Hark, for Tierfal hath been tagged by marmaladefever!

1. Grab the book closest to you.
2. Open it on page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Copy the next three sentences into your blog.
5. Tag five people.

1. BUT I HAVE THREE PILES AND THEY'RE ALL NEARBY AND THE ABSOLUTE CLOSEST IS BORING WHEREAS IN FURTHER PILES I HAVE WUTHERING HEIGHTS AND CEREMONY AND EURIPIDES AND TWO ARTEMIS FOWL BOOKS AND TWO HARRY POTTER BOOKS AND ALL THE PERCY JACKSONS AND... AND...

2. - 3. Wai-wai-wait.  You... want me... to... count... things...?  Do you REALIZE what a cataclysm you invite?!

4. A fifth was that they went to the Far West, where the sun sets in the ocean, and a spirit world much like the present.  A sixth was that a ghost received punishment according to the life he led.  To this the Orphics finally added the theory of metempsychosis, the transmigration of souls: a process which could be to some degree controlled by the use of magical formulas.

From The Greek Myths: Complete Edition by Robert Graves.  The myth is on the gods of the Underworld, but noooo, page 123 was explanation.... (fill in more gratuitous whining here)

5. 'Kay, I barely even have five FRIENDS, so let's just say that anyone who wants it oughta go for it.  Hop to it, kiddies.

*pretends she's going to go study for her midterm now*

*is lying*

*would like to extend an immeasurable quantity of gratitude in eltea's direction, because said Eltea's listening to a great deal of useless bitching earlier today prevented a total breakdown of all of Tierfal's mental and emotional processes*

If I'd just cheated and used Percy Jackson, it would've been a very enticing quote. :P

Aw, shucks. ^_^;; Maybe I'll acquire more as I go. XD

Too fun! I did it!

I like doing these for some reason. So I started going through all the other books in the room and doing the same thing and was like...wow.

Yay! XD

It's pretty interesting what comes up, as I discovered doing pretty much the same thing. :P
