A Mixed Bag of Everything!!

I’m up at 3:30am, but I felt tired earlier. Still feel tired now, but I am wide awake at the same time.  This blog has a bit of everything, from stuff about me, to a new Cimorelli cover, and everything else in between. Let’s start with Sunday evening.

What happened Sunday evening you ask? I was booked in by the Civic Hospital sleep lab for a sleep study that coming Sunday. I had never had a sleep study before, and of course, I was extremely nervous. Lucky for me, I was able to take my sleep med for it.

What does a sleep study entail? 

  • You go into hospital and sleep overnight
  • You get to follow your home routine when you go there to sleep
  • A technician is assigned to perform the sleep study
  • Electrodes are placed to monitor breathing, brain activity, heart rate, oxygen level, whether you snore or not, among other things

How do you place the electrodes so they don’t move? For ones in the air, you:

  1. Place the electrodes with gauze and this toothpaste-like goop
  2. The toothpaste-like goop is what adheres the electrodes to the hair
  3. The toothpaste-like goop does not harden, so it has to be washed out once the study is done

Putting on electrodes on the face and body

You simply use tape, like for me the technician used paper tape. There are two belts. One goes around your chest, and one that goes around your stomach.

The only pain about the sleep study is getting the toothpaste-like goop out of my hair. My boyfriend’s sister, Kathy had offered to pay and get my hair washed and trimmed at a salon as a birthday present. If it wasn’t for her, it honestly would have taken days to get the crap out of my hair! Just… ewww!!

Cimorelli cover – Mashup

Cimorelli recently did a mashup of The Band Perry’s “Live Forever,” and Cassadee Pope’s “I am Invincible.” Cimorelli did a cover and mashed those two songs together.

“Live Forever” by The Band Perry

“I am Invincible” by Cassadee Pope

“Live Forever/I am Invincible” Mashup by Cimorelli

I always find Cimorelli’s mashups to be pretty awesome!!! Let’s see what you think! Leave your comments in the comment section below!

Now the randomness of this blog is done. I shall write again hopefully soon, sooner than the last time! 😀
