selfie: word of the year

In Holland we choose the word of the year.
A word which is new and used a lot during that year

This year it is the word 'selfie', a bit strange because it's almost an english word...
But also the meaning of the word is a bit funny, I think.
People are taking pictures of themselves and place them on social media.

I'm often surprised when I see people in the middle of the street,
suddenly stand still to take a 'selfie' of themselves.
Redo their hair and looking in the camera with an appealing smile
They don't seem to notice their environment.
that surprises me and makes me smile :-)

I wonder what new words and phenomenons will pop up next year...
