123 Book Meme

I was tagged below by Chris with this meme, courtesy of Toast (and Maurinsky).

1. Grab the nearest book (at least 123 pages long).
2. Open to page 123.
3. Go down to the 5th sentence.
4. Type in the following 3 sentences.
5. Tag 5 people.

From The Amber Spyglass by Philip Pullman:

They were quite close now, and seeing what was coming, some of the villagers looked up and called to each other to look. The party from the road slowed to a halt, and Mary clambered stiffly down, knowing that she would ache later on.
"Thank you," she said to her...her what?

I'm not tagging anyone, feel free to join in if you like.

Are you at work?

John Howard said...

Yes, I bring books with me. This one happened to be close than Mastering XSLT, which is the next closest.

John Howard said...

But in case anyone's dying to know, here's what you would have been treated to by Mastering XSLT.


Substituting [ and ] for < and >. Though I'm not sure if any of that really counts as sentences, so maybe it would be:

The root node can also have comment and processing instruction nodes as children. The string-value of the root node is the total of all the string-values of its descendants.
Considering Listing 4.2, there would be one node that represents the entire document.

You made the better choice the first time. You know, you work 2 minutes from me (if there is heavy traffic). The 3 of us need to do lunch next week.

Chris Howard said...

What's wrong with XSLT? Looks very XML-ish.

John Howard said...

I don't know what you mean by what's wrong with it. It is very XMLish. It's used to transform XML Data, usually into HTML, but I use it to transform one XML format into another.

Chris Howard said...

I don't know what you mean by what's wrong with it.

Because Michelline said you made a better choice with the first book.

John Howard said...

Oh, I see.

From "The Nine Nations of North America," the following passage is a discussion why NYC is an aberration from his overall view of North America.

"The logic was impeccible. It's the least that could be done. The whole world, after all, was divided into New York and not-New York." [Discussing making NYC the 51st state.]

Oh, this is nightshift. I always have trouble when I try to sign in, so I just do anonymous here.
