random means "having no definite aim or purpose," (1655), taken from "at random" (1565), "at great speed" (thus, "carelessly, haphazardly").

(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.
Will do the drawing Saturday, so you can still comment --- in the meantime, here's a section of a passaround journal page I had some fun making up. . . Trying to catch up with things due to people ages ago. Also, the COOOOOOLest glimpses (OHHH yeah, they are) of random people's places are here.
Haven't had a giveaway for ages. . . the prize this time will be an SF image artist's apron, PLUS a big bunch of mixed-media material - the highest quality, of course.
Back in the 1960s, there were small fabric dolls on a wire armatures, with fairly large heads but skinny little arms and legs, dressed fashionably, wandering the world. Because of the wire, they were poseable. I think they might have been Japanese. My mum would occasionally bring one home for me. Does anyone know what I'm talking about? Anyway, something similar is around now --- Gina dolls. Kawaii!
Here's a smashingly fun meme from my fab friend Jennifer over at Stiletto Heights (who clearly leads a much glammer life than me):
