A Humorous Collection of Ladies’ Lingo

Anna Lefler is the author of the forthcoming humor book The CHICKtionary:  From A-Line to Z-Snap, the Words Every Woman Should Know, published by Adams Media.  The book is scheduled for release this November and is available online for presale at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

The CHICKtionary is a humorous dictionary of the words and phrases women use—and what they really mean when they use them.  Described as “a scrunchie for your brain,” the book corrals more than 450 terms, including some you know (uterus) and some you might not (wasband), and defines each from the perspective of a typical contemporary woman—a woman who avoids accidental pageant hair, is frenemies with her robotic vacuum and only occasionally relies on her high-waisted jeans to hold up her strapless bra.

Anna is an award-winning writer and humorist whose essays on modern motherhood have been nationally syndicated and who has performed standup comedy in Los Angeles clubs including the Hollywood Improv and the Comedy Store.  She is the author of the comic novel Act Busy and writes the popular humor blog Life Just Keeps Getting Weirder (www.LifeJustKeepsGettingWeirder.blogspot.com), where she ponders what a Jedi smells like and wonders why more men don’t wear urban sport kilts.
