I don't want this post to take attention away from the new film which is the post directly below. Compliments are appreciated, as is hate mail - you would be surprised how many people who profess to believe in freedom of speech send you hate mail for expressing yourself. I have had three emails from people saying that they hope I die. Well, I will die, but you might have to wait for a bit.

Anyway, I just wanted to say, I sleep on my stomach, does anyone else do this? I am the only person I know that does.

    Actually, yes - I do! I always thought I was a freak but I'm glad to know I'm in good company!

    Yes, it is very freaky, not to mention slightly bed hoggish. Goddammit, you will just have to learn to sleep on your side like everybody else!!! Conform I tell you - CONFORM!

    I sleep on my side..after I cry myself to sleep thinking of the dying children and innocents who's lives are lost in the name of oil and religion.

    As for the hate comments, I treat them with the same respect that I would have for the rantings of a bug. As for sleeping, in my youth - on the stomach and now, back and forth side to side.

    I tried sleeping on my stomach, but I couldn't get it out and had to settle for a mattress instead.

    Bedhoggish? I'm not that bloody fat, m'dear! In fact, I sleep face down on my belly without ever encroaching on the other side of the bed!

    ...although that's actually quite sad in it's own right since I currently sleep alone and have obviously not yet got used to having the entire bed again...

    I was being self indulgent there...I am just thankful that we have beds in which to indulge our odd sleeping habits...unlike our brothers and sisters in the middle east (not to mention our very own displaced and homeless) that have nothing to rest upon but bare concrete or's a shitty state of affairs all round innit?

  • At 9:23 pm, Blogger Praguetwin said…

    Yes, about half the time. I fall asleep on my side, but I always wake up on my stomach. Is that strange?

    I have a really nice matress and I am very thankful for that.

    I sleep on my stomach with a dog at my feet and a cat on my head...and I still sleep on one side ( was married too long- get sleep on the right side yet...) and as for the jerks that leave death wishes, you can only file them in the great dumpster of Ignorance- I am sure Their God will have mercy on them Someday...(hmm, or is it justice)....and yeah, I agree with Dusty- it is hard to sleep while we have Criminals running the Country and hurting people in other lands ( and at home)

  • At 8:46 pm, Anonymous Anonymous said…

    Just found your site...and yes, I sleep on my stomach, it's more relaxing and restful to sink into the bed that way then to try to on your back...never have been able to manage to sleep on my back, sometimes start on the side, but always end up buried in my pillows, tummy down, best sleep. So don't feel odd, you're in a special group of us who know how to get the best night's sleep! (especially once I cleared the 'other half' from the other half!!)

    Arse of the month

    The inaugural 'Arse of the month' award goes to our very own Scottish First Minister Jack (Joke) McConnell. He seems to spend a lot of his time sucking up to english politicians and yet it appears they don't even know his name. Follow the link to see..
