I was geeking out this morning listening to my favorite podcast about language and some even geekier person on the show proposed a new word that is apparently catching on. I had to share it since I wrote an entire entry about this very thing - Dating on an Empty Stomach. Let's just say that if I don't eat, I can be considered a public safety hazard (poor Only Child learned that on one of our early dates when I threatened to "start a riot"). I recall many of you responded to this entry, having experienced this affliction as well. So, how do you feel about the word "hangry" - a combination of "hungry" and "angry." I love it!
I also heard another brand-spanking new word that is worth spreading..."newsrotica," defined as excessive media coverage of a salacious news story (Anna Nicole Smith, Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton....you get it).
