This thing sucks (in a good way)

Ever since Liz moved in with her cats there has been an insane amount of hair... both human and animal. She has two cats, I have a dog blah blah blah. I was given a gift certificate to Lowes and didn't really need anything so I ended up buying this Dyson hand-held vacuum. I always wanted a Dyson but didn't want to dish out $500-$800 for a frick'n vacuum cleaner(especially because I have hardwood floors). I have to say that the hand-held model is not really that bad. Man I love this thing! It really works and its easy to dump out and the filters can be washed out..blah blah blah...I could go on and on about the color alone. Its pretty amazing. But ladies and gentlemen, its almost perfect. There is only one complaint. The battery life. I was shocked that it only lasts for six minutes! Now granted the thing gets full of hair and debris WAY before the battery runs out (we have a lot of nooks filled with a lot of pet hair dust bunnies DAILY!) but still SIX MINUTES!! Battery life aside, I have to say that it is great to have in the studio. The clear reservoir lets you see all the nasty stuff you have been living with all this time as well as save any little shinny thing you may accidentally suck up. All and all its a nice little device. Although I kind of wish I had an army of them when the battery runs out. Damn you Dyson.
