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.

"You have to post these rules before you give the facts. Players, you must list one fact that is somehow relevant to your life for each letter of your middle name. If you don’t have a middle name, use the middle name you would have liked to have had. When you are tagged you need to write your own blogpost containing your own middle name game facts. At the end of your blog post, you need to choose one person for each letter of your middle name to tag. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged and to read your blog."

E - is for Entertaining. Well, I CAN be quite funny.
L - ove may not be all you need but it's quite alot!
Y - es. Said too often, it creates quite a few conflicts of committment. I should know.
N - quite totally Noblesse Oblige. 'Nough said.
N - if NOW is all I have, please God, make me be a quite a bit NICER girl.

(Yes, I did have a little bet going to see if I could use QUITE for every letter.)

If you haven't already participated in this tag, what are YOUR middle names?

Kelly! Above is the cover of a book I got at Kinokuniya Books in Little Tokyo in downtown LA. The artist is Kohime Ohse. And below is a lovely little household piece I got at the market you told us to go to (directly below the bookstore) - Marukai Market. This was in the especially cool section over toward the right, where nothing is more than $1.50! Angela got some retro fab lipsticks at that same market; the way they smell is just like my mum's smelled, way back in the 60's. OMG, it looks like they have a 98 cent store - you are so LUCKY!Well, that's todays entry. Time for your faithful Susie Homemaker to go wash up and maybe she will even have a little time to practice the pretty pose seen above.
