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.

Gone camping...

Hey, I thought this was MY field!
5 days * 4 nights* 4 adults * 6 kids * 3 pups * 30 horses * a chattering of chipmunks * a bevy of bats * several swallows * a couple of crows * 3 tents * a boatload of books * shooting stars * river rocks * a couple dozen rounds of Mafia * burritos smothered in green * black forest pudding cake cooked in a Dutch oven over the campfire * Mike's Hard Mango * Flip-Flop Pinot Grigio * and just under a million chiggers, skeeters, and horseflies --- priceless!
