Robot cannot be too creepy, too sneaky or too mean.


I must admit something, as a child growing up in the 60's, I truly believed that my future would be like the Jetsons, and that I would have a Rosie the Robot. I also thought we would be flying instead of driving by now. It's 2009 people, get with it!

It appears the Japanese will be the ones to get this accomplished and, most likely, at a price tag that we" mere mortals" can afford. Honda has the Asimo robot, which seems too child like, so that probably wouldn't work for me as I would feel obligated to give him an allowance. I didn't see an add to cart button, so that tells me I cannot afford him. But how do I save for something if I don't know how much its gonna cost me? Sheesh.

Toyota has come out with one just last fall (pictured at right). This guy looks great and he sweeps! Sweet!

C3PO would also be a great choice, he can climb stairs to my laundry room, and make me laugh. Love his dry sense of humor. Except he'd probably give me attitude about doing the laundry. I'm following him on Twitter now. Don't ask.

I cannot have a robot like this Archie freak character (pictured below left, like, how can you miss him?). He's too creepy. Who, in their right mind, would use one in their home with children. They would certainly have nightmares and be in therapy down the road. Come to think of it, I would have nightmares and need therapy.

The robot from I, Robot, Sonny, at first seemed pretty cool. I later decided, too sneaky.

And The Terminator, well, what can I say, too mean.

Instead of those silly jars that say "Plastic Surgery Fund" like I'd actually consider that, mine will read "Robot Needed" savings jar.

If you've been reading this blog for any length of time, you should know by now that I am hopelessly optimistic and therefore, will expect a cool robot one day. I mentioned this to my husband, and he's like, "sell more jewelry". Jeez, that's his answer for all my needs. Ok, don't go there.

What a funny funny funny post! Yep, I thought we'd all have Rosie the Robots by now and those glass bubble houses in the sky (where DID those stilts the house sat on go to????) - not to mention the flying cars - wha'happened?

I'd like the instant dinners that appeared with a press of a button in Star Trek. So I'd better start saving for that! LOL!

A robot! What a great idea. That's exactly what I need. This probably won't surprise you but I'm the eternal optimist too.
