I've Been Tagged!

Posted by Picasa

My fellow Native Texan, Tara, at Design on Post has tagged me times two and challenged me.

Tag #1:

"Post the 6th picture in your 6th folder."

So that explains the horrible photo above, taken through the shower door. As to why there are bunnies in the shower: I bought these two bunnies a couple of years ago and put them in the shower that same evening to surprise Tall Husband. They actually startled the heck out of him when he headed for the shower. Such language, Tall Husband!

Tag #2:

"Grab the nearest book.Open the book to page 56. Find the fifth sentence. Post the text of the next two to five sentences in your blog along with these instructions. Don’t dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST. Tag five other people to do the same."

I have just returned from the bookstore, so the nearest book is the one I purchased from the bargain table: "The 2,548 Best Things Anybody Ever Said." Selected and compiled by Robert Byrne. And wouldn't you know it; the pages aren't numbered so I had to count them. Here are the sentences:

"A piano is a piano is a piano. Gertrude Steinway, Unknown"

"A manuscript, like a fetus, is never improved by showing it to somebody before it is completed. Unknown"

"Every journalist has a novel in him, which is an excellent place for it. Russell Lynes"

Now, for the matter of that challenge. Post some “sparklies” (bright spots in life in the midst of all the “bad news” out there):

  1. Tall Son and family are arriving for a visit this Friday.
  2. Calvin Klein Home's is unveiling its first ever furniture collection (cool modern) in January.
  3. Darryl Carter has designed a furniture collection (cool twist on traditional) for Thomasville. He's a great designer and author of "The New Traditional." He edits his work down to the absolute ethereal essentials.
  4. Yes, I too am thankful gasoline prices are decreasing. OPEC and other speculators always underestimate the Great American ability to "cut back," to force prices down. Just wait till they suffer from the new technologies that are coming down the pike.
  5. Tall Husband made me laugh out loud four times today.
  6. We went to an interesting party this weekend, where we saw old friends and met new ones.
So, Tara, thanks for the two tags and the challenge. It's been great fun! Anyone who reads this and chooses to respond, consider yourself tagged and challenged.
