Someone's Been Sleeping In My Bed

If you're travel destination takes you to the UK, you may be interested to know that the Holiday Inn is offering "Bed Warmers" to warm up your bed  for 5 minutes (hopefully) before you get to your room.

The bed warmers arrive to your room in an all-in-one suit that covers them from head to toe and snuggle down into your bed to make sure it's nice and toasty for you. In fact, the Holiday Inn spokeswoman, Jane Bednall, says it's "like having a giant hot water bottle in your bed".

Also, Dr. Chris Idzikowski, who is the director of the Edinburgh Sleep Centre, thinks this could be helpful. He said:

"There's plenty of scientific evidence to show that sleep starts at the beginning of the night when body temperature starts to drop. The decline occurs partly because the blood vessels of the hands, face and feet open up and release heat. A warm bed - approximately 20 to 24 degrees Celsius - is a good way to start this process whereas a cold bed would inhibit sleep. Holiday Inn's new bed warmers service should help people achieve a good night's sleep especially as it's taking much longer for them to warm up when they come in from the snow."
If you would like to use this service, it's being tried out in London and Manchester.

No, this is not a joke. Nope. I didn't make this up and I don't think I could if I tried.

Here's what I think: "WHAT?"

Is there anything else to say? about I send over an electric blanket for them to set up and they can send someone in the room to turn that on 5 minutes before I am supposed to arrive? That sounds a little more doable.

I just don't get it...

What do you think?
