Hard Pillows

I am talking to my friend about snoring.  He said that he has been snoring and wants to see if there is anything he can do to stop it.  I don’t have ay idea how any of that works so I told him he should probably talk to his doctor or something.  He sent me a link to some sites that are supposed to talk about it and everything but I didn’t really have much idea about what I was reading.  The other thing is that I guess his girlfriend has been complaining that he snores.  Heh, she says that she can’t sleep when he is snoring and she said he told her that she was welcome to sleep on the couch.  I laughed.  Even though it wasn’t really something I would want to have to experience, it was still funny because she is the one that told me it and it was just funny.  So he told me that I should read this review and see what I thought about some of the things it talked about.  I know there are like those mouth guards and there are also certain ways you can lay that are supposed to make you snore less.  I don’t really think I should tell him what to do though since it’s not really any area that I am familiar with.

I know that I have heard him snore and it didn’t really bother me because it was a pretty quiet snore, not like some that I’ve heard.  But if it’s going to be an issue then I definitely thing he should see if he can get it taken care of or something.  I am also going to see if there is another kind of pillow he can use because one of the things we were talking about was that his pillows suck.  I mean ok, I was at his place and we were watching a movie and I decided to sleep over there because I didn’t feel like going back home and he gave me this pillow to use and it was really uncomfortable.  He said that’s the kind of pillow he always uses but I don’t know what is going on because it was just like uncomfortable and I couldn’t get it to feel right no matter how I positioned it.  So I think that maybe he is just using pillows that are the wrong shape and he should get some new ones.  I don’t know if that’s what’s causing it but she should get new pillows anyway because his are really pretty poor.

Learning To Surf Huge Waves (Or Small Ones)

I am a fan of roller blading.  Some people think that’s weird because it’s not really that popular but I enjoy it.  I’ve got a few pairs of blades and I like to blade around the neighborhood.  I’ll see people looking at me but I don’t really get bothered by it because at least I’m doing something that I find enjoyable.  I also like doing tricks and stuff but I’m not really that good.  I can do some jumps but that’s about it.  I have seen that there are a few ramps and stuff around here and I will check them out when I am feeling active and adventurous but usually I just stay around town on normal roads.  The other thing that I have been wanting to try is surf lessons.  Unlike with blading, surfing doesn’t seem like something that you can just buy the stuff yourself and then go to it.  Well, maybe, but I wouldn’t want to do it that way.  Then again, I learned to skate when I was with some people who were already going skating so maybe I did kind of learn from people.  But when it comes to riding waves I think I would prefer to have a teaching atmosphere.

So the thing I have to decide is where I want to learn.  There are a few places I have seen around here and there is also a surf camp Costa Rica that I found that looked pretty nice.  The thing I need to find out, though, is what you need to do to prepare.  Maybe you just show up with yourself or maybe you need to do something beforehand.  That can probably be answered with an email so it’s going to also be a way to see how the customer service is.  Another thing I want to see is if I can check out a few of the places before I decide.  Obviously most of them have websites but I still think that looking online can give you some good insight into what kind of experience they have.  The place that I choose will probably be the one that I think looks the best so I’m going to start looking at some of the ones I’ve seen.  After that it’s going to just be a matter of getting out there and learning to catch some gnarly waves!  Well, there’s probably other stuff involved, but that’s the general concept.
