which point the lady said 'ok, but don't forget it'. two minutes later, they called Zotar twice without getting richerd's attention. good times. also notable, last weekend Richerd did the west coast trail in 33 hours, start to finish. crazy man. most people spend a week doing this. click his lunch to see erin helping him back to the car. his legs still haven't fully recovered.

and erin had:

a burger, of course
comments: no witty comments about erin's lunch. click to see her with a halo.

and bill had:

comments: lastly, click bill's lunch to see him trying to be erin. he failed. looks more like a main street hipster.

salmon sandwich

"the deacon"
from: deacon's corner
price: $13ish
rating: &&&.5/&&&&&
listening to: massive attack
comments: this item, 'the deacon', has always been staring at me from that deacon's menu. it's a burger with a smokie-like dog on it. it's a lot of meat. and it was quite tasty. but not mind blowing. just tasty. the candies they gave out at the cash register were adorable, though. click to see those.

and bill had:

comments: on the weekend, there was a parade at the end of my block. it was some filipino parade/festival that was heading to st george's church. so it went down quebec street. crazy.

some tuna sashimi
comments: this sashimi was from Tenhachi, which is on 12th, just west of Oak. in that big apartment building that's actually a bed and breakfast. they have good food. you should try it. also... when it's like 30 degrees out, there's a utopian patio behind the building that stays nice and cool. they close for lunches at 2pm. that is all.

and bill had:

comments: next to our office, they are filming some show called life unexpected. bill was very amused by the air conditioning tubes they ran into the building. he thought it was all very e.t like. for me, it was reminiscent of the summer I spent working for my cousin's temporary air conditioning business. in fact, that truck contains one of his units. yay Cool Air!

can't wait for the lunch, lunch to be king

from: deacon's corner
price: $12?
rating: &&&&/&&&&&
listening to: daniel lanois
comments: good breakfast for lunch. my only problem is that adding 2 eggs to your meal costs $3.50. that seems crazy to me when you can practically get a dozen eggs for that price. oh well. it was tasty. I couldn't even finish it. click to see how much I left behind.

and chris had:

a boigah
comments: linked from chris' lunch is a month old photo from Fanny Bay. I had forgotten about my underwater camera, and the photos on it until just the other day. don't get your hopes up, though. it's not underwater photos. those ones were all too murky to see anything.

a lunch that you never gave

veggie dinner for 2
from: sitar
price: $20ish
rating: &&&&/&&&&&
listening to: the black crowes
comments: indian food for lunch. there's no cheap options at all, at this restaurant. so bill had to twist my arm (and put money in it) in order to get me to go. the food is delicious, though. throughout lunch, I left my camera in the window taking photos every 5 seconds. I though this would make for a cool time lapse vid. it's not bad, but not great. instead I cut it up. click the food to see people only walking to the right. or you can see them going to the left.

more food:

comments: again, the food was delicious. click this part of the meal to see the best part of the time lapse. if you are familiar with gastown, you may recognize this guy from his kneepad and/or his impromptu style of cleaning the streets.

and more food:

comments: we also had mango shake/lassi, but I won't show the photo. instead, you get one last wiggly. let's see what it is... hmmm... how about the crazy smoke-haze that's been hanging around town
