goodbye vivian dracula, hello bicycle?

from: ichibankan
price: $9.75
rating: &&&&/&&&&&
comments: this weekend marked the end of an era. Vivian Dracula has been scrapped. no more will she and I dart through traffic, listen to the rustle of the plastic bag window, or make the engine scream searching for the next gear. godspeed, vivian dracula, you were a great great car. click to see the last known photograph of her. even the city of vancouver mourns her passing. or so I figure. searching though the news, I could see no other reason the flag was at half mast.

and tommy had:

a delicious looking sandwich
comments: click tommy's sandwich to see why you should avoid broadway and cambie during the day. as I walked along broadway, I watch all those polluters and think what can I do about it? I can spend the $100 the BC government just gave me on gas. I can find another sweet old classic to rip up the roads in. but since I am now a part of the scrap-it program I need to decide which bike to get. a Ronin, or an infinity, or maybe the copenhagen?

rating: &&&&/&&&&&

comments: my lunch was out of focus. it made it a little tricky to eat, but I managed. if death disturbs you, do not click my lunch. no knife this time.... hmm... my guess? Professor Plum... the glass door... outside.

and travis had:

sandwich and a delicious looking tomato salad.
comments: tomatoes. amazing, aren't they? I hear all of our tech-ops team loves tomatoes. if you click travis' lunch, you will see Mike's new tattoos. mike has nothing to do with travis' tomatoes. and my money's on the dragon to win.

sushi combo with miso
from: Sushi Boy
price: $6
rating: &&&.5/&&&&&
listening to: george thoroughgood
comments: cheap sushi. doesn't taste bad, just not all that amazing. click to see a wiggly from the roof. there's a coke ad on our building, and it has a ladder leading down to the straw. just a prop ladder, methinks, but maybe if I climb down it I can drink from the straw picture.. hm..

talking to yourself like nobody's home

vietnamese subs
from: Bale
price: $8.25 (for 3)
rating: &&&&/&&&&&
listening to: guns n roses
comments: on the weekend, I went to some fathers day car shows in North Van. an italian one and one for oldsmobiles. it was very cool that both shows were right next to each other. and I got some hundreds of photos that I'll post on flickr eventually. and today's lunch was awesomely had on a rooftop across the street from Bale. click my lunch to see the view.

down and down and hit the floor

philly cheesesteak
from: Emelle's
price: about $10
rating: &&&&/&&&&&
listening to: the clash
comments: I was thinking about Emelle's name, and it occurred to me that this was just a fancy french sounding way to say "ML". then I googled it and it turns out that was indeed the case. know what else is interesting about this post? not much. but I'm gonna say it anyway. the spell checker in this blogger thinks that "philly" is not a word, but "cheesesteak", "googled" and "gonna" are just fine. interessant.

and teo had:

the chicken
comments: while I was up on the roof taking pics of the new construction beginning nest door, I was spotted. click teo's lunch to see viearn with an apple and a wave.

and dana had:

comments: click dana's lunch to see #1 Kingsway. that pic is actually wiggly because I had just had a few beers. it's nothing to do with my usual gif process.

soaking up the thirst of the land

jerk chicken roti
from: Cameo
price: $7ish (actually, it was free cuz tommy said he owed me moneys.)
rating: &&&&/&&&&&
listening to: ween
comments: a rather sad day at work today, as a handful of coworkers were laid off. and it wasn't me. I'm not sure if it's just jealousy or sadness I feel. either way, good luck to you guys. click my jerk roti to see our building breathe. I don't like when a new sign goes up there, cuz those dudes leave their gear on top of the escape hatch. jerks.

and I drank:

comments: click the ting to see our posse returning from lunch all reservoir dogs like. but wigglier.

and phil had:

and remick had:

some rice stuff
comments: click remick's lunch to see a mysterious wiggly. what is it? huh? what? I'll tell you something about it, I took it at 1/10000 sec shutter speed. that's what my new camera hack can do. so useful, huh? If you're wondering what daylight looks like at that speed, have a out the window. (I had to really crank up the shadows to see anything in that). fun.

shadows of the morning light, shadows of the evening sun

from: Swiss Bakery
price: $6.99 with a snausage roll
rating: &&&.5/&&&&&
listening to jane's addiction
comments: so yesterday I learned a lesson about walking around with 2 cameras in my hands. make sure the cameras have the same settings! accidentally I had cranked the ISO on one of them. bah. I thought this ruined my chances of making some sweet wiggly gifs. turns out I was wrong. click my samwitch to see a gif made with unmatched ISOs. I know! it's awesome! maybe it was because my syncing was perfect.

and yvette had:

thai curry
comments: click to see the studebaker I often seeing whilst walking home. the shots are well matched this time... but the gif just isn't as good. hmm... just when I think I am a master of wiggly gifs, I realize I still have so much to learn. aren't you glad you get to witness such learnings?

rating: &&&&/&&&&&

from: Argo's
price: $8
rating: &&&&/&&&&&
listening to: U2

club sandwich, fries and a pool or ketchup
comments: dave loves the club. click to see our Scrum King. the mightiest of all scrum kings, indeed.

double stacker meal
from: BK
price: $7.18
rating: &&&/&&&&&
listening to: weeeeen
comments: I kept the food simple today. but the double stacker seems a bit light compared to the baconator. next time... triple. click to see a murdered bird. kinda hard to look at, in more ways than one. my guess? colonel mustard. the kitchen knife. the grassy shoulder.

and noel had:

a crazy home made paninini
comments: yes, that is noel torturing his dog in that photo. poor sasha. click to see a video of some very complicated fortune telling. if you prefer, you can watch will ferrell doing it.
