ragtags studio central: sarah's random this & that

random means "having no definite aim or purpose," (1655), taken from "at random" (1565), "at great speed" (thus, "carelessly, haphazardly"). In 1980s college student slang, it somehow, and sadly, acquired a distinct sense of "inferior, undesirable." (Online Etymology Dictionary, Douglas Harper) Well, okay, fine, Mr. Online Etymology Dictionary person, but THIS is the 21st Century. It's a whole new ball of wax.

Love Gorey?

He was deliciously wicked.
When I was growing up, we had a book of Chas. Addams cartoons. I think they were from the New Yorker and I thought they were sooooo fabulous.
Gorey falls (hehe) under the same category for me. When Sylvia Luna invited me to participate in this "a la" project, I was psyched:
