What's on your coffee table?

Here's a fun Meme I "borrowed" from Kimberly's blog. She has some really fun ones.

The Rules of the game:

1. Find the nearest book to you.
2. Name the book and author.
3. Turn to page 123.
4. Go to the fifth sentence on the page.
5. Copy out the next 3 sentences and post to your blog.
6. Tag three other people.

The book I have is The Complete Works of William Shakespeare. Page 123 opens on Act V, Scene I of Measure for Measure. The Duke is speaking to Lucio:

"I find an apt remission in myself;
And yet here's one in place I cannot pardon.
You, sirrah, that knew me for a fool, a coward,
One all of luxury, an ass, a madman!
Wherein have I so deserv'd of you
That you extol me thus?"

Ok then!

If you feel like playing the game clue me in!

"When this is o'er, I'll seek the leave of the next kelda to return to my ain folk in the mountains. This is a fiiine fat country and this is a fiiine bonny clan my nephews have, but I would like to die in the heather where I was borrrned. If you will excuse me, kelda..."
