So here I am at half past three in the morning, working out how to do polls on my blog from my mobile phone. Severe back pain meant I wasn't going to get much sleep anyway tonight, but Mat's nasal orchestra certainly isn't helping. Well, apart from that it inspired the following poll:

Poll #1450 Insomnia
Open to: Registered Users, detailed results viewable to: All, participants: 25

Should I make a recording of the various snores, blarts and whiffles Mat makes in his sleep?

Won't help with the back pain, obviously, but I'd be lost without my little foam earplugs-- I use them on bad hubby snoring nights, or nights like last night, when the other half was sick and stayed up in the next room watching TV and trying to hack up a lung because he couldn't sleep.

I love my squishy earplugs.

Do it! Dooooo iiiiitttttt. You know you want to.

Besides, you'd be Internet Famous (among your bloggy friends, at least, more than you already are!).

And for those of us that have been subjected to Nasal Whifflings it is good to know there is solidarity out there! My first exposure to Nasal Whifflings was my father. My room was upstairs, and their room was downstairs on the other side of the house, and I could still hear him. Chainsaws and power drills have nothing on my dad.
As for pajh... well, I couldn't possibly comment. (And anyway, I'm not one to speak - I chew and grind my teeth in my sleep.) But I will observe that how murderous one feels seems to be directly linked to how one feels about the person. Occasionaly pajh-whifflings have not inspired the murderous rage I experience when faces with Nasal Whifflings from my father/brother/friends. (Many of my female friends are Champion Snore-ers.)

Heh, I have an easy response. I'll record her. With a timestamp. So every can hear her 4pm snoring and similar.

Went on a trip to Germany once with some friends, including [Bad username or site: nadriel @ livejournal.com"]. We'd booked so that he and another friend were on the other side of the hotel, on a different floor.

The hotel staff understood why when the complaints started coming in. And it didn't help us. I have no idea how I managed to sleep on his sofa for nearly a month when I moved to London.

From the results so far all I have to say is, Matt, hide everything that can record!!

I ticked 'no' purely because once when I had a stinking cold I was apparently snoring very loudly (and hadn't been getting much sleep myself because of stinking cold), and Ian decided to record it to prove to me how loudly I was snoring. Except the bleeping of his phone as he tried to set it up woke me and it made for a very grumpy Charlene.
