The graveyard shift

Filed under: Main — Mackanlee @ 10:07 am

Man I have been working the graveyard shift all nite. am now tired as hell but am going to install the sculpture that Valeria and I have made at Allhelgonakyrkan in stockholm.It will be on display there for 10 days from this friday so check it out. I wondered where tha expression “Graveyard shift”(meaning late nite work came from so I looked it up. Heres a good explination:

Michael Quinion at World Wide Words explains that the “graveyard shift is an evocative term for the night shift between about midnight and eight in the morning, when – no matter how often you’ve worked it – your skin is clammy, there’s sand behind your eyeballs, and the world is creepily silent, like the graveyard. The phrase dates only from the early years of the twentieth century.”

Why Sculpture, Why Here?
