New Words

BLAMESTORMING : Sitting around in a group, discussing who was responsible.

SALMON DAY : When you spending the entire day swimming upstream, then get screwed.

OHNOSECOND : That minuscule fraction of time in which you realize that you’ve just made a big mistake. (Like after hitting send on an e-mail)

SITCOM : Single Income, Two Children, Oppressive Mortgage.

STRESS PUPPY : A person who seems to thrive on being stressed out and whiny.

MOUSE POTATO : Someone who used to be a couch potato, until they started a blog.

IRRITAINMENT : television progammes that are really annoying, but you find yourself unable to stop watching them. Like Big Brother, or anything involving Jonathan Ross or Michael Jackson.

PERCUSSIVE MAINTENANCE : The fine art of whacking an electronic device to get it to work again.

404 : Someone who’s clueless. From the error message “404 Not Found,” meaning that the requested site could not be located.

Thanks to Cap'n Dyke for these.

I love the 'mouse potato'. Definitely me - although I was never a couch potato.
I just find TV so boring compared with the net.
