I seem to have come up with more energy from somewhere, and that plus the roomba is leading to assorted areas of fun. It's a whole lot easier to vacuum when all you have to do is the prep, and then a happy little animated coaster does the zooming about and sucking. It's not a deep vacuum, but it's better than none!
R. Daneel has mostly managed to stay out of trouble, although he just managed to get himself wedged half in the air because of a magazine on the floor. He beeped pitifully until I came and rescued him. Nibiki-chan was amused. She seems to think that the robot vacuum cleaner darting in every direction is a show for the purpose of her entertainment, although she is not inclined to give chase.
