    I just noticed something about me, depending on the room i sleep on different sides of the bed. I normally sleep facing the door or a bathroom, i cant sleep facing the other way round. I cant sleep if teh tv is off, i cant sleep if the lights are completly off (no i am not scared of the dark). All of the above is tre unless the bed is stuck to a wall i will face the wall. I will always place a pellow beside me.

    Do you have any weird things you do when you sleep or do you just sleep at any given side?

    Nothing too bizarre to report on sleep wise, but I often get out of the wrong side of the bed on a morning. :mad:

    I accidentally my whole location.
    The middle usually since I'm often the only one in it, I tend to lean a bit towards the right though when I wake up. When I'm not alone I either take the right or the left depending on what the other party prefers, I honestly have no preference.

    I always sleep on the right of the bed and sleep on my right if I am sleeping on my own. If 'she' is in the bed as well, then I sleep on the left (is that too much information?) of the bed, but still sleep on my right side. But all the lights should be off for a proper night's sleep. And the radio (BBC Radio4) is always on regardless.

    As for any weird things that I might do in bed (where toy parrots and inflatable tortoises might be part of the deal? ---- well, that'll have to wait for another thread). :confused:

    And as for actually getting to sleep - excuse me but ---zzzzzzzzzzz :)

    i think the only reason I pick the left side is because it is closer to the door... less likely to disturb wife at night

    On the top side. Well, usually. I've been known to sleep on the the bottom side during thunderstorms...

    In the middle. It's my bed, dagnabbit! (ok, it's a twin bed)

    when I sleep in a larger bed, I'm usually on the right. The night stand is there, so I can put my contacts on it and such.

    I've been told I have jimmy legs and that I kick in my sleep. *shrug*

    Every night I run madly into my bedroom, slip on a banana peel, hit my head on a bed post and pass out on bed. I find I usually end up on the left side of my bed because it's closer to the door but sometimes I get rolled onto the right because I have landed on my girlfriend.

    One of these days I'll remember to throw out that banana peel.

    A geographical oddity
    For some reason, I'm usually the closest to the door and furthest from the alarm clock. In our last apartment, that was the right (facing the bed). When we moved apartments - the same layout, as we only moved b/c the smoke from our neighbor's apartment was trespassing and violating our right of quiet enjoyment - I switched sides. The only time that isn't true is when we visit my parents. There, I sleep furthest from the door and nearest the alarm clock.

    my bed is sandwiched between three walls, the only open side is the foot of the bed. it's also a somewhat large bed (full, large for me anyway.. i used to have a double), but i find myself waking up pressed up against the wall.

    what can i say, i guess i just like the feeling of having something up against me... :D

    That happens to me sometimes, too!
    If I'm crashed at a friend's house and they let me share their bed, they usually end up punching me in the stomach so I get away from them.

    I sleep on my side of the bed. My wife pretty much kicks me around until I'm further on my side, if that's at all possible. When she's traveling for work, I sleep in the middle with my three cats all around me.

    Well, I don't think I sleep too strangely.

    Because my bed is rammed directly against the side of my room, I use it as part of my sleeping surface. I'll push against the wall so that about 2 3/4'' of space is in between the bed frame and the wall. Then, I'll push the mattress so that about 2-3 inches of space is added. I'll lay on my right hip in this little crevasse, my cheek and right forearm plastered against the wall. My feet are dangled off the opposite side of the bed at roughly a 130 degree angle from my thighs. My left arm is curled covering my heart, with the left palm touching the icy cold drywall. My upper body is supported by a loose pyramid of pillows that raises my shoulders above the ground. My head lies flat on top of the pyramid. As far as blankets go, I have a fleece one that's wrapped around everything below my navel, then traveling upward and over me to (theorietically) shield everything but my right cheek against the wall. I then have one of my mom's quilts that she made for me draped over the other half of my body, also scrunched under my left knee and shoulder. I also have a bedsheet that goes from underneath my legs to over my entire head region. I have a pillow between my knees, too.

    Time to catch some sleep, sorry for the foggy and confusing post. It’s almost midnight, what can I say? :D

    Eh, I tend to face the wall when I sleep (the bed is pressed up in a corner), I'm usually not even on my pillow.:p

    You have 3 walls surrounding your bed? Are you in a closet or something? Not talking about sexuality or anything......just askin'.

    I sleep on the side which shows me the most love that night. Sometimes I won't be able to sleep on either side of the bed.

    Home: The middle (I miss my queen bed)

    College: Near the wall. I keep my room really warm and the wall is super cold, so its a good mixture (This bed is a twin, it sucks)

    diagonally. unless I'm not on my own. and only on my sides, I can't sleep on my back or on my front.

    Gone but not forgotten.
    That's what I was thinking--the top side. Also, it's a single Japanese futon, so there isn't a whole lot of extra room, i.e. no left or right side.

    However, I always wake up on my right side. Something to do with the heart being on the left side and not needing things pressing on it, perhaps?

    I sleep on the side farthest from the bathroom. Because my wife wants the side closest to the bathroom.
