Six Months Left!

I need to start working at this a little more since I only have six months left! I've accomplished 40 things so far and have 30 "in progress." There are several things that just aren't possible anymore (see The Ellen Show, replicate "The Kiss" in Times Square, etc.), but there are a lot I can still work on. Looks like I have my work cut out for me! 

This is just a updated version of the list with what I still need to do. If I ever do this again I'd like to be more organized—it sort of drives me crazy how scattered everything is. 
Start date: Saturday, January 1, 2010
Complete date: Saturday, September 28, 2012
Items crossed out are completed (40/101)
