Much Delayed "Really Good Meme"
- Open the nearest book to page 123
- Post sentences 6, 7, and 8 from that page
- Tag five others
But my sheepskin announces to all assembled that though I may be a man of the people, I also have the keys to the clubhouse. I can't count the number of times I've heard the phrase, "You went to Dartmouth? I find that hard to believe."
Okay, so I kind of cheated and included two quoted sentences as one sentence.
The other book nearby is Great Christian Thinkers: A Beginner's Guide To Over 70 Leading Theologians Through the Ages by Colin Blakely:
He was born in Northumberland in 1502 (we think) and went from there to study classics at Cambridge. But he continued his studies at the Sorbonne in Paris and at Louvain, and it is likely that he came face-to-face here with all the Reforming ideas that were prevalent on the European continent. This was, after all, at the height of Luther's protests.
And, just for good measure, I'll also answer this meme on Christy's behalf. Her nearby book is Before You Leap: A Frog's-Eye View of Life's Greatest Lessons allegedly by Kermit the Frog. (And why not?). Since page 123 is a page between chapters, she'll do 122. Here goes:
And when I've successfully visualized this perfect frog, I send him out to deal with the problem. And when that doesn't work, at least I have someone to commiserate and share popcorn with during the debacle. When all else fails, give them stuff.
Who to tag? Jeff tagged most of my readership, and Mike tagged much of the rest. Not sure if I can think of 5 people to tag. But here goes: Monica, Kenny, my ever-positive sister Ronda, and (at this point I'm going to have to go with a friend-of-a-friend) Andy (that's, right punk! I'm making you update your blog from your nearly year-long hibernation!), and - since he's already done this once on Jeff's blog - Kenny's friend Dave. Incidentally, Kenny says I remind him of Dave and vice versa. Can't say exactly how, but it's clearly not our politics.
I'm thinking of inventing my own meme. It's called the "Love of Nouns" meme. Remind me and I'll explain later. Unless I don't. If you'll remember, I began this blog with the promise of inconsistency.
