44 Late Night Stone Lions Loom

Three days to go before our hols so a succession of very late nights looms. That's difficult to say. "Late nights looms, late nights looms, late nights looms, nate lights..."  
For non-native speakers, Chinese is one long tongue-twister because of the tones. For example, the handy phrase "四十四隻死石獅子" (meaning 44 dead stone lions) comes out as "Sì shí sì zhī sĭ shí shī zì".
