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.

"More sustaining than meat"

I am watching for a copy of Helfand's book Scrapbook on sale - saw it at someone's house and found myself wanting to spend much more time in its perusal.
Speaking of books, finally, after odd roadblocks, got New Moon, and can't put it down.
Though I find Bella's whines irritate me no end. . .
