New Day #365

Contrary to the number of the post, this is not the last day of this project because a) 2008 was a leap year and b) I miscounted last January, thus screwing up the whole numbering system. The last day will be Sunday with #367, followed by a wrap-up on Monday and an announcement of my next project.

In the meantime, I must admit that I still regret the day five months ago that I failed to do anything new. It's not like I didn't have the opportunity; I could have removed a security tag from clothes, but I failed to seize the moment.

The memory haunts me still.

But today I was in Macy's for some post-Christmas shopping (where I found a truly magnificent hoodie for twenty bucks, btw). So I went to the counter...

...and got to remove a security tag!

Truly, there are no words. It was just as satisfying as I thought it would be. It even made a little ka-chung sound.

Naturally, I didn't have my camera because I left my coat in the car so I wouldn't have to schlep it around the store. Because that's the kind of serious post-Christmas shopper I am.

But here's a photo of another New Thing, which I'm including here to even up the score. Floyd and I were immortalized in clay for the first time when we received this custom ornament from a reader (

I've always wanted to be considered ornamental.

This is a lovely ornament, but nothing can top the Bert and Ernie shampoo containers!

Lovely ornament.
Notice Floyd´s image has no hair, but Yours has Dark Hair.!!!
Hoping to see your beautiful greys again this next year.
