All right! So, I thought it would be fun to start a meme. Usually I just pick thm up from you, but I think it's time to just go ahead and start one. ;)


Grab the nearest book!

From either the page you are on if you are reading it currently, or go to page 130 and type out in quotation marks the first two spoken sentences any characters have. Should make for a fun dialogue. ;) If it's awesome I'll repost it in a cut entry for all to read. ;)

And I've been meaning to post this for ages! The Russian Alien Monster Fish! Apparently, a fish that was caught, and promptly eaten by Russian sailors, but that has some extra terrestrial charcteristics. What thinkest thou?

Mine's Boring!

If you set this feature to on, Stratagy asks callers for their name & company. Without the callers knowledge, the system relays that information to you & provides you with special options to handle the call.

My book I have at work doesn't have that many pages, so I will pick one at random, which is really more fitting for you (o:

"My clothes?"

"These are your clothes now," said the little hairy man, proudly. "I traded 'em. This stuff's better quality- see, it won't rip and tear as easy- and it's neither tattered nor torn, and withal, you'll not stick out so much as a stranger. This is what people wears hereabouts, y'see."

My page 130 didn't have any speaking. So I just went to the closest page I could find that did.

"...but he, proud of his might, trial made of me, grasp'd ready-handed, his glove hung wide and wondrous, with curions bindings fast; it was cunningly all prepared with a devil's crafts and dragon's skins: he me there within unsinning, the brutal perpetrator, would make one of many..."

--Beowulf

There's a single looooong sentence that spans about two and a half pages, so I just took the first few clauses that could stand fairly well on their own. D: Sorry that it's like a paragraph.

But I loves me my Beowulf. <3

...And as for the fish: There are some weird animals out there, for serious. Like, they make you think, the hell are those things doing on Earth? x3;; That right there is one of them. XD;;

This risotto is heavier on the vegetables (the winter squash and the onion) than is traditional, but it is a favorite autumn and winter variation. Use less squash if you like, but we feel the extra contributes a lovely flavor and color along with a nutritional boost.
