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.

this may or may not be an actual photo of me in inaction
imagine my disappointment
when receiving the response below
after volunteering for a study
that i was born to
training for this my whole life
i am a natural
this is my skill set
known to fall asleep literally anywhere at any time
regardless of what is going on around me
especially within minutes of being seated
as a passenger in any moving vehicle
who gets a rejection letter from the circadian research lab?!

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.

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

to the breezy rain
stormy waters rolling onto shore
and i’m soon to be
sleeping by a dock in the bay.

sleepover party with the grandies
all tangled up and diagonal
one falls out
gets scooped back up
put in the middle
folded into the mix
we are off!
when I’m sleeping i do a lot of living.
