page 123

Usually, I don't entertain these kind of things. In fact, I'd rather wash my Q-tips than masturbate with chain-mail games. But I just saw this one and it was too easy to ignore.

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 3 sentences.
5. Don't you dare dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in your closet!

Without getting up or moving more than a few wrist muscles, there are three books near me:

1)Tales of the Tartan Army (Ian Black):

"'Masticating?' said John. 'Are you sure you're pronouncing that right?' Ramon was at the hotel bar and he noticed when, unprompted, The Heart came up and gave us back our money."

2)Please Kill Me - the uncensored oral history of punk- (Legs McNeil and Gillian McCain):

"'What is it, Patti?' 'It's Bobby's birthday.' 'Bobby who?' 'Bobby Dylan.'

3)Mini Political Atlas of the World (AND cartographic publishers):

"Ribeirao Preto. Niteroi. Sao Paulo."

Well, that was fun. But, I'll bet you my new driver's license and back-up ramen supply that all the other sentences on all the other pages, put together, are far more interesting.
