Jan 18 Word of the Day
1. Blue Monday is the most depressing day of the year, calculated by Dr. Cliff Arnall, a researcher at the University of Cardiff's Center for Lifelong Learning.
Factors used to calculate the date included weather conditions, debt level, time since Christmas, time since failing our New Year's resolutions, low motivation and feeling the need to take action.

In 2005 the date was calculated as January 24th, in 2006 it was January 23rd, and in 2007 it was January 22nd.

2. A song by the hard rock band Orgy from their album Candy Ass.
1. Guy: "Aw man, I feel like absolute shit today."
Friend: "Yeah, same here. I hate Blue Monday."

2. "I wish I could sing Blue Monday to my ex-girlfriend, she's such a bitch."

A kickass Canadian Indie band. Emily Haines (the lead singer) redefines awesome. Finally, the Canadians made something Americans will love.
Randy: "I just bought Metric's newest album. I love it."
Paul: "Yea, they suck! Listen to some good music like Green Day, John Mayer, or Linkin Park!"

Randy then proceeds to push Paul's lifeless body into the Hudson.

Horrible band consisting of a bunch of retards. 60% of the reason they suck
is because they suck dicks on the side to pay rent, the other 40% is that they're Canadian. Not saying all Canadians suck, just the semi-sucessful ones.
Char: Oh my god! Metric rocked!
Ben: No, Metric is gay, besides, I hear they suck live.

Chill, euphoric, awesome. Better than the usual. Something similar to the feeling of an awesome rave.

Probably drawn from the idea that the metric system is "better" than other systems.
A$AP Rocky: How was that young party last night?

Lil Wayne: Yo dawggg, that shit was metric AF.

Call center slang. This word encompasses the statistics that are taken on call center agents to determine their worth. Usually includes average handle time (AHT), wrap, hold time and a few other basic metrics as well as a few 'spin' metrics added by the client to give the client a feeling of control.
They said Rob got canned because of poor metrics, but we all know the real reason.
