How Famous Men Sleep in 2020

About 10 years ago I posted a list of the sleeping positions of a few famous folks. Some were based on characters in TV shows and movies, and the rest were about real-life people. You can check that list here. I’ve decided it was time to update the list! So in 2020, here’s a list of famous men (John Krasinski, Donald Trump, Post Malone, and more)  and the positions I believe they sleep in at night. But first, the list of various positions:


SLEEPING POSITIONS… 

sleep-patterns2

Fetus position – tough exterior but are still sensitive and may appear to be shy but warm up quickly.

Log position – social, easy-going person who is trusting, sometimes to the point of being gullible.

Yearner position – open-minded and still cynical, suspicious, and stubborn about sticking to decisions once they are made.

Soldier position – reserved, quiet, without fuss, and hold themselves and others to a high standard.

Freefall position – brash, outgoing, and very uncomfortable with criticism.

Starfish position – good listeners, helpful, and uncomfortable being the center of attention.


FAMOUS MEN…

John Krasinski (Actor) – Fetus or Log (tough exterior yet sensitive, social and easy going)

Donald Trump (US President) – Freefall (brash, outgoing)

Joe Biden (Former VP of US) – Fetus or Yearner (sensitive but cynical/stubborn)

Post Malone (Entertainer) – Fetus or Soldier (tough exterior, high standard)

Jimmy Fallon (Entertainer) – Log (social, easy-going)

Louie Giglio (Pastor of Passion City Church) – Soldier (high standard)

Sean Connery (Actor) – Soldier (reserved, high standard)

Tom Hanks (Actor) – Log (easy going)

Denzel Washington (Actor) – Soldier (reserved, high standard)

Jose Altuve (MLB Baseball Player) – Starfish or Fetus (uncomfortable with attention)


Please know these are all just educated guesses. I have no solid information on how these men sleep so I’m basing this information on their public persona. Check back soon for a list of how famous women sleep!

This post is brought to you by… Michael Bloomberg’s tie!

This post is brought to you by Michael Bloomberg’s tie. Taking on a life of its own during last night’s interview on the Tonight Show, his blue tie wants you to know, “I’ll distract everyone from the nonsense you speak about. And no one will notice how weird it looks when you laugh.”

More interview clips can be found on the Tonight Show YouTube page. To be honest, I want to get in an inner tube and ride down his tie. I want to climb to the top of it and plant a flag that says, “I conquered the tie.” I want to flick it back into place. I want to submit it to Guinness as the the tallest roller coaster on someone’s chest. I want to jump off of it like a motorcycle ramp to the future.

Life: Laughing together like people in Japan probably do

Laughing.

We all do it. Babies. Old folks. Democrats. Republicans. AP English teachers. Criminals. People in the smallest town in the US to people in the largest city in Japan.

ms smilingWhen God created us, he included something that makes life so much more enjoyable. The sense of humor. And it’s pretty cool that there are different types. Something I find funny isn’t the same as what you think’s funny. Sense of humor can be seen in all areas of life; from TV ads like this one…

…to funerals where someone giving the most heartfelt eulogy can pepper in a bit of humor that works perfectly, even in the midst of heartbreaking loss.

I’ve been thinking some this week about this thing called humor. How it fits into my life. If you know me at all, it’s needless to say I value it very much. I absolutely love making someone laugh with a timely thought, an odd look, or a movie quote. And I equally love when someone can make me laugh. There’s more to it, though, and this is what I’ve been wrestling with the past few days.

When do I use humor to keep people from knowing the deeper things in my heart?

I think there are times I don’t like to admit that I’ve used humor as a way for you to like me. Sort of a social resume. It’s especially true when I first meet people. Humor is a way to say, “Hey, I’m a fun person!” I hand over a piece of paper with a few topical one-liners, a personal quip about my dogs, an impression of Jimmie Fallon doing an impression of Donal Trump.

“Let’s build a waalllllll.”

But hey, I’ve already built a wall! Yes, perfect segue. I can comfortably hide behind this wall to keep from revealing the other things I value. Deep conversations. Complete trust. Working hard and not cutting corners. No one wants to talk about those things in social scenarios, right? So a wall’s constructed, beautified, updated with the most current news or movie quotes, all in an attempt to:

  1. Get you to like me
  2. Keep me from being vulnerable which could lead to rejection

This weekend, though, I’ve longed for that vulnerability. I feel it most alive, or most exposed, when I have conversations with long-time friends, those handful of people that’ve climbed over the wall to experience the deeper parts of my personality. Beyond the humor I sometimes hide behind.

So to my long-time friends, thank you for letting me be vulnerable. To new friends, please like me! I hope one day soon we can let our guards down. To laugh together like people in Japan probably do, but also trust each other like long-time friends do.

Ha Ha Clinton-Dix is a gift to comedians everywhere

It’s like the perfect storm of random elements coming together at just the right time for comedians. There’s an NFL football player named Ha Ha Clinton-Dix. haha1

And of course, there’s Hillary Clinton who’s running for president. A lot of jokes come from the fact that Ha Ha’s last name is Clinton-Dix, and Hillary is wife to Bill, who had an affair when he was president. So he’s somewhat seen as a ladies man, at least to comedians like Jimmy Fallon. So combining these two elements is almost too easy. 


And here’s another from Key & Peele, playing on the odd names we see in the NFL, even A.A. Ron Rodgers.
