50 New Things
This year I'm going to try to do at least 50 things I've never done before (I did not come up with this idea...but they say imitation is the highest form of flattery ;-). If you have ideas, feel free to make suggestions. I'll document them on the list below, with links if possible.
36. Played craps and roulette for the first time at a casino.
35. Visited the world's largest bead store (Shipwreck Beads).
34. Drove over a floating bridge
33. Flew in a helicopter!!
32. Visited Mount St. Helen's - wanted to see this for the past 30 yrs
I found a fun new application today, let's you posterize yourself in the style of the iconic Obama "Hope" poster. Go to obamiconme.com.
And if that wasn't good enough, today my new boots came in.
Admittedly, I have great boots from my Antarctica trip, but they are overkill for a whole day - which is the length of time I have to wear 'em on teaching days because I don't have a place to store them. These are much lighter-weight.
Plus...they have skulls all over them (in case you can't make out that fact from the picture). They are even better than the pair I bemoaned missing out on two Decembers ago.
