Are You There Blog? It's Me CaraghThe LoveSac is a Little Old Place Where We Can Get Together (LoveSac, Baby)Caragh Poh

Ooh, baby, do you know what that’s worth?
Ooh, heaven is a place on Earth.

- Lead singer of The Go-Go’s, Belinda Carlisle, in her only hit song “Heaven is a Place on Earth” and/or me talking about mattresses.

My number one hobby mattresses. Some may walk by their local bakery with a wistful eye towards the bear claws. Others may slowly stroll along the sidewalk while window shopping at Neiman Marcus. I, on the other hand, sigh and look longingly into the windows of any and all Sleepy’s Mattresses.

I like them all. I like the firm innerspring mattresses that keep your back aligned, the plush foam ones that give way to your body’s curves. Even water beds occasionally serve their purpose, which I guess is to let you know what it feels like if you fall asleep on circa 2000 Marlon Brando’s stomach.

I dream of owning a Mattress Room. A room without flooring or furniture, just a mattress the entire size of the room and a large wall-mounted television screen. There will be no food, drink or hanky-panky allowed in Mattress Room. Do you know how hard it is to find extra sheets for a 20 foot wide mattress? Mattress Room is strictly for my three favorite pastimes: Sleeping, napping, and chilling.

Last night I stayed over a friend’s apartment and the only sleeping service promised to me was something called a LoveSac. Though I was hesitant about my upcoming sleepy time, the moment I plopped myself down I knew I had found the closest thing to Heaven I will ever experience. What appeared to be nothing more than an oversize bean bag chair turned out to be the best thing that has ever happened to my body. 80′s love song lyrics swirled in my head as I let waves of comfort-induced euphoria rake my body. As I watched the shadows of branches dance on the ceiling, a solitary tear came to my eye when I realized I finally knew what love was and that it was residing within a DuraFoam-filled piece of cloth and not, as I had previously expected, within a man who shared my interests and hobbies.

To own a LoveSac is my new life goal. I even have a week-long blogging series to go along with it; How LoveSacs Feel on Monday, How LoveSacs Feel on Tuesday, How… you get the picture.

Harriet Tubman had abolitionism, Louis and Clark had expeditions, Susan B. Anthony had the fight for dollar coins and women’s rights. I merely desire a new and alternative sleeping surface.

  7. I was highly happy to uncover this online site.I desired to thank you for this awesome read!! I surely relishing each and every smallish little bit of it and I’ve you bookmarked to check out new things you publish.

  8. Stackable boxes really are a must when moving house, irrespective of self-drive van hire or removal company lorry. Sturdy green, recyclable boxes that may be reused repeatedly are the most useful choice for frequent house moves and for long-term storage – regardless of where the home move takes place. There’s nothing more frustrating than having to reload many times, because the awkward manner in which things are packed prevent a fully loaded van making one tour and something tour only.

  9. A sensible way to spend less on fuel is with an electic bike. In case you are dreaming about buying one go to your most desired online search engine and take a peek.

  10. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It is a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, specially inside the realm of games, but I’m not certain I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a considerably much better choice in that case.

  11. Great product, awful company in terms of customer service and in terms of honoring commitments. I recommend looking them up on BBB before making a decision to buy from them, just so you know their complaint history: http://www.bbb.org/connecticut/business-reviews/furniture-retail/lovesac-alternative-furniture-in-stamford-ct-87015365/complaints

    • I’m not going to click on that link, but not because I don’t believe you. I just don’t WANT to believe you. Ignorance is bliss.

  12. I have a LoveSac! It’s pretty legit.

  13. i used to hook up with a guy in the dorms my freshman year JUST SO i could spend some qt with his lovesac. those lyrics are spot on, girl!!!

  14. that looks like it has got to be the most comfortable thing ever. i need to invest in one pronto!

  15. A LoveSac was the first piece of grown up furniture I invested it. I had to throw it out after 3 years of owning it, but it was totally my fault.

  16. Girl, you are my hero in this life. A mattress room has been one of my most talked about topics for like, the past ten years. WE MUST LIVE THE DREAM!!!
