shaken & stirred

welcome to my martini glass


breaking in with very little cause

The latest m-word craze (feels recycled, but I like this one) and I'm CHANGING it slightly:

Grab the nearest book at hand. Go to page 42. Select your favorite sentence. Post it and the name of the book in your journal (add these instructions to your journal as well).

There are two equidistant books, so two sentences. The first is from Tanith Lee's Piratica, Being a Daring Tale of a Singular Girl's Adventure Upon the High Seas:

Up she went, hand over hand, quicksilver in the sunlight, hair like a banner.

And from Kage Baker's story collection Black Projects, White Nights: The Company Dossiers:

"Well, the painting's not finished yet," the Sea Captain said, "because I'm still learning about you."
