this was not convenient timing


my vacuum has apparently died and with 4 people (including messy ass dave) and one ginormous dog, not having a vacuum cleaner is not good. we have roomba, who gives a valiant effort, but is more of a daily maintenance type of vacuum....he just doesn't get everything that he should. now i am faced with a very difficult decision, especially considering how much money i have been spending lately. i could go for another one of those $75 relatively cheap, but not that effective vacuums that will surely die in less than 5 years or go get one of those dyson monster vacs. i'm sure you all have seen the commercials. these fuckers cost up to $500, but might be worth it if they actually work as advertised. i dunno. what should i do? i am kind of getting sick of having a messy house and want to take better care of it. my new blogging style has not really captured the attention of people like i hoped and i am not sure if anyone is still reading this, i may be on my own on this one.

Who were you hoping your new blogging style would capture the attention of?


Marketing people who give away expensive vacuum cleaners to popular bloggers?

Personally, I would not buy the Dyson. I seem to recall Goodhousekeeping giving it some pretty poor ratings.

We have an extra vacuum that we could give you for free.

I have an eureka which was a bargain and works great. If you wanted to splurge, I would go with a canister vacuum instead of a dyson. I'd recommend one of the following instead...
