@Tinkeringbell I get to help my dad move today
 
@Magisch Which is good or bad? I can't figure it out...
 
It's good because it provides me a plausible excuse not to attend the company christmas party, which I usually need a day or two and a handful of otc pain pills to recover from
 
Ahhh... Have fun then :)
I'm skipping this year's company party too... on the pretense that if I have to take a train, I can't be in two places at once and I have another one to be already ;)
They're usually not bad, but not great either.
 
how's things in general at your job?
 
10:07 AM
Same old?
Coding is nice, coworkers are nice too but only because teaching me is the pet promotional project... and managers are still happy I'm female.
This week was a bit chaotic, as I have to coordinate a lot with another team that's upgrading the application I'm still building new functionality for. But we can't stop that for over a year so coordinating it is.
 
@Tinkeringbell nope. I'm in for the 50% reduction of Sinterklaas stuff at the AH today.
 
@Tinkeringbell tbh I would feel quite insulted if someone did that to me
 
@rene Nice! Get the discounted chocolate coins and marzipan frogs! :D I had a chocolate letter and 50 euro's in my shoe this morning, we watched Paul en Sint on TV yesterday with cake and kruidnoten...
@Magisch Yeah, my feelings aren't exactly happy with all that either.
Keeps nagging.
 
I indulged yesterday and got some nutella roasted almonds from the christmas market
they're too delicious to eat often
 
10:24 AM
Oooh, you said the n-word. Now I'm hungry too! :P
breadsticks are also great with nutella ;)
 
@Tinkeringbell wait, you have been a nice girl last year? My report must have been dismissed by Sint then .... ;)
 
@rene Oh, this was less then what I got last year, so must be received :P
 
@Tinkeringbell they have a whole stand with roasted almonds with different coatings. I was at the council office yesterday to request a new passport (mine is expiring) and the smell was just intoxicating
 
@Magisch I can imagine that, roasted nuts in general have a very pleasant smell already!
 
they also tasted awesome, but had a metric ton of calories, so I don't think i'll get more
 
10:35 AM
Oh come on. From what you've said, you can handle a few calories extra ;)
 
yeah but these push 600kcal on 100g
 
You can handle another batch before christmas ;)
 
I might get a selection of the different flavors before the market closes after christmas and eat them through january
 
Sounds fun too!
 
I already got some homemade charity cookies to give away as presents. They have a charity drive here where people bake cookies and then volunteers package and sell them with all the proceeds going to the local charity. They're pricy (6.50€ for 200g assorted cookies) though.
also planning on getting some local honey and maybe beeswax candles
 
10:41 AM
For now, I think all I need to buy this month is a new winter coat and some fancy christmas clothes to appease parents at the christmas dinner... Luckily all that can be done through the internet :D
 
Rob
Eat it as is!
 
what is that
 
Rob
Marzipan
 
dear god please no
 
It's nice!
 
JAD
10:52 AM
@Tinkeringbell my company's xmas party is fun, they host a small market where you can use credits to haggle together your kerstpakket. There usually is a bookstand, wines, cheese, chocolate, random toys. I usually get a cookbook. Oh, and there's loads of alcohol.
 
@JAD Sounds fun, at least that way you get something you can actually 'use' or 'like'.
 
JAD
yep, and it supports local stores, which is also nice
 
Afternoon. Just dropping by for a quick question.
It is known if the composition of the two work groups/council/clubs/[insert term here] mentioned in the Loop post will be public or kept secret?
I am not sure if this was mentioned anywhere
 
I don't think it was, so you could either ask a new question, or find a way to poke a CM about it, or I can ask if I don't forget? :)
 
will do, thanks
 
11:18 AM
Looks good :)
 
11:44 AM
@Hitodama Wasn't mentioned, but I'm guessing the composition (who is on it) of the working groups will be strictly secret and specific feedback of them too
 
12:14 PM
@Tinkeringbell almost my entire team just doesn't go
we are grumpy :D
 
@Rob NOM NOM NOM
Love Marizpan
 
I would've gone to the christmas Friday afternoon drinks at my previous office (great people there)... but that same Friday mom and me are going to be going to a concert, then we have a hotel room and the next day we'll visit a christmas market :|

I guess a grumpy team would not suit me!
 
right, I should go out get some lunch before it's too late and everywhere is ran out :<
 
@djsmiley2k-CoW Oh ugh, that a problem there too?! Go, and enjoy!
 
12:16 PM
Sometimes the part of the office I'm in, we'll go somewhere local for lunch, which is nice
we're all v.techie, most people are so...... unable to converse with 'real people' it's kinda hard ;D
 
Did you try just quietly sipping a drink or two first? :P
 
Rob
@djsmiley2k-CoW The world's record is 9,255 pounds, made with pistachio instead of almond.
 
Does that still count as marzipan?
 
I'm both drooling and also I have a premature stomach ache looking at that.
 
That is not a food item that is an abomination onto the lord
 
12:26 PM
@Tinkeringbell Size is irrelevant when defining marzipan, so why not?
As for pistachio instead of almond, sure.
There's even marzipan combining them.

@Magisch seems we have a common enemy, then.
 
Rob
@Tinkeringbell The first "marzipan" was made from pistachios, it is a thing (according to Google): google.com/search?q=pistachio+marzipan and Guinness allows it - so yes. TIL
 
Back to the deepest pits of hell where you belong, Mozartkugeln
 
Rob
Better than Ambergris.
 
12:43 PM
@Rob and better than Nattō I guess, but still probably the unholy spawn of an evil Assyrian deity of the underworld
 
There goes my hunger.
 
Rob
Natto seems so much better than Criadillas, though it looks so much worse.
Now that's spawn!
 
@Hitodama eh. I'd rather have that then marzipan
Marzipan is an unholy abomination of sugar and almond, bringing about the worst qualities of each.
 
Rob
We'll juice them with Criadillas for you, and make a smoothie.
 
I would also rather eat the rotten fermented shark meat that is used like strong cheese then marzipan
 
Rob
12:54 PM
Hákarl ?
 
no idea what it's called, but it's supposedly revolting
 
@Rob Same here!
 
@Gimby No worries. Though this room will play havoc with your metabolism, make you hungry when you're not supposed to be, it's also quite good at doing exactly the opposite :P
 
@Magisch When people read a description of Hákarl they think "that must taste revolting". But if you actually taste some it tastes even worse.
 
12:58 PM
Then how did it survive?!
 
@Raedwald does it? I've been told it tastes like sharp cheddar
 
@Rob There goes my hunger. permanently.
 
Um. Why? Isn't that just nice, fresh bread?
 
It looks like some kind of animal product to me...
 
Rob
1:15 PM
🍡
 
@Magisch you mean Nattō?
 
@Tinkeringbell really? It looks like perfectly normal, albeit small, bread to me.
 
Rob
It's nutto
 
@terdon-stopharmingMonica Read the sentence above it then ;)
 
@Hitodama yea
 
1:19 PM
@Tinkeringbell Yes, I see what they are now. But they still look like bread to me :/
 
ok, time for the heavy artillery then
 
@terdon-stopharmingMonica It's the bumpy bits of what looks like some sort of membrane/skin that stand out to me. Especially in the large image :)
@Hitodama Is that one of those fruits that smell horrible?
 
@Tinkeringbell yep.
 
1:21 PM
 
@terdon-stopharmingMonica Nah, not at all!
 
durians are the tasty but incredibly smelly fruit, right?
 
@Magisch yep. And .... not tasty at all.
 
shrug, I like durians
 
Rob
@terdon-stopharmingMonica with veins
 
1:23 PM
I was gonna say... they're really smelly... I've never tasted one but usually smell and taste are aligned so that if you taste something that smells bad, it also smells bad...
 
@Magisch Self reminder: do not accept any fruit from the cactus
 
@Catija Are you sure you're awake yet? :P 'that smells bad, it also smells bad...' :P
 
I've been to Chengdu a few times. Let's just say that if a stand is selling durian, you can smell it from quite the distance away.
 
@Tinkeringbell Nope.
