I bought a Suit and a Robotic Vacuum yesterday...
I've been getting philosophical about my the beginning of my fourth decade and I realized two things:
A. I've never owned a suit. I look OK in one (see tux pic at left :) ) but I always feel like I'm playing grownup. (Don't most geek-types feel that way in a suit?) So, clearly I needed a suit. I went into Bachrach and walked out decked out. I'd show you a picture but the 'net can only handle one photo of me dressed up.
2. Then, I bought a Roomba. Yes, I needed a suit, but really, I seriously needed a Robotic Vacuum. They both go nicely with my watch.
I'm seriously digging the vacuum. It's stupid, mind you, but it's effective. I thought it would be smarter and map out the room and figure out the most effective way to clean. But no, it just drives around randomly and based on the size of the room and the time that it runs they can mathematically prove that they'll cover x area in y time. Kind of a cop-out but it works, eh? I've happily left it to vacuum the entire top floor (900 sq. ft.) of our 1800 sq. ft. house and it manages the task in about 90 minutes before the batteries poop out.
Shame it doesn't have mscorlib on it...anyone else have a suit AND a robot hoover?
