This year I'm doing what I did in every other year, choosing the one I want to hang on the wall. The selection is not as difficult as some might think. Puppies and kittens and all things whimsical aren't on the list. I don't do cute well.
For a number of years I bought the Cycling magazine calendar with photographs by Graham Watson. If you like cycling it is well worth the money. But not this year.
I thought maybe I'd put up a little skin, not porn mind you. I did that one year, it was nice, but every now and then I get a comment which was more like a snigger then a comment. Anyway, Dieux de Stade puts out a very classy calendar, skin but not porn. I thought I might buy one until I saw the $50 price tag. While I do tend to save my calendars, I do think that's a little too pricey for something I'm going to file away next January.
I ended up going with the Warwick Rowers. It's skin but not porn and more humorous then serious. When I have to get up at 3:30 AM to go open the store, this is something is something I won't mind looking at when I sit down at my desk to check my email. After I'd placed my order I realized I had actually bought some whimsical skin.
