Now that's just about ideal. The only thing better might be making my own Bittman calendar, from my saved recipes from his columns/blogs. But then they wouldn't be brand new to me. Thus I'd need two, the one you bought, and my own custom calendar. Let's see, one for the fridge, one for the cookbook shelves..
I like calendars quite a lot - enjoy being picky about the photography, graphics, etcetera - but have stopped buying them. I've saved a few old ones, not just for business or tax or diary purposes, but for the photos or drawings. Have a 1997 one of Italy engravings up in the guest bathroom, which just confirms to guests that I'm confused about time.
