Anyone want to Roomba?

I have been having fun with this little guy.  It's really more of a toy than anything useful.  He can be pretty bossy too.  Sometimes he just gets a mind of his own and goes all over hell's half acre.  You can set up little guards in places you don't want him to go to but I usually forget and find him trapped in my underwear in the laundry room!  He seems to be attracted to discarded underwear ... little perv!  It's so cute when his battery is starting to die, he turns around and makes his way back to the charging station ... turns his ass around and backs up into the charger .. it's hilarious.  Seriously people I must get a life.

Concerned friend:  Joan what did you do today?
Joan:  I played games on my computer for two hours, read my blogs, had lunch and then watched my vacuum cleaner try to clean my underwear.
Concerned friend:  Cool ... vacuum porn!

This is what's holding me back! I wish I could get out there but it's impossible.

Looks like a big ole pillow doesn't it?

Later all!!

Did a little makeover in here today.

Happy New Year...out with the old and in with the new!  I plan to expand "The New House" link because so much has changed here after that was posted. But, just as I was doing that the power went off and killed it.  It is -40 effing degrees below here ....people... I almost shit my pants.  It happened at 6:00 PM ..and I was running around trying to find candles, batteries, flashlights and my portable radio ... and it came on again.  This went off and on 5 times...just as I was about to panic.... 5 times was the lucky charm..... I finally was able to put my casserole in the oven and not worry about heat. 

I understand how difficult it was for those people in Ontario with the ice storm now...mind you they don't have our temps...but when it's dark, cold, and you don't know where the heat will be coming from it is very scary.  We have a gas fireplace....and it was on...but once the power went off..soo did it....well what the fuck good is that?  I thought it would stay on?  I guess if Gord would have been home he could have relit it....?  I have no idea.  We are spoiled rotten ... aren't we? Our ancestors would be laughing in our faces. 

So ... with that out of the in the heck is everyone?  I see most of you on facebook so I pretty well know what's shaking.  I spent a lot of the day reading my old blogs....or essays....good gravy I was long winded... and said nothing about a   Play time every night when I came home from work in those days.

I had to get used to some of the new stuff around blogger......but I'm not near as anal as I used to be about the appearance of my blog.   Words are the best... I no longer care about the rest.  Okay just a was always a challenge and I liked that.  Taking a step back. 

See youse guys again soon :)
