To find the use of the word 'curating' utterly wnakery and pretentious?

I've noticed it being used more and more. Today on Facebook a Boden ad popped up - 'we're curating a collection of clothing for all the family' . What a load of bobbins.
Also, home interior magazines. 'Saskia curates a collection of bohemian trinkets and retro objects' Saskia has a load of old car boot tut in her drawing room.
Unless you are in charge of a museum using the word 'curating' should be banned, you pretentious arses.

glad I'm not alone!
Who do they think they are appealing to? There can't be that many people out there who could use that term without wanting to stab themselves in the eye immediately after? Are the very few people who could, prolific buyers of home interior magazines and Boden clothing?
I'm bamboozled by it.
Off to curate some boiling water, a tea bag and some milk in a mug

Sourced gets my goat.
I've managed to source some on point cushions with pineapples on , this season's trend.
No, you walked into any feckin high street shop that sells cushions and bought one and feckin pineapples seem to be printed on everything so it was hardly hard feckin work.

"Ella has curated a collection of handpicked, vintage items that give the lounge a personal feel"
Well yes, presumably she would have picked the items herself given that it's her house. And can you still use the word 'handpicked' if you bought stuff online?!

userthenlotsofnumbers they do, you're right!
Agree with sourced. I might source some pizza in Waitrose later. I'm then going curate a collection of pizza and salad in my fridge.
Later I'm going to handpick the items I sourced earlier, curate them on my plate and then eat them *
*translation: It's pizza and salad for tea tonight
