Book Tag

Now that both Th. and Cricket have tagged me in a roundabout and sneaky way, I feel obligated to do this.


1. Pick up the nearest book (at least 123 pages).
2. Turn to page 123.
3. Find the 5th sentence
4. Post the 5th sentence on your blog.
5. Tag 5 people.

"The man needing cables accused the black man of being an Uncle Tom, protecting a white woman from a black man."

From Navigating Differences: Friendships Between Gay Men and Straight Men by Jammie Price.

I will now tag five completely random people who are not I repeat NOT necessarily my five favorite people in the world (sorry to the rest of you; rest assured that you're number six):
  1. FoxyJ,
  2. Scot,
  3. Mama[Mormon],
  4. Craig, and
  5. editorgirl.

Man, we're really picking peaches!

I'm pretty sure this meme is designed to make everyone feel really stupid. I've never seen this posted with a line from The Feynman Lectures on Physics, or The Wealth of Nations.

Mr. Fob said...

Th.: Mine is totally better than yours.

Rebecca: Well I didn't feel stupid before, but now that you mention it... In my defense, my book is not only academic but it's cutting edge gay and lesbian studies, gender studies, and even--apparently, as I haven't actually read page 123 yet--a little bit of race theory. I pooh on the Wealth of Nations.

Mmmm. Peaches.

Mine was dumb too.

Mr. Fob said...

Nevertheless, the blog gods will bless you for your obedience to their decree.

Mama said...

I am not necessarily one of your favorite people?

I've decided to think you were referencing the others with that line. Clearly, I'm your most favorite person. :)

Mr. Fob said...

Right, right, that's exactly what I meant.
