1. Grab the nearest book
2. Open the book to page 123
3. Find the fifth sentence
4. Post the text of the next 3 sentences on your blog, along with these instructions.
5. Don’t you dare dig for that “cool” or “intellectual” book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it. Just grab what is closest!
Okay, so just now when I copied and pasted those instructions, I noticed it says to post the text “on your blog.” And I’m a big dork, ’cause I posted mine in Toad’s comments. But HOW WILL I KNOW WHO’S PLAYING, IF YOU DON’T POST IT IN THE COMMENTS?
So, just to make me feel better (because this is, after all, all about ME), and so that I don’t feel so much like a dork, please post your text HERE in the comments first, then post it on your blog, blah, blah, blah, yadda, yadda, if you want.
So. Here’s mine:

Well, I AM at my computer, after all. And, sorry for the all-caps stuff. I just typed it like it was in the manual.
Okay, folks. Your turn!
