Class, please turn to page 123.

Is it wrong to do a Meme without being tagged? Eh, I don't care. I saw this over at I Blame the Patriarchy who got it from Second Waver.

Here's what you gotta do:
1. Go to the nearest book in your reach and turn to page 123.
2. Go to the fifth sentence of the book.
3. Copy the next three sentences, then tag someone else.

Since I happened to have just acquired the book, In Her Shoes by Jennifer Weiner, from NPapaya I thought I'd see if anything interesting happened.

Here's the lines I get:

"Fuck you. I'm leaving." Maggie said, throwing down her napkin.
"Sit down," said Rose wearily. "Eat your breakfast. I'm going to the bathroom."

I kinda like that. Short. Simple. To the point. I'm looking forward to reading the rest.

Feel free to tag yourself if you'd like. It's the holidays and I don't want to add stress to anyone's lives by tagging them inconveniently.

....If we say 'divination,' 'physiognomy,' or 'fortune-telling,' however, people are unlikely to accept the terms, because their minds ahave already been taken over by the common idea that these are 'superstitions.' If relatively good results, or accurate predictions, are obtained by use of these methods, people say it was coincidince and do not ask how the 'coincidence' could happen. This is a kind of obstacle preventing the development of learning; it is not an apporopriate attitude for uneathign the treasures of traditional culture.


OH my gawds.... I really wonder why am I reading this f-ing book :) "MAKING OF A MODERN TAOIST WIZARD" It's a bunch of pseudo-mystic crud :)

It lost me at "physiognomy"

This may actually be a good way to judge a book - as opposed to by its cover. If lines 6-8 on page 123 are incomprehensible, don't waste your time.
