I Feel Smarter Already!

Here are two new words to add to your vocabulary:

renovacation - [ren-uh-vey-key-shuhn] (noun, Greek) Taking time off from work, but staying home to renovate your apartment.

lunchus interruptus - [luhnch-us-in-tuh-ruhpt-is] (noun, Greek) Eating lunch in the courtyard outside of your office building, only to be chased away by water dripping from above from an unknown (and possibly dirty) source.

Does Lunchus Interruptus also apply to when colleagues hunt you down to demand immediate assistance with something banal?
