    suppose you're thinkin' about a plate o' shrimp. Suddenly someone'll say, like, plate, or shrimp, or plate o' shrimp out of the blue, no explanation. No point in lookin' for one, either. It's all part of a cosmic unconciousness.

    Oh yes. Some parties go from Saturday night until past midday Sunday over here. It's more like survival.
    One festival I do runs all day and night for 4 days so you're doing dusk to 6am 3 days on the trot.

    You are using Bonetti's defense against me, ah?

    I thought it fitting, considering the rocky terrain.

    No one would believe me about the 35 hour day.
    Of course they would. A 9am start to load, then travel rig, gig all night until past lunchtime the following day, strike show, get home, unload by about 9pm the following day. Done by a lot of folks in the production end of the entertainment business, especially the small firms and sole traders. My Facebook feed is alight most Sundays with people on their way out or back from a job/party.
