Hey I finally completed another item on my list of trying 50 new things before I'm 50.
Admittedly, it wasn't too big of a stretch. I tried a new type of yogurt. I'd been hearing a lot about the benefits of Greek yogurt, and since I had a coupon I bought a couple containers.
I brought it into work today and tried it. And my first reaction was "yuck," but I stuck it out to the end and I guess it's okay.
I tried the strawberry fruit on the bottom variety. If it had more strawberries it would have been more palatable to me. And it might have been better if I hadn't read the other ingredients in advance. The included less than 1% of corn starch, lemon juice concentrate, kosher gelatin and vegetable juice (for color). Apparently the strawberries weren't strawberry colored enough on their own.
I have another container of the stuff at home. The next goal is to actually eat it before the expiration date.
By the way, I'm making this list up as I go along..so if you have any ideas for me, let me know!
Okay..I've figured out the second new thing I'm going to do before I turn 50 next year.
I'm giving something up for Lent. Now I'm not exactly what you call a practicing Catholic (hence never giving anything up for Lent). But I figure a 40-day period seems do-able.
I'm giving up french fries. You'd think now that most fries are trans-fat free, why would I want to do that?
Just to see if I can.
Since I come from potato country in central Wisconsin, this may seem like inappropriate..but don't worry. I'm not giving up hash browns.
Or tater tots.
Stay tuned...I'll let youÂ know how I did just after Easter.
And by the way, I'm still looking for ideas for more new things to try before I'm 50.Â So feel free to make suggestions!
I hate to admit it, but I'm turning 50 next year. And I've decided to go on a little journey of personal growth before I get there next February, by trying 50 new things before I'm 50.
I've already completed one--by emceeing an event on my own, and that went pretty well. That was 3 weeks ago..so I've got to get going on this, and that's where I need your help. Do you have any suggestions?
They don't necessarily have to be physical accomplishments..like competing in Iron Man, or walking up all the stairs on a downtown parking ramp without getting out of breath.
And they don't have to be death-defying either. I've already jumped out of an airplane, and I'm not interested in bungee jumping.
Preferably I'd like the new things to be either fun or involve some kind of personal growth.
My friend Adam just emailed me somebody's bucket list of 530 items...and I can tell you I won't be doing some of them.Â I'm not going to read the complete works of Shakespeare, because I have a thing against iambic pentameter.
And I'm pretty sure I'm not going to win a Nobel prize, build a gazebo, or become a Charlie Sheen intern any time soon either.
Do you have any suggestions? Feel free to share them here!

Today's World's Worst iPod came from the category of "80s sap." Jack Wagner's "All I Need" was number two for a couple of weeks in early 1985 (it would have been #1 if not for that pesky Madonna and her "Like a Virgin" song).
Oh, spring, you dirty little flirt. You gave us a taste of your sunshine and warmth yesterday, but now you are gone, faster than doughnuts in the breakroom of a radio station.
Are you as ready for spring as I am? Take my little test and see.
I am addicted to Pharrell Williams' song "Happy," and I didn't think I could like it any more than I already did.
Until I saw this video. Yeah, it's pretty shallow humor, but it put a smile on my face! Andthat's not something...
Critics have been saying some good things about the new biographical Jimi Hendrix movie that's debuting at SXSW later this month.
For one thing, Jimi: All Is By My Side comes from film-maker John Ridley, who wrote the screenplay for the much...
