Best laid plans

Right, so everyone knows what happens to those. But even those that aren't laid that well do often go awry. Case illustrating the above point is obviously my plans of meeting some of my friends who are very soon going to disappear from the face of the country. Well, not this one, but anyway.

I think I've fretted and fumed enough already about missing movies in theatres 'cos of my offshore trips, especially when Ice Age 2 and V released in Kolkata days after I left last time. I ended up watching both on the last flight to Perth :|. While V was clearly not worth the fuss I was making over it, The Meltdown just as clearly was!! I think I rather annoyed the chap sitting beside me with my convulsive laughter :D. Tried to keep it silent, but I dunno how well that worked eventually :P.Anyway, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest was releasing in India again just after I was leaving, so I went looking for release dates in Aussie, and sure enough, it'd already released here on the 6th! Now unlike Indian cinemas, those in Perth have extremely detailed and more importantly, reliable info up on the net! So I hatched plans to catch a show in the familiar Hoyts multiplex in downtown, 2 minutes from the place I'd stayed in on my last visit :). Trouble was, the crew party in Fremantle meant I could only catch the late night show. Fortunately I even had company!!

I hadn't counted on the 3 hr runtime though, and when we emerged at half past midnight, my friend having spent a better part of that time comfortably curled up on the seat /:), I thought we were rather lucky to get a cab as easily as we did. Not to mention the peppermint :|. And of course the 6 hrs of sleep in two days didn't come in handy at all as I landed up at the wrong end of a 12 hr shift... But hey, at least the movie was good :D.

And this time I have a cabin all to myself \:D/. Oh, and the post-World Cup discussions are in full swing, with hilarious consequences :D.

Current Mood: happy! (shift's almost over :P)

"But even those that aren't laid that well do often go awry"
