This flyer is very confusing; is Kunin being annointed by rats? Wheeler Hall does have a rodent problem, but I didn't know they liked jewelry.

JS: "Moted" is total bay area slang. I'm having junior high flashbacks!

is moted like emoted?

and speaking of slang, when did to emote change from excessive, theatrical display of emotion to just emotion (and perhaps sincerity)?

or have i just not drunk my coffee?

Moted is embarrased or ashamed. It used to be "molded" but mutated over time.

Someone we know has been saying "eems" for "emo", which seems to be used only for guys in bands. Emote, emo, eems... soon we'll just say "eee".

ka: i always thought it came from "(de)moted"...as in, you just got clowned so hard you are now officially demoted...

and yeah, the only time i realize how ingrained bay area slang is in my diction is when i leave the bay area and people don't really know what i'm talking about...
