    An Update

    Well, the Liquid Nails didn't work since the air was escaping so it just bubbled up. I tried duct tape and packing tape. This slowed down the air escaping slightly but not totally.

    I spent Saturday night sleeping for an hour and then having to haul my ass off the floor and put more air in. I was not going to give in and sleep with Mr. Sign again. He was not really pleased since I had to turn on the light every time. I slept a total of three hours.

    Sunday I decided to try a bicycle tire patch. I patched it in the morning and let it set all day. Last night I got into the bed and snuggled down into the comfort of all the down on my bed. Ah, it's so warm and toasty. Just as I was drifting off I heard the distinct sound of escaping air (for once it wasn't Mr. Sign). The patch didn't hold.

    I had to break down and sleep with Mr. Sign. I spent another night clinging to the edge of the bed with something poking me in my backside. I tried the gentle but firm kick to the leg but this only seemed to encourage him to move closer, reminding him that I was there.

    I had even gone so far as to dehydrate myself so that I wouldn't have to get up five times to go to the bathroom. I was aware of the fact that I might have to sleep with him and he gets mad when I have to get up. Instead, he was the one who drank like a camel and had to relieve himself four times throughout the night. He even got up once to drink more damn water!

    I'll be spending the day looking for new sleeping arrangements.

    P.S. Suze, your comment made me snort when I read it!

    ooh!! what about that leak spray they're always advertising on late-night TV? the one perfect for RVs, shutters, boats, etc.?

    otherwise, I guess you gotta find a new and better air mattress.

    that one's supposed to be good ... and it's pretty high too.

    good luck *smooches*

    sorry to hear about your disrupted sleep arrangements....aw hope it gets corrected.

    Alot of people don't realize there is a big difference between not sleeping together and not having sex.
    It's possible to use the bed when you aren't sleeping...:)

    Be careful with that nail stuff. I knew a woman who did that acrylic stuff and wore her nails really long--but it kept lifting and she caught some sort of bacteria or mold in there and it got infected. She had to have part of her finger removed. UGH! Just be careful.

    Also, whenever my partner wants a little sumptin' sumptin' when we're in bed, I don't feel anything 'poking me', but I do feel two huge balloons on my back. It's still unnerving when 'you have a headache...' ;)

    Is it wrong for me to rub cheese on my taint after reading this?

    Suze said...

    Oh Jenn, I hope you have managed to find something else to sleep on.

    I'm evil if I don't get proper sleep. Alex has to go and hide away for the rest of the day.

    Perhaps you could persuade Mr Sign to give up his bed. I know I was only joking. LOL.

    SignGurl said...

    DZER~Thanks for the head up. I gotta get some sleep.

    TC~It's more fun when you get to "visit".

    Deb~It's not glue for fingernails, haha. It's a construction adhesive called liquid nails. I wouldn't really know about the two big ballons. That would be different.

    Danny~Mmmmm....cheese and taint...hungry now.

    Suze~I'm evil like that too. I could use a good full night of sleep.

    Nonny said...

    That shit, coming out your twat, is as good as any super glue. Give it a shot, I dare you. And by the sounds of it, your husband has an enlarging prostate and needs to get that looked at ASAP ;)

    cutie said...

    Sweetie, just break down and buy a new bed. Really. Sanity is worth it!

    C.

    oh lord, GOOD LUCK.

    Brad got locked up.

    Funny story, but there's no time for that.

    Run over to Blogjail and leave him some heartfelt comments. The way I see it, if we all express what an asset Brad is to the Blogosphere, then the jailers might feel sorry and let him out!

    I've patched some air-matresses before, but the problem now may be that you have TOO MUCH shit on the hole. Not to mention you've got to the the patch all the way down in the crack (he he crack).

    you might need to let the stuff set up for 24 hours....air pressure witha a grown human on top of it is a LOT of force.

    I currently have 2 beds I'm trying to get rid of. Giving them away. Unfortunately, they're more for kids than grown ups. One's a bunk top/futon bottom; the other's a regular futon. You can borrow them if like. But I don't want them back!

    Barney said...

    Have a word with your local waterbed dealers Jenn, im sure they could sell you sumn to fix it :-)

    crabcake said...

    AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH HA HA HA HA HA! I know! I shouldn't laugh but I can't help it. Tell ya what's worse than the man butt in the middle of the bed is the pointy elbow in the back. And gas! Don't even get me started. I darn near suffocated myself in my own pillow the other night trying to get away from the huge green cloud that was crawling up my nose.

    But I'm not sleepin on any air mattres. They get cold! Doesn't yours get cold?

    I know something that will make you smile. Check out the hottie on our site. He's quite yummy!

    Who rubs cheese on their taint?

    cadbury_vw said...

    i hope the arrangements allow some very soon

    Big Pissy said...

    separate rooms! that's what we do! ;-)

    Chrissie said...

    I feel like a perv here *L* I just clicked on Joe cuz he is so cute!... hes a baby.. lol

    On the air mattress... i am so friggin impressed you had it for 6 years!! My daughters BF bought one for while he was here and I think it lasted him about 4 months lol... it was about 60 bucks... we do have animals though... I think a cat may have been the problem lol

    Didja find one today? ;) Or is it another night from hell?

    Lance said...

    Wow, I need to catch up on what is going on

    A brief interruption of today's program.

    okay, yall, I'm generally too shy to drum up business this way (seriously, I am), but I need some damn PASSENGERS for the Toxic Bullette. I think I have a full crew, now, but I'm sadly lacking in other areas. If it helps, the ship is child-free, spouse-free and just plain free-for-all. Please send "passengers" my way. Just reply to the appropriate post, tell me a little about yourself (like, if you're naughty or nice and if there is something about you that is off-limits - so no one's feelings get hurt) and make sure I can link you. Send friends. God I sound so desparate. Kinda like when I had just gotten my braces and had that strange halo looking headgear thing and still hadn't grown into my "big hair" that all southern women are required to wear - and was looking for a date to the 7th grade dance. I'm pathetic [and shit like that].

    Sorry to hear about the continueing escape, As the Gas Escapes. Regardless if it is your bead or his, the title still applies.

    You know if you get a cheap enough mattress you can get two of them and be higher off the ground. Make sure you put something warm between you and the bed especially if you are closer to the ground. It made all the difference when I tent camp.

    Keep us posted on the new bed!
