We have been tagged. Kate informed me yesterday. So i checked her blog (see link) and sure enough, we have been deemed 'IT'.
And if you follow the trail, you will see that it seems to stream out endlessly through the Book Smugglers Club, Fantasy Cafe Realms of Speculative Fiction and on and on i'm sure. And what it means is that we must pick up the nearest book, turn to page 123 and copy down the fifth sentence here....
well, i have 2 books stacked on top of each other next to me on the coffee table. so i give you 2. the 1st from Pacific Northwest Camping..."The park has sandy beaches, located about 250 yards from the camp." This is in reference to Kopachuck State Park, in case you were wondering.
The 2nd is a little more difficult. The book is Jack Kerouac's Desolation Angels. And if you have ever read any Jack, you know he doesn't just have run-on sentences, he has run-on paragraphs. So upon turning to page 123 i see one sentence and then the paragraph rambles on, interspersed with dashes, that doesn't end until we come to a question mark at the bottom of page 124. So i will interpret some of these dashes as sentence enders when it seems Jack takes us on to the next car on his rambling train of words. so here it is... "-They've come from Fillmore in cars, with their girls or without, the cool colored cats of Sunday San Fran in incredibly beautiful neat sports attire, to knock your eyes out, shoes, lapels, ties, no-ties, studs-"
there it is
As far as the Dude goes, who knows what books he chose to take to the floating city in the Mediterranean.
Dude, you got anybody you wanna tag?

...because playing tag is sort of like a sport, right? :)

And y'all are good sports too.
