Yes, it's gone 1am.

Yes, I am up and awake, though have only been in for half an hour or so... I might not tell you where I've been, just to feed the rumour mill - it's been very quiet of late.

Anyway, Nutty Mummy tagged me from her new shiny blog layout (go peek!) with a Meme to show how geeky I am...

Page 123
The Rules:

1. Pick up the nearest book of 123 (or more) pages.
JRR Tolkien - The Hobbit
Actually, this was sitting on top of my copy of The Monster Manual II, for Dungeons and Dragons which were the two closest books of 123 pages (or more). Other nearby books, much like Nutty Mummy, were "We're Going on a Bear Hunt" "Eat Your Dinner!" and "My First Book of Bears"

I sense a bear theme in this house... Hmmm...

2. Open the book to page 123 and find the 5th sentence.
"Still you are safer going north, even though you seem to be going back nearer to their strongholds; for that is what they will least expect, and they will have the longer ride to catch you."

3. Post the next 3 sentences.
"Be off now as quick as you may!"
That is why they were now riding in silence, galloping whenever the ground was grassy and smooth, with the mountains dark on their left, and in the distance the line of the river with its trees drawing even closer. The sun had only just turned west when they started, and till evening it lay golden on the land about them.

4. Tag 5 people.
Hmmm, so many people. I tag Posh Totty at her Palace, Tim at the Special Zipper (so the damn convict can post for a change...), Matt at his journal, Gman at Man Overboard and, lastly... erm... Christine at her new home. because she needs to post more too, obviously.

Of course, the rest of you can do it too if you so wish!


You Are 2:11 a.m.

Your time of day has a split personality -- sometimes it's sweat-streaked and loud, and you're on the dance floor, getting your third wind, and shouting lyrics like you'll never run out of energy. You are the time of night that carves itself into your memory forever, because you'll never forget how much you love these people and this moment and this song. It's not always about unforgettable parties, though. Sometimes your late night (err? early morning) burst of energy happens when you're home alone. Those are the times when you say, "I flat out refuse to go to sleep until I finish reading this book, or typing this page, or reorganizing my entire closet." In either case, you are the time of night when it feels sort of forbidden to be awake, but you love accomplishing something special long after everyone else went to bed. And hey -- you can always catch up on sleep tomorrow, right?

You're a Caramel Macchiato!

You're the nice warm hug of coffee drinks. We're picturing you hanging out on an old velvet couch with your version of the Friends gang in a coffee place where the barista knows you by name. Your personality is sweet, friendly, and full of energy. You seem like a dependable person who'll stick by your friends no matter what, and who always knows just what they need -- whether it's good advice, a tissue... or a caramel macchiato.
