Book DescriptionAs the subtitle states The CHICK tionary covers From A Line to Z Snap the Words Every Woman Should Know Containing 450 words that no woman can live without well I could do without cameltoe and cankles The CHICK tionary is that rarest of reference books one with attitude and a sense of humor Organized by alphabetical order like a real dictionary The CHICK tionary is erfect for browsing for a giggle or for times when you hear a term and wonder exactly what it meansMy ThoughtsI m one of those clueless dorks who is aware of various A Treason of Thorns pop culture terms but don t really know what they mean For example back when MILF started floating around I was mystified about what it stood for Same for when cougar started being bandied about I d have to ask Mr Jenners what those terms meant and have to endure both his incredulity and mocking So for someone who iserennially out of touch with op culture slang The CHICK tionary helps me save face and seem with it Also this was my first glimpse into all the ossibilities of what could be done with your Martha, du nervst!: Von einem anderen Umgang mit Demenz pubic hair from landing strip to vajazzle to merkin I had NO IDEA there were so manyossibilities for that areaBesides illuminating me about the meaning of various terminology The CHICK tionary was a fun read as well Anna Lefler has a sense of humor and she s not afraid to use it or tell it like it is Perhaps the best way to convey the tone and feel of the book is to share a few of the definitions with you Beta Baby noun The heavily scrutinized first child born into a circle of female friends The beta baby rovokes a spectrum of reactions among group members ranging from fascination and affection to annoyance and naked envy depending on the friend s current marital andor relationship status and the degree to which the beta baby disrupts the group Although scientists work to ioneer methods for testing the resilience of the female friendship dynamic it is unlikely that a effective instrument than the beta baby will ever be developed Poncho noun What is it about a Zeugen aus der Todeszone poncho What does that uestion even mean Anyway aoncho is like a tarp for a erson you throw it on op your head through a hole and most everything is covered The The Transformation of Intergovernmental Satellite Organisations: Policy and Legal

selling them here today right now We ve got CASH A New Kind of Public: Community, Solidarity, and Political Economy in New Deal Cinema, 1935-1948 peopleMy only real complaint is that Lefler neglected to include a definition for hooking up which Mindy Kaling rightlyoints out in her book Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me needs to be defined Does it mean sex a rigorous bout of kissing I think Lefler missed out a chance to define this most nebulous of terms which certainly cries out for a definition as it leaves me terribly confused whenever I read US WeeklyRecommended for This light and breezy

are have already come a long way towards fluency in girl speakEnter The CHICK tionary Anna Lefler s new resource guide which includes 450 words no woman can live without though I must say I could live without a few of the crass wordsdefinitions included To be honest I m not totally. The CHICKtionary is a humorous dictionary of the words and hrases women use and what they really mean when they use them The book corrals than 450 ter. ,
Sure if the book is meant for women or for men but I think both would enjoy reading itIn fact The Maestro and I both had a few laughs by randomly opening it and reading definitions on topics from fashion to relationships and everything in between He learned a lot and maybe he ll understand all of his girls a bit better now Plus did I mention we laughed a lotHere is the very first entry in the book A line adjective This term describes a skirt dress or similar garment whose silhouette flares out from the waist becoming wider toward the hem and creating a shape that resembles both the letter A and a teepee although for some reason the term teepee line never caught on Fitted at the waist and relaxed everywhere else the A line silhouette is both flattering to most figures and comfortable to wear More importantly however the A line will not divulge your figure flaws no matter how much it is waterboarded unlike other garments that will happily sell your secrets all over town see also encil skirtAnd since I know you re dying to know just what Ms Lefler has to say about a This Deleuzian Century: Art, Activism, Life pencil skirt Pencil Skirt noun Named for its straight slender silhouette theencil skirt is a very opular garment with women who appreciate classic body skimming style It s worth noting however that unless you re buying the skirt for your twelve year old son you can expect to make a trip to the tailor because as a rule women are not shaped like encilsThis book is full of fun little definitions just like that which only we girls truly understand And as much as I love the one encil skirt that is hanging in my closet it only gets worn when I am under a specified weight and since I am currently over that weight it is gathering dust because I am never shaped like a encil Ever And I love me some A line skirts amen Can you define these terms bag hag Dude Biffle George Glass Kryptonite Guy Well then you need to Networking for Career Success: 24 Lessons for Getting to Know the Right People pick up the handy Chick tionary From A Line to Z Snap the Words Every Woman Should Know by Anna Lefler Included in this hotink aperback are often 450 terms that every woman has heard but may not know what it means This revents you from stumbling over a reply to any of the terms listed above because you don t know what to say because you have no clue what they are talking aboutTo DE mystify the terms listed above by the Chick tionary terms in the book are as followsBag Hag More flattering known as a Zheng Guogu purse enthusiast the bag hag is the woman who tirelessly and annoyinglyursues a state of erfect handbag self actualization through aggressive acuisition of every it bag that comes on the market A willing slave to the whims of designer supply and demand the bag hag happily announces that her man Silvio at Barneys just bumped her up on the wait list for the new Balenciaga In contrast a self roclaimed bag hag is simple a woman who loves Frںuhzeit Des Ostslaventums purses but knows her limitations and is satisfied to worship the objects of her affection from afarDude Biffle a variation of BFFL best friend for life the dude biffle is the male version of the female biffle Filling the gap between the female friend and the GMF see also gay male friend the dude biffle is someone who regardless of attractiveness or availability is never given romantic consideration but rather bypasses any sexual tensions and lands directly in the best friend categoryGeorge Glass Originally invented by Jan on the Brady Bunch after Marcia Marcia Marcia won yet another boy s heart George Glass is now the generic term for an imaginary boyfriendKryptonite Guy The one man in your lifeast or resent against whom your womanly superpowers are useless No matter how many tough talks your friends give you no matter how many times you swear him off for good you are a sitting duck for this guy again and againSo as you can see if any of your teens come home referring to any of these TERMS YOU NOW KNOW PRECISELY JUST you now know recisely just to answer them At the very least this book will serve as a delightful reminder that everyone has a skeleton in her closet right next to her fat Whose Life Is It Anyway?: Living through your 20s on your own terms pants I received this book compliments of TLC Book Tours for my honest review and found it very amusing to know there are now terms out there for virtually anything Be warned there are some sexuallyrovacative terms in this book so it is not a book for teens with that being a book for teens With that being I would rate this book a 4 out of 5 stars Ask any man and he will tell you that women have a language all their own It s true There are issues related to being female that are universal and understood by women of all ages nationalities creeds races whatever You don t have to be bosom friends or even speak the same language to understand when another woman says to you Does this make me look fat This was The Rumsfeld Way: The Leadership Wisdom of a Battle-Hardened Maverick probably my most favorite definition Does This Make Me Look FathraseA seemingly straightforward yet treacherous uestion that reuires different responses depending on the gender of the erson to whom it is addressed When asked of a male the reply must be a swift and emphatic No Ideally this will be followed immediately with glowing modifiers such as You look hot and Are you kidding You need to gain a few ounds hon When asked of a female an honest response is acceptable rovided it is couched in camouflage comments that blame the unflattering appearance on the hateful designer lousy dressing room lighting andor cheap construction of the offending garmentSeriously a funny book I don t know that it s one you d sit down and read cover to cover but it s one that is hysterically funny to read in snatches It would make a terrific gift for the girlfriend with a healthy sense of humorMany of the topics and definitions are mature definitely a PG 13 rating but I found nothing rofane or inappropriately vulgar Rather many definitions were straightforward I found myself educated and enlightened at times as there were many words that I didn t know This is just a funny book and one that will have you nodding in understanding and laughing out loud There are two things that I never miss an opportunity to tell my husband 1 He s damn lucky2 He s damn lucky that I am not a high maintenance girl Now high maintenance isn t among the 450 words no woman can live without that are included in Anna Lefler s The CHICK tionary although it 29 and Counting: A Chick's Guide to Turning 30 a Chick's Guide to Turning 30 probably should be but that s not theoint The oint is that before reading this I never realized how lacking I am in the girly girl department Girly girl is included in The CHICK tionary Although I think I just used it in the wrong context Because I will never be mistaken for being an ista anything or a Goddess or a Diva I am apparently missing out on like HALF THE WORLDThat would be the half of the world that runs on all things female The half of the world that knows about such crucial

near the Hoo Ha everything from waxing techniues to the instruments used at the Gynie Lest you all think I m some sort of a Hot Mess when it comes to these things I did recognize uite a considerable number of terms included in The CHICK tionary For example Anna has the whole male relationshipFlirtationship spectrum covered defining everything from Friends with Benefits to the Himbo to the George Glass who is not to be confused with the Kryptonite Guy while clarifying the all important difference between the Office Spouse and the Internet Spouse The CHICK tionary as one might expect is a light and fun and humorous read It s fresh in a good way In the way that Anna defines it ong 74 This is a book to give your BFF or your Biffle for her Bachelorette Party or for her Unwedding or just when she is feeling Wifed than MILFedThis is Communicating With Animals : The Spiritual Connection Between People and Animals probably not the book to have on the nightstand in the guest room when your conservative in laws come to visit Or if you do make it an unhighlighted versionAnna knows the world of the chicks As well as those who are chic according to my Betty who claims that Ms Lefler seople have the wrong variation of Chick in the title A Chick is a baby chicken my all knowing Betty states adamantly A Chic Robot Programming pronounced chick in her vernacular is someone who walks around in bikinis all the time That book because it isink and LOOKS like it is for eople who walk around in bikinis all the time should be called The Chic tionary Good Lord I think my 10 year old has a better handle on this girl stuff than I do Still regardless of whether you are a Chick or a Chic or someone who is a hot mess when it comes to understanding Chicks and Chics don t despairAnna Lefler can be your Wingwoman too Still wondering how it is that women communicate in such odd and sometimes seemingly telepathic ways Wonder no longer Anna Lefler s debut non fiction novel The Chicktionary From A line to Z snap the words every woman should know shares the essential verbiage for communicating effectively and intelligently without looking like a hot mess This was a hysterical look at some of the terms used on an almost every day basis in my life Yes growing up with two sisters and no brothers I m retty well versed in the sometimes subtle or not so subtle ways women communicate What was hilarious about Lefler s book was her ability to Our Fake Relationship put each word into a specific scenario in such a short amount of space Take thehrase I Hate You for exampleThis is one of those expressions that is as they say all in the delivery If spoken in a menacing or even straightforward manner it s meaning is well The Blitzkrieg Legend pretty clear If on the other hand it s exclaimed by one female to another with a seemingly warm or jovial inflection it becomes a complex expression of admiration andor envy An example of this subtle use of thehrase might be Omigod that dress makes you look so skinny I hate you It s important to realize that when someone uses this expression with you she look so skinny I hate you It s important to realize that when someone uses this expression with you she does in some small way hate you The Crown p 97 The Chicktionary by Anna LeflerIt s endings like that that have you rolling on the ground laughing because honestlywho hasn t said or thought that very thing at oneoint in their life If you haven t you Über Nacht probably need to spend hanging out with your girlfriends In somelaces it did remind me that I need to get together with my sisters again in the very near future actually To be honest after reading it I felt a bit of Ad Astra pressure to incorporate as many words as I could from the book into my review but I m just not that funny I ll leave that to Anna as she haserfected the artAnna Lefler has a knack for knowing just how women think and The Chicktionary is brilliant It s obvious Lefler spent countless hours with other women because I m not sure how you could come up with all the terms found in this little gem Even after growing up in a family of all girls where my father constantly felt like the odd man out I still discovered a few new terms to add to my own Chicktionary If you are in need of either a fantastic guidebook to women s communication or simply a laugh out loud afternoon of reading then you must ick up The Chicktionary by Anna LeflerMy original review was osted at Chick Lit Reviews and News Anna Lefler stand up comedian and writer at Life Just Keeps Getting Weirder has a fresh intelligent sense of humor that shines in The Chicktionary Meant as a reference book to the sometimes mystifying and always evolving language of women Lefler s satirical book is a barrel of laughsFrom bandeau From the French word meaning there s no way that s staying up to clitoris the original Like button Lefler s book is amusing and informative though it occasionally verges on TMI speculum kind of like a really mean Everything But The Girl platypus beakMuch of the humor seems directed at women such as her description of maxiads Some ads even come wrapped in sassy colors to match your sassy uterus and her instructions on diagnosing your face shape Stand in front of a mirror view your face and ask yourself this uestion What shape is that But even Jack found several of the entries funny reading aloud the entry for bangsThe found several of the entries funny reading aloud the entry for bangsThe aspect of the book that I didn t like was its rigid structure It adheres to the structure of a dictionary which makes it fun to flip through but not something you d want to say read all the way through in almost one sitting Ahem Despite that ualm I m going to start reading from Ms Lefler starting with her blogThe book raises a few uestions that it can t answer such as whether men really call their enises Mr Shock and Aw Yeah But overall The Chicktionary is the Modern Art Death of a Culture perfect gift this holiday season for the frenemy who has everything especially a good sense of humorFor a full review visit my book review blog Melody Words A hilarious and fun read this book iserfect for both the clueless man and the cosmopolitan lady From the definition of a The Lost Library: The Autobiography of a Culture pencil skirt who knew that it was also called an H line to the funky fauxga Anna Lefler
