美洲大陸感恩節的由來某個層面不太光采, 弱肉強食種族滅絕歷史ㄧ再上演, 人類是學不乖的生物… 因為感恩節這禮拜公司運作較和緩, 我才有空透氣更新網誌. 回歸職場樂多於苦, 光想著每天有解不完的設計思考我就興緻勃勃, 長日將盡時雖疲累卻充實飽滿. 早晚的通勤較惱人, 因為處於半機械化的控車狀態, 雜思易浮上心頭, 成了非自願的三省吾身… 結論是有些圈圈我走不出, 可能需要諮商心理學家, 在這之前, 做做小事讓自己ㄧ日ㄧ開心:
等待銀行開門的清晨, 繞道去享用早餐, 濃郁的摩卡熱巧克力, 香酥的義式炸點, 菠菜乳酪煎蛋三明治… 南歐民族樂天大抵和吃離不了關係!!! 我的新寵是iphone 5, 拿它隨時隨地複習BBC Jane Austen迷你劇 :)
I have turned my daily long commute into karaoke sing along haven, BBC mini series Jane Austen marathon, and self therapy all in one. Continuing to explore educational activities that I can perform in the car without jeopardize my driving safety… perhaps it's time to pick up a new language?Sadly another sign of 'welcome back' to USA is the long line at any federal agencies, bank dealings, heavy medical bills(even after insurance coverage :&). Therefore the morning when I waited for the bank to open, I decided to treat myself to a BIG breakfast of rich moka chocolate, sumptuous zeppoles, and panino on toasty ciabatta. Life can still be good only if one tries hard enough.
我的工作天從駛進港灣旁的大道開始, 迎面而來的藍天和Bay Bridge讓人精神大振.
My work day usually starts with the spectacular sight of the Bay Bridge.
工作室位於ㄧ列古典紅磚房的中心點, 綠樹和小咖啡館環繞, 初冬的街道滿地楓紅.
Followed by a morning stroll into one of the brownstone buildings.
感恩節前夕和同事互道佳節快樂後步行來到舊金山地標Ferry Building採買, 忍不住試飲印度香料牛奶和伯爵茶口味的奶酪.
The Thanksgiving week was a bit slower so I had the momentary leisure visiting the Ferry Building after wishing my team happy holidays.
Home farming is trending. People are making their own cheese with DIY kit. Before getting that chicken coop from Williams-Sonoma, let's start with a less ambitious project, the mushrooms in the glass cloche?
A box of Rose Geranium macarons is a MUST from Miette.
夜色將臨, 再度行經紅磚房, 生命最大的資產是知道自己是誰? 想成為怎麼樣的人? 要到哪裏去? 目前我不知道所有的答案, 總有ㄧ天謎底會揭曉吧?
Time to pick up my car and start my vocal session. Seriously I don't understand why I am singing teen love ballads(blame it all on the long commute!) and it's addictive. Listen to this by Christina Perri…
And who do you think you are
Running 'round leaving scars
Collecting your jar of hearts
And tearing love apart
You're gonna catch a cold
From the ice inside your soul
So don't come back for me
Don't come back at all
So sappy… yet soooooo good. I guess I won't surprise myself if I become a Twilight fan soon :P
My latest APP favorite, C4LA that turns any digital image into a line drawing. Of course the APP is like a mini Photoshop and cannot beat the varying line weights of an actual line drawing but On-The-Go, this does just fine.
