Another Blog Tag
|I got tagged again, this time by Erin who was tagged by Steph.|
Here is my response:
The instructions for this tag--
1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 3 sentences on your LJ/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.
6. Tag five people. (I think this should be changed to ONE!)
