airhead n. A stupid or unaware person; moron, dim-wit. Origin: term implies that there is nothing but air in the subject's head. ("He's confused again. What an airhead!") Unrenounced to popular belief, Valley Girls did not invent this word. It was used to describe them.
awesome \Awe"some\, a. 1. Causing awe; appalling; awful; as, an awesome sight. In the 80's, if something was cool, it was awesome. See also bad.
bad adj. very good, excellent; Cool, Awesome. See also awesome.
bad to the bone The group George Thorogood & the Destroyers had a hit in the early 80's that had started this quote. The movie Fast Times At Ridgmont High was bad to the bone! See also bad.
barf bag A type of insult. Something Jo on The Facts of Life might of called Blair for spilling something on her homework.
barf me out You might of heard this come from a Valley Girl after you've said something offensive to her. Also used to describe something you do not particularly like.
bimbette The use of bimbo would of been too outdated for use in the 80's. Bimbette would be used instead of calling a girl a "slut". Also used to describe a girl who is stupid.
