Slang and Urban Speak...Gotta Love it!

I came across a very cool website while incorporating slang into my latest novel. Okay, grab your pen, all you writers out there. You'll want to save this page as a favorite and make sure you sign up to get the Slang Word of the Day..snicker. Feels like the joke of the day to me. Some of the craziest words and phrases are added to this website daily. Anyone can add a word. It's a great place to get the latest, trendy speak.


Urban Dictionary Direct Link

Here's some of this week's words. Enjoy!
Happy Reading and Writing! ~ Alisha

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.
Dude, that asshole friend of my girlfriend just sent me a friend request on Facebook. He's getting the inbox rot.

Flee-Mail ~ E-Mail typically used at work to get out of work or justify absences.
Typical Flee-Mail sent at work: "I have a (Doctor, Dentist, etc) appointment", "I'll be out of the office on (Vac, Personal day, Sick Leave, etc", "I'm taking a Late Lunch.." "I'll be leaving the office due to a personal emergency, etc..."

Strand-up comedy ~ The way one's hair can look first thing in the morning, sticking straight up in all directions.
When Bob woke up this morning, his hair looked like a strand-up comedy.

~ 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.
Girl 1: My bf won't take me out to dinner.
Girl 2: You need to sexsuade that man!

dejabrew~ Much like deja vu dejabrew is when you start to remember things you did last night while drinking an excessive amount of beer.
I remember now standing on the bar stool pissing into my beer mug while laughing at anything and everything. Oh my God, dejabrew! I won't ever be able to face those people again.

~ eye-peeper(noun); a person, usually in the workplace, who looks at someone's IPOD screen to see what it is they are listening to and then comments on it, or uses that information later for some other purpose.

"Joe I-peeped me yesterday when I was listening to Black Sabbath, and then during lunch, joked to my boss that I listen to 'the devil's music'".

"Hey, I don't mean to be an I-Peeper but I see we have a mutual Clay Aiken thing going on."

Cheat Chain ~ When one kid copies answers from a smart kid in class, then another kid copies from him/her, and the someone copies off the kid who copied off the kid who copied from the smart kid, etc.

Eventually having everyone in the cheat chain having the smart kids answers, ideal for desks set in rows.
I'm really glad we organized that cheat chain on Friday, I actually have a chance of not failing.

I love Urban Dictionary. It's expanded my vocabulary a lot! Also, now I don't feel so out of the loop when people are using words I've never heard before. *gg*

A girlfriend told me about Urban Dictionary last summer and since then I've used it somewhere close to a gazillion times. Sometimes I get caught up in reading page after page and just laughing. It's great entertainment.

I have found it extremely useful when I don't understand a particular slang on television. Ha! It's an awesome resource to have. Who says you can't teach an oldie new tricks. :D

Great blog, btw!
