O Sole Me-me-o!
I was tagged by both John and Bobbie for the great book meme floating around the blogosphere right now.
The rules: Find Page 123.
Find the first 5 sentences.
Post the next 3 sentences.
Tag 5 people.
I am woefully behind (such is the life of a working girl, these days!). But since I was tagged twice, I thought I would offer two book excerpts.
Isn't it nice how this book cover ties in with the theme of my blog? Heh...
From page 123:
Set to guarding the boat, the weavers were unable to protect it -- or themselves -- from naked women who danced around it until the weavers were roused enough for additional pleasures.
(an excerpt from a chapter on Scandinavian sun goddess myths and rites of spring)
and from page 123 :
We wore our circle pins sometimes at the neck just below our Peter Pan collar, sometimes on our lapel if we had one, most often on our sweaters and blouses, on the soft spot below the shoulder and above the breast.
(about growing up as a woman in the '50's)
I am not going to tag anyone. If you liked this game and haven't played, feel free to share what's on your bookshelf.
I know I am remiss as well in acknowledging the gifts and awards I have received around the blogosphere. Life, O Life, when will you give me more time for the digital pleasures I crave? Soon, please soon.
