You know, I have to agree with Matte Stephens on this one--the above painting is my idea of camping, too.
Of the underrated pleasures of life, few can argue that there is anything better than the feeling of waking up after a good night's sleep. You wake easily, you feel refreshed/energized and you are ready to face whatever it is that you've got to put up with for the next sixteen hours or so.
But--as we all know--sometimes a good night's sleep is not so easy to attain. Sometimes this is because of things that are out of our control (dog in the neighborhood that won't stop barking, a block party taking place a block away, a night train rumbling through a mere forty feet from your bedroom, etc.) but most of the time, it's something we can do something about. Like, for instance, maybe we just need to make to make the room a little darker, which would be why we have things like sleep masks.
And just because I believe deeply in the necessity of a good night's sleep, here's a selection of sleep masks for you to consider.
For those of you who read/watched Coraline and weren't completely creeped out by the Other Mother, perhaps I could interest you in a button-eyed sleep mask.
However, I take no responsibility for whether it or not it creeps out anyone else, so don't even to try to blame that on me.
...As my case for Owls Being Ubiquitous continues, I continue to keep racking up evidence. This sleep mask is just The People's Exhibit # Ninety-Eleven Kerbillion.
Now these next two sleep masks are made by Jennicakes, but I think they do a pretty good job of illustrating the two extremes of How People Request Peace And Quiet.
You've got the polite method...
...and you've got the, um, more direct approach. But either way, I think either one would be highly beneficial towards getting people to let you sleep.
And just because nothing caps off a good night's rest like a yummy breakfast, here's a sleep mask with a smiley bacon and eggs design:
And on that note, see you Wednesday!
