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.

If Barbie

were a brunette we would have had some fun harassing the boys together! ;)

I have a beautiful red

sweater that I adore! My friend told me it should be my signature color!

Then when we were talking she said I was a winter – dark hair, blue eyes, fair skin – I can wear the jewel tones so well.

She helped people find their colors back in the 80’s. She is right!

Bold colors do look fabulous on me ~

I heard this song this morning ~ it made me smile


I’m a girl, and by me that’s only great!
I am proud that my silhouette is curvy,
That I walk with a sweet and girlish gait
With my hips kind of swivelly and swervy.

I adore being dressed in something frilly
When my date comes to get me at my place.
Out I go with my Joe or John or Billy,
Like a filly who is ready for the race!

When I have a brand new hairdo
With my eyelashes all in curl,
I float as the clouds on air do,
I enjoy being a girl!

When men say I’m cute and funny
And my teeth aren’t teeth, but pearl,
I just lap it up like honey
I enjoy being a girl!

I flip when a fellow sends me flowers,
I drool over dresses made of lace,
I talk on the telephone for hours
With a pound and a half of cream upon my face!

When men say I’m sweet as candy
As around in a dance we whirl,
It goes to my head like brandy,
I enjoy being a girl!

When someone with eyes that smoulder
Says he loves ev’ry silken curl
That falls on my iv’ry shoulder,
I enjoy being a girl!

When I hear the compliment’ry whistle
That greets my bikini by the sea,
I turn and I glower and I bristle,
But I happy to know the whistle’s meant for me!

I’m strictly a female female
And my future I hope will be
In the home of a brave and free male
Who’ll enjoy being a guy having a girl… like… me.

Finally I think I've found it!

A pink nail polish that works with my skin tones! It is made by maybelline called Pink Paradise!

Looks really springy . . . ahhh My new color for the week.

Yesterday I bought

a beautiful cream winter white skirt and jacket for Easter. Now I have to find a really pretty camisole and shoes to match.

This is so much more fun than wearing black all of the time!

It just caught my eye!

I bought a lovely frosted peach nail polish and lipstick today. But when I got it home I realized it isn’t the right color for me.

Before I had my colors done I would have worn it just because I thought it was pretty. Now I’ll give it to a friend that it will look fabulous on.

I must remember pale frosted polish is not for me no matter how pretty it looks in the bottle.

I bought a cherry red enamel and matching lipstick a couple of weeks ago that look beautiful!

Oh what a beautiful feeling . . .

MY SO’s mother has been cleaning out her closet for years giving me some very nice clothing, shoes, purses, etc. If I didn’t take them they would go to the upscale resale shop near her.

This weekend when she offered me some lovely knit pants and jacket I had to say no thank you. They were to big.

I've had my colors done

Now that I am feeling sexy and no longer in mourning – this will be a colorful spring!

This is so exiting! Love the jewel colors – purples, forest greens, royal blues but most of all ruby reds!

Goodbye dowdy blacks! Hello fabulous sexy reds!!!

Where is my ipod?

This is sooo exciting! I have actually fit into a dress 2 sizes smaller than I was a month ago! The top fits perfect but the bottom is still a little tight…putting on my walking shoes! Time to hit the road to a fabulous summer!

I feel pretty, oh so pretty...

Today I am going to emphasize sexy and go through my closet. Anything that makes me look or feel frumpy is going into the box that goes to Goodwill.

No more wearing things that make me feel bad – only things that make me feel pretty.
