月半

好久没有正经做菜了, 今天终于又重起炉灶.

室友搬走才一天, 竟然觉得房间突然太空旷. 大概因为未来没有着落.

前天出去买东西, 看见月亮圆的近乎不可思议, 到夜里更是白亮的不可思议, 整个天空里的云都照的清清楚楚. 是十五或者十六了吗?

刚又看到Kant的那句话, 还是很感动, 抄过来:

Two things fill the mind with ever new, and increasing admiration and awe, the more often and steadily we reflect upon them: the starry heavens above me and the moral law within me.
-Epitaph (from Critique of Practical Reason 5:161)

听歌听到<改变1995>, 隐隐有往事如梦的感觉.

可能是这两天睡多了.

 

[转自八阙]勿用微波炉烧开水

Dear All,

An important topic to learn.

A 26-year old person decided to have a cup of coffee. He took a cup of water and put it in the microwave to heat it up (something that he had done numerous times before). I am not sure how long he set the timer for, but he told me he wanted to bring the water to a boil. When the timer shut the oven off, he removed the cup from the oven. As he looked into the cup, he noted that the water was not boiling, but instantly the water in the cup “blew up” into his face. The cup remained intact until he threw it out of his hand but all the water had flown out into his face due to the build up of energy. His whole face is blistered and he has 1st and 2nd degree burns to his face which may leave scarring. He also may have lost partial sight in his left eye. While at the hospital, the doctor who was attending to him stated that this is fairly common occurrence and water (alone) should never be heated in a microwave oven. If water is heated in this manner, something should be placed in the cup to diffuse the energy such as: a wooden stir stick, tea bag, etc. It is however a much safer choice to boil the water in a tea kettle.

General Electric’s response:

Thanks for contacting us. I will be happy to assist you. The e-mail that you received is correct. Microwaved water and other liquids do not always bubble when they reach the boiling point. They can actually get superheated and not bubble at all. The superheated liquid will bubble up out of the cup when it is moved or when something like a spoon or tea bag is put into it. To prevent this from happening and causing injury, do not heat any liquid for more than two minutes per cup. After heating, let the cup stand in the microwave for thirty seconds before moving it or adding anything into it.

 

Light From A Dead Star

Lush的歌一首.我一句词也没听懂过(实际上是没注意过), 不过对歌的印象倒深的很. 嗯嗯…算得上欣赏吧.

零散地听歌和音乐, 有时会碰到有趣的事.

曾经在公车上碰到健谈的…醉汉(?!), 拼命和俺们几个同学搭话, 在让人无法理解地嘟哝了n久之后突然冒出一句知道Oasis么?说是一个band, 歌很不错云云.当时差点想大喊总算有点共同话题了~Stop Crying Your Heart Out! 不过其实那是我唯一听过的oasis的歌.

…插花一句, stop crying your heart out会让俺联想到周星星的电影里, 痨病的新郎咳着咳着把肺咳出来了-___-b

上星期下了the corpse bride, 但是一直没看…总觉得掉着眼珠或手骨之类的主角即使是搞笑也很恐怖.

那天看csi一个不小心看到一个处理人头的场景, 恶心的…mmd也未免太写实了. 以前看的毒害了俺幼小心灵多年的, 江户川乱步的石榴之谜里的恐怖场景, 完全被活生生映现出来. 看来*国人民这种科学的写实式变态和*本人民这样夸张的写意式变态有时颇有异曲同工之妙.

最近太紧张, 事情忙不完, roommate找不到…

所以需要一鼓作气把事情做了, 去逛街看电影照相吃喝玩乐一番.

一切都会好起来底, 就像天气一样…

冬天

熬了几星期, 终于可以暂时解放一把了.

脚步虚浮, 走在路上人都像在飘…

不过总算可以去买东西了, 想念已久的水果们啊(感动)

圣诞节前一个月, 这里已经到处充满了节日气氛了. 真是奇怪的传统.

外面阳光灿烂, 然而积雪还未化尽, 还是有点冷. 呼气都是白霜.

我对节日没什么兴趣, 只希望暖和的天气快点到来吧.

音乐和萝卜

一时兴起去down了Howl’s Moving Castle的Image Album. 听了却不知为啥有点失望, 于是就…

又去down了OST专辑.

其实是因为觉得片子里的那个主旋律特别入耳. 空中的漫步那一段开始就令俺印象极其深刻了.  配合三拍子的快步舞曲, 两个人在空中轻踏, 下方的地面上是华丽丽的舞场, 旋转的女子们衣裙像彩花一样绽开…真是浪漫. 之后这乐曲又节奏不断变化反复出现, 配合情节, 有时沉静, 有时忧伤, 每次都让人完全感觉不同.

不过听OST后还是有点…觉得要配合画面和情节才有效果.

可是当时幽灵公主的OST 和那张交响乐的专辑, 则是单独放也怎么听怎么觉得好的.

不过竟然会用一个晚上去下音乐, 果然精神压力大了人似乎就会做出特别有创意的事.

今日几乎弹尽粮绝, 拉开冰箱门却十分侥幸地看到了半只萝卜的身影…稍微回想了一下, 貌似它已经娴雅地躺在那里至少一个半月了(保守估计). 拿出来仔细检查了一下, 惊异地发现它竟然还十分健康可食的样子, 不由感慨万分, 喜极泣下: 萝卜啊萝卜, 以前我一直嫌它味道不爽, 对它诸多偏见. 不料果然是路遥知马力, 日久见菜心. 在这论文逼身而又冰天雪地的日子里, 在我即将run out of food的时刻, 它却显现持久耐放的英雄本色, 挺身而出救我于饥荒之中…我决定尽弃前嫌, 从此好好对它!

……

于是我就把它做了. hmmm, 果然还能吃.

[转自八阙] 英语实用脏话精选

可以不讲,不可不懂:英语实用脏话精选

1. I’m so fed up with your BS. Cut the crap. 我受够了你的废话,少说废话吧.

美女(美国的女人)是不喜欢说shit这个不雅的字的,所以她们就说shoot,或是BS(=Bull shit)来表示她们还是很有气质的. “Cut your crap.”是当你听到对方废话连篇,讲个不停时,你就可以说, “Cut the crap.”相当于中文里的废话少话.

2. Hey! wise up! 放聪明点好吗?

当别人作了什么愚蠢的事时,你可以说, “Don’t be stupid”或是”Don’t be silly.”但是这是非常不礼貌的说法.比较客气一点的说法就是, wise up!它就相当于中文里的放聪明点.你也可以用坚酸刻薄的语气说. Wise up, please.然后故意把please的尾音拉得长长的.

也有人会说, Hey! grow up.意思就是你长大一点好不好?例如有人二十岁了却还不会自己补衣服,你就可以说Hey! grow up.这根wise up是不是也差不多呢?

3. Put up or shut up. 要吗你就去做,不然就给我闭嘴.

有些人就是出那张嘴,只会出意见,此时就可以说, Put up or shut up.要注意的是,Put up字典上是查不到”自己去做”的意思,但是见怪不怪,很多笔记本上的用法都是字典上查不到的.比方说今天你在写程式,有人明明不懂却喜欢在一旁指挥你, 这时候你就可以说, Put up or shut up.

有时为了要加强shut up的语气,老美会把它说成, shut the f**k up.这句话常在二人火气很大时的对话中可以听到,例如电影The house on the haunted hill女主角身陷鬼屋之中,其它人又七嘴八舌时,她就很生气地说了一句, shut the f**k up.

这句话也让我想到一句成语, walk the walk, talk the talk,也就是说到就要作到,有点像是中文里知行要合一的意思,或是只说, walk the talk也可以.

4. You eat with that mouth? 你是用这张嘴吃饭的吗?

别人对你说脏话,你就回敬他这一句,言下之意,就是你的嘴那么脏,你还用这张嘴吃饭.还有一种说法, “You kiss your Momma with that mouth?”就是说你也是用这脏嘴亲你***吗?所以下次记得如果有老美对你说脏话,记得不要再Fxxx回去,保持风度,说一句, “You eat with that mouth?”就扯平了

5. You are dead meat. 你死定了.

我们说你完蛋了,可以说”You are dead.”或是像这样说”You are dead meat.”意思都是一样的,比如说你跟别人说过不淮碰我的东西,但有人他就是老爱用你的东西,下次要是再被你抓到,你就可以说, “You are dead meat.”

6. Don’t you dare! How dare you! 你好大的胆子啊!

这句话跟中文里”你好大的胆子”是一样,可以在二种场合说,第一种是很严肃的场合,比如说小孩子很调皮,讲又讲不听,父母就会说, “Don’t you dare!”那意思就是这个小孩要当心点,不然等会就要挨打了.另一种场合是开玩笑,比如有人跟你说我跟某网友约会去了,你说”Don’t you dare?”就有点开玩笑的语气. (你不怕被恐龙给吃了吗?)

Dare在英文里还有许多有趣的用法,例如, “You dare me.”或是”I double dare you.”还有一种游戏叫Truth or Dare,限于篇幅,容后再作介绍.

7. Don’t push me around. 不要摆布我.

这个词很有意思,把你推来推去,作摆布解释,如果有人指挥你一下作这个一下作那个,你就可以用这一句Hey! Don’t push me around.通常当我讲”Don’t push me around.”时,我还会想到一个字bossy. Bossy就是说像是老板一样,喜欢指挥别人.例如,”You are so bossy. I don’t like that.”

这句话也可以单讲, “Don’t push me.”或是”Don’t push me any further.”还有一句根push有关的成语,叫push the button,意思就是,指使, *纵.例如, “I know why you are doing this, someone is pushing your button!”

8. Are you raised in the barn? 你是不是乡下长大的啊?

这句话是形容一个人没教养,但是是比较开玩笑的语气.比如说有人坐没坐像,你就可以对他说这一句. Barn原指仓.我翻成乡下比较能跟中文的意思结合.老美常用barn或是backyard来形容一个人没有教养或是没有文化,像是那天在电视上听到一句,”No backyard language in my house.”就是说,在我的家里不准讲粗话.

9. You want to step outside? You want to take this outside? 你想要外面解决吗?

老美跟我们一样,要是二个人一言不合吵起来了,可能就有人要说这一句了.指的就是要不要出去打架啦.还有一些我听过类似的用法,例如, “Do you want to pick a fight?” 你要挑起争端吗?或是”This means war.”这就意谓著跟我宣战.

10. You and what army? You and who else? 你和哪一路的人马啊?

要是有人跟你说”Do you want to step outside?”,就回他这一句吧.意思是说,是喔…那你找了多少人马要来打架啊?有时候电视里出现这句对白的时候,还会打出一排军队的计算机动画,非常地有意思.

还有一句话也很好玩,叫”Who’s side are you on?”这就是在快要打架时,你问人家说,你到底是站在哪一边的?

 

无题

好像原来用的那种css版式没有了…不得已只好在现有基础上改了一下唉呜.

下午终于考完了一门…虽然一向有临时抱佛脚的优良传统(-__-b), 但是这次之前忒也托大了.以至这两天简直是掐着分钟睡觉, 累西皮了啊…不过结果应该尚可.

之后还要奋战! 不过今天晚上让我先休息一下吧.

这几天外面雪都有半尺了, 今天还在下, 希望过两天能出巨大的太阳把它们化光光! 这样我就好出门买东西了……

p.s. 好想看哈里波特…看广告很fancy…

eh…

what happened?

why the configuration and the skin of the blog changed?

 

多日不见的晴天

前两日山下大雾, 山上看就像云海.
可惜所处位置不够高, view被树林挡了不少.
 
昨天: 
       
今天 (透过玻璃照的所以有影子) 
      
下午就又开始下雨了, 期间小晴了一下, 于是…
                     
传说中的彩虹!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!其实外围还有一圈霓, 但是很淡很淡, 照片中很难看出来.

晚上又开始雨淋淋的了…

其实最漂亮是昨天傍晚, 粉色, 金色, 淡红色的云雾环绕, 真是如梦似幻. 然而根据相机携带第一定律, 那时候的我又是没带着照相机的.

Back!

So glad to see you back, drl

雨霁

长久不写对不起blog, 所以加两句.

昨天终于天晴了一日, 真是难得的阳光和蓝天啊, 还能看见远处山顶上薄雪下的一层一层苍苍的树色, 好像画一样.
但是我没带相机, 当时想没关系, 反正还有机会.
然而今天就又下雨了, 天色阴沉.

感慨1. 唉这真不是人呆的地方 2. 为什么~美好的时光总是特别的短暂 3. 有机会就要抓住, 错过了就不知道哪年再有了 4. …(还没想到)

这星期又要忙乱了, 之后一个月内都恐怕都要赶命.

记一下

昨天看到一段: 
Anterograde amnesiacs…are commonly able to recall information acquired before injury, and they are able to acquire implicit information…but they are unable to recall new explicit information for more than a minute…
(while Retrograde amnesia is the more familiar kind in which people forget their past but can form new memories…)

第一个想到的就是“Memento”.
公认拍的很聪明的片子, 让人极其难忘…可是俺觉得比恐怖片还恐怖, 超级暗黑的故事.
如今从一个遥远的虚幻故事上升到实际存在的定义和案例了, 呜……

conference

今天和同学去conference , 晚到了半天…所幸到的时候正是一个seminar结束中场休息时间. 众人都在外面喝咖啡饮料, 我们就趁机领了名牌和写着名字的纸架溜进会场找位子坐. 圆形的会场, 报告者站在场地正中, 周围座位卫星状散开. 一眼看去大部分座位上都已经摆上了名字, 有一片会场却特别空只零星摆了几个名字, 于是我们就在那里随便找两个位子坐下了.

过了一会新的seminar开始, 众人纷纷回到座位上, 演讲者也就位, 我突然发现情况不妙:
原来我们正坐在报告者的背后, 面对着几乎所有听众, 类似”主席台”的地方. 原来这半片场地是留给commentateur之类要发言的人的…-__-b

…作贼必定心虚…我只觉台下群众目光灼灼, 似乎颇觉好奇为什么多出两个家伙坐在那里…

冒着冷汗写张纸条递给坐身边的同学: “我们好像坐错地方了……“
不一会接到同学传回来的条子: “我也觉得. 没事. 你至少还没把自己的名字摆到桌上!“
