Let's Do Lunch

"I'll have my people call your people and we'll set up a lunch."

Whether you're a high-profile Hollywood mogul or a lowly office worker wanting an hour away from the grind LUNCH is a popular mid-day break.

Lunch started as short break around the middle of the day between two more substantive meals at the beginning and ending of the day.  These days it's the social highlight of the day.

Be it a brown bag in an office lunch room.  A quick run to a fast-food joint.  Or a liesurely "business" luncheon.  Everyone stops and eats.

It might be lunch at a restaurant where they make lunch just like mom used to make...



It might be lunch in the animal kingdom.  They have to eat, too...




These guys give new meaning to "out to lunch"...



You may want to theft-proof your lunch.  Here's one way...




Some people have a liquid lunch...



Some people tie one on...



Some over eat.  The just don't know when to quit...


The Japanese give their customers a choice of fast food.  It redifines "a quickie"...


Speaking of which, here's one of my all-time favourite lunch scenes from the movies.  It's from the movie "When Harry met Sally"...





Head on over to Theme Thursday to see what other bloggers had for "lunch" today!

I would totally have Meg Ryan for lunch.

Is this not where you were going with that?
California Girl said…
You know, I don't think I ever thought about when the cafeteria people ate. Those poor folk. Kids abuse them so much.
Don said…
For me lunch is/was usually nothing more than a cold beer break. Worked for me.
Me-Me King said…
Mercy, is it hot in here or is it just me?

Brian: The killer's the line "I'll have what she's having."
nonamedufus said…
HH: Thanks. Hungry?
nonamedufus said…
Moooooog: Come for the egg salad, stay for the orgasm!
nonamedufus said…
California Girl: Yeah, but they know what went into the food! That's why you never see them eating.
nonamedufus said…
Don: Lunch? I thought beer was the "breakfast" of champions?
nonamedufus said…
Me-Me: Um, ah, I don't know.
VE said…
I love the anti-theft bag. I would have invented something like that. I hate when people come up with my ideas before I've thought of them...d'oh!
nonamedufus said…
VE: Yeah, it looks like a bad balogna sandwich.
C.M. Jackson said…
lunch was never so good and funny--thanks and I'll have what she's haveing;-)
I love lunch, but not with people. I like to grab a book or a paper and eat alone while I read. Don't know why that is, because I'm pretty social the rest of the time. Downright effusive, in fact. But lunch is me time, if I have a choice.
nonamedufus said…
C.M.: Glad you enjoyed it!
nonamedufus said…
Mike: Maybe if you slowed down and chewed with your mouth closed other people might eat with you! ;)

I love the fact that I get an entire hour for lunch, which means I can buzz home and relax with the Wonder Dog before heading back into the fray.
Uh..."Racist Corn Dog Contest"? I think that photo deserves a follow-up of some kind.

I'd think of something clever, but I'm off to lunch.

Frank: Do you think the guy looks like Glenn Beck? If the T-shirt fits...
PattiKen said…
Great pictures. And the "Sally's lunch" scene is always hilarious, no matter how many times you see it. Thanks for a good lunchtime laugh.
nonamedufus said…
PattiKen: Did you know that was director Rob Reiner's mother in that scene who says "I'll have what she's having"?
Baino said…
Those baggies are genius!
nonamedufus said…
Baino: It's not easy being green!

Freakin' hysterical. The construction dudes are just too creepy. I can't even eat in high heels.

Hey, if you want the video to fit just change the width in the beginning and end to 430 in the html before you publish the post.
Dreamhaven said…
Great places and types of lunch. Now I have to watch that movie
nonamedufus said…
Jayne: ...lunch in high heels! Good line. I changed the vid width to 340, and it worked! Thanks.
nonamedufus said…
Dreamhaven: The movie's a classic. Very funny film.
Jaime said…

nonamedufus said…
Jamie: How do you like them? Rare or well done?
Uh..."Racist Corn Dog Contest"? I think that photo deserves a follow-up of some kind.

I'd think of something clever, but I'm off to lunch.

My Back Pages - November

I read five books last month bringing my year to date total to 61, well past the 50 I estimated at the beginning of the year. And I've yet to get through December.

The month started out with The Nix, the debut novel by Nathan Hill which has been receiving a lot off positive reviews. In it Hill flips back and fourth from the 1968 Chicago protests and 2011 in a desperate search for the truth behind why his mother abandoned him at an early age. In between Hill takes on politics, the media and addiction as well as other aspects of society. It's a well-spun tale and I quite enjoyed reading it.

Next up was the auto-biographical I Am Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame. This was somewhat of a scattered affair but an interesting read nonetheless. Wilson - or his ghostwriter - however is no Hemingway.

Then it was on to one of my favourite authors, Ian Rankin and his latest tale of now retired Inspector John Rebus, Rather Be The Devil. I never tire of these stories and this is the 21st in …

Traveling Along Singing A Song

Pete and Paulie were strolling along one day. The sun was bright, the air was cool, the birds chirped crazily in the trees and the squirrels  munched merrily on their nuts. Well not their nuts exactly. Nuts they found on the ground and in the gardens in the park.

Paulie felt so good he began to whistle. It wasn't any tune in particular, just one of those annoyingly tuneless whistles that wandered all over the place. Pete looked at Paulie and he squiggled up his nose and he said "What the hell is that?" Paulie replied "Oh nothing in particular. I'm just happy." "But you're not even whistling a tune" said Pete. Paulie replied "If you're so wise I'd like to see you do better, Pete."

Pete went silent for a moment and seemed to mumble to himself for a moment or two. Then he cleared his throat with a little cough, he opened his mouth and he began to sing.
