A Meme, an Award and an Earworm

A Meme:

Both Gautami & Marg tagged me for the 123 Meme.

1). Pick up the nearest book (of at least
123 pages)
2). Open the book to page 123
3). Find the fifth sentence
4). Post the next three sentences
5). Tag five people

From Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie:

"No,"said Poirot. "Two people who saw nothing and heard nothing."
"Shall we see the Italian?"


I just bought this from the used bookstore and found a small card with 'To Nanny I Love You Holly' inside. Aww. Hope Nanny liked it.

Now who do I tag:


An Award:

Kristina from Kristina's Favorites was nice enough to think of me when she was giving her picks for the You Make My Day Award. Thank you Kristina! You made my day too and you have an awesome name ;)

Now to pick 10 bloggers who make my day. This is tough. There are so many that make my day. I don't think anyone has tagged these people.

Pardon My French: Deb's stories of an American Mommy in France are both funny and touching.

Reading Adventures: Marg is a romantic soul. Everyone needs a little romance in their life.

Writing Wrongs: Charity's insights make me laugh.

Aquatique: She knits, reads and takes gorgeous pictures.

Orange Blossom Goddess: I enjoy Heather's quotes and those pinup girl pictures (I wish we wore hats like that again). Plus she's the author of The Library Ladder.

Kimbooktu: Love those book gadgets.

Karen: She shares a blog with other mystery writers: First Offenders. Karen's comments here make my day.

Bookgirl's Nightstand: Pretty blog and great reviews.

So Many Precious Books...: Ditto for Teddy's blog.

Whew one more...

Stephanie's Confessions: Stephanie's reviews make me smile.

Okay. Pay it forward.

An Earworm:

Do you know what an earworm is? It's a song stuck in a person's head. Ever since seeing this commercial (below), I've been driving everyone in my house crazy with my warbling "Rock me gently..." Come join me, won't you?


  1. Thanks for the multiple tags. It looks like I need to get busy.

  2. I love finding inscriptions in books. Hope you enjoy the mystery.
    Thank you for the award - you make my day too! :)

  3. I read Murder on the Orient Express long time back. I even saw the movie. Still I do not recall anything. Time to pick it up again.

    Thanks for playing along. Congrats for the award.

  4. Thanks for tagging me Chris, however I was already tagged. I did page 123 of Sula.

  5. Your blog makes my day, too, Chris! It's one of the first blogs I stop at every dayy!

  6. Thanks, Chris! :D I hope you're having a good weekend.

  7. This is one of the few commercials I've actually seen, though the song has yet to get stuck in my head. :-) I looove this commercial, makes me smile every time the wolf (?) drops in and eats the bird and the guy looks back at him like "Hey! What'd you eat the bird for?" hehehehe

  8. Thanks! I really miss commercials. That was funny, except I think I have an earworm, too.

  9. This is weird!.. just yesterday I watched Murder on the Orient Express on television!

  10. "No,"said Poirot. "Two people who saw nothing and heard nothing."
    "Shall we see the Italian?"

    What a great way of picking out a 'story starter' or similar writers' exercise prompt.

  11. Oh, you just made my week! Thank you!

  12. Sooooooooooooooo sweet! Thank you! You made my day!!!!

  13. Now I've got that song earworminh in my head. FUN!
