Apparently, Americans consume a whole bunch of it.

Hmm. That bed one makes me suspicious.

But! Still more: "Adolescents and adults now spend, on average, more than 64 days a year watching television, 41 days listening to the radio and a little over a week using the Internet. Among adults, 97 million Internet users sought news online last year, 92 million bought a product, 91 million made a travel reservation, 16 million used a social or professional networking site and 13 million created a blog."

Hey, y'all we're in good company! Us and about 13 million other people are out there blogging away for the first time in their lives....

Whew. What a semester! Better grab some bottled water and go find a television to recover--but watch out for any bicycles and wheelchairs on the way, and (above all) go nowhere near your bed!

Advice appreciated,

Well, at least take some

Well, at least take some bottled water with ;)

No, seriously, I hope you (and everyone else) enjoy a hard-earned long-winters nap!
