A quote in a email from my mother this week "Of course I'll have to run it by the appropriate peeps at work."
Not being of the young social-networking-addicted set myself, what I envision when I see "peeps" are these:
My mom had a great fondness for them, so Peeps always appeared in our Easter baskets as kids, regardless of how well we liked them or not in any given year.
Now she has a fondness for Facebook, and it appears to be affecting her slang vocabulary. One sort of expects this to happen with one's children, but clearly my mom is a special case :)
I've been chuckling all week.
