Ten Fruit Cakes

Lots of emails about yesterday's words. Aha! I'm getting the general feeling that y'all are feeling lost about what your teenagers and young adults are chatting about! ;-)

To which, they'd yell "WOOT!" (no woohoos, Dee.)

Quickie explanations:

1) emo-queen (whiner, too much angst. I find the youths today don't like PROLONGED discussion of emotions. It's funny. Heartbreak today. Gone by...oh, TWO episodes is enough, 'kay? Because if you're still complaining about it in four, you're an emo-queen. Youth, youth, youth...)

2) tru dat (come on, JR Ward loved this catch phrase in her vampire series. I hear it a lot on radio, especially the ones with Old School or Motown music)

3) blog flog (some people have lots of time and they analyze other people's blogs and flog it with lots of sarcasm. Can be funny. Can be nasty. Mostly snarky. It's also written by lots of embittered ex-fans of a favorite series of books or TV show)

4) You so make me (also "You complete me" as in "Wow, you're so smart because I agree with what you just said!")

5) chick click (those are the websites targeted for clicks. They attract us females to click on them)

6) Snap! (or, O Snap!, depending on sitch) (This is a take off on the Eighties "Two snaps and a butt shake" when something happens that amuses or enlightens or surprises you. Or if someone has a smart alecky or sarcastic comment that you admire, then you say "Snap!" or "O Snap!" It's sort of a "congratulations, what you said was too cool.")

7) T-Squared (as in totally trashy)

8) Alpha Geek (as in the Head Geek, Bill Gates. He's geeky but because he's got power and $$$, he's an Alpha Geek. There are lots of Alpha Geeks on TV, it seems)

9) Ohnosecond (the second you realized you said or did something you shouldn't have. "That was an ohnosecond, wasn't it?")

10) Swiped Out (this is going to happen this Christmas to Yuppies who maxed out their credit cards buying those hi-tech toys)

11) You still livin' in the Dork Ages! ("You're a dork no matter what! You can't keep up with the new words? What's wrong with you?!)

*****************

Hope THAT helps with improving your social and communication skills, bwahaha.

******************

Here are TEN JOBS I've never (or seldom) seen in a romance book held by the manly alpha hero:

1) fashion designer (the hero owns the firm!)
2) figure skater (the hero is the trainer!)
3) bus conductor (the hero designs the bus!)
4) rapper (the hero...hmm...the hero steals the rapper's girl!? LOL.)
5) flight attendant (the hero is the pilot!)
6) newspaper delivery guy (the hero makes the news!)
7) the phone techie for some stupid software (the hero writes the program!)
8) arm pit sniffer (I really found this in the paper. It's a real job!)
9) grave-digger (or mortician. But hey, check out the calendar!)
10) a butt-print painter (again, newspaper article led me to
THIS GUY. You have to watch that video on hi site. Don't laugh. His prints go for $800 per butt. Ahem.) Here is the Newspaper article.

So there, your challenge: a list of new jobs to give to your heroes.

Bear with me while I learn. The first button likes the POST. The second button likes the BLOG site. Please help me by "liking" me. Thanks!

Laur,
This job consist of smelling armpits before and after deodorant, perfume, powder, that kind of thing. So, there, not a job for the alpha hero!
