Happy National Sleep Awareness Week

by Maria Koropecky, Homespunspa owner

Did you know that March 7 to March 13, 2011 is National Sleep Awareness Week in Canada? It ties in with the “Spring Forward, Fall Back” schedule and has been designed to remind people about the importance of consistently getting a good night’s sleep.

If you haven’t noticed already, I’m passionate about the art of sleeping. In keeping with the Irish Proverb,  “A good laugh and a long sleep are the best cures in the doctor’s book” and to honour National Sleep Awareness Week, I’ve collected a few humourous quotes on the topic. I hope you enjoy them.

"Now go to sleep, Kevin or once again I'll have to knock three times and summon the Floating Head of Death." — Gary Larsen, The Far Side.“All I do is eat and sleep. Eat and sleep. Eat and sleep. There must be more to a cat’s life than that. But I hope not. — Garfield, Infamous cartoon cat, created by Jim Davis

“If people were meant to pop out of bed, we’d all sleep in toasters.”  — Jim Davis

“When I woke up this morning my girlfriend asked me, “Did you sleep good?” I said “No, I made a few mistakes.” — Steven Wright

“Last night I dreamed I ate a ten-pound marshmallow, and when I woke up the pillow was gone.” — Tommy Cooper

“Now go to sleep, Kevin or once again I’ll have to knock three times and summon the Floating Head of Death.” — Gary Larsen, The Far Side.

“People who snore always fall asleep first.”  — Author Unknown

“The amount of sleep required by the average person is five minutes more.”  — Wilson Mizener

“No wonder Sleeping Beauty looked so good…she took long naps, never got old, and didn’t have to do anything but snore to get her Prince Charming.” — Olive Green

“There was never a child so lovely but his mother was glad to get him to sleep.” — Ralph Waldo Emerson

“We sleep in separate rooms, we have dinner apart, we take separate vacations – we’re doing everything we can to keep our marriage together.” — Rodney Dangerfield

“Some people talk in their sleep. Lecturers talk while other people sleep.” — Albert Camus

“Laugh and the world laughs with you, snore and you sleep alone.” — Anthony Burgess

“Without enough sleep, we all become tall two-year-olds.”  — JoJo Jensen

“There is nowhere in the world where sleep is so deep as in the libraries of the House of Commons.” — Henry “Chips” Channon

“Next time you see someone sleeping, make believe you’re in a science fiction movie. And whisper, ‘The creature is regenerating itself.” — George Carlin
