Eek, I've been tagged

Thanks, Sieg, for thinking of me.

My first 'meme':
The Rules:

1. Pick up the nearest book of 123 (or more) pages.
Nigel Nicholson's memoirs, Long Life. I already read it, but it was at the top of the nearest book pile. 'Alice in Wonderland' is currently residing under the bed.

2. Open the book to page 123 and find the 5th sentence.
'We were well aware that so controversial an order could have not originated with 6th Armoured or 5th Corps.'

3. Post the next 3 sentences:
'For all we knew, it might have come down from the Chiefs of Staff in Washington, who were anxious to appease Tito. That he started to withdraw his partisans from Carinthia on the very day, 19 May, when the repatriations began, strengthened our suspicion that a deal had been struck at the highest level. In my summary of the campaign, written after the crsis was over, I said: "As the world now knows, Tito agreed to withdraw his partisans..."'

I tag:
- Lesbian Dad
- The Reluctant Blogger
- Piglet Wildebeest
- Fresco
- Dykes and the City

Only because I'm really interested to know what people read.

Well, I’m glad you like your gym thingy! You’re not begging for mercy then? (Yeah yeah yeah)
Tomorrow, I’m taking on a new gym adventure myself.
Sadly, people in gyms / showers,/saunas are never as hot as in our fantasies, are they?

Now then – ‘Sensaties’ by Oscar Van den Boogaard is incidentally lying on my desk (1) because I had to quote something out of it for a next post.
2) Page 123, 5th sentence: “Bergen van watten.”
3) Next 3 sentences: “SkiĆ«nde kabouters. Een huis van snoep. Kaarsen in houten paddestoelen en als ijsbaan een spiegel bespoten met kunstsneeuw.”
