What is your weirdest habits in bed?

My weirdest habit in bed is that I cannot deal with the blanket being on upside own or the wrong way up. 

Morning or night person? 

I’m a night person. Sometimes I wake up angry! I generally go to sleep around 11 and wake up at 8, if I don’t have work. 

If you could invite 5 people to sit on your bed (dead or alive) who would they be? 

Keanu Reeves - Nai Palm (from Hiyatus Koyote) - Deborah King (Shaman master) - A non-hostile alien - my boyfriend

What do you wear to bed? 

Undies. Sometimes a t-shirt, sometimes just nakey 

What keeps you up at night? 

Past or future social interactions keep me up at night. Often the few nights before one of my exhibitions I find it hard to get to sleep. 

Favourite sleeping position? 

I like to lie almost on my tummy on my left side, with my right leg on a right angle, heel touching the knee of the left leg (if that makes sense) 

Favourite music to listen to in bed? 

Indian meditation music 

Do you spring out of bed or do you hit the snooze button? 

I usually press snooze about 3 times before I get out of bed if I’m going to work. I used to wake up an hour and a half early so I could keep pressing snooze for longer. 

Any other random thoughts? 

Recently I’ve turned my bedroom into a sacred space, where sometimes at night I light candles and burn incense, and lie in bed with my boyfriend telling him we are the king and queen of Egypt in our royal temple. This is partially influenced by tantra, but formed from my own desire to treat myself as a precious and majestic being.
