why not? maybe a tad bit is a tad of a bit (ie much less than a bit) :)

I'd be ok with "a little bit" or "a small tad" (though that one doesn't quite sound right), but "tad" and "bit" are both nouns, and one does not modify a noun with another noun. Except, of course, for you, Suze. You may modify a noun however you please :)Anyway, have I thoroughly and completely picked that nit?

yep...thoroughly picked :)Personally I wouldn't say tadbit cause it sounds silly and reminds me of tadpoles which I don't like.
