「我離港前到過一間精神科醫院。當時有位病人禮貌地問,一個以作為世上最悠久民主政體而自傲的國家,如何能夠將此地交給一個政治制度非常不同的國家,且既沒諮詢當地公民,又沒給予他們民主的前景,好讓他們捍衞自己的將來。一個隨行同事說,奇怪,香港提出最理智問題的人,竟在精神科醫院。」彭定康 金融時報

“During a visit to a mental hospital before I left Hong Kong, a patient politely asked me how a country that prided itself on being the oldest democracy in the world had come to be handing over his city to another country with a very different system of government, without either consulting the citizens or giving them the prospect of democracy to safeguard their future. Strange, said one of my aides, that the man with the sanest question in Hong Kong is in a mental hospital.”Chris Patten Financial Times

又是 土撥鼠日

又是 土撥鼠日




每年一度的北美天氣預測專家,Punxsutawney 的土撥鼠 Phil,在Groundhog Day 土撥鼠日即每年的二月二日, 土撥鼠Phil 會告訴大家,北美洲會有個早來的溫暖春天,還是繼續多六個星期的風雪,嚴寒冬季。

維基百科 土撥鼠日


時間過得真快,明天就是2008年2月2日,土撥鼠日,舊年寫的電影介紹 Ground Hog Day 土撥鼠日

Feb. 2﹐ 2007 NEWs reported that Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow, so an earlier Spring is being expected, but how true ??? In traditional weather lore, if a groundhog emerges from its burrow on this day and fails to see its shadow because the weather is cloudy, winter will soon end. If the groundhog sees its shadow because the weather is bright and clear, it will be frightened and run back into its hole, and the winter will continue for six more weeks.



Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania 每年二月二日﹐都舉辦土撥鼠日Ground Hog Day 慶典﹐這個傳說被拍成一部電影﹐ Groundhog Day (1993) 港譯: 偷天情緣。




Starring:

Bill Murray as Phil Connors

Andie MacDowell as Rita



Directed by:
Harold Ramis





故事說:

電視臺的天氣報導員Phil Connors﹐是一個口臭的人﹐得罪人多﹐稱呼人少﹐不受同事歡迎。就在每年一度的土撥鼠日Ground Hog Day﹐電視臺派 Phil﹐編導 Rita﹐和攝影師 Lary 到
Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania ﹐現場報導。 但報導完畢回程時遇到大風雪﹐被逼返回 Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania 過一晚夜。




一覺醒來 Phil 發覺﹐原來時間重返到已經過去的昨天早晨﹐他要重複報導土撥鼠Punxsutawney Phil 所作的預測﹐完畢後回程時又遇到大風雪﹐被逼返回Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania 又過一晚夜﹐但只有他記得起這事情曾經發生過。








如此 Phil 每天睡醒都重回到FEB 2﹐ 二月二號的早晨﹐重複再重複﹐重複再重複﹐每天一樣的報導﹐重複回程時遇到大風雪﹐被逼返回
Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania 過一晚夜﹐ 但只有他記得起這事情曾經發生過。


起初 Phil 發覺很有趣﹐因為只有他有過去天昨發生過的記憶﹐他就可以作弄其他人﹐但天天如是﹐重複再重複﹐重複再重複﹐有趣的變成沒趣了。怎樣才能離開呢? 但總是被風雪逼著回到﹐Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania 過一晚夜。Phil 自殺了﹐但當時間一到他又重頭開始同一天﹐重複再重複﹐重複再重複。




最後Phil 發覺﹐他可以用他的記憶去幫助他人﹐他較好時間﹐在指定時間﹐去指定地點﹐去幫人﹐去救人﹐並且他學會了關心別人﹐他改變了他的臭口﹐他甚至由不懂彈鋼琴﹐他利用重複的每一天去跟老師學﹐在土撥鼠日Ground Hog Day 慶典彈奏一曲﹐並獲得 Rita 對他另眼相看﹐和他結為情侶﹐ 渡過一個甜蜜的晚上。





第二天Phil 起床﹐開始又重複的一天﹐但他發覺今天不同了﹐那個魔咒消失了﹐他和 Rita 同時踏進新的一天﹐二月三日﹐Phil 帶著 Rita 離開
Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania







故事很簡單﹐但點出其實我們一班打工仔﹐每天上班下班﹐也是過著十分黑板的生活﹐每天做差不多相同的事情﹐如果不是天天爆大鑊﹐返工是重複再重複做同一般的事情。


如果你對刻板的工作﹐開始厭倦﹐希望讀完我這篇短文後﹐可以在工作中尋找生活的趣味﹐還可以在工餘攪攪新意思﹐攪攪新玩意﹐讓刻板的生活添加一點色彩。



我從眾多博友部落s﹐讀到不少生活的趣味﹐在工餘攪攪新意思﹐攪攪新玩意﹐讓黑板的生活加一點色彩。眾多博友在工餘﹐有參加樂團攪攪音樂﹐有人學書法﹐也有人當義工﹐ 去幫助有需要的人﹐還有不少是利用工餘﹐去進修自我增值的。

而這一年來,我自己卻把寫網誌,成為我的 Hobby, 而且中毒頗深! 仲開埋 Chatbox 聊天室,繼續吹水!


Latest News: U.S., Canadian groundhogs disagree
Nova Scotia's furry prognosticator doesn't see his shadow, while Pennsylvania's does

Neither Ontario's Wiarton Willie nor Nova Scotia's Shubenacadie Sam saw their shadows when roused by their handlers this morning, paving the way for an early spring

However, it seems the country's revered rodents did not confer with their counterpart across the border before making their predictions, as Pennsylvania's Punxsutawney Phil indicated to thousands gathered at Gobbler's Knob to hunker down for six more weeks of chilly temperatures.
