Meaning sleepy/drowsy.

When I say/hear the word somnolent, it conjures up a picture of a someone lying idly on a couch drifting off into sleep. This person (in my head) always seems to be a couch potato and the type of person who always orders people around and never does anything for himself... It's interesting to note that though my imagery of the word matches the meaning somewhat, when you strip somnolent down to its basics all it really means is sleepy...
