Cold pillows
I can't sleep on room temperature/hot pillows. Fact. When I was younger, I often hung them out of the window, especially in winter(!) so that they were literally ice cold.

Also, I simply HAVE to rotate my pillows three times before I lay my head on them, despite this bringing the side of the pillow that was facing me initially, back to the top. I can't settle unless I do this.

I am weird.

Abilene (adj.)
Descriptive of the pleasing coolness on the reverse side of the pillow.

I am impressed, and I have learned something. Maybe I'm not alone after all!

Was that whole thing copied from "The Meaning of Liff?"

Looks like it. Not sure if it's legal, but Douglas Adams is dead, so he can't sue

I was more impressed by how long it would have taken.
I don't think Mr Adams would mind and Norwegian copyright law probably allows for it anyhow.

Oh yes
cold pillows are lully. I can sleep with a warm pillow but the feeling of nestling into a cold one is pure pleasure. And now I see it has a name :-)

Shirley, if you rotate them three times
Then you either mean 3 x 180 degrees, which leaves them the other way from how they started, or 3 x 360 degrees, in which case it seems a pointless comment that they are the same way up.

Or, not being certifiably insane, am I missing something?

[postscript] I agree about cold pillows, though

Ah good question!
Though I like the vertical turning idea, it do actually rotate them 360'. Yes this leaves them in exactly the same position they were in when I started this debacle, but I can't stop myself. I also smooth them down, and THEN 'fluff' the pillows, effectively destroying the smoothing that I have just done. Utterly pointless.
