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.

One of many modern online drama queen terms to describe someone thats removed them selves from you on the net, completely.

Friend 1: How did your 3rd date with that Joe guy go? I know you were super pumped about it and that you'd been talking to him all week.
Friend 2: Oh Caspar? Not so good.
Friend 1: I thought his name was Joe.
Friend 2: His driver's licence says Joel, but we talked for hours every single day for two weeks and had a wonderful night, then boom. Radio silence. So yeah. If he was the kind of guy who thinks ghosting is okay then he wasn't worth my time.
