Tag Archives: Sleep Talkin’ Man

“I haven’t put on weight. Your eyes are fat.”

Some of us might lay awake at night waiting for the inspiration of our next greatest success to strike.  For Karen Slavick-Lennard, she lay awake listening to her mild-mannered husband, Adam, become a potty-mouthed, egotistical philosopher while he slept.  Karen admits that she would initially listen and giggle as Adam would fire out his — sometimes saucy — nuggets of unconscious wisdom.  And after months of listening — and still giggling — to his zany pillow-talk, Karen started writing down his musings and then moved on to recording him with a voice activated recorder, when her own sleep began to suffer.

Karen started a journal of his nocturnal ramblings for their family and friends at http://www.sleeptalkinman.blogspot.com/ and it wasn’t long before the blog, connected to a twitter account, went viral.  Her blog-site now sells t-shirts, mugs, ringtones, aprons, bags, mouse pads, and pretty much anything else you may want with her husbands after-hours “greatest hits” printed on them.   

A few of my favorites include; “Don’t leave the duck there. It’s totally irresponsible. Put it on the swing. It’ll have more fun.’  And of course, “I’m telling you: your voice, my ears. A bad combination.”  And my all-time favorite, “Vampire penguin? Zombie guinea pigs … we’re done for.”

Check out the blog and sign up for a daily dose of his cheeky chit-chat, but be warned — there is a very STRONG language warning.  He speaks with reckless abandon and uses every colorful adjective available to the uncensored mind.

I predict an upswing in market sales this quarter for voice activated recorders!
