word of the year

I don’t honestly know anything about the New Oxford American Dictionary or why I should care what they think – they’re not one of *my* 31 dictionaries – but I do like their word of the year, “unfriend.” As in, “Once a former colleague unfriended me because of  a comment I wrote on her Facebook status.” (She sheepishly refriended me a few weeks later – I’d never even noticed.)

    It was a…pessimistic, shall we say, remark about the place we worked together. We agreed that this was particularly amusing because it’s nothing she hadn’t said many times.
