Yeah, isn't Norway on its way to being an immigration hotspot anyway?

I always hear Scandinavian countries being used as a good example relating to society and systems that work, etc, particularly their education system.

We got a lot of immigration, sadly it's a bit mishandled by the right wing as they view it as "brown Muslims coming to take our country and make everyone wear a burka" or "taking away our precious Christian heritage" which have been circling a bit as the most anti immigration and rightwinged party is trying really hard to pander to the Christian population.

We have a very strong immigration from Poland which is great, they usually come to Norway for work and provide for their family back home.

I'm glad that all forms of sexual misconduct are being taken more seriously.

So glad my car key is just a regular old key and copies are easy to be made.

Apparently a co-worker had a hell of a time yesterday after her key got dropped into a toilet at work. And being like most public toilets these have the automatic flush.... and it flushed.

Maybe a little karma, given her lack of work ethic, but that sucks that those keys supposedly cost about $500 for a new one.

So, yeah, glad a replacement for mine is super cheap, and already have more than one spare, including a hidden one I can get home with if I were to ever lose my key.

When there's something you plan to look into and then a leaflet about the very thing is pushed through your door, containing a timetable which includes a local location and of course a phone number. That's that sorted.

Edit: Today has been one of those days where you just feel 'cosy' and chilled out all today, I don't have those very often

Cooked this with my brother this evening. Granted, he ended up taking over a lot of the cooking and I helped get things and cleanup around him. Some of that was interrupted by a weird dizzy spell.

He made the sauce for that from scratch and had to improvise a lot of stuff. He made a clam sauce in the absence of oyster sauce, and in the absence of ketchup...made an AMAZING ketchup out of tomato paste, vinegar and sugar. Which kicked me out of my dizzy spell with its flavor.

The resulting fake Tonkatsu sauce is pretty great.

As for the actual korokke...it's not done yet.

Had a great weekend. Our weekly D&D game was a blast- they spent half the time goofing off in the tavern, waiting for what they paranoidly assumed was a "drow invasion" that was really just four drow (dark elves) bounty hunters who had strolled in asking questions while looking for the bard the party had been trying to recruit to help deal with a tribe of goblins and their dragon master who have been causing trouble for the local farmers and villagers. Then the group's trigger-happy rogue unwittingly foiled the ambush from the human mercenaries the drow had hired as "battle fodder", while the rest of the party was dealing with the bounty hunters. Funny thing was, they all thought he had attacked a band of local guardsmen by mistake, and were worried he might get them thrown out of town. I was having a hard time not laughing at them not realizing the human mercs were working for the drow! Little do they know that the bard's psychotic halff-sister they were so worried might show up is nowhere around, but they are still spazzing out thinking she will show up.

Sunday was just a lazy day, and I actually got some writing done. All around a good weekend. And today was kind of a slow day at work, so I got off on time for once, and we weren't rushing around to keep up. The frappe I had didn't hurt, either.
