Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

- The Robots.

being Julianne Moore

So I’d be Julianne Moore, except for the hair, the body and the face. I’d wear that bewitching black and white dress and I would play the fierce and confident woman.

No, no, wait . I can do better. I’d be Julian Moore except for the hair, the body and the face. I’d be wearing that censurable dress and the blinking of my eyelids would make the earth turn backward.

No, no wait. Even better . I’d be Julian Moore. Except for the hair, the body and the face. I’d walk like a feline in that sinful sheath, and I’d be accursed poet Charles Baudelaire’s muse.

No, no, no wait. Beaudelaire is still in the picture. I’d be Julianne Moore. Naked.

red alert

Today, some kind of bloke told me ” your new hairdo looks like Janet Frame ’s character in – “an angel at my table-”. Well, I took it as a compliment. Everything linked to Janet Frame is cool. I may even dye my mane red. Someday.

afraid ?

I may just wear a black dress, vertiginous V neck. I already have the hairdo. And I will say to whoever wants to hear : ” Who is afraid of Virginia Woolf, George ? I’am”.

La belle affaire.

I’ll keep it simple and focus like Faye Dunaway in the Thomas Crown affair, with white pants and beige sweater. Or maybe I’ll just wear that “are you sure you want to interrupt my coffee break” attitude .

Tupelo honey dream

Then, one of those very useless remarks came to my mind, between the cheese and the desert : “if someone wore a dress inspired from Tippi Hedren yellow outfit, would she be looked at as if she was Honey ?”. I’ll check.

la vie en rose

Challenge 1 : Get a all pink, head to toe, outfit. Legally blonde inspired.
Challenge 2 : build enough self-confidence to believe that people will still listen to my speeches as I ‘ll be standing there, before them, dressed like a candy store.
