i'm just a girl, in love with a machine that sucks

i.am.obsessed.

with dyson's. the vacuum's. you know what they are, don't you? DON'T YOU?!! they are only THE greatest vacuum's in the world!!! they are funky looking, and weird.. and goofy- but i want one! like real bad!!!!! they're also the most expensive vac i've ever come across in my waking life, but still. honestly, why does it cost so much? will i get breakfast every morning from my dyson? will it raise blake? will it walk the puppy i don't have, when i have one? i don't care. i still want one!!!

i can't even begin to tell you the bad things i'd do for a dyson. cause there's a list. oh yes, there's a list of things i'd do for one. and suddenly, i feel like an old woman. i mean, who the hell gets excited for a fucking vacuum? that's like getting excited for a new ironing board. that's it. i've officially lost it...... again. and yet, i look at the pic below and i want to cry! i stare at them longingly in target. 2 of my favorite things... together... in one place. target and dyson. *swoon* i mean, look how cute the new silver one is! isn't it pretty? don't you want to take it home and pet it and love it and have 10 thousand little dyson babies with it?! so maybe that's just me. but come on... haven't you wanted an appliance real badly before? please tell me i'm not alone in this!!!!

I LOVE my Dyson. You wouldn't believe how long it took me to kill my old vaccuum so I'd have an excuse to buy a new one. Oooh, and I got it at Target, of course.

Becky said...

you are not alone i'm sure. i'm not into the dysons though. they're cool and yes i'd take one if given to me but i'm not obsessed. wanna know what i want??? a new washer and dryer. BUT FRONT LOADING ONES! of course the most pricey and the ones i'll never get. now i'd do many things for that. for sure. but thats about the only appliance i'd do bad things for.

I once wrote about my love for my Dyson. In fact, she is sitting upstairs now. We had a few special moments together earlier today.

alison said...

I want one too. It seems like everyone I know has one (except you and me) and I wonder where they find $400 to drop on a vacuum cleaner? I saw a deal at Target once where you buy the Dyson and get a $50 giftcard too...I was tempted but my husband would SHIT if I showed up with that vacuum. He knows how much they cost and I'm sure he would make me return it. And then we'd have to get divorced over a vacuum cleaner. I have an idea...put it on your wedding registry and someone will get it for you (even if a few people have to go in on it together). That would be the most exciting wedding gift for you EVER!

If this helps you feel better, abouta year ago i was obsessed with a certain mop bucket with wheels.. i even had a blog post where i wrote a poem in honor of my mop bucket.. i know.. i am SICK.. at least yours plugs in!

Miss Britt said...

The only reason I don't want a dyson is because I have an Electrolux - which is THE SHIT, lemme tell you.

I am however still nursing an obsession for a bright red Kitchenaid mixer. It wouldn't match anything in my kitchen - and I don't care. I want one!!

Melody said...

you wanna hear stupid? i had the chance to get one for $300. the purple one. and I didn't do it. dont ask why. every time I'm at BB&B or Target.. I weep a little as I walk by.

Melissa said...

I'd actually never seen one, but I do get it. Mine was the Roomba. And one day, hubby got sick of me walking by it on purpose and telling him about it and bought it for me. I was and still am in love.

chris said...

I want one too. sigh. My vacuum sucks, and not it a good way.

Stephanie A. said...

When I found out that the glorious D wouldn't scratch my hardwood floors I totally fell in love with them, too. I want a Dyson and I WILL HAVE ONE. One day.

And Becky, I'm also obsessed with the front loading W/D.

For someone who loathes cleaning, I sure am attached to its paraphernalia.

Denise said...

Well, I must one OLD lady because I love vacuums and steam cleaners...they are only Bissell though. I can't afford Dyson right now. I also get happy when I buy new plastic storage containers every year. Don't laugh. ;)

Mommy off the Record said...

Not to make you jealous, but I've been with a Dyson before. Oh yeah. I've got the all floors Dyson. In yellow.

I won't lie. It's awesome.

1girl2boys said...

You are so not alone! I have wanted one for such a long time now. I should just bite the bullet and do it. Vacuuming is the only chore I actually enjoy, I need a Dyson. I want the pretty purple one.

Christina_the_wench said...

Is a vibrator considered an appliance if it plugs in?

Plunky said...

I totally want a Dyson. Of course, I'd also like a wedding so I guess, for now, the Dysons out. Which totally blows because it's so damn sexy.

Magnolia Mom said...

Never heard of Dyson...I have a Kirby and love it.

Wendy said...

Like Becky, I'm obsessed with getting a new washer and dryer. I thought I was in luck when my dryer tried to die the other day, but in desperation of needing clean clothes, I kicked the drum over and over and it stopped squeaking. How stupid of me. Now that Samsung Silvercare is going to have to wait until I figure out how to kill the dryer. I wonder if rocks would work...

Meg said...

I wanted a Dust Buster so bad that I couldn't stand it! I finally bought one about a month ago and I use it for everything. Dead bug on the floor? No worries, I'll use the Dust Buster! The Hubby spills half a can of Copenhagen on the floor? It's ok honey, I'll clean it up this time! I'm ridiculously obsessed with this thing, so I see no reason for you to feel badly about wanting that Dyson!

Erin Monahan said...

Never even heard of one until I read this post. So, yeah, add it to your wedding registry. Seriously. Or, just tell everyone in your family that you want Target gift cards!

I'm with Becky. Front loading washer and dryer. I'd do lots of bad things for them! I'd do those bad things ON them and IN them, and on the floor in front of them, so long as I got them. Know why?

I like watching the clothes go around and around. Ha! How's THAT for nuts?

Yorksdevil said...

A consumer magazine that compared vacuum cleaners found that dysons are really good while they work but they break more than most. They did do better than hoovers - which are crap even before they break, apparently.

Mike said...

WHOA! She's gone from suck to blow!! - Space Balls

Angry Dad said...

Yep, we've got one, and when Anth went out and bought it I was like WTF did you go and spend $800 on a frickin' vacuum cleaner??? But I must admit, they are pretty amazing and does a bang up job cleaning up after 3 kids and a hairy shedding dog.

Lisa Goldstein/Kelly Kelly said...

carrie said...

You need to put one of those pretty little Dyson's on your gift registry!!

spidey said...

OMG, I am in love with my Dyson! Thanks for making get one just to make you jealous! Get this, even JASON used the Dyson and he was excited about it!!!

melissa b. said...

I not only use my Dyson, I swear I'm MAKING LOVE TO MY DYSON. I love it. Love it. We were going through a vacuum a year so if this sucker can last two years it's already saved us money.

Oh, and we call it our Boyfriend.

It's that good.

Izzy said...

I'm waiting for my current one to die so i can get one of those. I kill a vacuum cleaner about every three years so it won't be long.

You should register for one. Maybe some crazy rich person will actually get it for you!

(or maybe your crazy blog beyotches will *wink*)

cmhl said...

I have the purple dyson....


loveeeeeeeeeeeee it.

Jenn said...

My vacuum is about to die.

And it would be about time there was something else in the house that sucks besides me!

*gasp*

Did I just say that outloud? Nope I typed it. That makes it ok.

Virginia Belle said...

OMG.

dyson vacuums must be the dividing line between single women who still live in apartments and married women who have kids and houses.

i cannot relate to this post at all. why spend your money on a vacuum when you can buy stilettos or lip gloss?? i don't get it.

Karen said...

If you're serious about expensive but incredibly appealing eurovacuums, try Miele. Or Sebo. Or, uh, oh yeah, Bosch. Or was that the dishwasher? Anyway, if you've got an extra grand to drop on the coolest rugsucker EVER, check them out. I love my Miele.

creative-Type Dad (Tony) said...

You know, my wife really, really , really wanted one.
But now, the housekeeper uses it. It just sits in the closet and looks pretty for me.

Jenn (Rebeccatjade) said...

I love my syson... and seriously $500 is worth it! also there are Vacs that are over $1K! And i used one at a pervious job. It doesn';t compare!

Stephanie said...

Yeah, I was lusting over a food processer once, but I got over it.

Holly said...

Oh God, I LOVE my Dyson! Just got it paid off a few months ago, too. Did in on one of those 18 month no interest deals at Best Buy. It rocks.
