Julie from Julie's Jewels & Junque tagged me with this meme...so since I LURVES her so, I will do it now...

The Rules Are As Such:

Pass it on to five other bloggers, and tell them to open the nearest book to page 46. Write out the fifth sentence on that page, and also the next two to five sentences. The closest book, not the coolest, or the one you think will sound the best. THE CLOSEST.

I am not reading anything at the moment, but the last book I read is right here, so....from Vince Flynn, the book is "Protect & Defend"

Garret could sense the anger in Rapp's voice. "It was bad. It was wrong. I should have stopped him."

"You're damn right you should have, you f**king sociopath." Rapp withdrew the blade from Garret's throat and put it back in its scabbard. With his left hand still holding on to Garret's hair, he said, "And that's why I'm going to kill you."

HA! A great tease for a great book...does Rapp really kill Garret? Go pick up the book and find out!

Second day of December...last year I got to help Nancy and the boys decorate their Christmas tree...this year - this coming weekend - we buy a tree and decorate their home.

I did bring a bunch of Christmas lights with me when I moved, but they have stayed in their container for the last two years...

Let's break out the box and see what we have...

Humm...looks like some of them work, let's see



OMG!!! The lights are alive...they have me!



Someone call the "Light Police"...hellllllp!



The scene of the crime...a poor boy done in by rampaging Christmas lights...
OH the cruelty of it all!




Radio Happy Hour
Coming up this week on DR. BLOGSTEIN’S RADIO HAPPY HOUR:
(Live on Tuesday December 2 at 9PM
ET and forever archived at BlogTalkRadio.)

Do you ever wonder how the likes of Andrew W.K., Lamb of God, and Slipknot can perform night after night without blowing out their vocal chords? Its an art. An art taught by Melissa Cross, the “Queen of the Scream.”

According to Entertainment Weekly: “Cross is a cheery, red-haired, classically trained voice teacher with a peculiar niche: She caters to the most extreme segments of the metal, punk, and hardcore scenes, teaching performers how to growl like grizzlies, bark like pit bulls, and bellow like tortured children of Beelzebub. All without blowing out their vocal cords.”

She’ll join Dr. B, Dangerous Lee and Vinny Bond to teach us all how to scream like a rock star.

how-to-profit-rapture.jpgThen, the economy may be bad now, but if some scripture is correct, the upcoming Rapture offers a series of amazing opportunities for financial gains for those of us that will surely be left behind.

Steve and Evie Levy, authors of How to Profit from the Coming Rapture: Getting Ahead When You’re Left Behind, will join us to instruct those listeners who will certainly be left behind (Jews, Catholics, Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus, less ardent Protestants, and many more) on how to exploit the inevitable demise of the world in order to make a tidy profit, for as the authors say:
“Sure, the rivers and seas will run with blood, locusts will swarm, mountains will move all over the place, and famine will strike. But for the five billion of us left behind, the post-Rapture world will be a time of even more unique investment opportunities.”

All that plus, plus Vinny sits on his Big Leather Couch to chat live with the listeners, Shawn Amos returns with another GetBack.com Pop Quiz, Justin the Weatherman may come back, and we’ll take your calls at 646-652-4804.

Join us live every Tuesday night at 9PM ET. The Radio Happy Hour Lounge-a live, interactive chat room during show time! It’s the show within the show!

  18. Travis Says:
  19. HA! The attack of the light brigade!

  24. Micky-T Says:

    MICKEY-T: Be afraid of the lights...be very afraid!

     
  28. DrillerAA Says:
  29. I know just how you feel with those Christmas lights. However, I did get them sorted out and installed. They are also the subject of my Ruby Tuesday.

     
  30. I recognize that part of Protect & Defend even though I read it a year and a half ago. Garrett was on his yacht and had just got up in the middle of the night to pee only to find Mitch Rapp waiting for him. NICE!!! hahahaha

     
  31. On the wall in the background of the first photo there is a framed picture of what looks like you as a short order cook. Whats the story behind that?

     
  32. Tug Says:
  33. Glad to see you won the battle of the lights & are here to answer comments... ;-)

  36. Dana Says:
  37. He's dead, Jim. Killed by the Christmas lights.

     
  38. Fred Says:
  39. The picture of you before you "died" is priceless. We've settled on the lights that can be thrown like nets over the bushes and shrubs. They are sooo easy.

    The tree goes up later this month so D1 can help when she gets home from FSU.

     
  40. Long live the Boss...

     
  41. Julie Says:
  42. Oh Vinny...you crack me up! You and a silly little strand of lights! HAH!

    Good job on the sexy bookworm meme! Thanks!

     
  43. Starrlight Says:
  44. You are such a ham :P

     
  45. Patti Says:
  46. Those photos of you and the lights are too funny. Fred called one of them priceless, and I think all of them are!

    I guess we never have to tell you to "lighten up"

    tee hee

    thanks for the giggles

     
  47. Dana Says:
  48. I know I'm running late, but I couldn't let those wonderful light pictures go without mention. I might have to steal that idea for the Christmas themed HNT!

     
  49. Bond Says:
  50. DANA: bwahahahaah

    BUD: agreed

    JULIE: That was my desire...so I succeeded! Thanks on the meme
