What are your favourite first sentences from books? Is there a book that you liked specially because of its first sentence? Or a book, perhaps that you didn’t like but still remember simply because of the first line?
I am terrible at memorizing lines to anything. I do not remember first sentences, last sentences, or even middle sentences of books. Nor do I remember lyrics, speeches, poems, Shakespearean monologues, quotes, or anything with more than three words in a certain order. I remember characters and plotlines though.

The Thursday Threesome: Toys ‘r Us
Onesome: Toys–? Any new tech toys at your place? No? What would you like to have that is all sorts of “new and improved” and just hard to live without?
None lately. And I can live without quite a bit of technological gadgetry. As for work in the lab, well, anything new and improved would be great. But like all things, one has to consider the budget and whether or not you really need it.
Twosome: ‘r– you ready for school to be in session again? Good grief, it’s only July, but the Back to School sales have been in place for a few weeks now. Do you have a trinket you’re planning on buying for yourself or the kids for this next year?
I suppose I’ll be as ready as I ever will be. And no, I do not plan on buying anything for school.
Threesome: Us–? Nah, nothing fancy going on on this blog space. How about you: any changes planned on your site in the upcoming months?
None. Don’t have any time to alter the layout. Or the inclination.
