Alvin didn’t like the way the waiter walked—he projected an air of arrogance. The waiter came to their table with three glasses in one hand and three s in the other. His thumb and fingers were all over the insides of the glasses. Alvin was disgusted. Hank and Nathan didn't seem to mind. “Any germ that doesn’t kill you, just makes you stronger,” Hank said. Alvin told Hank to remember that in a day or so when he was barfing in the toilet.Alvin refused to drink or eat anything. He told them he would eat when he got home. Ten minutes later, after finally getting the waiter’s attention, Hank and Nathan each ordered a small salad, a double cheeseburger with chips, and a couple of beers. Alvin asked the waiter if he had worked there long. “Long enough,” the waiter replied. When he returned with the beers, Nathan told the waiter thanks. The waiter said nothing in reply.“Did you see that?” Alvin asked. “You said thanks, and he didn’t bother to say you’re welcome.” Hank said that younger people today were not taught the finer points of etiquette.“The finer points?!” Alvin said. “The finer points are knowing which side of the plate the forks and spoons are supposed to be on. Knowing when to say ‘sir,’ ‘thank you,’ and ‘you’re welcome’ is elementary etiquette.” The waiter came back to clear the plates from the table. Nathan hadn’t quite finished, but said nothing. When the waiter brought the bill about ten minutes later, Alvin motioned to him.“Give me the bill,” he said. “I’m going to treat my friends.” Wordlessly, the waiter placed the bill in front of Alvin.Nathan and Hank were astounded. “You know,” said Nathan, “this might be the first time I’ve ever seen you pick up the tab. What’s the occasion?” Alvin told Nathan that he just felt like being nice to his friends for a change. The bill was . After his friends had left the table, Alvin put a 35-cent tip on the table. Article/201105/135575龙岩人工受孕医院排名My first weekend in Forks passed without incident. Charlie, unused to spending time in the usually empty house, worked most of the weekend. I cleaned the house, got ahead on my homework, and wrote my mom more bogusly cheerful e-mail. I did drive to the library Saturday, but it was so poorly stocked that I didn#39;t bother to get a card; I would have to make a date to visit Olympia or Seattle soon and find a good bookstore. I wondered idly what kind of gas mileage the truck got… and shuddered at the thought.  我在福克斯的第一个周末过得很平淡。查理,不习惯袋在这平常空无一人的房子里,周末大部分时间都在加班。我打扫了房子,做完了作业,还给我妈写了一封电子邮件,这一次我装得更高兴。我星期六的确开车去了图书馆,但是里面的藏书实在是少得太可怜了,我也就懒得废那个劲去办卡了;我可能得定个日子,过几天去参观参观奥林匹亚或西雅图并找一个好点儿的书店。我闲得无聊,想到了那辆卡车的油耗有多大……这一想,想得我不寒而栗。   The rain stayed soft over the weekend, quiet, so I was able to sleep well.  周末雨一直不大,很安静,所以能够睡得很好。  People greeted me in the parking lot Monday morning. I didn#39;t know all their names, but I waved back and smiled at everyone.It was colder this morning, but happily not raining. In English, Mike took his accustomed seat by my side. We had a pop quiz on Wuthering Heights. It was straightforward, very easy.  星期一早上在停车场,人们纷纷跟我打招呼。我并不知道他们所有人的名字,但我还是微笑着冲每个人挥了挥手。今天早上更冷了,但令人高兴的是没有下雨。上英语课时,迈克习惯地坐在了我旁边的座位上。老师搞了一次突然袭击,就《呼啸山庄》跟我们来了一次小测验。题目很简单,非常容易。  All in all, I was feeling a lot more comfortable than I had thought I would feel by this point. More comfortable than I had ever expected to feel here.  总的说来,到目前为止,我感觉比我想象的要舒多了。在这儿的感觉,比我预料到的要舒一些。  When we walked out of class, the air was full of swirling bits of white. I could hear people shouting excitedly to each other. The wind bit at my cheeks, my nose.  我们下课出来时,只见漫天飞舞着一些白色的点点。我听见人们在兴奋地相互大喊大叫。风吹打着我的脸颊和鼻子。  ;Wow,; Mike said. ;It#39;s snowing.;  ;哇,;迈克叫道,;下雪喽。;  I looked at the little cotton fluffs that were building up along the sidewalk and swirling erratically past my face.  我看了看那些小小的棉花一样的雪团儿,它们在人行道上越积越厚,从我的脸前横扫而过,狂飞乱舞。  ;Ew.; Snow. There went my good day.  ;噫。;讨厌的雪,我的好日子就这么完了。  He looked surprised. ;Don#39;t you like snow?;  他显得很惊讶:;你不喜欢下雪?;  ;No. That means it#39;s too cold for rain.; Obviously. ;Besides, I thought it was supposed to come down in flakes — you know,each one unique and all that. These just look like the ends of Q-tips.;  ;不喜欢。那意味着天冷得都不能下雨了。;显而易见,;而且,我还以为雪下下来的时候,应该是一片片的雪花呢——你知道的,每一朵都很独特,等等。这些看上去就像棉签头儿似的。;  ;Haven#39;t you ever seen snow fall before?; he asked incredulously.  ;你以前没见过雪?;他怀疑地问道。  ;Sure I have.; I paused. ;On TV.;  ;当然见过啦。;我顿了一下,;在电视上见过。;  Mike laughed. And then a big, squishy ball of dripping snow smacked into the back of his head. We both turned to see where it came from. I had my suspicions about Eric, who was walking away, his back toward us — in the wrong direction for his next class.Mike appatently had the same notion. He bent over and began scraping together a pile of the white mush.  迈克笑了起来。接着,一个湿漉漉的大雪球啪地一声砸在了他的后脑勺上。我俩都扭过头去,看是从哪里扔过来的。我怀疑是埃里克干的,他正走开,背对着我们,方向与他下一节课的方向相反。迈克显然也持相同的看法。他俯下身去,拢了一堆白色的雪块。  ;I#39;ll see you at lunch, okay?; I kept walking as I spoke. ;Once people start throwing wet stuff, I go inside.;  ;我们吃午饭的时候见怎么样?;我边走边说,;人们只要一开始扔湿东西,我就往屋里钻。;  He just nodded, his eyes on Eric#39;s retreating figure.  他只是点了点头,眼睛盯着埃里克远去的背影。  Throughout the morning, everyone chattered excitedly about the snow; apparently it was the first snowfall of the new year. I kept my mouth shut. Sure, it was drier than rain — until it melted in your socks.  整个一上午,每个人都在兴高采烈地谈论下雪的事;显然这还是新的一年里头的头一场雪。我没有开口。无疑,雪是比雨干一些——在你的袜子里化成水之前。  I walked alertly to the cafeteria with Jessica after Spanish. Mush balls were flying everywhere. I kept a binder in my hands,y to use it as a shield if necessary. Jessica thought I was hilarious, but something in my expression kept her from lobbing a snowball at me herself.  下了西班牙语课后,我和杰西卡一起去自助餐厅,一路上我都很警惕。到处都飞舞着软乎乎的雪球。我手里拿着一个活页夹,准备遇上情况就拿它当挡箭牌。杰西卡认为我很搞笑,但看了我的表情后,她放弃了扔我个雪球的念头。 Article/201204/177971福州市治疗无精哪间医院好《哈克贝里·费恩历险记》第6章:第1节 相关专题:· 有声读物-安徒生童话故事·有声读物-浪漫满屋· 新概念优美背诵短文50篇 Article/200809/47516Frank Lloyd Wright,1867-1959: The greatest American building designer of the twentieth centuryOne critic said Wright's ideas were 50 years ahead of his time. VOICE ONE:I'm Phoebe Zimmerman.VOICE TWO:And I'm Steve Ember with the VOA Special English program People in America. Today we tell about the life and work of the greatest American building designer of the twentieth century, Frank Lloyd Wright. (MUSIC)VOICE ONE:Frank Lloyd Wright Frank Lloyd Wright designed buildings for more than seventy years. He did most of his work from nineteen hundred through the nineteen fifties. He designed houses, schools, churches, public buildings, and office buildings.Critics say Frank Lloyd Wright was one of America's most creative architects. One critic said his ideas were fifty years ahead of the time in which he lived.(MUSIC)VOICE TWO:Frank Lloyd Wright was born in eighteen- sixty?seven in the middle western state of Wisconsin. He studied engineering at the University of Wisconsin. In eighteen eighty?seven, he went to the city of Chicago. He got a job in the office of the famous architects, Louis Sullivan and Dankmar Adler.Several years later, Wright established his own building design business. He began by designing homes for people living in and near Chicago. These homes were called "prairie houses."VOICE ONE:Prairie houses were long and low. They seemed to grow out of the ground. They were built of wood and other natural materials. The indoors expanded to the outdoors by extending the floor. This created what seemed like a room without walls or a roof.In nineteen-oh-two, Wright designed one prairie house, called the Willits House, in the town of Highland Park. The house was shaped like a cross. It was built around a huge fireplace. The rooms were designed so they seemed to flow into each other.VOICE TWO: Robie House Visitors to Chicago can see another of Wright's prairie houses. It is called the Robie House. It looks like a series of long, low rooms on different levels. The rooms seem to float over the ground. Wright designed everything in the house, including the furniture and floor coverings. Wright's prairie houses had a great influence on home design in America. Even today, one hundred years later, his prairie houses appear very modern.VOICE ONE:In the nineteen thirties, Wright developed what he called "Usonian" houses. Usonia was his name for a perfect, democratic ed States of America. Usonian houses were planned to be low cost. Wright designed them for the American middle class. These are the majority of Americans who are neither very rich nor very poor.Frank Lloyd Wright believed that all middle class families in America should be able to own a house that was designed well. He believed that the ed States could not be a true democracy if people did not own their own house on their own piece of land.VOICE TWO:Usonian houses were built on a flat base of concrete. The base was level with the ground. Wright believed that was better and less costly than the common method of digging a hole in the ground for the base. Low?cost houses based on the Usonian idea became very popular in America in the nineteen fifties. Visitors can see one of Wright's Usonian homes near Washington, D. C. It is the Pope-Leighy House in Alexandria, Virginia.(MUSIC)VOICE ONE:Frank Lloyd Wright believed in sping his ideas to young building designers. In nineteen thirty?two, he established a school called the Taliesin Fellowship. Architectural students paid to live and work with him.During the summer, they worked at his home near Spring Green, Wisconsin. Wright called this house "Taliesin." That is a Welsh name meaning "shining brow." It was built of stone and wood into the top of a hill.During the winter, they worked at Taliesin West. This was Wright's home and architecture office near Phoenix, Arizona. Wright and his students started building it in nineteen thirty-seven in the Sonoran Desert. VOICE TWO:Taliesin West Taliesin West is an example of Frank Lloyd Wright's ideas of organic architecture taking root in the desert. He believed that architecture should have life and spirit. He said a building should appear to grow naturally and easily from its base into its surroundings. Selecting the best place to put a building became a most important first step in the design process.Frank Lloyd Wright had discovered the beauty of the desert in nineteen twenty-seven when he was asked to help with the design of the Arizona Biltmore hotel. He continued to return to the desert with his students to escape the harsh winters in Wisconsin. Ten years later he found a perfect place for his winter home and school. He bought about three hundred hectares of desert land at the foot of the McDowell Mountains near Scottsdale, Arizona. Wright said: " I was struck by the beauty of the desert, by the dry, clear sun-filled air, by the stark geometry of the mountains." He wanted everyone who visited Taliesin West to feel this same sense of place.VOICE ONE:His architecture students helped him gather rocks and sand from the desert floor to use as building materials. They began a series of buildings that became home, office and school. Wright kept working on and changing what he called a building made of many buildings for twenty years.Today, Taliesin West has many low stone buildings linked together by walkways and courtyards. It is still very much alive with activity. About seventy people live, work and study there. Guides take visitors through what is one of America's most important cultural treasures. VOICE TWO: Falling Water In nineteen thirty?seven, Wright designed a house near the city of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. It is a fine example of his idea of organic architecture. The house is called "Fallingwater." It sits on huge rocks next to a small river. It extends over a waterfall. From one part of the house, a person can step down a stairway over the water."Fallingwater" is so unusual and so beautiful that it came to represent modern American architecture. One critic calls it the greatest house of the twentieth century. Like Taliesin West, "Fallingwater" is open to the public. VOICE ONE:Frank Lloyd Wright also is famous for designing imaginative public buildings. In nineteen?oh?four, he designed an office building for the Larkin Soap Company in Buffalo, New York. The offices were organized around a tall open space. At the top was a glass roof to let sunlight into the center.In the late nineteen thirties, Wright designed an office building for the Johnson Wax Company in Racine, Wisconsin. It also had one great room without traditional walls or windows. The outside of the building was made of smooth, curved brick and glass.(MUSIC)VOICE TWO:In nineteen forty?three, Frank Lloyd Wright designed one of his most famous projects: the Guggenheim Museum of Art in New York City. The building was completed in nineteen sixty, the year following his death.The Guggenheim Museum in New York The Guggenheim is unusual because it is a circle. Inside the museum, a walkway rises in a circle from the lowest floor almost to the top. Visitors move along this walkway to see the artwork on the walls.The Guggenheim museum was very different from Wright's other designs. It even violated one of his own rules of design: the Guggenheim's shape is completely different from any of the buildings around it. VOICE ONE:When Wright was a very old man, he designed the Marin County Civic Center in San Rafael, California, near San Francisco. The Civic Center project was one of his most imaginative designs. It is a series of long buildings between two hills. Frank Lloyd Wright believed that architecture is life itself taking form. "Therefore," he said, "it is the truest record of life as it was lived in the world yesterday, as it is lived today, or ever will be lived." Frank Lloyd Wright died in nineteen fifty-nine, in Phoenix, Arizona. He was ninety?one years old. His buildings remain a record of the best of American Twentieth Century culture.(MUSIC)VOICE TWO:This Special English program was written by Shelley Gollust and Marilyn Christiano. It was produced by Lawan Davis. Our studio engineer was Max Carroll. I'm Steve Ember.VOICE ONE:And I'm Phoebe Zimmerman.
