    Lunch today

    I am sitting at my desk today for lunch. I purchased the combo from the office cafeteria which runs about $5.99. A combo includes a sandwich, soft drink, and chips. Yes, I know, but there wasn't an opportunity to purchase a Gyro today.

    Instead I went with the good, ol' Roast Beef and cheese which has always been a penguin favorite. For the chips, I selected Baked Lays. Originally, I wasn't a believer in the whole "baked" chip concept, but I am really becoming a fan.

    Maybe I should stop using the forum lounge as a pseudo-blog. Who knows?

    By the way, the snow and ice yesterday left my driveway with a weird 1 inch thick snow covering that was rocky and uneven. It reminded me of Europa, and I found it fun to walk and listen to the crackle from my feet.
    Here..maybe... do you smell something fishy?

    We are going to O'Harley's today for lunch. It is an interesting mix of Irish-biker restaurant. And throw in some Italian dishes

    I was actually thinking of some noodles, although normally I get the grilled cheese. Not very exciting, but it is comfort food. ANd the fries are yum-o (as Rachael Ray would say).

    The dew dried on my driveway before I actually woke up. It is supposed to be a chilly 76 today...burrr....I did think about logging onto LL Bean for a spring jacket, but changed my mind.

    Right now I have a Motorola a630 phone and an iPAQ rx3115. I downgraded from the hx4705 because I just don't use my pda as much as I used to.

    I am looking at getting another 7100t to replace the Moto. I bought one here from EH, but I couldn't make it work instead of my smartphone. But it is enough to replace a cell phone Just trying to find a good price. T-Mobile has had some issues with email alerts and the moto; issues since 12/15/04, which is why I am looking at the bb.

    It actually was a refreshing experience. With some group help I was able to get over the "but it's not the best one!" syndrome and move on to the "it's the best one for my needs" I am not completely healed, hence the search for a blackberry...

    Really it just means I get to spend more on my tablet pc

    How about an i700 on Verizon to a Motorola (too old to be "Moto") T720! That's right, T720! This phone is still analog capable!. Beat that!
    Mark (waiting for the I730)

    PS ribeye steak sandwich fresh made from a local market (LaBonnes) in Watertown, Cracker Jacks and a Coke.

    MEG, at this rate I'll end up with a T720

    mwfielder, I went with the Toshiba M205-S810. After upgrading the RAM, I have been quite happy. Although the WriteShield was a tad on the expensive side, it went on as smoothly as a pda.

    Blog away.... too busy for a formal lunch like usuall... but I found some homemade Oatmeal cookies (they were fresh) and an orange under my car seat. The way my wife makes oatmeal cookies, they are a meal in themselves.

    I like Roast Beef and definitely the McDonalds. Rib Eye... mmmm... Rib Eye! I have never heard of Cracker Jacks as a side though.

    I do not know if I could eat Spaghetti every meal but it definitely works for dinner. Spaghetti is a risky lunch food, Stainage is a high probability.

    I do not think I am a fan of the ice cream or oatmeal cookie lunches. Although I enjoy both, they are more my 4:00 snack so that I can make it until dinner around 8:00.

    Cold Stone Creamery has that Sweet Cream which is the same stuff that is in the middle of the Ice Cream Sandwich... sooooo good!

    Order the Birthday Cake remix, definitely worth the 8.2 Billion calories.

    The ribeye was good and I started using Cracker Jacks because, well, there is not enough sugar in the regular Coke....

    hehehe, we went from 73 degrees on Monday to 32 and snow on Tuesday. Lunch was obtained from a run to the border (Taco Bell) in whiteout conditions. The Southwest Steak Bowl was quite tasty. Kept my coworkers away for the required four hours.

    I had a Wendy's Classic Double today. Dave Thomas would be proud. However it is burning a whole in my stomach. Why do I insist on eating crap?
