This poor colonial boy would be happy to contribute if there was a link to the Australian version as well...

Nag, Bloody Nag, Bloody Nag

Here y'are.

Pogonip

I'm in, I'll be ordering presents and calendars.

Canadian colonial boys would agree.

Sam

a small fee for your host at no extra cost to you.

Wife and daughter #1 will be using your link this afternoon for Christmas shopping. So by teatime you'll be able to buy a new car.

David

Heh. They’re doing the Lord’s work.

Bonhomie is overrated.

But I will contribute for misanthropy.

Bless you, sir. May your duvet always remain equally distributed throughout the duvet cover.

Lab Rat

I shall avail myself of the US shopping link, Sir. And many thanks to ye for this blog which has provided me with many hours of entertainment (and I've learned a few things from it, too!) over the years.

Alice

May your duvet always remain equally distributed throughout the duvet cover.

It can't be done.

David

It can’t be done.

I find it can be achieved, for a while, if you’re using a sufficiently heavy winter duvet. There’s a certain inertia. But the summer duvet seems to roam about in the night, as if trying to escape, with the effect that I wake up under something with all the thermal insulation properties of a tea towel.

Couldn't one simply stitch the contents of the duvet in place (assuming I'm visualizing this thing correctly)?

PiperPaul

Wouldn't that make it a quilt, though? Quilts are unfashionable and the word is less cool to say.

My bedroom linen body of knowledge is probably, well, lacking, but boy, you should see my fluffy and orderly bathroom towels!

Ben

The duvet cover I just bought has ties on the inside corners, in order to secure the duvet in place. We shall see...

David

Get you.

Please put a permanent Amazon US button on the site. Instapundit shouldn't get all the commission swag from me.

David

Please put a permanent Amazon US button on the site.

I did, originally, but the widget didn’t play well with Typepad. So now there’s a link directly beneath the Amazon UK widget.

I worry that so many people here actually seem to know what the hell a "duvet" is.

I forget that some of you heathens just pile rocks and old newspapers on yourselves.

Ben

I was sold on duvets when I realized "making the bed" involved just shaking out the duvet. My wife still wants a top sheet in addition to the duvet, which utterly defeats the purpose.

That is only when in the refrigerator box or on a park bench. Other than that there are sheets. blankets, and poncho liners. Duvet just sounds like a French outhouse.

David

It’s madness. Pure heathenry.

Have you tried shaking her by the elbows?

PiperPaul

Andrew Grose explains bedroom linens and bed-in-a-bags for us rock and newspaper covered heathens.

Ben

Have you tried shaking her by the elbows?

I'll add it to the list - she's of stubborn stock. I still haven't gotten her to watch 'The Godfather'.

David

I can honestly say I didn’t expect bedroom linens to be such a lively topic of conversation.

Ben

We are large, we contain multitudes. Some of which are really into bedding, apparently.

Trevor

I worry that so many people here actually seem to know what the hell a "duvet" is.

They were known as 'continental quilts' when they became popular in England. I was quite discombobulated when one appeared on my bed without warning in the early 70s, especially as my parents were older and not what could be called adventurous.

Farnsworth M. Muldoon

Enough of blankets named after a brand of chamberpot, art is afoot !

NSFW or your vision.

As a woman of color, and also a lesbian, Aguilar belongs to, as she puts it, a “hidden subculture” within another subculture, a marginalized community within another marginalized community. Her work is an exploration of this precarious double identity, with her own unconventional body often serving as subject and symbol.

You must guess what "unconventional body" means.

First to guess correctly gets a duvet cover cover.

Governor Squid

Aguilar belongs to, as she puts it, a “hidden subculture”

Would that it remained so.

Just wait until we delve into the Social Justice aspects of bed linens.

Been done.
