Evening thread, on Monday


#1

Hi
I’m sitting on a train :bullettrain_side: from Edinburgh to Glasgow, listening to a Richard herring podcast, sitting opposite a very German looking girl :girl: in a Germany football shirt.

What was the last train :bullettrain_side: journey you made?
What was the last podcast you listened to?
When was the last time you made an assumption about someone’s nationality?
What was the last foreign football shirt you saw someone wearing?

RULE :straight_ruler: if you are using a device that suggests emojis while you are typing you must use them.

Currently on a :light_rail: right now from Oxford to Glasgow, circa Carlisle. Sharing a carriage with some over-hyper sales reps who have been singing show tunes for the last 3 hours. :skull: me now.

Don’t listen to podcasts.

An Italian asked me about Brexit last week and I assumed that they’d be against it, but turned out they want their own …Itexit?

Dunno what the last :soccer:️ Shirt I saw was, but it was probably Celtic. My family have this saying that no matter where you go in the world you will always see a chump in a Celtic shirt.

Have I covered everything? Good.

Hello hello!

Slept badly last night and have ached all day. Didn’t get much work done. Going round a friend’s to watch a film later. Not sure what to have for dinner…

Last train - probably going into London. Sadly haven’t been on a lengthy train in a while.

Last podcast - feel like a listened to a David Sedaris one a while back.

Nationality assumption - thought my friend was Polish but he in fact has Brazilian heritage.

Football shirt - Japanese national team. A friend’s just come back from teaching there.

Have a nice evening all!

(weirdly my new phone doesn’t suggest emoji’s sad face)

Yes, why didn’t you post :email: the following emojis when prompted?
Football :soccer:
Left :point_left:

Hello Smee, I wasn’t prompted to post emojis and am somewhat confused by what you’re talking about.


#13

Train :steam_locomotive: from Newcastle to Glasgow a few weeks back. Far too busy for my liking.
Don’t often :ear: to podcasts - Listened to Global Globules because my brother sent me a link.
Last year I had a Congolese student and I correctly guessed she was Congolese because her name was a bit French and a bit African.
I wore my Santos shirt from Mexico last night. Another colleague in the same game wore the France away shirt.
