Meme Thing

I was reading Julie‘s blog and she was tagged for a meme, tagging her readers as well.  Pick up a book nearest you, flip to page 123, go to the 5th sentence, and read the next three sentences.  I have Kurt Vonnegut’s “Slaughterhouse-Five”

There was silence now, as th englishmen looked on in astonishment at the frowsy creatures they had so lustily waltzed inside.  One of the Englishmen saw that Billy was on fire.  “You’re on fire, lad!”

I tag Samer (the only person I know with a blog) Jim, my Dad, and two other people who randomly read this blog.  You are it.

    I have next to me The Journey from the Center of the Page by Jeff Davis.

    “By day’s or week’s end, you may recognize patterns of our culture’s flotsam that may give you fodder for creating a fiction or nonfiction scene. Weaving in and twisting these speech bits also can give a poem texture as it comments on the nature of our daily language. One student wrote a short story in which one of the characters spoke almost entirely in commercial jingles and sound bites.”

    I have The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder by Vincent Bugliosi.
    “In fact, in 2005 Drumheller told the Presidential Commission on Illegal Weapons that everyone in the CIA’s chain of command knew about the severe problems with Curveball’s credibility, and documentation on his unreliability was circulated widely within the agency. (The Times reported that Drumheller had told it the same thing.) James L. Pavitt, the CIA’s deputy director of operations at the time, told the Times that ‘there was yelling and screaming about this guy’ at the agency.”
