Passing Sentence

I nicked this from Kumquat... I'm sure I've done this one before, but it's always good fun.

  1. Grab the nearest book.
  2. Open the book to page.
  3. Find the fifth sentence.
  4. Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
  5. Don’t search around and look for the “coolest” book you can find. Do what’s actually next to you.

Here's mine:

Maybe we're not as brainy-smart as Lord Byron and Mary Shelley, but we can tolerate some shit to make our story work.

"it's been thirty years since i saw her naked body - more japanese than i would have thought, if Adletsky hadn't pointed it out"

thats from The Actual by Saul Bellow.(yes, it was the nearest book to me!)

I hadn't got up to that bit, but could see it coming

I don't have a blog but felt the need to go through with the activity, see you over the festival somewhere, Sam...
