is there life on mars?

Icon is not really relevant...

.....except that my bed is almost as uncomfy as Sam's fold-down cot-thing. :)

Seriously. I have a 25 year old mattress set I bought for a song when I moved down here, and it's just scary now--I can feel the frame and the springs and it's starting to give me back/neck/headaches. So I'm trying to figure out how to get a new(er) mattress, but they're so bloody expensive. *sigh*

And I just saw 1) a full-size mattress set, and 2) one of those plushy squooshy mattress covers, both on LAReUseIT (a free swap mailing list), but both were gone in the few minutes it took me to get in touch with both people. *grumpy face*
