A "good enough" mom muses about alpha moms, adoption, computers, the State Of The World, Internet quirkiness, and the Kosmik All
A sentence
Grabbed from another blog: 1. Grab the nearest book. 2. Open it to page 161. 3. Find the fifth sentence. 4. Post the text of the sentence along with these instructions. 5. Don't search around and look for the coolest book you can find. Do what's actually next to you. "Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa--the shield volcanoes that from seafloor to summit are the highest mountains on earth--stand close to the southeasterly tip of the Hawaiian Islands." -- from Rising from the Plains, by John McPhee. OmegaDad is very into John McPhee.

    This is easy, the book nearest me doesn't have 161 pages. Or the next, or the next. The nearest bookcase is my daughter's.
