another one of those milestones to maturity...  
I just decided to buy a carpet steamer instead of a Wii.

Though after visiting noradannan and mechasquid and seeing what total bizarro-world games you can play on that thing, and the bit where I'd really like to become awesome at Guitar Hero so I will be less embarrassed on the next visit and apparently that now exists for Wii-

I need a carpet steamer. Really. (And if you're asking "God, who needs her very own carpet steamer?" I will answer you with "Any neurotic twentysomething who has just adopted a non-house-trained dog." Especially when that neurotic twentysomething has left the dog with her not neurotic sister for a week, and the not neurotic sister just called and said, "ehm, don't ask why, but you need to get a carpet steamer.")

If only I didn't need food and shelter I could have both!

(My vacation is awesome. I'm in love with the lack of responsibility. I must cook up some plans to become independently wealthy and/or be paid room and board for knitting, writing, and traveling to see friends and family.)

Hey, just so you know...you can check around local stores that offer carpet streamer rentals. Our Wal*Mart rents Rug Doctors for like $20 for a 24-hour period. Hardware stores often rent them as well. They should also have the carpet soap for it (and accessories for cleaning upholstery if you so desire).

It might help until you either house-train the dog or get your own steamer.

That is much more affordable than buying my own carpet steamer! I'll have to check that out when I get back to town. There are no Wal-Marts near us, but I'll bet Safeway would do it...

Glad I could help.

Besides, as someone who owns both a Wii and Guitar Hero for said Wii...I must do my part to help share the Wii love. :D

I would totally be renting a carpet steamer and buying a Wii. There's maturity, then there's self-deprivation. ;-)

... that might be a really good suggestion! I'm all attached to this Bissell cleaner I used that a friend of mine had (soooo much fun -- ehm, I'm weird), but perhaps I will be brave and figure out how to rent Rug Doctors after all. :)

Marry a rich orphan?

That's what my parents said! My dad thinks I would make an excellent trophy wife.

(Hey, I'd even clean the carpets!)

You know, you can always come visit again and play with our wii...

Also, I'll totally join your knitting commune. Just let me know how you figure out that not-working thing...

Heh. Almost beats my reason for getting a carpet cleaner STAT! That was the day we woke up to a dining room full of feathers and bird-bits. When Karin had recently learned to crawl. Needless to say, by afternoon we owned a carpet steamer. :/
