living it

I am no longer sleeping hamster style! I got a mattress in my new place! this replaces my makeshift bed consisting of (in order starting from the floor. actually, just the sub floor during december):
1 blanket
1 large parka
1 1-inch thick egg-crate style foamy
1 more blanket- that awesome kind they have in hospitals and carhartt makes hoodies out of.
1 set of sheets, a pillow and blanket for sleeping under.
I rolled it to the side most days, so at night I was literally making my bed. Anyway, I kept flip flopping from thinking I was a pathetic failure for having that as my bed, to thinking it was fucking rock and roll (that was stretching it, and usually involved some combination of pot, neil young guitar solos and janis joplin wailings) and then I would feel ridiculously spoiled for scoffing over sleeping conditions better than probably 90% of the world. Nonetheless, I am pleased to have both a floor and a mattress.

    after five (WOW) years of friendship I still cannot believe that you like the egg crate foam

    oh man, love the egg crate foam, but I would drop it in a second for a slab of precious memory foam. That stuff is like th first step toward sleeping in suspended animation
