Go Super to Listen Go Super!

It’s pretty common for young Hollywood stars to lead crazy lives off-screen. Take Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan, for instance. You’re more likely to find them dancing on tables than veging out at home on a Friday night. Or a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday night, for that matter.

But the actress Kirsten Dunst says she is different. She would rather stay in and do nothing than go out and be wild. She is a famous movie star who has appeared in films like Spider Man. But when she isn’t working, she likes to veg out.

The expression veg out comes from the word vegetable. A vegetable doesn’t do much. It just sits around on the table or in your refrigerator. So someone who acts like a vegetable by veging out doesn’t do anything but sit around.

Do you like to veg out, or do you prefer to be active during your free time?

“I was veging out at home with some friends yesterday. We watched TV for about 7 hours.”

I think this slang expression is a little similar to the the Couch potatoes slang. I kind of like this new slang because it tells me to slow down a little bit in my busy life,relax and appreciate the great things in life such as eating all my vegetables and not just beef I do not think that this slang implies to be a lazy bum and not do anything at home, vegging out tells me to have fun at home maybe by just reading slowly and quietly a great book at home.

Juninho, the correct usage is double"g", vegging out. According to the grammar rules if it a one-syllable word which ends in a consonant and a vowel precedes this consonant then in the Progressive (Continuous) Tenses the last consonant is doubled as is the case with "vegging out". Other examples may include, let – letting, run – running etc.

I like veging out on weekend. Home is a warmest place to stay and I don't need to think about many things except daydream. For me, veging out is the best way to relax.
