Is blonde spelt with the 'e'?
Sorry, it's a silly question and you may even call me blonde... But I see it different everywhere, some people spell it blond
I think that the most important thing is to be consistent in how you speel it. Both my Websters and my Oxford list bithways as correct, and without any differences between US, and English spellings.
Mick, consistent? Do you always speel speel "speel" and speel bithways "bithways"? Keyboard trouble?
No, but I don't always have the time to check for errors, and when I do I don't always get them. If I'm writing for real publication I am very meticulous, bu for here? Well it's only a petty forum.
Hi Mick - no offense meant, and none taken, I hope. I was just having fun with the extra "e" in speel.
There you go again, Sid, with that 'CRAZY' sense of humoer, hahaa. Oops, I mean humor!
Or humour, if you're British. I must have an unusually large humerus. That's my funny bone. And it has an "e" like a girl's blonde!
Oh, I've got one of those too. They must not be gender specific.
It never occured to me that you were being offensive, Sid. I noticed the errors when it was too late to edit them, I thought to myself, what a dumbo I am.
No, Sid...that would be a Dumba 'o' for boys, (Mick is correct here), and 'a' for girls, hahaha
Of Course! Ho, Ho, Ho! I can't say "ha," I'm a guy!
If you're a girl, you're a blonde.
If you're a guy, your a blond.
Please don't take this personally, but it's gender-specific. The "e" at the end indicates the hair color is that of a woman, without the "e," it's the hair of a man. This happens with a few words imported from French. I can think of one other example: A woman engaged to be married is a fiancee, a man engaged to be married is a fiance.
Women get the extra "e." In Hollywood terms, Marilyn Monroe was a blonde, and Peter Graves was a blond.
Or, if I'm wrong, maybe I'm having a blond moment!
Jake-this is a wonderful question. I never gave it much thought, but Sid gave an excellent response re: the difference. Wow! I'll have to be aware of that when I use it. Isn't he smart? And, so are you for posting this question here to the almighty gurus of words. Now for my Smart A** Answer:
No, it's spelled with a 'Y' as in D-i-z-z-y (my apologies to all the 'Blondies' out there, myself included, haha

I do Two blondes are walking down the street. One notices a compact on thesidewalk and leans down to pick it up. She opens it, looks in the mirrorand says, 'Hmm, this person looks familiar.'The second blonde says, 'Here, let me see!'So, the first blonde hands her the compact.The second blonde looks...

LOL!Sometimes I just have a spate of questions to ask! This is one of those times! With photos, while I am editing articles en masse: though HP gives us an option, do they actually have any preference for border or no border on photos?I generally select 'with border,' but notice that option...
