The NEAREST Book

Copied from lots of people.

* Grab the nearest book.
* Open the book to page 10.
* Find the fifth sentence.
* Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
* Don't dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST

"Whats wrong with suggesting that we talk about things later?"

Nick Hornby's How to Be Good turns out to be the closest book to hand, nuzzled next to The Miracle at Speedy Motors and Chekhov, Five plays.

Its about time I boasted about my kids...

Tommy just sat on my knee with a new book he got today, about animals. And pointed to the pictures and named a Maned Wolf, Armadillo, Llama, Pygmy Marmoset, Caiman, Tapir... and probably more animals that I didn't know the names of so I couldn't work out what he was saying. Oh, And Baby Jaguar. I don't let them watch THAT much Diego...

Dear Mr Clegg

If I get an automated phone call at 7pm tonight when I am up to my eyeballs in nappies, bottles of milk, boys fighting over toothbrushes and looking for Lucky Teddy, you are a dead man.

Alternatively I am getting your phone number and setting you a 4am alarm call!

WHY would anyone think that cold calling would make anyone more popular??? Especially at switch off time on cbeebies?
Honestly.

Hello Again

I has a nice exam for the OU tomorrow, in my usual style I will either sail through it or spend 3 hours crying blood.

This year I have mostly been doing 19th Century Novels. I will NOT miss my reading list. Loads of people on my course are popping straight onto the 20thC novel right after. Nutters. Or possibly, don't have toddlers that think that all books are Nom Nom.
