Do you call your flies a 'zipper'? You disgust me
couch only has one arm.
when in polite company.
Sitting room wins
Both are rubbish.
Livingroom being just about acceptable.
or maybe Living Room.
But never front room or sitting room...
(Notice I'm not even giving them capital letters.)
Mine is at the back
the front room. how could it not be? its the front room!
Mine is technically at the front as the windows face out onto the road, but my front door doesn't, so if the front door faces the front (which it must do...), then in reality, it isn't a front room for me. And I don't really sit in it, sitting implies what you do at the table in the dining room. I sort of lounge. Therefore it's a lounge.
a lounge is what you get at a gentlemans club or in the vip area of a club or airport or something, not in your house, in your house its a living room
my problem with the living room people in order to take on the lounge people
sort of alliance to fight the greater evil.
wank calls it the 'front room'?
silly people, that's who
a Front Room,
if there was ever a more appropriate use for the word 'overkill' i'll drink some more of this really nice fruit cider that i have
if there was ever a better system i'll drink some more of this gorgeous old reserve red wine that was on massive sale in sainsbury's
"most middle class post of the day" award.
"middle class" posts on this thread alone than john's.
fall under the category of middle class
here, have a scone
red wine and sainsburys that did it. Sorry...
I don't know what the difference is. She also has a 'TV room' and four rooms with dining tables (the kitchen, sitting room, dining room and conservatory). How can four people need this amount of space???
have a 'sitting room' and a 'front room', cuz the front room is at the front of the house, but nobody ever goes in there so it can't be the sitting room..
Who the hell ever says the other two?
feels wrong to me, i have to say settee
I say couch or sofa usually. Settee when it's new for some reason.
As it's at the front.
but what if it isn't?
The one in my house is at the front.
Well that's just fucking great, Dalkin
i was brought up on 'lounge' though.
lounge is inescapably lower-bourgeois
Nah it's proliterian.
but we have a front room too, but only cos its a big room at the front of the house.
it has a nice view of the sea though
my sister's husband however, his family have a castle. bastards.
lunch and tea
Is entirely correct.
The act of eating in restaurants is always called dinner, whatever the time of day. Which is strange.
I can only afford to eat out once a day.
Now, if I married a celebrity, maybe I could find out whether it's called 'lunch' when you eat in a restaurant at 1pm, even though I call it 'dinner' when I eat at home at 1pm.
the colouring in room.
has a Crayoning Room, they're too uneducated for a Drawing Room.
of the house.
Living Room > Front Room > Sitting Room > Lounge
Also, Lunch and Tea. Dinner is the worst word in existence.
but it's at the back in our house!?
is where you feed a whippet coal
A Lounge is where you pine for old Mumbai over G&T while a small turkish boy clips your cigars
