That would be the story for most. Eat lunch out of necessity and then back to work.
Matt and I, on the other hand, have turned it into our own personal variety show. We love our food and all and can talk about it all day, but I think lunch hour represents a chance to just riff on whatever the hell we want. Very few people we interact with understand that concept. Coworkers give us that smile that says "Aren't you two middle aged adults cute going out to lunch together each day. Do you carry each other's books to class too?" Guess what? We like it, there's nothing homoerotic about it and it affects you in no way. So do me a favor, move on. Thank you.
I won't bore you with the food details today, but will let you in on our topic du jour. It was all things "overrated". It ranged from foods, to movies, to music, to holidays. I'll let Matt start it off with his top 3.
2) New Year's Eve - I really love the holidays. This day though is the beginning of the end for me and I'll tell ya why. #1 Christmas is over = Sad, #2 have to go back to work right after New Years day = Sad, #3 "Auld Lang Syne" - I get choked up every time I hear it = Sad, and last but no least #4 I have to hear everyone's New Years resolutions. Everyone goes out to join a gym. Everyone joins Weight Watchers. Smokers buy the Electronic Cigarette. Everyone updates their resume and everyone starts a new money management plan. All down the drain in week to 10 days...
3) Madonna - Not sexy. I can't remember her last good song. Voice stinks.
1)Seinfeld - go ahead, rip me a new one. I get it. I know I am in the minority with this one but I've never laughed once the few times I've watched the show. Jerry does the same schtick over and over, George annoys me to no end and Kramer with the sliding into the room, just not funny to me. Runner-up: Cheers - Was Norm really that funny or interesting?
2)U2 - another case of blasphemy, I know. They just bore me to death. The older stuff was decent but only went in the wrong direction as the years went by. I can only hope they continue to fail miserably with the Spider Man project. A little ego in check would be nice. Runner-up: Dave Matthews Band - zzzzzzzzzzzz
3)Crab cakes - maybe I've never had one prepared the right way, but I'm always disappointed whenever I eat one of these. I hear people rant and rave about them but I always find them a bit tasteless. Very little bang for the buck. Runner-up: French onion soup - c'mawn, it's about the cheese only.
