Tag Me Down There

Not only have I been a crappy blog writer lately, I've been an even crappier blog reader. I have no excuse. I was tagged by the lovely and talented OG LAST WEDNESDAY, and I didn't see it until tonight. I am so sorry, OG. If you're upset, you can always take it out on Evo. He really, really loves the abuse.

So here are the rules of the tag:

Grab the nearest book (that is at least 123 pages long).
2. Open to p. 123.
3. Go down to the 5th sentence.
4. Type in the following 3 sentences.
5. Tag five people.

Since the room my computer is in also houses my art supplies, the book closest to me is a nursing book from 1909 that I bought because it had some pretty cool illustrations that I wanted to use in my art.

Here are the three sentences.

Cold may be applied to the abdomen and the genitals. We will now suppose that a nurse has been called to a confinement case. What is the first thing to be done?

Christ on a stick! Even when I participate in a seemingly innocent game of tag, my blog heads straight for the nether regions. Flumadiddle - all the crotch you could ever hope for, without all those nasty STDs.

I am going to tag any of my readers who haven't already been tagged - you can leave your 3 sentences in the comments. OH OH OH then I can post a compilation of them and see what we come up with. Ohmigod! Won't that totally be fun? Of course, it will!

I'm so easily amused.

Take Care,


  1. Moreover, there are no laws to protect privately owned rocks, as there are for creeks and certain trees. Owners can chip them, mine them, even demolish them. Or they can try.

    "Thats fine. Then if I could have the lovely balm Moira spoke of, and a meal, I'd be as good as new-but for the fact every bone of my body feels as it its been hit with a hammer."
    Straight truth, Blair thought.

  3. Well, I've already played this at another blog, but I have a different book in front of me today, so:

    Unfortunately, the obvious 2.Nb1-c3 move is not effective because black can defend the e4-square with Ng8-f6. The Queen's Gambit Accepted White usually continues with 2.c2-c4, a move that gambits a pawn, though it is rare that black accepts the offer. Ater 2.c2-c4 d5xc4, white is able to gain undisputed control over the center of the board with 3.Nb1-c3 and 4.e2-e4.

    All I have to say about that is: I've been trying my whole life to gain undisputed control, but I never realized it was so easy. Now if I could only get somebody to put some cold compresses on my abdomen and genitals, I'd be as happy as a pig in shit.

    "Strauss, by way of gratitude, called him a dilettante. This was most unjust, for if any one deserved to share Strauss's place of honour, it was certainly Weiss.

    The idea that Mark's gospel might be the earliest of the four, first occurred to Weiss during the progress of his work."

  5. From the book by Kinky Friedman,
    "'SCUSE ME WHILE I WHIP THIS OUT" are the following 3 sentences on page 123. There are only 3 sentences on the page, so here they are.
    <"By sometime around 330 B.C., Alexander the GreaT had conquered much of the known world, including what we now call the Middle East. Like Napoleon and Hitler, Alexander was short and very much distrusted cats, Jews and newspapers. Also like Napoleon and Hitler, Alexander did not get to have much fun in life. Soon after his victories he stepped on a rainbow and spent a great deal of downtime hopping around hell on a pogo stick waiting to be bugled to Jesus, who, of course, would not be born for another three hundred years.I>

  6. I am so sorry, OG. If you're upset, you can always take it out on Evo. He really, really loves the abuse.

    I'm not upset, but I can abuse Evo anyway.

    I'd post another page 123, but then I'd have to tag you again and you could see how this circular tagging could get exhausting after a while. It'd probably take over our blogs and our lives and then what would we do?

  7. Flummy honey, I already did this meme.

    Carla, I love Kinky Friedman and am very sad that he couldn't be my governor. After all, he couldn't have screwed things up any worse than they already were...

  8. Another difficulty may arise with some seeds and some weather conditions where an electrostatic charge builds up and hold the seeds to the plate. I solved that problem by fabricating a small wooden crossbar with a toothbrush attached below it. It sits across the seed hopper and brushes the seeds off the plate and down the seed tube.

    wow, that is fun....

  9. In DSM-IV, disorders formerly called "organic mental disorders" have been grouped into three sections: 1) Delerium, Dementia, and Amnestic and other Cognitive Disorders; 2) Mental Disorders Due to a General Medical Condition; and 3) Substance-Related Disorders.

    A delerium is characterized by a disturbance of consciousness and a change in cognition that develop over a short period of time. The disorders included in the "Delerium" section are listed according to presumed etiology: Delerium Due to a General Medical Condition, Substance Induced Delerium, Delerium Due to Multiple Etiologies, or Delerium Not Otherwise Specified.

  10. Ex: I always thought you were a great guy, but you play chess too? That's it. You're my candidate for President.

    Carla: Nice to see another Kinky fan out there! I started reading Stepping on a Rainbow just yesterday.

    Babs: Looking forward to the compilation!

  11. Lifey:

    To say that I play chess is the same as saying that a four-year-old who appears in his pre-school Halloween play as a piece of candy corn acts.

    At the end of each episode the whole family comes together to drink a cup of Maxwell House coffee. The second example was created in 1951 for Procter & Gamble (4) with each fifteen-minute episode interrupted by a commercial for the cleaning product Spic & Span.

    It's a slow afternoon at work, so I'll add a second entry to the list:

    "The farther apart the tools are, the harder it is to channel their force in the right directions. If you twist a tool sideways you may damage some cog teeth. The most reliable method of all is to immobilize the freewheel in a freewheel vise and use two chain whips."

  14. For the love of Pete. Why'd I choose this seat to set up the lap top today? I'm surrounded by stacks of books! Gonna take some work to figure out which is officially the closest...

    Okay - Almost missed it. Was buried under a stack of bills and notebooks etc... It is Horizons, vol IX, No 1 (Winter 1967) - actually a periodical but it is hardcover bound so it counts methinks:

    Oh Shit on a stick! It ends at page 120! Fuck a duck...

    Okay, Stone of Tears by Terry Goodkind: "Kahlan took a second glance at their hands to see if they were empty; they looked like they should be carrying switches. Their eyes watched, as if ready to silence any impudence. The woman in the middle spoke."

    Well that was boring. Looking forward to your compilation!
