I've been reading bits from here and there about what the Word of the Year might be.
Of those I've read about, I like staycation (a vacation that doesn't involve travel) and monumentous -- a great hybrid if ever there was one.
But my candidate -- at least for its arrival as a completely new word (I bet I'm not alone in this admission) is what happened to our Parliament: prorogue.
I'm also partial to the new significance that tossing one's shoes has taken on -- not just what you do when you walk in the door.
Happy Last Day of 2008.
