@lyndonriggall I've had no trouble travelling with fountain pens, except for vintage ones with rubber inner inktubes that leak on planes.

@ruby_danger me neither
@quippley it's new york. Maniacs is the default.
@_Roxie_ he's very serious. Has explained that all Ukraine taxi drivers know this. Attempt to persuade him otherwise has failed.
@elisabeth_pinto it would also be assault. And, given the design of this cab, impossible.
@davidrjroy he'd had that Yoko Ono in the back of his cab once.
@lkamsin Bad luck.
@kylecassidy I should've shaved...

RT @joe_hill: I'm signing & doodling 1,000 bookplates for the paperback of HORNS, & you can get 1 by preordering. Info: http://joehillfi ...
@BitterRuin give @brianviglione and @sxipshirey my love. In a gruff, manly sort of way.
@Valya pity. Every morning would AWESOME.
@lotuselyse only cos I never tweet the boring ones.
@Cosbert you must ask @Valya who told me about it this morning.
@SDuPreeBemis Now I feel even guiltier for not doing you a care package yet. How much longer are you on the road?
@daria_h that's heartbreaking!
@Anansi_ you must ask @Valya
On a plane. Half-way through writing a big blog entry I stopped to write a love letter to my wife. You can do that on planes these days.

@SteveNiles I wish!
@unbrokenrecord I'll be a guest on The Simpsons. Does that help?
NB All queries as to recipes for Ukrainian porridge & circumstances under which it's thrown at the ceiling for luck must be sent to @Valya.
Farewell cold winter. Hullo foggy marginally warmer winter.
@playdeadnyc British Monarch George V's reputed last words were "Bugger Bognor". #famouslastwords

@BeakerMeeps thank you, Beaker. meep ♥ @amandapalmer indeed.
@BeakerMeeps I couldn't have put it better myself.
