A Meme on Monday

The adorable Cheysuli tagged me for the Book Meme.

Here are the rules:

1. Pick up the nearest book.

2. Open to page 123

3. Find the fifth sentence.

4. Post the next three sentences.

5. Tag five people and post a comment to Mickey once you have posted it.

Due to the fact that my human is fat AND incredibly stupid, I found it exceedingly difficult to lay my paws on any good books. After hours of hunting, I eventually dug out one of my favourite novels:

A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett.

The content of this book is inspirational. A young lady is thrust into a life of starvation and drudgery. As unbearable as it becomes,she uses her resourcefulness to make her dreadful situation better. Sound familiar?

But I digress - as per the meme, the following sentences are from the book:

' It was not a very long chase. The Monkey prolonged it a few minutes evidently for the fun of it, but presently he sprang chattering onto Ram Dass's shoulder and sat there chattering and clinging to his neck with a weird little skinny arm. Ram Dass thanked Sara profoundly.'

Now, I should like to tag:

Daisy the curly cat

Storm the Furry Fighter

Jimmy Joe


Marie the Defender

I haven't read that book. I should read it so I will have more insight into your poor horrible life!

Daisy said...

I like those sentences, because monkeys are funny! We have been very, very, very bad about doing Memes lately. I will try my hardest to do it though!

Bendrix: I wanna chase a monkey! I wanna chase a monkey! I could teach him how to get me treats and food from the fridge. Since monkeys already thro poo, I wouldn't even have to exert myself for revenge! The monkey could do it!

Oh yes, we can see the similarity with your life of starvation and drudgery. Do you think this will embarrass your human into making improvements to your sad and deprived life? Somehow we doubt it.

Oh how you suffer Yao-lin, just like our Tigmut'hep does here... ;) Maybe you two should get together and write a book on slave training and making life good for a needy cat!

Diamond Emerald-Eyes said...

I simply cannot understand why you like that book Yao-lin, although that story sounds REALLY familier....
