Another Meme - consider yourself tagged

Besides spending my day trying to rid the house of burnt potato smell (darn microwave never worked right in this house!), cleaning house, taking kids to this that and the other place, fetching forgotten projects and taking those to school too, calling and receiving calls from the dentist and the coach and the school, and sorting through and packing crap so that I can move in a month...there isn't really much to do around here. lol

Anyhow, it's much more fun to blog and ignore my duties for a few more minutes at least.

Sooooo, with that in mind...if *I* can take a second to play, you can too. Here is a meme from Aerin's blog In Search of Giants. Play along if you want.

Side note: some of y'all, friends, really need to create a public blog so you can play along too!

1. Pick up the nearest book.
2. Open to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences, uhm, sentences six, seven and eight.
5. Tag five people and post a comment to the blogger who tagged you.

My nearest book is totally boring. It is Write Source 2000 - not even the latest version, I am sure!

Here is the text:

Also, try writing about your work to sort out your thoughts and feelings about it. See what your classmates and teacher think of your writing. And make sure to consult your handbook for advice and writing models.


There you have it. Now it is your turn.

I'm at work. I'm also bad at following directions.

Java, An Introduction to Computing

1. expression is evaluated, producing a value v.

2. The value of variable is changed to v.

3. The = operator produces the value v.

Are Men Necessary?

So that (plus the testosterone, of course) makes men more assertive. Unafraid to take risks and willing to take a shot at anything, anytime. Women, being tuned in to the more cautious (and more creative) right brain, are more reluctant to do something unless they're sure they're going to get it right.

Thanks for playing, Anthony! I knew you would have some interesting reads there. :)

Yeah, Aerin - my other choice was just as interesting: Writers Inc. lol

(don't encourage him.)

The Calvinistic Concept of Culture

Indirectly the Christian faith has caused life to flourish. The appearance of the Word and of the church strengthens, enriches, elevates life in general. The church by its influence has made history universally human; it has catholicized the human spirit.

is it still my turn? it keeps saying that, and there are a lot of books here.

An Introduction to Object-Oriented Analysis: Objects in Plain English

Our registrar's solution was to ask people for something every working Canadian has, their "Social Insurance Number" (SIN). That fixed most of the problems. But I have been unable to ascertain whether the SIN is truly unique.
