It started when my friend this year showed me this site that sold pillows that looked like sushi. (www.originalsushipillow.com)
Here are some examples.


And then I realized how awesome one of the pillows my roommate Ashley had was. I secretly took it with me to bed at night.
Um...that sounds dirty but it's true. I wish I had a picture of it. But it's a white pillow, with a slight corduoroy feel to it, with glittery silver stars on it. It's got just the right 'oomph' a pillow should have. Just a standard good pillow.
She's also got this huge orange and white stripped pillow too. It reminds me of a peach slice.

A few nights ago, I was at a friend's house and she took out this awesome huge pink pillow that said 'Nautica' on it.
That was clearly a standard good pillow as well. More points cause it was just huge. And pink.

Anyways so I have this sudden and growing interest in pillows.
Here are a few I found online.

The binary code pillow (prettttttyyyyy geeky but kinda cool)

Pillows that look like breakfast foods (which is possibly on my top 5 favourite types of food, therefore pillows that look like something on my top 5 favourite foods are just awesome)

Pebble Pillows I think this is an ingenious idea and if I ever have many children and a lot of money I will definitely invest in buying hundreds of these. For tables, for sleeping, for everything.

And last but not least The boyfriend's arm pillow
Pretty sweet for those lonely nights till you're married, except for me. I have Ashley's pillow.

I found something else online while searching for cool pillows.
It was The Pillow Fight Club
The website is www.pillowfightclub.org
They schedule pillow fights around the US I think. Maybe their leader will start one in Canada..(hehe).
They have rules too. I think they're cute.

1. You do tell everyone about PillowFight Club.
2. You do tell everyone about PillowFight Club.
3. If someone whines or has no pillow, you cannot hit them.
4. Everyone joins in the fight.
5. The one fight starts at the designated time - No earlier
6. No tar, no heavy things in pillows.
7. PillowFights will go on until they're done.
8. If this is your first night at PillowFight Club, you have to get feathered.

Here's the pic from the website:

This reminds me of the time in first year when we had a massive pillow fight between all the Science Faculties (Med Sci, Health Sci, Social Sci). We were doing it to hopefully win the World Record for it. I'm not sure if we did, but it was so fun! I was in a totally different area when it was over.

I think it would be pretty cool if I started to make my own pillows.
Better put that up on my 49 things to do in life list!

One of those "I'm Alone" times

These times come to me now and then.
With everything "going for me" in my life, suddenly it all stops and nothing seems to matter anymore.

My emotions, my thoughts, everything that I go through.
I don't want to share them with anybody because they won't care as much as I want them too.
It's so stupid, but I always do stupid things.

He always seems to let me stay in these kinds of moments just as much as I need to.
Then I brush myself off and go at life again.
It's as if I am playing hide and seek by myself and I have hid in a closet.
But then dinner time comes along and my mom is calling out my name, so I have to open the closet door and step into the light. (haha so cheesy).

It's good. I'll let myself wallow and think this one out.
