Urban Word Wednesday: Nerdjacking

Welcome to Urban Word Wednesday! New words, phrases, and sayings I am learning (and using in my day-to-day life) brought to you by ME…and the Urban Dictionary. You are gonna love these!

Nerdjacking: in conversation, digressing into extreme and/or unnecessary detail about one’s passion (music, writing, gaming) to an otherwise uninitiated layperson, without awareness or acknowledgement of the listener’s rapidly waning interest or lack of understanding of the subject at hand.

Examples Of Use:

Natalie held Kim’s attention briefly, until she began nerdjacking the conversation by talking about the difference between WordPress and Blogger and the usefulness of Google Analytics for 10 uncomfortable minutes.

Guilty of nerdjacking? Do tell…Share the wealth…

  3. Thanks for the laugh. It’s always great to have funny handles for things, it helps you keep a sense of humour when it happens. Hubby can be a nerdjacker about his music software and I can nerdjack him with details of social networking. NOw, I’ll be able to stop and say – whoops, I’ve nerdjacked the conversation. Sorry.

    • Absolutely. I love to rock out with new slang. Hubby and I nerdjack each other’s conversations ALL the time – him about IT stuff and me by all this blogosphere fun. I am sure we can see each of the other glaze over but we keep on going anyway. 🙂 Thanks for the visit and the twitter follow!!

  4. I had no idea there was a term for this…I will be posting this one at the office.
