Lobby

I used to work on reception in a hotel and had to announce over the tanoy (sp?)

"Could the Blue Vespa party that arrived from Japan this morning please convene in the lobby...thats the Blue Vespa party to the lobby - thankyou"

......I used to collapse in fits of giggles each time.

'Desquemation'.

A lovely-sounding word for shedding skin cells. :laugh:

Oh, and I'm pretty fond of the word 'yes'..Wink

"yes" sounds good when it is screamed and sometimes preceded by "Oh" to help it along....and perhaps rounded off with a "!" for good measure.....

I like the word "pastel".....and "turqoise"......and "lavender" (...a bit of a coloration theme going on here)........"thrust" is another nice little impact word....

Ooh yes, I like turquoise... do you pronounce it 'quoyze' or 'quaaaz'?

Thrust is also good. As is 'grunt'.

Lobby's a good old American word, yep. Tan(n)oy is a trademark so unfortunately you'd have to replace it with "public announcement/address system" which is an entire 3 words in total (....I counted....)

(I think her next suggestion will be "pedantic".....)Smile

No, tan(n)oy is fine - also place names are good to go....such as the amazing "Saskatchewan" (say it - you'll like it!)
