Slang Gang word of the day


February 3: Vaguebooking

An intentionally vague Facebook status update, that prompts friends to ask what's going on, or is possibly a cry for help.

Mary is: "wondering if it is all worth it"


Mark is: "thinking that was a bad idea"

Example:

"Have you talked to Mark? He's vaguebooking again. I wonder if he's back with Mary..."

Opposite:

Tammy is: "in line at the grocery store"

**We all know at least ONE Vaguebooker and we hate it don't we?**

I'm so tired of facebook but I just cant seem to quit. My peeve of facebook is when you say hello to someone and they never respond back. How cold is that!!??

Ice cold, baby.

I seriously JUST read one. "My heart is broken, but I can't step down. How do you go back to someone who could have killed you? I'll miss you, Mom. I hope you wake up some day."

It's only 50% vague, but 100% disturbing.

I hate facebook altogether, I think. I just can't force myself to care about it. Am I a crochety old woman???
