Oh I forgot to mention. I learned over the weekend from Genuine West Coast People that "hella" is not something that anyone over there says anymore.
Just when it was starting to be so common here in the midwest.
We're so unhip here in the flyover.
Of course, this means I can stop feeling self conscious and just use the word ALL THE TIME.
I told my sister that maybe I will take the role of hip lingo preservationist. I will always use words exactly when they are not hip, to keep them alive, then when people need something retro stuff will be floating there in the culture among the lame preservationists. :)
