123 Book Meme

I’ve been tagged by Bruce and I still don’t quite understand what the heck a ‘meme‘ is and am not really sure where the heck that word came from (see definition #7 at the bottom) but, I’ll go ahead and play.

The rules.

1) Grab the nearest book of 123 pages or more.
2) Open it to page 123.
3) Find the first 5 sentences and write them down.
4) Invite five friends to do the same

So, here goes . . . and I’m in my office at work so this might prove to be fruitless or at least not very interesting.

From page 123 of the Backstage Handbook: an Illustrated Almanac of Technical Information third edition. Nothing deep just nuts and bolts book for the theater industry.

Enjoy:

Good times . . . I hereby tag Colin over at Reluctant Faith, Mike at Chez Bez, Dwight over at OTSO, Alan the renderer over at Renderings, and finally my bro who writes a hockey blog (for a horrible team …tee hee) here.
