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 - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…
