Back in December I posted that I was going to be "cha chee"---explore my inner diva and express a whole new persona. I wanted to move away from the boring, frumpy person that I have spent my whole life being and ramp it up a bit. Cha chee was something I heard a woman on television say. Well, tonight I learned the correct spelling a real definition of the word. It is t-c-h-o-t-c-h-k-e. Now, I have seen this word before, but always to mean little knick knacky type collecitbles, like glass figurines. So, while I am embarrassed that I was so off on the spelling, I had the right spirit of the word---a second definition of tchotchke is an attractive, unconventional woman.
So, in 2012 I think I will figure out which of my frumpy, old lady ways I will abandon to find the tchotchke that I have been smothering within me.
