Izuno Rant… ‘Staycation’

October 8th, 2008 by Jordan

You’ve heard it. It’s like a bad verse from a Hanson song (or any verse from a Hanson song for that matter). The phrase ‘staycation’ has been used too many times this year and is making its way through the unimaginative news media networks. Supposedly a ‘staycation’ is where you stay at home and vacation. Which to me is simply unvalidated. A ‘staycation’ is not a vacation in any sense of the word. It’s crap and should be shot and gone from our vocab. Here’s my proof…and if pop news networks use it, it’s one more reason why I hate it.

MSNBC bit with this article

Even CNN the best of the worst major networks bit

And of course the worst of the worst bites, and even tried to coin ‘sex staycation’

Okay…let’s set the record…a ‘staycation’ is to the media is what I call a ‘weekend’ or ‘free time.’ Don’t get hyped up, just shoot this terminology and bury it.

I will be posting my solution for all of us who are out of money and can’t travel in the near future, since I’m criticizing this phrase so much.
