YOYO (You’re On Your Own)!

With some many acrynoms and BBM messages infilitrating what we use to know as common English, do you sometimes wonder WTF people are saying? I picked up this book today and I love it! I was laughing and trying to retain most of it. Like all slang, some stick and some don’t – but this is a great read for those who want to communicate with the Gen D (generation digital).

Here are some of my favorites:
Deja poo – feeling that you have stepped in this bull before
WOMBAT – Waste of Money, Bandwidth and Time
WFH – Work from Home
Two Comma – anything over $1,000,000 or more!
Straight to video – the kind of guy/girl you entertain at home but not seen in public with

Special sauce – business jargon for anything proprietary
SEP – somebody else’s problem
September 10 – outdated, old fashion and no long cool (world before Sept 11)
Retrosexual – the opposite of metrosexual!
Photox – Photoshop Botox
Moved to Atlanta – 404 error (Altanta area code)

and my favorite. Blook – a blog that turns into a book
