One of the hardest to define slang terms from Oz. It's associatted with moderately heavy, heavy and/or the over the top use of stimulants or amphetamines such as ice. Humourously used to describe to someone about your state of mind in combination with the amount of days in a row you have been without sleep, and the estimated days you expect to continue being awake and used in the same vien also, when lightheartedly stirring somebody else up who is also obviously - via thier actions, in the same condition. It's comedic value is derived from the fact, that when said, being most likey many months, or at least weeks and weeks away from christmas day, that in fact only 3 actual occurrences of a good nights sleep are likely to occur before that holiest of holiest days arrives. It's like saying that on a busy day at the carpark of a shopping centre, that "millions" of cars were parked all over the place, making it a pain to get out of there in any decent amount of time, when there may have been actualy 50.
guy walks into a club, his friends noticing the eyeballs and fidgetyness, combined with his uncanny savvyness, dash and the ability to see and understand the secrets of the universe. He walks up to his group of buddys and proclaims " 3 sleeps till christmas" while smiling, showing the sparkle of light shining from his teeth like in the cartoons, and shouts all his pals thier favourite beverage.
the same guy walks into the same club, looking a little like henry munster, glazed eyes, not realy sure if the name on his drivers licence and the associatted picture, is actually him, muttering something along the lines of " i am woman hear me roar" has all his pals racing over to see who can be the first to overwhelm and bedazzle him with the saying, all very likely in fits of hysterics at just how out of it, thier not so fine weathered friend is. They'd probably immediately also mention, that he's been here for hours and "that he somehow has got out of paying for his last two shouts of drinks and to please go to the bar, all just wanting the usual"
