I contend that "foetus" should be re-named "fluffy li'l bunny."

eta supporting evidence:

auntie aubrey 09-26-2007 02:59 PM

i'm a yearner and a starfish. i get my best sleep as a starfish but i fall asleep faster as a yearner.

i don't understand how people can sleep freefall. i can't stand lying on my stomach. makes me feel smothered.

Usually the fetal position for me..the cat likes it best. :rolleyes: If I roll over to my back, she stands on my chest til I can no longer breathe, convincing me that sleeping so she can spoon her back into my abdomen, is indeed the best position.

auntie aubrey 09-26-2007 05:24 PM

aw, one of my kitties tried to get me to spoon in the fetal position the other night. i couldn't sleep that way so i had to put him up in his usual spot next to my pillow.

i can't fall asleep fetal, i'm too aware of the bend of all of my limbs. i think that's why i'm a starfish, too. i can't be tucked at all.

Gee, I often sleep on my side, slightly tilted towards my stomach. I always figured its that way coz I have a kickstand.:cool:
Also, I always go to bed and lie on the side oppisite of my clogged nose. One side is always blocked, but it changes, and lying to the open side allows more air. Too, I sleep on an airbed, so I never toss and turn.

so i guess tomorrow's question won't be "what gender is earthling?"

Tunesmith 09-26-2007 07:31 PM

Hmm...I've actually never thought about how I sleep before, but I think I can say I'm something like a Freefalling Log...

Being a teenager, me'n sleep have a distant relationship, so I'm usually so out of it by the time I crawl into bed that there's not much time for contemplating which position I sleep in - all remaining mental activity goes into figuring out how I'm going to get onto the bed without falling off again. :D

So it's midnight anywhere. ? next my friends - What was your favo(u)rite vacation/holiday?

Stephi_B 09-27-2007 07:03 AM

The three weeks down in Apulia, Italy (yeah I know that's sort of boring with me and my Italy-tick ;)), more exactly said in Monopoli (yes, there's a city of that name!). That was when I was 11 or 12. We stayed in a holiday flat, one of only three they had at this farm (they planted olives mainly), in the other two flats Italian families from Milan stayed (it's so good to make holidays w/o other Germans! :D).
Day time: beach or sightseeing, late afternoon: usually invitation to a wine or two at the landlords' - all totally la-familia-familial!, evening: hanging out with the town kids I befriended on like the first or second day - playing table-football at the beach bar (spent most of my money on them gettoni thingies you needed for the balls), visiting them at home and once we drove around on the back the older boys' mopeds.

:)

Couple of weeks in England, mostly London, when I was 13. I think it was the first time I really realized the globe is real.

I was from a small town, and some of the folks I saw on the subway opened my eyes to the many ways of doing one's hair. I was punked out in no time. And the continental breakfast was a nice revelation.

I did get a bit sick of potatoes, though.

i fondly remember those halcyon days inside the water bottle


we thought they'd never end

T.I.P. 09-27-2007 09:48 AM

probably a trip to India when i was 21.
-> Bombay: the awe of being immerged in an ocean of people who live peacefully together despite precarious conditions
-> Goa: driving around on a scooter in the midst of the rice paddies, drinking fresh coconut juice on the beach while watching the cows go by, haggling over prices with the locals on market day

that's a tough call. the trip through south dakota and wyoming stands out in my mind. especially hiking around devil's tower.


picture chosen to convery happiness.

the coolest thing about devil's tower is the acoustics of the surrounding valley. as you hike around the base you become intensely aware of the hushed quiet of the woods. then, if you're lucky and you're there on a day when people are rock climbing up the face of the tower, you'll suddenly hear a voice calling from startlingly near. you'll look around and wonder where this voice is coming from, as no one in your party has spoken and there's no one else within view on the path.

a moment later you'll look up and realize you're hearing conversation between two rock climbers 2/3rds of the way up the tower. they're not shouting, they're speaking. and you can hear every word with crystal clarity.

it's bizarre and wonderful and awe-inspiring.
