Word Up, YO! Week 15

This past week’s WOW! was random. No really, that was the actual word! And you guys rocked it in your posts! There were lots of random posts from random people about random stuff. Some people were so freely using the word, that they had more than one random post. It was all just so random!

And we are still feeling all sorts of random so we have a couple of surprises for you…more on that in a minute.

CMG over at Confessions of a Conflicted Mean Girl had as all cheering for her win at Minute-to-Win-It even though we knew how it would probably turn out.

This Made Man is moving up in the ranks and earned her promotion. Congrats CMG! You’re now a Hitman.

Over at Wonder, Friend she had us all laughing (with her, not at her) at her experiences volunteering at Sunday school.

In the eyes of the Nerd Mafia, you are now a Made Man!

And now it’s time for the Dons’ first surprise! Because it’s been such a random week, we decided to randomly select somebody to become a Made Man! It would’ve been pretty obvious to use random.org to select a number, so we did the next best thing…we went to Twitter and asked for somebody to randomly pick a number! And the first number that came up was the number of an already Made Man. The second random number, as chosen by @Mrs4444, was “6”.

Congratulations to CDG at Move Over Mary Poppins!

In the eyes of the Nerd Mafia, you are now a Made Man!

Good luck to all! And maybe next week, you’ll be “made”, too!

Our second surprise is this week’s new WOW!, since it was such random week, we decided to go with a word that was a little more random than normal…check it out below.

Asshat (as defined by allwords.com)
(slang): asshole.
From the slang expression “Having one’s head up one’s ass,” thus, wearing the ass as a hat. The term is extended to people who are clueless or bumbling, who don’t understand what is going on.

You can also play at my partners-in-crimes’ sites, the other two members of the Nerd Mafia:

Liz from a belle, a bean and a chicago dog

Kristin from Taming Insanity

And so it goes…


  1. Um. Okay, what a *random* word. should be fun.

    Congrats to the 3 new Made Men. :)
  2. I have to work today so I have to play tomorrow. I love the word though.
  3. Just too cute. I love it. Now... I need to get it together to get in on the action.
  4. So, am I still demoted? When can I move up from asshat status?
