Are you a mouse potato?

The mouse potato (who spends as much time on the computer as his/her 1990s counterpart did on the couch), the himbo (attractive, vacuous - and male) and the excessively emotional drama queen were among 100 new words added to the 2006 update of America's best-selling dictionary, the Merriam-Webster Collegiate Dictionary.
Read the full article at the NZ Herald. Learned any new words this year? I learned the meaning of the word steampunk.

Lol, mouse potato probably describes me entirely too well! Congrats on your book anniversary. ;)

LOL! I saw the heading for that article but didn't read it. Now I'm glad I know what a mouse potato is. Me!

Hey Loribelle! Hiya Yvonne!

I think we should have a Mouse Potato club ;)

Unfortunately, I think I qualify as a mouse potato too.
