Standard

not a painting of me, but i’m kind of jealous of the princess’s bed.

(except for the annoying vegetable keeping her awake )

  restful gentle dreams 

soft, fluffy, feathery, warm

in my sleeping nest.

*”The Princess and the Pea” (Danish: “Prinsessen paa Ærten”; direct translation: “The Princess on the Pea”) is a literary fairy tale by Hans Christian Anderson about a young woman whose royal ancestry is established by a test of her sensitivity. The tale was first published in May of 1835.

Andersen had heard the story as a child, and it likely has its source in folk material, possibly originating from Sweden, as it is unknown in the Danish oral tradition. Neither “The Princess and the Pea” nor Andersen’s other tales of 1835 were well received by Danish critics, who disliked their casual, chatty style and their lack of morals.

dreaming in a plufi

The Plufi is a comfy-looking dog bed made specifically for humans and features a thick pillow border, memory foam, and soft faux fur. The built-in handles allow for excellent portability and the circular design provides an enveloping napping environment that can soothe the most jagged of nerves.

Inspired by the classic dog bed, the Plufl is designed to alleviate stress and anxiety by providing a space where you can rest, recharge, and rejuvenate.

The team is raising funds through Indegogo in order to bring the Plufl to the public. Orders placed have a cautious shipping date of January 2023.

 Plufl is set to ship in January 2023 but may be slightly later depending on your location Please note that this is an estimate as you’re pre-ordering the product, and production delays could arise.

snoozetern.

Standard

If your summer plans already include laying in bed all day, you may be the perfect fit for the Mattress Firm’s new job opening. The company is looking for a “snoozetern” to test mattresses at their Houston, Texas headquarters by sleeping in them.

The Mattress Firm’s intern will be paid to spend 30 hours a week lounging in bed this summer. Job duties include assessing “the optimal head and foot positions” for reading, eating, binge-watching, and of course, sleeping in bed. When they’re awake, the snoozetern will also be responsible for creating written and video content for Mattress Firm’s website and social media platforms.

The ideal candidate is 18 or older, has housing and transportation access in the Houston area, knows how to use video editing software, and is “passionate about sleep and comfort.” Mattress Firm will select three to five finalists out of the applicants to create a short video pitching themselves, and from those candidates one will be picked for the job.

To apply, head to Mattress Firm’s website and submit your resume and relevant information. But you’d better hurry: Applications are due May 3, and the intern will be selected by the middle of May.

“every morning is a battle between the superego and the id, 

and i am a mere foot soldier with mud and a snooze button on her shield.”
