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.

I ate burritos all weekend

Yesterday I started with a couple small breakfast burritos (eggs and chorizo). Lunch was a prawn burrito and dinner was a simple cheese burrito and a honey burrito for desert.

On Saturday I unintenionally began eating burritos as my brother was helping me with my deck and wanted a burrito for lunch. Then Davis wanted a burrito later that night on our way back from a party so we stopped off for fish burritos.

More on burritos.

Later in the day

I had a basic bean and cheese burrito for lunch. Very simple. For dinner I made burritos for the family- with everything. I sauteed the onions and bell peppers, made guacomole, added sour cream, fresh salsa, black olives, tillamook cheddar, and refried pinto beans. Served them with some chips. Very good. Is this going to be made into an annual event? I could do this monthly!

Feeling OK

I cooked up some breakfast burritos for the family this morning, improvising a bit from a recipe found in Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone. It was basically cheesy scrambled eggs with cilantro, chili pepper, and scallions inside a warm flour tortilla topped with a little fresh salsa. Definitely an unusual breakfast at our house.

Lunch was a hurried affair since we needed to hit the road to Tacoma. I had a coconut curry “burrito” from Epic Gourmet foods. It may really have been more like a “wrap” than a burrito but it was close enough in my book, a tortilla filled with rice, tofu, veggies, coconut milk, basil, ginger, garlic, lime juice, spices, etc, that ate like a burrito.

Dinner was in Tacoma. I did a few quick searches for good burrito joints just before we left and hit upon La Fondita as a possibility. It turned out to be an OK place on Proctor near UPS with a family-friendly vibe. I ordered the veggie burrito (of course). This thing was very wholesome. A whole-wheat tortilla filled with brown rice, sauteed vegetables, black beans, and nothing sinful, no sour cream, no guacamole, not very much cheese. Thus, it was pretty boring and it didn’t leave me feeling over-stuffed. I was kind of looking forward to a super sloppy burrito to finish off the day, but I’m glad not to have that big-rubber-ball-in-the-gut bloated feeling afterward.

I would definitely do this again. I’ll be making a lot more breakfast burritos in the coming weeks. Thanks, Joe, for the inspiration!

First I lightly sauteed some onions, and orange bell peppers, in olive oil. Then I added two eggs, scrambled with milk. After cooking the eggs I sat them in a warmed flour tortillas, then added some Katrina’s fresh salsa, and grated tillamook cheese. Yum!

Stocked up on fixin's

since I will be home all day Sunday. I started to get some pork chorizo, for the breakfast burrito, but I read the ingredients list . It included pork cheeks, salivary glands and nymph nodes. I respect the honesty of the label, but had to put it back. I’ll just have a breakfast burrito that is a little less authentic.

Burrito Day is Sunday!

This is it folks, we’re in the final stretch before burrito day. I’ve been in a serious training regimen, with a huge uptick in burrito consumption. Burrito Evangelists are roaming the city, spreading the burrito gospel. You can almost taste the guacamole in the air around here.

On Sunday, there are two burrito events you can join:

1. Volunteer at a food bank, then go out to lunch (10:30am)
2. Potluck dessert burrito party at the Alibi Room (8:00pm ish)

Hope to see you there!
