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.

who what when where how

Last night I got a series of questions from Emmy. I did NOT read directions. They were each supposed to be answered with only ONE word! How is that even possible? I have no idea.
But I stole this list of questions from Jenn, and answered them, since there seemed to be no word strictures.

1. Are you taller than your best friend?
Def. NO. (No matter who she or he is!!)

2. Do you have a favorite type of pen?
One I accidentally brought home from Angela's and never sent back. It's red and says Alvarado Paint & Hardware, LA. It doesn't say what kind it is, but it writes better than any pen I have ever seen!

3. Look at your planner for March 8th, what are you doing?
Working on the new book.
