quit me job today!

pulled pork sandwich
from: DIX BBQ and brewery
price: --
rating: &&&&.5/&&&&&
comments: yeah. so I quit my job. fun. yeah. and this lunch was my 2nd interview for my new job. which I got. more on that in a couple weeks. :) I forgot my camera at lunch. hmm.. what do you do when you have: a) a lunch blog. b) a lunch-interview and c) you forget your camera? well, you get your new boss to take the pictures. thanks dave! and if you click my lunch, you will see the zombie we call Zoltan right after his presidential assassination attempts. I think he survived, though. so yes, a bunch of work people (current job, not new one) went to the paintball fields to get covered with little bruises. fun.

and dave had:

chicken club sandwich?
comments: I think dave liked his lunch, too. I guess he can't really bring louise to lunches too often. but I'll get to see her at my new office often enough. and if you click this pic, you will see the Illuminares lantern festival that happened on the weekend. tons of people milling about trout lake park. very hard to take good pics, though. if you use flash, you lose the lanterns' effect. if you long expose, nothing wants to hold still for you. oh well. it was pretty cool to wander around the lake.

comments: pizza. meh. click the pic to see what we watched while eating our pizza. I think the craziest drivers in the world, are in saudia arabia. like in this linked video. it's not the driving, but the passenging. crazy!

and the cake was:

ice cream!
comments: click the cake to see another example of a crazy passenger. ha. but really, I had no idea there were such crazy drivers in saudi arabia. if you watch some of their drifting videos, you will probably be as amazed as I. it's like they have too much money, or maybe they've just played to many racing video games?

rating: &&&&/&&&&&
listening to: modest mouse
comments: the thai food place is really good at harbour centre. except I always ask for 3 items, and only get 2. but they only charge me for 2, and it always looks like enough food then. so I quietly accept it. yum. now click the pic to see the mayor I saw this morning slumming it in the DTES. wonder what samwise sullivan thinks about chocolate rain???

and scott had:

food from the amazing wok.
comments: click the pic to see why scott is a very good person to follow in a crowd. and one more blurry pic for ya, I saw the saddest thing on the road tonight. a '63 or '64 riviera. One of my all time favourite cars. and now they need body work. so sad. I cried a little. *sniff.*

North Van was perhaps stolen? just gone. poof. oh well, I'm diggin' it cuz I'm not too hot walking to work. what's also neato about the linked pic is the format of it. I never knew you can just export pics from photoshop like that. go on, zoom in.

and kevin and mike both had:

comments: click this to see more zoomified pic. I was also trying to learn about HDR photography with this one. it didn't work right, but I like the effect.

Bang your head like a gong, cuz it's all filled with wrong. clang clang clang!

pork sopes
from: mexico rico
price: $10ish
rating: &&&&/&&&&&
listening to:
comments: good food. and now click the pic to see main and broadway 4hours after this accident occurred. strange. reading that article, I can't help but wonder why they had to shut down such a major intersection for 5 hours (through rush hour), just to determine that it was "quite possible someone blew a [traffic signal] light." !!?!? wha?? looks like vpd is watching too much csi. it is amazing to see that SUV, after reading that it was on its side and someone was ejected from it. I mean, from my angle, it looks undamaged. but you can see the passenger door frame is scratched up.

and cliff had:

comments: click to see cliff and clif.

and ed had:

comments: click to see a rushed video I made from my Tour De Gastown pics.

listening to: built to spill
comments: on my way to work this morning, I saw these guys working on the street. I recognized my good friend Mike, so I pulled out my camera. he hadn't recognized me quite yet, so if you click the photo, you get to see what it looks like when you walk up to "strangers" and take their photo. 'specially the other guy. he has no idea who I am. hee hee. they were fixing a broken fibre optic cable. tricky work. the food was pretty good, too. like kimbap run gently through a blender, then made into balls.

comments: click this pic to see how hot its been lately. how can you tell how hot it is from a photo of the sun breaking through clouds? well, look closely at the bottom right. there's the molson clock displaying 32ยบ!! yikes. and this was there was a bit of cloud cover and after 6pm. not typical vancouver weather. and for me it's crazy hot. if you also look close to the sun in that shot you can see a hawk that flew over me on the bridge.

comments: you want to click Ed's lunch. this is the coolest website I saw today. maybe even all month. draw a dude, then watch him dance. simple. yet endlessly exciting. and if you are insane, and that is not enough entertainment for you. I got one more pic. but before you click, make sure a) you are not eating. and b) you can handle being amused and grossed out at the same time. if you can't handle it, do not click here. Cuz I don't wanna hear about it.
