Free Stuff

I'm always a fan of free stuff. Can't remember the last time I actually won any (unless you count Scanner law rewards), but I keep trying. So anyway, 5 minutes for mom is giving away a Dyson vacuum. I of course had to zoom over there and enter.

We have 2 vacuums, neither of which works great anymore. One is a cannister style, which is pretty cumbersome to lug up and down the stairs. The other is a portable, bagless variety. It has a filter that plugs up after about 10 minutes of use, and then requires a 30 minute cleaning ritual followed by enough time to air dry before it can be used again. And both of them are missing a wheel. Fortunately, I don't vacuum very often, or I might find these things annoying.

I linked back to their site after entering, as they requested, but I really don't want all of you to rush over there and enter too. That of course would decrease my odds. (Do I have issues with being a little competitive? No, why do you ask?) But then, since my husband makes up at least 50% of my readership, that might be ok. Go ahead, honey - go enter! Double our odds!

I think our chances are about 1 in 1336. Wow. That must be some vacuum.

If I win I'll let you borrow it.

Thanks. Based on my track record, I should need it about twice a year. (Ok, maybe it's not quite that bad, but it's close.)

I'm trying to win it for Larry, not me. :)
