I Kid You Not

After floating around the blogosphere, prompted by the comments on Waiting for Nat, I found myself at the Reverend Mommy's home. There she had a meme. I have avoided meme's up until now, but had to do this. It's the Book 123 Meme. It requires you to find the nearest book. I have one book on my desk right now. (I know, not good for someone who is trying to finish her dissertation. I should be drowning in books.)

Here's what you do:

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
5. Don't search around and look for the 'coolest' book you can find. Do what's actually next to you.

My sentence?

"This document should be written out of love and conscientious choice-- not just to prevent a possible legal dispute."

This sentence is from the preamble to a potential "Sample Known Donor Contract." The book? The Essential Guide to Lesbian Conception, Pregnancy, and Birth.

Could my world get any odder right now? I couldn't make this stuff up if I tried.

I don't know if that book was out when we were at the point in the process where you are now. We read and loved Rachel Pepper's Ultimate Guide to Pregnancy for Lesbians. Here's a link:
