Wednesday's Workplace Wordage: "Not Famil"

This week's word is brought to us compliments of Cocoa Girl's favorite Sri Lankan flavor in the office.

Cocoa Girl: "What do you think of that green leather hobo from Marc Jacobs?"

S.L.F.: "Dunno, hon...not famil
."


Alternatively seen/heard as "unfamiliar" OR "not familiar with," NOT FAMIL is a must-have for those office slaves toiling away on the fast-paced C.S.S. What makes this Wednesday's wordage even MORE popular is the fact that it spares us use of one whole syllable! Yup, probably a whopping one-hundreth of a second.

While it's extra richickulous, Cocoa personally digs this one. When spoken in the correct accent, it could make any executive-in-training sound hella aloof, b.k.a. NYC-cool.

T. Cas said...

I tried last weeks word, I don't think I can pull "not famil" off in the office and maintain my manliness. LOL

Cocoa Girl said...

Uh huh, Cas...check out Zeddie's usage above.

(You): "Officewide pay freeze? Nope, not famil."

You might just run the risk of sounding, um, a tad hostile...

I don't know about the Green Marc Jacobs Hobo bag, but that grey Chole bag is sickening, although I'm not famil with dropping two G's on a purse!

BossMack said...

Droppin 2 stacks on a hot bag? Thats that Diva Shit for real.

Cocoa Girl said...

I'm not famil, either. But if I had an extra two g's to do it, it would be an entirely different story. Some of my friends do that one every season...Nathans!

Actually, there is many a man on my job who are quite famil with dropping g's for play. It's almost elementary around these neck of the woods...

Cash = A$$.

What up, Boss?

Supa said...

lmfao @ Nikki's crazy azz!!!

Getting to work on time? I'm not famil....

:)

Miss Ahmad said...

girl Chole has me rethinking the way I spend....Those bag are so damn hot that I think I must have one...and that's not really my style to be an absolute slave to fashion anymore...wardrobes do not make down payments on homes....

Cocoa Girl said...

Supa - True...true...

Glam...send me a pic of that bag...which one is it?!?!?!

Errbody got some Chloe joint. My one girl has the Silverado and Paddington. I think they're like crack!

Supa said...

Glam & Cocoa: I'ma really need ya'll to stop talking fly ass purses before I go off and do something drastic......

:)

But 2g's on a bag?? Yikes!! I aint THAT supa....

Cocoa Girl said...

Supa and Glam...do ya'll have a pair of Espadrilles? I'm going to Puerto Rico in two weeks and am in need!

Supa said...

SO...what? You wanna wear MY Espadrilles?!?!? lol

Ooh! Puerto Rico?! Muy bueno!!

Girl! Betta go on & up your Espadrille/Wedgie/Swimsuit game!

nikki said...

hehehe...sorry for not cooperating. let me get back to the task at hand:

a bill that gets paid on time by me? not famil.

Miss Ahmad said...

well I might need them espadrilles to meet you in Puerto Rico...i likes rum and spanish speaking men are my weakness, especially ones with brown skin...

I wanna come!

i like liquor and tv said...

since I know everything, I can't ever use that phrase

Cocoa Girl said...

Nikki - You so crazy, again!

Glam, my girl is getting married, BUT she lives in Oaktown! Maybe I could have ya'll meet up in efforts to work yourself an invite. LOL.

But, for real...ya'll should meet up. She's me, but a little more (okay, way more) Cali.

Hey LQ *waving*

Diva said...

These folks at my current location use that word all the time like it's real. I just shake my head.

i like liquor and tv said...

Mwabi
it wouldn't lert me post as me!

chris said...

new one to me, but i like it.

Cocoa Girl said...

Mwabi - Giirrrrl, you ain't said nuttin but a word. My friends want to assasinate me everytime I saw it, but Cocoa has NO problem rocking a look-alike. I say so, because, unlike many folks, I don't buy bags and stuff to raise my level of esteem or status.

Not judging or meaning to sound self-righteous, rather I just don't feel that rocking a copycat from Steve Madden makes me anything less. Just like I don't think that rocking the authentic joint makes me any greater.

I'm a bad-azz bitch on my ownsome.
