Today's Letters: Dear Mr. Loerke, yesterday was our first cold morning of Fall. Thank you for calling and reminding me to wear my mittens! Dear October, this month you will have 5 Sundays, 5 Mondays, and 5 Saturdays. This only happens once every 823 years. Reason #848 why you're the shiz. Dear SPIN Magazine, recently you listed U2's "Achtung Baby" as the #1 album of the past 25 years. Loerke survey says, "Agreed." Dear Nefertimmy, sometimes you like to take naps on the floor wrapped like a mummy. Is this because you're not wearing any clothes? Are afraid of creepy crawlies? Or do you just like violating Snuggie's copyright laws? Over and out.

When was the last time you took a nap? Casa de Loerke are big fans of the Saturday afternoon snoozer.

Not for a few weeks actually - probably explains why I feel like I'm losing it lol. Last time I dozed off on the floor I ended up with back ache and had to roll across the floor then hitch myself up via a chair lol.

Sunday afternoon tends to be when I nap to catch up reading for the week ahead lol.

I take naps daily, during meetings at work. It helps to paste eyeball sticker on my glasses, however it gets a bit weird when I'm supposed to be running the meeting. 20 years of marriage with the missus today. Owe it all to good Mexican martinis, mimosas made with cheap champagne and expensive orange juice, her ever-lasting good parts, me making coffee while she makes the bed, me cooking while she cleans, romance in the nick of time and the constant education of learning when to keep my trap shut.

Sorry to be Ms. Debbie Downer, but the 5 Saturday/Sundays/Mondays or 5 Fridays/Saturdays/Sundays thing is a myth. It happens much more frequently than once every 823 years-- happened in January 2011 in fact, and will in December 2012. More info here: http://www.snopes.com/inboxer/trivia/fivedays.asp

October is still the shiz, though :)

I cocoon myself up in blankets as well. Not as bad as when I was a little girl though. I would curl into a ball at the corner of my bed with a million blankets on top of me. One time when I was 6 or something, I looked so convincingly like a pile of pushed away blankets that my mother thought I was missing. For 2 hours that morning, I was a missing child. I yawned and stretched awake to find a room full of concerned people on the phone with the police.

oops.

Now that I'm back in grad school, I don't get nearly enough sleep, so I take little catnaps here and there. My last solid nap was Sunday afternoon. I LOVE Sunday afternoon naps.

Naps are the best :) If college wasn't so time consuming I would take a nap every afternoon :D

Every since my daughter (5 as of yesterday!) stopped taking naps, so did I. I miss my naps.

Nearly every Sunday goes like this:
Church
Mom's house for lunch
Afternoon nap/football viewing (seasonal)
Wake up confused about what day it is
Pizza or Chinese takeout
Trouble falling asleep at night b/c of said nap.

STILL WORTH IT :)

Agreed about Achtung Baby album ranking. Awesome album.

Julie G said...

I nap almost EVERY day. Seriously.

Diana said...

Nefertimmy...lol. I LOVE it!

I am a big believer in the afternoon nap, just had one today actually.

R said...

not a big fan of the nap! what is wrong with me?! :0) if i do take them, it's usually because i'm pregnant. but on those rare occasions that i do indulge in a little one, my favorite spot is on top of our obnoxiously throw-pillow-covered made bed. :0)
