another industrial ugly morning

"loaded" steakhouse burger
from: Burger King
price: $8ish
rating: &&&/&&&&&
listening to: the police
comments: after seeing Darren have one (below), I had to try BK's new Steakhouse burger. but I tried the one with mashed potatoes in it. kinda weird. kinda good. but not that good. doesn't come close to mcdonalds' angus burger. no no. click my lunch to see 3 little gulls up on a rooftop. after watching 5 young gulls hopping on the rooftops across the lane (must've been their first trip from the nest, couldn't quite fly yet), I went up on our roof to find that there were 11 young gulls on the neighbouring buildings. this explains why they've been so edgy when I visit the roof lately. still, I couldn't spot any nests. odd.

and darren had:

unloaded steakhouse burger.
comments: I think the non-loaded one is probably better. they both come with these little fried onion bits. pretty good. but not great. and for that price? get an angus burger. click darren's lunch to see some shiny balls I sawr. and in other news, a LATV viewer starts a ska band

comments: I got this wrap. it was tasty enough, but it done fall apart. ascii sad face. click to see some very odd parking. there was an empty spot there, and this vw was up against the other car. what the!? this pic almost inspired me to start a new blog called "what the hell happened here?" where people could post pictures of odd things, then in the comments they could come up with theories as to what happened. like this one, my theory is that someone was in a rush to get to work, and was parking but just gave up and left the car in the middle of parking. hmm.. but another blog? really? nah.

angus burger n such
from: McD's

rating: &&&&/&&&&&
listening to: Lamb.
comments: the angus burger is still delicious. in the linked photo today, I present a giant crane moving behind the city. the gif is rather big, so it'll take a while to load. this crane is very interesting. it's vancouver's newest AND largest. it can move 2 containers at once, while all our other cranes only move one. they had to wait for the lowest of tides to move it under the Lion's Gate. a dude from navarik got photos of this from somewhere downtown. crazy!
