今日短语:瞎忙活 Chasing your tail

2015-06-15    来源:BBC英伦网    【      美国外教 在线口语培训

瞎忙活
Chasing your tail

【今日短语】

短语 chasing your tail 的意思就是从早到晚忙个不停,但没有太多收获,就是我们常说的瞎忙活或无谓瞎忙。

【例句】

1. I've been chasing my tail all day, but I haven't got anything done! What a waste of a day!

2. Organising a meeting for next week has been impossible. I've been chasing my tail trying to sort out a date, venue and agenda... I'll try again tomorrow!

类似表达:短语 to run around like a headless chicken 的意思是投入大量精力去做很多事情,但是没有任何真正的收益,如汉语里常说的“像无头苍蝇到处乱撞”。

【例句】

1. I've been running around like a headless chicken all day trying to get ready for my holiday, but it's already 7.30pm and I've still got loads to do!

【今日小常识】

A southern right whale's head measures one third of its total length. It is easy to identify, as the enormous head is covered in white-coloured outgrowths of tough skin. They are only found in the oceans of the southern hemisphere.

一条南露脊鲸的头部长为其整个身体的三分之一。这类鲸鱼非常容易识别,因为巨大的头部被一堆白色的硬糙皮覆盖。人们只能在南半球的海洋里看到南露脊鲸。
