Sadly, a McChicken and a Double Cheeseburger with a medium Sprite. Paid in quarters. Paycheck's late again. Dammit.

Aaah. The end-of-pay-period special. I get that all the time, except without the drink. It's not so sad. You pay $2.08 for decent fast food that fills you up.

I skipped lunch today because I was working on the yearbook, but I hit the drive-through at Taco Bell for a 7-Layer Burrito and a grilled, stuffed, chicken enchilada burrito. That will probably end up being lunch, as I'm sure I'll find something to eat later and call that dinner.

And a huge glass of ice water.

You got it, my paycheck-to-paycheck brother. I'm usually pretty good about budgeting myself from one check to the next, but when payroll's off, my arteries always pay the price.

Ask him, the next time you see him, how long it took for the sound of the Carpenters to stop bouncing around in his head.

I went to Panda Express. Orange chicken and chicken with string beans with half chow mein, half steamed rice. And a Diet Pepsi.

My wife and youngest son came downtown to join me and Gail of HawaiiDiner.com for lunch at Brasserie Du Vin, the latest brainchild of Dave Stewart (behind Indigo and Bar 35). What an incredibly charming place, and of course the food is pretty good too. The wine list is huge, but we didn't go there, unfortunately.



We opened with the pomme frites (french fries), then shared dijon chicken with greek olives, grilled andouille sausage risotto, and a soft shell crab panini. For dessert, creme brulee. Yum yum yum! But you really have to visit if only for the little touches, the decor... the sunny French courtyard, the quaint private room in back, the copper-topped bar...

Wow Ryan! Pix from Du Vin look great...I've been wanting to check out that place for some time now.

My lunch consisted of NZ Corned Beef Cabbage/Onions and rice.

McDonald's. Sorry. Wasn't in the mood to actually make food decisions today, so that's the easiest option.
Chicken Selects meal - Buffalo sauce, Coke.

I has a pizza bread from the swap meets.



Yeah some vendors sell lots of yummy bread at Kam/Aloha Swap Meet and I buy every weekend. I like the cream cheese one, too

Bacon and avocado sandwich and diet coke at La Mariana. Another post-Mortuary lunch. So glad that's over. The mortuary...not La Mariana! Annette was at her table and Corky was in his cage.

egg salad sandwitch, a tuna sushi roll, and a bottle of coke

(surprisingly, I found out that the red stuff in the sushi is shrimp flake)

Had an early Christmas lunch with my dad at Kincaid's at Ward Warehouse. I'm still not sold on the food, but the lunch "buzz" of meetings and deals and friendly conversation suits me fine. I had their "teriyaki steak sandwich," a lunch special... but it wasn't all that special. What matters, though, is the company!
