楼主按:本来以为很容易就翻的很好,试了才知道也是力气活

下午10点

难以相信我为此承受的折磨。我开了两个小时的车后,把车停在Alconbury的房子前;一边担心我穿的这身兔女郎装束是否合适,一边绕过房子到花园去,这时已经能听到那里的欢笑声了。当我开始穿过草地时,他们全都静下来。我恐惧的发现并不是一帮牧师和妓女,而是穿着休闲的、下摆到小腿的两件套的女人和穿着便装和V字领的男人们。我站在那里,一下呆住了……活脱脱就像一只小兔子。当每个人都吃惊的看着我时,Una Alconbury端着装满小块的苹果和叶子的玻璃杯,穿过长着藤类植物的草地走过来。
“Bridget!!见到你太高兴了。 先尝尝这个吧。”她说。
“我以为是牧师和妓女派对,”我嘟囔着说。
“噢,亲爱的,难道Geoff没有给你打电话吗?”她说。我真是不能相信自己的耳朵。我是说,她以为我通常就是穿的像个兔女郎还是什么?
“Geoff,难道你没有给Bridget打电话吗?”她又四处看看,对我说,“我们都很想见到你的男朋友,他人呢?”
“他必须回去工作,”我嘟囔着说。
“我的小Bridget怎样啊?”Geoffrey叔叔东倒西歪的走过来,嬉笑着说。
“Geoffrey,”Una冷冷的说。
“是,是。所有的人都到齐了,一点没出错,请指示,上校,”他说,敬了个礼,然后就倒在她肩上咯咯的笑,“一定是那个电话留言出错了。”

“Geoffrey,去看看烧烤怎样了,”Una有些生气地对Geoffrey说;接着抱歉的对我说,“对不起,亲爱的,你知道,这里的牧师们出了那些丑闻后,我们认为不应该再办牧师和妓女的派对了,因为……”她笑起来,“因为每个人都认为牧师就是荡妇,呵呵。”
“噢,亲爱的,”她擦着她的眼睛接着说,“不管怎样,这个新的小伙子怎么样?他在周六作什么工作?嗨,这可不是个好借口,不是吗?按这个进度我们怎么能让你结婚呢?”
“按这个进度,我的结果是作个应召女郎,”我一边嘟囔着,一边试着把屁股上的小兔尾巴卸下来。
我能感到有人的目光在盯着我。抬头见Mark Darcy在盯着小兔尾巴。在他旁边是高高瘦瘦的、动人的顶尖家庭法律师,穿着矜持的淡紫色裙子和外套,头上顶着太阳镜,就像Jackie O.。
这个得意的巫婆对着Mark傻笑,并很不礼貌的、放肆的上下打量我。“你是不是刚从别的派对来的?”她边说,边笑得喘不过气来。
“嗨,亲爱的,别停,开拍。”我妈妈颤着声说,穿着明亮的绿松石褶纹的套裙,挥动着一个带铃的板子,匆匆向我们这边来。“亲爱的,你怎么穿成这样啊?你看着就像个妓女。拜托,都别出声……”她冲挥动着摄像机的Julio喊,“开拍”。

这一下提醒了我,我飞快地环顾四周寻找我的爸爸,但是看不到他。我看见Mark Darcy在和Una说话,并向我的方向指指点点。接着,Una就往这边望,然后匆匆的过来对我说,“Birdget,关于服装的事真是抱歉,Mark刚才跟我说,这么多年长的男人也在这里你一定感到极不舒服。你想借件衣服吗?”
派对剩下的时间里我就穿着我的吊带装,外面套着一个Janine的、花花绿绿的、Laura Ashleyban牌泡泡袖伴娘裙,听着Mark Darcy的Natasha的傻笑,看着我妈妈周期性的冲来冲去,“这件衣服很漂亮,亲爱的。停!”
“我对那个女朋友印象不好,你呢?”Una Alconbury一单独和我在一起就一边冲Natasha的方向点头示意,一边大声地说,“像足了一个小女人。Elaine认为她迫不及待的想插一脚。噢,嗨,Mark!再来一杯皮姆吗?Bridget不能带她男朋友来多让人扫兴啊。他运气真好,不是吗?”这些话都很有进攻性,好像Una认为Mark选的女朋友,一不是我,二不是Una在咖喱火鸡餐会介绍给他的女孩,对她是一种冒犯。“他叫什么,Bridget?Daniel,是吗?Pams说他是一个数一数二的年轻出版商。”
“Daniel Cleaver?”Mark Darcy说。
“是的,就是他,”我故意翘起下巴说。
“他是你的朋友吗?”Una问。
“绝对不是,”他斩钉截铁的回答。
“噢。我希望他能配上我们的小Birdget,”Una接着说,一边冲着我眨眼睛,好像这是件很让人快乐的事儿。
“我想我绝对有把握再说一次,根本配不上!”Mark说。

10 p.m. Cannot believe what I have been through. I drove for two hours, parked at the front of the Alconburys' and, hoping I looked OK in the bunny girl outfit, walked round the side to the garden where I could hear voices raised in merriment. As I started to cross the lawn they all went quiet, and I realized to my horror that instead of Tarts and Vicars, the ladies were in Country Casualsstyle calf-length floral two-pieces and the men were in slacks and V-necked sweaters. I stood there, frozen, like, well, a rabbit. Then while everyone stared, Una Alconbury came flapping
across the lawn in pleated fuchsia holding out a plastic tumbler full of bits of apple and leaves
'Bridget!! Super to see you. Have a Pimms.' she said.
'I thought it was supposed to be a Tarts and Vicars party,' I hissed.
'Oh dear, didn't Geoff call you?' she said. I couldn't believe this. I mean, did she think I dressed as a bunny girl normally or something? 'Geoff,' she said. 'Didn't you telephone Bridget? We're all looking forward to meeting your new boyfriend,' she sajd, looking around. 'Where is he?'
'He had to work,' I muttered.
'How's-my-little-Bridget?' said Uncle Geoffrey, lurching over, pissed.
'Geoffrey,' said Una coldly.
'Yup, Yup. All present and correct, orders obeyed, Lieutenant,' he said, saluting, then collapsing on to her shoulder giggling. 'But it was one of those ruddy answerphone thingummajigs.'
'Geoffrey,' hissed Una. 'Go-and-see-to-the-barbecue. I'm sorry, darling, you see we decided after all the scandals there've been with vicars around here there'd be no point having a Tarts and Vicars party because . . . ' she started to laugh, ' . . . because everyone thought vicars were tarts anyway.
Oh dear,' she said, wiping her eyes. 'Anyway, how's this new chap, then? What's he doing workingon a Saturday? Durrr! That's not a very good excuse, is it? How are we going to get you married off at this rate?'
'At this rate I'm going to end up as a call girl,' I muttered, trying to unpin the bunny tail from my bottom.
I could feel someone's eyes on me and looked up to see Mark Darcy staring fixedly at the bunny tail. Beside him was the tall thin glamorous top family-law barrister clad in a demure lilac dress and coat like Jackie O. with sunglasses on her head.
The smug witch smirked at Mark and blatantly looked me up and down in a most impolite
manner. 'Have you come from another party?' she breathed.
'Actually, I'm just on my way to work,' I said, at which Mark Darcy half smiled and looked away.
'Hello, darling, can't stop. Shooting.' trilled my mother, hurrying towards us in a bright turquoise pleated shirtwaister, waving a clapper board. 'What on earth do you think you're wearing darling? You look like a common prostitute. Absolute quiet, please, everyone, aaaaand . . . ' she yelled in the direction of Julio, who was brandishing a video camera, 'action!'
In alarm I quickly looked round for Dad but couldn't see him anywhere. I saw Mark Darcy talking to Una and gesturing in my direction then Una, looking purposeful, hurried across to me.
'Bridget, I am so sorry about the mix-up over the fancy dress,' she said. 'Mark was just saying you must feel dreadfully uncomfortable with all these older chaps around. Would you like to borrow something?'
I spent the rest of the party wearing, over my suspender outfit, a puff-sleeved, floral-sprig Laura Ashley bridesmaid dress of Janine's with Mark Darcy's Natasha smirking and my mother periodically rushing past going, 'That's a pretty dress, darling. Cut!'
'I don't think much of the girlfriend, do you? said Una Alconbury loudly, nodding in Natasha's direction as soon as she got me alone. 'Very much the Little Madam. Elaine thinks she's desperate to get her feet under the table. Oh, hello, Mark! Another glass of Pimms? What a shame Bridget couldn't bring her boyfriend. He's a lucky chap, isn't he?' All this was said very aggressively as if Una was taking as a personal insult the fact that Mark had chosen a girlfriend who was a) not me and b) had not been introduced to him by Una at a turkey curry buffet. 'What's his name, Bridget?
Daniel, is it? Pam says he's one of these sooper-dooper young publishers.
'Daniel Cleaver?' said Mark Darcy.
'Yes, it is, actually,' I said, jutting my chin out.
'Is he a friend of yours, Mark?' said Una.
'Absolutely not,' he said, abruptly.
'Oooh. I hope he's good enough for our little Bridget,' Una pressed on, winking at me as if this
was all hilarious fun instead of hideous.
'I think I could say again, with total confidence, absolutely not,' said Mark.

楼主按:接上文,至此把那个派对部分翻译完了。

“哦,等等,Audrey在那里。Audrey!”Una说,不再听我们说什么,跌跌撞撞的走开了,谢天谢地。
“我想你认为这么回答很聪明,”等Una走后,我生气地说。
“什么?”Mark说,看起来吃了一惊。
“你难道在‘什么’我吗?”我低声恼火的说。
“你听起来很像我妈,”他说。
“我想你认为完全出于嫉妒的对他们父母的朋友,在他们不在场时,贬低他们的男朋友是对的。”我口气激烈的说。
他瞪着我,好像想到了其他的事情。“对不起,”他说,“我只是想弄明白你的意思。我……?你意思是因为你我嫉妒Daniel Cleaver?”
“不,当然不是因为我,”我恼火的说,因为我也认识到听起来就像是那个意思。“我只是说你一定除了恶意之外还有其他理由才让你对我男朋友这么坏。”
“Mark,亲爱的,”Natasha柔声说,很优美的从草地中穿过来。她那么高、那么瘦,根本不需要穿高跟鞋,所以她轻快的走过来而不会把鞋跟陷进草地里。就像沙漠上的骆驼那样天造地设一般。“过来告诉你妈妈我们在肯润看到的餐厅家具。”
“只是照顾好你自己,我就是这个意思,”他轻轻地说,“我也想告诉你妈妈小心自己,”他边被Natasha拖着走开,边冲Julio的方向示意说。
担心我再遇上什么使我不能体面地离开,45分钟后,我借口工作向Una告别。“你们这些事业型女孩!不能再拖了:卡塔卡塔,”她说。我必须要在车内抽5分钟的烟才能平静的离开。就在我回到主路上时,我爸爸的车开过。坐在他旁边的是Penny Husbands—Bosworth,穿着红花边的巴斯克式紧身女上衣,戴着两个兔耳朵。
回到伦敦,离开马路,我感觉发抖,也觉得回来的太早,因此,我想,先不回家,到Daniel那里寻找点安慰去。

原文:
'Oh, hang on a tick, there's Audrey. Audreyl' said Una, not listening, and tripping off, thank God.
'I suppose you think that's clever,' I said furiously, when she'd gone.
'What?' said Mark, looking surprised.
'Don't you "What?" me, Mark Darcy,' I muttered.
'You sound just like my mother,' he said.
'I suppose you think its all right to slag people's boyfriends off to their parents' friends behind their back when they're not even there for no reason just because you're jealous,' I flailed.
He stared at me, as if distracted by something else. 'Sorry,' he said. 'I was just trying to figure out what you mean. Have I . . .? Are you suggesting that I am jealous of Daniel Cleaver? Over you?'
'No, not over me,' I said, furious because I realized it did sound like that. 'I was just assuming you must have some reason to be so horrible about my boyfriend other than pure malevolence.'
'Mark, darling,' cooed Natasha, tripping prettily across the lawn to join us. She was so tall and thin she hadn't felt the need to put heels on, so could walk easily across the lawn without sinking, as if designed for it, like a camel in the desert. 'Come and tell your mother about the dining furniture we saw in Conran.'
'Just take care of yourself, that's all, he said quietly, 'and I'd tell your mum to watch out for herself too,' he said, nodding pointedly in the direction of Julio as Natasha dragged him off.
After 45 minutes more horror I thought I could decently leave, pleading work to Una.
'You career girls! Can't put it off forever you know: tick-tock-tick-tock,' she said.
I had to have a cigarette in the car for five minutes before I was calm enough to set off. Then just as I got back to the main road my dad's car drove past. Sitting next to him in the front seat was Penny Husbands-Bosworth, wearing a red lace underwired uplift basque, and two bunny ears.
By the time I got back to London and off the motorway I was feeling pretty shaky and back much earlier than I expected, so I thought, instead of going straight home, I'd go round to Daniel's for a bit of reassurance.
