何の気なしにTVのチャンネルを回したら
NHKの「みんなのうた」で聞き覚えの有る声が。
この透き通るような高い声は遊佐未森だ。
映されている絵は黒い猫。
私にも黒猫がいるので、なんかきになって
そのままチャンネルを固定して聞いてみた。

遊佐未森さんが実体験に基づいて
黒猫との出会いから別れまでをつづった曲。
ちょっとしんみり切ない。

NHK『みんなのうた』では2005年12月~2006年1月放送予定。

適職・・・なのか?
DVDに録画したまま見損ねていた
「全国一斉新iQテスト」をようやくやった。
なんとも納得がいか~~~ん!

私の脳は「右・右型」
ものごとを直感的に理解し(右脳で入力)
感覚的に表現する(右脳で出力)タイプらしい。
そして「人志向」

適職は以下のとおり。
ミュージシャン、映画監督、プロデューサー、デザイナー、
お笑い芸人、介護士、保育士、カウンセラー、スタイリスト

むむむ・・・・どれにも興味がないんですが・・・(^_^;)。
特にお笑い・・って自他共に認めるお笑いセンスゼロ人間なのに。

以前は左脳系だった気がするのだが、思い切り右の結果が。
歳を重ねていくごとに、使っている脳が変化してるのかしら。

YOU KNOW YOU ARE LIVING IN 2005 when...
我が家のマイクロウェーブには数字パネルがないので
1に関しては例外だけれど、ほかはexactly...と笑うしかないわ。

1. You accidentally enter your password on the microwave.

2. You haven't played solitaire with real cards in years.

3. You have a list of 15 phone numbers to reach your family of 3.

4. You e-mail the person who works at the desk next to you.

5. Your reason for not staying in touch with friends and family is that they don't have e-mail addresses.

6. You pull up in your own driveway and use your cell phone to see if anyone is home to help you carry in the groceries.

7. Every commercial on television has a web site at the bottom of the screen.

8. Leaving the house without your cell phone, which you didn't have the first 20 or 30 (or 60) years of your life, is now a cause for panic and you turn around to go
and get it.

10. You get up in the morning and go on line before getting your coffee.

11. You start tilting your head sideways to smile. : )

12. You're reading this and nodding and laughing.

13. Even worse, you know exactly to whom you are going to forward this message.

14. You are too busy to notice there was no #9 on this list.

15. You actually scrolled back up to check that there wasn't a #9 on this list.

AND NOW U R LAUGHING at yourself.
ROSA PARKS
もうずいぶん前だけど、アメリカ公民権運動の先駆者であるローザ・パークス氏逝去のニュースで、追悼式の模様が流れていた。スピーチをした一人にOprah Winfreyがいた。アメリカの人気トーク(?)番組「OPRAH」の司会者。様々な人生問題を抱えた一般人がきて、いつもかなりの修羅場を見せている番組(というイメージが強い)。日本でもそういう番組あるけど、スケールがだいぶ違う(笑)。在米中にぼけ~っと見ていたので、懐かしかった。

で、彼女のスピーチから。

I'm here today to say a final thank you, Sister Rosa, for being a great woman who used your life to serve, to server us all. That day that you refused to give up your seat on the bus, you, Sister Rosa, changed the trajectory of my life and the lives of so many other people in the world.

主音声の訳出はこんな感じでした。

最後にありがとうを言うためにここにきました。あなたは、生涯を通じて、私たちの魂のために尽くしてくれた偉大な女性です。バスで席を立つのを拒んだあの日、あなたは私の、そして世界中の多くの人々の人生の道筋をも変えたのです。

trajectory 【名】 軌道、曲線、軌跡

ケネディー上院議員のスピーチも訳出もとても素敵でした。
キリストとパークス氏を照らし合わせたとても宗教的なスピーチで、参列者も感極まって歓声をあげていました。

She too was our shepherd. She restored our soul. She led us in the paths of righteousness. She walked through the valley of the shadow of death but she feared no evil because she knew the Lord was with her. Goodness and mercy followed her all the days of her life. And now -- and now she dwells in the house of the Lord forever. God bless you.

彼女も私たちを導く羊飼いです。私たちの魂を復活させ、正しい道へと導いてくれました。彼女は死の影の谷を歩もうとも、悪魔を恐れはしませんでした。神がともにあられることを知っていたからです。彼女の人生は、常に善と慈悲とに彩られていました。そして、彼女は今、永遠に神の御許にあるのです。神のご加護がありますように。
Great quotes
NHKの「英語でしゃべらナイト」でジョークネタをやっていた。参加者が色々ジョークを披露して世界各国の方々が採点していたのだけれど、最高得点を確保した大島先生のジョークを、釈由美子さんが、理解してなかったのが笑えました(^_^;)。

Advice fo' Livin'
Life ain't about how fast you run, or how high you climb,
but how well you bounce.

Keep skunks and bankers and lawyers at a distance.

Life is simpler when you plow around the stump.

A bumble bee is considerably faster than a John Deere tractor.

Words that soak into your ears are whispered...not yelled.

Meanness don't jest happen overnight.

Forgive your enemies. It messes up their heads.

Do not corner something that you know is meaner than you.

It don't take a very big person to carry a grudge.

You cannot unsay a cruel word.

Every path has a few puddles.

When you wallow with pigs, expect to get dirty.

The best sermons are lived, not preached.

Most of the stuff people worry about ain't never gonna happen anyway.

Don't judge folks by their relatives.

Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.

Live a good, honorable life.
Then when you get older and think back, you'll enjoy it a second time.

Don't interfere with somethin' that ain't botherin' you none.

Timing has a lot to do with the outcome of a rain dance.

The easiest way to eat crow is while it's still warm,
'cause the colder it gets, the harder it is to swaller.

If you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is stop diggin'.

It don't take a genius to spot a goat in a flock of sheep.

Sometimes you get, and sometimes you get got.

The biggest troublemaker you'll probably ever have to deal with
watches you shave his face in the mirror every mornin'.

Always drink upstream from the herd.

Good judgment comes from experience, and a lotta that comes from bad judgment.

Lettin' the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier than puttin' it back in.

If you get to thinkin' you're a person of some influence,
try orderin'somebody else's dog around.
今年ももう残りわずか
早いものでもう12月。
2005年もあと残すところ1ヶ月かぁ。

今期は週1コースにしたので、教材の数も半分。
心に余裕が出来るのは良いのだが、つい油断してしまいまずい。
机の上もぐちゃぐちゃになっていたので、
片付けがてら今期のスケジュールを改めて見直した。

今年の授業はあと3回。そして年末年始休暇に入る。
来年にはいって4回授業がって、そのあとテスト。
うひゃ、結構もう日が無いじゃない。
週1コースは教材量が半分だとはいえ、ペースは遅いみたい。
通訳教材以外にも色々カバーしなくてはいけないことがあるからだけど
以前の先生はかなり厳しくて、試験範囲以外の教材も
ビシバシやる先生だっただけに、余計にそう思うのかも。

ところでこの間の授業の最中、またボールペンのインクがなくなった。
あれ、もう使い切ってしまったか・・・。
常備しているもう一本にすぐ取り替えたけど、
ふと見たら、そっちも無くなりかけてる。ありゃ。

ここ最近特にボールペンの消耗が早い。
メモ取りすぎかなぁ。
もう少し聞くほうに集中したほうがよいかしら。
最近特に英日に行き詰まりを感じているし・・・。
