well. i recently discovered the allure of pillows. my Mom has a "couch" pillow at the back for support when she reads in bed (which is her book every night and the newspaper in the morning). in front of that, she has that pillow in the beigey pillowcase, one that she doesn't use for sleeping, but again for back support. then in front is her feather pillow that she sleeps with. (sometimes i get a corner of it and put my head on it too!) anyway, i discovered that when she leaves, she sort of piles them up so they create a very, very nice spot to recline. the last couple of days i have spent all day there. she was pretty annoyed that i didn't even run down to say hello when she got home from work 'cause i was so involved in the pillows. so, i have yet another nickname - "Pillow Poobah". i asked the Dad what that meant 'cause it's a strange word. he said it's like a Sultan. i didn't know what that meant either. so i asked Casey. even tho' she's poopy a lot, she knows stuff and said it's like Royalty that gets waited on, and that kinda sounds like me, so i guess i'll accept this new name. but i'm tellin' you, if you can score a feather pillow, go for it!
