I have just read a blog article with the following slang words. I think I have "Casi ná" to mean "casi náda" and "curro" as slang for "Currelo" for "job". But what about "tipin", "rite rite", "trino" (shouldn't it be "trina"?) and although I understand the individual words in "como suena" I don't get the meaning. Anyone help.

Tipín. diminutive of tipo, meaning body, basically she means she is going to loose weight walking to work, so she is going to have a good body, good figure looks.

rite rite I have never heard it. There is a posibility she may have made a mistake, and it could be "que riete tu de la vicepresidenta", ie, it is considered that despite her age, Fernandez de la Vega has got a good figure.

Como suena it refers to the inmediate previous sentence: Por joder. Si, como suena. Means something like that is exactly what I mean "por joder" which in this case means por ... do I have to explain this?
