Used to point out or emphasise silence. (Well, not precisely silence, since chirping crickets make sound. But you get it.)

The idea is that you can only hear crickets when there are no other sounds, such as conversation or laughter. Often used to denote the awkward pause after a bad joke.
Joe: What's the sound of two drums and a cymbal falling over a cliff?
Ted: *tiredly* I don't know, Joe. What is the sound of two drums and a cymbal falling over a cliff?
Joe: baDUM-ksh!

*crickets chirp*

Joe: ...Oh, come on. That was funny.

An area of Minneapolis by the UMN campus. Some people call it UMN's answer to Mad-town's State Street, but those people have clearly not been to State Street, as the atmosphere is completely different.

Contains several restaurants, cafés, shops and other venues, as well as the Dinkydome, a rather glorified (but nice) food court.

Uburbanites have an admittedly strange fondness for the neighborhood, and while they may bash it in the company of fellow Minnesotans, many will defend it to the death against Madison detractors.

This is not a nickname or slang term. It is the honest-to-gosh name of the neighborhood.
State Street is eclectic; Dinkytown is homey. State Street will nod to you as you pass, but Dinkytown will wrap you up in a great big Minnesotan bear hug.

I'm gonna be in Dinkytown this afternoon. Want to hit up the Dinkydome for lunch?

To aggressively or enthusiastically hug someone, often with a running start.

Can be used as a noun or a verb.

Text usage is similar to glomp, but without the fangirl stigma.
Even between friends, this exchange comes off as creepy and overenthusiatic:

persondude: yo
animefangirl: SQUEEEEEEE! *glomp!*

The second person in this conversation, on the other hand, maintains a small level of dignity or reserved coolness:

persondude: hey
cooliochika: *tacklehugs*

Verb, preterite of "to friend."

Related to facebook; the action of adding another student as a friend. You click a button, "requesting" that the other person will allow you to add them as a friend. They will receive your request and can either accept or deny it.

You can deny any friend request, and the other person will not be told you rejected them; however, you will not appear on their friend list. This will lead to their repeated attempts to "friend' you. In the end, it's easier just to confirm the darn request.

Despite the appearance and similar meaning, not a shortened form the word befriended.
Dude, I friended this really hot chick last night.

Hey...why won't you let me friend you?

Interjection, similar to holy cow!

From the classic, campy Batman: The Movie starring Adam West. Robin (Burt Ward) had a habit of making strange exclamations (Holy Polaris, Holy Sardine, Holy Captain Nemo... you get the idea.

At one point in the movie, Batman is attacked by--you guessed it--an inflatable shark, against which he must defend himself whilst the faithful Robin runs to get the shark-repellent bat spray.

Should be exclaimed loudly and dramatically, for maximum campy effect.
Holy inflatable shark, Batman! Some days, you just can't get rid of a bomb.
