@ajhill_alan There’s no real difference between working on the train and working at some other random location.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

@ajhill_alan Not really, because it’s on average one day a week, and I get a lot of things done on the train.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to ajhill_alan

This is my eighth train segment for the day.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

Why the fuck have I gotten into a fight about football, about which I know fuck all?

via Tweetbot for iΟS

@_midofo_ Well Essendon stole the whole magpie thing.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to _midofo_

@petstarr Great match, apparently, but yeah you’re screwed.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to petstarr

@daniels_den Indeed. :) But for now I’m just making my way back up the Hill after a few drinks. With lads watching the AFL.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to daniels_den

@_midofo_ So I’m originally from Adelaide and you can just fuck off.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to _midofo_

@bernietb They were right when I tweeted it, accounting for buffering delays.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to bernietb

The vibe in the train is that it was a great match, but a couple of these lads had money on the game and they’re not happy.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

OK so down to the wire with Port just points ahead an seconds to play, West Coast Eagles scored a goal and won. In the last 30 seconds.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

It’s kinda cool that these lads on the train are streaming video of the AFL match on their phones and keeping me up to date.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

The lads on the train tell me that Port Adelaide is 13 points up.

@travisbynight Mate, the entire Blue Mountains is closed now. I’ll just crawl into bed and die.

@daniels_den Well you’re in Sydney from time to time, and I’m in Canberra from time to time, so we can make it work.

@daniels_den I understand. Sportsball is not a thing for me, but I understand the appeal. Have your teams fulfilled your needs?

@kcarruthers Oh I missed that bit. But yeah, if he was the candidate then it was a foregone conclusion.

via TweetDeck in reply to kcarruthers

@SnarkyPlatypus You need to watch BoJack Horseman. An episode in series 4 addresses exactly this issue. With drug references.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Either way, this will not end well.
