32 months and ZERO interests in Potty...

My little girl, 32 months, has shown absolutely ZERO interest in potty training. I've talked up the panties, she goes in the bathroom with me, I detail what's happening, ("Look, Mommy is using the potty, Mommy is tee-teeing, Mommy is wiping, do you want to flush? Watch Mommy wash her hands...").
But NO interest.
Is this normal? She is an only child, and I am a SAHM, so there's really no other little children she's around enough to experience "potty-going" with. She also has no cousins her age, so that's out too.
Since she's not in daycare, it's really not THAT big of an issue, but I would like to get her trained. We've read books, we've watched videos, and we have a potty, but she only likes to wear the bowl as a "hat", and then yell down in the hole because of the nice echo... (um, yeah...) She won't sit on the potty at all. Her dollies aren't interested in sitting on the potty either.
Is there anything else I should be doing? Will she just wake up one day and decide she's interested? Should I push harder, or less? Should I even worry about it, since day-care is not an issue, nor will it be? Any thoughts/advice would be appreciated! Thanks.
ETA: I also have quite a few family members who are saying, "She's not potty trained YET? You're home all day with her, why not?" So I do wonder if there's something else I could be doing, or maybe I'm doing something wrong?
