I had lunch at the Meal-O-Mat today. Meal-O-Mat is located on the 2nd floor of the Arts & Architecture building, in the northeast corner, on North Campus.

Meal-O-Mat is an amazing machine, although not without some glitches. For example, I ordered veal picatta with capers (I was told I could order anything). Instead, it gave me two "not dogs." All this, for free (although I managed to slip a dollar in the output tray)!

I would definitely like a Meal-O-Mat here in the office.

For a second I thought I heard a familiar voice coming from Meal-O-Mat, but I must have imagined it. Meal-O-Mat is a magnificent feat of engineering, but it is, alas, only a machine. It only says what it is pre-programmed to say, things like, "Thank you. You're Welcome. Hot dog. Hot dog!"

I spilled a good tablespoon of mustard-catsup mixture on my shirt. A little memory of Meal-O-Mat.
