Words I say that make people go, "Huh?"


"I've always had a rather extensive vocabulary." -Uh Huh, Little Rascals
But seriously... I HAVE always had a rather extensive vocabulary. So much so, that when I attempted cursing at a young age, my mom put the kibosh on that ASAP. (Kibosh- noun: Put an end to; dispose of decisively) I then made up my own "curse words", which include: quinker, flobee, pookie shookie.
Definition? My brother, most of the time. Ha! (Sorry, Lance)

You have permission to use those words in your day-to-day conversations but keep in mind, I want credit for my creativity.

This list is not all inclusive but for today - - - 
Harajuku- Harajuku in the West has come to mean a certain fashion style associated with youth culture. It is also most popularly known as a clothing brand created by pop star Gwen Stefani. Though these are its most popular assocations, there is much more to Harajuku. It is also home to a major train station and near the sites of several shrines and other attractions.

kitschy- 1. something that appeals to popular or lowbrow taste and is often of poor quality 2. tacky or lowbrow quality or condition kitsch
 When I use kitsch- I rarely mean it negatively, although the definition sound like it's got a negative connotation.

I actually have my own framed version of this kitsch cutie.

flubbed up - made a mistake 

Get your fashion on- and use your words!

Love it! I always say words and people look at me like I have 20 heads (especially my boyfriend) so now that I know it happens to you, I don't feel so alone!

lol- I'm glad it happens to others! It happens often enough that sometimes I think I'm the oddball. But nah, we're the normal ones. ;o)

One of my best friends said I'm kind of like an "old lady" because I like so much old stuff. I'll have to teach her the word "kitschy" so it sounds better than being 'old'. Haha.
