fall in lunch and get married then boom

spinach and feta twisted delight
from: cobb's breads
price: $6
rating: &&&/&&&&&
listening to: tom waits
comments: you know, I like cobb's breads. but I don't love it. how do they charge so much for average breads? I don't get it. take the twisted delights, for example. these are about 8 little pull apart bread snacks. which are very tasty in the middle. but the end ones barely have any filling stuffs in them. so, really, only 6/8 of them are really good. the rest are meh. and that's $6?? anyway, click to see my ferry ride home from salt spring. or, look here to see the crofton cloud factory in action.

price: $10ish
rating: &&&&/&&&&&
listening to: ZZ Top
comments: today's lunch was really breakfast. but I ate no lunch later, so it's lunch too. erin and I tried this diner down at the very end of main street. past the cop shop, past the number 5 orange. it was pretty good. I'd rank it pretty much about the same as Nice Cafe. possibly better? but a bit more pricey. next time I go, I think I'll have the chicken fried steak! click to see a wiggly from that neighbourhood.

and erin had:

and noel had:

the sandwich special
comments: noel spearheaded this meeting. does that word work there┬┐ do meetings get spearheaded. well, anyway, he had a good point about this being not the best location for a meeting. I guess it is a bit loud on a friday. guess we'd have to book a pub to ourselves next meeting.

and yiting had:

some nachos
comments: yiting also had some stout. as did phil and I. click to see a wiggling chalice of stout. that is the first time I ever typed that sentence. too bad it's out of focus.

rating: &&&&/&&&&&
listening to: led zeppelin
comments: birthday ramen for me! yay! I thought I was old last year, but no. now I'm even older! click my lunch to see a present that Remick got me. the delivery was the best, just a mustang on my desk when I got in. shudder. it took me a while to figure out who it was from, and when I did figure it out, he held up the charger sitting on his desk and asked if I wanted to trade. haha! thanks remick! and thanks everyone who donated towards the gigapan! I got more than 1/2 the needed money, so I will be ordering one... just as soon as they get them back in stock.

rating: &&&&&/&&&&&
comments: I finally got to try the restaurant where erin cooks! and wow, when a cook comes to dinner, they get some awesome treatment. you can see the cake there that was made for me. I didn't actually get a chance to eat it (its in my fridge), cuz we kept getting treats from the kitchen. and when I say treats, I mean really good stuff. it was too dark to take any decent photos with the camera I had, but man, it was good. venison, prawns, fois gras, pear frangipane, tuna, sorbet, truffle mashed potatoes, lamb... these were just some of the fantastic foods at our table. click to see the very last foods we got. yum!

comments: I met andy for ramen today. ramen is good. click to see an infrared wiggly of the city. doesn't the photo look like it was taken decades ago? magic! each frame was actually a 30 second exposure. so many good wigglies today. I have decided that my D40 is the best camera I have to make single-camera-wigglies with.

and andy had:

shoyu ramen
comments: dear viewers, for years I have been presenting you with food pics and wigglies to brighten your day. never, do I ask for anything back from you. well, never ends today. I had this idea, that I wanted a gigapan robot for my camera picture takings. but I can't justify spending $500 for something like this when I'm about to be out of work again. I came up with the solution. I just need to find 25 people willing to give me $20 for my birthday next tuesday! genius, right? I know! so, dear reader, if you see me in the next week or so, slip me and 20, and I promise you will get to see some amazing gigapannery! 7 people have already kindly given me such a gift. only 18 more to go!

rating: &&&.5/&&&&&
listening to: tom jones
comments: I tried the Sin Bin for the first time today. it's where Cameo's used to be. very similar burgers (same buns, same cajun fries), but just not nearly as good as it used to be. I wonder where the cook from cameo's went. she knew how to make a burger. click to see the lions, and you can stop wondering where they are.
