So, I am at my favorite adult beverage imbibing establishment with my buddy.

Some chick asks my buddy if he parties. He had know idea that means something other than , well, just having a good time... ( either did I).

Apparantly, that means that you do blow, we found out later.

Well, are there any other cool hip terms for identifying like minded indviduals that I should be aware of...

Please bring me into the new millenium.

I think that some terms are relative to whom you’re speaking and where you’re at. In the early 80’s if a girl in a bar asked if you liked to party that meant “Would you like to spend the night having unprotected sex.” In the late 90’s at a Love and Rockets show I asked this very well dressed attractive woman if she would like to go back stage and burn one. She said yes and we went back stage. I went to get some drinks and when I came back she was smoking crack. When I said WTF she said you said that you wanted to burn one. One of my step kids is into ICP and some times I have no idea what he is talking about. One of his friends calls everyone “B” I would be ok with it if it meant bastard but no it means bitch. I might be an old bastard but I am not a bitch. In San Francisco last year I lit a pipe incorrectly and the kids freaked out it seems the first person who lights a pipe is supposed to light just the edge and they even had some term to describe my rudeness. In Miami a few years ago I asked a friend of a friend who smelled of MJ if he could hook me up with a little something something and he goes “Yea Yea”. I said what kind and how much and he says Colombian for 40 an 1/8. I said that is kind of expensive but I will take it and he whips out a big bag of coke. So I found out that Yea Yea means cocaine not yes yes. Sorry to ramble all I meant to say I think the new term for a one night stand is “hook up”. I think the term “Party” can mean drug harder than MJ or alcohol! No sexual connotation! Cool is still cool but hip is right out.

Mr. Natural, are you sure what you heard wasn't "Yay-Oh". That's the phoenetic spelling - it's spelled llello I believe. That's a pretty common term for coke or crack now.

Next time your stepson's friend calls you B, you ought to say "Why don't you step out in the yard with me and we'll see who is whose B." That would piss me right off. Although I imagine he probably does it more out of habit than disrespect.

This was a funny thread to read today, b/c I just had a girl text message me last Thursday asking if I wanted to party, which to me means alcohol and/or coke + sex. She's a notorious cock tease so I didn't take her up on the offer.

www.urbandictionary.com is your friend.

I found out that "dro" is slang for good pot and not necessarily pot that is grown using hydroponics.

SICK used to mean well you know... puke, gag, ill, etc.

Now days SICK means just the opposite... cool, awesome, sweet, etc.

By "nowadays" you mean since 1990 or so, right? ;)

I think another warning that we're getting old is when we no longer have any idea how to shake someone's hand. I keep trying to remember which damned secret handshake the hipsters are using this week... and I always seem to guess wrong.

I'm going to speak for the younger generation and totally apologize for how we are.

But it doesn't help at all when one of my friend's moms is yelling at me because I'm stoned but don't know what she means when she says "Smoke more dope."

Us kids aren't the only ones that have confusing slang. =P

Also: To my friends and I, "Partying" is doing anything. As far as we're concerned, even if we go to smoke a spliff alone, we call it partying. Hell, when we go to hang out totally sober, we call it partying. Just differs from who you talk to.

TVCasualty: Don't worry. I'm nineteen and I still can't figure out all the fuckin' handshakes. It gets awkward when you go to shake someone who is slightly older than you but acts like a kid a bit... Yeah, it gets really convoluted from here.

if i see someone who is around my age and they say "hows it going?" is now more like "whats up?" and "wuzzup" doesnt have to be a question but can stand alone as a greeting not expecting a response. so now hello is co-opted into wassup or even shorter, 'sup and an upward nod.
"wuzzup?" could substitute for "whats happening?" if you asked it with a question.

so then you could respond, "nothin', you know, jus' chillin', hangin' in there, same ol' f-ed up, hammered, blazed, stupid, stoned...." or a combination

"wazzup man?"
"same ol' sh** you know, got f-ed up stupid on super dank chron, slammed 40's an' got hammered, fool" - gotta throw a fool in there depending on who your talkin to and how drunk each person is.

If someone has a cigar and calls it a cabbie, don't smoke it... Also, avoid anything called heamy or flakes.
:smokin::dead:
Good luck...

Muggles used to be slang for marijuana cigaretes. Now it's being used in Harry Potter books as slang for regular humans. How in the Hell did that happen?

Agreed.

Plus, I was once spending some quality time with a woman who turned out to be a crack whore. I wanted to get some pot, and we almost needed an interpreter to make it happen. It did happen, after I bought her some crack- but I nearly ended up with some (nearly) useless crank (methamphetamine) along the way.

In short, don't be afraid to say "hey, um, what?". They'll laugh at you, but they'll spell it out for the old guy.

Edit

Once upon a time, a "lid" was a ounce. Nowadays, who knows? But I'd probably still buy it.

I saw that in Cheech and Chong too and was also wondering what it meant. My guess would be that a "lid" would have been a mason jar filled to the lid? From watching that movie i know it is definately way more than a quarter.

A lid was what would fit in a Prince Albert tobacco tin lid...about an ounce. I must be old too because I remember lids and we used to sell weed by "fingers" instead of weighing it. A four finger bag was considered a lid and was about $20. Anyone remember disco biscuits, reds, christmas trees, black beauties, yellow jackets, pink hearts, speckle birds, white crosses, bennies, soapers,crystal T...the list goes on and on ...
