New Thing #365: Penultimatron


Second-to-last New Thing! I pogo sticked! I wasn't sure this baby would arrive on time, but it did! It's definitely something you have to work on, but I get the gist of it and am pretty confident that once I change out of kitten-heeled boots and into a more athletic variety of footwear, I'll be able to leap tall buildings and transverse entire cities. Probably not in a single bound, because that would be boring.
Tomorrow: The very last New Thing! It's not exactly a birthday celebration, since my birthday is Wednesday. But it will be New Thing #366 (leap year!) and after it's done, I will sail calmly into my 30s.

Way to go Jen, Happy Birthday tomorrow!! I have been following you throughout most of your adventurous year, your blog is my first stop every weekday morning :) I can't wait to see what your final new thing will be! It has been so fun following you through this journey, you are such a great inspiration to us all. Have fun with your 30's!

Wow. I've been reading your blog since the CNN feature, and it's just going to be weird to not a new thing to read about every day. For some reason it seems almost a little creepy and stalkerish to continue reading your blog (if you're going to continue it) when you go back to every day life. Anyway, thanks for giving me something to smile about (almost) every day!

Hey, happy birthday - your blog has been so much fun. How about TWO years of new things? Huh? Please?

BTW, you mentioned recently you like/have done improv - do you know you and Alan Arkin have the same birthday?

Aw, it's your birthday?!? Well, I guess I'll have to go find something else to entertain me.

Thanks for the fun ride...it's been a real adventure following your new things.

HAPPY 30th Jen!!

Happy Birthay Jen.

That was a great year. Congratulations on achieving it.

I know I would never have made it through, it's a hell of an achievement.

I've been following your blog since the NPR interview, and I actually started my own project in January. (http://kathyat49.blogspot.com/ for shameless promotion!) Doing a "New Thing" every day has become part of my life; I can't imagine NOT doing one!

Won't life be boring next week?
