I've been tagged!

No, not in the catch-and-release-of-polar-bears-to-determine-migratory-habits sort of way.

By way of the sfsignal.com meme (and probably going back quite aways further), trusted advisor and book guy Matt Staggs has tagged me with this instruction:

"To participate, you grab any book, go to page 123, find the fifth sentence, and blog it. Then tag five people."

So, the novel in question is George Pelecanos' Hard Revolution:

"Strange was under the wheel of his '65 Impala, a blue clean-line V-8 he'd purchased used at Curtis Chevrolet."

Don't know what I should do with that, but I am enjoying the Hell out of the novel.

And I hereby tag:

Don't really have a way to do this on Bookgasm, so I'll respond here:

"He speaks with a thick accent, sports a big furry beard, and wears black robes."

Yes! My plan was successful: you've been tagged, and with any luck at all you won't notice the subdermal RFID device for months....

Damn you, Octopus! Once more I have fallen for your evil and essentially unmotivated plans of destruction! OCTOPUS!!!

And Rod: sorry, didn't think about the consequences. Apologies all around. And I'm not sure to whom that sentence refers to, but it sure sounds like my 9th grade German teacher.

There's no need to apologize, silly Canadian.
