Can't remember what that is, I think they might already be pissed! I'd put the time at roughly 4pm friday, they've already had a couple, and 'Christmas drinky' is code for stepping it up to a total lost weekend. That dog isn't going to get fed til monday morning ... JB

Maybe it's a little swarm of faded aristocracy flies? PW

You described it to me earlier in an email as 'middle class dust'. I definitely suffer from that. JB
