Proving a Point

Mamacita tagged me a while back and I thought I'd use this opportunity to show you all that I do not limit my reading to blogs and Us Weekly. So here it is.

1. Pick up the nearest book ( of at least 123 pages).
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.

4. Post the next three sentences.

5. Tag five people. & post a comment here once you post it to your blog, so I can come see.

My book is The Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett:

"Then on holy days, when people come from all over the country to hear the services in the cathedral, we gather farthings galore."

"It seems to me we might man the bridge on holy days only and give you a fire out of the proceeds," said Philip.

Paul looked anxious.

What do you think about that? The book is 973 pages long and I'm on page 796! That's right, bitches! And I'm not tagging anyone else because I'm a badass mothereffer.

Now, lest this post get too scholarly, I ask you to view this video, but for the love of God, DO NOT watch it in front of your kids, your boss, or the Pope. I swear, my stomach hurt from laughing so hard.

Thanks to Sundry Morning for turning me on to this sweet little gem.

"Maybe," Hugh says, "they're inside your tower of meat."
This is what we have been reduced to. Hugh blows the yucca pollen off his blackened shrimp while I push back the sleeves of my borrowed sport coat and search the meat tower for my promised potatoes.

(From "Me Talk Pretty One Day" by
David Sedaris. I had to play too.)

Oh, one of my very favorite books of all time. I struggled for air through most of the chapter about his little brother Paul--so funny.
