deird1: Toph looking pretty (Toph pretty)

Yet another small moment when I realise how different my life is from Agatha Christie's:

Colonel Race looked at his watch.
'Ten-past-twelve. Time for another?'
'You'll excuse me,' said Superintendent Battle. 'But I'm by way of being an "early-to-bed" man.'


Maybe it's just me... but in what twisted universe does leaving a party after midnight count as "early to bed"?

Back in my California days, I would have to say that being in bed before two was considered rather fogeyish.

Well he might have meant it was already past his bed-time...

Although to me an early night is going to bed before midnight, I am usually in bed by about 12.15am, and a late night is after 1am. To my daughter bed-time is about 11.00pm - but a late night is 5am!

Of course most of us in the UK start work at 9am, whereas I know there are other countries where the usual start time is 8am or even earlier - which begins to dictate what time bed-time is.
