We spotted partners Liz King (left) and Judith Powell (right), toughing the weather in cute coats and distressed boots, while out for a shop on Market St. Liz works retail development and oversees some of the construction of Apple stores, and Judith is the executive director of The First Tee of SF, a youth development program. When they're not hard at work, the two are busy shopping and eating local, in SF and beyond.
I am a huge fan of Inside the Actor's Studio (I am also, relatedly, a huge fan of Will Ferrell's impression of James Lipton). The pensive moments, the long pauses, the seeming sincerity—good stuff.

Sometimes you're in a movie theater and you make one too many snarky remarks to your movie companion and the humorless person in front of you whips her head around to glare at you or shush you. Which is totally unfair because sometimes you have something way too witty to say to wait till after the movie, and sometimes you need your companion to know that you already know what's about to happen. The worse the movie is, the harder it is to restrain yourself.
