Sounds like fun!

Here's another one:
Stand in front of your book case with your eyes closed and pick a random book. Then open the book on a random page and start reading at the top of the page. That's where you should be able to find the answer to your question.

I've tried the book example when I felt in a pinch...

...and it worked astonishly well. But "overused", it doesn't, for me at least.

i did that with the book 'seat of the soul' by gary zukov. each day, i would open it randomly and read. it almost always fit, what was going on in my life at the time, amazingly well.

I dont think the book thing works for me unless it is a brand new book that no one has opens, otherwise I can usually find the same pages all the time......

i hear a lot of christians are doing it and i tried it a few times but always stumbled onto really weird books, like a recepie for spongecake, how it is important to drink the blood of your first kill (a fantasy bok), a description of what crops they grow in Laos, steamy sex-scenes or a tale of how the fog rolls in over the river Tejo.

i wonder if one can't do something similar with the Tv remote
pick a random number and hit it!
