一千种快乐 1000 Awesome Things

更新时间:2011-08-30    来源/发布:www.en369.cn    作者/编辑:英语作文网

2008年,加拿大一名朝九晚五的普通白领尼尔·帕斯理查(Neil Pasricha),在经受了婚姻破灭、好友跳楼的连串噩耗后,开始撰写博客 “1000awesomethings.com”。从创办一个默默无闻的网站到获得有互联网奥斯卡之称的威比奖(The Webby Awards)而声名显赫,他从没想到自己的博客会引起这么多人的注意——甚至一贴有几万人参加讨论,比如“如何享用食品袋里的最后一片薯片”。其博文更是获得了一众书商的青睐,于今年4月推出了《The Book of Awesome》一书。
  “通过专注于生活中积极的一面,我在最低谷的时候迎来了人生的高峰。”
  ——尼尔·帕斯理查

  
  The Optimistic Part of Life   生活中的正能量
  Neil: It’s just a really rough world right now. We’ve got the ice caps melting, unemployment’s rising, gas prices are rising again, we’ve got pirates in the ocean, wars overseas. It’s rough, and so 1000awesomethings.com is meant to be the two or three minutes in your day where you kinda get to forget how heavy the news is right now and talk about wearing underwear just out of the dryer. And talking about finding a $10 bill in your old jacket pocket. You know, how ’bout the bakery air, when you walk into a bakery and you get that warm front of, like,1)croissants in your face. Everybody’s got their own, but there’s a lot of things that we can talk about to help us forget how rough it is out there, and so we can just sort of celebrate the optimistic part of life.

  尼尔:现今世界真是噩耗连连。我们看到冰山融化,失业率上升,油价再度上涨,海盗出没,海外战火不断。时世艰辛,因此1000awesomethings.com网就是让你在生活中留两三分钟时间忘却现时沉重的新闻,聊聊穿上刚从干衣机拿出来的内衣时的舒服,谈谈在旧外套的衣袋中摸到一张10美金钞票时的惊喜。又或是那烘焙的香气——当你走进一家面包店,那暖暖的如牛角包一般的香气扑面而来。每个人都有属于他自己的小快乐,但还是有许多话题能让我们可以忘记生活的艰难,使得我们可以赞颂生活中积极的一面。

  My Inspiration in “Beer + Friend”  “啤酒+朋友”的灵感
  Interviewer: Do you draw your inspiration from anything other than everyday life?
  Neil: You know, more than anything, the inspiration really is grabbing a beer and chicken wings with friends, and somebody deciding to go on a huge 2)rant at night and saying, “You know what’s awesome? When you like those little baby drumstick chicken wings and the guy you’re with likes those flat fat chicken wings, and you guys both like hot sauce, ’cause then you’ve met your perfect chicken wing partner.” And I remember that specific conversation happening, and, like, that was the next day’s blog post, so you could check in the 3)archives. The “perfect chicken wing partner,” you know, 4)spawned perfectly from that conversation. And more than anything it’s people going on 5)hilarious rants about something they find enjoyable, and instead of letting them die, all I do is just write them down.

  采访者:你会不会从其他事物而非日常生活中吸取灵感?
