Today is Medina Kabob, a little restaurant on the other side of town. I'll probably have a veggie samosa, gyro, and hummus.

Today I treated myself to McDonalds - Quarterpounder with cheese meal. Feel quite sleepy now.

The woman say across from me is eating some generic crisps (chips to you) from a huge bag. She is filling her fist with them and cramming them in her mouth. The greasy smell and the sound is making me feel quite ill - I might have to go back out of the office....

They actually call them QP's over there? I know you guys still use Imperial measurements in the UK, but I thought maybe Royale was the standard name across Europe.

Breakfast sounds good, it being 8am here in St. Louis. I never did have those pancakes Saturday...

They are still QPs, yes. I wonder if they'll change when we finally go metric? I reckon they'll be one of the last things to go, if so. Along with miles....

It might be because we're quite good at calling things by foreign names in the UK. But more likely that we got McDonalds before the rest of Europe (this is a guess btw) and therefore before a name change was deemed necessary.

The name will change to "113 Grammer".

Vincent: And you know what they call a... a... a Quarter Pounder with Cheese in Paris?
Jules: They don't call it a Quarter Pounder with cheese?
Vincent: No man, they got the metric system. They wouldn't know what the fuck a Quarter Pounder is.
Jules: Then what do they call it?
Vincent: They call it a Royale with cheese.
Jules: A Royale with cheese. What do they call a Big Mac?
Vincent: Well, a Big Mac's a Big Mac, but they call it le Big-Mac.
Jules: Le Big-Mac. Ha ha ha ha. What do they call a Whopper?
Vincent: I dunno, I didn't go into Burger King.

I love the way Vincent says it when he and Jules are about to smoke those kids.

We're having a pot luck at my office today. So far I have ingested as much food as I usually do in one day and it is not yet noon. We have everything from crab dip to creme filled cupcakes.

I had some chicken breast strips...because I'm obsessed with boobies.

That was actually breakfast...April and I will probably have lunch after I'm done at the doctor.

When I was walking through the market at lunch today I walked into a pungent waft of garlic. I'm not sure where it came from, but it got into my head that I just had to have chicken kiev for lunch.

Now this used to be a staple of every pub menu as far as I remember, but I ended up wandering halfway across town without finding any.

In the end I compromised - in the last pub before work I had a pint of Diet Pepsi, gammon & pineapple with chips and peas and a grilled tomato (which I didn't eat - bleurgh). Oh and a portion of garlic bread on the side.

Have promised myself as soon as I stop working here I will go back to eating healthily - I've just got a real end of term feeling at the moment.
