I decided to eat lunch in the IBM cafeteria today instead of wasting my 8 Euros again (it was raining, which did help me choose to stay inside). Even though I don’t keep Kosher, I don’t eat pork or shellfish, and I wasn’t sure that any of the entrees available today were suitable (they had salmon, but it appeared to be garnished with asparagus and ham, and there was a quiche, but who knows what was inside). So I avoided the entrees.
Instead, I filled my plate with salad (that was the “California” part of my lunch) — then I met the “French” requirement by adding two kinds of cheese, four kinds of bread, and a nice dessert. I think I’ll do the same thing tomorrow — I could get used to this kind of lunch.
