Random Violin

Book meme

Feeling the lightest touch of a tag from newsy891 As the nearest book to me is a dictionary, I closed my eyes and selected from the closest shelf at random.

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 4-7 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 (unless it's too troublesome to reach and is really heavy. Then go back to step 1).
6. Tag five people.

"Fair go," Shirl said, "I can't go out there where people can see me...."
"Get out and tape that fucking cable." He did.
Shirley later introduced himself to Stewart's then-girlfriend, Britt Ekland, at the Logies.
"G'day, Britt," Shirl said, "you and me go back a long way. Remember the gig at the Myer Music Bowl? I was driving the forklift."

Graeme "Shirley" Strachan reminiscing about a stint he did working as a roadie, from "Ego Is Not A Dirty Word - The Skyhooks Story" by Jeff Jenkins.

This meme's been around a few times now, gentle readers, so I'll let you tag yourselves. Anyone who wishes to play may consider themselves tagged.
