The Pension Grillparzer

An activity usurped from Angelo-


1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 3 sentences on your blog along with these instructions.
5. Don't dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest.

from page 123 of The World According to Garp

"Tell the truth," the singer said. "He was born without shinbones. But it's true that we couldn't get along with the Russians."
"They tried to jail the bear," said the dream man.
"Tell the truth," Theobald said.

Joe sez:

My collection of nutty books appears to be closest so here's some L. Ron Hubbard:

"Allergies have been found to yield more or less to things which depressed histamine in the body.

The problem of psychosomatic illness is entirely embraced by Dianetics, and by Dianetic technique such illness has been eradicated entirely in every case.

About 70 percent of the physician's current roster of diseases fall into the category of psychosomatic illness."

Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health, L. Ron Hubbard.
