All this randomness....

OK this has been on my mind... and that in itself is fairly random... I am really thinking that the word is a little over used, it's everywhere these days. Not that there's anything wrong with that but isn't there an alternative? I am myself a totally random human being. It all began a long long time ago in a different life, we would have random days where we'd get out there and drive anywhere, take walks, visit new towns, just wander aimlessly, randomly.....

So I have consulted Mr. Thesaurus and here's what I found.... 
Main Entry:random
Part of Speech:adjective
Definition:haphazard, chance
Synonyms:accidentaladventitiousaimlessarbitrary,casualcontingent, designlessdesultory, driftlessflukyfortuitoushit-or-miss*,incidentalindiscriminateirregular, objectless,oddpromiscuouspurposelessslapdash*, spot,stray, unaimed, unconsidered, unplanned,unpremeditated
Antonyms:definitemethodicalparticularspecific,systematic



I think my favoured words from above are promiscuous.. ooh er!! adventitious and the winner is slapdash... you can't deny a word that starts with slap can you??

So if I do drop any of these words into future posts you will now know where I am coming from.  Not that anyone ever really knows where I am coming from but you'll have a general idea.  Muchos Besos!!! 
p.s....spell check has highlighted some of the words from the thesaurus.. hilarious!

I like that it lists unpremeditated. The combination of un- and pre- is kinda quirky. So I guess it could be considered postmeditated?

i like fluky. i don't know what it means, but i think it's what i mean by random. :-) and i know i'm an over-user of the word. it just fits...so, so often.
