Archive Mining

Man About Town tagged me with this odd exercise. I have seen it all over the place, but I never got this particular paintball bullet of memedom splattered on my blog uniform before.

1. Go into your archive.
2. Find your 23rd post.
3. Find the fifth sentence (or closest to).
4. Post the text of the sentence in your blog along with these instructions.
5. Tag five other people to do the same.

Here it is. Direct from June 3, 2002 and the post titled Beer Migration

Why would someone be drinking in our back yard?

The answer is, of course, why wouldn’t they?

I can’t keep track of who has done this and who hasn’t. So, consider yourself tagged.

    I’m still not sure I understand the point of this particular meme. Of the handful of blogs I’ve seen it on yours is the only one so far that had a sentence which piqued my curiosity. I just checked mine (it’s the first entry I did on me and my daughter being ADD) and the sentence makes no sense out of context.

    I think it’s morphed from the “page 23, sentence 5 book meme” (which, apparently, came from the “page 18, sentence 4” book meme). Here is one of many research posts on trying to get to the bottom of it: (I love the tongue-in-cheek comment that goes into Discordian theory.)

    My suspicion is that it was created by the evil Livejournal population in order to drive bloggers insane(r).

  3. Sorry to interrupt.

    Mine this:
    If you don’t believe Darth Boss George will fire Joe Torre then you never damn well got what it meant when the NY Daily News branded the whole bunch “The Bronx Zoo.”

    (TC walks back into the dark corridors…where the leftovers keys from the Soviet days are found…and Bill Gallo and all those fha-cock-ta boxing guys, because now I find Mullins and Teddy standing next me me again.)

    (Note: They won. They are my friends. We can beat up the whole fucking block.

    OH! You did not know? Yes, Yankee fans! Get them suckers with their baseball cards…when they play in Staten Island…when I have…excuse me, asshole, WINNERS.

    (we beat the NY-Penn League again… Lange…couldn’t care as long as Brooklyn finished behind, and none of you “OH, I’m into baseball”)

    But your Red Sox stuff…

  4. You beat that for stream…

    I don’t even know what I was talking about.
