Meme-y goodness.

RNW was too tired after her post to tag anyone, but in the interest of forcing myself to post something, I'm going to pretend she tagged me.

Book Meme Rules:

1. Pick up the nearest book (of at least 123 pages).
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people.

Amazingly enough, I've been caught on a day when I've just cleaned the house and actually put everything I'm not actively using away. I actually don't have much in the way of book clutter right now, it's all neatly on the shelf in the living room or stacked on my bedside table. Right now, I'm at the breakfast table, and the closet book to me is a cookbook called "Complete Comfort Food." Page 123 is just a giant, delicious-looking photo of chicken fajitas with all the fixings.

The next closest "book" is my husband's 720-page "Cheaper Than Dirt" shooting accessories catalog. From page 123:
"Designed with a pleasant oder (sic), this gun treatment is assured perfect firing from -50 F below (sic) to 350 F. This is the single and best (sic) gun care maintenance product ever designed to solve a gun owner's cleaning, lubricating and corrosion potection problems. A unique formulation of active lubricants will not freeze, oxidize or evaporate."
Clearly, proofreading is not a priority at Cheaper Than Dirt. Perhaps the expense of employing a decent editor would force the brand to raise prices, thus destroying the brand name forever.

The closest book to me related to the topic of this blog is The Essential Pope Benedict. It's on the shelf in the living room. I'm not going to post excerpts right now -- go buy it and read it for yourself, it's awesome.

I have baby brain to the extreme right now ... I forgot to tag five people! I'll have to edit.

Thanks for stopping by ... one of my Lenten resolutions is to pick up the blogging again!
