To Sleep, Perchance To Pzizz Part Deux
From an unnamed university in the greater San Francisco Bay Area...
There are few things I love more than napping. Once my boyfriend told me that running was as crucial to him as napping was to me and I almost broke up with him. Who loves exercise as much as sleeping? Crazy people.
So when I saw K's post "To Sleep, Perchance to Pzizz" I was intrigued. Could this Pzizz improve upon the already essentially perfect act of napping? YES. Yes, it could. I've Pzizzed by myself, and forced a 19-year-old workstudy to Pzizz along with me. "I felt like I was floating through a black abyss. It would have been scary, but I was too relaxed," she said. Yes, my child. I know.
So I was hooked. It had to be mine. It was...$60?!? Even with the 20% coupon you can get for filling out a quick questionnaire, that's still....money! Seriously, what's 20% of 60*? Whatever, it's more money than I have to blow on activity that's currently free. Now, the Pzizz samples are good, but apparently part of the magic of Pzizz is that you can customize it to the length of nap you wish to take, or use it to help you fall asleep at night, and unlike sleep aid CDs, Pzizz changes every time so your brain can't get used to it. So just playing the two sample tracks over and over again wouldn't be getting the job done. Plus, I wanted to be able to download Pzizz to my iPod for planes and BART.
Enter: the Pzizz iPhone app. $9.95 for the nap version; $9.95 for the sleep version. And it's already on my mobile device! I will never be awake again!
*I know 20% of 60 is 12 and that the new cost of the Pzizz would be $48. I do possess the math skills of a 4th grader, lest anyone be concerned. Sometimes K and I pretend to be dumber than we are for comedic effect. Sometimes, we're just as dumb as we claim to be.
