Oh, I’m sorry. I didn’t notice you reading there. I am seriously sleep deprived. I think I’ve touched on this topic before but I have a son. His name is Bobby and he has a crepuscular eating disorder. This means that he enjoys eating copious amounts of food at dawn and twilight. Occasionally he’ll nibble throughout the day, but he gets up before his parents. A typical night will consist of me being out for the count rolled up with my body pillow sometime around 11:30pm midnight if I’m lucky. By 5:00am, he swats me across the face a couple of times knocking my sleeping mask off to wake me and then stares. Just stares… You see, Bobby is a cat. And what a cat. He’s an adorable little loverboy. There isn’t a single violent bone on the cats’ body and he’s soft as a pillow. However, he is not the cleanest eater.
After stumbling my way half awake to the fridge to get him some wet food pre-dawn, I usually kick the dish on accident, spill some water, and on my worst mornings, step right ON his food from the day before… This is unacceptable according to my girlfriend, so it has been decide for me to make the investment in a pet placemat, as if we don’t have enough pet products already. That way if I spill more of the cats food (again, ME not the cat because that would be too far fetched), we can rest easy knowing that it’s not on the carpet. The really very nice carpet that the cat grinds its claws on anyway. We may as well invest in some nice indoor kitchen mats and olefin carpet for him to destroy while we’re at it.
Cats are jerks but… gotta love em.

Oh ya, oh ya! Spring is here! I got my new Spring kitchen mats with the flowers. Speaking of flowers, with flowers beginning to bloom and things coming back to life a smidge, comes the (for me) inevitable allergies. So armed with my navel sprays, cough drops and a horse-sized amount of antihistamines; I prepare for my days. Allergies are a cruel mistress, you see as George Carlin once said “…almost being sick is worse the actually being sick.” Allergies have all the tell-tale characteristics of your average flu; cough, sore throat, stuffy nose, headaches and confusion and just general malaise. Yet for all that…you’re not “really” sick. It is some limbo between staying home and cuddling up to your body pillow as you watch season after season of your favorite mindless trash tv shows, and being at work and being productive.
Thanks, to the almighty Zeus for acetaminophen, Pseudo epinephrine, and menthol for giving me the strength and wind in my lungs to survive yet another Spring. If not for that, I would definitely be posted up in a corner somewhere, nested in my body pillow and wearing a sinus mask and eye mask; yes both at the same time! I become somewhat of a pre-Madonna when I don’t feel well, as do most people I know. So when comfortable things are close or readily available I double up!
I certainly plan on bunkering down once I wipe my feet on my door mats and arrive home tonight. Sinking into the couch, and drown my sorrows in antihistamines till that sweet, sweet relief of sleep washes me over once more and I drift – nay, plummet into that land of nod.

In the last three weeks a good friend of mine came back into town. He was diving in the Gulf of Mexico for the last eight months and I guess you could say he had become a bit home sick. So, now he is back…and living in my living room. This is not a problem at all, since this guy and I are more like brothers than friends. However, I have noticed that some of my more cherished, nay; revered comfort products have been going missing or simply finding their way into his possession. This is a problem and needs to stop! After a long day at the office and then almost falling asleep on my folding exercise mat, I just wanted to be comforted with my beloved pillow.
Now, I love my Television. Seriously, I mean LOVE IT! So, naturally, I also love anything that will allow me to more easily and comfortably view my television from my bed. I have a cherished Reading Pillow that I use for the not so productive activity of watching TV. So, after a day of work I come home to ready myself for a bit of trash TV before actually having to do something productive, and what do I see; my bed, minus a TV Pillow. So, I naturally begin to hunt, and search for this beloved accessory of mine.
After a failed half hour of pain-staking rummaging, I finally found my back pillow, tucked away with my friend’s air mattress in the corner of my living room. A feeling of relief quickly washed over me, followed quite immediately by mischievous ideas to liberate his body pillow in retaliation. Perhaps I shall do so this weekend. Wish me luck and I’ll see you all next week.

The end of 2012 is quickly upon us. Now if you are thinking of partaking in the annual festivities (and you know you are) then you may need some pillows and comfort products to ease you through that inevitable hang-over this January 1st. You’ll need something to lay your weary head upon while you watch hours upon hours of standardized television in a vain attempt to subside that ever-present reminder of the night before. I find that the reading pillow is fantastic, na! – revolutionary product for these unproductive days. It allows for so many different sitting positions that would otherwise be very uncomfortable to do in bed. But not with this bad boy at your side, or should I say back.
But if you’re in the mood, or just simply incapacitated to the point where you would rather lay your day away, then the eco friendly therapeutic positioning body pillow it just the ticket. If you have not experienced the comfort, relaxation and down-right awesomeness of said body pillow then you are most certainly missing out, and the New Year is the perfect time to start new things!
Now if you just don’t have the energy to do anything, let alone get out of bed or watch television and you simply want to sleep in, but need to work around that pesky sun outside. Might I recommend the an eye pillow. Soft, silky and they will certainly keep out that light from your hung-over eyes there “day-walker”! No matter how little or how much you will have to drink this coming New Year’s Eve, we have the pillows and comfort products to keep you in bed to enjoy or recuperate your day away. And for those that will immediately begin their NewYears resolution to relax, stop stressing and take better care of yourself, we have the perfect zafu meditation cushion.
