That's not Superman you eejit-it's a rogue satellite!

Okay, so the defective US spy satellilte is expected to enter the earth's atmosphere on the 6th of March. Oooh, I can think of so many pompous people it ought to land on! Of course it could well annihilate yours truly instead, so am jotting down a to-do-before-I-die list with trembling fingers.

1. Eat more chocolate.

2. Eat even more chocolate.

3. Assiduously follow instructions in points 1 & 2.

Am currently reading David Davidar's The Solitude of Emperors (his take on communalism), and honestly, it wouldn't be such a bad thing if the end of the world was nigh! Too bad the satellite is merely the size of a bus.

this reminds me of a scene from the Truman Show.... where that bulky studio light crashes down from the empty sky above... surreal...
