Went to sleep and my robot vacuumed...

...that's right! My parents bought me one of those Irobot vacuums for Christmas. It's so cool. It was on backorder and didn't get in to last night...then had to charge all morning...finally we got to turn "Sparky" on! My 5 month old found it very soothing...fell asleep...then I fell asleep with her on my chest on the couch. Woke up 40 minutes later...the living room was vacuumed...the kitchen/dining room was swept...and "Sparky" was working in the bedrooms. Geez I love technology.

Anybody else have one of these?

My aunt and uncle got a roomba from my cousin. Their dog doesn't know what to make of it, but they love it already xD

We've had a Roomba for several years. (Named mine Fabio....cuz....well...cuz there's NOTHING like Fabio doing your vacuuming! LOL!)
Love it!
The first time I used it, the dog tore off for under the bed, and Fabio followed him!! ROFLOLOL! Poor dog didn't know WHAT to think! He's adapted well, tho...
I do have to push a button on the remote, tho, to get him to work. **sigh**

I've been wanting one of those, but never knew anyone who had one to give me the scoop on them. So now I can ask my questions! Are they expensive? Are they only for hard floors and low pile carpeting? How many rooms can it do before you you have to empty it? Does is just randomly go around the room or does it have some kind of sensor on it that actually seeks out the dirt and stuff?

NOW *THAT'S* FUNNY!!
Don't know that I could give Fabio up that easily....
He does all my carpets here...and bare floors.
Expensive? It was a gift, so.....dunno. Pretty well works randomly. Unless he finds a soooper dirty spot, and then he lights up and goes round n round til he's happy. He does have sensors so he doesn't fall down the stairs. I empty the dust bin whenever I think of it. The only thing I can gripe about is...he can't handle socks. He'll dive under the bed and find a sock every time! But...you can hear him. He says...Uh Oh... (Gots lots of little beeps n clicks. After awhile you recognize them. I swear when he starts out, he screams, 'CHAAAAAARGE'!!
Heck....I don't care HOW he works...so long as he works!

a man-servant could do the same thing and also provide entertainment while wearing
His tiny french maid uniform. As you watched him bend over and then get on his hands and knees looking under the beds furniture looking for lost articles of clothing. :)

Maybe if Paris Hilton was the employer. LOL
I might apply but she is too vain and spoiled

LOL... I don't think spoiled has anything to do with just looking
