Atlas HQ has a lot of calendars. There’s a Shop Calendar, there’s a Holiday Shop Calendar, there’s an Editorial Calendar, there’s an Events Calendar, there’s a Field Guide Calendar. There’s a Social Media Calendar. There’s a Plant-Watering Calendar. I maintain a What DG Would Like For Lunch Calendar (every single square is filled out with the words “THAI OR INDIAN”).
And there are many more calendars, each of which is variously color-coded within the many-headed hydra that is Google. If I open up Google Calendars and turn on all of the calendars we maintain at the same time, my laptop suddenly becomes a Lite Brite. I repeat: it’s a lot of calendars.
The calendar that has been out of use for the past two years is currently the one that every single one of us here in the warehouse has open on our computers every day: the Vacation Calendar … because we’re going places this year. If you closely study the overlapping lines on the Vacation Calendar that indicate each of our separate vacations, you could learn a lot about Tetris strategy.
We’re all planning and dreaming. If someone in the warehouse asks me a question, I’m as likely to holler out “BEACH!” in response as I am an actual answer.
Once Field Guide No. 21 is packed up and mailed off (subscribers get theirs ahead of launch), this warehouse will look like Al Capone’s vault when Geraldo opened it: plum empty.
Ashley is headed for South Cackalacky, Hannah to Connecticut (wherever that is!), and Chris is Californy-bound. Allison is speaking in a French accent, so I think she’s going to Paris? I dunno because Beach Beach Beach Beach Beach Beach Beach Beach Beach.
The prize? A beach bag, er Skill Set Tote (because wherever you’re off to, you’ll want to bring some knitting)! And a copy of our smart, engaging, and portable how-to-knit and techniques reference book, Skill Set: Beginning Knitting. Tuck it into your bag for quick brush-ups on the basics or give it to a knitting-curious friend and make a new knitter.
