Pillow Face

Slept through alarm.

FOrgot about dentist appointment for kids.

Why did "The First Appointment of The Day" sound good six months ago?

Hair is wonky.

Not yet awake.

Just found out that my make-up covers a multitude of sins wrinkles, but will not cover up pillow marks.

Bummer.

So I'll be back with a real post later...but until then:

Talk amongst yourselves....

Fluffy or flat pillows? Feather or synthetic?

Definitely fluffy. Flat? What's the point of the pillow?

Feathers poke through and feel scratchy.

I'm a little weird about my pillows. My family doesn't like to go pillow shopping with me because I have to try them out. I clear off a shelf and put my head on them to make sure they are fluffy without being too high. I need them to spring back when I fold them in half. It's a process. And a sickness.

I have a fake satin pillow case from a sheet set I bought for A (that's another story). I don't get pillow marks when I use it. I wanted a true silk pillow case....until I saw the price tag. Maybe I'll ask for one for Christmas.

I use feather pillow.. that way I can make it fluffy or flat depending on what I feel like! I totally have pillow marks on my face right now!

My husband bought this pillow (I can't remember the name of it) but it's like that mattress that holds the shape and is really firm. I LOVE it. The first pillow I haven't been able to squish flat with the way I wad them up. : )

I'm like Whimzie. I need resilient fluff without scratchiness. The smell is also very important to me. I cannot sleep on something that smells like a factory. Rick, however, likes really, really flat ones. He tends to take my old pillows when they lose their charm. I swear, the man may have had one of his pillows longer than me. It's not pretty.

I like the word wonk, sorry it's about your hair though.
I like fluffy not too hard pillows. I don't really know, I need new pillows though!

Fluffy, not too much though, fake pillows.

Because feathers make me sneeze.

I have a feather pillow that's perfectly squishy and my head sinks into it just so. I've had it for FOURTEEN YEARS and I can't imagine every owning another one.

In the meantime, Mr. CPQ has bought 547,296 pillows trying to find the perfect one. It's sad, really.

Fluffy goose down, but still firmish.

Kinda a firm non-flat thing going on with my pillow. I had to get it to avoid spending every one of my husband's paychecks at the chiropractor.

I am very OCD about my pillow. I use the latex foam kind. It breathes better than the memory foam kind. I liked mine so much that my husband got one just like it and sometimes they get mixed up but I can always tell I have the wrong one because I don't sleep well. He thinks I'm crazy.

I have a 50 pound Tempurpedic pillow (not the weird shape, but the normal pillow shape) that I've had for five years and I don't travel without it. I LOVE my pillow.

Laura said...

i am so the same way that first appt is great and then 6 months later, I am like WHY???

I have had pillow marks so bad before, I seriously could not believe it!!!! Thought that would never happen.....

I love all pillow, but mostly flatter ones with a bit of puff. I start off with 5 pillows at night and end up with one by morning pushing all the other ones away...

I need a very flat pillow...fluffy gives me a crick in my neck. And no feathers because I'm very allergic. (Remember that for when I come stay with you. Except, don't stress, because I usually bring my pillow with me. In my carry-on. I know you're super duper impressed!)

We're in pillow flux, actually. Best combo of firm-fluff would be nirvana. So far, our new pillows are a tad too firm. Perhaps they'll break in, soon.

So sorry about your pillow crease day.
