If you made one this year, I'd buy it.

If not, then you have a whole year to shop around and get the best price, discover all the possible options, and make it just the way you like it.

I can wait until next year.

Geez. I wish I had mentioned it back in October or something.

 ;D

Did you mention it back in October, and I just missed it?   :-\  Hmph.  We're going to push for an 18 month calendar due out in July of 2010.  That'll be better anyway.  :)

Nope. Wasn't being sarcastic. Just wish I had mentioned it earlier so we could have a calendar this year instead of waiting until 2011. That's all.

I don't know if this is a "skill" to put on a calendar, but something about having a plan and sticking to it. 

Maybe that doesn't fit the skill-a-month format but I thought I'd throw it out there.
