burger with salad

and xtina and lauren shared:

a "lion"
comments: click to see the 'thompson' gang heading back to work. oddly, there were no pics of donald. like he has some kinda magic powers that keeps him out of photos. and christina was already gone, cuz she can only handle me in small doses, I guess.

and erwin had:

beef chow fun
comments: erwin said it was pretty bad too. I tried the beef. definitely better than mine. but nowhere near as good as ubc's old hong kong kitchen's chow fun. click the pic to see the biggest skateboard bail. huge. erwin posted it on his blog, but his video link is garbage. booo!

rating: &&&&.5/&&&&&

comments: a nice long walk to granville and nelson? helmken? anyway. an irish pub. what we thought zoltan's apartment would look like. but it never did. the burger was really good. the beer-battered fries were amazing. so good. click the pic to see our lunch crew posing with a picture of Zoltan that they had out front.

and morgan had:

mac n cheese
comments: morgan said the mac n cheese was really good. now click the pic to see where we went at the end of the day. yeah. the beach. the real beach. no east side beach, but jericho. nicky ed and I went to possibly the best place in the city to enjoy a summer pint. the jericho sailing centre. the funny thing is that I thought our $5.55 Kilkennys were expensive at johnnie fox's were expensive.... but at jericho, it was over $12 for two pints of Rickard's Red in plastic cups. iyiyiy. nice to be at the beach on a friday afternoon, though.

tell it like it is! yeah! word up!

it's thursday
listening to: Kool Thing by sonic youth and featuring chuck d?
comments: animated lunch! click the pic to see a REAL air freshner I saw on the ground. at first, I walked by it, and read it, then a few steps further, I realized what I had just read. what??? that's not scent! that's a road hazard!!! so, I think I should suggest a few new scents to that company. which one would you want in your car?
1, 2, 3, 4, or 5

and the cake was:

comments: click the pie to see silly politicians. these guys accosted us while we were enjoying the 'main street days' a while back. ridiculous. that lady came running up to us and said. "hey guys!! look who's here!! it's Michael!" as if I was supposed to know this suit?! iyiyiyi! so that look of excitement on erin's face is actually bewilderment. and they were dragging around Sisi from canada's next top model. so lame. they run through and take all these pictures so it looks like they're down with the people. they weren't down. they were crazy. and yes, that is geoff glave in that pic, too. haha.
