Tom Cruise winked at me
I took a gamble, cut out two New Paper mastheads and won one of 188 exclusive invitations to the gala premiere in Singapore of "Vanilla Sky," with Cruise, Penelope Cruz and director Cameron Crowe in attendance. Then, reality sank in.
Oh my God, I was to be in the same movie theatre as Jerry Maguire, Ethan Hunt, Ron Kovic -- and his current muse, Spaniard Cruz (thatís the spoiler).
In the past couple of weeks, I have been notified thatBristol Eastern High School has a "mission statement" which addresses the many optimistic goals that have been set for the school.

It's not that much more believable than little greenmen in flying saucers, but I guess it could be true.
