Urban Dictionary....

New words for me and Sasha.  I admit to being a word nerd, but I'll also (reluctantly) admit that I'm not up on the latest slang used by those crazy kids nowadays...  I am familiar with many of the acronyms, like LOL, BRB, IMO, CUL8R, etc.  I know many of the words or terms teens today think they invented, ecpecially for drunk (shitfaced, plastered, etc.) or joint (spliff, blunt, etc.).  However, after whiling away a morning on Urban Dictionary, I did learn a few things:

Rendezbooze: When a group of people (friends, co-workers, acquaintances) get together to drink.

ProcrastinEating: Do I really need to explain this one?  Usually involves chips or ice cream.

PWN (or PWNed):  Means losing badly at something/getting your ass kicked.  (At the Olympics, we PWNed the podium.)  This apparently comes from a misspelling of 'owned'.  Seems logical.

Beef Walk: Going outside or away from the group in order to fart with less consequence.  In other words, leaving the room to break wind or toot.  We said "cheese" kids now say "beef". 

Netglow: Someone (or something) that is better online than in real life.  Term is frequently used in reference to cyber-dating and vacation spots. 

MMORPG:  Massively-Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game. A treadmill that makes you fatter.  In other words, sitting on your ass in front of the screen.  Get outside.  Get some fresh air.

MBAese: An  indecipherable language taught in MBA factories where the user has mastered the art of using large, multisyllabic words to make meaningless, intelligent sounding action statements.  This is becomingan epidemic.    

Edgehog: A passenger on the bus/subway who hogs the aisle seat so that you either have to climb over them to get the window seat or so that they have the two seats to thelselves.  Basically an asshole.

Bed Gravity:  Happens to me every weekend.  An irresistible force that draws you back to bed, or toward any mattress, couch, or other soft horizontal surface. Usually stronger when one or more persons are already on said furnature.  Also happens often when you have an 8:00 am class.

Powerpuff Presentation:  Love this!  All sizzle, no steak.
