Well, maybe once more. When I dedicated a post to SJ, he sent all his people here to say hello, so maybe this being nice thing isn't that bad.
Preston from Me and the Blue Skies tagged me with a book meme.
So go visit Preston and say hello from me. He's an honest man who smiles all the time. And if he's not happy all the time, at least he spends the rest of the time being optimistic. So visit him at your own risk--you might end up happy for a moment.
But there's something else I have to warn you about. As of now, there's a lot of Christmas stuff there. Personally, I never got that whole obsession with the birth of Rabbi Yeshua. It's true that he had led an exemplary life (that we know of. We don't really know what crazy stuff he did in his travels in India), and it's true that he's the son of God and all, but--
Well, I guess that's a pretty big thing.
I don't know. Maybe I just have an aversion to the combination of red and green.
Here's the cut-and-pasted book meme thingy:
1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 56.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next two to five sentences.
5. Don’t dig for your favorite book, the cool book or the intellectual one. Pick the Closest.
6. Tag five people to do the same.
Now, I understand the point of choosing a random book, but it's just not working for me. The nearest book is Thoreau's Walden, and I feel sleepy just thinking about this book.
Oh, here's a book with some good quotes:
To me if you are a young girl and you find a boy "groovy" and you go off and move into his "pad" with him, you are definitely making a bad mistake. . . . If I had been living in sin instead of being married I would never have met my next wonderful husband!!!P. 50
The best way to attract a man immediately is to have a magnificent bosom and a half-size brain and let both of them show.P. 78
Recently I was in Denver for the opening of my cosmetic line and they had a big fashion show where Oleg Cassini and Pierre Cardin had their showings. Oleg, whom I adore, brought out a male and a female model identically dressed in green velvet tuxedos. It was darling.P. 102
Never pick up something that is vulgar and buying it will do your husband more harm than good. . . . For example, don't ever buy a conspicuous colored Rolls Royce. A friend of mine bought a pink Rolls Royce and her husband could never use it going to the office. . . . It would have been better if she had bought a black one.
Happy New Year!
