This past year for Christmas I asked for A LOT of books. Some of you may be thinking that is pretty lame but I love books especially those with some wit! Most of the books I asked for could be purchased off of amazon and one of my favorite features they offer is the "customers who bought this item also bought…" Whenever I am looking for something to read that is similar to another book I always look here first and it turns out my dad must've had some similar thinking since Christmas morning I opened the most hysterical book that wasn't on my list and should have been. Enter Chic-tionary.
If the cover doesn't already scream blogger then the content will surely convince you. The subtitle even states it is the little book of fashion faux-cabulary. If you know me at all you have probably already been subject to my love of witty puns (have you ever read the title of my blog?) and this book is filled with them! As I flipped through the pages I couldn't help but think of blogging. We tend to have some lingo already but if we could incorporate all of these words and their definitions into our blogs you would probably need a translator!
Whenever I am in search for some blogging inspiration I pull this book off of the shelves on my desk and thumb through it. While I am not going to write a post all about brunetiquette (the etiquette of letting blondes believe they have more fun when that's simply not true) I always think of fun new post ideas when reading through these funny definitions. If you are looking for a good laugh that may even mock you (we should all laugh at ourselves, a lot of these definitions applied to blogging) I highly recommend you pick Chic-tionary up! It would also be such a fun gift for a girl friend!
A few of my favorite definitions:
bunundrum - to top knot or not to top knot? That is the question when you haven't washed your hair in three days.
buy-arreah - uncontrollably buying things without regard for your budget.
credit cardiac arrest - a condition caused by excessive card activity and best treated by a credit cardiologist.
fabstract - how to describe any trend that's dubiously fabulous or so foreign to men that it needs an interpreter.
idol blog worrship - religious like devotion to fashion information not distributed by a glossy magazine.
While they are all pretty materialistic and often times that is how blogs may seem the book is so entertaining and now that you're intrigued you'll have to snag a copy to see the rest!
