No unabridged dictionary is complete without the definition of Eleemosynary, but it's really rare to have the opportunity to use the word in Scrabble. My friend who lived with me rent-free for a year and ate all my food was a total eleemosynary. The Southern Arizona AIDS Foundation will be holding an eleemosynary event to benefit those HIV+ and their relatives.

(n.) a temporary syndrome, during which one exhibits the symptoms of intermittently and repetitively standing up from the bus stop bench, walking to the curb and occasionally far into the street, and looking far down the approaching roadway only to sit down again immediately thereafter. This can lead to the more permanent condition known as Bus Stop Syndrome which is more prevalent for those who remain in a seated position. Those who are particulary adept at Bus Spotting seem to be immune from this syndrome. The syndrome is alleviated when the awaited bus arrives, and may be accompanied by a bus jig. Another known cure for this syndrome is to quickly slam a beer or another alcoholic beverage while waiting.
Jack, seated: Hey man, if you need to get up and dance around, the bathroom's behind the bus stop, not in front of it!

Moe: No, this thing is supposed to come by every 10 minutes and it's been about 25 since I've been here!

Jack: I think you might have a case of Bus Anxiety. You better crack a beer and get that taken care of.

(noun, pl.) A completely masturbatory work of high school fiction, used by college admissions officials as psyops tests in order to evaluate your personality. These, on college applications, are better left blank, so long as your GPA, SAT, and other tests are in your advantage. Otherwise, sarcastic embellishment is usually required, in the form of a Hail Mary Pass.
Tom: So, how did you do on your college applications?
Michael: Great! I got accepted at all four of my picks, plus the University of Miami, and I didn't even apply there!
Tom: Wow! What did you write for your College essays? I couldn't think of anything but massive bullshit.
Michael: Oh, that's okay. They prolly didn't even read yours. I left all of mine blank, and they didn't care.
Tom: Well, you were a great student.
Michael: It's okay for you though, you just need to choose a less exclusive major.

the passive-agressive act of dramatically apologizing not only for an action which one has committed, but also for things which one has previously committed, has not committed, and would not likely commit, all in an effort to reduce one's culpability for the central action in question. This is similar to a strategy employed by jewish grandmothers, where one apologizes for all things that have ever happened, whether good or bad.
Example of a "Letterman apology":

Dave: ... so my apologies to subjecting them to that vulnerability and being brow-beaten and humiliated, it never occured to me, and as a matter of fact Alan Coulter kept wanting to know if we'd had sex, do you remember that Alan?

Alan: I did and I don't remember.

Dave: So I'll just say I'm terribly sorry ... And now, also because what can it hurt, once again I'd like to apologize to the former governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin...

1. (n.) the visually unpleasant wavelike movement created by the upper lip of a person (who can be considered homeless), while speaking, who is toothless in their front upper teeth.

2. (n.) the condition where a person is speaking in comprehensible language while lacking any semblance of coherence in statement.

Note of Particular Importance:
To any of those possibly afflicted by the effects of witnessing any instance of lip swagger, it is conceived to be beneficial to the possibly afflicted to simultaneously attempt motions with one's head of nodding in agreement, casting aloofly, and empathizing negatively, while moving the body in a waltzing pattern, and while mimicing the expression of the associated emotions.
Damnit, man, put some dentures in! You have some serious lip swagger happening right now.

Ken: So what do you think about that?

Jackson: The thought when you happen that has the creation of many justifications which can be populated by our manifested experience of the viability in the present moment is a conundrum of cacophonies in your psychological arena.

Ken: What?!?! That doesn't mean anything! You're just saying words! That's pure lip swagger!
