I believe that on the first night I went to Gatsby’s house I was one of the few guests who had actually been invited. People were not invited – they just went there. Sometimes they came and went without meeting Gatsby at all. When I arrived, the garden was already full of music and laughter. I tried to look for Gatsby, but nobody knew where he was. Finally I found a familiar face – Jordan Baker, a friend of Daisy’s. She was talking to a group of guests who I didn’t know. ‘Have you been to Gatsby’s parties before?’ Jordan asked the girl beside her. ‘The last one was the one I met you at,’ answered the girl, in a confident voice. ‘When I was here last, I tore my dress on a chair,’ said another girl, ‘and he took my name and address – and I got a package from Croirier’s with a new evening dress in it. It cost two hundred and sixty-five dollars!’ ‘There’s something funny about a guy that’ll do a thing like that,’ said the other girl. ‘He doesn’t want any trouble with ANYbody.’ ‘Who doesn’t?’ I asked. ‘Gatsby. Somebody told me ...’ Everyone leaned forward to listen. ‘Somebody told me they thought he killed a man once.’ ‘Well I heard he was a German spy during the war.’ One of the men nodded. ‘I heard that from a man who grew up with him in Germany,’ he said. We all turned and looked around for Gatsby. But he wasn’t there. After supper Jordan and I went to look for Gatsby inside the house. In the library a fat, middle-aged man, with enormous glasses, was sitting at a huge table, staring at the shelves of books. He was a little drunk. ‘What do you think?’ he asked us, excited. ‘About what?’ He waved his hand at the book-shelves. ‘About that. They’re real.’ ‘The books?’ He nodded. ‘I thought they were just for show. But they have pages and everything.’ WE went back into the garden. The moon was high in tne sky. A famous opera singer sang in italian some actors played a funny scene and then a jazz band started playing. People were dancing now. Champagne was being served in huge glasses and the air was full of conversation and laughter. We sat at a table with a man of about my age and a little girl who giggledevery timesmeone spoke. The man looked at me and smiled. I know your face, he said, politely. Werent yor in the Third Division dyring the war? Why,yes. I was in the Ninth Battalion. I was in the Seventh Infantry. I knew id seen you somewhere before. We talked for a moment about some wet,grey little villages in France. Having a nice time now?’ Jordan asked me. ‘Much better.’ I turned again to my new acquaintance. ‘This is an unusual party for me. I haven’t even seen the host. He sent over his chauffeur with an invitation – and I only live next door!’ For a moment he looked at me as if he didn’t understand. ‘I’m Gatsby,’ he said suddenly. ‘I thought you knew. I’m afraid I’m not a very good host.’ He smiled again. It was a smile that you might come across maybe four or fi ve times in your The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald life – a smile that understood you as you wanted to be understood. It made me trust him immediately. Gatsby left us to answer a phone call from Chicago. I told Jordan that I had expected Gatsby to be different – older, fatter, red-faced. ‘Who is he? Do you know?’ I asked Jordan. ‘He’s just a man named Gatsby ...’ she answered coolly. ‘Where is he from, I mean? And what does he do?’ I asked her again. ‘Well, he told me once he was an Oxford man. I don’t believe it, though.’ There was something very mysterious about Gatsby’s story – how had someone so young appeared from nowhere and bought such a grand house in West Egg? I suddenly noticed Gatsby again – he was standing alone on the steps, smiling at the lively scene below him. Looking at his tidy hair and his smooth, tanned skin it was diffi cult to see anything suspicious about him. A band started playing and people started singing. Girls rested their heads on their partners’ shoulders. But no one rested their head on Gatsby’s shoulder.

In the room where Mr Small. Dr Foam and Mrs Bulmer were talking to the children, there were some really old people. Mr Small went up to one of them. "I see that you're a very old man." he said.
"Yes. I am. I'm 90." the old man replied.
"Could you give the children here some advice about a balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle?" Mr Small asked.
"Sure. Follow my example. Don't smoke, don't drink, don't eat too much sugar or fat and drink lots of water."
At that moment Dr Foam found another old man. who looked older than the first one. He was sitting in a wheelchair, but his eyes were merry and bright.
"How old are you, sir?" Dr Foam asked.
"I'm ninety-five." the man replied.
"Can you tell us why you have lived so long?" Doctor Foam asked.
"It's easy. I always do exercise, and I don't smoke or drink. I spend a lot of time in the open air and I'm a vegetarian." Just then Mrs Bulmer decided to join in the conversation. She saw a very, very old man in the corner of the room. He had no teeth or hair and he couldn't see or hear very well, so she had to come very close to him. The children followed her.
"May 1 ask you a couple of questions, sir," she shouted.
"Yes." the old man whispered.
"Why have you lived so long, sir?" Mrs Bulmer asked.
"I don't know." the man replied.
"Tell us about your lifestyle," Mrs Bulmer continued.
"OK, then. I smoke thirty cigarettes a day and drink a bottle of whisky every day. Sometimes I also have two bottles of beer. I never eat vegetables or fruit and I live on chocolate and cakes."
"How old are you, sir?" Mr Bulmer exclaimed.
"I'm forty." the "old" man replied.

Hobbies differ like tastes. If you have chosen a hobby according to your character and taste you are lucky because your life becomes more interesting.
Hobbies are divided into four large classes: doing things, making things, collecting things, and learning things. The most popular of all hobby groups is doing things. It includes a wide variety of activities, everything from gardening to travelling and from chess to volleyball.
Gardening is one of the oldest of man's hobbies. It's a well-known fact that the English are very fond of gardening and growing flowers, especially roses.
Both grown-ups and children are fond of playing different computer games. This is a relatively new hobby but it's becoming more and more popular. Making things includes drawing, painting, making sculpture, designing costumes, handicrafts. Two of the most famous hobby painters were President Eisenhower and Sir Winston Churchill.
Some hobbyists write music or play musical instruments. Almost everyone collects something at some period in his life: stamps, coins, matchboxes, books, records, postcards, toys, watches. Some collections have no real value. Others become so large and so valuable that they are housed in museums and galleries. Many world-famous collections started in a small way with one or two items. People with a good deal of money often collect paintings, rare books and other art objects. Often such private collections are given to museums, libraries and public galleries so that others might take pleasure in seeing them.
No matter what kind of hobby a person has, he always has the opportunity of learning from it. By reading about the things he is interested in, he is adding to what he knows. Learning things can be the most exciting aspect of a hobby.
What on earth is a zorb? To put it simply, a zorb is a large inflatable
ball that you climb into and stay inside while you roll down a hill.
are two different types of zorbs: the dry zorb and the wet zorb. When
you ride in the dry zorb, you are securely strapped in and then rolled
over the top of the hill. From this point on, you are the passenger on a
very exciting ride, rolling and bouncing all the way down the hill!
wet zorb, however, is a totally different type of ride to the dry one.
In the wet zorb, you are not strapped in and are instead encouraged to
stand up and run like a hamster in its wheel. The challenge is to remain
upright all the way to the bottom of the hill. This may sound easy, so
to make it a little harder, try it with some warm soapy water inside. As
soon as the zorb goes over the top of the hill, you’ll be all over the
place. You’ll feel as if you were in a washing machine!
The dry zorb is a lot of fun and is definitely worth trying, but the wet zorb is the best!

Это был вечер, которым менеджеры Оперы давали последнее праздничное представление, чтобы отметить их уход на пенсию. Внезапно в раздевалку Сорелли, одной из прим-балерин, вторглась полдюжины молодых особ из балета, кто подошел со сцены. Они ворвались среди большого беспорядка, некоторые неестественно смеялись, другие, кричали в ужасе. Сорелли, которая хотела побыть одна на мгновение, чтобы произнести речь, которую она собиралась сделать уходящим в отставку менеджерам, оглянулась сердито на безумную толпу. Это была маленькая Jammes - девочка со вздернутым носом, глазами незабудки, красными как роза щеками и белой шеей - которая объяснила дрожащим голосом:
