Can't assign a function to a specific element using jQuery

This works in regular javascript:

var mdiv = document.getElementById("mydiv"); mdiv.myUpdateUI = function () {

alert('works'); Code to update div here


This doesn't do anything when I try: $("#mydiv).myUpdateUI = function () {

alert('doesn't work'); Code to update div here


While I understand there is a $.fn ability, the "myUpdateUI()" method would only ever apply to that one object, so putting it in ALL of jQuery seems wrong.

I searched before posting, but didn't find anything. Thanks for your time. jQuery is great BTW.
