I Got Tagged

for a book meme, so here goes nothing.

1. Pick up the nearest book of 123 pages or more. No cheating!
2. Find page 123.
3. Find the first five sentences.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people.

Gonna skip step five, so join in if ya wanna.

Tonight's excursion wasn't something I could charge Murphy for--she'd have my ass in a sling if she knew I was running around asking questions, poking my nose in where it shouldn't be. So, if I wanted money from the Chicago P.D., I would have to spend time doing the research Murphy wanted--the black-magic research that could get me killed all by itself.
Or, I could work on Monica Sells's missing-husband case.

That's from the very first Dresden Files books by Jim Butcher. Best series, bar none, that I have read in the last 10 years.

(remember, you asked for it)

"Which of the following statements are true, and which are false? If true, say why; if false, give a counterexample (that is, an example confirming the falsehood).
a. If lim(x->a) f(x) exists but lim(x->a) g(x) does not exist, then lim(x->a)(f(x) + g(x)) does not exist."

University Calculus. Hey, it's the closest right now...

Boursier came back in, a solid wave of shells sweeping the field, and the last scattered small antipersonnel firebombs from two hundred meters. Chaka brought his patrol ship down low and slow, thought two lifters were insufficiently damaged, donated a pair of shrikes to the cause, then climbed. "I don't see anything left to break, Safety elements. Let's go on home."
