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.

Junkshop blues

If you ever run across one of these at a junkshop and ask yourself, "Who would want that?" Go ahead and answer yourself, too, "Sarah would, without a doubt. I better grab it for her!" (Oh, by the way, it's a lipstick holder from the 60's.)
