Because "What's Up My Chica?" Should Not Be Forgotten....

I just spent the last hour and a half riffling through old journals. Ah, the nostalgia! I was all set to write about how nice it would be to head back to the old high school days for a bit, but uh, I think this is MUCH better. I was reading all about the drama when something caught my eye. Or rather, a word caught my eye. Several times. On several pages. I actually used the word "spiffage" in my every day life. Talk about taking you back! If I remember right it was an adaption my friends and I made of the newly-cool word "spiffy". As in, "I got a VCR for Christmas! SPIFFAGE!!!!" or, "Ohmigosh, I got 2 gerbils this weekend, and they are SO spiffage..."

And people? I found a fabulous website with all of our favorite 90's phrases and slang. Some are a little colorful, and others I never heard or used (maybe cause I was living in a predominantly white community in Utah?! Maybe?) but they're all classic. Very very classic.

Some of my personal favorites include yoink, dude (which, to be honest? Is still used with wild abandon....), chica (are your insides cringing?!? Mine are!), the ever-popular "all that and a bag of chips" and "off the heasy".

No spiffage though.........That's like, so totally shady!
