Remember back, back...way back to last month when I went to BlogHer (YES, I know I promised not to talk any more about BlogHer, but this is important, so cut me a break)?
Well, one night during the conference, I attended a lovely party hosted by none other than the Mouthy Housewives themselves...
And while I was drinking and schmoozing and drinking and exchanging cards and drinking, Marinka and Wendi (both of whom I adore, and I was really excited to meet) told me to be sure to go over and sign up for the "free vacuum cleaner".
A free vacuum cleaner. Yeah, right.
They assured me that one of the generous sponsors for their party, LG, was sending everybody who came to the party and signed up a vacuum cleaner.
Okay. Sure. Somebody's gonna send me a vacuum cleaner for coming to a party.
"Okay. I'll sign up." I said, condescendingly. They seemed like nice women. I'll just play along...
"Can't wait for my 'vacuum cleaner', hahaha."
I'm picturing this...
The whole vacuum thing became something of a joke between me and my other little BlogHer friends. "Can't wait 'til I get my...vacuum cleaner!" Hahaha.
I even left a comment with Marinka a couple of weeks ago saying sarcastically "Where's my damned vacuum cleaner?!" Wasn't I funny?
Then on Friday morning, a man appeared at my door. He had a HUGE box.
"What's this?" I ask.
"Somebody sent you a vacuum cleaner."
I. Kid. You. Not.
This has appeared in my house...
I immediately called Becky "Holy Shit! I just got me a vacuum!"
"Shut. Your. Mouth." said Becky.
"That's what I said!" I replied.
Becky has not yet received her vacuum, but we feel certain it's on the way.
And I mean it people, this is not just a vacuum cleaner, this is ONE HELL OF A VACUUM CLEANER. This thing is an LG Kompressor LuV300B. It's got Dualforce+ Suction, a Vertical Cyclone System and a Hepa Filter! It's got a Click 'N Go detachable wand, that "reaches up to 14 feet for easy cleaning from floor to ceiling". Neato!
I checked it out, and this thing goes for $439 on Amazon!!
This thing is freaking crazy! I have been playing with it all weekend, and I still haven't figured out everything it can do. I'm thinking it might brew coffee.
Jimmy is in love with it. Don't tell him I told y'all this, or share this info with any of the guys he grew up with back in Brooklyn, but Jimmy loves to vacuum. It's his favorite chore. In fact, he's kind of a freak with it. I've caught him vacuuming the bathroom, the kitchen, the porch. He's out of control. Can you imagine what fun he's going to have with this detachable wand?!
And I'm telling y'all, we NEEDED THIS THING. Our old Hoover is on it's last legs. The attachment hose has a hole in it. It doesn't suck worth a shit. Or I guess I could say it sucks at sucking. Hehehehe, I crack myself up. And every time we use it, the air fills with stinky dust that's escaping from the body of the thing. It is in sad shape.
So THANK YOU Mouthy Housewives! My husband finally thinks that this blogging thing is worthwhile!
But how do these LG people afford to send out all these $400 vacuums? I mean, imagine the shipping! Could it really be worth it? I guess they expect us all to blog about it or something. Give them free publicity.
Yeah, I guess they're pretty smart.
And this almost makes up for missing out on those Jeggings.
