making you feel like you need hundreds of highly

The cookware industry thrives on  specialized tools to make your dinner. This is perhaps why, in the decade and a half since I graduated from college, I have accumulated heaps of kitchen tools, most of which are poorly made and don’t get much use. I recently took a glance at my utensil drawer and found: 12 different knives, five spatulas (so… (阅读全文)

Matthias scrambled through, followed by Warbeak. They found themselves completely surrounded by sparrows as the door slammed shut behind them. The birds argued and chattered aloud as they sprang upon Matthias, pinning him to the lid of the door with many claws. He was unable to move a single whisker. As quickly as it had started, the noise ceased… (阅读全文)

Should I learn the story of the whipcord forwards like an annalist, or backward like a modern historian? Clearly it could be done in a measure by either method. Here was a highly finished product of which either might furnish the story, and of which, we may suppose, I knew nothing. I tried the backward way, and by the aid of a needle began to unr… (阅读全文)

The ship  landed in a medley  of noises. There was  the far-off hiss of theatmosphere cutting  and sliding past the  metal of the ship.  There was thesteady drone  of the  conditioners fighting the  heat of friction,  and theslower rumble  of the  engines enforcing deceleration. There&nb… (阅读全文)

He accordingly set the phonograph

It is all so wild, and mysterious, and strange that if I had not known Jonathan’s experience in Transylvania I could not have believed. As it was, I didn’t know what to believe, and so got out of my difficulty by attending to something else. I took the cover off my typewriter, and said to Dr. Seward reenex facial:— “Let me write this all out now…. (阅读全文)

They implored me to let them

In the hall two of the maids came to me, and asked if they or either of them might not sit up with Miss Lucy. ; and when I said it was Dr. Van Helsing’s wish that either he or I should sit up, they asked me quite piteously to intercede with the “foreign gentleman.” I was much touched by their kindness.

A nap would refresh him for the ordeal ahead. Wearily, he tottered off to his bed. Yet when he closed his eyes, he could still see the light of the comet, red and flery and… (阅读全文)

Shaking from head to foot, thrilled with ungovernable excitement, I continued- ‘I am glad you are no relation of mine: I will never call you aunt again so long as I live. I will never come to see you when I am grown up; and if any one asks me how I liked you, and how you treated me, I wi… (阅读全文)

Our brain is like a computer host CPU system

Day of good fast, the tail and head of the year again, never break the finger when the children look forward to the joy of the New Year, a years make you old, time flies like a sense of urgency a flood in my heart, reminds me Zhu Zhiqing said: “the swallow, will come back again; willow Withers, with green again, peach blossom thanks, have open ag… (阅读全文)
