Shoplet asked me to take a look at a desk calendar, I figured okay, but it probably wouldn't fit. Wrong. The desktop calendar from House of Doolittle is a perfect fit, but without being too small. It has nice roomy boxes for each day where I record student notes, doodle a bit to pass time and make sure meetings don't get missed. The paper is a nice quality from recycled material. I like that it feels a bit thicker than normal allowing me to write with most all of my pens and markers, except the Sharpies - too much bleed through there. One of the things with past desk calendars that have annoyed the picky side of me is that once they are on my desk for a bit they start to curl on the bottom edge and come out of the corner tabs. I haven't had it on my desk really long yet but the thicker paper may help with the curling problem. Also the corner tabs, which are a really pretty navy color, are larger than usual. I like this calendar. It is as attractive as a desk pad type calendar needs to be and more importantly, it is "comfortable". The boxes are large enough for notes and there is a section down the right side for additional scribblings. Also pleasant is the color of the ink used to print this calendar - a nice tone of blue and gray inks.
