Taking a Michelle

Today has been five years to the dot since I started this space. It has been a slow last year, but I am going to convenience myself by referencing the dictum: quality is better than quantity. In the age of T20, my blog is hitting sixers (a.k.a. posts) with a frequency seen in test matches.

To continue with my cricketing analogy and to explain the title of the post, when bowlers take five wickets in an innings, it is called a five-for (which sounds similar to Pfeiffer, hence the reference to Michelle Pfeiffer). You are welcome :)

Thanks for being part of the journey. Looking forward to the next year!

:). You are funny! Your comparison to cricket is quite understandable. Both love conveniently mushed together? May you have many more five-for's!

Here's to many more, Parth. I think I have been reading your work for 3, 4 years now? It has certainly been a pleasure. :) Hopefully you'll reveal pictures of the little one here! I'm very curious.

Parth said...

@Pallavi: Thanks for the wishes.

@Vidya: Indeed, you have been around for several years, and hopefully will be around longer. Pictures of the little one: not in this public forum. I am very easy to find on Facebook. Find me there.

Congratulations, Parth! Always a delight to read your posts, and look forward to many more five-fors - michelles, if you prefer :)

Parth said...

@RTD2: Yay, I got the Beatles reference :)

@Niranjan: Thanks for the kind words :)

Hope you continue to write for many many more years to come! Looking forward to your posts, as always!

Parth said...

@Sneha: Thanks :)

@All: It struck me that maybe I wasn't really clear. 'Michelle' is a proper cricketing term btw. I wasn't making a joke, but enlightening you with cricket trivia :)

I don't know when exactly i started reading this space, but it's been a great ride (this post about you being the protagonist of your own life's act being my all time favourite)...Happy anniversary and wishes for many more Michelles (gotta admit, didn't know it was a proper cricketing term)...

Parth said...

@Radha: Thanks

@Frissko: Thanks for being around for such a long time, and extra thanks for remembering and quoting something I have written :)

How the hell did you come up with that! I came to your blog probably an year and a half ago and was really impressed by the quality of writing. I think it would not be out of place to say that your blog inspired me to try to write better :). Thanks.

@Ankit: I can assure I didn't come up with that. It is a well known cricketing term. Thanks for the support and hope to keep seeing you on this space.
