|"That's it, I am putting my foot down."|
I have read that some new trend words in the English language include gaslighting, which means to manipulate someone psychologically so that they begin to question their own perceptions and memories. I could swear that people at work gaslight me to make me believe that I can complete paperwork in half of the time that is normal or even physically possible.

It's perhaps doubtful that dench would have succeeded as a new coinage were it not for the fact that it happens to be identical to the surname of Dame Judi Dench, a world-famous British actress latterly associated with the James Bond movies (in which she played 'M', head of the intelligence service). Dame Judi has herself been a very enthusiastic supporter of the word, honored and delighted that her surname is being used as a trendy new adjective. Though this is coincidental rather than deliberate, the actress's positive reaction (and perhaps also the fact that she is recognized the world over as a highly respected and successful individual) has sparked tongue-in-cheek modifications of usage along the lines of That was well Judi dench … or even … That's well Judi.
|"what an amazeball adventure"|
It all reminds me when I took my first art class in college and my final project was described as "wow that is bad". I cried going home really believing that my painting was bad. Of course, it meant good, but hey give this German girl a break. Say what you mean and mean what you say. Oh yes, in German we do have many ways of saying things as well but really would I just "um den heißen Brei herumreden"?
