Weird little meme thingy

Garlic Dip
I found this  meme while searching for the book that used garlic dip as lube, (Laura Baumbach's A Bit of Rough if you care - better than chocolate pudding damn it!) that I did way back in the day. It amused me so I thought I'd do it again, but I'll use the last seven books I read for this site in reverse order:

The Wisdom at 21

1. Find the nearest bookshelf of your favorite reads and grab the first seven books you see.
2. Book #1: Turn to page 21. Read the 21st sentence (you may have to turn the page). Write it down.
3. Do the same with all seven books. The sentences will make a paragraph. You must write them down in the order you found them.
4. When you are finished, read over your "story" and title it.
5. Show your bibliography at the end of this meme.

Alone in a Crowd

Dan led Robin around the corner and found a large pillar in the shadows outside a closed shop to push him up against. “Of course,” he said. Unlike Rebel, Jochen didn’t seem to be having any problems concentrating on the lecture, his attention focused entirely on Robby. “It wasn’t the place that did this,” his father finally said, “or this.” “I love the pic of you.” Niall forced himself to go around the other side of the island. Johnny hadn't actually thought about being all alone out here until that very moment.

But Johnny's not alone is he? He's got Dan and Robin and Jochen and Rebel and Robby and someone's Dad and Niall. Holy crap, how can he stand being around so many people? Those sentences make no sense whatsoever. Sigh. Oh well, maybe next time.

LOL! Your paragraph has WAY too many people in it! :D

Tam said...

I know, it's like an orgy or something. Hmmm. That has potential. ;-) We've got a big bowl of dip.

Patti (@TheLoveJunkee) said...

This was a cute meme. And I have to confess, at first glance I thought you said you used chocolate pudding as lube, and I thought - wow, she's really sharing. Then I realized it was in a BOOK, lol!

Tam said...

Umm, yeah, that would be TMI. It's garlic dip. LOL So google said. :-P

Average Reader said...

Great meme, Tam! I really enjoy the thought of all those people crammed on the island together. Now, the garlic dip, though...ick! Does someone really want to put garlic there? Wouldn't that be about as bad as using salsa or something else that's too spicy?

Jenre said...

LOL, Tam. That was funny. All those different men, just like your hottie!

Tam said...

ROFL Salsa Val? Talk about getting spicy in the bedroom. LOL

I hadn't noticed Jen, when I chose that picture for the hottie. Must be serendipity. :-)

Polt said...

I bet if Dan shoved Johnny up against a pillar, he's no longer feel alone! :)

And seriously Tam, I need help with my laundry, you think you can send that guy down here for me? :)


Tam said...

Ohhh, Robin would freak if Dan stepped out with Johnny. :-)

He is lovely isn't he? After my laundry is done tonight I'll send him down your way. Hopefully he won't be too exhausted when he's ... finished. :-D

Josephine Myles said...

LOL - Robin would most certainly freak! It's good to see them appearing in a meme already :D

Garlic dip lube? I must read that novel!

Tam said...

I should edit that since they aren't being reviewed tomorrow. :-)

They were in a hurry. Dip was handy. LOL

Lily said...

I remember that garlic dip as lube scene. Definitely hot if a bit strange.

Cute meme. Lots of names but cute.

Do you think after you and Polt are finished with the hottie you could ship him down here. Tomorrow's laundry day and I'd love some help. ;)

Tam said...

The poor boys going to be EXHAUSTED Lily. LOL

You never realize how often names are used until you are counting and going "please don't say his name, please don't say his name" as you approach 20. :-)
