gettin' crazy, anticipating lunch and music

from: mexico tacos rico
price: $10ish
rating: &&&&/&&&&&
listening to: Boston
comments: today was as halloweeny as it's gonna be in the office. since the real day is on Sunday. there were a few costumes around the office, including the winning one. personally, I voted for gavin's mad scientist costume. the costume was pretty tame, but the accessories were amazing! he built a jacob's ladder the night before, and brought in a functioning microwave cannon!! click my lunch to see that in action.

and yvette had:

3 tacos
comments: bill bailed on me for lunch. so I got to dine with yvette. and she got to try the amazing mango agua fresca for the first time. and after work, paul and eric recruited a bunch of us to help with a commercial they were shooting for a contest. you want to see it? you want to see me in a tie?!? of course you do. click yvette's lunch. go! go go go!

eternal lunch. eternal lunch.

monte christo
from: deacon's corner
price: $11ish
rating: &&&&/&&&&&
listening to: massive attack
comments: today I got mustard added to my monte cristo. it made it tastier. though, not my favourite kinda dijon. I think I was picturing more of a grey poupon when I ordered it. I wonder if that's Triumph's favourite mustard, too? click to see the staircase that leads to the roof of the office. moody.

and bill had:

veggie scrambles
comments: once again, I went through a day without taking any wiggly pics. so when I left the office, I quickly made some in the dark. the one linked from bill's lunch here is a classic fall shot. damn streetlight kept turning on and off, though. you can see it reflecting in the window on the right. oh well. btw, if you wanted more Fringe photos, I think they are done in the are. but this guy got tons of photos of it. in fact, I think he just goes around to movie sets and takes pics. his flickr is FULL of them.

that I would lunch everything that you do. and I do.

sushi combo c
from: sea monstr sushi
price: $9
rating: &&&&/&&&&&
listening to: the beatles
comments: finally tried sea monstr sushi! good quality food. I'm not sure why they left out the "e" though. maybe the intrnet has ruined evrything for evryone. anyway, like I said, quality food. but I doubt I'll be going there too often for lunch, since they really lack veggie options for bill. it's also very dark in there., hard to take pics. click to see a boston police car.

and erin had:

comments: erin seemed to mostly like it. she did mention that the rice was a bit soft. possibly over cooked. oh well. click to see more Fringe film sets. this wiggly... not so great. you can skip it.

and bill had:

chiso and cucumber rolls
comments: like I said before, the veggie options here are really lacking. but bill made do. click to see the ATM machine that we were lucky enough to sit next to. cute little fella...

so much time wasted, playing games with lunch

congee and bacon sandwich
from: The Boss
price: under $10
rating: &&&.5/&&&&&
listening to: lenny kravitz
comments: on the way to work, I walked through a film set. didn't know what it was for, but it's usually safe to guess it's for Fringe. and this time it was. I didn't know it was until I looked at the photos. click my lunch, see that Oldsmobile Vista Cruiser? that's obviously Peter and Walter's car. it's just funny that I didn't notice it at all when I was 3 feet from it. ha.

and richerd had:

congee and grilled cheese
comments: oddly, at The Boss, a grilled cheese will cost you 50 cents more than the bacon sandwich. processed cheese more expensive than bacon?? never! click to see a wiggly of daniel from last week.

pad thai leftovers
from: mali thai (originally)
price: dunno. these are leftovers now. you can't put a price on leftovers.
rating: &&&&/&&&&&
listening to: geoffrey oryema covering lenny cohen
comments: this mali thai place seems pretty good. I liked it. and they deliver. but this was reheated the next day. and... still good! no wigglies today. click to see a youtube video that shows many amazing physical feats. if you haven't seen this kinda thing on the internet in a while, this should catch you up. and remember kids, many of these stunt are performed by trained professionals... also, many are totally faked.

well it's late, and I want lunch. lunch is gonna break me in two

some kinda calzone
from: incendio
price: $16
rating: &&&&/&&&&&
listening to: bad company
comments: we tried to go to sea monster sushi again, but it was too busy. rather than waiting, we back-tracked to incendio where the smell of delicious had beckoned. this place always means spending $20. but it's worth it once in a while. very tasty. actually... I want a calzone again right now. mmmm... click to see more filming in the neighbourhood. is it Fringe? not sure.

and billy bob had:

a veggie calzone
comments: click bill's lunch for autumn.

of all the lunches you had, I was cleaning oil from the beaches

blue cheeseburger
from: the lamplighter
price: uh... $12ish?
rating: &&&/&&&&&
listening to: cake
comments: we tried to go to sea monster sushi today, but our gang was too big. so we went to the lamplighter. not the best food for the price, but lotsa seating room and beer. they also got a foosball table, but the state of it is not that great. pretty wobbly, sticky bars... not great. we didn't play on it. click to see and old truck at an old gas pump.

and gavin had:

beef dip
comments: gavin taught me something new today. I didn't know that there was flammable oils in the peel of a lime. did you? click to see proof.

and paul had:

sandwich n salad
comments: it was an honour to be in a donnely pub with a donnely. too bad he didn't own it. or there'd probably be a better foosball table. click paul's lunch to see bill giving eric a piggyback ride. oh you kids...

lunch was out to get me. that's the way it seemed.

irish stew
from: Burgoo
price: free! brian treated
rating: &&&&/&&&&&
listening to: the monkees
comments: on the weekend, I went to applefest at UBC with erin and richerd. click my lunch to see it. at the far right of that wiggly, erin and richerd are under that tent starting their failed apple eating contest. it failed because when we got there, there were already "apples sold out" signs up. yeah. an apple fest with no apples. well, there were some. they eat a total of 57 apple slices each. but they were eager for more. oh well, it gave me a chance to play with some infrared photos. it turns out that you really don't need to mod your camera to do this.

and brian had:

grilled cheese and tomato soup
comments: so, today, I met brian to take some photos of some recent renos he's done. click to see a renovated kitchen. nice work, huh? then he treated me to burgoo for lunch. good stuff. the soup and sandwich was a get-better lunch, cuz he was a bit sick. hope he's all better now.

rating: &&&&/&&&&&
listening to: built to spill
comments: today I experienced a invoke/hootsuite tradition. thanksgiving wraps from Steamrollers. there was a lot of them. and they were tasty. click to see the foosball table. sweet suite foosball.

everyone had:

comments: there were a lot of these wraps in the office. check out that stack! there was talk of an eating contest, but I don't think anyone went fro more than 2. maybe on the invoke side. but I think eric's 2 wrap coma was enough to keep people back. these things are quite filling. I only et 1.5. click to see some people enjoying their wraps.

fear not! bill had:

a veggie burger
comments: of course, bill didn't get to play our reindeer eating games. er... turkey eating, I mean. he went and got a veggie burger. click it to see him playing toxic foos. oh yeah, the other exciting thing that happened was that a wall got painted in the office, and the toxicity of it drove most of us to jj bean for a while.

rating: &&&&/&&&&&
listening to: death cab for cutie
comments: very good turn out at an impromptu navarikers reunion lunch. originally, yvette invited me to join her and dave. of course, I hijacked it and it turned into a 9 person lunch. good times. you can see every who was here in these photos. well, that is once you've clicked my lunch.

so we all shared:

mixed dishes
comments: congrats to phil s on his new found freedom. click to see what he gets to ride around on now that he's not locked in a dungeon anymore.

well, I guess we didn't all share:

cuz bill had his own veggie plate
comments: look at the top right of this photo. on that tv, chilean miners are being pulled out of a deep hole. hooray for that! and after lunch, my belated birthday present for bill arrived at the office. click to see it. it's awesome. it's a coffee mug. oh, I ruined it. no need to click now... or is there!?!?!

and bill had:

mexican scramble with avocado

and richerd had:

comments: richerd had to walk a bit slower than usual to lunch. cuz of the marathon he did on the weekend. click to see a certificate he could print out and put on the wall.

you don't believe that I lunch you

the french Elvis Cortez
from: LanaLou's
price: $10ish
rating: &&&&/&&&&&
listening to: ben haprer
comments: lanalou's again. still delicious. my lunch had the name 'cortez' in it. not sure why, but the painting at our table also looked like it could have been cortez. coincidence? anyway, click my pic to see a cool timelapse video. since I didn't make many wigglies today.

and bill had:

comments: click bill's nachos to see him creeping again. just look at that creeper's grin. frightening.

and gavin had:

comments: click gavin's lunch to see the painting I was talking about.

darling, I, can't get enough of your lunch babe

salmon benny
from: LanaLou's
price: $11ish
rating: &&&&/&&&&&
listening to: barry white
comments: we were very excited to find a brand new restaurant for lunch today. and it's only a block from the office! two doors down from HAVE cafe. I'd probably describe it as an upscale diner. it only opened yesterday. the menu only has breakfast items for now, but get in there and try it. it's good! also open on the weekends for brunch... I think she said they're open till about 5pm! now those are brunch hours I can get behind! click to see their beer taps.

and bill had:

tofu scramble
comments: that's another thing about this place, they got great veggie options. and they put a touch of cinnamon in their coffee. oh, and they use shot glasses for cream and sugar. overall, a very enjoyable dining experience. click bill's lunch to see him chilling in the lounge area at the front of the restaurant. did I mention they got interesting decor? including church pews for seats?

lunch, I get so lost sometimes

from: deacon's corner
price: $11ish
rating: &&&.5/&&&&&
listening to: peter gabriel
comments: as I was eating my lunch, it occurred to me... it needs mustard. then it would be nearly perfect. oh well. next time. meanwhile, you can click my lunch to see a building across the street from my office. the interesting part here is that may dad worked in that building. I'm guessing that was probably nearly 50 years ago. crazy.

and bill had:

veg burg
comments: click bill's lunch to see the aftermath of a small craft plane crash near the office. oh the humanities.

and phil had:

montecristo with dijon
comments: ok, so I guess the word of 'deacon's tuesday' has gotten out. as we're sitting there eating, phil and travis come strolling into the restaurant. long walk for them, I say. anyway, I told phil to get mustard on his sandwich. he had nothing to compare it to, but I think it was much better this way. since I didn't make enough wigglies today, click to see one of richerd in the NBA from last week.

and travis had:

biscuits n gravy n stuff
comments: click travis's lunch to see another wiggly from last week. I guess only half the wiggly is from last week. the other half is from 4 months ago. check it.
