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
First….Happy Independence Day/Fourth of July to all my lovely American friends! I hope you all have a wonderful day and celebrate well and wonderfully!!! Now…on to a little UWW fun!
Facebook Philosopher: An individual whose Facebook statuses are often clichéd quotes such as “when in doubt, just take the next small step”, “make peace with the past so it doesn’t screw up the present”, or “sometimes it’s hard to understand, but time tells truth.” These give the impression that said Facebook user is wise, when in fact they are merely putting on airs.
Examples Of Use:
Hubby: have you been following Mel’s status on Facebook?
Me: not in particular…just whatever comes through my news feed when I happen to be online. Why?
Hubby: well, she’s turned into quite the little Facebook Philosopher*.
Me: really – how so?
Hubby: here’s some of her status updates from June:
Me: good for her for putting these lovely, positive affirmations out there for the world to enjoy. We could all stand to be a little more of a Facebook Philosopher.
*Mel, only part of the definition applies to you – we don’t think you are “merely putting on airs” but are in fact…wise! So keep being the inspirational Facebook Philosopher that you are. We love it! And thanks for letting me abuse you for this edition of Urban Word Wednesday (I mean, you knew it’d happen eventually, right?! LOL)!

More blog deliciousness here:
- Near died reading Jenny from the Blog’s installment of Fifty Shades of Grey e-cards. If you haven’t read the books, they won’t be as funny but I was on the floor. Riot.
- Fell off my chair reading Myndi Shafer’s post on new reasons to get up in the morning.
