Tagged (and not with Graffiti!)

Thanks, Kally, for tagging me. I love this sort of thing! As with all games of tag, there are always rules.

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open to page 56.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 2 to 5 sentences, along with these rules.
5. Don't dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual book. Pick the CLOSEST!
6. Tag five other people to do the same!

The book nearest to me is Save Karyn by Karyn Bosnak. (Yes, it's one of my all time favorites, but I didn't have to go digging for it. I pulled it off the shelf on Monday to read for the umpteenth time just because I'm in the mood for a good laugh...) Here it is...

"The next day I woke up with a smile on my face. I got dressed for work and hopped on the bus. I was getting used to this commute. It wasn't so bad. I didn't have any cases today, so I got off a block early and went to Starbucks."

Too bad I couldn't use the page where she talks about getting her first Brazilian in a pubicle cubicle...or her encounter with Stevie Wonder where she humiliated herself by waving at him (a la Ryan Seacrest)...or her attempt at full time money/part time work with the purchase of "Winning in the Cash Flow Business". Yes, that would have been funnier and would have made you go right out and buy this book. (Being bloggers, you would all appreciate how she dug herself out of her financial hole). Sorry, I don't think I was supposed to add all of this additional information, but I don't always follow the rulz.

Now for the hard part...the tagging... (can I tag everyone? No? Okay...)

I choose....drum roll....

Business finished.

Now, on to other things...

Do you hear that? No? It's something I'm not familiar with. What IS that?
Oh, it's silence, you say? Yes, I've heard of that phenomenon.

Today is AWA Friday for me. The company I work for has Alternative Work Arrangements, so I work 9 hour days and get every other Friday off. Hubby is at work. Mini is at daycare. I have the house and TV all to myself. The Snowbeast is at my disposal, so I can toodle around town all I want today. I considered calling my genius hairstylist to possibly get a cut today (and discuss getting back to blonder cause I'm concerned about the grays I'm finding), but that was just too ambitious. As it was, I cleaned the downstairs (not sure about my motivation to do the upstairs), bought groceries, unloaded the dishwasher, got the laundry started, AND watched an episode of The City. I think that's enough for today and now I'll go downstairs, read a little Save Karyn, watch an episode of Paranormal State and eat some tuna. My furlough is dwindling. Only about 5 1/2 hrs before I go get Mini (who, by the way, woke up at 1am this morning, wanted waffles at 2 and didn't go back to sleep until 3).

Yay! I loved to be tagged for things!!! I feel way special right now! I guess I'm not good at the follow-through. I need to catch up and do it all in one blog! Oh my...that could take a while.

I'm glad that you are enjoying your Friday! I say you've done enough cleaning for one day! Worry about the upstairs on your next Friday off~

Oh the peacefulness you have. I could almost sense it, then I heard the loud clanging of toys and Kung Fu Panda playing, so it didn't last long.

Thanks for the tag!! I need to go clean myself. Not clean myself, but clean the house myself. Whatever. It's already been a long day.

Ah yes, those quiet moments.
(If you have time to meet other bloggers come over and join my Virtual GNO. I can't really make it 'out' so I have to do it virtually. :-> )

thanks for the tag, my friend! I have to admit that everyone you tagged would also be on my list. I have no blogger friends that weren't your blogger friends first!!
