Classic, Schmassic

Plus: Hard Evidence That I Actually Do Laundry

Here's a promotional video for the The CHICKtionary that the fabulous Marla Miller inspired me to make for her wonderful website.

It's called "The Top 10 Reasons Why The CHICKtionary Beats A Tale of Two Cities."

I'd like to point out that Charles Dickens didn't even
bother making a video for his book. I'm just sayin'.

(If you can't see the video below, please click here.)

Thanks to my daughter Morticia (Director of Photography) and my son Gomez (Stunt Coordinator). Even though they have since unionized and are now suing me for unpaid overtime and boring unsafe work conditions, I will probably let them go to that swim party this weekend.

I have it on good authority that Dickens wore a thong.

Heather said...

Dude. You can smize your ass off. I'm impressed!

(I've moved beyond the jeggings dilemma, by the way. I'm full on into Pajama Jeans Crisis over here.)

Can't wait to foist your book upon every chick I know!

So that is what that's called? Smizing? Did you have to stand in front of the mirror to perfect it that well? I am totally impressed!

Now, about that thong Dickens wore,Ann is right. I read about it in the Dictionary. But it didn't say a thing funny about his impotence.

just saying. . .

Can't wait to have my own copy of this!

Great video!

Those Victorian writers could never figure out the record button. I don't get it. They can put on all those nightgowns and caps, but can't hit a button?

I love when you drop teh laundry basked. Every time.

You had me at the perky pink cover! Can't wait to order. I'm going to get one for everybody in my book club. Most are in definite need of learning key vocabulary words. I do hope "vajazzle" is in there.

I just went on Amazon and pre-ordered 5 copies. I'm just bummed that I have to wait until the end of November to get them. Oh well, they will make great Christmas presents. Going to share the link on my When Pigs Fly Blog Facebook page!

Hi Anna. I'm here by way of the almost godlike Herman Turnip.

This Chicktionary looks indispensable. How do I get one? Up until now, I've been struggling by on a series of ululations, screeches and hand gestures...I think the chicktionary might be just what I need in order to become articulate and possessed of that certain je ne sais quoi. Hey, I spoke French! Liberte, egalit...something something. Never mind.
