hardboiled!!

anonymous asked:

[demon-of-empathy] Sam sneaks in to the room and leaves a hardboiled egg on Solas' table. The egg has a simple drawing on it to look like his face. While they stay hidden, Sam can't help but giggle as they stand there and wait for him to notice it.

@demon-of-empathy He comes across the egg, almost dropping it to the ground as he shuffles around papers. When he sees his face drawn on the shell, he simply sighs. And hearing some faint giggling, he turns, searching for the source of the laughter. 

“..Sera?”

Today the Department of Impossible Cuteness invites you to play another round of “Eat it or keep it as a pet?” RocketNews24 assembled an overwhelmingly kawaii collection of hard-boiled eggs that’ve been altered and decorated to turn them into all sorts of cute bento creatures, from chickens, bunnies, cows and pandas to Pikachu and a wee baby seal.

Could you conquer the debilitating cuteness of these enhanced eggs in order to enjoy them as lunch?

Lilacs

The most important symbol in Night Watch is the lilac blossom. It starts off the story and recurs throughout it.

In Victorian Flower Language lilac is listed under both “young/first love” and “youthful innocence”. What could be more appropriate than “youthful innocence” for this book?

The Glorious 25th of May destroys the youthful innocence of Young Sam and his fellows. The stars are gone from his eyes by the end of this book. All of this happens under the saddened eyes of the older Sam Vimes. He looks at his younger self across 30 years with experience and maybe a bit wistfully about how innocent he was in his youth.

At first I thought that “young love” does not fit Night Watch, but wait. Wait. You will not convince me that the Watch is not Vimes’s first love. He loves that job and Ankh-Morpork in a way that he never loved a person until he met Lady Sybil.

Night Watch is about Vimes’s past and how he grows up and how the 25th of May changes the course of his life. He is young and innocent and loves his mother and life and would probably have ended up another Colon or Snouty, but then the revolution comes and we see the Vimes heart and grit emerge. He was never the same man after Cable Street. He fought twice under the lilac. He lost friends under the lilac. His son was born under the lilac.

His memories are locked up in the lilac, but so is the theme of the book. So sneaky, Pterry.

All the little angels rise up high.

“Big Hero 6” Baymax Wasabi Ginger Deviled Eggs

Ingredients:
5 Hardboiled Eggs, peeled
2 Tbsp. Mayonnaise
1 tsp. Wasabi Paste
1 tsp. Fresh Grated Ginger
Pinch of Salt
Sheet of Nori (seaweed)

Directions:
Cut the eggs in half & place the yolks in a plastic sandwich bag. Add in the other ingredients & seal the bag, pushing out as much air as you can. Smoosh the contents of the bag well until completely combined & no chunks remain, & then snip off a corner of the bag. Sit the whites up like little bowls & pipe the contents of the bag into them. Pair up the filled whites & gently press them together. Cut Baymax features from the nori & place them on the tops of the pressed-together eggs. Great for a party or bento!
