I was down. I was depressed. I was lonely. At night I would sit alone, listening to the wind. Or watch an informercial for a product I didn’t need — with the TV sound off.
We’ve all been there. Some of us are there right now.
Thank you kind bloggers who “shared their bed” with me to ease my loneliness.
My father never spoke to me about marriage or sex, but he would always say “it is good to have someone to hold around in bed.” (he really said that — ask Sophia!)
This week is Rosh Hashana, the Jewish New Year. My New Year’s wish is that during this year, everyone I’ve met online who doesn’t have somebody should meet someone worthwhile to “hold around in bed.”
THEY SHARED THEIR BED WITH ME:
Caitlin’s bed is in New York.
Caitlin (of Caitlinator) has gone back to school, does not eat at McDonald’s, and loves her pet chicken.
Laurie’s bed is in Los Angeles.
Laurie (of Crazy Aunt Purl) is a popular knitting blogger who has inspired me to start making my own socks. She does not need an alarm clock to wake up in morning because her bright orange bedspread does that for her.
Dagny’s bed is in Berkeley, California.
Dagny (of Dagny’s Empire) is out dancing the night away so often that her cat spends more time on the bed than she does.
DAISEY MAE’S BED
Daisy Mae’s bed is in Indianapolis, Indiana.
Daisy Mae (of Daisy Mae was here…) is well-known for making beautiful blog templates. She is such a talented graphic artist, that she has made a cut-out of herself to fool her children while she blogs at Starbucks.
Felicity’s bed is in New York.
Felicity, of Zelos, is not a shy woman. In fact, she’s thinking of taking up pole dancing. For some reason, her bed intimidates me.
Heather’s bed is in Orange County, CA.
Heather works and takes care of her kids, and doesn’t have time to blog. Her bed reflects her “do it all” lifestyle — a little messy, but very homey.
Laura’s bed is in Los Angeles.
Laura is in the process of starting up her first blog. I’m guessing there were many sleepless nights in this bedroom with the crib right next to the bed!
Lizardek’s bed is in Sweden.
Lizardek (of Lizardek’s Obiter Dictum) works, has a family, and sings in a choir. Look at the exquisite European craftsmanship of her bed! (and no, she didn’t get it at IKEA).
Roberta’s bed is in New Jersey.
Roberta (of Roberta’s Voice) is the only blogger I know who is both Jewish and Wiccan. She’s also pretty funny. I’m still trying to decide if her bedspread looks more Jewish or Wiccan.
Sweet’s bed is in Washington D.C.
Sweet (of Sour N Sweet) co-blogs with Sour, but her bed is all hers. I love the relaxed, lived-in look, and the retro wood-grain wall, which reminds me of the time I slept in the basement of Rachel Kinder’s parent’s home in Merrick, Long Island.
Tara’s bed is in Iowa City, Iowa.
Tara (of Scruffylooking) is a mother and a lover of literature, and she lives in a city with a rich literary life. Her bed has an Asian, Zen-like feel to it, a perfect place to meditate or read Dicken’s Great Expectations.
MR. FABULOUS’S BED
Mr. Fabulous’s bed is in Gainesville, Florida.
Mr. Fabulous (of Pointless Drivel) is a brave man. Not only was he recently fired because of his blog, he is the only man MAN enough to send me a photo of his bed. Why do I have the feeling that Mr. Fabulous — and not Mrs. Fabulous — bought that dark blue comforter?
VISCOUNTESS OF FUNK’S BED
The Viscountess of Funk’s bed is in Seattle.
The Viscountess (of Postcards From Somewhere) is a mother, a lawyer, and a writer of great imagination. I also think her bed is large enough to fit my entire blogroll.
Deezee’s bed is in Venice, California.
Deezee (of Confessional Highway) is the coolest Mom ever. She just took her son to see his first rock concert — the Red Hot Chili Peppers! As you can see, Deezee is not afraid of showing herself in her bed, although she is clearly upstaged by her sleeping dog.
TWO ROADS’S BED
Two Roads’s bed is in Atlanta, Georgia.
Two Roads (of Lindbergh’s Crossing) is from Atlanta and has some “Scarlett O’hara” in her, which means she frankly gives a damn about having a very nice bed (I know it’s Rhett’s line, but I liked the way it sounded).
Mari’s bed is in the United Kingdom.
Maria (of Argentine Babe) is Argentine-born artist in the UK, who gets her best artistic ideas in bed while working with her assistant (shown).
Charming’s bed is in a Southern city.
Charming (of Charming but Single) is a Southerner who likes both her drinks and her boys tall, but her bed nice and soft.
