Sometimes

Dear Tom Selleck . . .

Do you sometimes put whipped cream and colored sugar on top of your coffee at home for fun?

Sometimes . . . I have to stop myself from typing the word 'dude' at the beginning of everything I write.  I helped make that word hip in the 80's but was secretly happy when it went on the endangered species list of words.  Seems as though it's back with a vengeance.  I hate it.  But I.  can't.  stop.  saying.  it!

Dude.

true story dude.

  1. I saw that you put whipped cream and green sprinkles on coffee for St. Patrick's Day and I thought it was GENIUS. I have yet to try it because I am lazy.

  2. Dude, I feel the exact same way about awesome. I keep trying to use gnarly instead so I can sound all retro, but I fail miserably, dude.

    It's awesomely tragic and shit, dude.

  3. I use Dude on a daily basis. In fact, the majority of my texts to my BFF/HLP just say Dude. It seems to get the point across.

    Ms. Salti - Dude.

  12. I really started to hate the word 'Dude' when I found out that some woman got her blogging nickname from constantly mispelling dude in SMS and now she's all famous and makes buckets of money just because she is known as that blogger that got fired for her blog. (No,I'm not jealous. Not at all.) Also, Ashton Kutcher ruined dude for me too. Overkill. - G

  14. Georgina - I have to know what blog you're referring to so I can hate too.

    Vittoria - You just made me feel really old. Thanks for that bitch. I mean dudette. :)

  15. I may have been a product of the 80's, but I say "dude" far often then I should. It shouldn't have gone out of style; it never should. What would Fast Times be without it?
