The Nearest Book Meme November 3, 2006

Filed under: books,memememe — Diana @ 10:24 am

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!

Here’s Mine:

Negative-one:  they’ve been watching your programs all night.  Zero:  whose idea was it to stock the pool with carp for the labor day potlatch.  First of all, I don’t beleive in the star system or nepotism and I’ve seen political patronage first-hand, having lived in Jersey City.  Second of all, a potato-dumpling-riding show is a crystal meth image and not something to mention when I’m calling home.
