I'm a sardonic blogger, snapper, scribbler and rhymer; a virtual space invader who indulges in cheerful negativism, morbid self-deprecation and bleak humour.

          1. Me too, in the morning. Here, in USA and Canada, they sometimes use brand names as verbs. «I’m going to electrolux the floors today» … or I’m going to hoover the floors – insert any brand. There are other things than vacuums but I can’t think of it right now. To me, it just sound too funny.


          2. I know about hoover being used as a verb, but never heard about other brands. Now I’m imagining some obscure local brand, like ETA, Czech electronics maker: Just put the cake in the ETA and ETA the floor. Hilarious.
