I’m tickled pink by 5050

India
April 29, 2009 5:51am CST
I just reached 5050 posts and I was looking at this number and suddenly I started laughing. 5050…oh! What a number, it means half chance either way and is also the name of a favourite biscuit of mine (Britannia 5050 which is salt n sugar in taste). Believe me, here in mylot I’ve reached quite a few ‘milestones’, but this is the best…in fact I’m enjoying this number so much that I don’t want to respond and break this magic number! I am still thinking if any other number written in the numerical way has some other significance other than its value? Do you have any favourite numerical milestones?

Heartiest Congratulation to you Sudipta on achieving the magic figure of 5000. I agree with you that it feels great to touch the magic figure of 5000 posts and I have noticed that those who have touched the figure are very few (as far as the members from India are concerned). I can say it with conviction that you are one of the best mylotters here (I do not have any official trophy for it to award it to you). You are always consistent and meaningful in your responses and you speak your heart out, while discussing a post here. I have found you that you show due devotion and keeness, while writing down your responses or comments. I am proud and lucky to be one of your friends here. Hope you touch many more milestones in your journey of mylot and may you scale many more such heights. All the very best. Well done.

Deepak, as always, you are always a pleasure to know as a friend. Many thnks for congratulating. Friends like you are the gift of mylot and believe me when I say my life has been truly enriched by you all. However, I really want to know if you know of any other number which has some other significance.

We are blessed to have a friend like YOU! I cannot think of any similar number. However, 7777/8888/9999/11111 may be such numbers which you can put in special category.

Hi friend, I can see where u r coming from. Same here I am always tickled by the number 1212, because it is my birthday and my lucky number. I tested positive on 1212 for my pregnancy. The best gift i have ever received on my birthday.

yummmmmmmmm I just love this biscuit and its other variant, Maska Chaska. Mylot is such a journey that the travel itself is the effort and the reward. I was not looking at 5000 as some milestone, but when I reached 5050 as I said, I started laughing coz I saw it not as five thousand fifty but as 50/50 and that biscuit of course. I really wanted to know if you have any such special numbers and its significance

When I was little I would fight with my step dad over who got to be # 1 because to be #1 was to be the best. After him and my mom divorced I developed a thing with odd numbers. Every time I go somewhere with someone and the seats are numbered I have to sit in the odd numbered seat. Every time I heat something up in the microwave I have to set the timer to an odd number. The last time I saw my step dad, (7 years ago) I was making him my daughter pick a number between 1 and 20 to decide where we were going to dinner. She said # 7 (because she knows its always 7) and my step dad picked # 1. When I told him he was wrong he asked what happened to always wanting to be the best. I told him # 11 is my favorite number now because its odd and its the best displayed twice. He shook his head and just laughed at me. lol

Oh Cyn, dear its such a pleasant surprise to hear from you now and then...everytime I thnk Cyn's too busy to be mylotting, you just drop in an reassure me A little update on me, since I have always been running to you with my probs...my son's been promoted to Std V and for the moment, he's become pretty serious. Otherwise both hubby and me are just managing in this sweltering Indian summer I have a fascination with the no. 9 simply because its the only number than can be read upside down and also maybe I'm born in September Anyway, do drop in and I am sure everything's OK with your family with a superbly wonderful person like you at the helm

Judging from the number beside your name... you already decided to break this number... well, i hope you enjoyed that number to the fullest before responding to a certain discussion... i felt like that when i turned 17... i never wanted to reach 18 because i was so enjoying my life at that age... but alas... i turned 18 and could never turn back time... i only have those beautiful memories to remember 17 by...
