Book meme

The HWA mixer last night was a smashing success. Lots and lots of people showed up, ate and drank, and I didn't even get stuck with a huge bill! More about it later (with pix)...

In the meantime, amusing book meme from faustfatale:

1. Grab the nearest book.

2. Open the book to page 123.

3. Find the fifth sentence.

4. Post the text of the next 4 sentences on your LJ along with these instructions.

5. Don't you dare dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest.

6. Tag five people.

Nearest book was Weirdsville USA: The Obsessive Universe of David Lynch (Ricky's been on a Lynch-a-thon lately). The 4 sentences requested:

A fellow Vietnam vet, who served in the navy, blurts out that Bobby was in Cao Ben when many women and children were massacred. 'Pretty hard to make contact with the people when you're out floatin' in the fuckin' Gulf of Tonkin,' snarls Peru, glowering. Sailor enters the motel room to the odour of vomit. Lula admits that she barfed and didn't have the energy to clean it up, believing she's pregnant.

Well, that's a tangy little passage!

I'll be rebellious and resist the urge to tag five people.
