We guess this is cool?

Although we're not sure our high school English teachers would appreciate it!

Oxford Dictionaries Online is trying to possibly increase its younger audience with a few slang words added to their database, and they do NOT seem like Oxford Dictionary material!

However, it's a new world these days, so maybe this is exactly Oxford Dictionary material!

The online database just added one thousand new words including a bunch of updated slang speak.

And some of the words they've collected are kind of hilarious!

Donatella Versace: I Want To Dress The Queen In Black Leather

donatella-versace-speaks-at-oxford-university.jpg

If only!

Donatella Versace recently spoke at Oxford University where she revealed a few fun tidbits about what she'd like to do with the Queen's fashion and a story about meeting jewelry aficionado Elizabeth Taylor.

She told the students about how she would like to shake things up a bit in Buckingham Palace.

Donatella said:

"I’d like to dress the Queen. She can handle anything. Maybe in black with a little leather, a little rock ’n’ roll."

But, the funniest story involved a ring that Liz was admiring. She tried the piece of jewelry on, but somehow managed to never give it back - except for sending the following note:

"Hey darling, the ring is so beautiful. Thank you so much!"

LOLz! Oh, Liz! Only she could get away with that!

Adele Music Helps Surgery Patients Get Well

Filed under: AdeleMedicineSurgery

Adele music surgery study

Feeling under the weather? Get well with Adele!

A study has found that surgery patients listening to tunes like Someone Like You have less anxiety about the operation AND as a result of being calmer, "recover more quickly."

John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford examined the stress levels of 96 patients and found levels in those listening to enjoyable music were 29% lower than those laying in silence. Study leader Hazim Sadideen explained:

"Undergoing surgery can be a stressful experience for patients and finding ways of making them more comfortable should be our goal as clinicians. There are also good medical reasons — calmer patients may cope better with pain and recover more quickly."

Sometimes music, just like laughter, really is the best medicine.

It's time again for Kate Middleton's "Tour Tuesday".

Today the Duchess of Cambridge visited the Rose Hill primary school in Oxford wearing a cute Orla Kiely Birdie wool jacquard shirt dress, tights and ankle boots.

Kate's visit is in association with Art Room, one of the six charities she chose to support. The organization is aimed at children between the ages of 5-16 who are experiencing emotional and behavioral difficulties and offers art therapy to increase their self-esteem, self-confidence and independence.

Sounds like an amazing program!
