123 Meme

Whoa. Big weekend. Fun and music and random friends and I fell over. I never fall over, but the ground seemed particularly wobbly and I fell all the way over. It was pretty funny. Then the wind came and the tent shelter thing I was snoozing in fell on me and it was all very flappy and confusing. More details later maybe, but it was all a lot of fun. Even the grumpy bits. At one point I was hurling things through my tent flap like a right fucking drama queen... The Dreaded One and I laughed about that a short time later. She is quality and anger is short lived with us.

But I've been tagged by Damien at Crime Downunder. The meme rules are that you have to open the nearest book to page 123 and quote sentences 6, 7 and 8. I'm rounding it up a little to cover a couple more sentences just to give some context. Lenny Bruce was an amazing man who lead a strange life. Fascinating story.

Although I'm working on a crime story of sorts at the moment, one of the books I'm reading is The Trials Of Lenny Bruce. Page 123:

Marks: Have you ever heard of the word "moralist"?

Block: Yes sir.

Marks: Would you apply that to Mr Bruce?

Block: No, sir. I'd say he was more of a satirist.

Marks: Something like a dirty Will Rogers?

Block: I would say you could call him a dirty Will Rogers, yes.

I'm going to tag Kat, Meva, Girl Clumsy, Mark and Amra. Okay... so I've just realised that Amra has tagged me with the same meme. Funny. Maybe, instead, the avid reader Y. Whether anyone wants to play or not, who knows?

Right. Body and mind need rest now. Why does crazy fun hurt so much? But you know - in the craziness of the party I remember a friend - The Dreaded One's best friend - putting a blanket over me and later taking me by the hand to lead me somewhere nice. I don't have a lot of friends but little things like that, I'm a sucker for them. When they see you at your worst and still do something kind for you, you know they are a quality friend.

All you can do is be grateful stuff like that and always try to do the same for others.

Ooh. My first meme. Actually, Greasvie said he was tagging me on this but then I got the boot because he had too many laydeez on the list.

A Dirty Will Rogers.

Not sure how I feel about that.

How interesting. Although when you say 'nearest book', does that mean any book? Because currently the nearest book to me is titled Rapid GUI Programming with Python and QT - which sounds deceptively like a fun kid's book, but trust me it's not.

I haven't done the meme thing before either, Kat. funny to have two bloggers tag me at the same time.

I think you can interpret nearest as you like, Y. I don't think the Meme Police will storm your home if you bend the rules a little.
