  3. I prefer the controller thank you very much. If I wanted to jump around I'd go outdoors or chase the cat..haha. Amazing though, crap! I used that word again.

  4. Is that like Pac-Man?
    You are such a great talent.
    I know I'm always in for a treat when I visit you.
    Loved your 55
    Thanks for playing, and including me in your writing activity, and have a Kick Ass Week-End

  6. My house is just like yours - totally oblivious of commands! :)

    Loved your 55!

  7. Oh, I want to know the secret of getting the house clean on command too!

  8. Amen, sistah!

  9. Is that like Pong? Ha ha. My favorite game is still PacMan because those are the only two games I have ever played. Crazy, isn't it?

    Nice to meet you too.

  11. A contractor friend of mine is building a "smart house" in which you can control the heating & lighting from your ipad/iphone (even if you're not home). I'm going to ask him if you can also control the cooking & cleaning. Wouldn't that be amazing?

  12. Yep! Hubby once asked what I wanted for dinner and I replied, "A replicator, like on Star Trek. Does the cooking for you..no clean up or leftovers".

    Clever one!

  13. We're getting closer, but I think there's intrinsic value in doing it for yourself.

  17. Loved this! I also wish my house would obey simple commands, but I'm having enough trouble getting the husband and child to listen!

    ReplyDelete
  18. My house never obeys either! As a matter of fact, it is often quite oppositional!

    ReplyDelete
  19. "Clean" might be a future possibility with robots. :)

    2011 was a year full of changes.

  20. I leave a list for the house and surprisingly 4 teenagers that reside in it, follow the directions to a T. House is very happy and so is Mom.

    ReplyDelete
  21. House never obeys!!! Almost as bad as kids and dogs. LOL. (I loved this.)

    ReplyDelete
  22. Now, that is exactly what I needed today...a house that obeys wishes. As it goes, reality shows husband a messy house when he comes home tonight. Tomorrow, tomorrow.

    Sounds like you got some great Christmas gifts...and you deserve them!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I can hardly wait for the house to listen to that "cook" command. Great, fun write!

    ReplyDelete
  24. i love this!....how i wish house would be at my command!

  28. I have been running around the house begging it to clean, vacuum, dust, and still it just sits there and does nothing. I am thinking of just getting rid of it and waiting until they make one of those houses like in the Jetson's. Although I do worry about getting a Terminator house that decides to get rid of me, but I am sure the house will outlast me anyway. I think I am going to sleep with one eye open from now on. This house scares me.

    Thanks for playing with us this week at Theme Thursday.

    God bless.
