What is qwerty tummy and Social Notworking? – find out here

If you love creative new words to describe things you can check out one of my favourite sites Word Spy. I have nothing to do with the site apart from being a big fan.

I love the wit – and in some cases  how the simple tweak of a word or even a letter can make new meanings.

Yes, I’m a self-confessed Word Nerd!

Some cool social media new words or neologisms are:

 

Social Notworking – when you are spending so much time on Social networking sites that you are not working.

 

Querty tummy – when you get sick especially with a stomach virus from working on a germ-laden keyboard.

And on a different topic….

You know about transvestites who like dressing up – well there a new term for people who are not cowboys who like to dress up as cowboys – and they’re called transWESTites

I heard a new word yesterday from a friend who told me that her latest “thing” is to have a crafternoon –getting together with her girlfriends and drinking and eating and chatting and laughing while they did their different craft projects.

Great word!

Here’s a link to more about the crafternoon delight.

If you like words and wordplay, pop culture and sweet diversions – I think we have common interests.

I’m a journalist and musician turned communication trainer and consultant who now gets paid to be a word nerd – helping people improve their writing and presenting.

I’m a massive fan of the communication styles of Obama, Steve Jobs and Bono from U2.

When I like something I tend to really “get into it” – so I’m also a massive fan of Star Wars and  Modern Family and retro.
