maybe you will find a lunch that you discover accidentally

rating: &&&&/&&&&&
listening to: paul simon
comments: today david had to drive to yaletown. so we joined him and ate there. not bad food and surprisingly not that expensive.

comments: click david's lunch to see his fuzzy dice.

and eric had:

comments: since eric's lunch is wiggly, click to see a non-wiggly pic of the ahi tuna we had as an appy. it had an interesting ponzu sauce. kinda like bbq sauce, really. pretty tasty.

and bill had:

veggie burger
comments: lastly, click bill's lunch to see him and eric performing some interpretive dance. or perhaps they're fighting. or perhaps they're trying to reach something they dropped. there's just no saying what's happening there, really.

I always thought those LED xmas light wigged out my eyes, but I never knew why. now I do... if you click my lunch, you will see a wiggly made of shots shot at 1/160th of a second. this is much faster than our eyes can process, it turns out. see the way the lights move in that wiggly? well here's how they look to our eyes. crazy, huh? I thought so.

and bill had:

veggie scramble
comments: click bill's lunch to see a wiggly of toby drumming. well, almost drumming. if you want to see him drum, go check out this show next month.

comments: much to bill's dismay, vivian also had the last juice special of the day. haha. now click her lunch to see the awesome ice cube tray she brought me back from japan.

and craig had:

the same as me.
comments: or did I have the same as him. click to see a telus ad. it confuses me. what's that stain? and why are the lions so interested in it?

and bill had:

comments: click for one more wiggly. although, you can't really read the sign in this wiggly, the gist is that the city of vancouver demands that the owner of this empty, decaying building should remove the graffiti off it, or they'll do it for them. at a price of about $2000. annoying. that's what empty decaying buildings are for! to express oneself! in argentina, gregchan went on a tour of the local graffiti. in vancouver, there'll be none of that, thank you. sigh... at least I still get offered crack every time I walk home from work. #priorities.

comments: another monday, another lunch at home. and there's nothing like star trek figures to spice up my lunch, huh? on the weekend, I had me new camera and me lensbaby out for a walk. since I got the crazy ISOs now, I figured I could use my lensbaby at night for the first time. turns out its even harder to focus that thing when it's dark outside. but still some interesting shots. click to see one that had a little focus in it. or, check out this one that has no focus at all. who needs focus?

got nothing but lunch for you just because

splitz burger deal plus splitz fries

rating: &&&&/&&&&&
listening to: kanye
comments: eric had to move his car at lunch. so we ended up helping him move it... all the way to splitz. yum. and I finally got to try something other than the lamburger. cuz they have this mon-thurs special... $5 for burger and drink. of course, saving all that money meant I should get splitz fries and bacon. but I do declare... the burger there is nearly as delicious as the lamburger.

and eric had:

burger, too
comments: today's wigglies were made whilst walking home through a dark and empty chinatown.
