This Meme is easy as 1-2-3

Alrighty Jeff, here I am to do the tag, Metal Gear Solid 4 will still be there after I'm finished (oh and I beat it anyways). LOL

Jeff Tagged me to do a book meme. Here are the rules (copy 'n paste):

1. Grab the nearest book. If you are currently reading something, that'll be fine too.

2. Open the book to page 123.

3. Find the fifth sentence.

4. Post the text of the next 4 sentences on your Blog along with these instructions.

5. Don't you dare dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in your closet I know that is what you were thinking!

6. Tag 5 people.

Here is the passage:

"Well, Lizzie, despite your best efforts, you're giving me plenty of reasons to enlist your services. Yet you want me to withdraw my application? Why? Her eyes grew rueful. "Because of Adam," she said. Dear Jesus Suddenly, I couldn't breathe.

(Note that page 123 was the end of a chapter so I couldn't go five sentences down and and use the next four sentences. I went two sentences down and used the rest of the chapter LMAO.)

This passage was from the book "Kill Me", by Stephen White. I probably would not have noticed it if the book wasn't bright yellow, and didn't have a bullet on the cover. I'm glad I did though, because it was pretty interesting and it kept me on my toes. Kill Me is about a Rich Man realizes that he doesn't want to die a slow painful death (conscious or not). So he hires an organization to kill him if he ever gets a severely injured, or diminished by disease. The catch is that once he enters into the contract, its irrevocable. When our anonymous narrator gets an illness he realizes he has one more thing to do before the "Death Angels" carry out there "end of life services". Although i'm not a big fan of the protagonist being killed off in any kind of media (Snake...Sniff...Sniff) I still liked this book.

I'm only going to tag three people. I don't know if they did this before or not, but either way I wouldn't know unless I try. I tag Chris, Chelle, and Shari.

P.S. While i'm at it, to anyone who reads this, is there a character who out there that perished that you wished would still be "alive"??? (Tag)

Good job, Charles. Oh, and yeah, in my first 123 meme, I read Marley and Me. Marley, the dog, of course died in the end. I wished he was still alive. ;)

To answer your last question, yes, I'd love for Big Dan and Li'l Anne to have survived "Where the Red Fern Grows" but if they had, the book would have been forgetable.

When was it?

OMG, Chris totally stole my answer! Oh I so loved "Where the Red Fern Grows". I remember crying in school and my teacher rushing over. When I showed her the cover of the book, she was like "Oh yeah, that's a tough one. I cried, too."

I also hated when Claudia died in Interview with a Vampire. She was kind of a spiteful brat, but I liked her.
