Replacing the Robot

April 18, 2008

Gadget, Lauren

Lloyd’s parents are coming for the weekend to attend the Gala (Lloyd’s school’s fundraiser) and hear him sing on Sunday. I thought we could have waffles Saturday morning, and maybe Lloyd’s dad could help whip the egg whites.

Do you think this’ll be ok?

It’s construction should be exceedingly simple.

UPDATE: It didn’t work as well as just using the big whisk – too much time and it is HEAVY!

In action.

    Ha! I love your caption.

    I wonder how many other things you could do if you just connected simple household items to a drill. You could attach a Swiffer to a drill for dusting, attach a round-headed brush for cleaning glassware, attach your cats for a noisemaker…

      A scapel for nose hair trimming…

        … or cats for a nice toilet bowl cleaner

        (sorry-but I can’t get the image of the cat in the drill out of my head thanks to Brad, whom I hope wakes up tomorrow with scissors for hands—not cool scissors, but giant, dull, plastic ones)

    Am I the only one that owns a hand mixer?

        Hand mixers are such uni-taskers. Can you wreck a door with a hand mixer? (See two posts ago.)

          If it’s a KitchAid hand mixer you can! Those can do everything!

          Christina -- I’m so glad I’m not alone. 😉

            Oops. I meant KitchenAid. How did I manage to screw that one up? I love everything KitchenAid. I think I need a nap.

          Oh, and yes, I saw yesterday’s post. It made me think of why all those crazy and obvious warnings are on things. You know what I’m talking about -- Don’t use curling iron while sleeping. Don’t use blowdryer in the bathtub. Don’t use power tools while drunk.

        We’ve got Mom and Dad up here for the weekend. Lauren and Mom are trying to get us to go for a walk. They say it’s really nice outside, but I’m going to need some sort of independent verification.

          It is lovely outdoors. You, Lloyd, might sweat, though, underneath that thick beard and hair growth atop your head. Perhaps a shave and a cut are in order????
