Just one random sentence

October 11, 2009

Thanks to Claire for passing this meme on, I have a few awards and memes and things to do but this one seemed short and sweet and she is waiting for a baby and a bit fed up so I thought it would be a good idea to do something to keep her happy (I did a meme last week passed onto me from Tasha who was also waiting for a baby, and guess what…she arrived)! Perhaps this will start something for Claire too…

So here are the rules…

1. Collect the book that you have most handy.

2. Turn to page 161.

3. Find the 5th complete sentence.

4. Site the sentence on your blog.

5. Pass it on to 5 other bloggers.

I am currently reading The Philosophical Baby by Alison Gopnik (I say that….I don’t have any time to read so I am actually just carrying it around everywhere I go and trying to read it. By all accounts it is fascinating so far)

and I give you:

“In inattentional blindness, for example, we feel sure that we are consciously seeing the whole scene, and yet it turns out we are missing the gorilla.”

Crikey. Missing a whole gorilla. That is not easy. I am glad my random sentence had an animal in it. Makes it seem more random somehow!

Anyway, five bloggers. Passing these things on is always quite taxing…as they do the rounds quite a bit. Sorry if you have already had it, Amy, Sandy, Gaelikaa, Miss Leslieanne, Carol.
