Guest happy?

Does anyone have a high-velocity rifle. I now feel this is the only practical way to stop this ugly word from further publication. The latest example of this nonsense appeared in today's Torygraph under the byline of Maria Fitzpatrick:

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/property/buying...de-retreat.html

We need a few examples to discourage further propagation.

It's up there with 'Web 2.0' for vacuity and triteness, you know the content of the article before you read any further. Hopefully very shortly it will go the way of Web 2.0.

Maria - go hang your head in shame.

My pet peeve at the moment is the addition of "area" to too many words used to describe bits of houses.

Kitchen area = kitchen

Garden area = garden

Etc .....

Go with the flow, you can't stop evolution.

But you can push some of it back into the swamp.

I thought this was used where you arent actually getting a fully fledged bedroom, kitchen, garden etc, just an, ahem, multi use zone which could be adapterized for kitchenification duties.

I wonder if she will use her interior design flair to convert it into a boat in time for when the sea level has risen.

Yes indeed, whereas a kitchen is a room dedicated to the preparation and possibly also consumption of food, a ‘kitchen area’ in a ‘luxury apartment’ is that little corner of the living room where the cooker, fridge and stuff go.
