What was your first job as a journalist?
I had to determine if the yakuza in Yokohama were shaking down the foreign street merchants working in the area. They were.
Have you ever used a typewriter?
Yes, I have. I still have some whiteout in a drawer somewhere.

Dan Radcliffe was kind enough to invite me to "The Cripple of Inishmaan". Excellent play & performance. Nice dude. pic.twitter.com/aa3lNnDcMV
@_bcarr Oops. Clearly I've haven't been running today or I'd be thinking more clearly. 血の巡りが悪いなあ。
@idleglory :D I have some of those qualities I hope but am low on the "fxxx" self-respect. My kids make me pay 25 cents for F-word usage.
Today's word of the day: Runner's Boner runners-boner.urbanup.com/5301976#.U1Wdd… Healthy is as healthy does. I've found this to be true post-run

One of the greatest suspense films ever made: Sorcerer (brand-new DCP restoration, 4/24) shar.es/Tk7LK playing in #LA. Worth seeing
@Kishakishi excellent work Ms. Knight. A fascinating look at the former Baron of Bitcoin.
@semisara I feel the same way about my fundoshi but it fits inside my computer bag so nicely.
@semisara Crikey! Who is this bastard? And where did he steal the scripts!
