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.

Cut the first line

No, this is not a post about illegal mind altering substances. . . unless by illegal mind altering substances, I mean books. And unless by books, I mean This Is For You, by (prince of the papercut artists) Rob Ryan. And it's not even a real post, unless by post I mean, see the sweet nuance of the downward tilt of the boy's neck? The wispy tendrils of his bangs? Etc.
