Totally

I was writing an e-mail to a friend and wrote the word "mansion" and I could not get over how 80's that word sounded. So I said so.

Then, I started thinking too much about it, and I've got a whole list full of 80's sounding words. These words go beyond the obvious, "rad" and "neon" and "Reaganomics". These are words we still use today, and sound 80's for no reason, other than the fact that I think they do.

So I'd like to share them with you. Enjoy:

limo

tuxedo

prom

tuna fish

goldifsh

unicorn

indoor plant

Hm... I thought I had more, but that's all I can think of right now. Your turn!

mansion and 80's reminds me of the game M.A.S.H.

You're quick Dave. I posted less than ten minutes ago.

But I think you're on to something with the game MASH. Still, I wonder why Apartment, Shack, and House don't make me think 80's??

The world is a mystery.

Also, I realize how pathetic it is that I checked to see if there were any comments within ten minutes. Whatever. I'm owning it.

mansion, limo, and tuxedo remind me of the 80's. Brandt and I were talking about this TRUMP game my grandparents bought us back in '88. On the cover was a yacht (80's word right there) and a limo and a woman getting out of the limo in a puffy dress. It was all very 80's. Like your Tia Linda's pinball game. But the added bonus was this was the 1980's Donald Trump, where you were CONVINCED he embodied "rich". Or at least it seemed that way in the 80's.
