Blogs and Blogging...
This is from Sarabeth's blog:
1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next four sentences on your blog, along with these instructions.
5. Don't you dare dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest!
(Quoted from I once was HP)
The nearest book for me was Roget's Thesaurus, and it has no sentences on page 123, so I've disqualified it.
The second nearest book was Huckleberry Finn. I'm not reading it, but I guess Isaac must be.
"I ain't undisposed. What's your line -- mainly?"
"Jour printer, by trade; do a little in patent medicines; theatre-actor -- tragedy, you know; take a turn at mesmerism and phrenology when there's a chance; teach singing; geography school for a change; sling a lecture, sometimes -- oh I do lots of things -- most anything that comes handy, so it ain't work. What's your lay?"
(Four sentences from page 123 of a paperback edition of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain)
This was entertaining to do. What's your nearest book?
