Haters - The word used by the ZA’s to describe people who post hateful and spiteful comments on celebrity blogs, especially those that inhabit Zanessa-related threads.
Zaquiris and Zacuilas - Special ZA cocktails that are consumed at our cyber-parties and cyber-luau’s. If you’ve never been to a cyber-party, you don’t know what you’re missing!
FFotW – The abbreviated term for our Fanfic of the Week segment (because seriously, who can be bothered typing out the whole thing all of the time).

Kangaroo A.D.D. - Anytime a ZA in conversation with fellow ZA’s experiences delayed reactions not consistent with the time or continuum. Mocking and/or light jeering may result from others who notice this lapse. This term originated in an online blog Zac Efron penned during his travels to Australia.
‘The Hotness’ - A word used to describe Zac’s aura and startling good looks. Be warned, ‘the hotness’ has exhibited potential to penetrate through television/ movie screens and run off. Containment of ‘the hotness’ is neither suggested or encouraged. If found, do not attempt to capture ‘the hotness’.
Efron - Used as a swear word. I know there’s been a time Angels when you wish you could swear, but for whatever reason you couldn’t. Never fear “Efron” to the rescue. Here are some of my favorites. “It’s a damn Efron shame” “It’s about Efron time” “Shut the Efron up” As you can see the list goes on. What will your favorite Efron saying be???
Pulling a Dee - Using any means necessary to secure access to an otherwise off-limits area in the pursuit of Zac or Vanessa. Refer to the Mission Accomplished post for details.
OMEG - Oh my Efron God
Zexting - Frequent text messaging surrounding ‘the hotness’. Usually done when your focus should be elsewhere (i.e. at work, school, during a meeting, a restaurant, a birthday party… you get the idea!)
‘In the presence’ – This expression, emotion, whatever you’d like to call it is only allowed to be used when standing before and/or around ‘the hotness’. Let’s use it in a sentence: When I found myself in the presence, words failed me.
Vashley-The nickname the ZA Angels blog refers to the duo consisting of Ashley Tisdale and Vanessa Hudgens.
What the Efron Are You Thinking? (WtEAYT) - The abbreviated term (because we LOVE our abbreviations!) for a feature on the blog where we provide a photo and ask the viewers to tell us what Zac/Vanessa were thinking in it. (i.e. In the above photo Zac is thinking to himself __________.)
Blame it on Efron - A popularly used sentiment in lieu of finding the responsible culprit to the maelstroms of our lives. Failed a test? Blame it on Efron. Not sleeping like you used to? Blame it on Efron. Global warming? Blame it on Efron (for his hotness is literally burning up the o-zone!) We don’t reallyblame Efron for these things, it’s just easier to place the fault on him, haha!
“Not true”- Infamous words uttered by Vanessa the night of Zac’s 20th birthday dinner at Orso restaurant. We’ve taken a liking to using it in protest to things that are farce and simply… not true.
“Kidding!”- Arguably the most annoying line delivered by Gabriella during her poolside banter with Troy in HSM2. (“Your shoes don’t match. Kidding!) It’s a surefire way to garner a wince or eye roll from fellow ZA’s.
“Efrontabulous!”- To be used in sheer moments of joy and/or excitement.
Zef/Zefron-Shorter abbreviation for Zac on the rare occasion when the “hotness” is not applicable and/or too long of a word to spell out (especially when “Zexting”).
Rated Zac- An (unofficial) fanfiction.net rating, when situations/content of a sexual nature exceed the highest rating “M”. In this case, “Rated Zac” can be used to describe a scenario that is so hot, it’s rated Zac. Proceed with caution when met with this warning. (Created by: Dani and Nel)
