Lou, all the way over in Denmark, tagged me with the Bookworm Award. Along with the lovely picture, it requires you to:
Open the closest book to you, not your favorite or most intellectual book, but the book closest to you at the moment, to page 56. Write out the fifth sentence, as well as two to five sentences following there.
I am still reading You Shall Know Our Velocity! Some of you may be familiar with it from my Tuesday Teaser, although it didn't really say much. So here's a little more:
"We wanted to swim but we would have to find a beach. And we needed to move. We had a plan.
First, drive south along the coast to the Sine-Saloum Delta to see mangroves and crocodiles, then
Slip into The Gambia, visas be damned, then
Follow the River Gambja up to Georgetown, then
Swing back up, into southern Senegal and
Back in time for a late-evening flight to, ideally, Moscow. Easy."
That might seem like more than five sentences, but I was counting periods, not capitals.
I'm also supposed to tag five people, so here goes:
I didn't get any reading in on the drive home from Sacramento (it's about a five hour drive...I could've finished my book!) because I was a nice person and drove all the way. I was kinda enjoying the rental car, since they gave us a Nissan Altima. It was comfy and zippy and oh so easy to drive. I've always been a die-hard Honda fan, but this car may be a serious contender when it's time to go new car shopping.
In the good news department, I am home for good (except for a short girlfriend getaway planned for next month). My work trips are all done, and I plan on being a serious homebody for the next few months. Hopefully, I'll get back into bookworm mode, too, so I can live up to my award.
