Roadchick tagged me with the following meme.

Does anyone else feel suddenly snobbish or something when they use that word? Meme

Why does that simple little word always bring images of a stuck up Rich,yuppie, wife talking through her nose in my mind. I can even hear her saying something like

"Samantha dahling, did you get my meme? Biff is going out of town for a work confrence upstate, so I thought I would get you and the other guhls together for afternoon tea. See you around 3? Okay tah tah "

"Jeeves? The girls will be here around 3. Be a doll and wash the Bentley and have Consuela bring some caviar out on to the patio okay? kay.

Anyways,,,,,,The meme is as follows:

The Rules of this tag game are:
1. Grab the book nearest to cheating!
2. Open to page 123.
3. Scroll down to the fifth sentence.
4. Post text of next 3 sentences on to your blog.

I actually have two books next to me. The first is "Play dead" by Anne frazier. It is a pretty good book and the first of hers that I have read. I also have her new one that I have been touting but haven't gotten around to reading it yet.

anywhoooooo that excerpt is:

"If all went smoothly,he would be back to Savannah by early evening. It was still dark when he boarded the small commuter jet, carrying nothing but a briefcase with copies of the divorce papers plus some notes on the TTX case."

The other book within reach is "Lost Lake" by Phillip Margolin who is one of my favorite authors.

That excerpt:

"Oh, and there was a call from that man Kirkpatrick."

"what did he want?"

"Morelli is being arraignedat the hospital at one O'clock."


"That is what the message said. He called last night after we forwarded the phones. Than answering service took the call."

(end excerpt)

Okay this isn't really fair. Roadchick, gets an excerpt that causes all kinds of funky possibilities to take out of context. I can't seem to come up with any way to make those excerpts funny or kinky but oh well.

I will pass this on by tagging Michael at Cardiac Fantasies, Christine at Ramblings of a gypsy Soul. Consider yourselves tagged you two.

The tag has been posted. I got dual tagged by Roadchick and yourself.

I was at work. If I hadn't had my reading book six inches closer, you would all be reading a page and a half exerpt from the Texas Legal Code.

I'd love to have a contest on who could do something with that one. Hmmmmmmmm.

Dahlin, maybe you just need to get yourself some trashier reading material!

And, like Michael Thomas said. . .it was a pure stroke of luck that the 'chick even had a bit of fiction at hand, otherwise it's entirely possible y'all would've been reading an excerpt from the State of Tennessee Divison of Mental Retardation Services Provider Manual, 2005 Edition. Fascinating reading, rest assured.

Congrats on the new job & it's good to see you back again!
