While it says Issue #2 as it pertains to the second edition of my attempt at definitions and wordplay, this blog entry is about my language issues as well.
I tweeted about a newfound word one time, posted a status on facebook another time for another word. This time I’m blogging altogether of words that may be acceptable and legit as they already appear in the urban dictionary but still make me cringe. And I think… no, I know I will never be caught dead using these.
Again, my opinion. You don’t have to agree with me.
1. Rewatch – hmm… sounds like one wants to wear a wristwatch after having removed it. >.< i think people have become too lazy to type two words for it. I’d rather stick to saying ‘watch again’ or ‘watch for the nth time’
2. Angriness – what? the term ‘anger’ isn’t enough anymore?
3. Boyfie / girlfie / selfie – wth??? sounds retarded to me. people should have stopped at hubby and wifey.
4. Spousal unit – first time i heard about this from a friend of mine, i thought she meant a structure (specifically housing provision) for spouses of employees of a certain company. turns out, the spousal unit meant her spouse. as in her husband. i mean, yeah, acceptable, but i swear, if and when i get married and my significant other calls me a spousal unit, i’d punch him on the face. it’s just so impersonal. and so unemotional.
Anyway… That’s about it for now. I know i’ll be posting again on other issues sometime. Til then…
