Night Names

So nocturnals can give the time of night

For many people, night workers, bar-hoppers, cyber surfers and insomniacs, night life is the life; days are for sleeping. It therefore follows that they need names for the nights just like names for the days. I suggest using contemporary gods or icons when naming the seven nights, though Godnight or Reverendmartinlutherkingjuniornight leave something to be desired. Maybe Lincolnnight, Churchillnight, Teresanight, Gatesnight...

In the future one may hear a worker on the last shift of the week utter, "Thank God it's Elvisnight" or an English speaking, street walking Vietnamese sigh, "Another Buddhanight, another new dong" (honest). Carpe nocte!

       What's wrong with monnight, tuesnight, wednesnight, etc. that we already have?

       We do? Well that's no fun, except for Sunnight.

       ...which would be renamed Moonight?

       How about:   

       Moonight
Washnight
Kryptonight
Middlenight
Dymanight
Fishnight
Partynight

       why don;t we do this idea just without silly names for the night time, coz otherwise non- halfbakers will probably refuse to accept them

       ...and?

       Croissant. I believe almost every baker stays up beyond midnight, so why not create a system for the insomniac?

       =/ Well, seriously, I don't think it's really all that wonderfully important. When I read this, I thought it was damn funny. Eh, it'd be funny to hear someone say, "Damnit, tomorrow's Buddahnight, have to make the kids lunch again." Buddahnight.... Oh my Buddah.

       + yeah, and now I really don't understand why it's Mon-day night, Tues-day night, Wednes-day night...
