Today I was at Book Buyers in Mountain View with a friend, and I noticed that their 2016 wall calendars had started to come in. I grabbed my usual mindfulness calendar to hang by my desk and then went looking for one for the kitchen. (Yes, they're like 15 feet apart. I actually use them both. Don't judge.) Then I stumbled on this one and my head exploded. "Oh my god, this is so aggressively girly that I have to have it," I told my friend. Seriously, look at those photos, it's ridiculous. I love it. So next year I get to look at all these heteronormative gender-normative versions of romantic imagery, and I'm going to enjoy the shit out of it. The mindfulness calendar can hang out by the phone table, it's all good.

And ha! They were 40 percent off.

p.s. Support your local independent bookstore, yo.

p.p.s. (O HAI STUPID BRAIN TRICKS, VERY FUNNY, I've been misusing heteronormative for like freaking ever because I obviously misremembered the proper definition. Yay?)

The linkie goes to a calendar that, yes, has tons of very romantic pictures and text. But I don't see anything specifically hetero about any of it - what am I missing?

You've welcome! (And now I'm curious as to what you thought it meant…)

(gah. never mind - didn't go back and read the correction. I guess girly is in the eye of the beholder?)

Ah. I'd kind of chalked that up to general rose-colored glasses… but, yes, it's awfully pink.
