M: Yeah. So to pull an all nighter, you don't sleep all night. You stay up, you stay awake. Because you're preparing for the exams. You're listening to our podcast. You are liking all our videos, buying our premium and phrasal verb course. So you don't go to bed, you pull an all nighter. Yeah, I used to pull an all nighter. Oh, can you say I used to pull all nighters? Can you change the phrase in the plural? So if you stayed up late, regularly, can you say I pulled all nighters?
R: Yes. Why not?
M: Yeah. So you can say I'm a morning person. I'm an evening person. I am a night owl. And a nice phrasal verb to stay up late. Or just to stay up or pull an all nighter. And the question is like, do you like the morning or evening? And Rory says, well, that will depend entirely on how I'm feeling. So that depends entirely on how I'm feeling. Rory, entirely, is it an adjective or an adverb?
R: Well, here it's an adverb because, well, it's, it's like describing how much you depend, I suppose, on something happening, or something being the case.
M: Yeah. And you can say I feel more productive in the morning than in the evening. And then the examiner goes, okay, okay, but tell me about your evening times. Okay, I see you are more productive in the morning, but what about the evening? You know? Why do you like evenings? What do you usually do? And Rory just admits it. He says, I'm very boring. Dear listener, "watcher", our fan, do you think that Rory is boring? Rory, do you, do you, what's the joke?
R: Well, no, I'm being entirely serious when I say that. I'm like the most boring person in the universe, or at least I tried to be when it comes to going to bed and getting up early. So sorry about that, if anyone's disappointed.
M: Yeah. So if you are like Rory, if you're a morning person, and if you don't like this, but you like the evenings, right, Rory? Do you like evenings?
R: I like all kinds of the day. It just depends on what's happening to me.
M: Hmm, okay. So you can say like, I'm very boring. I go to bed early, and I read in bed, then I fall asleep, I wake up, right? I don't usually stay up, or never pull all nighters. Yeah? And that's on the weekday. Evening. So on weekday evenings, right? I can also say, like, in the evening, or in the evenings, yeah?
