pick up the nearest book...

I've been tagged by Barbara from Nova Scotia for a meme similar to one that I did last year, but it's a good one! So, here goes:

Pick up the nearest book.
Open on page 123.
Find the fifth sentence.
Post the next three sentences.
Tag five people, and acknowledge who tagged you.

Since I'm at work (shhhhhh), I picked up the next book to be cataloged: The Case of the Bizarre Bouquets by Nancy Springer.

  • I would simply rest here until daybreak. But even as I thought it, in the street far below a sergeantly voice bawled, "Wheel it around this side! Over 'ere. 'Ow do you work the fool thing?"
I don't think I'll tag anyone but I'd love it if someone tagged herself and let me know. (Ahem, black-and-white cold-weather-bird-girl...)

You just provided me with a possible evening read for my son, who's 9. Thanks.

But who are you talking about? Anyway, I'll do this one, too. But I'm only near the dictionary - let me go sit somewhere else...

I'm talking to you!
And you!
(And you)

Not me. This time. But yes! I believe a certain black and white cold weather girl is about to get tagged by me too. If I ever post again.

Hey that does sound like a good read.

What a cool job you have!

I started school on Monday.
I love one of the courses but dislike the instructor so far but it is early so I am hoping my feelings change for the better.

Hmmm... I couldn't help but think it was me!

I'll participate herein:

Damn those veggie burritos. Anyway, yes, I know that it is a stupid, stupid TV show full of cardboard cutout characters and poorly acted "plots." No matter.
