I got tagged .... so it's MEMETIME!

So, I went and fell into this over on ghostofzuul's journal ...

The details:
1. Grab the nearest book. Beat it against the desk until it submits. {I like this addition, but it's not mine!}
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 4 sentences on your LJ along with these instructions.
5. Don't you dare dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest.
6. Tag five people (You're reading this .. you'll do.)

If only people were aware of the thoughts injected into their minds while they slept! The dream state is the birthplace of much of the future.

But he who is guided by thoughts unrecognized is led into situations that will later be interpreted as "fate," "God's will," or accident.

So there you go! Hey, it could be worse ... if I reached out past my computer onto the book shelves beyond there's a stack of my old poetry books, so you might have been treated to some gratuitous angst!

Who's gonna play?
