defying gravity

It must have been the good vibes floating around from so many of you, because remarkably, I am very on the mend. Thank you.

Now on to the random bits:

J-Dog has to pull an all-nighter tonight. When enough people call in sick and the place still needs a minder, it falls to him to go in. It's one of those rare cases where shit actually rolls up hill. And while I am sorry that he must endure a wakeful night baked in hallucinations I am secretly delighting in having the whole bed to myself. Does that make me evil? Maybe so, but I'll make up for it, so read on.

Madame Chick posted last week about recognizing folks before they are gone - in short, she's put out a call to speak to that one blog you can't keep away from - the one (and while there are many, yes) the one that knocks you flat, has you doubled on the floor, or sitting absolutely still with tears in your eyes. It's at Mrs. Chicky's lovefest and you can read about it at length. It's a good reminder - so many folks are closing up shop and once they decide to do so, they hear all about how their blog meant so much, and I'd imagine it makes that going bittersweet when it should be triumphant. Honoring others with a grateful heart is about as golden as one can get. Kind of like not waiting till the funeral and such. If it speaks to you, check it out.

See, I told you I'd make up for the bed hogging thing. Or not. But I am still taking all the pillows and sleeping dead center.

Go girl. Sleep in that whole bed. I do so every night, and it's marvelous! In light of lovefest smack talking, I have to say that you have a really riveting blog. I'm still reading all the back story, but I'm sucked in! Good work. Consider your blog hugged!

That post is really, REALLY long.

Maybe I'll read it. Maybe I won't.

(Hi, I'm snarky. And odd.)

I love sleeping in the bed myself, when my husband travels it's scary (chicken shit that I am) but I love sleeping smack in the middle and rolling back and forth for the cold spots for my feet. I'll check out Mrs. Chicky when I come back from work. Glad you're feeling better!!

Jenny said...

What a beautiful idea! (And I'm not just talking about hogging the bed.)

Mrs. Chicky said...

Thanks for spreading the love! And I like that whole "Madame Chick" thing, it makes me sound like a French woman who owns a home of ill repute.

Thanks for visiting my blog this weekend. I am loving my stay here so far. You are a wonderful writer.

I will check out Mdm. Chicky. I've got love flu I think and need a cure.

My husband gets out of bed before me every week day. We have a waterbed, so once his weight is out of it, it is just so snuggly. It's my secret favorite time of the day.

There is nothing better than bed hogging in my opinion. My hubby travels alot for work and although I miss him while he is gone ... I savour the bed hogging, sleep-in-the-middle-kinda-nights!

Momish said...

Having the bed to yourself is never a luxury you should feel guilty about! I will have to check out Madam Chicky! And thanks for your kind and encouraging words you have left for me, they mean a lot!

Bed hogging. Bad? NO F'ING WAY! I LOVE when Ravioli has to work late or when he's having a rough time falling asleep & heads downstairs. I LOVE it!!!!!
Glad you're feeling better!
Yeah, you probably saw my ridiculously loooong comment on Ms. Chicky's post about blog love.......the problem is: picking just one. I can't do it, I tell ya. I can't pick just ONE! Ugh!!

glad to hear you are feeling better.

I love having the bed to myself!

I must concur with the previous posters who extol the virtues of sleeping all by one's lonesome. Not that I am actually alone when my husband is away--I use it as an excuse to let the dog sleep in bed with me. Of course, she leaves me with even LESS room than my husband, but she's warmer and more cuddly, so it works out.

Hey now! You're supposed to be pimpin' other gasbag reviews on Sunday, silly woman!

Next week is your turn! Get reviewin'! :-)

Did you enjoy having the bed all to yourself?

Glad you are feeling better -- sorry I missed the chance to come and give you well-wishes when you first needed them. (So far behind reading all my blog faves.)
