Usually blog memes are about the same. I think the one I've seen most is "Tell your readers ten weird things about yourself." Now, I don't consider myself to be all that ordinary, exactly, but I had a hard time coming up with weird facts about me that other people would find remotely interesting--or that aren't deeply embarrassing or just gross (yes, everybody has something like that). So up until this point I have decided to spare you the tedium of discovering (or being tagged for) a meme on this blog.
All of that changes today!
I've been tagged for a meme that actually seems worthwhile--and doesn't require a lot of navel-gazing on my part as far as divining what you might find fascinating about little ol' moi. It's not about me at all! Yay!
So, here goes. The rules are:
1. Pick up the nearest book (of at least 123 pages).
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find sentences 5,6, and 7, and post them.
4. Tag five people.
Here's mine, from Animal, Vegetable, Miracle, by Barbara Kingsolver:
"Local food is a handshake deal in a community gathering place. It involves farmers with first names, who show up week after week. It means an open-door policy on the fields, where neighborhood buyers are welcome to come have a look, and pick their food from the vine."
"Local is farmers growing trust."
Can't wait for the growing season!
