Adding to the vocabulary

Peter Rost, blogging at The Huffington Post, has a small list of words for 2006, some new, some not so new. According to him, these are important words for surviving the year. My favorites are:
  • BLAMESTORMING: Sitting around in a group, discussing why a deadline was missed or a project failed, and who was responsible.
  • SEAGULL MANAGER: A manager who flies in, makes a lot of noise, craps on everything, and then leaves.
  • SALMON DAY: The experience of spending an entire day swimming upstream, only to get screwed and die in the end.
I knew there was a name for when I had one of those days. Now I know.
