Hey, I can't come out tonight. I just got the last season of Lost on DVD, and I'm marathoning it right now. I can't put it down.

When the pleasure you get watching something on TV comes from your hatred of it.
It's really sad that I learned that technique from hate watching Toddler's & Tiaras

So I was hate watching this liberal/conservative talk show the other day, and the host wouldn't stop talking about healthcare!

A male preening gesture, whereby a man wearing a suit extends both his arms rapidly outwards (i.e. shoot), so that his dress shirt sleeves extend nicely beyond his suit sleeves.
Ready for the big dance? You look good in that suit. Shoot your cuffs for me. There, much better.

I just got the last season of Lost on DVD, and I had to marathon it last weekend. I couldn't put it down.

A boyfriend who is just there to satisfy the need for having a boyfriend.

i.e. someone who is fulfilling short-term needs in your life, but for whom you don't see a long-term purpose.
Eh, he's just a placeholder boyfriend in my life. I hate sleeping alone.


I don't get fazed when I'm into a girl who has a boyfriend. I always just assume that he's a placeholder boyfriend, and that she'll dump him once she finds someone real.

A word used by the tech-savvy to sound smarter than the really are.

More specifically:

A math term that means perpendicular, but not just in 2D but in any dimension. Now commonly used to indicate an idea or concept that stands apart so much from everything else that it "sticks out," is "from left field," or is "third-way."
"I have this co-worker who keeps using the word 'orthogonal,' usually after he mentions some idea he thinks is God's gift to man. Can't wait to get this word into my vocab. Soon as I figure out what it means."
