What could possibly be better than the "all-in-one?" The blender that is also a juicer that is also a smoothie dispenser. The Black Eyed Peas. Concealer that is also moisturizer that is also sunscreen. The notary that is also a chaplain that is also a D.J. The Swiss Army knife. These are the things that make life worth living.
I just ordered an all-in-one printer/fax/scanner/copier and am trembling in anticipation of its arrival. With such a machine I can rule the universe. I'm all, "Okay, Sally. You need that document by five o'clock? I'll fax it over and send a scanned version to your email. What the heck, I'll overnight 20 copies to you just in case." Yeah, life is going to get a whole lot sweeter. No more driving aimlessly around looking for signs in dingy windows advertising outrageously overpriced fax services. No more stealing Spike's keys and breaking into our church to use their copy machine for my projects. No more photographing important documents and spending 1/2 hour in Photoshop to make them printworthy. It's a dawning of a new era. The all-in-one will save us all.
What are your favorite all-in-ones? And don't bother saying mothers - that's too obvious!
