Where was "tagged" today by the web's slickest Larch blog, Pruned. The rules of the tagging game are as follows:

1. Pick up the nearest book (of at least 123 pages).
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people.

The following is a passage from p. 123 of the book Michael Palin Diaries 1969-1979: The Python Years. Monty Python movies are big in my family; I got the book from my cousin for Christmas. Haven't started reading it yet, but it's been on my bedstand for two months. And today, it found an unpredicted purpose...

When we arrived there, about thirty people were sitting around tables in a dark basement, drinking. Slowly but surely, it became obvious that we could not get away without some sort of cabaret. Eric and Tony took the microphone and, after some opening banter, asked for questions.

And there you have it. Five victims: BLYGAD, Line of Sight, Brand Avenue, Landscape+Urbanism, and Social Practice. Have at it, folks.
