Random Tuesday Thoughts

What a great idea - no coherent sentences to form, no overall theme or content consistency, just pure randomness. Here goes ...

Damn, I can't think of one random thing.
Okay, how about the definition from the soon to be defunct Oxford Canadian Dictionary.

random adj. made, done, etc. without method or conscious choice.
at random without aim or purpose or principle (see Harper government) Sorry that was my addition.

The problem with random is that it always makes me think of a teenager saying, "that's soooo random." Random is really a state of mind, like the way I navigate my way through the blogosphere with no aim or purpose or method, randomly clicking on the highlighted words that some other blogger has chosen to lead me to.

I guess blogging and reading blogs is the ultimate in random.

How random is that?


  1. Oh my goodness...an "official" random day...how much do i love this?!?! I'm random 90% of the time, how fun to have one day with a purpose!! I may have to borrow that!
    my life is random...makes things more exciting, i think!! (it may bothers those around me, but...that's sometimes just part of the fun!!)
    Happy Tuesday....and Wednesday, too, as it is over here!!!

  2. I know I have random thoughts all the time (crazy as a loon here?) but when pressed to come up with one, they’re hard to pin down. (Yup, crazy...)

    Love your Harper government example!
