As I'm lazy and have no concept of planning/ food shopping, I almost always buy lunch. If I go to the market my lunches are never more than 6 dollars and are generally more than I can eat (or at last enough to stuff me). One less thing to remember, not much more expensive than bringing my own food, I don't have to make/bring anything and WAY more tasty. Now that my summer student buddy (I used to baby sit him) has gone to university I tend to get some take out, find a nice spot and sit and read a book for an hour. Really helps me unwind in the middle of the day. In fact its time to do that RIGHT NOW.

Once the winter starts I may have to start sitting inside in the main hall of the BCE place on the steps of the old bank facade.

yo shiz...thats BS he should give you the full greeting back...no infidel would give the greeting thats the point...I was taught if someone says it they part 'a the team...nah I mean?

I cook dinner every night.. leftovers for me most days. Otherwise I buy stuff in the market or on Baldwin.

Actually, I like the people I work with and we go to tasty places. It's not a "working lunch" thing, it's us taking a 2 hour lunch and acting like idiots every Friday afternoon! Today we had a plethora of west indian food (oxtail, curry goat, ackee/salt fish, etc).

Looks like a junior/velo-kid. I wouldn't laugh tho...he looks pretty serious. There is one kid down there on a super nice Colnago...Mavic wheels....and he burns it up there. Be happy you don't have to race him.

You needs a blue star to moderate. The red star might go w/ your Alpha Flight costumes better, but the blue stars are the ones w/ the power.
