Meme baton


I'm not sure what a meme is but I know what to do with a baton. Since my dear friend, Patti, has passed it to me and I always do what she tells me here goes:

You are stuck inside Fahrenheit 451. Which book do you want to be?

The Foot book by Dr. Seuss since I think I already know it by heart.

Have you ever had a crush on a fictional character?

I named my only son Luke, after the name of the brother in Prince of Tides. But it's been so long since I've read it I would have to go back and read it again to figure out why. I was mesmerized by that book though I remember.

The last book you bought is?

Dogs of Babel by Carolyn Parkhurst- I must be honest tho, I bought it at a discount store because it was cheap and looked like a good beach book.

What are you currently reading?

Here's your Hat What's your Hurry by Elizabeth McCracken(short stories) which I bought at a yard sale 2 wks. ago for 10 cents. I liked the title (its' an expression I use actually). I also liked the title of the 1st story - It's bad luck to die, which was different at first but just okay. The book I'm going to read next it sitting on my night table - it's Anita Shreve's Weight of Water. I really wanted to read the one about the old friends that meet again on the beach but my local librarian told me I had to read this one first. Not sure I should've listenend to her, I still want to read that other one.

Five books you would take to a deserted island

Oh boy -I hate this question. You know how I hate making decisions so I will just be vague.
1. Something Zen-like or spiritual
2. Something by Tolstoy or another classic I haven't read
3. A poetry book by Stanley Kunitz.
4. One of the 12 writing books staring down at me from this desk because now I will have time to read it and maybe actually "just do it".
5. And maybe one of my Piano books, also gathering dust. Alot of good that would be on a deserted island; unless the luxury liner that I was on - the grand piano was my means of escape.

Who are you going to pass this stick to (3 persons) and why?

I'm going to pass the meme baton to Jeannette at Musings of a Middle-aged Woman cause hers is one of my favorite blogs - i love her wit and down to earthinesss. And to my co-worker Robin Puccini at cc jellybeans and also dotmoms, which was recently written up (as well as Robin) in Forbes. And to Michelle at Writersattic because I recently entered a contest on her very interesting website. My apologizes to the above on my not being blog savvy enough to create links to their blogs. Hopefully with Robin's help I will be able to in the near future.

Great responses. Especially "The Foot Book". I think I know that one by heart, too.
