Katdishionary, Part 10

That’s right, people! This is the 10th installment of the never-ending series of blog fodder known as the katdishionary. As I mentioned in my last installment, all previous katdishionary words are compiled for your convenience on the tab marked “katdishionary”. Um, except this one.

But I’ll get around to it eventually…

And now, on with the katdishionary:

IEEKEE (pronounced EYE-EEE-KEY)

Definition: A international home products Dutch corporation that designs and sells ready to assemble furniture, appliances and home accessories.

Origin: The pronunciation is from my Japanese mother, who despite living in the US for over 50 years, still calls IKEA I-ee-Kee. I’ll probably share some more interesting pronunciations with you in future posts, because chances are pretty good she’ll never read this. She never uses computers, unless you count slot machines and ATMs.

Katfight (pronounced kat-fite)

Definition: “The consequences of one’s being a stupid @$$ and being found out by a Kathy. Theses consequences include more verbal violence than physical, but if it comes to it, the Kathy will hurt the perpetrator.”

Origin: A comment from my friend Jake Lee from Very Much Later who offered this new entry into the katdishionary after reading my post Pardon me while I rant incessantly: Selling ARCs for fun and profit. Thanks, Jake.

Prostitot (pronounced pro-sti-tot).
Definition: A popular form of dressing young girls incredibly inappropriately, made more convenient by major retailers who seem to sell clothing intended for tiny pop stars and groupies

Origin: Comments section of my post Super Skanktacular Saturday Giveaway! where I gave away a priceless set of Bratz dolls bearing a striking resemblance to the Kardashian sisters:


The competition was fierce, as there were many good entries into the contest, but commenter Erin was chosen by the judges for introducing us to a new word, prostitot:

“Great giveaway! Here is why I want my two year old to have them. I’m a bit overweight so I’m not properly able to display for my prostitot the styles and fashions that will attract all the boys and girls in her youth group. These shameless hussy dolls give me the chance to properly model for my sweet innocent little girl the way modern tweens dress and act!”

(Thanks, Erin. Don’t you just love educational toys?)

This concludes this addition to the katdishionary. Keep those cards and letters coming!
