A vacation that is spent at one's home enjoying all that home and one's home environs have to offer.
Even though I live and work in New York, I don't always get to enjoy all it has to offer, what with my work commitments, but I sure did have an awesome time here during my spring staycation.

P1: Hey Bob, check out my new Quadroid handset.
P2: *groan* I need a staycation.

P1: DAMN IT YOU FREAKS!!! STOP WITH THE ASS-GRABBING BUZZ-WORDING OVER-HYPING BASTARDIZING-JARGON BASED MARKETING BS!
P2: Uh oh, looks like someone needs a staycation!
