A fun meme (for a change)
From Maureen: "In lieu of an actual post, I stole this meme from Miss Snark's Blog this morning. 1. Grab the nearest book. 2. Open the book to page 123. 3. Find the fifth sentence. 4. Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions. 5. Don’t search around and look for the “coolest” book you can find. Do what’s actually next to you." I'm having Jake read The Golden Compass, and it really is right next to me. Here's the sentence: But her mind was on John Faa and the parley room, and before long she slipped away up the cobbles again to the Zaal. Beneath that book, I have Jorge Luis Borges Collected Fictions. Page 123 puts us smack dab inside "The Garden of Forking Paths," one of my favorite fantasy short stories. Sentence five: That was why unconsciously I had fully given myself over to it. Fun and easy. I'd do Strunk and White, too, but there's no page 123. I tag the first five people who read this post ;o) D.
