I want a Dyson for my birthday

I just read this in the comments section of Bossy's blog, and it made me laugh harder than I have in a long time.

That's actually kind of sad.


Carperpetuation (kar-pur-pet-you-ay-shun) n.

The act, when vacuuming, of running over a string or a piece of lint at least a dozen times, reaching over and picking it up, examining it, then putting it back down to give the vacuum one more chance.

And I thought I was the only one that did that.. :) It's so comforting to know I am not alone in this world....let me know if the Dyson works so I can add my old one to my collection in the hall closet..I figure if I hang on to them long enough that might be worth something one day

I have the dyson, I love the dyson. I will swear by the dyson and will always own one, even if I take up residence in a place with no floors.

I GOT a Dyson for my birthday and it is so awesome it actually sucked up the phony spider web Halloween decoration from around the outside my front door (naturally, vacuuming with the front door open here in dusty hot So Calif) and the webbing got caught around the roller brush. A horror, but I'm not complaining, given the "muscular" performance of my Mr. D!
