Oh noes! Book meme!

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 on your LJ 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.
6. Tag five people.

Nearest book was a Latin dictionary, but this was underneath it. Page 123 was too short (end of chapter) so I took the next page with enough sentences on it. My flist knows this book.

Thursday the weather got worse. It was spitting snow when I got to work, and by lunch it was a full-blown blizzard. Flip had managed to break both copy machines, so I gathered up my flagpole-sitting clippings to be copied at Kinko's, but as I walked out to my car I decided they could wait, and I scuttled back to the building, my head down against the snow.

If you're reading this and you haven't done it yet, consider yourself tagged!

Bellwether! Connie Willis! *dance*

Have you read her latest? (Inside Job, I think it's called.) I haven't, and it concerns me that no one has thwapped me for that, though it's been out for a year.
Yay for Connie Willis! My copy was in the little pile of books by the couch because it just came back from a friend to whom I had lent it. I love lending that book out.

I haven't read Inside Job yet. Was waiting for paperback, yet I don't think it's going to arrive in pb. It's a novella published in a special edition, pretty much. We might have to wait until she emits another short story collection.
