Urban Dictionary Week

Urban Dictionary is a website that lets you define non-dictionary phrases and slangs which are trending at the moment. It's a fun site that gently eases nerds like me into yesterday's 'new' terminology. Most of the definitions are fun and entertaining. However, they do provide a necessary insight into a 'language' that is quickly amalgamating into everyday English.

This is where Facebook comes in. As quoted by All Facebook and Mashable (the latter has had more than 900 tweets on this article at my last count). There's a brand new trend on Facebook this week. (What did we do with our fingers and thumbs before we discovered we could waste time on Facebook trends?) If you have 5 minutes to throw away this week why not pop into the link above for Urban Dictionary. 

  • Type your name into the search panel (on Urban Dictionary's site).
  • Use your first name as your Facebook profile update.
  • Copy and paste the first definition as a comment.
I was highly entertained to find these as definitions for 'Anne.' 
  • An attractive and classy young woman who lives up to the simple beauty of her name.
  • A tall young lady with hair that changes color on a regular basis. 
  • noun: Someone who goes into the pool with his/her clothes on and flounders about due to an inability to swim. 
I loved the explanation that went with that one: Person A: Dude what the hell is that guy doing drowning with his clothes on? 
Person B: Oh, don't mind him. He's such an anne.

Maybe you can find something to make you smile?

What did I do before the internet and facebook? Mmmmm, reading mostly and writing of course. Oh and lots and lots of gardening.

Might give this a try. As if I have nothing better to do. And I don't really.
