A sensation of an emotional void and pointlessness filling a Sunday afternoon, and the sensation of the impending Monday.
Coined by Douglas Adams in his 1982 book "Life, the Universe and Everything", and serving as the title for another of his books in 1988.
Synonymous with The Glenroes, and when exacerbated by a hangover - with the Sunday Scaries.
"In the end, it was the Sunday afternoons he couldn't cope with, and that terrible listlessness which starts to set in at about 2:55, when you know that you've had all the baths you can usefully have that day, that however hard you stare at any given paragraph in the papers you will never actually read it, or use the revolutionary new pruning technique it describes, and that as you stare at the clock the hands will move relentlessly on to four o'clock, and you will enter the long dark teatime of the soul."
