I think I just got Wooted.

A few days ago my mother and I were discussing the size of the house I wanted to rent. She pointed out I would have a lot of work ahead of me to clean and vacuum such a big house. My reply? "Ooh, I can finally justify getting a Roomba!" 
Later that same day I put up the same thought on Twitter. You can even see where I said it right here.

So today when I saw the Woot was a Roomba, I was pleasantly surprised. Although, I am saving up for the deposit on the house still, and therefore, I can't afford a Roomba quite yet. (These foster kids I don't have yet are getting very expensive I tell you!) But I love to read the humorous Woot product descriptions, so I read it anyway, knowing I wasn't buying.

And then I saw my name. And all I thought was, "Oh wow, I wonder what kind of coding they did to put people's twitter names on their page like that?"

A minute later I got an email from someone saying, "Hey, you might want to check out Woot today."

I replied, "Yeah, I saw the Roomba, but I can't buy one quite yet."

But then I remembered, he doesn't know I want a Roomba. Or does he?

So I sent another friend a link to Woot, and asked them what they saw. She doesn't have a Twitter account, so I was curious what name would appear for her.

But she saw my name.

So I asked another friend to look, but didn't send her the link.

And she saw my name too.

And then I remembered what I twittered.

And holy canoli, Batman.

I think I just got Wooted. 

Do you think they would give me a free Roomba for using my name like that? (sidenote, since midnight I have had an unprecedented 17 new followers on Twitter. Coincidence? I think not.)

After all, the Roomba would be going to a good cause! My life with foster children budget is not going to be what you may call extravagant!


  1. I have a roomba, and love it but I also have a Hepa Filter Dust Devil too because of the allergies.

  2. If that's not a sign that you need to buy a Roomba, I don't know what is.

  3. Wow, I agree with Sara, definetly a sign and also a little weird.
    Don't you wonder how? I'd ask for some compensation.
