BEEP! BEEP! IT'S ME.

"Begin at the beginning,and go on till you come to the end: then stop." (Lewis Carroll, 1832-1896)

Alice came to a fork in the road. "Which road do I take?" she asked."Where do you want to go?" responded the Cheshire cat."I don't know," Alice answered."Then," said the cat, "it doesn't matter."

"So long as I get somewhere," Alice added as an explanation. "Oh, you're sure to do that," said the Cat, "if you only walk long enough."

"All right," said the Cat; and this time it vanished quite slowly, beginning with the end of the tail, and ending with the grin, which remained some time after the rest of it had gone. "Well! I've often seen a cat without a grin," thought Alice; "but a grin without a cat! It's the most curious thing I ever saw in my life!"

I am diagonally parked in a parallel universe. Like Arthur Dent from "Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy", if you do not have a Babel Fish in your ear this blog will be completely unintelligible to you and will read something like this: "boggle, google, snoggle, slurp, slurp, dingleberry to the power of 10". Fortunately, those who have had the Babel Fish inserted in their ear, will understood this blog perfectly. If you are familiar with this technology, you will know that the Babel Fish lives on brainwave radiation. It excretes energy in the form of exactly the correct brainwaves needed by its host to understand what was just said; or in this case, what was read. The Babel Fish, thanks to scientific research, reverses the problem defined by its namesake in the Tower of Babel, where a deity was supposedly inspired to confuse the human race by making them unable to understand each other.

What Is Written On Page 123?

Image : - "The Golden Treasury of Verse" - Palgrave
~*~
I have been meme tagged by Silly Humans
~*~
  • The rules:-
  • Find the nearest book.-
  • Name the book and the author.-
  • Turn to page 123.-
  • Go to the fifth sentence on the page.-
  • Copy out the next three sentences and post to your blog.-
  • Tag three more folks.
Ok, the book is "The Golden Treasury of the Best Songs and Lyrical Poems in the English Language" selected and arranged by Francis Turner Palgrave.
~*~
Page 123 has the second half of "Willy Drowned In Yarrow" by anonymous.
~*~
The fifth sentence is: -
~*~
'O came ye by you water-side?'
~*~
and the rest of the verse is -
~*~
'Po'd you the rose or the lily?
Or came you by yon meadow green,
Or saw you my sweet Willie?'
~*~
(and get your minds out of the gutter as Willie is the child's name. Tsk Tsk.. )
~*~
The complete poem for anyone who might be remotely interested is here.
Now I will tag anyone who would like to continue this meme. A link back to me, of course, will always be appreciated but not compulsory. :)

The lass, she cries a sad an' true
mis'ry which befell her
'Tis naught but which the lot of us
shall know as Life require'
