the most annoying thing ever.

Remember the vacuum cleaners of the 80s? You know, the ones with the retractable cords? They whipped the cords around with such force that you were scared the plug-in would hit you in the face and give you a black eye? Well, somewhere along the evolution of the vacuum cleaner, the retractable cords became obsolete. Why? They were brilliant. In fact, I’d like to see ALL electronics switch to retractable cords (blow dryers, curling irons, coffee pots, alarm clocks, etc). Cords are the bane of my existence. I hate them and they are everywhere. They get tangled, collect dust and look messy. Why do I have to look at them? Why can’t the excess cord be stored within the device? BRING BACK THE RETRACTABLE CORD (or develop a technology that eliminates cords all together)!  On a side note, did everyone else know that vacuum was spelled with two “u”s? How can I be this old and not know how to spell vacuum? I would have bet my life that it was spelled vacume. Oh well.

a blog for anyone, but mostly for me.
