redshoes on bookstack

Yes, I could be vacuuming, I suppose.

Instead, I've facebooked and LJ'ed and read fics from the d/gficexchange.  And I've meme'ed.  Let's not forget the memes.  :)

I'm pretty sure I stole these from reenie1 and Cinnamon Badge (Whose LJ username I can never remember!)  Can't be sure, though.  I've looked at a LOT of Livejournals today.  :)

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 4-7 sentences on your LJ 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 (unless it's too troublesome to reach and is really heavy. Then go back to step 1). 

Here's mine:  It's from the book that my mother gave me this weekend, that she bought because J.K Rowling is quoted on the front cover as saying that the author is a 'charismatic narrator'.  I Capture the Castle, by Dodie Smith.

"Simon went to the door and opened it.  I ran full tilt down the stairs and across to him.  There was a light above the door that made everything seem pitch black beyond.
"Don't catch them," I whispered.
He smiled down at me in astonishment.  "Good heavens, I'm not going to hurt them."  He went down the steps and shouted, "Anyone there?"
There was a stifled laugh quite close.


Hm.  I haven't started  it yet.  Perhaps the charasmatic bit is on another page?

And Ethan has a fever today, again.  It's only 101.5 today.  Yeterday it was 103.3.  We have a 2:45 dr. appt.  Yay.
