Creating a random shape (blob) of a given area in NetLogo


Is it possible to create random shapes (see below for example) of a given area in NetLogo?

A first stab at Seth's suggestion #1. It creates a neat visual too!

patches-own [ height ]

to blobbify
  clear-all
  repeat (ceiling 2 * (ln (world-height * world-width))) [
    ask patch (round (random (world-width / 2)) - world-width / 4)
              (round (random (world-height / 2)) - world-height / 4)
              [ set height world-width * world-height ] ]
  while [ count patches with [ height > 1 ] < (world-width * world-height / 4)] 
        [ diffuse height 1
          ask patches with [ height > 0 ] [ set pcolor height ]
        ]
   ask patches with [ height > 1 ] [ set pcolor white ]
end
