I usually abstain from memes, but this one brought a twinkle to my eye when I realized how much fun this could be given what was closest to me.

Here we go:

Instructions:
1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open to page 92.
3. Find the third sentence.
4. Post the text of the sentence along with these instructions.
5. Don't dig for a favorite book, pick the CLOSEST.



By Sept. we have to decide whether to negotiate a long term sales agreement with the Soviets.

I saw you searching for "Reagan" in my footprints...I was wondering how long it'd take you to arrive at the correct answer.

As you can see, I've got someone really hard trying to guess without the aid of Google over on Xanga. And I was hoping that this would propogate to Facebook bofore the cut...of course, that's only picked up off of my Xanga Feed...I'll add the book cover momentarily.

I couldn't remember where you told me, but your Xanga was no help whatsoever. I found the reference on my livejournal, which led me to your comment on my Xanga entry: http://www.xanga.com/ehowton/685233391/day-without-a-gay/

Spin it how you will, using Google and your Xanga won't help. As with everything else on this earth, you have to first know what you're looking for.

It will, once updated. If someone (on Xanga) gets it right. And prior to this post, sticking that quote in Google does not reference The Reagan Diares.

I like your train of thought though.

That's almost relevant.

Can I have that avatar?

Re: x

That was me following your instructions for my turn in the game.

I'm glad you like the avatar. Years ago my mother had given me her 24k gold Parker fountain pen, and needing a new literature avatar, I took one of my copies of Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights and contrived several shots of it on my glass-top desk hoping one would come out. I played with them for a week before I decided on this one.

Re: x

Doh!

Only God knows what book you're reading. If I had to guess, I'd say it's probably an HP UX manual.

I've wanted an avatar like the one photogoot used for writing (sadly it's unavaiable now; I guess that's because his LJ subscription ran out).

So I'm guessing the answer to my question above is "no". I would be most greatful if you would consider making a reading as well as writing avatar. What I like the most about your new book avatar is that it can be used for both purposes.

Thanks.

Damn!

Will you make me a reading and writing avatar. They can be mixed lke yours or two seperate ones. It does not matter to me.

Thanks!

Re: x

I'm pretty sure you don't deserve something as awesome as this, what with the tweak of perspective as it diminishes in the page, but I may be saying this because it came out a whole hell of a lot better than I had anticipated:

Normally, before someone starts making further demands on a favor, the words "Thank you" are uttered.

Re: x

I thought I said "Thanks!" up there. But in case of an oversight on either end, I offer my most humble thanks.

Thank you kindly!

Re: x

You couldn't scroll the fuck up on your own blog and see that you didn't? You'd rather suggest it might have been an oversight on my part?

Incomprehensible!

Jesus! I'm trying to test some software and came back to the blog via email. Give me a break! I'm not trying to be arrogant. But I am getting annoyed.

I seriously thought I said thanks. Now I'm going to go look.

Fuck.

I said "Perfect!" instead. Please excuse my use of substituting praise for grattitude.
