Sentence: I realized after several minutes of Jack's silence on the telephone that he was being quite the incommunicommando by sending a text message while he was trying to talk to me. The quiet beeping noise followed by the text tone in his phone as well as the notion that he had no idea what we had been talking about gave him away.

Reflects the "without paying attention to any of them" part of the definition so very strongly! - silveryaspen, 2008-02-28: 09:54:00

Churf

Created by: silveryaspen

Pronunciation: churf

Sentence: Switcheroo Sam was doing a net surf on his lap top, with his Ipod in his left ear, and his cell phone to his right ear, text messaging on the cell phone he borrowed from his sister, with one eye on his tv, while he used his toe to switch channels on his CB radio, as his police scanner hummed in the background. He was a grand master of the churf!

Etymology: CH for Channeling, u for you, and urf for surf = CHURF ... meaning CHANNELING YOUrself while YOU SURF among your electronic devices. Does churfing make a person a churf serf (slave to their electronic devices), too?
