Love that the simple pleasure of reading fiction can also be educational, or at least expand ones vocabulary. Word of the day: perspicacity.
@fenbeci sweet dreams!
@SheepOfJesus I’m all about union, but there is SOME league played here as well.
2/2 …that, and #rugby is a friggin’ awesome sport! Gotta love the skills and the big hits. Great for working out aggression.
@jaffacakespider thanks, he is pretty great. His next message was that he’d actually been looking for a cardboard cutout, but not found one.
@UnchainedMax haven’t really gotten into South African rugby. Which team should I be backing?
Any other #rugby nuts out there?
@Netherlanders yeah, it was a really fun game. Even ones are always fun.
@Netherlanders we played in Malmö, Southern Sweden to celebrate 30 years since our first game against each other
Retired mum + unemployed daughter = midday movie date
@Netherlanders thanks. You guys won though… 3-10.
@toffeebugs am personally not a coffee drinker, but I knew going in to that nap that it was perhaps a tad late in the day for one…
It’s 1am on a Thursday and I’m wide awake. Why did that afternoon nap have to feel so damn good?
@quaveriw I carried the torch in Lochwinnoch, near Glasgow.
A fireplace on my telly, lit candles. All set for a cosy night in. http://t.co/xbjBzopg1Q
2/2 …was definitely discovering what would become my passion in life. I likely never would’ve been exposed to #rugby had I not moved to HK
1/2 One of the best things about my #tck upbringing, apart from the bilingualism, friends, and amazing rare experiences I’ve had…
@Dernier_Ciel Sweden and Malaysia.
@donna_carlsson nice combo!
@mensuhh thanks :)
@mensuhh half Swede, half Malay. Currently living in Sweden but have lived in Singapore, Hong Kong, and New Zealand.
@mensuhh what’s your combo, so to speak?
@wzhkevin it’s only a matter of time ;)
@collentine totally get that. I’m kind of kiwi on the inside after 6 years there (even though I was technically an adult when I moved there)
@wzhkevin I don’t mind the cold at all when it’s the dead of winter and you get the perk of snow. Right now it’s just damp and foggy.
@wzhkevin well here it’s cold and muggy. I’ll take tropical rain over that any day!
@wzhkevin hi back at you! Guessing you’ve got better weather than us at the moment?
@bizzysapphire Khabar baik. And that’s about the extent of my Malay ;)
International terminals at airports feel oddly like home… #tck
As adults, we tend to be diplomatic and culturally sensitive. A lot of us get restless when we live in one place ”too long”. #tck
I find I tend to have more in common with other #tck:s (from different parental & host cultures) than I do w/ Swedes, Singaporeans or HKers.
Being a #tck you end up being part of a strange group, not quite fitting in with your parental culture nor your host culture.
In my case, despite being half Malay, my parental culture is Swedish, but I’ve spent parts of my childhood in Singapore and Hong Kong. #tck
So for those of you wondering, a #thirdculturekid is someone who has grown up in a culture other than that of their parents.
@inTOMnito checking the window thermometer… Verdict: 4,6 degrees C
@IreneProtest Singapore 3-7, Hong Kong 14-18
@xgebi hm… I’m familiar with Swedish culture but feel I’ve got an outsider’s perspective. I kiss having other TCKs to relate to.
@sayureizumi it’s someone who has grown up in a culture other than that of their parents.
@xgebi my passport country. And it’s provided me with half of my DNA.
@badsushichef it’s someone who has grown up in a culture other than that of their parents.
@ireland very Swedish. And in my opinion, very gross.
@PeopleofNZ I’m going for fluffy duvet and good book, myself
@ireland that, or chocolate.
@NailaJ no worries. Happy shopping!
@NailaJ both cdon.se and adlibris have a pretty good selection of books in English.
Stoked that the next @Writer_DG book on my list arrived. It’s been 24 hours since I finished the previous one & I was starting to get antsy.
The season may have just wrapped up this past weekend, but that does not mean that it’s too soon for a meeting to plan 2015! @ExilesLadies
@Nestor076 well if you want to speak like you’ve got a mouth full of porridge… ;)
@Nestor076 so lots of fika for you then? ;)
@Nestor076 always something :)
@DeafBrendan maybe it ages like fine wine? ;)
@Nestor076 they’ll usually sell it at Ikea around Christmas time
@DeafBrendan just the thought of that stresses me out!
@madmaxly but it’s getting to the point where we’ve got semlor in store before Christmas is even over…
@TribeTestMgr are you sure?
@ElkaSloan what is the world coming to?
@akuzativ känns ju liiiiiite tidigt…
@aderu haha, I suppose that’s one way of looking at it.
@stoppableforce it kind of stresses me out. Some of our trees still have leaves! We’re not even close to having snow yet!
@Zethian it must be spreading southward…
@Capesgo I guess it depends on what field you’re in but some friends who are still studying are concerned about life after graduation.
The ”perks” of unemployment are few and far between, but being able to sleep in late and have brunch on a weekday is definitely one.
@PeopleofNZ mmmmmm… L&P. Yum.
@HagmanNZ that’s what we’re hoping too
@rich1068 sweet! Will definitely be tweeting about that then :)
@PeopleofNZ 2/2 thankfully after 6 years in NZ (and another 5 back in Sweden) I’m now passable for for a part Maori or poly girl.
@PeopleofNZ 1/2 the slang is so easy to pick up. Sounded horrible when I first moved to Dunners and butchered everything with my tank accent
@jaffacakespider TOTALLY jealous!
@jaffacakespider don’t get me started. I might just drool.
@Leohafs ding ding ding! Correct!
@WeAreUAE not big unfortunately. We only have a few thousand players but we perform well internationally.
@chaotiqa I think I can manage
@bevanjf working up to it, Jules.
@MrSan tack det ska jag nog lyckas ha!
@rich1068 depends on whether or not I eat any before then. But then again I rarely tweet about food. Unless it’s scrambled eggs.
@KarinRomarker it’s a very special way to grow up. Some strange side effects, but wouldn’t change it for the world!
@Mocko500 great! A kindred spirit!
This week I’ll be preaching the #rugby gospel, as per usual —working to grow this awesome sport in Sweden and raise our profile abroad.
