A "Guy's Bed"

I just realized that I have been sleeping in a "guy's bed" for the past few years of my life.

First, let me explain what I mean by "guy's bed."

des's definitions (with ideas taken from a post by my bloggy buddy, SO@24)

guy's bed: a bed that is functional. Most likely has a maximum of one pillow -- despite it being larger than a twin or single size bed. The thread count is most likely at a minimum -- whatever was on sale at Zellers or Wal-Mart at the big back to school sale.

girl's bed: a bed that is not only functional, but also comfortable and pretty. There are at least 2 pillows and probably a couple more "throw pillows", at least one (cute and furry) teddy bear, sheets are soft and silky -- at least 800 - 1000 thread count. The comforter probably comes in a matching set to the pillows and sheets. Not only is it a place to catch some zzz's, but its also a little slice of heaven.

So, now that I am a young, working professional. I am ready to buy my first piece of furniture -- which, for your information, is going to be a bed. I love my sleep, so this is going to take some research and investigation. I am determined to sleep in a "girl's bed", by the time I move into my new apartment in October. With my many soft and comfy pillows and matching sheet sets.

Ikea. Here I come. We're going to be seeing a lot of each other this summer. :)

Thanks, Katelin.

I think I need more soft pillows. I only have one right now, and it's not as soft as I would like it.

I know - you're totally right! That's a great post from So@24, though. I really like his style. You'd think he would have gotten some by now with all the chicks posting on his blog....hmmm.

Yea, I really like reading his posts. That post made me think about my own "guy bed."

He seems like a really sweet guy, I guess he's just looking for the right girl. :) He did say he was picky, right?

What the hell is a thread count...

Welcome, SO@24.

And that, my friend, is exactly why you're still sleeping in a "guy's bed." Google it :)
