最近都没怎么翻译啊= =今天先发一点点等我考完了再来翻多一点……


I stammered some reply - even now I'm not sure what it was. I was bewildered by the offer. It had a spur-of-the-moment sound, but there was nothing spur-of-tbe-moment about his eyes, blue Anglo-Saxon ice under the bushy white whorls of his eyebrows. And if I don't remember exactly how I replied, it was because I felt suddenly sure that this offer -vague and puzzling as it was - had been exactly the specific I had kept expecting him to get down to.

我结结巴巴地回了几句话——现在我都不清楚我到底说了啥。我被他的邀请给搞糊涂了。听上去像是他一时兴起说的,但他的眼神、他那白色浓眉下如同冰晶一般的蓝色盎格鲁撒克逊眼珠里透出的光芒完全看不出是临时起意的样子。而且如果说我不记得我究竟是怎么回答的,那是因为我突然确信这个邀请——尽管含混不清,叫人摸不着头脑——就是我一直在等着他接下来说到的正题。
Ellen's reaction that evening was one of amused exasperation. I had been with Waterhouse, Garden, Lawton, Frasier, and Effingham for something like twenty years, and it was clear enough that I could not expect to rise much above the mid-level position I now held; it was her idea that this was the firm's cost-efficient substitute for a gold watch.
爱莲(名字翻译我改了一下更像个女性的名字了)那天晚上的反应是又好气又好笑。我和怀特豪斯他们(省略若干名字)共事大概有二十年了,而很明显我不可能升到比我现在的中等职位更高的位置;她觉得这是事务所用来代替发金表的省钱手段。
'Old men telling war stories and playing poker,' she said. 'A night of that and you're supposed to be happy in the Research Library until they pension you off, I suppose ... oh, I put two Becks' on ice for you.' And she kissed me warmly. I suppose she had seen something on my face - God knows she's good at reading me after all the years we've spent together.

‘一群老头子讲讲战争故事玩玩扑克,’她说,‘就一个类似这样的晚上,然后他们就觉得你会乐于搞搞学术研究,直到他们用养老金把你打发走,我猜…噢,我给你冰了两瓶贝克啤酒。’她亲热地吻了我一下。我看她是从我的脸上看出什么来了——上帝知道,一起过了这么多年,她已经很擅长读我的心事了。
