1. What do you consider a bad boy?

2. Do you change your bedding for the different seasons?

3. Do you/have you ever smoked cigarettes?

I like it all tucked in and I like to sleep in a room that is cold so I can have the covers up to my neck,all tucked in.  Yes, I'm 3 years old.  LoL.


Do you watch Big Bang Theory?  If not you won't get what I'm about to say, but....GAB sleeps like Sheldon.  Or at least, that's how he has to be to fall asleep.  On his back in the center of the bed, legs straight, wrapped up like a burrito, with his arms straight out at his sides and outside the covers.  And he has never seen BBT, so he doesn't understand why I think it's funny.

We had a beloved down comforter for over twenty years.   They last longer if you don't have to wash them as often, so we used comforter covers.   Plus you can switch out the look with different comforter covers.  Ours finally bit the dust.  I still miss it.  We're redoing our bedroom pretty soon and will get another one then, which will last until we die.  We're using quilts now.  I sort of collect Jinny Beyer quilts, but mostly hung them rather than used them.   Sort of in that I have two, but I want more. Now we're using them on the bed, temporaritly.

Is everyone speaking about Duvet Covers?

For the most part our bed is only made when we change the linens.

Lauren you have to call that bedspread "kitty camoflauge!"

Lol Lauren, when we were in Long Island last year, we were driving around dh's neighborhood that he grew up in. We stopped in front of a house that his uncle/aunt had built, lived in etc.  We were parked on the street, looking at it, just chatting and a woman came out of the house stood on her front porch, folded her arms and glared at us!  It was hilarious, so funny that the natives think they own the street also!  We stayed a bit...she did not appreciate it!

Joel flipped out one time because I was admiring someone's house and their dog was looking at the window at us.

"Stop it, mom!  The dog is watching!"

I mean seriously...what's the dog going to do...tell them?

like my sheets? I change them every week :-)   I just have the one comforter which we have to replace b/c the cats are slowly clawing it to death </strong>

I've changed over to 2 duvets, with a growing collection of duvet covers, because of the cats.  The duvet covers take the abuse from the cats, and with a 2nd duvet, when one of them pukes on the bed, I can take one to the laundromat and still have a clean one for the bed.  Target sells a polyfill/down blend that's not very expensive (and plenty warm).

That would drive me right around the bend.  I can see no point to "bedding" that isn't actually used.  It's like having 'guest towels" and then getting annoyed if someone dries their hands on them.  (which I'm not saying you do the thing with the guest towels, but it's an example of weird pointless items people put in their homes).

I can see a person wondering who is sitting in front of their house just staring at it but the dog, no. lol.
