I love my dyson

I inherited a vacuum with the house I rent. Amy, the american who lived here before me, bought some appliances and had to leave them behind when she moved since they won't plug in back home, so she gave them to me as a welcome present. I've always known I loved the tumble dry, but hadn't really thought about the vacuum. But yesterday in my cleaning frenzy I gave it a workout. And boy, do I love that dyson.

I've used it before...I've lived here for almost two years now, so I've vacuumed a few times. (Stop that snickering. So I'm not a cleaner. Sue me.) But I'd never been able to figure out how to empty the chamber, so the efficacy of the vacuum was lost on me. It worked, but no better than any other vacuum.

WELL. Yesterday I decided I was not going to use it until that chamber was emptied. Took me about 20 minutes to figure it out, but I did. And what a difference that made! This vacuum could suck the hair off a dog. And the visible whirlwind chamber lets you watch as it picks up the dust and sand and crumbs, creating a little tornado right before your eyes. It's fascinating to watch. I vacuumed the floor, I vacuumed the furniture, I vacuumed the baseboards, the steps, and I even tried out the brush attachment along the curtains. Totally cool.

I think I've found a new hobby.

I'm jealous. Really.

A friend of mine, and my brother, have gone on, at length, about how much they love their Dysons.

Are they as expensive there as they are here?

As soon as you start running Europe you're hiring a maid.

I'm telling you, ten, it is ABSOLUTELY worth the $$.

Yes, bubs, they're as expensive here as they are there, but it is impossible for words to describe how perfect they are. Money well spent.

Yes, CP, when I rule Europe I will hire help. But I'll still use the dyson just for fun.

If you are gonna say "tumble dry" you might as well start "Hoovering"!

Of course I hoover now. With my dyson.
