So I have this job where I work on my own. It’s kind of hard to explain so I’m just going to glaze over that but anyway, every day I plug away on my filthy excuse of a laptop keyboard, poking away at the keys to form words which eventually become some important document that I have to write for work.

But occasionally, I poke and prod at the keyboard to create a tweet, and this thing, this tweet, keeps me in touch with the “real world” (such a very arguable point) and keeps me from going certified insane.

Around midday every day, I twaddle downstairs to pick up some lunch from somewhere. I come back to my desk, unwrap my food in all its gloriousness (or ungloriousness as it often is the case) and before I chomp my large Bugs Bunny teeth (and don’t pretend like you haven’t seen them in photos) into my lunch, I take a photo with my blackberry and share it with the rest of twittersphere.

Welcome to my #lunchtweet stream and what I’ve had for lunch over the last couple of months.

Pret tomato soup

Thai 33 tom yum gai with rice

Ribon Japanese prawn tempura rolls

a box of Pocky – sometimes I’m very busy!

Pret fruit bowl – for the fat days

And there you have it! My favourite lunch of all is at the top of this post – Wasabi’s chicken katsu salad.

18 Thoughts on “all this lunchtweeting is making me hungry!

  1. aw man your lunches look awesome!

  2. Catty those pictures are astonishing considering you took them with a Blackberry! I’m impressed!

    (I’m still getting the new iPhone 4 though πŸ™‚ )

  3. chocolatesuze: some are awesome *heart chicken katsu salad* but most are from Pret which is like a real lamo sandwich chain here .. boring!

    Chris: I know right? It’s amazing what some good natural light can do! And yeah yeah iPhone 4 LOL… don’t worry, I totally have iPhone envy…

  4. I had the chicken katsu the other week (when I was going to a wedding in London). Its was very tasty, the salad in particular. Chicken was a bit dry, but I agree that it’s certainly a feel-good lunch!

  5. Thanks Catty, now I know what I am having for lunch. Chicken katsu salad!

    great one catty!

  8. Alice: Oh no shame about the chicken! Yeah the salad and *that* dressing is just amazing. *nom*

    Bruce: Do it do it DO IT πŸ˜€

    Meeta: Nothing wrong with a box of pocky for lunch πŸ˜‰ I had a tim tam yesterday!!

  11. You, lady, are a Pret ADDICT!

  12. Mr Noodles: Hey, ain’t nuthing wrong with a bit of Maccas love once in a while πŸ˜‰

    Su-Lin: I know. Me too. The thought of the dressing makes my heart palpitations go insane!

    Lizzie: Unfortunately I work directly on top of a Pret and convenience seems to win out most of the time! (ps. I ate a lot more Pret, I had to leave out some Pret photos! *shame*)

    oh my god you have really great lunches! I have NO options near where I work. Lucky you!

  14. I either eat leftovers from home or I just starve myself till dinnertime again.

  15. Jenny: haha no not really, did you notice how many of my lunches were from Pret?? BORING! πŸ™‚

    Wild Boar: Well that *could* work. Except I break out into a monster if I don’t eat. H-angry doesn’t bode well with me πŸ˜‰

  16. Ahh and my next question is how do you stay so svelte eating all of that delicious food Catty? πŸ˜€

  17. All your lunchtweeting makes me hungry too. Luckily (or not) i must work in the middle of the Smoke’s biggest concentration of good eating holes. Me and my waistline are expansively happy.

    Also – what Chris said – amazing images from a crackberry.

  18. Lorraine: I assure you, svelte is not me but thank you for helping me boost my confidence hehe πŸ™‚

    The Grubworm: The funny thing is you don’t work so far from me and so I deduce that I am plain and simply.. LAZY.
