Thursday Thirteen!

Thirteen Words Out of the Urban Dictionary! Love that Website!

1. Facebookemon
The collection of people, on your Facebook friends list, that you donโ€™t actually talk to or know in real life.

2. Tweetup
A group of friends on Twitter that are planning to meet up. A request by a user to meet with friends via Twitter.

3. Social Notworking
The practice of spending time unproductively on social-networking websites, especially when one should be working.

4. Inbox Rot
To neither accept, nor decline a friend request from someone on Facebook or Myspace. Used in situations when you don’t want to accept someone’s friend request, but you also don’t want to be rude by declining them.

5. Sexsuade
To convince someone to agree to, accept, or do something, usually by using the promise of sex (explicit or implicit) or by withholding sex until you get your way.

6. Remote Dance
The movements you make with your hand when trying to get your tv to recognize your remote control.

7. Yellular
The loudness one adopts in response to a bad cell-phone connection, in the misguided hope that talking louder will improve the connection.

8. Flavorgasm
When eating food so good that you let out an involuntary moan, usually after the first bite; also as an adjective – flavorgasmic

9. Booty Grazing
The act of mass texting a generic message to members of the opposite sex in hopes that a guaranteed hookup for the night will be established. It often involves a very nonspecific message such as “What are you up to tonight?” or “Want to meet up later?” The key feature is the lack of personalization so that the same message can be sent to as many people as possible. This can also be applied to other contact means such as myspace, facebook or email.

10. Thumb Strength
The energy required to write a text.

11. Textrovert
One who feels an increased sense of bravery over texting, as opposed to in person, or one who will often only say what they really feel over text messages.

12. Boyfriend Drop
Subtly adding the fact that you have a boyfriend into the conversation in order to deter anyone who is potentially interested.

13. The Spousal We
Meaning “you”. Used by your significant other to get you to do something, as in, “We should clean the bathroon today,” meaning, “You should clean the bathroom today.”

The Bumbles says March 27, 2009

I don’t do Facebook but Andy does. So thanks to your post I can now tell him to stop Social Notworking all day which will only lead to Inbox Rot or Facebookemon – but as long as he’s not trying to Sexsuade the ladies via Booty Grazing and getting rejected with Boyfriend Drops, I won’t have to use the Spousal We on him with chores all weekend.

Janice says March 27, 2009

Yeah the spousol drop “We” doesn’t work. I say we and he thing me.
