MeMe Time!!!

I've been tagged by my new best Texan friend Rhea! Bless her! xx


The rules:

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


Right... I don't even bloody read books... so I'm gonna have trouble finding one!



Um I found one! It's the Yellow Pages Phone book! (Does that count?)

*GiGGLeS* Ok fine, I'll get another!

Well after searching the nearest cupboard and swallowing a shit load of dust! I managed to spot a pile of books! So I shut my eyes and lucky dipped!


or How Not to be Manipulated by Your Pet.

As you've probably guessed, I'm not huge on novels! But any book that I do have remotely close to one will have something to do with ANIMALS!!! *GiGGLeS*

*Opening page 123*...

*Finding 5th sentence*...

*About to type out the next 3*...

'When we named her we immediately found ourselves shortening Liberty to Libby. After all, she was at that time a soft, cuddly, affectionate pup. But as she grew and as her true personality developed, I noticed that my wife insidiously, and certainly without realising it, changed the dogs name.'

Ummm, ok that's going back in the bookshelf to collect dust I think! Booooring!!!

Ok now who will my victims be....

Oh hey! I wanted to ask y'all too, is there actually anyone here that hates to be tagged with memes?
I LOVE being tagged and get excited with new challenges! So I just assume everyone loves them as much as me!

But then I remembered that I'm a bit of a freak anyway, and that not everyone else is like me!

I know I've tagged a few people with memes in the past, who ended up avoiding it completely !*GiGGLeS*

SO just tell me... would you rather not be tagged? Or are you like me and love the fun challenge? Just let me know now so that I'll know in future
who to include, and who not to! :-)

But for now my victims are...

and Thinny

I don't mind meme's though it may take me awhile to get to them as it sometimes takes awhile to figure out seven random facts about me...still.

I just checked my book, hoping it would be a sex scene. Alas. It's not. But it does go with the title of the book which is "Don't Look Down" by Jennifer Crusie & Bob Mayer. (Moot is a Gator so y'know...don't look down.)

"Slow down?" She grabbed onto him. "Moot's in there."

She was shaking under his hands, and he held onto her a moment too long, trying to make her calm. "I'm thinking."

Jenn - Oh thats right! I forgot I tagged you with that!

hahaha well maybe you should wait till after you've played Kings with Aunty Vi... I bet there will be some very interesting 'facts' to post about then :-P

LMAO! Well your book sounds a heck of alot better than mine!! :-) You know you're welcome to do the meme too if you like!

I'd read it! :-) xx

CrystalChick said...

Well, being as I already did this one, I'll have to join in next time. YES, I like most memes, so you can count me IN! :)

Vi said...

Oh don't SCARE Jenn like that! I think I'll keep the cards well away from her.

You know I like meme's, it's just finding the time, and I've done just about bleeding all of them!

But I'll do this one in your comment box!

I just closed my eyes and grabbed the biggest book in my bookcase.

Harry Potter and the order of the phoenix...

'We had two last week, one in Wimbledon, one in Elephant and Castle. Muggles are pulling the flush and instead of everything disapearing - well, you can imagine. The poor things keep calling in those - pumbles, I think they're called - you know, the ones who mend pipes and things.'

Utter Basketcase said...

Crystal - Thats the spirit girl!!! I'll keep you in mind!! :-) xx

Aunty Vi - LMAO!! You can't NOT show Jenn kings! It's like tradition ffs!!! :-P

LMAO, are you sure that's Harry potter? I don't remember that bit! :-P xx

I don't mind the odd tag or two they tend to go in cycles though, not done any for a while then end up with two in a week.

Can I just say VBF that everytime I read this blog I feel like I am in the middle of a manic a very good way of course....xx

Please don't hate me for this, dear one...and I SO totally appreciate the fact that you thought of me for this meme...however, I don't partake in them.

(but I do enjoy reading them!)

Thank you for understanding!
