book meme

 1. Grab a book near you.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 3 sentences on your blog 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.

I said I’d be there with her, and it would be quick, and then we could both go out somewhere and have a couple of dozen extremely potent drinks, and pretend the past was smoother and kinder than flawless recall permitted us to misremember it.
     And the last of the limousines was waiting, and we let the chauffer hold the door for us, and we got in and went off to Jimmy’s baronial mansion to hear the reading of the will.
      And Kerch, left behind in the rain, went with us.

See? I'm not dead. I just posted a meme. Not that there isn't other stuff to talk about, but. Later. I'll post something substantial later! Also, how is it I don't have book icons?

Oh, right. It was Shatterday by Harlan Ellison. It's been hanging around next to my computer because I haven't read it yet- I find Harlan can be too depressing for me and it's been a long time since I thought I could handle more depressing. Some of his short stories I like but others fall in the 'UGH I wish I hadn't read that' category.
