Boos! & Yays! Time

I know some folks love a good session of Boos! & Yays! Well the Muse of Boos and the Gays of Yays have both been whispering in my ear of late, so here for your minor edification I give you Boos! & Yays! for the 2nd of August, 2006.
  • The weather! We're slowly sliding towards Spring in this part of the world folks, and that gets the biggest Yay! of the day from me. Yesterday was mild and sunny, so nice in fact that I decided to walk home from work, an hour stroll in the slowly darkening dusk. (Yay!)

  • This morning I woke up with the first symptoms of a head cold. Head in vice, scratchy nose and throat... you know the drill. (*sniff* BOOOOOO! *sniff*)

  • Photography. I'm a bit stymied by not being able to download any photos from my camera onto my PC at the moment (Boo!), on account of memory space problems on my old machine, but I seem to have gotten over a small creative crisis and am loving playing with the camera again (Yay!).

  • I plan on buying an external hard drive this week, as a temporary measure to solve the memory issues of my PC and as eventual back-up storage for the gigs of skanky porn photographs I've been accumulating (Yay!)

  • Today is my sister Fiona's 44th Birthday (Yay!), although in her eyes the number is a definate Boo!

  • She always kicks off Birthday Month in my family, which means that 42 is just around the corner for me ( ::stunned silence:: )

I think your upcoming birthday counts as a 'yay!"

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 4 sentences on your Blog/Live Journal 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.

Beside her, on a chair, was the missing dress. In front of her, on the table was the missing ring. She said quietly, "Hallo, Harry."

The gin bottle clinked on the edge of the glass as Vera got herself a drink.

From Number 96: The Sins of Harry Collins (1974) by Marina Campbell.

No cheating, I swear. My "Number 96" paperbacks were the closest to the computer. it was either one of them, or "The Macquarie Dictionary", and I figured it was expected it to be fiction.

I hereby tag:
Dayton's Pimple...
High Riser
Retroactive Continuity
Starfleet Library
The Other Andrew

Boos! & Yays! gets a big YAY! Love it. Love it like fresh strawberries or buttery sweet corn or a toothy blowjob.

Happy BirthMonth! 42, huh? After only a month's respite, you're my Daddy again.
