Book meme thingy, innit

Matt has tagged me with a meme:

  1. Pick up the nearest book
  2. Open to page 123
  3. Find the fifth sentence
  4. Post the next three sentences
  5. Tag five people and acknowledge who tagged you

This presents something of a problem. The nearest book, which I’ve been avidly reading, doesn’t have 123 pages. Nor does it have all that many sentences per page. Here’s the best extract I can manage:

See Spot run. Run, Spot, run. Run, run, run.

The near-Dostoevskian desperation permeating this passage almost overwhelms me. I can’t wait to see how all the subplots will be woven together at the end. But that’s enough for one day.

I’ll tag: Liam, Scribbles, Paul, Bill and, er, David Miliband. Well, you never know.

"See Jane. See Dick. See Dick love Jane..."

quoting from 'My first porn' ;-)

Excellent choice.

"See Dick love Jane..."

Surely that should be the other way round?

Ahh, the phallical jokes are unleashed.

Way to embrace female sexuality, Matt.

No reply from David Miliband? This hurts me much more than it hurts you.

Oh well, I still think his blog is a cute, unsuccessful concept.
