lunch


Today Olive's is offering their special sandwich. The special sandwich consists of: California Avocado, Vermont Sharp Cheddar, Crunchy Sprouts, Red Onion, Tomato, and Chilpotle Mayo on 7 Grain . My co-worker Helena LOVES Olive's Special Sandwich. Olive's is within walking distance of Women, at 120 Prince Street (Wooster st x Green st), ph: (212)941-0111.

The special sandwich got me thinking of the lunch time poll, conducted by Winona Ryder in the 1989 movie Heathers. The movie also starred model Lisanne Falk. Lisanne was a teen model at the same time as Brooke Shields and Phoebe Cates. In the 1980's there was a strong market for teen models -Lisanne's career was the subject of a book, Lisanne, a Young Model.

The lunch time poll consists of one question: You win five million dollars from Publishers
Sweepstakes, but on the same day what's- his-face gives you the check, aliens land on earth and say they're going to blow up the world in two days. What would you do?

Well, what would you do? With the weak USD, $5million doesn't go as far as it did in 1989. You could buy a whole lot of vintage Swatch's on Ebay, or a Francesco Savullo era Cosmopolitan magazine...or a cardigan from the Limited. If I got that money, I'd give it
all to the homeless. Every cent.
