So little time… so little to do

Random

Filed under: arbit — Priyam @ 3:20 am

The blog world seems to be a bit biased towards the word “Random”. It is quite often found to be used as a way to describe the central theme of a blog, a post (like this) or the author. It so reminds me of the Seinfeld show where they come up with an idea of “a show about nothing”. But I believe when someone makes a statement about the randomness in their posts, he/she really means that it is going to be a show about everything. Life, affairs, blah blah blah….. Having spent considerable time in a cosy environment of Mumbai, where everyone seems to pick up a lot of common lingo shared by the residing technocrats who have passed it on for generations, I have associated myself more with the word “arbit” – a short form of arbitrary from the Queen’s dictionary. I know both Random and Arbit really imply the same, but don’t you think the latter has a bit of a cooler click to it ?

Wow, I did throw in a post about nothing ! I believe it will be apt to dedicate this one to all the nothingness that has been reaped from all the unusual efforts put into research in the past few weeks.
