i am currently teaching language change and we try to make a list of the most up to date words we can - this year has been harder than in recent years - obviously all the grime words and computer stuff but further afield it seems to be a bit of a barren year (cue posts to prove me wrong)
i love the use of 'blatant' and 'mish' for something really difficult (usually handing homework in on time) from mission

that's interesting, I though 'mish' was Kiwi Slang. Has been around for many a year here anyway.
