I've Been Tagged For A Book MeMe... I get To Pick 5 New MeMe Victims (LOL)

I've been tagged for a Book MeMe. The concept is quite simple and here is how it works:

1. Grab the nearest book.

2. Open the book to page 56.

3. Find the fifth sentence.

4. Post the text of the next two to five sentences.

5. Don’t dig for your favorite book, the cool book or the intellectual one. Pick the Closest.

6. Tag five people to do the same. BTW, *The one book that this can not be is the Bible*

(Bummer, I love the Bible and the Torah is sitting on my drafting table right now. Oh well...)

 

Page 56 from "Corporate Fraud Handbook Prevention and Detection," by Joseph T. Wells:

Books of Accounts

There are two types of books of accounts: journals and ledgers. A journal "(derived from the french word jour, meaning day) is a day-by-day, or chronological, record of transactions." Financial information is taken from source documents and recorded in the journals. Most businesses typically have at least four journals: a cash receipts and disbursements journal; a sales or accounts receivable journal, in which all sales made on credit and cash are listed; a purchases (or accounts payable journal) which records all acquisitions of services purchased on credit; and a general journal which reflects transactions not covered by other journals. It is also the journal used to adjust the books.

Hmm... so now you guys know what type of books I like to recreational read (LOL). Did I mention I was trying to collect multiple broker's licenses in four different States? I think I did, but in case I did not do so lately, I am you know... That is not an easy endeavor. FL is currently kicking my butt, however I am getting a lot of help from my on-line and brick and mortar friends who I love dearly. Thank you, bay-bays!

Now for the fun part. Here are my book loving victims I now tag with great interest (and expect a hint of the hilarious - after all Kathy Passarette, Paddy Pizappi and Susan Mangigian have inspired me - not to mention the fact that my gorgrous gal pals tagged my A$$. BTW, Paddy's MeMe page was priceless - LOL. Susan's fascinated me. Kathy is sublime. I shall have to go on-line and buy their books.) I tag:

(1) Melody Botting

(2) Robert Rauf

(3) Jane Grant

(4) Elizabeth Weintraub

(5) Josef Katz

Well you little whippersnapper!  I will have to check out Paddy's.

Posted by Melody Botting, You Deserve The Best (Broker Associate PenFed Realty) almost 10 years ago

Only you would have Corporate Fraud Handbook Prevention and Detection on your desk C.  Thanks for keeping it going.

Posted by Paddy (Patricia) Pizappi, Real Estate Associate Broker Hudson Valley NY (Better Homes and Gardens Rand Realty) almost 10 years ago

LOL @ Paddy. Maybe I should take a picture of what's on my desk and do a post about my reading habits (LOL). They are quite diverse. I am having thoughts that are hilarious! The cartoons in my head are having quite a field day. :-)

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) almost 10 years ago

Hello Melodious! :-)

Yes, please do. I think you will be quite surprised. I fell out howling with laughter. I started wondering what I would find if I did that with ten books, picking one off of each self. :-D

I may just do that for the amusement of it... who knows what I will post next (LOL).

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) almost 10 years ago

CTS- Please behave, on second thought, please don't.

Posted by Melody Botting, You Deserve The Best (Broker Associate PenFed Realty) almost 10 years ago

LOL @ Mel.

Lets see... who shall I select next...

Maybe I should start at the bottom and find one on the shelf that needs a little dust blown off of it. ;-)

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) almost 10 years ago

I'm a published poet. I haven't touched this book since they sent it to me in 2001. Very dusty (LOL). I will not tell you what page I am on but I will select what ever is on page 56 line 5 et al:

The International Library of Poetry: "Perceptions Of Infinity" Page 56

"My Love," by Rebecca Lippold (lines 6 - 9)

"My love burning inside is never ending. I will follow you with all my heart and with nothing to turn back to. I thank you, my love, and my God, for putting me on this Earth. And I thank you for everything you have given me."

Yes, I admit it, I love poetry. I write quite a lot of it, can recite volumes and am addicted to William Shakespeare. I've been published in four poetry volumes. The first time I was still in High School. How cool is that? (LOL).

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) almost 10 years ago

Very nice C.

Posted by Melody Botting, You Deserve The Best (Broker Associate PenFed Realty) almost 10 years ago

Thank you, Melodious. I wonder what I shall pick off the shelves next. So many books, so little time (LOL).

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) almost 10 years ago

Lol C - As I glance around my living room, all of the books are for kids and none have 56 pages.  I could however, recite Chicka Chicka Boom Boom verbatim. 

Posted by Erik Hitzelberger, Louisville - Middletown Real Estate (RE/MAX Alliance - Louisville REALTOR-Luxury Homes) almost 10 years ago

LOL @ Erik. We can sing it together. That's Noah's favorite book. We have the CD and DVD as well. (LMAO)

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) almost 10 years ago

That is some DRY reading!!!

 

 

Posted by Robert Rauf (HomeBridge Financial Services (NJ)) almost 10 years ago

LOL @ Robert. Not when you get to the details about the actual fraud cases (LMAO). Oh my word, very entertaining, indeed.

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) almost 10 years ago

Carolyn, you always have such light reading. Heck, that is just a couple of steps up from my comic books.

Posted by Fred Chamberlin, Oak Harbor/Whidbeynulls, #1 Experienced FHA Mortgage Consultant (Guild Mortgage Co - Oak Harbor WA) almost 10 years ago

HA! Dodged another bullet...LOL

Posted by Clint Miller (Real Estate Pipeline, Inc.) almost 10 years ago

OK this is a  new one!

Posted by Jeannette Neerpat, e-Pro Coral Springs/Parkland Real Estate (CondoDomain.com) almost 10 years ago

OK I am game but I have been knee deep in our Commercial Real Estate 101 book (and I need a change) so I am going to take the next nearest book.  Ill post later or tomorrow if that is OK with you.

Posted by Josef Katz, {Marketing Maestro} (Digital and Direct Response Marketing) almost 10 years ago

Josef, awesome! Looking forward to it. :-)

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) almost 10 years ago

LOL @ Fred.

Clint, you are soooooo getting tagged! (LOL)

Jeannette, very different and quite interesting (LOL).

 

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) almost 10 years ago

Carolyn ~ You are so diverse in your blog topics that I am not surprised you have just as many diverse book titles.  Just keep the Harold Robbins on the shelf! : )

Posted by Kathy Passarette, L.I. Staging/Decorating (Creative Home Expressions) almost 10 years ago

Cant tag me now...you used up your clip, bay-bay!  :-)  *Snoopy dancin*

Posted by Clint Miller (Real Estate Pipeline, Inc.) almost 10 years ago

C, I love an intellectual read on corporate fraud. You are WAY over my head but I'm definitely coming to you if I get thrown in the pokey to bail my keester out.

Posted by Gary Woltal, Assoc. Broker Realtor SFR Dallas Ft. Worth (Keller Williams Realty) almost 10 years ago

LOL @ Kathy. Awwwww man. I was looking forward to that. :-)

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) almost 10 years ago

Clint, I've been tagged twice before. I'm gonna come gunnin' for you if they tag me again (LOL). I'll have a new virtual tag clip by then, bay-bay. (LOL)

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) almost 10 years ago

Gary, we'll send out a 911 and open a pay-pal emergency fund if you ever get into serious trouble (LOL). Can't have my bay-bays sittin' in no pokey. We got some lawyers in the group too - shoot! So not happennin'! You are one of my fave writers. I gotta have my blog post in the mornings! I don't always comment, but I read like crazy. :-D

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) almost 10 years ago

Thank Carolyn:   This is my favorite book.....Wow you are reading some heavy stuff!           http://activerain.com/blogsview/796487/Everyday-Karma-My-closest-book

Posted by Sidney Kutchuk - Realty Works Temecula Kutchuk - Realty Works Temecula, Realty Works Temecula (Realty Works Temecula) almost 10 years ago

C.. I'm sorry.  I dosed a little during your few lines from the Book of Accounts!  How can you focus on such serious subjects!  Give me fiction or give me death, girl!  The rest of your post was wonderful, as always.   Love you girl.   Give my minion nephews hugs from Aunt Susan.

Posted by Susan Mangigian, Chester & Delaware County Homes, Delaware and Ches (RE/MAX Preferred, West Chester, PA, RS152252A) almost 10 years ago

Aunt Susan, too funny! "Give Me Fiction Or Give Me Death," would make a spanking blog post title! (LMAO)

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) almost 10 years ago

Oh my ... I have missed so many posts that i will never catch up!

Posted by Richard Weisser, Richard Weisser Retired Real Estate Professional (Richard Weisser Realty) almost 10 years ago

LOL @ Richard. Sometimes you just have to take a break, pick a point and start over fresh. :-)

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) almost 10 years ago

Carolyn, I was dead serious though.  Some people live to read.  I read to live.  It keeps me sane.  It's gotta be fiction.  If I want real life, I'll turn on the damn news.  It's my escape.  Give me fiction, or give m death... that's my new motto!  And you are right, it's the perfect post title.... gotta think of a story to go with it.  I love you!

Posted by Susan Mangigian, Chester & Delaware County Homes, Delaware and Ches (RE/MAX Preferred, West Chester, PA, RS152252A) almost 10 years ago

Susan, I am an anal retentive recreational reader. I plow through law books and comic books. My forensic collection is next to my cook books and Bear in the Big Blue House (LMAO). We have so much in common its scary. It is very easy for me to love you, and I do love you dearly.

NOW GO BUY ANOTHER HEADSET and get your bloggers butt back to Skyping me (LOL). Seriously! I need my Mangigian fix! ;-)
