A good Spaghetti is what I need on weekdays to feel satiated and happy. Pasta cooked perfectly, tossed in pesto or marinara with these easy Chickpea Walnut “Meatballs” / Balls.
The meal comes together quickly with some planning. Make the pesto ahead of time. Cook some onion and garlic, toss it in the processor with the ball ingredients, shape or scoop and bake. While they bake, cook the pasta. Toss, garnish, add the toasty warm balls and done. Premade pesto or tomato based sauce makes it a faster meal. Make a double batch of these chickpea balls to whip up a meatball sub sandwich, add to wraps or serve with dips. Whats your favorite way to serve these super delicious chickpea balls?

battlehamster has gone to a Larp this weekend, leaving Kheldar in charge of the house. It's probably good timing because I had to work late today and I'll have to go back into work on Sunday. As long as the building security guys remember to call me that is. If they don't then I'll have go in at Far Too Early O'Clock on Monday instead. There's some power work being done on the building so everything had to be switched off and unplugged before I left the office this evening - coffee machines, classroom kit, the entire server rack, eeeeverything.
I'm going to spend the rest of the weekend fretting until they call me and tell that the sparkies have finished and I can go and power everything back up again. We have a course starting on Monday that can't run without internet access so I'm really hoping that all the ISP and Corp team kit boots back up okay. On the plus side most of what's in the rack is less than a year old so shouldn't have died from shock just because it's been shut down.
In recent weeks, President Trump has delivered a number of fiery speeches and incendiary tweets about what will happen to North Korea if Kim Jong-un launches nuclear missiles over Japan and toward Guam and the United States.
Naturally, the feisty dictator replied with some choice words of his own:
"North Korean leader responds to Trump: ‚ÄėI will surely and definitely tame the mentally deranged U.S. dotard with fire'", b
That's not how I pronounce it.¬† For me, it is \dŇć‚Ä≤t…ôrd\.
"Dotard" is related to the word for the mental condition referred to as "dotage" ("feebleness of mind associated with aging").
James Griffiths has an article,"What is a 'Dotard'?" on CNN (9/22/17) in which he rightfully points out:
Kim, of course, did not say the word — he was speaking in Korean. "Dotard" was the official English translation provided by state news agency KCNA for the Korean "ŽäôŽč§Ž¶¨ŽĮłžĻėÍīĎžĚī" ("neulg-dali-michigwang-i"), which literally translates as "old lunatic."
On the other hand, in "'Dotard' rockets from obscurity to light up Trump-Kim exchange, spark partisan war of words", Los Angeles Times (9/22/17), Mark Z. Barabak writes:
The Korean equivalent of dotard is ‚Äúneukdari,‚ÄĚ which is a derogatory term for an old person.
One possible explanation for Kim‚Äôs use of the antiquated insult came from Joan H. Lee*, who covered North Korea for the Associated Press. She said on Twitter that she had visited the offices of the government‚Äôs propaganda arm, the North Korean state news service, and ‚Äúfound the agency using very old Korean-English dictionaries for their translations.‚ÄĚ
*[VHM:¬† I think that Barabak is referring to Jean H. Lee.]
There's been some confusion about just which Korean expression Kim applied to Trump.¬† The full epithet he employed was "neulg-dali-michigwang-i ŽäôŽč§Ž¶¨ ŽĮłžĻėÍīĎžĚī" (neulg-dali –> derogatory term for old/withered man/dotard; michigwang-i –> lunatic").¬† Google Translate renders that as "an old man lunatic".¬† Colloquially, one could translate the entire expression as "crazy old fool".
For a detailed discussion of the Korean expression, see this tweetstorm from Noon in Korea.
Prediction:¬† President Trump, whether directly or indirectly, will be the source of more new ("bigly", "covfefe") and resuscitated ("dotard") words than anyone since Shakespeare, though they are unlikely to last as long.

Which, given the weather - today was persistent drizzle rather than yesterday's chucking it relentlessly down - was a good idea. Salt mine, to be precise.
However, has been a long day - only just in from a Mahler concert - so any more detailed reports on touristic activities may follow at some later season.
There was a glorious tunic dress I got at the thrift store with hand embroidered petroglyph-style fabric, which I passed on to my mother since it fits her without alterations. Pinterest and now the craft stores are full of ideas & paint markers for drawing on rocks. There was the paleoart take on what we can learn about the woolly rhinoceros from looking at art by its contemporaries. And then this glorious article came across twitter the other day: What the Caves are trying to tell us, and I don't remember hearing about the liner scratch marks before either, but they remind me of the reindeer birthing goddesses & the various stone-age petroglyphs that still carry the old gods through into modern central European cross stitch patterns.
Also, I want more fiction weird edge-of-the-imagination speculative stone age cultures and a world where every rock & maybe tree used to be covered with herds of ice age large mammals and the ones in the deep caves are just the only ones we have left.
I am restraining myself from finishing up getting rid of the wallpaper on the stairs (a noble goal, but not today's priority) so I can paint cave art all over those walls. I *might* have to use that as a theme for another pair of painted jeans, tho. Except that then I'd need to make a string skirt to wear with them... (We'll see how long this lasts; so far I'm just at the stage of google image searches & requesting library books.)
Things went not so well, and then they went even worse, leaving Wilford confused and trying to hide his bruised face behind an old pair of glasses with chunky plastic frames.
People around here don't react the way he expects them to. Wilford did everything he knows how to do to get someone to calm down - he threw money at the situation and let himself get hit in the face - but he still has the feeling he may have somehow missed an important detail. Which is weird, because those things usually work.
Before going to the Lib Dem party conference, Drswirly and I went to stay in Christchurch, because of its proximity to the New Forest Wildlife Centre, which has a lot of otters. Did I mention the otters?
I found Christchurch a bit stultifying, and the kind of place I don't at all feel at home in, because it's quite clear that I'm not really their type of person. Christchurch was the kind of place that had a UKIP office prominently on one of the main streets. (It's now shut, which is definitely an improvement, but Christchurch was definitely a UKIP heartland.) It was next to a curry house, which I found mildly pleasing, though I'm not so sure the curry house owners would have agreed. We went to otters first, and then later wandered round the town. (I haven't posted pictures of the town; it's not that interesting. There's a mildly interesting bit of castle, and a mildly interesting Norman church (in places), but it's not really a particularly notable example of the genre. I may upload some bits to wikimedia commons, if I can be arsed to manage their categorisation system.)
I'm going to put a cut in, because there are a lot of otters.

For those people who didn't wade through the pictures of mustelidae, you should at least look at:
a gif of a contact-juggling otter!
and a short video of a giant otter squacking on command.
For Marvel and DC, generally we end up with nominations for the top-level All Media Type tags (which are Marvel and DCU respectively), mid-level metafandoms (eg MCU, DCU (Comics)), and specific fandoms (eg Hawkeye (Comics), The Flash (TV)).
For things like video game series (Final Fantasy, Fire Emblem) and TV shows with rolling continuity (Doctor Who and Torchwood, Buffy and Angel) it‚Äôs preferable to nominate on a metafandom. If you‚Äôre planning on nominating something like this, feel free to discuss in comments, otherwise we‚Äôll ask for clarification as they come up in nominations. Fandoms with mostly rolling continuity but some bumps (Star Trek as a whole vs AOS, X-Men movies, etc) usually get grouped into multiple metafandoms in the same way as Marvel or DCU, but there‚Äôs less need to get as detailed (ie Star Trek and AOS as the only two categories is fine, no need to specify TNG vs DS9).
Nominating fandoms in this way also helps cut down on the need for crossovers. If you‚Äôre nominating a relationship that is a crossover, it gets nominated to the fandom Crossover. But if you‚Äôre nominating within a metafandom, that‚Äôs not an issue (see below for more details).
Generally speaking, if one media format AND the All Media Types format of a fandom are nominated, we‚Äôll select the AMT type, though we will try and ask for clarification if it happens (since directors can make movies very different from the books).
Please make sure it has three characters, and uses the / symbol instead of the & symbol between all characters.
Please always nominate to the highest applicable metafandom. If you do not disambiguate while nominating a relationship, it‚Äôll be placed in the highest applicable metafandom. If you have multiple disambiguations in one relationship, it will be placed in the highest applicable metafandom.
James "Bucky" Barnes/Steve Rogers/Sam Wilson: gets assigned to Marvel, since it could mean comics or MCU.
James "Bucky" Barnes/Steve Rogers/Sam Wilson (MCU): I assume this means one disambiguation for the relationship as a whole, and put it in MCU.
James "Bucky" Barnes(Ultimates)/Steve Rogers (MCU)/Sam Wilson (MCU): there is a comics disambig and a movies disambig so it gets assigned to Marvel, which covers both.
They've been at it for a couple of hours, and have made vastly more progress than I was able to make in quite a few hours of manual digging. Part of this is that they've got a small electric jackhammer, but it's clear that a fair bit of this is simply that they're better at it than I was.
Which just goes to show that "unskilled labor" involves skills too.
