I'm alive and I've been tagged

Yes, I am still alive. Just very busy is all. I finished up my last exam this morning (very very early this morning I might add, I've been exhausted all day) and I start May Term on Monday. Lovely.

Anyway, Jude tagged me. And then Anita tried to tag me. So here goes!
Here's the rules at a glance:
-Pick up the nearest book
-Flip to whatever page you're on or a random page
-Type up lines 6-9
-Tag 5 people

From pg 80 Generation X: Crossroads by J. Steven York:
"...And most of all, we will need one unit to operate full specs, and we will need it ready quickly, to allow for the cosmetic modifications that we require."
Bervin leaned back against the workbench, allowing a..."

I really don't know who to tag anymore, as everyone else seems to have already been tagged. But I will tag Jordyn, my newest blogging friend.

Also, Jude nonspecifically & unknowingly tagged me for a second game:
Rules are:
a. Link to the person who tagged you.
b. Post the rules on your blog.
c. Write six random things about yourself.
d. Tag six random people at the end of your post by linking to their blogs.
e. Let each person know they have been tagged by leaving a comment at their blog.
f. Let your tagger know when your entry is up

1. The first person to congratulate me today after I finished my last exam was my favourite radio DJ, Jordan, who does the all-request hour on Shine.FM (I called in to request Paul Allen's "Bring You Back")
2. I write more fanfictions for my X-Men forum than I write for my book
3. I crack my toes in my sleep
4. I am allergic to mint, which means I use kid's "sparkle fun" flavoured toothpaste
5. I am a caffeine addict, more specificly a Coca-Cola addict
6. I'm one of the few writers I know who loves editing

Again, I don't know who to tag anymore, so anyone who wants to can consider themselves tagged.

One of the classes I'm taking during May term is Children's Literature. I've already started flipping through the text book; I'm very excited for this class. We'll be reading Charlotte's Web and when the girl in the school bookstore tried to give me a copy I told her "Oh no, I have my own copy, I just read it last month actually." She gave me a very strange look.

Wow, I don't know that the worst random quote you could have pulled from my book, but it's got to be close. (grin) It's just, when you randomly pop up on the pop-culture radar, you hope it's something more interesting than random villain prattle.

Let's try something a little more typical from page 55.
"You've been to Yellowstone?"
Jono glanced his way. "So this is like a rerun for you?"
Everett nodded.
"Devil's Tower?"
He flipped back a few pages. Wall Drug. Bet you haven't been to Wall Drug."
Angelo sniffed and put the book down in his lap. "What, did you get bitten by a radioactive travel agent?"

Okay, so that's not random is it? But it makes me feel better about myself as a writer.

I agree it's not the best quote, but it was the page I was currently reading. But I did love the quote you posted, I laughed when I first read it in the book.
Don't worry though, I'll soon have some Crossroads quotes up on my quotes blog (I've seen you over there already, nice to see you on one of my blogs again!)
