Last night, I was working on eBay listings with my dear husband, and my MSN Messenger popped up with an IM from my friend Julie.

"Dood" was all it said.

So I tapped back the proper response "sweet".

Curious, I went on to ask what was going on to make her ping me with such a ... statement? Anyway, I wanted to know what she was on about.

Above shamelessly stolen from last night's TC. :D

On with my story. Julie answers me, "You made videos of a vacuum cleaner??"

Well, yes. We did. Rich found an old Hoover 918 in his picking travels, and thought some collector might like it, so he picked it up. People who buy vintage vacuums like to know that they work, and a video is better than a verbal description, so we did this:

And then, after final assembly, this:

Funny, no? Honestly, it's not nearly as funny as the guy who was extolling the virtues of his Patriot canister vacuum while talking about the end of the world and petting his cat. But I sure hope it sells the Hoover!

The comments!

From trashablanca:

In Armando's Thoughts for ben masel, ben himself can't resist creating some New Rules. ben is a treasure and an icon and a legendary pain in the ass. May he continue doing what he does best, subverting and rabble-rousing.

From Eddie C:

JekyllnHyde's Elizabeth Warren Came Prepared cracked me up.  

From zenbassoon:

In my diary about Republicans in MN, (http://www.dailykos.com/... ),  LeftHandedMan sums up exactly why Conservatives think they can and often do get away with all sorts of repugnant things.

From maybeeso in michigan:

sboucher identifies an excellent source for training in getting the Liberal message out clearly.

My picks:

I found this gem by tytalus to be worthy of a smirk and maybe a giggle ...

When did "sharing" become a dirty word? greywolfe359 learned to share in preschool ... and so did I.

Go wind, just you've been doing all along, sez *Gooserock. But, as Glen the Plumber warns us, we have to watch out for wind spills. :D

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
