Thank's to the ELLENWatchers here discussing her spelling of "suede." tesyaa, I am first of all impressed that you had any reason to be writing this word when you were a little kid--I don't think I even knew what it was until high school. Second, I agree that generally this just isn't something about Ellen that can be pinned down: some word's she misspells in exactly the same way every time, others she mixes up on whim, and still others she occasionally or formerly knew how to spell but have since descended into madness.
I think we have to assume that Grandma Trudy is Ellen's mom's mom. Is she still with us, pray?
