Pillow talk

John likes to make fun of me for having a pillow that I don’t like to leave home without. It’s like the security blanket that every has as a child – it’s something that just makes wherever I’m at feel more homey.

Everyone has a favorite pillow, even Paris Hilton! Unlike Paris though, I’ve boarded an airplane without my pillow… after John told me that I wasn’t allowed to bring it with me.

I usually sleep with four to six pillows, two of them are hypoallergenic pillows that are nice. But nothing compares to my favorite purple pillow. It’s the only one I actually sleep on out of my collection of pillows. It’s really soft and squishy – perfectly broken in. It’s the perfect size for putting under my neck when I’m reading, or cuddling up in bed with for a nap.

I don’t like fancy pillows, unless you consider my hypoallergenic pillows fancy. Down pillows never seem to feel right, and feather pillows make my allergies go crazy.

What is your favorite pillow? Why is it your favorite?


Sarah sat in the aisle seat, petrified of the upcoming flight. A fifteen minute delay was the beginning of her first voyage, not a good start. A large rain storm with potential hail in Boston was delaying them, while a continuous mist of rain fell at the Chicago airport.

“Everything is going to be fine, calm down.”

Sarah glanced over at her friend and flying buddy. ”Everything is going to be fine,” says the girl whose last flight was canceled because of mechanical failure, she thought, but managed a nod and a smile. The last thing they needed was for security to pull them off of the plane because she was having a panic attack.



My beloved AIM Triton told me that I had to upgrade for “security reasons”. I merely though it was a new version of Triton I was installing – WRONG. They’ve decided to force everyone to convert over to AIM 6.5, and I’m not happy.

I’ve added, removed, installed, and uninstalled nearly every instant messaging program in the last forty-eight hours trying to find something that I’m happy with.
