Da Fredcritter falls for another meme....  

Book Meme
[copied from barbary_coast]

Grab the nearest book.
Open the book to page 23.
Find the fifth sentence.
Post the text of the sentence in your journal...
...along with these instructions.

Actually, there were two books right next to each other in my backpack, so I'll quote the fifth complete* sentence from each.

Antwerp was the center of a group of Mannerist painters whose works were created for export chiefly to Spain, where there was a vogue for decorated and extravagant fantasies in the Flemish manner.

and

Let us separate: if you go north, I will go south; and if you go south, I will go north.

*The instructions did not specifically address this point, so I made a "ruling" before I opened the books….

Re: I know you told me, but what was a meme again?
Boy, you sure are up late. I am just sitting here at wonderful Merrill... There is nothing going on, so I just thought I'd take up some time and start a journal. It's kind of fun!

I didn't mean to be offensive by asking what the point was, I was just curious. I am aware that no point is necessary. In fact, generally speaking, I love pointless things. They are so much more fun than things with a purpose!

See you Monday!

Re: I know you told me, but what was a meme again?

Late? Naw, I was just staying on schedule so Monday wouldn't be the pits. Of course, it turns out (now that I'm here) that Monday's the pits anyway, but what can ya do?

I didn't mean to be offensive by asking what the point was …. Hmmmm. I see I need to work on my "tone of voice" cues—I didn't think you were being offensive, nor was I offended. In fact, I thought it a perfectly reasonable question. Hmmmm. As a very wise man wrote to a group I was in a long time ago: if it helps any, just think of me sitting here at my keyboard smiling, always smiling&hellip.
