lyorn tagged me, and now I feel kind of obliged to react...
1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 4-7 sentences on your LJ 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 (unless it's too troublesome to reach and is really heavy. Then go back to step 1).
6. Tag five people.
So they talked long of the unicorn.
And, after a day or two, in the forge of Narl the parliament of Erl was met again, seated by mugs of mead, discussing the unicorn. And some rejoiced and said that Orion was magic, because unicorns were of magic stock and came from beyond our fields.
"Therefore," said one, "he has been to lands of which it does not become us to speak, and is magic, as all things are which dwell over there."
And some agreed and held that their plans had come to fruition.

So, now for the next-to-impossible part: tag five people. Since I was tagged from the one person who's LJ I read somewhat regularly, I have no-one to tag. Sorry. Can't help that now.
