I own a robot

Oh, the frivolies of a life as a DINK. Both Mrs. Expat Teacher and I hate vacuuming. We both think it sucks!

So I used some of my supplemental money from coaching softball to buy a Roomba. The Roomba is a robotic vacuum cleaner made and sold by iRobot. It is marketed as a "Robotic Floorvac". The Roomba was first released in 2002 with updates and new models released in 2003, 2004, 2005 and 2006. As of May 2006, over 2 million units have been sold. I went for the scheduler so that it will vacuum while we are at work, probably every other day.

We didn't need it, but the Roomba is a nice splurge. If you are interested, here are a bunch of YouTube videos of Roombas freakin' the beegeebies out of dogs. Enjoy.
