Beyond the Shelf - Urban Dictionary

For those who write, but also for those who just indulge in reading, a dictionary comes in quite handy from time to time. It's nothing to be ashamed of, having to look up certain words and expressions. On the contrary, you'd be stupid if you didn't do this and it certainly adds to the process of learning new things every day. Especially if your dictionary of choice is the Urban Dictionary.

Of course it all starts with reading (a forgotten art) a book (an object used as a coaster, increase the hight of small children, or increase the stability of poorly built furniture), preferably comfortably stretched out on the couch (where you sleep when you get your girlfriend mad; but not mad enough to be kicked out of the house). It might be something you need to read for college (the place where you enter inexorbitant amounts of debt to "learn" things you will never apply once to your actual occupation. Basically, an expensive 4-year waiting period for a paper called "degree") or you'll just read for fun (the best thing to have).

And when you're done with reading you might want to head over to your blog (a meandering, blatantly uninteresting online diary that gives the author the illusion that people are interested in their stupid, pathetic life. Consists of such riveting entries as "homework sucks" and "I slept until noon today.") and write (the art of manipulating ink to do your dirty work) a couple of blog posts, maybe about dictionaries (thing you use to look up words you don't understand with definitions filled with words you don't understand and need to look up to understand the definition of the first word you didn't understand)!

Sounds like a reliable dictionary to you? Great! So head on over and maybe even subscribe to the Word of the Day to get your daily dosis of the Urban Dictionary.

  1. I discovered Urban Dictionary a few years ago, and I check it from time to time, when I want to get a glimpse of what's new in the world of words :)
