Treasures 2006_25

Our treasure lies in the beehive of our knowledge.
We are perpetually on the way thither,
being by nature winged insects and honey gatherers of the mind.

-- Friedrich Nietzsche

Treasures are positive things that strike my fancy, that make me feel happy or thankful or interested. Treasures are memories encapsulated in just a few words. These are my Treasures for the past week.

  • SATURDAY. Cats in my office. No job to go to. Nothing required of me.

  • Catching up — on my email, the comics, my Journal, my weblog, my sleep!

  • Napping with Squirrel.

  • A bit of sunlight still at 9pm. I love summer.

  • A co-worker's screen saver - it looks like water drippng and spreading in ripples across the screen.

  • A fellow rider on the train had a large chocolate chip cookie as the desktop pattern on his PC. Yum.

  • Someone flying a kite in the park. It's very shiny and reflecting the setting sun

  • Sign on an auto body shop in Mountain View: Two Ladies and a Few Good Men.

  • Two "Spare The Air" days with free transit fares. I saved the cost of 3 lunches.

  • Tasty sandwiches for several lunches. This Job has a good cafeteria.

  • An unfortunate bug resolved in my favorite application. Now I can upgrade to the latest version.
