Yes, travelling counts.
A cool 40 hours for me when I went to Australia.
I'd been on the Anthea Gurners, obvs
Grey zombie hand grabbing my arm being the highlight.
birth of our first child (c. 6.30am Wednesday to c. 11pm Thursday)
On a return leg of flying back from the Philippines to Heathrow, via an hour wait on a runway on a different Philippine island to the one we departed from, then 5 hours in Singapore, then from Heathrow to the Isle of Wight. I think this was the time my sis had a fit on the plane so I had to sit in the air crew area :/
pretty sure i've done like 60 hours before where all i've done is lay on my back browsing drownedinsound and eating
woke up half 8 the Wednesday, did an all nighter for my flight whic was 5am Thursday and then went to bed at about 2am the Thursday night
so thats ..42 hours?
I lost my tiny little mind
when lived in Manchester and went on a bender and didn't sleep all weekend over a long weekend.
without the asistance of columbia's finest export or its sister mandy, I would say no more than 40 hours and not out of choice, out of work allnighter situations.
went up north to Bradford to look at a flat then visited a friend in Manchester went to a gig followed by a clubnight that went on until 7 AM then caught the coach back down to MK the next day.
I actually felt alright that time but during subsequent time where I had about two hours sleep in between two days I started to have some serious, room rocking from side to side style hallucinations.
for about two and a half days straight once. Video games make me forget everything though. I can't play them now I have a dog cause I would never remember to feed it or take it out :-\
can't do it at all
writing my dissertation in one sitting. Included reading all of Heart Of Darkness, and the rest of the time I had Apocalypse Now on TV on a loop (subject of the essay). I got real weird with it.
91% though, so maybe that's the way to do these things, kids.
for writing a dissertation on HOD/ AN
roping in all kinds of mystical bullshit and just jamming it in to the writing whenever the mood took, chasing down classical myths that John Milius had alluded to in his script and chucking stuff at it that I didn't totally process or even entirely understand. Very much like Coppola.
I was not on any drugs though.
12,000 words - 500 words an hour. Scored a 67 in the end, worth it.
So about 50 hours, I think.
started reading a creakyknees post and lost track
all nighter to write a uni presentation, gave the presentation, straight from uni onto a 12-hour trip from Cornwall to Manchester via 2 trains and 2 Megabuses. went to a casino when i arrived and spent a further few hours at the hotel getting with my ex for the first time. no stimulants or anything. only had 3-4 hours' sleep to recover from it.
