Screwed up
- Brought the number of times I’ve missed the super rare Toei sex doc Sapporo, Yokohama, Nagoya, Ogoto, Hakata: Toruko wataridori (1975) to three:
1) Stayed too late in another theatre, missed the screening (2014)
2) Had to delay my flight, missed the screening (2016)
3) Three days later: got sick, and to leave Tokyo just before the second screening (2016)

Fun Story
- In February, my late evening flight got cancelled due to bad weather and I was left in Tokyo without accommodation. I spent the night watching clown themed movies in a movie theatre until 4:30 am while waiting for the first airport train.
