As is my custom, a new year requires new challenges. This year, I am challenging myself to engage and complete 12 activitives (1 per month) I’ve never done before. Photographic evidence to follow. After all if two heterosexual hot girls made out at a club and no one saw it, are they really bisexual? Hmm? Are they?
January – Eat bugs & learn how to swim. I have to learn how to swim for my May challenge anyway so I didn’t think it was fair to list that as a challenge even though technically it is. So just to push myself a bit further, I decided to stand behind my words - I’ve always told people that I’d try anything once and I’ve always encouraged my 4 yr old niece and 6 yr old nephew to try new foods. Well during a visit to a candy store in Los Gatos called Powell’s Sweet Shoppe, I came across crickets & ants & larvae. All of which made me shudder and squirm. And because of that very reaction, it’s something I know I have to do.
February – Register to be a bone marrow donor
March – Build a snowman complete with carrot nose & top hat
April – Hold a tarantula and let it crawl from one hand to another
May – Wildflower Triathlon
June – Do a 6000 piece puzzle. I’m thinking Creation of Man by Michaelangelo seen here
August – Walk completely nude at a nude beach & have a picnic
Sept – Dig for clams
October - Visit New York City
November – Milk a cow. But now that everything is high-tech, I can’t imagine where I’d be able to do this in the Bay Area. Any suggestions?
December – Ride a mechanical bull
