Candy left me a message saying I'd been tagged. So, I checked out her latest post, Yikes! I’ve been tagged! to find out what she was talking about.
Seems like I’ve got to find the nearest book to me, open it at page 123, find the fifth sentence then post the next three sentences on my blog. When I’ve done that I have to tag five people and post a comment to Angela's blog.
OK. I think I’ve got that all sussed out. Sounds pretty easy!
Let me see… the nearest book to me is in my handbag under my desk. It is Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson. I decided to read it again after my son chose the DVD to watch from Blockbusters a few weeks back. The one I'm reading was published by Puffin in 1980, not the latest edition below, which means I got it when I was 15 years old.
The three sentences I have to post are:
“Your friend Leslie is dead, Jesse. You need to understand that.”Oh dear… am I allowed to do that? I’ve just written what’s going to happen in the book. I know I like to read the end of the books first but, people do get cross at me when I tell them what’s going to happen.
Jess slid his hand out from under his father’s. He got up from the
Maybe, that’s what the experiment is trying to prove that the pivot of the book is on page 123, in the sixth, seventh and eighth sentences. Hang on I’ll just go check it out and see. In the words of my hero: “I’ll be back.”
This is where I tell you I’ve gone wrong already. Instead of leaving a comment on Angela's blog you are supposed to leave a comment on Candy’s blog to say you’ve done it, as she is the one who tagged me. Sorry about that. I hope you read this far before rushing off to do the deed.
I was going to tag Nicky’s Absolute Vanilla blog but, it looks like Jude got to her before me. Nicky’s on her honeymoon too. Lucky thing! Then I tried to tag Jez Layman’s Typeset World and guess what? Jude beat me there too!
Ahh… there’s a problem! I’m not sure I know five people who have blogs that have not already been tagged. I’m off again to research blogs I can tag. This is a lot more complicated than I first thought.
Ever thoughtful, here is a procrastination flowchart to keep you amused this time.
I’m back! ...again. Well, these are the five people I’ve decided to tag whether they like it or not:
- Simon Whaley - Writer
- Addy’s – Wilf’s World (How she is going to do this on a fictional blog mind I’ve no idea. I’m sure she will find a way.)
- Lynn Huggin-Cooper’s MySpace Blog
- Rhea’s - Word Tangle (Who happened to comment on my blog once)
- David McMahon’s - authorblog (Who doesn’t even know me, has never commented on my blog but, I found his blog in a random search of desperation and he does say he is committed to ‘encouraging excellence in others’ and you all know how much I need encouragement. So I tagged him. At least Jude didn’t get there first.)
Good luck. Hope the instructions on what you have to do are clear. LOL!
