Gone nuts!

Tags that require no thinking at all make Clueless a very happy blogger. One easy, brainless step closer to 100 posts, mwahahahahaha! Also, this one just happened to yield very funny results.

Tagged (indirectly) by Sayesha,

1. Pick up the nearest book.
2. Open to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people, and acknowledge the person who tagged you.

“Coconuts are still beheaded daily on Chowpatty beach; while on Juhu beach, under the languid gaze of film stars at the Sun’n’Sand hotel, small boys still shin up coconut palms and bring down the bearded fruit. Coconuts even have their own festival, Coconut Day, which was celebrated a few days before my synchronistic birth. You may feel reassured about coconuts.”

Hee. When read out of context like that, it’s just so funny. Oh, randomness. How I love thee.

Anyone want to guess what I’m reading? Anyone, that is, who doesn’t already know because of me personally telling them? πŸ˜›

ETA: D’oh. Forgot the 5th step. Tagging: Macho Girl, Shweta, Soleil, Confused Soul (you have a blog, remember? :P) and anyone else who wants to do it.

    #Soleil,Well, Solomon Islands sounds a lot like India! Boys shinning up coconut trees is a common sight back home. And yup, the coconut tree sure is useful – can make use of every single part! :D#Urv,Hee. One would think the answer would be that easy, but it isn’t! :P#Narayan,Haha, he’s pretty random and loopy. Goes off on tangents a lot – all part of the charm of the book. :PAnd hey, I struck off that sentence! You weren’t supposed to read it! :P#Indiansummers,Hey, that’s cheating, you know! :DOh, it’s just some random small part of the book – I don’t think it has any lasting effect on the plotline. Rushdie does a lot of tangential writing – that’s probably why you don’t remember. πŸ™‚

    That’s on page 123??? How did he end up there? Shame on u- u can’t cheat you know- using randomness to ensure that your count goes on to 100 πŸ˜› . Still I use pictures so….

    It reminds me of the Solomon Islands where the coconut palm is a gift from God. Every single part of that tree is of use to the people and life would be so different without it. I’ve seen little boys climb up coconut palms so fast without any help and picking coconuts like described in the text πŸ™‚

    #MG,Now YOU can use it as an excuse to post! πŸ˜€ :DHa, even if you didn’t know exactly what book I was reading, you’d recognize the lines! And even if you didn’t remember them, you’d totally recognize the book just by the randomness! :DAnd no, don’t blurt it out! (Though I don’t think anyone will guess! :P)
