Three tags and a new nail colour

I have a really bad habit of procrastinating when it comes to doing tags so I decided to do all the tags I've been given, new and overdue, in this one post. Here goes:


Page 123 Tag

This tag was given to me by the awesome lady, enc of Observation Mode quite a while ago (sorry I took so long!).

Rules:

1. Pick up the nearest book.
2. Open to page 123.
3.Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people, and acknowledge who tagged you.

Ok, so I haven't been doing much reading lately so I had to dig one out of my...ah...extensive collection haha. The name of the book is The Chrysalids by John Wyndham:


I told Petra in words:

'Get dressed as fast as you can. Overalls. And be very quiet.'

Very likely she had not understood the thought-shapes in detail, but she had caught their urgency. She simply nodded, and slipped back into the dark passage.



Book outline: Thousands of years after our time, the world faced something known as Tribulation, when civilization was almost completely wiped out and had to be started over, with new rules and laws. Humans beings born as “deviants”, missing an attribute that normal humans would have, is considered a blasphemy towards God.

David, a young man whose father is in charge of seeking out deviants in his community, discovered that he, along with a few other young adults, can communicate to one another through their minds and what they call “thought shapes”. For a long while they’ve hidden their secret talents, but as rules get tighter and tighter they know it’s only a matter of time until they’re discovered. (Source)

Ok, so I'm tagging anyone who wants to do this tag!


The Flickr Tag

This tag was given to me by the fabulous Queen B of I Never Repeat Gossip...So Listen Carefully.


Rules:

a. Type your answer to each of the questions below into Flickr Search.
b. Using only the first page, pick an image.
c. Copy and paste each of the URLs for the images into the Mosaic Maker




1.What is your first name?
2.What is your favorite food?
3.What high school did you go to?
4.What is your favorite color?
5.Who is your celebrity crush?
6.Favorite drink?
7.Dream vacation?
8.Favorite dessert?
9.What you want to be when you grow up?
10.What do you love most in life?
11.One Word to describe you.
12.Your flickr name.


Once again, I pass this tag on to whoever wants to do it!

My new nail colour



Yeah, yeah...I know what you're all thinking. Potential hand model right? No? Well anyway, I just wanted to show you guys my cool bright blue nails! I haven't painted my nails in such a long time so this is a fun and refreshing change.

What colour are your nails right now?


P.S I also want to thank everyone who left lovely comments on the last post. I love you all! Muah!

I sure did think that--hand model indeed! I never wear color on my fingernails. If my nails aren't just clear, I've got a French manicure.

CoutureCarrie said...

D, you are a dear! I am really honored to be chosen for the "Premio"; I've seen it on other blogs and thought - Wow! How do I get one of those?? Is there a solid gold trophy? (j.k.!) Really good idea on the combining tags and making it fun for everyone :)
That blue nail polish is HOT! I have a similar shade and though my nails aren't as long and luscious as yours, I quite adore wearing it... Right now my nails are sunshine yellow!
Have an inspired weekend, darling!

That color looks fab on you. Blue nail polish is not an easy color to pull off but you clearly succeed. Right now , nothing. Help me! I'm too lazy to paint my nails, I usually just do my toes if that counts.

They're pretty in a rose color right now.

Have a great one, sweetie.

Pamcasso said...

love the blue! I would like to try a shade a bit lighter, but I can't stand having polish on my fingernails for some reason. I usually scratch it off while it dries. Maybe some weird disorder/phobia??
