June 2014 - Urban dictionary
Hum, sometimes I realise I am still a still stranger (or an oldie!). I bumped into this article "Urban dictionary words that have to do" from Melissa Hoyer at the Daily Telegraph, and I don't even use 10% of these words :S
Totes Amazeballs — Used either alone or together. Enough!
Chillaxing — We get it, you’re on holiday.
Passion for fashion — Straight from an 80s department store catalogue.
Fashionista - Enough said.
LMFAO - In fact using any acronym (OMG, IMHO) in real-time chat is so annoying.
Anywho — And that means what exactly?
Hilare — We used to love it. Then everyone started using it.
My bad — It’s just cringe-worthy now.
Nom Nom Nom — Only the late actor Peter Sellers in The Party can say ‘birdie num num’ and make it funny.
Whatevs — It’s dismissive and rude.
Talk to the hand — Grrrrrrr.
Bwahaha — Hahaha usually suffices.
I ‘seen’ him perform — Since when has that become a thing?
Awks — Actually there’s a real word here. It’s called awkward.
Bae — It means ‘baby’ to various celebrity types
Incred — There’s an ‘ible’ at the end of that one
At the end of the day - Snooze
Bromance — Boring
Par-Tay — Was fun. Once. Many parties ago.
Not — At the end of obviously negative statements.
Old school sayings like ‘another day, another dollar’ - Yep, we get it.
‘Like’ - We did this and ‘like’ it was great and ‘like’ we had an unreal time.
Shut the front door - I never got this one.
Hashtag — Words like #justsayin and let’s not even discuss #winning but then, it’s so bad it’s sort of become good again.
Seriously/Literally - ‘I was about to die’. But you didn’t.
Cray cray — It’s just good old crazy and nutty
Bestest — As in my ‘bestest’ friend and it was the ‘bestest’ thing I‘ve ever eaten. It. is. Not. A. Word.
“.com” — Youresoannoying.com, I’mbored.com, getalife.com
Emoshe — As in “I’m totes emoshe”. (That’s emotional to the rest of us).
Embaz — That’s ‘embarrassing’ not a new Baz Luhrmann production.
Boyfie — I have a boyfriend, not a boyfie.
Funky and edgy — We get it. You’re a client and you brief your ad agency to create a ‘funky’ and ‘edgy’ campaign. Yawn.
OKAY TO KEEP (FOR NOW):
Selfie (let’s face it, they’re not going anywhere!)
Grouse (Yes, it has made a triumphant return).
