Slang Gang Word of the Day - Two for one special

flat out

To be extremely busy.

Jane: It's lunch time. You want to go grab a bite to eat?

Kate: Thanks, but I can't right now - I'm flat out...

(for the record - I feel flat out)

boxset bully
Person who pushes you to watch huge quantities of their favorite TV show by offering to lend you the massive DVD boxset.

Applies to: Lost, The Wire, Band of Brothers, Battlestar Galactica, West Wing, Heroes , Dexter, Family Guy etc

No, I've not seen The Wire. I'm sure the script is superb, but I'm not willing to spend a week watching all 60 episodes, you boxset bully.

(does NOT apply to The Office or Scrubs. Both of which are worthy of spending a week or two watching ALL the episodes)

I love Scrubs!

I TOTALLY understand the Boxset Bully. My home teacher just dropped off the first 2 seasons of Psych and I have started watching them.

I likey :)

I am flat out after this mornings workout.
