Fun fact: I’m narcoleptic. Okay, maybe not clinically speaking, but show me a pillow and I’ll show you a coma. I’m probably one of four people who has ever fallen asleep in Las Vegas… at a nightclub… with a giant costumed Elmo dancing right above her head. If I were to be a fairytale princess, I would undoubtedly be Sleeping Beauty. As a matter of fact, I should be much more beautiful due to the amount of beauty sleep I’ve amassed over the years. I once had a boyfriend who told me that he was comforted by how restfully I slept. He thought it meant I had a clear conscience. Ha. And while I’ve fallen asleep on dates forcing them to leave their phone numbers on tabloid covers and scraps of napkin, my narcolepsy has saved me from many a late night pizza delivery. So, my unpredictable sleep patterns aren’t all bad as long as you don’t mind my snoring.

Very cute article. I never cease being amazed at the fascinating pictures you can find and organize. Very cool.
I love your photo collection here. Sleep never looked so beautiful. 😉
I am a person with narcolepsy (clinically speaking) and I just wanted to share that narcolepsy’s sleepiness is generally misunderstood, people think narcolepsy is falling asleep while standing or talking, but its often much more subtle and less visible. I hope this isn’t too weird to comment with this info, but I didn’t think I had “narcolepsy” for years, until I learned about the real symptoms. I was shocked. Narcolepsy is also much more common than people realize, affecting 1 in 2,000 people (200,000 in the US).
Whether it’s narcolepsy or not, I think you might enjoy my quick fun award-winning memoir, “Wide Awake and Dreaming: A Memoir of Narcolepsy”. http://www.amazon.com/dp/0988314908/
Sending wakefulness and big smiles your way,
