deja vu

it seems like everything is coming to one big circle again. enguhland did not qualify and john howard finally got the kick out. it was in the mid-90s that these 2 incidents last happened and time was great before then. not being a superstitious bloke, but it seems to be doing the law of karma here.

ok enough about nonsensical news. i was a hugely relived man this past week. for, due to naivety and carelessness, i did not change my address and thus was not informed about my in camp training. lo and behold, i was charged with awol and had to face the officers in camp to state my case. i heard from quarters that this was a very serious case and minimum charges were for offenders to be sent to d.b. for at least 3 days. for 2 weeks, i was in a state of disarray thus affecting my performance at the new place. thankfully, due to a very considerate officer, i was let off with a severe warning and nothing else. advise for others: update your particulars religiously and don’t trust to call the duty camp officer to change any particulars.

when mirrormask came out 2 years back, sarip was the so very stoked, possibly due to the endless publicity in the anticipation of neil gaiman’s first (major) movie feature. so, it came to a surprise that not much was said upon when stardust came out. the only (relatively) buzz that was heard of is about michelle’s pfeiffer’s comeback, that’s all.

it was not expected much really going to watch this. from the trailer itself, it looks superficial as it seems to parade it’s “bigger” stars more than the movie itself. sarip thoughts were this will just be another platform for most of us to just go with the flow to see familiar faces on the screen.
