Due to complete lack of inspiration and way-the-heck-ready-for-the-weekend-ness on my part, I give you only something stolen from a new-to-me blog, Little Turtle Knits. It's the Bookish Game!

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
5. Don't search around and look for the "coolest" book you can find. Do what's actually next to you

The sensation from the fire, that warmth which affects us in a manner wholly different from touch, and yet it is material like the blow of a stone.
(from Pascal's Thoughts, translated by W.F. Trotter)

What are yours?

It's Stitch 'n Bitch. Pg 123 is a photo page of scarves. It sounds like some kind of sexy costume if you don't know it's about knitting . . .

"Anthropological studies indicate that this volitional level of self-consciousness was not part of the human experience prior to 7000 B.C.E., but it had become the almost universal experience by the year 1000 B.C.E." —Living in Sin?, John Shelby Spong

P.S. - Mark was just asking about that afghan the other day.... ; )

"The character of these traces was different from the quality of those Marjorie had left on the toad pin and the car door, for in these he sensed a malignancy, as though they had been laid down by a spirit that passed this way on cloven hooves."
