Glitter stars 1: Roomba 0

So, on Saturday the family came down to Fareham, and while here The Gnu got to open his birthday presents and cards. And my darling sister elemnar chose to booby-trap her card with what must have been an entire pack of foil stars. Thanks, elemnar.

Now I do have a Roomba, and so I thought that this wouldn't be an issue as it would be able to sweep/vacuum them all up...

Well, it turns out that glitter stars give Roombas indigestion. Mine in particular has vomited them up all over my flat while trundling around "cleaning" it today. Including, somehow, underneath a sheepskin rug. I can see I'll be finding them for some time to come (and they're sharp little stars as well!).

Bad Roomba. No dust bunnies for you.
