all I want for Xmas?

December 6, 2010 § 5 Comments

Tempting… A robotic vacuum. A little round robot that vacuums your house on a pre-set schedule while you aren’t even home. There’s even a new model designed for homes with pet hair “concerns.” And it’s cute! It looks like a baby flying saucer that doesn’t fly. I need this. Plus… I’m a gadget freak. I wonder if it really works—I’d be happy if it just sort-of worked.

I have a dog—I vacuum constantly. Everyday. Well usually everyday. If I had a iRobot Roomba 560 Pet Series Robotic vacuum it could clean for me while I’m at work. What a deal.

It comes with a remote control—the husband will love it and much much cheaper than hiring a maid. He could even use it out in the garage. He’ll love that. If only it could clean snow… and leaves…

Not sure what my dog will think as he watches it whirl and twirl past him as he’s trying to sleep. Who cares what the dog thinks—he might enjoy it. Hopefully the Roomba would still be intact when I return home from work. And will the Roomba be able to keep up with the amount of dog hair that is continually released from this creature before the batteries drain out?

Hmmm, massive time saver or the ultimate demonstration of unbridled American laziness?

    Ahhh, that vacuum sounds so good!.. But all I want for Christmas is just a small video cam to record those kids that actually leave our floor in need of vacuuming!.. Well, with all the things I got for my fam, I don’t think my husband will splurge for MY Christmas wish… Sigh!..

    Very interesting; I can just see your dog either barking at this machine or just following it around the house thinking it’s his new toy. Sounds wonderful if it actually works as intended.

    you have the cutest dog i have ever seen!! is he a wolf-hybrid??

    • rotarydial says:

      He is one adorable canine–a mere 15 yrs young. He is a long-haired german shepherd mixed with ???? (don’t know). Just hope the roomba doesn’t explode with dog hair…it doesn’t appear to hold much waste matter and this pup can pump out a lot of excess fur.

      • Monique says:

        wait – are you actually getting a roomba?? i hope it doesn’t explode – that would be gross. and – i wouldn’t refer to dog hair as “waste matter” – that is generally a term used for feces or other bodily excrement. i hope it isn’t intended to suck up that kind of stuff!!
