Message In a Bottle

If you want to leave a virtual message in a bottle, for all of time, check out this site. I sent one.

I saw this 123 Page meme on Canned Laughter and decided to do it.

Grab the nearest book.
Open the book to page 123.
Find the 5th sentence.

Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
Don't search around and look for the coolest book you can find. Do what's actually next to you.

I propped myself up on an elbow and rubbed my eyes.

Tomorrow morning, Quinn goes in for a teeth cleaning. Thank you Jebus! He is almost 11 and I have never had them cleaned. Probably because he's never had bad breath ... until now.

I'm going out tonight with my friends Debbie and Pam. Pam has a birthday, this year. She was born leap year, so every four years she celebrates ... the biotch, never ages. Here we are in the 80's. Pam was rockin' the bug eye look and I had some Farrah hair going on.

BwaHaHaHaHaHaHa! Pam's glasses are sooo funny. OH, and so is your "Farrah" hair. (beautiful hands though =)

Ah the 80s...I shudder to think about them...and while you were cute in the 80s, you are really beautiful now -- I think that's one of the nicest things about life as we get older -- there are things we would no longer do but at the time they were "right". And when we look back and where we are now? We'll be glad that we're beyond needing the "fashion", the "fad" of the moment! Wish I had a birthday only every 4 years though!!!

No Shit!

I'm at work and there really any "books", but I did have my hand Gregg Reference Manual.

Page 123, sentence 5

b. Use all figures-even for the numbers 1 through 10 (as in this sentence)- when....

Here's the rest, cause I know you are dying to find out

....they have technical significance or need to stand out for quick comprehension.

page 123, sentence 5
"Autobiography of a Face" - Lucy Grealy

"I could even see the classroom window I had gazed out of"

The first book I picked up had nothing on page 123 -- it was a chapter header!!

So Nancy....stroll on over to Sage & Thyme -- I've (finally..ahem)..left something there for you today!!! LOL!!

Hi! :)

I saw your bottle on the message blog, and it said you were from Michigan. I am too, so I wanted to say hello!

So.. HI! :)

My new nephew is supposed to be born tomorrow...on the 29th. I was curious if it would be a fun thing or an icky thing to have a Leap Year birthday.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and showing me some blog-love. Everyone's support has been overwhelming!
