Justin-from-Tokyo (who I also bumped into a few weeks ago in Narita airport, because it is a small world) was the journalist who told me that Douglas Adams had died, way back in the beginning of this blog. Some months ago we had lunch surrounded by audio equipment for the Rotten Tomatoes lunchtime podcast. It's now up. I have no idea if they've left in all the cries of "Pass the salt," and "If you aren't going to eat that can I have it?" and "Oh god. Mine's still twitching," that you normally hear over lunch, but you can find out over at http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/dinner_and_the_movies/news/1670066/.
