In which I had a round bed … in London

I’m not even sure where to begin here.  I’m in London and I arrived yesterday and since I only slept an hour on the plane, I was a bit bleary eyed.  Because I’m here for a big joint fiftieth birthday party, I am staying at a hotel.  When I checked into my room yesterday, I was surprised to see my room.  Why? Because I walked in and there was a round bed.  You heard me (or I suppose in this case, you read this right) a ROUND BED!!  I have never actually seen a round bed outside of a movie but being as I was exhausted, I collapsed into it for a nap anyways,  it was really quite comfortable.

 

After a one hour nap I awoke and decided to take a shower,  by now it was dark outside and guess what, it was dark in my room as well.  Unfortunately, I couldn’t find any light switches and when I did I noticed that there was a bathtub.  RIGHT BESIDE MY BED!!

Surely this can’t be the only shower in my room I thought (as the tub was surrounded by a glass shield) because it was also completely surrounded by mirrors.  Now I realize that to take a normal shower I have to get naked but the last person I want to see naked is ME!!! Especially in 360 degree 3D!!! Well, maybe not the last…but pretty damn close. It was a dismaying thought to say the least.

 

There were however, lots of interesting choices on the shower.  Unfortunately I couldn’t read them because I still couldn’t find any damn light switches.  After much exploring, I did find a very small shower in the bathroom (remember the tub was in the main room NEXT TO THE BED) so I decided to take my shower wedged in there instead.

 

So I took the shower and headed over to my cousins where we all went out to a fun Mexican meal.  On the way home, after good food, many beers and an AWESOME BUZZ, it was pointed out to me that Annie Lennox lived a few houses away.  I haven’t run into her yet.  I have no idea what shape her bed is.

 

So, I was still pretty tired and decided around 10:30 to go to sleep.  There was a ceiling fan and I wanted it on for the ambient noise but due to the lack of light (not lights! There were plenty of lights but I couldn’t figure out where the switches were) I couldn’t find the switch for the fan.  Finally after 20 minutes, I called down to the desk to ask where the fan switch was.

 

“Next to the door” they told me.  And so it was, at about the 6 foot level there was a box which was the fan control.  It was so high that I had NO IDEA what the box was.  So, after feeling like a mouse in a maze with all these switches, I turned on the fan, got into my round bed, said goodnight to the tub next to me and went to sleep.

 

And so began my stay in London …

    Oh taking a shower in the dark! I can see it now, reaching for shampoo, slipping, falling, breaking a hip or ankle, not being near the phone and lying there for the duration of the trip…I’ve fallen and can’t get up! Then being found by housekeeping, half in/half out of a tub surrounded by a glass shield which reflects me and my demise…no not good. Just thinking about it makes me want to put Kahlua in my coffee.

    Hope you enjoy your trip now that you have some lights! ;-)

    Sounds like a good time was had by all. The round bed and mirrored shower were pretty freaking funny :) At least there was no bidet….that would be a blog in itself!

    I don’t know why, but I’m a little freaked out by the look of that round bed. If it were me, I’d envision myself scooting around in circles all night long, my hands groping for a headboard as a home base. Disconcerting and disturbing…almost as much as the tub.

    a round bed is for shagging….

    That bed was made for bonking. And the tub? Also bonking. Mirrors? So totally for bonking. Which is silly. Because really, who ACTUALLY looks good while having sex? No-one! And if the guys we were with ever actually got a look at themselves making their donkey face at the crucial moment, well, they’d never want to have sex with us again. OK, you’re right, they’ll ALWAYS want to have sex. What was I thinking.

    Hey – maybe that’s why there weren’t any lights! To keep the ambiance for the shagging?
