Friday, er, Saturday Evening Book Meme Fun

I got tagged by Emily at Remodeling This Life to participate in a Friday Evening Book Meme Fun. I am supposed to grab the nearest book and look to page 123 and the 5th sentence and then type the next 3 sentences. Good thing there were none of my husband’s comic books graphic novels (insert eyeroll) lying nearby or I may have fallen asleep by the 2nd sentence.

Luckily I went to the library today and checked out the latest Stephanie Plum novel by Janet Evanovich, Plum Lucky.

If you’ve never read any of this terrificly fun series, I urge you to do so.

Anyway, here we go. Page 123:

When I got out, I felt energized. “I got an idea while you were in the shower,” Diesel said. “We need money, right?”

Not the most exciting or representative three lines, but I’ll take ’em.

So, now to tag someone else.

Who to tag? Who to tag?

I shall tag:

Learningwoman (My guess is we’ll either hear a little bit about Poetry or Australia)

Good Fountain (I have a feeling we’ll be hearing about hyperlexia)

Ramblings of a Pseudo Intellectual (Porn. Definitely porn.)

One More Thing (Depends on where she is when she writes it, but I’m guessing it’ll be How to Knit a Shroud for your Mother-In-Law)

And you. If you’re game…

Guilty Pleasure – Tila’s Shot at Love Finale

Shhhh. Don’t tell anyone.

I cannot wait until tonight, when Tila Tequila lets us know which way her wind blows, at least for now.

Tila, someone famous for being on MySpace, for goodness sake, extended her 15 minutes of Warholian fame by signing on with MTV to become the Bi-chelorette on A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila. The show’s hook?

Tila is bisexual. So twelve males and twelve females compete for a Shot at Tila. Yes. And as the prospective winners were winnowed down to the final two, they all had to sleep on one very large bed.


So, now that Tila eliminated all but two, will she choose the mostly-male Bobby, a twenty-something student of…something, who apparently has stolen Richard Dreyfus’ voice? Or Dani, a firefighter with a somewhat odd forehead curl, who is decidedly NOT a “lipstick lesbian” (I just looove that term!), in whom she could theoretically get the best of both worlds?

And am I the only one who didn’t miss the irony that the two finalists have sexually ambiguous names?

Oh, yes. A very guilty pleasure. And I’m apparently not the only one, if the frequency of the reruns and the pre-finale hype are any indication.

My normally quite sane sister confided to me that she watches the show, and that she’s rooting for Dani. When I told her that Dani’s firehouse is less than a mile from my home she advised me to start a fire in the hopes that Dani would be the one to come and put out the flames, just so I could tell her my sister was rooting for her.


Not that I haven’t thought about dropping by the firehouse so that my son could see the fire trucks, and if Dani just happens to be there…but I SWEAR I was thinking about it even before I ever heard of Dani!

So, who am I rooting for? Bobby. Why?

I like Dani. I think she seems really, really sweet. And I think she deserves better than Tila, who still doesn’t know which way she’s twisting.

And I hate the haircut, Tila. HATE IT.

I will be watching tonight.

I know you will be too, you naughty, naughty guilty pleasure seeker, you.
