A Fauxcation (or Faux-cation) is when you are taking vacation days off from work, but definately not doing vaction-like activities (e.g., moving, painting, yard work, etc.). It's like a 'staycation' with a honey do list!

A fake vacation from work. Time spent doing work away from the office...under the facade of a vacation.
She claimed she was taking a one week hiatus to St. Maarten with the girls, but Ngozi turned the trip into a total fauxcation. She called clients on her Blackberry during massages and checked her e-mail while "lounging" on the beach.
