Tandem Post: Mumbai

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? ...No! It's Jonty! And with one scoop of the ball and full-on dive into the stumps, Imzamam Ul Haq was run out and Jonty Rhodes changed cricket fielding. For. Ever. Until that point i had kinda watched cricket a little bit and tried to pick a guy - Richard Snell - to be my guy. But to me it was this weird, alien confusing beast that kept getting [...]

Tandem Post: Tonight you’re mine, completely

i am loving being a part of this Tandem Blogging series with 8 other very creative and very different individuals. There is the dual satisfaction of having a very focused piece to write on a topic i didn't choose [which is incredible for creativity] and then also the thrill of bouncing from post to post once we've released them, to see how differently each writer interpreted the title each week. Last week was my favourite [...]

Tandem Post: Ninety-NinE

Pearls before Swine is my favourite comic strip as a lot of you know and i thought this was particularly apt as it introduces the topic of today's Tandem Blog post [where i, alongside 8 other bloggerists, get given a title and have to write whatever post it inspires] which is simply: = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = Ninety-ninE Nectarine, you ask? Well it does happen [...]

Tandem Post: The Art of Boredom

"THAT... IS COMPLETE AND UTTER... RUBBISH!" D muttered, before slamming the door on his way out. B hated his roommate! Oh sure, it had seemed like a good idea at the time. Move in with Death? Everyone had been completely jealous. What in the world could be more exciting than that? And to be honest, in the beginning it had been. The thrill of watching the sand slowly pouring through the hourglasses. Sneaking a quick peek [...]

Tandem Post: Magic Words

"But these words are Magic!" he said, and i think it was the gravelly emphasis that he placed on the "GIC" part of "maGIC" that caught my attention. Otherwise, i may well have escaped that encounter relatively unscathed. As it was, i did not. i was instantaneously curious... "What type of magic?" i asked, as if i was suddenly an expert on all the diverse varieties that existed. As if an hour before i had not [...]

Tandem Post: Revelations at Dawn

It had been another sleepless night for Michael, for the most part. Oh sure, there had been moments when he had drifted in and out of slumber, but the beasts awaiting him there had not made life any easier. Taunting him mercilessly with screeched out reminders of his shortcomings, spewed out revelations of the secret things only he knew about. The things no one else must ever know. Ever. Because Michael was a man of [...]

Tandem Post: Meeting The Queen

Two steps forward and then one to the right. I stand and wait, watching... guarding... carefully listening to my own heavy breathing... I try to remain focused completely on the spaces around me, watching for you, zoning out of the chatter and in on any nearby movement that may be about to occur. This time you will not get by me. I am ready, alert, prepared for the inevitability of your attack. One thing in mind, [...]
