goodbye navarik!!

brioche bun and muffin
from: Swiss Bakery
price: $2.40 x 100?
rating: &&&&&/&&&&&
comments: so, today was my final day at navarik. I thought it was about time I gave props to Swiss Bakery, and the girls there who've made my mornings delicious for the past year or so. you see, every morning I go in and get a muffin and a brioche bun. the muffin is breakfast, the brioche bun is because the muffin isn't quite enough, and it's only 70 cents. so, after a while of getting the same food, they started pre-packaging it for me, and having it ready every time I came in. so nice. thanks swiss bakery girls! oh, and click to see my final tally for top-listened songs while I was at navarik. its a little scary to realize that most of the top 20 were video game related songs (see red dots).

ok, this post is getting way too big and out of control. one more thing I'd like to say, it's been fun working with you all, and I'm sure some of us will again! ok, ONE more thing to say, something I noticed while posting this, every time I leave a job, I eat burgers. I did it at webct and atimi and now here. where next? who knows. not me.

and hey ritchie had:

comments: click ritchie's pho to see bill killed. crushed this time, by a large metal beam. true story. oddly, the next linked wiggly is also true. he fell off the roof to his killing.

and the nice ladies gave us:

spring rolls... on the house!
comments: that's right, we were given this spring roll for free. yay! for no apparent reason. I have a feeling that they were like "omg.. that's gwilli from LATV! we should give then some free food!" and so that's probably what happened. and this was not your usual spring roll. it seemed to have squash or pumpkin in it. it was quite tasty. and getting it as a bonus, just makes me like that place even more. it's upstairs... on main street... above BaLe. go there sometime. you 'll like it.

I'm a lunch man! oooh baby, I'm a lunch man!

beef udon and a spicy tuna roll
from: Tamaki Sushi (broadway near arbutus)
price: $10ish
rating: &&&&/&&&&&
listening to: Otis Redding
comments: Andy had to do some insurance dealings with Wawanesa today, so we drove west. and tried this sushi place. it was not bad. not amazing, but cheap, and pretty tasty. in the linked pic, you see a mountain peak, and some rocky peaks. this photo was in response to a phone call I got from Ed on the weekend, where he thought he was seeing some new part of the mountain, that neither he nor I had ever noticed before. I was thinking may be it was a house dropped by the aliens on friday, but it seems to just be a rock formation. and upon investigation old flickr photos, the rocks were always there. of course, this probably means two things: 1) the aliens made their base look like rocks. 2) the aliens edited all past photos on the internet so's to not arouse suspicions.

and andy had:

box B
comments: andy thought the same about the food here. decent, cheap, but nothing to write home about. click to see a freezer I noticed at the superstore. it seems when frozen items leak, they see no point in cleaning them out. makes for an interesting wiggly, as I see it.

and yvette had:

chili chicken con queso
comments: yvette had this as take out from Argo's. it looked tasty. I've had it before. it is pretty good. click to see Nikita working on her goggie treat.
