"Ziggurat" is used as a code word for expressing discomfort, awkwardness or embarrassment. It developed as a text-messaging term but it can be used in oral conversation as well. Other forms of the word, such as "ziggurating" or "zigguraty," are becoming increasingly popular.
Eleanor: Hows the date going?
Samantha: ZIGGURAT!

Samantha: Oh my god, I can't believe you actually frenooblited during the art history exam!
Eleanor: I know, it was so ziggurating. I freaked out and then I totally blanked on the name of those Assyrian pyramid-like temples!
