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.

If Winter comes, can Spring be far behind? (Shelley) (redux)

When I find myself suffering from a raging case of Spring Fever,
I look for solace in the little things. Catherine Moore has many
delightful little things on her Character Constructions site.
