I used to get up at precisely 5:27. Don't ask why, I don't know.

When my mom and I were at my sister's to help with her kids after she had their third baby, the older two always got up at some time between 6:45 and 7:30, usually about 7. When we came home, I woke up at 7 or 6:45 for like three months. It was crazy.

Does anybody else sleep in on the days they need to get up, and get up on days they can sleep in? I do that a LOT!!

Erm.....8 1/2? I think? Or maybe 9....but I might have gotten them wide. I do remember a great deal of tryings-on and debating. I'm finicky about my shoes. :D And they hurt my feet for the first three days, but then I got used to them. Still prefer boots, to be honest. ;)

Oh...sorry no. I'd drown in that size. I do wear my shoes tight though :anxious: .

Another thing I do is turn my ceiling fan at night before burrowing under my blankets :inlove: . So cozy.

I do that, too, even in summer! I turn my fan on to the highest setting and burrow under a thick comforter. I've read that the human body actually does physiologically tend toward wanting to be fully covered while sleeping, even in hot weather.

For the longest time I thought I was crazy for doing that all year round, turning the fan on the highest setting and burrowing under my big, fluffy comforter. Although it does kind of make me regret it in the morning, when I have to make the tread across the frozen tundra of my room to turn the fan off in the morning :P But oh well, the sacrifices one has to make....

I set my alarm for 30 min. before I need to wake up so that I wake up and cuddle with my cat and my pillow until I need to get out of bed :inlove: so I can wake up slowly and think of what I need to do although it is hard out of bed once I think of all the school I got behind on and remember I have to do that :( but at lest I get to do it in my bed \:D/

Are you saying I have big feet? O.o :P

I turn on my fan whenever I want to layer the room in a thin film of dust. :D

I used to turn the radio on at bedtime and let the voices lull me to sleep. I still consider it soothing, but my roomies do NOT agree. *shrugs* :D

When I was little(I was really spoiled, by the way), I COULD NOT go to sleep without this one CD on. I finally got over that once we went to Israel for the second time in 2011.

Wait, so what do you use for covers then, Blitz?

I have this lovely large, fuzzy-wuzzy Batman blankie. I sleep under it every night. Sometimes only that. It's like being wrapped in a hug. :D

I sleep in my retro 80's aesthetic fleece blanket. I love it.

Yes we have! You can talk to me about it on my Q & A...

Okay more Israel stuff(oh, you in charge of this board you may remove this if you need to), when we were there, we had to get up at, prepare yourself, 3:30 am! We were supposed to be the road by six (am), and we usually made it! \:D/

Comforters are vastly different from covers.

So the comforter is on top of the covers, but she doesn't let you use it while sleeping? :? :D

I have this thing where I'll do one lip one color and the other lip another color. I can get really great Padme Amidala lips with a deep red and some cream-colored matte. :D

My mom is considered a "hippie mom"(according to my brother). I think if you opened my pantry and compared it with a common American pantry, you would faint at the difference. Same for our fridge!!

My favorite veggie is either green beans or Brussels sprouts.
