Follow on from the Sleeping Positions For Singles comic. A few fun things to think about in bed, if you feel you get too much sleep (a very common problem, I'm sure).

Alan Rickman!!(God bless his soul) Rowan Atkinson was the bird you numbscull!
(Sorry I just love The Lion King...)

Actually I think it was Jeremy Irons. Rickman would have made an excellent villainous lion though! Now I wish he was in it!
The Lion King is one of my favourites :)

Haha now I feel like an idiot... xD Though in my defense I grew up with the Swedish version xD

Mel Cormac
That's a very good defence to be fair.
*resists urge to look up the Swedish version* I love songs in translation.

Ha ha ha! It's funny because it's 3am and I'm having a bout of insomnia!

You would think the human brain would want to encourage sleep, but apparently...

I always fall prey randomly to no. 4, yep.

And this is the FIRST TIME since Lion King came out that I've learnt who voiced Scar and Zazu, WOW, I really did NOT know that XDDD

WOT: Educational.

4,5,6,and 8 get me the most, though they've all kept me up at least once.

I never thought this comic would ever be described as educational, but I'm not going to fight it.

Oh, are we picking the one that relates most to us? cus #6 is ME!!!!
I can't tell you how many times I've gotten up and started drawing again. And #3, and #4and #1. In that order I guess.
Also, I love how much the art has improved from the previous page you linked.

Mel Cormac
I think 4 is the one that most people fall prey to... I think 6 is the most positive, if it is pretty annoying. The amount of time I spend in bed on my phone tapping out story ideas...

I used to hate looking at my older pages, but now seeing the improvement is encouraging :) Thank you!

Actually I constantly think about dumb things I did a long time ago, even when I'm awake. I don't have trouble sleeping though. A healthy 18 hours of sleep for me!

Haha yeah that is true! I don't need to be in bed to remember all my biggest mistakes :,D

6. SIX. Last week I had a dream that got my creative juices flowing and I couldn`t sleep the next few days because the ideas just kept growing! PAIN and AGONY.

Oh man yeah, and if I look at my phone to note down ideas when I'm in bed, my brain is like "oh it's morning now? Good, wakey wakey!" and no sleep. Forever.

Why can't our brains wait until we are AWAKE to give us the creativity boost?
