Attention Townspeople: Ten Hours Per Night Is No Longer Enough.

Remember when I told you that Ashley Judd was struggling to manage her grueling MBA program at Harvard because she was, at the time, only getting 9 hours of sleep per night, when she requires 10 in order to function?

Well, I thought you should know that 10 hours per night is no longer adequate. She now requires 10 and a HALF.

It takes DISCIPLINE to sleep that much, she says.

Actually, I’d argue that it simply takes being a spoiled rotten multi-millionaire who can set your own schedule in your movie contracts and have an entire staff of people who serve all of your needs and hang on your every word.  It doesn’t take discipline – it takes the MEANS to be able to sleep almost half of every day away.

I can see where she’d get that confused with “discipline” though.

    ‘fortnight’???? (sorry, Gipper Gal)

    OMG that has to be the funniest thing of the week…MONTH maybe.

    Who on earth uses that word except when making fun of pretentious people?

    When she turned 40 was it her “2 score” birthday?

    Now i see why you hate her. I have to say, prior to the most recent racecar driver thing, and now this, I didn’t get the hate.

    It seems to me that if a person is required to learn discipline and self soothing techniques in order to maintain 10.5 hours of sleep per night, then perhaps their body doesn’t actually need that much sleep. Hmm… although I have not personally had the burden of my body requiring me to sleep 10.5 hours each night. In fact, I can’t even remember when the last time I slept for 12 was… if ever.

    I have not yet had to learn self soothing techniques either… Unless you count falling asleep while working on a paper, grading papers, or studying for the GRE. As someone who attends college full time, works as a TA, and works around 40 hours per week, I just don’t seem to find the time. “Lessons to my younger self” <- When Ashley Judd starts paying my tuition I will start a self care regimen that meets her standards. Until then, I suppose I will continue working each day until I can't work anymore and hope my alarm does not fail me in the morning. đŸ™‚

    I have found that as I get older I need less sleep. I am consistent at 7 hours 4 minutes and 37 seconds every night, ewxcept for the Ides of March when my need go up by 21 minutes 12 seconds. Top that Beeotch!

    As someone with a high sleep requirement I *could* identify except for the fact that they are now saying that regularly sleeping more than 9 hours a night actually puts you at higher risk of stroke. That being so, I am not really any more proud of that need than I would be of say, smoking a pack a day, not wearing a seatbelt, or using drugs. Just sayin’!

    Fortnight? Learnt? I can accept the fortnight, though she isn’t British. But “learnt”? hmmm
    It sounds to me like she is lazy. I agree with livelaughlove, sounds like if you have to do all that work just to sleep then maybe you don’t need that much.

  • WakeUp

    k, “learnt” is also British English… Sounds like she is trying to be Madonna… with the fake sophistication and all.

  • HesterPrynne

    Along with how to be irritatingly pompous, I think she’s ‘learnt’ some ten dollar words like “unanncy”. I should sleep more so I can sound smart, too.

  • Reminiscent_of_Purple

    As far as I’m concerned she can sleep 24 hours a day.

  • KatieB

    Learnt? Fortnight? What the heck. It doesn’t take discipline to sleep 10.5-12 hours a night, it takes pills and liquor….she’s clearly a drunk.

  • Gail

    WTF is “unanncy”? Do you think she gets out a dictionary and tries to find some really obscure word that nobody uses just so she can show how superior she is? And fortnight? Seriously??? I didn’t even think Brits still used that word anymore. I seriously cannot stand this woman!!

  • carol0717

    well, there’s Nancy, then there’s Un-nancy. I’m guessing it’s the opposite? (shrugs)

  • Gail

    Haha! I actually looked up “unanncy” on dictionary & and it doesn’t show up either place. Stupid bitch.

  • Anonymous

    I have a pretty decent vocabulary, and I have never heard, “unanncy” so I looked it up. Appears that Miss Harvard mispelled uncanny!

  • carol0717


    and she’ll try to blame auto-correct somehow.

    even though “unanncy” is not a word. lol

  • burning eyeballs

    If you need to sleep that much and are gradually increasing it you are more than likely suffering from depression.

    Which explains a lot…just sayin’…

  • tphilisw

    This is a case of douche baggery.

  • Carol0717

    tphilisw –

    I think it’s also a severe case of unnanciness.

  • Buckeye Bob

    It seems there was more to that twitter exchange.

  • jethro

    Wouldn’t you love to sneak in to her sleep place and wind the clocks forward and back every night. Maybe someone does that already and that’s the reason she is batshit crazy.

    KatieB hit the nail on the head. She is a spaced out self medicating drunk that doesn’t know how many pills she takes before bed. That’s where the inconsistent sleep behavior comes from.

    I might go now and get 7.25.40 hours non self soothed sleep.

  • Jane

    once in a fortnight?
    this is hilarious… i busted out laughing… i used this word online once but only as a joke.
    who speaks like this except someone from the archaic 1600s
    i think she loves every chance she can get to use some complex or unusual vocabulary word to make her feel and appear so superior to the greater population at hand that read her trash

  • http://[email protected] lala

    btw, unanncy isn’t even a word so maybe she meant uncannY???

  • http://[email protected] lala

    btw again, lol…
    i think she is confusing “discipline” with sheer laziness


    when i sleep, i do not want to get out of bed… i wouldn’t say it takes much discipline to stay in bed, but then again im not mrs almighty judd
