or, relative lack therein.
my vacuum is dead. it’s sucked in one too many pieces of dog fur. it was miraculous that it lasted for over 3 years, what with ernie shedding an extra dog a week. but i changed the filter, unscrewed the top and cleaned out the clumps of hair out of the niches and tubing, and still. the suckage is sadly lacking.
i was looking at the animal dyson (which made me giggle – got a pesky dog? vacuum him right up with the new animal dyson! overrun by wildebeest? chicken? feral hamsters? the animal dyson can handle them too!) which is expensive and i don’t really want a bagless vacuum again… too much dust and stuff goes flying when you empty it.
i’ve thought about an oreck.
but it all comes down to the fact that i can’t afford me no fancy appliances. so i’ll probably get another crappy one to last until i can.
