Thanks to Maili for some easy blogging.


1. Take first five novels from your bookshelf.
2. Book 1 — first sentence
3. Book 2 — last sentence on page 50
4. Book 3 — second sentence on page 100
5. Book 4 — next to the last sentence on page 150
6. Book 5 — final sentence of the book
7. Make the five sentences into a paragraph.
8. Feel free to “cheat” to make it a better paragraph.
9. Name your sources
10.Post to your blog.

Okay – must cheat immediately due to laziness and bookshelf being much too high to reach top shelf. This will also show you that there is absolutely no rhyme or reason to the way I throw books up, but the five books were right in a row on the first shelf I could reach without aide of stepladder. So here it is, no cheating to make it better since that would require more coffee:

“A bodyguard! I don’t need any damned bodyguard!” Where they most breed and haunt, I have observed the air is delicate. But she also felt wanted, and she liked it. And I will not fail. “Got to do one thing right for the old fellow, you know?”

1. Heaven, Texas – Susan Elizabeth Phillips
2. Macbeth
3. The Secret Life of Bryan – Lori Foster
4. Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhoos – Rebecca Wells
5. Rogue Warrior – Richard Marcinko

And now – the blog version, since you can never have too much procrastination:

1. Select five blog links from your links sidebar
2. Blog 1 – first sentence of the latest blog entry
3. Blog 2 – second to last sentence of the earliest blog entry on the front page
4. Blog 3 – last sentence of the first blog entry of the entire blog
5. Blog 4 – third sentence of the third blog entry on the front page
Then, click on the last link of the Blog Links sidebar at Blog 4. If there isn’t one, do this with Blog 3
5. Blog 5 – last sentence of the latest blog entry
6. Put all together to create a paragraph out of all that
7. Post it to your blog along with links to all blogs that you used here.

Here goes:

Emma and I are like-minded today (which no doubt scares the hell out of her.) Henceforth, it will be referred to as the R word (for those with sensitive constitutions.) Hint: I’m big on convenience, not so big on pride. I’m definitely having one, combined with a headache. I have NO IDEA why people immediately equate nice guys with wimps, because all the nice guys I’ve known are plenty assertive–they’re just not dickheads about having their way all the time, every time.
