Save the date

The last day of 2011. Blogs are filled with the year in review, ‘best of’ lists, and previews of what’s to come.

Me? I’m just psyched about my new calendar.

We may be living in a digital world, carrying our lives around on our smartphones, but I still love selecting the wall calendar that hangs over the desk in my home office.

It used to be a no-brainer — the New Yorker dog cartoons calendar every year. And then they stopped making it two years ago.


So now I journey to Barnes & Noble, not knowing what calendar on the racks and spinners before me will catch my eye. But this year’s selection was an exciting combination of all the things I hold most dear:

Dogs. Movies. Celebrities. Kitch.

Yeah, that’s a cat. But he wasn’t dressed up for the photo. All the Jack Sparrow-ness was digitally added later.

There’s also Andy Warhol. And Austin Powers. Dame Edna. Mother Teresa.

Yep. It’s gonna be a good year.

    There is a 2011 edition — I’m just taking it off my wall now. But the 2012…you’re right — I can’t seem to find a word about it anywhere (except here on your blog!)

    Are you sure they’ve put an end to it? Any idea why?? At whom do we snarl and show our teeth ?

    • I couldn’t find the 2011 edition anywhere — lucky you! And when I went online in search of this year’s, I could only find editions up to 2010. All I could find was a general New Yorker wall calendar.

      If you find out otherwise, please let me know! 🙂
