Sheesh!

Shortly after 4:00, the deliverers came with my new bed. They set it up in my room, and... it was too thick.

See, at the store, the salesman showed us the Tempur-Pedic beds, and there was one with a thick mattress (15") and one with a thin mattress (about 8"). When I sat up on the thick mattress, my feet didn't touch the floor, so I opted for the thin mattress.

But now they've delivered the wrong one and my feet don't touch the floor and I can tell I'm not going to be able to see the clock on my bedtable when I'm lying down! I gotta call Mattress Firm and get this straightened out.

I'll bet those damn deliverers put a pea under this thing, too. I HATE it when they do that!

How will this affect you seeing "Surf's Up?"

I'm gonna call the mattress store tomorrow and tell them I want it dealt with on Thursday. Then I'm gonna go see "Surf's Up". Hopefully comical surfing penguins will take my mind off the annoying 15 inches that is the current thickness of my bed. Actually, 8 of those inches I don't mind; it's the other 7 that are the problem.

You need to have your legs lengthened so your feet will reach the floor. Also, you can have a digital clock implanted inside your eyelids so you always know what time it is, even when you're sleeping.

Same thing happened to Karen and I when we bought a new bed last year. After they came back and exchanged the first (wrong) mattress set we ended up with a different mattress than we'd picked originally. Though it was a more expensive model so we accepted the compromise. ;)

My new mattress is also thicker than what we were using before. And I also now have a hard time seeing the alarm clock. But I chalk it up to a few things: firstly, as explained earlier, our old bed wasn't that good quality, secondly with the mattress we also bought an actual bed frame (which we didn't have before, just a wire frame for the boxspring to rest on), thirdly with the frame and mattress I got a proper nightstand (the old one was just a TV stand), the old "nightstand" I suspect was taller than a nightstand should be, so this brings it down to the height it should have been all along, but now I have to get used to it. (This nightstand goes with the frame, so it's probably the ideal height.)

I can't see any clock when on any bed, with my eyesight. I have to pick up the clock and hold it up to my face if I want to know what time it is (which I usually don't; I'm asleep, dammit!).

And c'mon, now, KT... would you rather they had pea'd ON the bed?
