Calendar lovers: do you favor certain themes or motifs or subject matter in your annual choice of wall calendars?

Asked by Jeruba (44376points) November 19th, 2008

Choosing wall calendars for the year is one of my annual treats and indulgences. I require a minimum of six, strategically deployed around my environment, and I enjoy choosing them for others.

The master calendar goes in the kitchen (if it ain’t on the kitchen calendar, it ain’t happenin’). You can keep your electronic schedule; just give me a wall calendar with big spaces.

If you’re a regular calendar buyer, do you seek out certain types—art, travel, folksy, pets—and what are they?

I use a desk calendar. I have one now with birdies on it. I cut out the cutest ones and hang them up around the office. I have shadowing calendars, on-call calendars, company car calendars… I’d get a cute wall calendar, but all my co-workers would think I was calendar-crazy.

For all you lovers of GTD and cute design, check out this site with lots of nice templates for forms, cover sheets, calendars, etc.

At the mall by our house after thanksgiving (if not sooner) there is always a kiosk that sells nothing but calendars and my parents always pick one out for me and give it to me as a Christmas present, so I never get to pick :( but most of the times its pictures of the breed of dog I have.

A few years ago, my mom found a calendar entitled “Extraordinary Chickens” with pictures of interesting looking chickens for every month. Every year, we have to track it down, but now it’s a staple in our house and we love it!

@Katawa, I thought you were kidding (sounds like something in a Gary Larsen cartoon), but look!

i like cat calendars and i like calendars about artists and their art.

I like art calendars too, and I like beautiful scenery, like the National Geographic and Sierra Club ones, and unusual photography. I’ve also been known to go for LOTR and other literary themes.

@jeruba: haha, yep, that’s the calendar we get every year. It actually is quite interesting and inspired us to watch the chicken version of a dog show one year. It was a lot more competitive than one might think…

@Katawa…“watch the chicken version of a dog show…” boggles the mind. I didn’t even know there were TV shows for dogs. In the chicken version, chickens play dogs? Or the dog roles are voiced by chickens? or—dare I ask—they use subtitles? I’m not a TV watcher at all, so I can’t picture this, but I am appalled at the sheer poverty of my imagination.

Oh, wait…perhaps you meant a SHOW. Like for show dogs. Only for show chickens. Um…

@jeruba; Yes, I did mean like show dogs only with show chickens.

Don’t worry about getting words mixed up. The English language is filled with words that have dual meanings.

@Katawa: That’s what makes it so much fun. And also poetic.
