Random Thursday (ˈrandəm ˈTHərzdā): the day on which Sarah plunks down all the odd bits and pieces she’s been sent by friends or has otherwise stumbled upon this week in an effort to avoid writing a real post, the assembly of which usually ends up taking twice as much time as sitting down and creating actual content.
I have no explanation for why all this stuff ended up in my Random Thursday Stuff folder.
But I don’t have an apology for it either.
When it comes to Star Wars, I will trade laser blasts and light speed for the laws of physics every single time.

FORTUNATELY, THE MILK!
I haven’t been this fansquee over an artist since Quentin Blake.
And Shel Silverstein. And James C. Christensen.
(and maybe that Mike Allegra guy)
Seriously, go take a look at Mr. Young’s stuff.
Fanfic in One Pic
The Answer is actually Forty-Three
But how many of those cartoon theme songs can you identify?
The list is on YouTube, if you want to see what you missed.
If you didn’t miss any of them . . .
Maybe you should step away from the screen for a while? ‘Cause you’ve been away a long time.
I issued a Vonnegut Challenge yesterday!
Write a secret poem, tear it up, and send me a pic of the pieces
(or a link or a tweet or a Facebook holler—whatever)
for a chance to win the regular-sized CafePress mug of your choice.
You have until tomorrow midnight!
