remembering Louise



most long-time readers of this blog will remember Louise the pug, Dave's dog who often graced the floors of the Navarik office. the loveable little pug has gone on to that big dog park in the sky. my love goes out to Dave and Holly. Louise was an awesome dog and will be surely missed. you can click the wiggly of her to view her blog. wade through the 6 years of posts and remember all the great things about her. like her stroller, or her barking at cars, or those grunting dream sounds you'd get to hear during navarik meetings. love ya, Wheezie!

price: $16
rating: &&&&.5/&&&&&
comments: today was a big day at work. a few coworkers are moving on. one of them is a real regular on LATV. Richerd. yeah. he's going. going to try his hand at a coding project with some friends in Malaysia. I wish him well. but it's too bad he won't be around the office anymore. click to see him and I both 'owling'.

and richerd had:

when it's too much lunch, it's too much lunch


jerk chicken wrap
from: the reef
price: $10ish
rating: &&&&/&&&&&
listening to: lcd soundsystem
comments: something very 'east van' happened whilst I was working this evening. there happened to be a big moving van parked right outside the office window. and I guess the shirtless man in a wheelchair decided this was the best place to use his crack pipe. he didn't even glance into the window. hah. click to see it in action.

and erin had:

the same but with salad
comments: erin came by the office today and took us all the way up main to the reef. not the best day for the reef, cuz there weren't any plantain chips, or johnny cakes (at first). anyway, the salad here is no good. erin proved that by finding a bug in amongst the wilted and nearly rotting veggies. but the wrap was delicious. can't win em all. click to see erin making a pacman out of her johnny cake shell.

and bill had:

a tofu wrap
comments: I had never seen the shell separated from a johnny cake before. nice work, bill.

bonus weekend post!


stackhouse burger
from: stackhouse (granville st.)
price: $15
rating: &&&&/&&&&&
comments: special weekend post, cuz I just had too many wigglies. click my burger there to see possibly the most awesome one. yeah. it's me. I'm awesome. as for this meal. I tried a fancy burger house that I never tried before. it was very tasty, but I still like splitz better. maybe I shoulda had the lamb burger for the true comparison. the mushroom sure added to it, though.

and andy had:

the lamb burger
comments: so yeah, andy and I went for kiteboarding lessons today. we had a groupon kinda thing. it made it half price. but 2 hours is not enough to actually learn to kiteboard. mostly, we just learned to kite in the water, and it dragged us around a bit. still very fun. it would take many more times to be able to do what this guy does. I don't think I'll be going again unless I try it somewhere tropical. but squamish sure is a popular and picturesque area for it.

rating: &&&&/&&&&&
listening to: martina topley bird
comments: four of us shared this meat plate. lamb, beef and chicken. all very good. in other news, we had no internet in the office for a short while today while we got bigger tubes installed. this meant a bunch of us got up to no good. click to see the arts and crafts eric did.

and paul had:

malaysian food from mamak cafe
comments: I love how this place has two restaurants in one. so great. and great food in both makes it hard to decide what to eat. meanwhile, back at the office, still without internet, the nerf guns came out. someone had the great idea of trying to stick 2 darts onto someone's glasses with the double barrelled shotgun. click to see the first attempt.

and bill had:

a taste of africa
comments: they were unsuccessful sticking the darts to anyone's glasses. but it was not from a lack of trying. cilck bill's lunch now to see him get the glasses knocked about a bit.

bordertown burger

price: $10ish
rating: &&&&/&&&&&
listening to: U2
comments: epic wiggly day. like the one linked from my lunch. it's eric. being awesome. he said he'd jump, so the water in his mug would hover in mid air. his landing was not so well planned, though. as you can see... it bit him back. here's what he looked like for the next hour. sacrificing his tshirt's dryness in the name of wigglies? plus 1, eric, plus 1.

and paul had:

huevos rancheros, nacho style
comments: have y'all heard about the new "planking"? it's "owling". where you take photos of yourself perched on stuff like an owl. well, guess who owls better than anyone? that's right. Owly, himself. click to see him doing just that. looks dangerous, huh? it's not. not when there's a gavin holding you in place.
