I have a friend that

I have a friend that works in the magazine industry in New York. In an effort to keep me cool (knowing that I'm in Indiana and fashion and coolness arrives here 3 years late), she gave me a head's up regarding new slang being spoken in NYC. I thought I'd share with you:

spenny:
Pricey; short for "expensive." (Sure I like that place, but it's kinda spenny.)

NUMP/NUWT:
Obnoxious party-invite acronyms, as in No Ugly Men, Please/No Ugly Women, Thanks.

e-mauling:
Stalking someone via e-mail.

guyatus:
A hiatus from guys. (Thanks, but no thanks. I'm kind of on guyatus.)

scum:
Self-Centered Urban Male. Know any?

fifty-footer:
Someone who looks really attractive from 50 feet away. Closer examination reveals ...
(Flashback to the movie Clueless, where Cher says, "she's such a Monet.") Similar concept.

Now I can stop using words like "bling bling" and "flossin'."
