Nothing Much

It is 2:30 a.m. and the alarm is set for 5:15 so, by way of Gunfighter, by way of sf, by way of who knows. I'm playing because, hey its 2:30 a.m. Play or nay, entirely up to you.

1. Grab the nearest book of at least 123 pages.
2.Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence - if the book you grabbed has fewer than seven sentences on page 123-grab another.
4.Post the text of the next three sentences on your blog 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.

Ok, so I have three books currently in rotation, at my fingertips. One, a novel, I just started. The other two I've been in and out of, trying to gain some...well, the titles pretty much say it all.

"The Art of Detection" by Laurie R. King is the fifth installment of her Kate Martinelli series. She is probably more renown for her Mary Russell series, where I have yet to venture, for fear of falling head over time management, anxious to digest all eight in one swallow.

Text: "Sounds like the moon. I had an interesting talk with Mr. Nicholson." She told him about the manuscript, its apparent worth and importance.

"The Whole Lesbian Sex Book-A Passionate Guide for All of Us"

Text: "[N]ot unlike their heterosexual brothers and sisters, and gay brothers, the women met, fell in love and created a life together. Their work and family lives developed and demanded attention and energy, sometimes at the cost of quality intimate time together." Iasenza goes on to say that a "careful" reading of sex research "provides little evidence that lesbian sexuality is less active or less fulfilling than gay or heterosexual sex."

"Everything You Need to Know About Menopause-A Comprehensive Guide to Surviving-and Thriving-During This Turbulent Life Stage"

Text: "Women with a nutritious diet will get most of the nutrients that they need for long-term heart health, but herbs and supplements can provide some extra insurance. Studies have shown that women who take vitamin E supplements reduce their risk of heart attack by up to 41 percent. Vitamin E may help prevent heart disease in several ways.

I'm turning off the lights and trying to catch a few z's.

  1. Who the hell said lesbian sex is less fulfilling? Less active, yes, we've all heard about that. Whoever thinks that hasn't met any of the couples we know...or us.

    The Whole Lesbian Sex Book - so when your future girlfriend asks if you're 'well read' you can say 'yes.'

  2. I don't know, I think I prefer the Half Lesbian Sex Book ...

    Just kidding.

    Nice to meet you (well, in the uniquely blogger-to-blogger sense) ... I look forward to checking in with the Only Daughter/Middle Girl on a regular basis.
