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.

Gryphic's had her say, but now it's my turn. And I fully defend the word "color" and it's proper spelling.

Pretty much my biggest argument is the pronunciation. Color is pronounced color, not coloure. Thus, it should be spelled color and not colour. Another thing. Contrary to what Gryphic has ranted about, the letter U is actually an ugly letter, at least it is in my view. Why should it be placed into a word that creates such beauty and design?

NOTE: This is simply a rant. Please do not take this post entirely seriously.

Oh, and by the way, I would just like to point out that the Golden Compass is not The Golden Compass. The book is called Northern Lights and the device is called an alethiometer. Normally I'm on the American's side of things as I'm American, but there isn't a single instance of a golden compass in that book. So there.

I don't know! - 0 vote(s)! Wo bu shi dao wa! - 1 vote(s)! What? - 3 vote(s)! That's an interesting question! - 3 vote(s)!

I'd also like to say, that for this week's also-random poll, you are required to have this image inside your brain to answer this week's poll. The above image can be clicked on to increase the size.

Done that? Now that you have, vote on this week's RANDOM poll!
