1. Are you a heavy or light sleeper?

Sleep is elusive for me. It always has been. But I would like to bring up a couple of points.

a) in college, after getting so fed up about not sleeping, I tried several prescriptions for sleeping pills. The first was Ambien. My doctor told me to take the ambien and stay up for about 45 minutes before I went to bed (I came to find out that this was NOT sound advice). Anyways, I did just that and at the time I lived alone in my townhouse in Kansas. I was down in the basement on the computer and the lights were out. I remember the screen getting fuzzy (as had fur) and I could see people out the corner of my eyes whispering. I knew it was a hallucination and I thought it was FUN TIMES. So I kept taking them. Over the course of the next week or so, I saw tiny trolls dancing on my curtain rods, I baked only to realize I had been baking after I woke up, and once...while on the phone with my best friend who lives in Seattle...I was pretty sure that she was right next to me in bed just chatting away.

My favorite memory was when I was letting my dog Shelby lick my face (I dont really let him lick me...especially not my face). But in my Ambien induced haze, I thought he was a prince anointing me into his kingdom.

For some reason, my dumbass told the doc they were making me trip out and she stopped prescribing them.

Oh. Those were the days.

b) I fart a lot in my sleep. I never used to. But for the 10 months I have been dating farting (in her ear shot). And if you know know I am farty. So I have figured out that since I don't "let go" during the day, it comes out when I am having sleepy-time. And it wakes me up. The noise...not the smell. And then I lay there, petrified that Heather might have heard. But luckily, she is a sound sleeper. She even sleeps through the times she farts on me in her sleep. Sweet girl.

c) I sleep super sound after a pre-sleep love fest. Amen

2. If you were made into a professor for a day, what topic would you lecture on?

Acting the way you want to feel. I will blog about this shortly.

3. What’s a skill you’ve always wanted that you don’t currently have?

How to style my hair and makeup.

4. Have you ever been in a real cat fight?

Well, 8th grade...I was at a party. This girl, Kellum...she didnt like me. I was sitting on a table and she came up to me and said "You should go on weight watchers"...and my response was "You should go on HO watchers". Man...that was good. Anyways...she slapped me. It was totally worth it.

I would like to get in a barfight just once. Of course, when I picture this barfight in my head...I never get hit. Mama doesnt like pain.

5. Repeat question: Summarize your week in real life and in blog land.

Blogland is good. Just typing away.

My real life is good as well. I just found out I didn't get a position I had applied for here at at the moment...I am very very sad. But everything happens for a reason and someday I will understand this one. But I have a wonderful girlfriend, a good job now, and people in my life that love and support me. It could be worse :)

Have a great weekend!


  1. ohohoh, the hair and makeup thing, yeah, I want that skill too!

  2. I gonna go tell my doctor that I'm not sleeping well and ask her to put me on Ambien... :)

  3. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I have followed you for a bit now and just love you and your blog and the wonderfulness of it all!

    Oh, and I am convinced you have found the one when you hear them fart in their sleep and you're not grossed out (I am normally mad grossed out by farts, I don't know why). You and Heather are very lucky to have found each other :)

  4. I'm sorry you didn't get the other job you wanted, but hopefully they'll consider you for it in the future. :)

    Ps. - Barfights? Sadly, not they're all cracked up to be.

  5. Ho watchers...haha - freaking love that. Thanks for doing're good at it.

  6. Oh, we are so getting into a barfight for BOOBS 2.0. You are coming, right? I can't remember if you posted that you are coming, but I really hope you are.

    I'm so sorry about the job, but their loss! You know what they say, when one door closes another window opens. Maybe that's not exactly what they say, but you know what I mean.

  7. I'll join in the barfight at BOOBS!

    I know how you feel with not getting the job you wanted - I dealt with that shortly before I was laid off. Unfortunately, I do know the reasons why and they had to deal with politics...anyway, I did end up getting laid off, was able to spend the last 2 months of my father's life with him, which I would not have been able to do otherwise, and ended up getting another job with someone I've known for years (at the same company). The journey sucked, but in the end, I ended up somewhere pretty ok. Maybe it's not where I envisioned, but it's pretty ok and I will take it.

  8. Hi honey I'm sorry you didnt get the job. That just means there is a better one out there. Remember when you saw people living in shelbys fur? I miss you!!!!!!

  9. Great answers... I have never slept with Prince Valium but King Nyquil rocks! Also the big O is like the best sleeping pill on earth...
