are you a bed person?

Happy Easter, people. If you’re avoiding family and creeping on the Internet, your Easter is about to get a lot better because the hilarious Jillian Lorraine wants to talk about being a bed person today. I’m totally a bed person.

are you a bed person?

There are many kinds of people in this world. Introverts and extroverts. Animals lovers and those who seek therapy after touching a dog’s collar. Bed people and non-bed people.

In general, I fall into the categories of introvert, therapy, and bed people.

Also, yes, “bed people” is a term I just came up with. What are we thinking of it?


I absolutely adore my bed, so much so that while some people name their cars, my trusty old Corolla remains nameless and my bed goes by “The Marshmallow.”

Isn’t she lovely?

The Marshmallow is the first bed that was ever truly “mine.” Before she came into my life I’d had a series of beds, but none I had ever picked out, customized, and generally loved like I love The Marshmallow. I had my growing up bed. I had my college dorm beds (read: pain machines of death). I’ve also had random apartment beds (always frightening, best not to think about those too long).

But The Marshmallow was the first time in my adult life where I needed to buy a bed.

And so I went for the dream.

The marshmallow fluff, whipped topping plus 11 pillows sort of dream. It worked.

And in the process I became a bed person.

A bed person is someone who prefers to do everything in their bed. Eat, sleep, read, write, generally conquer the world—all of these things are best accomplished from the safety and comfort of The Marshmallow.

At least that’s what a bed person would tell you.

And I’m a bed person.

A few months ago, my friend eagerly forwarded me this article about how NASA was paying people $18,000 to live in their beds for 70 days and my initial thought was “DREAM JOB. SIGN ME UP. NO ONE IS MORE QUALIFIED.” Then, of course, I read about it and some of the side effects and requirements, and like most dreams, that one had to die a bitter death with tears.

But for a minute, I thought this bed person thing could really mean something here. Get my life somewhere, if you know what I mean.

About this point in the post you’re probably thinking I’m the laziest, unhealthiest person to ever live. And the truth is, maybe sometimes I can be a bit lazy, but I’m actually a fairly productive individual. I’m finishing up my MFA in Writing for Screen and Television. (So look! I can complete degrees that hold no bearing in the real world!) I have two jobs. I like to go on walks. Sometimes I even socialize like a good 20-something in LA does.

    I loved this — especially because I am totally a bed person (who is also getting a master’s degree. Must be a thing). And it’s so funny because you and I must have the same bed frame at least, if that’s your bed in the picture. Haha. Awesome!

  • Nadya’s Side Of The Road

    I am a total introvert, so yes I am a bed person, too! : )

  • TheMarriedWriter

    I love my bed! I look forward to sleeping every night just to get in it.

  • Audrey | Brunch at Audrey’s

    I’m definitely a bed person! If I could, I would spend days and days in bed! In fact, I’m in bed right now :P

  • Bailie @ The Hemborg Wife

    I am totally a bed person too, we have a king size bed and I love it since I am so short I can fit any direction without my feet hanigng off!

  • Esther

    I’m a snooze person. Both the bed and the couch have a name (ha!) and I snooze on both. And my car is called ‘The Tomato’, thank you very much :-)

  • jackie jade

    i’m laying on our guest room bed right now, with my laptop checking out blogs. so even though it’s not a super comfy bed – way better than an uncomfy desk!

  • Jess Boyd

    Of course I’m laying in bed while reading this. And I have to agree, I’m a total bed person. Even though I have a perfectly nice desk and chair, I basically just use it as a place to set things. I’m in love with the marshmallow and if you’re going to spend all your time in one place, you better make sure it is perfect and just to your liking.

    Happy Easter! Love that pillow!!

  • Jessa Olson

    I am a bed person too!! I love our bed.. only wish I could have more pillows, but the hubs HATES a lot of pillows. Gotta pick my fights,right?

  • David

    There are plenty of times when I lie down in bed only because it’s the most comfortable place in the house. I’m definitely a bed person.

  • Kelly

    I am SUCH a bed person!

  • Molly @ The Move to America

    I am a bit of a bed person, my issue (especially as I get older) is not wanting to leave it in the morning. It is fast becoming harder and harder … ! :-)

  • Travelcraft Journal

    This makes so much more sense to me than those stuffy articles that are like “don’t work from bed.” Please. They don’t know me. And they obviously don’t know The Marshmallow.

  • Manda

    I am totally a bed person! I have a husband pillow (I still can’t get over how weird that name is) and a Build-a-Bear teddy bear that is super comfy and squishy. Best place in my apartment is in my bed, hands down.

  • Amy | Club Narwhal

    I am totally a bed person (and I’m glad a category exists for us:). The Marshmallow looks so cozy!

  • adventuresofalondonkiwi

    Ditto all of the above, especially with the cat on a Sunday!

  • oomph
