One of my favorite tasks between Christmas and New Year's is choosing a calendar. I wait until they're 50% off, and then I choose whatever appeals most. This year it was Beatrix Potter. Last year, it was Patience Brewster. The year before that, Fun with Dick & Jane.
For this coming year, it's a mistake: I bought what I thought was a vintage ads calendar, but what I failed to notice is that the ads are actually inspirational messages. I don't like inspirational messages. Inspirational messages make me want to HIT the person who wrote them, then give him a screaming baby and a toilet brush and stand over him hitting him some more and demanding to know how he feels NOW about "cherishing every moment."
I would be interested to know how you choose your calendar each year, and what you've got lined up for 2008. I seem to be back in the market.
