So you were set to move to Tokyo, and then you just changed your mind on a whim b/c you were in NYC, but if your girlfriend is only feigning interest in moving to NYC, then it's over between you two? WTF?

Plowed through about 50 Italian sausages, 64 burgers, the veggies, some onions and peppers for the sausages, plus a small handful of chicken breasts and veggie burgers on special request, all on a rented charcoal grill. Had to get a headstart on everything and half-cook things for last-minute finishing - went thru 2.5 huge bags of charcoal, 3 coal changes, but started sending stuff into the cafeteria at about 11:58 and took the last cheeseburger off at 12:20. Timed everything perfectly and everything turned out OK. Won't know til tomorrow of course that nobody got salmonella or anything but the food was good and well-appreciated. It was fun and the timing, which was stressing me out the most (shop emps have a 30-minute lunch window), worked out perfectly.
