Quandary Resolution 1746
la-la land, eclectic, farrago, burlesque
The family's opinions of my newly decorated office at Paramount Studios in Southern California la-la land seemed divided along generational lines: my older sister Sharon said approvingly that it was "appropriately eclectic", meaning I suppose that it would appeal to my heterogeneous clientele, while my Aunt Alice made a face and said it was a "farrago" (which turned out to be another word for "hodgepodge"), and my grandfather stood in the doorway scowling and said it was a burlesque, that I had gone off the deep end mocking our family's summer cottage in Rhode Island.
