Find the nearest book to you, turn to page 45, and read the first sentence: this describes your sex life in 2013.
"When one approaches do not panic."

Marginally better than 2012. I really ought to find a more appropriate book for next year, though.

"In the days of the British Raj in India, Ashoura was an important date on the calendar of colonial officials, who inevitably had to contend with Shia customs and procession routes that raised Sunni hackles and, at times, Hindu objections."

I think I need books with shorter sentences :)

'When goods or useful things that come to the house are directed to 'self-maintenance', they are 'expenditures of the house' or 'uses from the door inwards'. As one woman said, 'One uses it up for the house, but in order to avoid buying'.

Hmm, not so useful. Next?

'The Jelgobe arrived to the region in small groups toward the end of the seventeenth century and beginning of the eighteenth'.

Hmm. Moral: do not keep anthropology books close at hand if you want to hear anything witty or useful about your sex life.

I don't _remember_ you being especially panicky. :-P

Apparently I am to meet some new people: "As, therefore, there appeared to be no chance of Mrs Templemore coming to take care of her child, Mr Witherington at last resolved to write to Bath, where his sister resided, and acquaint her with the whole story, requesting her to come and superintend his domestic concerns."

There are three books equidistant from me. Let's see.

"Color, costumes and music are, of course, among South America's most unique and best appreciated attractions."

"The first ingenious cable bridge was over two hundred and thirty feet long and as might be suspected, swayed perilously in the continuous winds of the river valley."

"After you've added all the materials to the package, you can build it from the command line on your computer (not the R shell).".

Hmm. Not sure what that says about my current year, then.

"I can see why those fat porcupines couldn't manage this," commented Rose, as the Doctor pressed a combination of buttons to navigate a series of long jumps onto tiny platforms.
