P.S. -- Dictionary Offers Cool New Words

You may be more "with it" than you think, if you know the definition to words, like "google," "mouse potato," "drama queen," and "sandwich generation." Any Seinfeld fan can tell you what a "himbo" is -- a male bimbo. Anyway, the Merriam-Webster Collegiate Dictionary has added almost 100 new words to its pages, according to a NewsMax story here. And a Merriam-Webster sampler here. I enjoyed reading about one I didn't know -- "mouse potato," or someone who's the computer version of a couch potato. Check out the list.

Question: What new word do you enjoy using most?
