So, uh, how’s work going? Good? Family? Good? How’s that sandwich treating you?

I hope you are eating a food that is round.

This is an open thread to talk about whatever we want while we eat lunch. Sound good? Let’s get to it.

  • George Lynch

    Well…. my wife and I are trying to buy a 30 acre farm. We have to sell our house we are in now to do it. My dad farms, so we will be able to do much of the farming ourselves. Pretty stressful time to be honest…It will be great if it all works out though!

    GL

    • Mr. Bojangles

      Farming is so metal. Once I have mustered a goblin army I will come pillage your farm.

      (=^-^=)

    • CyberneticOrganism

      Can I record an EP in your barn?

      • George Lynch

        Yes of course!

        GL

      • Xan

        Barn EPs are extremely metal.

        • George Lynch

          Speaking of metal object… Anyone like early Metal Church???
          The album cover is metal as fuck

          “NO ONE WILL EVER KNOW, IT WASSS YOUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!!!!”

          • Xan

            That was amazing.

          • Cock of Steele

            I should have bought this last time I went to the record store

      • W.

        When I was in a band many winters ago, we used to practice in the abandoned warehouse portion of a government research facility. I felt more metal standing on hunks of industrial refuse and screaming.

  • Mr. Bojangles

    Mr. Bojangles would like tuna please. With Joe’s soul in it.

    (=^-^=)

    • KJM

      Coming right up!

  • FeelTheDarkness

    I had a delicious roast beef sammich today

  • Tyree

    That’s so kind of you Joe to ask! I just had a Italian sub for lunch from the gas station up the road. As for my family, well………

    • Let me know how that gas station hoagie is treating you in a couple of hours!

      • Tyree

        Dude it’s be a couple hours. My poor gut is singing to me now.

  • I’m having one of my peasants cook me a four-meat pizza.

    • Mr. Bojangles

      and I will make you feed it to me in small snack-size pieces.

      (=^-^=)

  • webb71

    I am currently procrastinating and I don’t plan on being productive any time soon.

  • About to get some tacos!

    • bro… bro… what kind?

      • Deputy Dipshit

        FISH TACOS!

        • Tyree

          I lather those babies up with hot sauce and devour away.

          • W.

            Do y’all have cholula in the Yankee part of the country?

          • Tyree

            Yeah dude!!!

          • cholula and fish tacos go together like frozen pizza and sriracha

          • Steve Smithwick

            At the good spots? Yeah, man, definitely. I grew up in South Florida, so I was waaaaay worried about the state of Latin Food in Maine. And to be honest, most of it IS mediocre Americanized imitation bullshit run/owned/prepared by white people.

            However, I did find a spot near the apartment that is really, really good. Open kitchen behind the counter, and most of the folks behind it are speaking spanish (including the white kids!). The food is supreme, and pretty legit. They make a good fish taco.

      • Mr. Bojangles

        BOR BRO BRO BRO BRO

        you silly humans and your stupid names

      • One chicken, one pork.

    • JWG

      Taco… Wednesday. Doesn’t have the same ring to it…

  • LAMENTATIONS OF THE WOMEN

    I remember days like this when my father took me to the forest and we
    ate wild blueberries. More than 20 years ago. I was just a boy of four
    or five. The leaves were so dark and green then. The grass smelled sweet
    with the spring wind.

    • CyberneticOrganism

      Crom laughs at your spring wind. He laughs from his mountain.

      • LAMENTATIONS OF THE WOMEN

        For us, there is no spring. Just the wind that smells fresh before the storm.

    • Steve Smithwick

      Sounds like Maine, what with the wild blueberry fields.

  • W.

    I typically pack my own lunch. Today I brought a ham sandwich, some baby carrots, a banana, a nectarine, and some pretzels. I washed it down with a 7.5-oz can of diet Mountain Dew.

    • George Lynch

      How is the wound from last week treating ya?

      GL

      • W.

        It’s actually pretty much healed up now. I stopped taking the antibiotics because my stool was very loose.

        • Tyree

          Back to poop talk again Dubya. Proud of ya!

      • webb71

        Yes and is the evil assassin hawk still alive and well?

        • W.

          He is indeed, although I haven’t seen him on my last few runs.

          • LAMENTATIONS OF THE WOMEN

            ROLL COAL Bro!

          • i’ve seen this so many times today, and it’s never not funny!

          • Fromwisdomtohate29

            Gather Cheney and a special team and hunt that fucker down ASAP.

    • MoshOff

      W. WITH PRETZELS, SOMEONE CALL THE SECRET SERVICE

  • Deputy Dipshit

    Currently at work coughing up my lungs. Who gets sick in the summer?! This shit sucks. No appetite. Just want to throw on some music, take the train home and queue up some Netflix.

    Turkey sangwich!

    • W.

      Get better, Dep!

      • Deputy Dipshit

        Thanks, W.! This shit is miserable.

  • ChuggaChuggaDeedleyDoo

    Working through lunch :/ But here’s a metal song about lunch.

  • webb71

    lol there is only 1 comment on the mutilation rites review on that poser metal blog called metalsucks.

    • Tyree

      Lol. I’m not even going to check. New Mutilation Rites is very good though.

    • George Lynch

      We should spam the site. MS that is…

      Just keep posting… POSER POSER POSER POSER POSER etc…

      GL

      • LAMENTATIONS OF THE WOMEN

        spamming it with links to the toilet sends a much stronger message

        • I honestly wonder when they’re going to add our name to the spam filter.

          • webb71

            Once they do that I will just use my alter ego.

          • LAMENTATIONS OF THE WOMEN

            clearly, based on the visits we’ve had from Vince, and now AXL today…they covet what is happening here, so that’s doubtfull

          • W.

            Methinks that wasn’t the real Axl seeing as how he started his name with “le”.

          • LAMENTATIONS OF THE WOMEN

            agree. Looking at Disqus profile….says metalsucks.com. An very poor impersonator. This person needs to be flushed for their poor attempt to troll the masters of troll

          • Gluteus_Maximus_Rage

            I just hit up Strapping Young Lad! with the link. We’ll see what happens.

        • but do we really want some of those rascals in HERE?

    • LAMENTATIONS OF THE WOMEN

      what is metalsucks?

  • KJM

    Had a couple of Nathan’s franks and some Minestrone soup.

  • Quarter Ounce Harrell

    Currently on break as my work slowly makes me become a two pack a day smoker.

  • Why did you guys leave me? 🙁

    • Deputy Dipshit

      Impostor!

    • webb71

      If you have to ask that question, you didn’t deserve all our clicks and somewhat kinda sorta positive comments in the first place.

    • LAMENTATIONS OF THE WOMEN

      Infinite flushes to this poor impersonation.

    • Paris Hilton

      The fact that you called yourself LeAxl (if, in fact, you are Axl), should provide a pretty good reason.

    • Further Down the Metal Hole

      Show some gratitude guys, we all know a site’s really made it when trolls start appearing!

  • “buffalo chicken snackers” from the hospital cafeteria! frank’s red hot sauce added.

  • Keegan Lavern Still

    No lunch for me. Trying to lose weight by controlling portion sizes and only eating when I can hear my stomach shouting obscenities at me. At the very least, it makes eating more rewarding.

    • W.

      Weight loss is totes metal. You can do it, brohan!

    • we’ll have to consult Paris on this one, but i think the key to weight loss is to eat 6.66 small meals each day.

      • Paris Hilton

        You actually have to eat small meals throughout the day (never let yourself go hungry!). When you allow yourself to go hungry, the body recognizes that the glycogen levels are low. The body goes into “saving mode” and your insulin levels go through the fucking roof. Therefore, anything you do eat will be immediately stored as adipose rather than being synthesized as glucose for the muscle. The body just kind of assumes you have no access to food, so you need to store. Goddamn physiological processes!

    • Cock of Steele

      I was actually told to eat more in order to lose weight, granted it was due to working out twice a day, but something like 3 meals large with carbohydrates and protein.

      • Paris Hilton

        Carbohydrates are especially important. Most of your fats you should be able to get through protein sources. We’re all gonna make it, brah!

    • Steve Smithwick

      Nope, bad for your metabolism. The best food eating to cut out is actually late-night snacking; anything you’re eating within an hour or two of going to bed is wasteful and gets stored as fat.

      If portion sizes are a problem for you (and they have been for me at times in the past!), it’s not terrible to miss a meal or two to help shrink your stomach, in order to get it used to smaller amounts of intake. But it’s legitimately better to eat regularly and exercise more than it is to eradicate food intake altogether while not changing your activity levels.

      • Paris Hilton

        True if you are sedentary, but if you are super active you can get away with (and to some degree need) late night snacking (as long as it’s not shit-tier food like microwave popcorn or some shit).

        • KJM

          I lost 40 lbs over the course of a Spring/Summer just from brisk walking, no changes in diet or eating habits at all, but once I stopped it started coming back. I still do it but not as much, just enough so I don’t undo what I’ve already accomplished.

          • Paris Hilton

            This is a late reply. But that, my friend is from mitochondria growing in your oxidative muscle fibre (the kind for walking, light jogging etc.). A cool part about that is mitochondria directly oxidizes triglycerides in adipose tissue! That’s why the weight came off with no diet changes. Your body was using more energy via there being more “portals” to oxidize it! (I am a nerd deep down)

      • Keegan Lavern Still

        Believe me, I’m well aware of all of that. The impetus behind my current eating habit is to rebuild my relationship (if you can call it that) with food. It’s more psychological conditioning than anything else, especially with cooking/preparing my food and taking the time to actually enjoy and savor what I cook (mindfulness ftw).
        As for exercise, the best I’m getting right now is the 10 minute walk to/from work/school. I’ve been stupid busy with summer courses and getting more experience in being an adult with undoing the damage my twat housemate left when he moved out (making nice with the utility company, getting internet set back up, literally cleaning up said housemate’s messes, etc.), so when I get home from work/studying/managing advertisements, I just crash. I’ve already rented out a locker at my campus gym, so as soon as classes end, I’m hitting that motherfucker so goddamn hard.

        • A piece of advice you’re free to completely discard:
          When you start working out, it helps to go in with a plan. After a year or so of just kinda dicking around in the gym, I found the Starting Strength program and got a lot of great results out of it. There are a number of programs out there like it. You can check out Stronglifts 5×5 or Wendler’s 5-3-1.

    • Paris Hilton

      Whatever you do, DO NOT!!!!!! SKIP FUCKING BREAKFAST!!! At any rate, weight loss can be tough. Eat right, train hard, and DO NOT be discouraged if you don’t see results. You’ll always be closer than you were yesterday, keep it up!

  • Xan

    My lunch today consisted of pita chips and some piping hot tea. I don’t eat lunch typically.

  • Jeff Loomis Rules

    Been trying to diet but just gave in and got some Wendy’s… Damn it.

  • Fromwisdomtohate29

    Having a tuna sandwich. Hoping it stops fucking raining for a least two days.

  • ParallaxativeHyperStool

    I’ve eaten so many 3-4$ gigantic slices since I’ve moved to NY I’m pretty much made of pizza. I’m also poor so a lot of homemade rice and beans and pasta and shit. There are a couple of places where I’ve found awe inspiring pies though. Had a slice of shroom yesterday that brought a single manly tear to my eye.

  • JWG

    I have reheated leftovers in a bowl. It’s round (though they’re not). Does that count?

    It’s a Calabrian Stuffed Eggplant I made a few nights ago for dinner, from a recipe adapted by JC of Danko Jones from a dish his grandmother made him as a child.

    It’s from this cookbook, I’ve shared before on That Other Blog Which Shall Not Be Named (at least by me): http://www.amazon.ca/Mosh-Potatoes-Recipes-Anecdotes-Heavyweights/dp/1439181322

  • Cock of Steele

    Bought some fresh homemade chorizo the other day to put in my omelette. And now I perform my dailey toilet rites.

  • Steve Smithwick

    I had a roast beef sub from Falmouth House of Pizza, which is about a mile from where I work. I’m a client of theirs, and they’re a client of my place of employment- reciprocal cash flow!

    The old lady got a meatball sub- they make some pretty dank meatball subs as well.

  • Veldar

    Its breakfast in Australia right now so I’m having a ham roll.

    • Max

      For dinner tonight I will have a meat pie (either beef or chicken and mushroom if I can find one) with a side of chips and – if I can get away with it at work – a beer. It doesn’t get more Australian than that.

  • Cockypock Aioli

    I had some tomato soup, purposefully spilled it all over myself, and then started headbanging. At first it was bloody metal, but now i’m just sticky. And not from the soup..

  • Gluteus_Maximus_Rage

    I know I’m running late, but it’s now lunch time at work on Thursday and I’m jamming…
