THAT FIGURES... I was double-tagged for a meme by Sam and Poet With a Day Job. In this meme, you pick up the work of fiction closest to you that has 123 pages or more, turn to page 123, find the fifth sentence, then post it and the next three sentences. Since I have a zillion books of fiction around my desk, I just closed my eyes and let my hand fall on a random book.

His full-length mirror had a shower curtain on a bar in front of it. Gumb used the dishmop to tuck his penis and testicles back between his legs. He whipped the shower curtain aside and stood before the mirror, hitting a hipshot pose despite the grinding it caused in is private parts. "Do something for me, honey, do something for me SOON."

--from Silence of the Lambs, Thomas Harris

I'm tagging: Kate, Dustin, Montgomery and Bookfraud

What is this meme supposed to do? Mind you, I don't question much along these lines. I accept dada art and the twelve-tone scale and Britney Spears.

But I fear I'm missing something integral here.

Is why I ask.

Bookfraud...of course you put it on your blog. That's what it's for.

Button...It's supposed to unlock the secrets of the universe. Hell, don't ask me. I didn't dream this thing up. I'm just following orders. lol

Okay, Collin, I'm going to do mine. PWADJ tagged me, too.
I like the excerpt you have here. Tee-heee.

Ooooooh. Now I see! Thanks!

I don't care for it though. I think it's dumb. Why page 123? I mean, is it supposed to show everyone what you're reading? If that's the point, you can just say, since a few sentences doesn't really show much.

Ergo, instead of just complaining, I'm coming up with something BETTER! Stay tuned.
