She was a big, homely, overweight young woman, in her late 20s, maybe. No ring on her finger, so she was probably single. In fact, judging from her unfriendly demeanor, she probably had no boyfriend. And unless she started dieting and exercising regularly, she would probably remain unattached.Vivian asked her to make sure to remove the plastic tag from each article of clothing that Vivian was buying at Marshall's. The woman looked at Vivian but said nothing. Not "yes, ma'am," not "of course," not "no problem." She yanked each shirt off its hanger, removed each tag, and folded each shirt quickly but carelessly. Even though the building was air-conditioned, her forehead had beads of sweat. Occasionally she wiped the sweat off with the back of her hand.When she finished removing all the plastic tags and folding shirts into three piles, she rang up the total--0.78. Vivian presented her VISA card. The clerk completed the transaction and gave Vivian the receipt to sign. Then she started to put all 19 shirts into one big bag. Vivian said no, please put them into three bags because that would be easier to carry back out to the car. The young woman made a sour face, as if she had been asked to lick the floor clean.She almost threw each pile of shirts into three separate plastic bags. Vivian said thank you and picked up the bags. The young woman said nothing. Wordlessly she wiped the sweat off her forehead, pulled a shirt off the hanger for the next customer, and folded it. Article/201104/132599说起要得女性的青眼,柯林斯先生遇到象韦翰先生和军官们这样的劲敌,真变得无足轻重了。他在们眼睛里实在算不上什么,幸亏好心的腓力普太太有时候还听听他谈主,她又十分细心,尽量把咖啡和松饼敬给他吃。With such rivals for the notice of the fair as Mr. Wickham and the officers, Mr. Collins seemed to sink into insignificance; to the young ladies he certainly was nothing; but he had still at intervals a kind listener in Mrs. Phillips, and was by her watchfulness, most abundantly supplied with coffee and muffin. When the card-tables were placed, he had the opportunity of obliging her in turn, by sitting down to whist.;I know little of the game at present, ; said he, ;but I shall be glad to improve myself, for in my situation in life--; Mrs. Phillips was very glad for his compliance, but could not wait for his reason.Mr. Wickham did not play at whist, and with y delight was he received at the other table between Elizabeth and Lydia. At first there seemed danger of Lydia#39;s engrossing him entirely, for she was a most determined talker; but being likewise extremely fond of lottery tickets, she soon grew too much interested in the game, too eager in making bets and exclaiming after prizes to have attention for anyone in particular. Allowing for the common demands of the game, Mr. Wickham was therefore at leisure to talk to Elizabeth, and she was very willing to hear him, though what she chiefly wished to hear she could not hope to be told--the history of his acquaintance with Mr. Darcy.She dared not even mention that gentleman. Her curiosity, however, was unexpectedly relieved. Mr. Wickham began the subject himself. He inquired how far Netherfield was from Meryton; and, after receiving her answer, asked in a hesitating manner how long Mr. Darcy had been staying there.;About a month, ; said Elizabeth; and then, unwilling to let the subject drop, added, ;He is a man of very large property in Derbyshire, I understand. ;;Yes, ; replied Mr. Wickham; ;his estate there is a noble one. A clear ten thousand per annum. You could not have met with a person more capable of giving you certain information on that head than myself, for I have been connected with his family in a particular manner from my infancy. ;Elizabeth could not but look surprised.;You may well be surprised, Miss Bennet, at such an assertion, after seeing, as you probably might, the very cold manner of our meeting yesterday. Are you much acquainted with Mr. Darcy?;;As much as I ever wish to be, ; cried Elizabeth very warmly. ;I have spent four days in the same house with him, and I think him very disagreeable. ;;I have no right to give MY opinion, ; said Wickham, ;as to his being agreeable or otherwise. I am not qualified to form one. I have known him too long and too well to be a fair judge. It is impossible for ME to be impartial. But I believe your opinion of him would in general astonish--and perhaps you would not express it quite so strongly anywhere else. Here you are in your own family. ; Article/201107/145511

I wonder what will happen to the postal service. When I was young, I used the post office a lot. I went to the post office every week to buy stamps and send letters. I got excited every morning when the postman came. There was usually one letter for me – a real one. At Christmas and around my birthday I would get lots of cards. But today the post office is very different. I can’t remember the last time I went. I think the Internet is killing the post office. Most letters and mail sent today is via e-mail. I don’t even go to the post office to buy stamps. I get them from the local store. I’m not sure if the post office can survive, especially with competition from courier companies like Federal Express and DHL. Article/201107/143567

Over the next half hour, there were four more 'close- calls', but I think that I managed to remain hidden well enough behind trees and bushes and by keeping as far away from roads as possible. But in the distance I could still see it driving around the town in circles, as if looking for me. All I had to do was get home, lock my doors, get a baseball bat, ring my girlfriend and maybe 999 and warn them of creepy prankster motorists stalking my town...  But eventually of course I had to come back onto the roads, to get home. I sprinted across street after street and soon came to the police station. Police station was dark and empty as it was unmanned at this time of night (it is only a small rural town). There the car was waiting, and I was suddenly caught in its headlights like a small animal frozen by headlights with shock and fear. This tale now takes its paranormal twist.  Up until this point, I had assumed it was some youths playing a prank with me. But one of them got out of the car (the passenger side). The horrific 'melted face' was just not human. The figure was clad all in white and was of a burly build, and stocky... but unfeasibly tall at the same time. I mean, really tall, like seven foot. And he started to race towards me; arms outstretched making a kind of wailing, screaming noise.   Article/200903/64791

  “Money makes the world go round.” I wonder if this famous English expression is very true. If you have money, the world goes round very gently and you are happy. If you don’t have money, the world might not go round so smoothly. They also say that “money is the root of all evil”. I think this is so true. Money makes people kill and steal. Greed means there are things in the world like blackmail, corruption, slave labour and a lot more terrible things. Another common saying in English is “money can’t buy happiness”. I’m not so sure about this one. I know if I had loads of money I’d be pretty happy. I think if all the world’s money was shared out, the world would go round more happily, and there would be less evil and more happiness. Article/201106/138983

  One student to another: ;How are your English lessons coming along?;;Fine. I used to be the one who couldn#39;t understand Englishmen, and now it#39;s Englishmen who can#39;t understand me.;一位学生对另一位说:“你的英语最近学的怎么样了?”“很好,我过去不懂英国人说话,可现在是英国人不懂我的话了” Article/200805/38259。


  Celebrating Christmas: A Visit With Nicholas 圣诞老人,报上名来Christmas celebrates the birth of Christ, the Nativity of the babe in the manger whom Christians believe was the Son of God. Indeed, the very word Christmas means “Christ festival”. Yet there can be little doubt that for many it is Santa Claus — not Jesus — who is the human face of Christmas. In fact, it is fair to say that in much of the world, Santa is better known than the Christ who gave his name to the holiday.But how did the fat man in the Coca-Cola red-and-white suit become the symbol of Christmas? The truth is that like the Christmas story itself, the story of Saint Nicholas is a composite of history, myth, and legend.According to tradition, he was born in Asia Minor (modern-day Turkey) in about A.D. 270. When young, he traveled to Palestine and Egypt. Not long afterward, he became a bishop. During the Roman emperor Diocletian’s bloody persecution of Christians in 303, Nicholas was imprisoned. However, when Constantine the Great became emperor in 306, he legalized Christianity and made it the official religion of the Roman Empire. Nicholas was freed.The scribes tell us that Nicholas’s prayers and leadership during the great tribulation led many to become Christians. Nicholas continued to serve as bishop for many years. On December 6, 343, Nicholas the man died, and Saint Nicholas the legend was born.During his lifetime, Nicholas’s reputation for generosity and kindness gave rise to stories of miracles he performed for the poor, the weak--and children. After his death, devotion to Nicholas extended to all parts of Europe. His feast day was celebrated on December 6, but his reputation as a gift-giver later became attached to the celebration of Christmas on December 25.After the Reformation in the 16th century, Nicholas’s cult disappeared in most Protestant countries of Europe. But his legend was united with old Nordic folktales of a magician who punished naughty children and rewarded good children with presents. In England, he became known as Father Christmas. But in Holland, Saint Nicholas’ name and reputation persisted as “sinterklaas”. In the 17th century, Dutch colonists took this tradition with them to America. Later, Sinterklaas was adopted by the English-speaking majority as “Santa Claus.” The resulting image of a “jolly old elf” driving a sleigh with “eight tiny reindeer” crystallized in the 19th century. That was when Clement Moore wrote the now-famous poem “A Visit From Saint Nick.” And the red-and-white suit? That was created by a Coca-Cola adman in the 1930s.Although greatly commercialized, the modern Santa Claus still embodies8 Saint Nicholas’ generosity and love for children. And for some, he still points to the Nativity of the babe in the manger, and reminds us of the reason we celebrate Christmas.圣诞节是庆祝基督——这名被基督徒视为上帝之子的婴儿在马槽里的诞生。的确,“圣诞节”这个词意思就是“基督的庆典”。然而,可能有许多人会有点疑惑,圣诞节的代表人物竟是圣诞老人,而不是耶稣。事实上,这样说也不为过:在世界上许多地方,圣诞老人要比赋予该节日名称的基督还更出名。但是,那个穿着一套可口可乐红白颜色衣的胖子是怎么成为圣诞节的象征的呢?事实上,跟圣诞节本身的故事一样,圣人尼古拉的故事,也是集历史、神话和传说于一身。按照传统的说法,公元270年,尼古拉生于小亚细亚(现在的土耳其)。年轻时,他曾经到巴勒斯坦和埃及旅行。不久以后,他成为了一名主教。公元303年,罗马皇帝戴克里先血腥迫害基督徒期间,尼古拉被捕入狱。然而,公元306年君士坦丁大帝登基称帝,他使基督教合法化,并使之成为罗马帝国的国教。尼古拉也获释放。据史书记载,尼古拉在受难期间的祈祷和领导让很多人皈依成为基督教徒。(出狱后)尼古拉继续担任主教多年。公元343年12月6日,真人尼古拉去世,然而圣人尼可拉的传说诞生了。尼古拉在世时慷慨仁慈的名声衍生出他为穷人、弱者和孩子创造奇迹的许多故事。尼古拉死后,人们对他的挚爱延伸到欧洲各地。节日仪式定在12月6日举行,但是他身为“赠礼者”的声望,后来却与12月25日圣诞节的庆典扯上了关系。16世纪宗教改革运动以后,对尼古拉的膜拜便在多数欧洲新教国家销声匿迹了。但是有关他的传说却跟一个北欧民间故事结合了起来,故事中有位魔术师,他爱惩罚顽皮的孩子,并送礼物奖励好孩子。在英格兰,尼古拉成为家喻户晓的圣诞节之父。而在荷兰,圣人尼古拉的名声依旧以“Sinterklaas”的名字流传。17世纪,荷兰的殖民者将这个传统带到美洲。后来,“Sinterklaas”为多数说英语的人民所采用,并改成了“Santa Claus”。他最后的形象──“快乐的老矮人”驾着“八只小驯鹿”拉的雪橇──是在19世纪开始变得明确具体起来的。尔(Clement Moore)就在那时写了《圣人尼克的来访》这首闻名至今的诗。还有那件红白套装呢?那是在20世纪30年代,可口可乐公司的广告商创造出来的。尽管现代的圣诞老人已经被高度商业化,他仍旧表现了圣人尼古拉的宽大胸怀和对孩子们的爱。对某些人来说,他仍然象征着马槽里圣婴的诞生,并让我们想起庆祝圣诞节的缘由。 Article/200803/30108一个女人必须精通音乐、歌唱、图画、舞蹈以及现代语文,那才当得起这个称号;除此以外,她的仪表和步态,她的声调,她的谈吐和表情,都得有相当风趣,否则她就不够资格。;It ought to be good, ; he replied, ;it has been the work of many generations. ;;And then you have added so much to it yourself, you are always buying books. ;;I cannot comprehend the neglect of a family library in such days as these. ;;Neglect! I am sure you neglect nothing that can add to the beauties of that noble place. Charles, when you build YOUR house, I wish it may be half as delightful as Pemberley. ;;I wish it may. ;;But I would really advise you to make your purchase in that neighbourhood, and take Pemberley for a kind of model. There is not a finer county in England than Derbyshire. ;;With all my heart; I will buy Pemberley itself if Darcy will sell it. ;;I am talking of possibilities, Charles. ;;Upon my word, Caroline, I should think it more possible to get Pemberley by purchase than by imitation. ;Elizabeth was so much caught with what passed, as to leave her very little attention for her book; and soon laying it wholly aside, she drew near the card-table, and stationed herself between Mr. Bingley and his eldest sister, to observe the game.;Is Miss Darcy much grown since the spring?; said Miss Bingley; ;will she be as tall as I am?;;I think she will. She is now about Miss Elizabeth Bennet#39;s height, or rather taller. ;;How I long to see her again! I never met with anybody who delighted me so much. Such a countenance, such manners! And so extremely accomplished for her age! Her performance on the pianoforte is exquisite. ;;It is amazing to me, ; said Bingley, ;how young ladies can have patience to be so very accomplished as they all are. ;;All young ladies accomplished! My dear Charles, what do you mean?;;Yes, all of them, I think. They all paint tables, cover screens, and net purses. I scarcely know anyone who cannot do all this, and I am sure I never heard a young lady spoken of for the first time, without being informed that she was very accomplished. ;;Your list of the common extent of accomplishments, ; said Darcy, ;has too much truth. The word is applied to many a woman who deserves it no otherwise than by netting a purse or covering a screen. But I am very far from agreeing with you in your estimation of ladies in general. I cannot boast of knowing more than half-a-dozen, in the whole range of my acquaintance, that are really accomplished. ;;Nor I, I am sure, ; said Miss Bingley.;Then, ; observed Elizabeth, ;you must comprehend a great deal in your idea of an accomplished woman. ;;Yes, I do comprehend a great deal in it. ;;Oh! certainly, ; cried his faithful assistant, ;no one can be really esteemed accomplished who does not greatly surpass what is usually met with. A woman must have a thorough knowledge of music, singing, drawing, dancing, and the modern languages, to deserve the word; and besides all this, she must possess a certain something in her air and manner of walking, the tone of her voice, her address and expressions, or the word will be but half-deserved. ; Article/201106/141176

  Room 13-0713号房间 07  The door of number 13 opened suddenly and an arm came out. The arm was thin and covered in gray hairs. The fingernails were long and dirty.  Anderson shouted and pulled Jensen away from the door. The arm disappeared and the door closed. The sound of mad laughter came from number 13.  The landlord brought two men up the stairs. The men had axes in their hands. They swung their axes against the door of number 13.  Suddenly the men cried out and dropped their axes. They had hit a wall. The door of number 13 had disappeared.  In the morning, workmen pulled up the floor between rooms 12 and 14.  Under the floor they found a box. There were old papers inside the box. Anderson thought that the papers belonged to Nicolas Francken---- the man who had disappeared in 1560.  No one was able to the writing on the papers. It was in a strange language. The writing was brown. The ink looked old. But Anderson did not think it was ink. He thought the papers were written in blood.  号房间的门突然开了,从里面伸出一只干瘦的长满灰色毛发的胳膊,手上的指甲又长又脏。  安德森先生大叫一声,把延森从门边拉开。紧接着那胳膊便不见了,门也关上了。从13号房间里传来一阵发狂般的笑声。  旅馆老板带着两个人上楼来,他们挥动手里的斧子,要把13号房间的门劈开。  突然那两个人惨叫一声扔掉了手里的斧子,因为他们劈到了一堵墙,标着13号的那扇门不见了。  第二天早上,工人们把12号和14号房间之间的地板翘开。  他们在地板下发现了一个装着些陈旧纸张的盒子,安德森先生认为那些纸应该是早在1560年就失踪的尼古拉斯.弗兰肯的。  纸上写着些奇怪的文字,没人能看得懂。墨迹是褐色的,看起来应该是很久以前写成的。但安德森并不认为那是墨水,他觉得纸上的字是用血写成的。 Article/200812/57600有声名著之简爱Jene Eyer Chapter25 相关名著:查泰莱夫人的情人呼啸山庄 Article/200809/47262

  A local community college professor decided to fight back. “The price of books for our students is just getting higher and higher and, combined with the rising cost of tuition, it’s killing these kids,” said Peter Jason, Ph.D. “Remember, students are one of the poorest groups of people in America. Almost half of them have at least one part-time job. In fact, one of my students has three jobs. She is a part-time sales clerk at a clothing store three days a week, then works three evenings a week as a pizza cook, and on weekends she does manicures at a beauty salon. And she still manages to have a high GPA and go to school full-time.” Textbook prices are traditionally high. Adding to that problem, many college instructors change textbooks year after year; they either upgrade to a new edition or switch to an entirely different textbook. This further hurts students because if an instructor no longer uses a particular textbook, that book has no resale value. Dr. Jason decided to make life a little easier and a lot cheaper for his students by writing his own book on public speaking. “Many books have an increased price because of bells and whistles: CD-ROMs, lots of color photographs, and lots of graphics. I talked to my students, and many of them, like me, prefer to keep things simple. So, during a sabbatical a few years ago, I wrote my own textbook. I made sure that it wasn’t long-winded. I called it Successful Public Speaking: How To Be Brief, Concise, and to the Point. “Compared to most other public speaking primers, mine is half the number of pages, and one-third the price. That is, instead of . Plus, it is published in a three-ring binder format. So, when I wrote a second edition last year, students only had to buy the 35 new pages and delete 35 of the original pages. For only .00, they had upgraded to the new edition. I’ve had great feedback from my students about this loose-leaf concept. Maybe the word will get out, and more writers and publishers will try it.” Article/201106/141523

  “但是关于脚趾是怎么回事?”素甲鱼坚持说,“它怎么能用自己的鼻子扭转它们呢?” Alice said nothing; she had sat down with her face in her hands, wondering if anything would EVER happen in a natural way again. `I should like to have it explained,' said the Mock Turtle. `She can't explain it,' said the Gryphon hastily. `Go on with the next verse.' `But about his toes?' the Mock Turtle persisted. `How COULD he turn them out with his nose, you know?' `It's the first position in dancing.' Alice said; but was dfully puzzled by the whole thing, and longed to change the subject. `Go on with the next verse,' the Gryphon repeated impatiently: `it begins "I passed by his garden."' Alice did not dare to disobey, though she felt sure it would all come wrong, and she went on in a trembling voice:-- `I passed by his garden, and marked, with one eye, How the Owl and the Panther were sharing a pie--' Article/201104/131619

  Learning is one of the most important things we do in life. It starts pretty much when we’re born. In fact, many scientists say learning begins earlier. We listen to the outside sounds. This is when we first start learning a language. Our ears get used to the different patterns of intonation. Learning is a lifelong process. We spend our childhood years doing nothing but learning. We learn a language before we are two. We learn how to play and do all the everyday things people do. Most people think learning only begins at school. I’m not sure about this. Are we really learning, or are we just memorizing things? I think a lot of learning happens outside school. We learn more from our hobbies and interests than what we learn from school books.
