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.

until they wake.

’twas new year’s eve at the lake house

and two of our

fellow celebratory foot soldiers

and their loyal dog were down 

though they made a miraculous comeback 

returning to the fray for the midnight hour

and it was something to behold.

turn down the heat.

glenn frey the cat not the rocker

is really upset

about the ongoing stretch of excessive heat

and has decided

to vocally protest

each night

however

i have a different style

and feel that silent protests

might be much more effective.
