    Gosh, is this lame.  From today's www.dailycandy.com:

    DailyCandy Lexicon IV If you've been a DailyCandy subscriber for a while,
you know the drill. Lexicons. We love words almost as much as we love <A HREF="http://www.dailycandy.com/candy/archive.jsp?Cat=D&city=1">food</A>, <A HREF="http://www.dailycandy.com/candy/archive.jsp?Cat=F&city=1">
fashion</A>, and <A HREF="http://www.dailycandy.com/candy/archive.jsp?Cat=U&city=1">fun</A>. If you're new to the game, allow us to debrief you. So
enthusiastic were the responses to Lexicon installments <A HREF="http://www.dailycandy.com/candy/article.jsp?ArticleId=15788&city=1">I</A>, <A HREF="http://www.dailycandy.com/candy/article.jsp?ArticleId=15918&city=1">II</A>, and <A HREF="http://www.dailycandy.com/candy/article.jsp?ArticleId=16192&city=1">III</A> that
we keep a file of words we pick up along the way as well as words we create
when we see the lack of a better word out there. (Like "stray." Stray? C'mon,
like you don't know one. A stray is the term for a straight man who everyone
secretly believes is gay.)

So without further ado, we present the DailyCandy Lexicon IV:

E-mailing when drunk -- i.e., drunk e-mailing

The drugged-out sensation one gets when poring over spreadsheets or
instruction manuals; acronym for "my eyes glaze over"

Gross, nasty; hybrid term -- raunchy meets skanky

Pronounced "goo;" acronym for "geographically undesirable." (Great guy and
all, but totally gu -- he lives all the way in Boerum Hill!)
