I may have overstated my temerity's degree of mitigation.

Flu is my Room 101 today. Or more specifically the phenomenon of losing one's voice.

It needs to go into Room 101 for the simple reason that it attracts far too high a cliche level in every conversation one has during the absence of voice / quirky seal call phase.

I don't know what Room 101 means. So maybe that is my Room 101. Or maybe not.

Originally it comes from the novel 1984 and contained the thing (torture) that most frightened you.

In recent years it has been the basis for a tv show in which people make an argument for things they hate being put into Room 101 and thereby deleted from existence for ever.

So - it can be the location of your greatest fears - or the place for disposing of things that irk you.

Thank you for the clarification. I did read 1984, but it was prior to the actual 1984 and hence quite some time ago, so I'm fuzzy on a lot of the details.

In that case, I will put printers and photocopiers in Room 101.

The verb forms of 'tape' and 'film', and the word 'footage', when referring to either.

Into Room 101 ya go.

Did I do it right? Huh? Did I?

Also, thanks for the clearification.

I don't know if high winds can go into Room 101. If they can, please shut the door behind them.

My back, shoulder, hip and leg pains could go into that room too, please.

Johnathon Ross's first suggestion for Room 101 is in my Room 101

I didn't know the show had been revived.

In my room 101 today is the marketing manager at my store who more closely resembles the David Brent in the British "The Office" than any person I have ever met, and anyone who thinks she is a hard worker.
