— One pillow or two : Two, and they must be extra extra extra firm. I’m more comforable on rolled up pair of bluejeans than a soft ass pillow. Same with my bed. I cannot sleep on a soft bed, my back kills me the next morning (former girlfriends have thought me odd for sleeping on the floor)

5 fave. things to do on a snowy day
I’ve seen snow once here in Oregon when Christine took me up into the moutains. Then I loved playing in the snow with her and her kid (snowball fight!), and also going out into the forest and listening to the silence of it all. I’d like to make a snowman, and I remember mom making snow icecream as a kid. Of course, pulling each other on a metal disk behind the three-wheeler in the pasture ROCKED!
