New term learned at High Voltage ConFusion

Shapnhower: a shag, a nap, and a shower.

Typically done at an SF con between the hours of 4 and 6 pm (prior to dinner) but possibly at other times. Also spelled Shapnhaur, in honor of Dr. Shapnhaur, a visit to whom may be alluded to as an invitation to the above.

e.g. "What have you been up to since the movie?" "Shapnhaur."

(pr: shop-en-ow-er)

...There's something about the term shag that's so brightly forthright it can't quite be embarrassing. I learned the term 'shapnhower' Sunday evening (I have loved some of the dinner table conversations at this year's con) and I've already become quite fond of it.
