1-2-3 tag

Thanks to St. Elizabeth for the tag on this one!

Here are the rules:
  • Pick up the nearest book of 123 pages or more. (No cheating!)
  • Find Page 123.
  • Find the first 5 sentences.
  • Post the next 3 sentences.
  • Tag 5 people.
Before I give you the three sentences, I want to say that I moderately cheated on this, because I originally read that I was tagged at work on my Reader and waited until I got home to respond. That being said, the closest book at hand is Stephen Colbert's I Am America (and so can you!). I intentionally left it out in my family room this past week because I wanted to have something left to read once my "library" was packed up for the move.

The appropriate passage for the tag:

The easiest way for college professor "bees" to administer their "idea poison" is through their "thought-stingers," commonly called "books."

[Sidebar]
WakeUp Call:
Think books aren't scary? Well, think about this: You can't spell "Book" without "Boo!"
[/Sidebar]
And in case the sidebar doesn't count, the following two sentences are also quite good:
The only good book is the Good Book. Come on, the word "Good" is right there in the title.
I tag: Alice, Hugues, Melissa, Dave, (not Dana because of her Lenten promise!), and that regular reader (whoever you are) to please post in the comments box. Looking forward to the sentences!

Et pour mes amis francais, il ne faut pas que vous choisiez un livre en anglais - n'importe quelle langue, francais, latin, espagnol! Vous me manquez beaucoup!
