Urban Word Wednesday: Bed Browsing

Welcome to Urban Word Wednesday! New words, phrases, and sayings I am learning (and using in my day-to-day life) brought to you by ME…and the Urban Dictionary. You are gonna love these!

Bed Browsing: Similar to Web Browsing, but done from the comfort of your bed.

Examples Of Use:

I’ve been desperately sick with a head cold this week and been stuck in bed since Sunday; except for my big adventure yesterday to the drug store for Kleenex and other supplies. When hubby got home last night, he took pity on me and offered to take me out in my cozy comfort clothes for comfort food. Pizza. We enjoyed this conversation while ordering our deep dish.

Hubby: I can’t believe you haven’t really left the house since Sunday.

Me: I know…I was feeling a wee bit claustrophobic today although the bed browsing has helped keep me entertained; when I’ve been awake that is.

Hubby: bed browsing? Are you shopping for a new bed?

Me: nope…surfing the web from the comfort of my bed! Bed browsing.

Hubby: hahaha…well I am sure your blogging family has been keeping your spirits up.

Me: the comments on mine and Jenny’s blogs over our Missed Connections fun have definitely helped!

Hubby: nothing better than bed browsing…

Do you ever partake in bed browsing? What kind of set up is most comfortable? 1 pillow or 2? Come on…share the wealth…

More blog deliciousness here:



  1. Whenever I’m sick for days on end, bed browsing is ALL that keeps me sane! Hope you get to feeling better soon. 🙂

  2. I definitely like bed browsing… especially Saturday and Sunday mornings. 🙂

  3. What a trooper, Natalie. Not one single “Hold on. HONK! Sniff, sniff.” comment during the Missed Connections riot. Hope you start feeling better soon. Like now. Immediately.

    I do not bed browse. First, because I have one busy Molly Wog lab who loves to hop on the bed, stand on my chest, root under the pillows, and stick her butt in my face for a butt scratch. Second, I last about 3 min and 30 seconds in conscious-thought-territory when I’m snuggled in bed.

    My bless-my-pea-pickin’-sickly-person’s-heart spot is my recliner near the fireplace on cold days, and my comfy chair and ottoman on the covered patio on good weather days–like today. But–even here–sometimes the snoooooooooooozzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzziiiiiiiiiiiieeeeeee…………………

    • LOL!! I tried to hang in there for y’all! 🙂

      Well, I can see that bed browsing would definitely not work for you even if you could stay awake. LOL!! My pooch can no longer leap tall buildings and bound into bed with me so I’m pretty safe but back in her youth, this would have been my dilemma as well. And a lovely one to have…

      Your two browsing areas sound ahhhhhmazing!!!!!

  4. Hubs bed browses every morning 🙂 Last thing before he turns out the lights, and first thing when he wakes up he’s on the iPod/iPad/Blackberry (whatever’s handy) and checks FB, Twitter and email (and kijiji). I’m more prone to do it on days when I plan to sleep in, lets me sleep in a little longer worry free that I haven’t missed anything.

  5. Oh, no, Natalie – – – I’m showing my age. When I crawl between those nice crisp sheets my mind is ‘supposed’ to switch gears. I fight insomnia–so no bed browsing for me unless–well could you include maybe ‘body browsing’ – the other person’s instead? I understand, you have a cold and they are nasty and hang on forever–in that case, bring on the Nyquil and sleep it off.

  6. I love being able to browse from all over the house. I remember when we first got wireless, you had to find most uncomfortable spot in the house! LOL! Hope you are feeling better!

    • HAHAHA!! I know, eh?! I remember when we were forced to sit in the office to do any computer work. Then came wireless and a laptop and it was BAM…where is the craziest place I can surf the web. LOL!!
      Thanks Pauline…I think I am on the uphill swing!

      • Now I can pick up our (locked) wifi out at the curb and part way down the alley! LOL! Let’s see, obviously we’ve all heard people talking in the next stall of the ladies…maybe at your gyn appt? =8-0 Distraction might help. LOL!

        Glad you are starting to feel better. Being sick is a PUNK!

  7. I bed browse all the time. Usually I prefer to curl up on my side. Thankfully my iPad has one of those covers that converts into a stand. 🙂

  8. Karen McFarland says:

    I’m so sorry you have the sniffles Natalie. Nothing worse than being sick. Bed browsing rocks, doesn’t it? I love bed browsing. I can relax and rest while keeping up with y’all. I can write, surf the web or watch a movie. It’s all good. Get well soon Natalie! 🙂

  9. Never done the bed browsing, but have done the sofa surfing. It’s similar,but utilizes a very comfortable couch instead. I usually lay completely flat with my feet propped up on the arm or with several pillows. For some reason having my feet higher than my head makes me feel really cool. I can only assume I look totally bitchin’ as well.

    I hope you feel better real soon.

    • Sofa surfing. Love that. I do plenty as well. I like to pay equal homage to all the comfy spots in the house. I mean, I don’t want anyone getting jealous of my extended ass prints, right?!?!

      ROLF! I bet you look bitchin’ for SURE!!! 🙂 I mean…who doesn’t in that position?!?!

  10. Definitely 2. One propped up vertically to cushion the head just right 🙂 Love bed browsing.

  11. I would have never made it through mono earlier this year without bed browsing! And I have to say that I immediately clicked over to that Jenny from the Blog link because I actually had that experience happen with an acquaintance, and I didn’t know what to say! Eeek!

    • Bed browsing would be a life saver when battling through mono. OMG for sure!!

      SHUT THE FRONT DOOR?!?! You did?!?!?! LOL!! How did it turn out?

      Poor hubby had that experience once. We were in the Dominican on our wedding trip. Me, him and my BFF all went swimming with the dolphins. And of course, we had a large group of strangers with us. 3 from German who spoke little to no English.

      As hubby was heading into the water, he noticed one of the German girls, who had just done a trick with a dolphin, was standing with her boob hanging OUT of her swimsuit and life jacket. He didn’t want to be the one to tell her and make her uncomfortable that he saw it…so he tried to softly yell over his should to my BFF to “tell the German girl her tit is hanging out…” (hoping my BFF would be the only one to hear and would discreetly handle the situation).

      To which my BFF YELLS back to hubby “WHAT??? TELL WHO HER TIT IS HANGING OUT???” making everyone look for the tit display. It took the poor German girl about 15 seconds to clue in and tuck that sucker back in. Hubby was mortified.

  12. I think the swimming experience was more interesting than the bed browsing, lol. I can’t bed browse. I don’t even want a TV in the bedroom. Once my head hits the pillow, there’s very little that can keep me awake, and the older I get . . . well, we don’t need to go into that.

  13. Aww, Natalie, hope you’re feeling better now! 😀

  14. I refuse to admit how often I bed browse even when I’m not sick 🙂 I hope you’re feeling completely better now.

    • LOL! We won’t hold it against you Marcy….there’s nothing better!

      Still battling the cold which has moved into my chest but I hope I’m finally on the mend. It’s hung around for a freaking week – what is up with that?! LOL!!

  15. My regular morning ritual is get up, say good-bye to the boy, hop in bed and read my mail & blogs. After my computer crashed, I so missed my bed browsing. I was too busy — running around in emergency mode and didn’t have time to sit and relax. Now that thee is a new desktop in place, and I have started to rebuild my life (kind of) today I pulled out my iPad and did a little bed browsing. So nice.
