I slept in 4 different places on my 5-day trip to the cold, snowy north. The first night was spent in a super-comfy sleep-number bed (I'm a 30) at Carole's house... with the perfect heaviness of blankets on top.
The next night was spent sharing a hotel room with Donnann and Annie, right next door to the breakfast room where we dined on bagels and cream cheese. The next two nights at the cottage where our retreat was held, I again shared a room with Annie, but this time slept in my own twin bed, in a room outfitted with a sound machine and extra pillows. The final night, I slept alone in a queen bed, and was surprised to wake up and discover that I hadn't even ruffled the sheets on the other side of the bed. I suppose it had become habit to sleep very still. That second night, I was careful not to roll over in my sleep and drape my arm across Annie's back. The next two nights, I was careful not to roll over and fall off the bed. By night 5, I was comfortable sleeping like a piece of lumber. :)
I just read a blog that detailed what Vice President Cheney requires in every hotel he stays at: 4 Diet Sprites, temperature at 68 degrees, every light on, every television tuned to Fox News (of course), decaf coffee brewed.
It made me think about what I'd require, were I a celebrity who could get away with that kind of thing: 1 bottle of water (for when I go to sleep), 1 20-ounce Diet Vanilla Coke (for when I wake up), crushed ice, temperature at 68 degrees (I can't stand to be hot), down pillows (3), current issues of People and scrapbooking mags (I like to read at night), a small package of peanut M&Ms (don't give me a bowlful - I'll eat the whole thing), a warm chocolate chip cookie, and the most recent New York Times Sunday Crossword.
What would you require?
