macdobhran: Whoop Ass (Dr. Horrible - Brand new day)
Welcome to 2011. The advent of a new year means new calendars. You read that right. Calendars. Plural.

When I was selecting my annual calendar purchases I found two that I really liked and I couldn't decide between them. So, I bought them both.

The first one is The Zombie Survival Guide page-a-day calendar. It's based on the New York Times best-seller of the same name by Max Brooks. From the back of the box:

There's no time to lose. It could happen at any moment. It may have already begun. Everyone must prepare for the zombie apocalypse. "Other monsters may threaten individual humans, but the living dead threaten the entire human race. Zombies are slate wipers," warns author Max Brooks.

Based on the best-selling book of the same name, this daily calendar provides on every page valuable information needed to survive a zombie outbreak: the most effective weapons, combat techniques, how to adapt in any situation, and so much more. Be vigilant. Zombie are coming, and they're hungry!

The second calendar I picked for this year is Jeopardy! page-a-day calendar.

It's time to play Jeopardy! Just like the hugely popular TV show, the Jeopardy! 2011 Calendar has a unique answer-and-question format. Each week features Jeopardy! and Double Jeopardy! categories with assigned "dollar" amounts and a Final Jeopardy! round where players can wage all or part of their "winnings."

I'm not sure what it says about me that I was drawn to a quiz show and the undead, and it's probably best not to dwell on it, but it should make for a fun year of posts!
