Hey, look, something worse than a calendar of dogs taking a dump to hang on your wall!




You can go on the Web & make your own calendar.



Years ago a friend’s roommate made her own weird calendar, she took a standard National Parks calendar and collaged in random images from National Geographic, so a picture of the Grand Tetons would have a fish floating in the sky, or a beach would have a gigantic monkey peering over the horizon. I have since stolen that idea and use it as a customized Xmas gift for some relatives.


I like the Toiletpaper one for September—not just am I looking at it right now(!); I can just look at it all month long :banana:


This is from last year, but my mum is part of the woman’s institute group that created a nude (knitted) calendar:


I’m pleased to see there a new Theodore Gray Elements calendar this year; they skipped 2018 for some reason.

Not sure if they’re still including the poster with it, though.


And, all together now:

There’s antimony, arsenic, aluminum, selenium,
And hydrogen and oxygen and nitrogen and rhenium,
And nickel, neodymium, neptunium, germanium,
And iron, americium, ruthenium, uranium,
Europium, zirconium, lutetium, vanadium,
And lanthanum and osmium and astatine and radium,
And gold and protactinium and indium and gallium,


Of course this has to be sung at the appropriate speed:
