Of Books and Memes

Recently, I (GAH) read an article on CrunchBang called Closest Booky Wook. I like Memes, so I'm going to help propagate this one, as well as sending a Pingback. Why do I like Pingbacks so much?

Anyway, as per the instructions, here are the rules, repeated:

  1. Grab the nearest book.
  2. Open it to page 56.
  3. Find the fifth sentence.
  4. Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
  5. Don't dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST.

I tried this instantly, with strange results. First of all, the first book I found didn't even have 56 pages. The second book I found didn't have any words on page 56. I finally found a book that fit the critera, and here's the quote:

Comprised of a basic Cross stitch with each of the four legs tacked down by a short stitch.

Encyclopedia of Needlework by Donna Kooler

....kay. I just posted the encyclopedia description of a "Rice" needlepoint stitch on Four Island. Strange.

Grr... my pingback doesn't seem to have pingbacked... Also, you should post a tutorial about how to make a blog engine.

I noticed that the Pingback wasn't there. That is annoying, 'cause I looove Pingbacks. I'll manually add the Pingback into the system. I wonder if the problem was at my end or your end.

I will be posting such a tutorial, as a series of posts. I have to write the actual posts first, though, and I have been busy as of late because of many things such as the TGS website, this game I'm working on and other stuffs.

Are people becoming bored of Four Island? I ask because there is never any activity on it anymore, and it makes me sad :(
