It's All About Meme

I knew this would happen...

Donna at The Silence Of Our Friends
has tagged me with a book meme:

1. Grab the book closest to you.
2. Open to page 123, go down to the fifth sentence.
3. Post the text of next 3 sentences on your blog.
4. Name of the book and the author.
5. Tag three people.

I went to Marshall's, charged a new wardrobe. Loud shirts and outrageously designed pants.

I went to Supercuts, got a modified mohawk.

I had done it.
It's from The Ignored, by Bentley Little, which I, uh, haven't read yet. It's about a guy who's, well, ignored. And then he's not, and then a Mysterious Stranger With Horrible Plans finds him. That's about all I know about it until I actually read it.

*mutter about Donna quoting from Jane Austen to make me look bad*

I tag... let's see... the shadowy and mysterious Codename V, oldwhitelady, and fourlegsgood.

I guess I can see why he's ignored, what with loud outfits charged at Marshalls (can you actually get a such a thing in that store?) and all...

Maybe everyone was just politely *pretending* to ignore him.

Ha ha. Ya done good, Eli.

Donna said...

LOL As far as I'm concerned Jane Austen is my kind of Harlequin Romance. I watched Clueless yesterday just because it's based on Pride and Prejudice.

That sounds like a good book. I want to know what he does next after he gets his loud outfit and crazy haircut.

Emma.

Sorry - the shadowy and mysterious Codename V. is a bit of a Jane Austen nut...

oldwhitelady said...

Okay. I've almost finished mine. I have to figure out who to tag. Your book sounds like it could be fun:)

Donna said...

LMAO, you're right it is Emma. I told you I read the complete novels all at once about a month ago, so now I'm getting them confused with each other.

V said...

Who you callin' a nut? Just because I've seen the Keira Knightley Pride & Prejudice, and the five hour Colin Firth Pride & Prejudice, and the Bollywood Pride & Prejudice, and the Mormon Pride & Prejudice...

Wait. Maybe I am a nut. Note: The Mormon version of Pride & Prejudice is actually very cute, and I'm about as far from Mormon as you can get. Nothing tops Colin Firth, though. Nothing.

Jenny from the Blog said...

Nothing tops Colin Firth, though. Nothing.

V: I can't watch any other version, because Colin Firth was BORN to play that part. That's probably the single greatest performance in the history of performances; and I say that with only a teensy bit of hyperbole. ;)

Eli said...

The prosecution rests, Your Honor. We would also like to name Jenny as an unindicted co-nut.

Jenny from the Blog said...

I heard that. ;)

I agree I love the A&E version and have seen the Keira Knightley one and liked it too, but the A&E one is so good because it's long and that's why it's true to the book. I want to see the BBC versions of the Jane Austen books.

It's not just Colin Firth. I didn't really like Donald Sutherland as Mr Bennet. I thought Benjamin Whitrow had the right kind of flippant attitude that I read in the book. The same goes for the pompous/obsequience of Mr Collins. It was just right in the A&E version.
