Type of woman's foot wear worn mostly by younger woman in Westernized countries. Often made of sheep skin and wool, these poorly designed boots lack in proper arch and foot support. The wearer of the boot can often be seen walking not on the sole of the boot but rather on the actual side of the boot itself. This leads to a condition characterized by worn out, wet and ugly boots. Hence the name "Ugg boots".

This is a phrase often used by managers and human-resources personnel to describe a break in the work day set aside for food and drink. Rather that using the colloquial terms "coffee break" and "lunch", this phrase will often be invoked in an attempt to sound politically correct , educated and sophisticated. The phrase is most often used at work shops, meetings, seminars and focus groups hosted by public-sector organizations such as Universities.
Johnathan from HR:

"OK people, we are now going to take 15 minutes for a nutritional break. Please help yourself to coffee and muffins located at the back of the seminar room."
