Here are the best Urban Dictionary Words of the Day from last week:
September 29: Blackberry Jam
A people traffic jam that occurrs in subway tunnels and bus stations. Caused by inconsiderate workaholics walking too slow while their noses are glued to their Blackberry device.
I was late for work because there was a Blackberry Jam getting out of the A train.
October 04: manicorn
a mythical male creature who is successful (read: pursuing his passion and can pay his electric bills/rent), funny, chivalrous, masculine (read: not chauvinistic), adventurous, artistic (read: not suicidal).
See any John Cusack film (or Chuck Klosterman's witty commentary on Fake Love in Sex, Drugs and Cocoa Pops), any romantic comedy where the flawed guy comes through in the end...
"Where is my manicorn? I keep going out with all these losers!"
"Too bad I settled when I got married, I just met my manicorn."
And now your list of states whose voter registration rolls are still open. The blinking ones will close either Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday (i.e., before my next blog post--guest blogger coming tomorrow, then deadline Tuesday). Most of them end on Monday! As always, check with VotersUnite! to see the specific rules and regs for your state. Don't get Left Behind!
Wow, that is nauseatingly blink-tastic. Let that be a lesson to you, or something.
And now, for a video suggested by fellow author Yasmine Galenorn, Devo's "Freedom of Choice."
Now I know what my next nightmare will look like.
