There's a degree of comfort knowing that a recovering celebrity finds solace cleaning my carpets at least 3 times per week, if not more. All my friends and neighbors know about Britney, and frequently ask how she's doing. I reply "she's doing fine, living of the crumbs I throw her". lol And when she's having some "difficulties" getting her job done, I chalk it up to her immaturity and re-occurring substance abuse. Somehow it makes her tantrums a little more manageable. I have a spare Roomba 560 with the charcoal grey faceplate that I've named Tyra Banks. Tyra has yet to do a day's worth of work in my apartment, but I'm sure that day will come...when Britney moves on to greener pastures.


I forget who, but a rock musician (it may have been Dave Navarro) commented on how Britney reminds him of "one of those vacuum cleaner robots". Seems like you chose a good name :)

LOL, well then WIFE would've been okay. I thought you might've been HUSBAND, and to call Roomba WIFE, husband would get hit with a frying pan! :lol: But I really like MOM!

Well maybe I should get an industrial Roomba for the garage and name it Husband. When I set it on the task of cleaning the garage, it wouldn't get distracted and spend the day playing with the tools!

Actually, the Roomba that bumps around in the attic we call "Cousin It", or "It" for short.

A night vision camera caught 'It' in action in the photo below:

Hello.

Long time, first time. -And in a resurrection post :lol: .

We had our first Roomba in '03, but he got more flat tires than a big rig on the Cross Bronx. (A local joke.)

Roomba's recommendation at the time was crazy glue... so after several unsuccessful attempts, he went all-the-way back.

We just got our second one, a 572 Pet at Christmas. So far, a whole different animal. I've been fine tuning my positioning of the lighthouses and today he was magnificent.

His name?

"M-O" (pronounced "Mmmmoe") of course.

Ramona is a cool name...

Mine are not as creative... Ruby (560) and (doh!) Scooby...

Has anyone watched "Love The Beast"? I love old cars and there is a scene on that movie/documentary in which J.Clarkson from top gear explains why some cars have names... i believe it perfectly applies to these lil bots...

Regards!

My Roomba 572 is named "R2".


No, not after R2D2. My wife's name is Rachel, so my Roomba's name is Rachel-2 or R2 for short.

My Roomba is called "Aunty Jo".

I don't think I will go into the details why - suffice it to say it involves 'pubes'!

My Scooba is called "Aunty Claire" but that is no more sinister then that Jo has a sister-in-law called Claire...

Heh!

I named mine Dirty Girl Angelina Jolie because she is naturally attracted to dirt and doesn't hide the fact.

Mine is Marvin, as the depressing robot from Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy =)

But the truth is that I always call it Roomba anyway!
