1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open it to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next four sentences after that in your LJ with these instructions: No digging for your favorite book - it has to be the nearest one.
5. Tag five people.
The strictly nearest book is "A Thousand Paths to Love," which doesn't have five sentences on page 123. What it does have is:
"A man who fears nothing, loves nothing."
The next nearest book is "The Language Instinct" by Steven Pinker, and you really kind of don't want to know what those sentences are (though I will post them for you for lols):
"floccinaucinihilipilificationalize: to cause something to pertain to the categorizing of something as worthless or trivial.
floccinaucinihilipilificationalization: the act of causing something to pertain to the categorizing of something as worthless or trivial."
It goes on from there until it eventually ends in floccinaucinihilipilificationalizational
Oh, I tag... noradannan, in_parentheses, keenween, astrum_presul and meg_tdj, because you pretty much can't tag for memes without including Meg.
OMG, and last night I dreamed that noradannan posted entries in CODE and gave us a competish to see who could break the code! I have been reading too many crypanalysis books, but it was pretty cool while it lasted, dream-wise.
