On a ship: Working during the time between the point you started to fake you are injured (or sick) and the time you can get your actual medical advice to leave the vessel. You have to be present and work as much as you can, but you need to stress out that you can not work up to 100% and you need to moan and look miserable whenever someone sees you.
- Hey Babbaloo, I heard you have an accident on the stairs. What the fuck are you doing here?
- Oh, I'm just ghosting in the Laundry till we get to Wienna and I can go on sick leave.

The act of logging onto the social chatting program Windows Live Messenger (MSN) and setting your status as offline. This allows you to converse with only the select people you want, and prevents you from being talk-attacked by every single person on your contact list, or being bothered in general.
Delia - Hey Jerry, did Dave talk to you last night on MSN?
Jerry - No, he wasn't on.
Delia - Yes he was, he was just ghosting.
Jerry - Damn! He needs to stop doing that to me.

Sneaking up on someone and scaring the shit out of them; also, mysteriously appearing at a certain point without other people knowing how you got there.
"There has been a lot of ghosting going on this house lately and it needs to fucking stop."

"Michael ghosted the shit out of Susan this morning."

"Andrew came downstairs and ghosted Susie when she was getting ready for work."

When a recumbent bicycle rider passes a diamond frame bicycle rider quickly (like a ghost in the night).
Lets go ghosting,... I want to show those fools on their diamond frames how slow they are.

The act of covertly observing other people having a good time - due either to shyness or creepiness.

Ghosting is the aftermath of being dead. Finding something funny then saying dont kill me, you become temporarily speechless. This is when ghosting comes into play.
