This weekend, I am going to buy a Dyson.

This is the first time since hitting the quarter-century that I've actually acted/felt my age. I'm sure I'll find some way to balance things out. Possibly by finally writing a story.

Daisy: "They're younger than us!"
Tim: "Only physically."

I had the same feeling when I did exactly the same thing.

On the bright side, you can see all the dirt it sucks up. Wow!

Dysons were invented to get blokes to do the hoovering. There's something disturbingly cool about playing with something that looks like a hybrid between a space capsule and a scramjet from the Jet Propulsion Lab.

"The ball" dyson doubly so. Yes, the ball in the middle of the hoover makes it more flexible so that it can go round awkward shapes... but do the adverts portray somebody hoovering round the back of the sofa to show of how effective it is? No, they show one of the devices zooming around a blank white stage, seemingly of it's own volition — as if to say: "sure, this may cost ten times as much as your bog-standard hoover, but it corners like a demon!"

Note to self: Acquire unfeasibly complicated kettle, feign ignorance of its workings, all the while adopting rigorously pro-tea stance.

clear glass ones are the only way to go, its as addictive as watching the washing machine, but with a more frequent hit and less damp clothing at the end
