    SO Subtle.

  2. You missed at least one though
    “January 27th Was Derby Day”
    January 27 was Derby Day

    Just trying to do my part

  3. Queen of Dork says:

    The hamster in picture 4 caused me to have a little episode of melting and other things. I’m off now to get some paper towels to clean up the parts of my head that sort of blew up.

  4. earlybird1 says:

    The behbeh orangutan in pic #5 looks mighty unhappy about being monched by a bun. He’s all, “HALLLLLP!! HALP MEH!”

  5. earlybird1 says:

    And the beagle pup is looking like, “Ruh roh, I’m next!”

  6. JohnnyJohnny says:

    I was at BJ’s Wholesalers yesterday and noticed the calender display was a mess so I cleaned it up by moving all the CO calenders to the front of the rack. They’re just so dam cute!

    /just doing my part.

  7. Queen of Dork says:

    Yay for JohnnyJohnny!

  8. The way Lucy’s grabbing on to her treat shows that she means business.

  9. Mary (the first) says:

    Who you callin’ “Poeple” ???

  10. I bought, I bought!

  11. Ahh, the ghost of puppyhood past.

  12. Big puppeh eyes!

  13. AuntieMame says:

    I think the bun in pic #4 is enjoying it the most. 🙂

  18. China's Human says:

    My copy of the wall-calendar arrived on Friday! Yippeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

  19. dr. berthaservant says:

    I don’t know why it took me so long to order…maybe I was just waiting for this awesome post. (I ordered two).

    (and yes, the new name is official).

    [Well congratulations, Doctor! May your screwdrivers be forever sonic. – Ed.]

  20. I already have mine tucked away behind the final days of the ’09 calendar! It makes every morning a little more shiny!

  21. catloveschanel says:

    Take me to your leader……….

  22. Congrats to DR. Berthaservant! Drinks on me at the Snickering lounge!

  23. Wasn’t it Marcel Proust who wrote “Remembrance of Puppehhoods Past”? Well, he should have. ❤

  24. My in-laws have a tradition of giving page-a-day calendars for Hanukkah. Well guess which calendar I got this year!!!! Yippeeeee!

  25. oh, and congratulations Dr Berthaservant!! (or should we just call you Dr. BS ❤ ❤ <3)

  26. And let us not forget that with the page-a-day and wall versions we can all have twice the Cute-i-tude in 2010. My husband and I now have a tradition – he buys me the page-a-day for my office and I gave myself the wall calendar for my home office. Now I’m surrounded by cute – whether the old computer’s on or not!
    Fab to see the doggies next to their puppy-selves. Too sweeat!

  27. I got the page a day, but now, I want the monthly wall calendar too!!!

    Congrats, Dr. BS!! :mrgreen:

    [Something about that feels contradictory to me, somehow. 😕 – Ed.]

  28. 5^^now8ing says:

    Congrats, DOCTOR berthaservant!! (Dr. BS – snerk!) I’ll join you in the Snickering Lounge for a toast! May I ask what your new doctoritude is of?

  29. Mary (the first) says:

    I also congrat Dr. BS and will join all in the snickering lounge for whatever’s being served as long as it’s not coconut (shudder). In honor of the occasion I hope we’ll be told, Dr. of what, exactly?

    [Doctor of Philosophy. With a poster of Rasputin, and a beard down to his knee. – Ed.]

  30. omg, to whoever made the calendar box into a hammy-house… you ROCK!!!

  32. Adding my congrats to Dr. of Qte Berthaservant!
    I got my calendar weeks ago…. but think I must order the wall calendar too.
    @Derby – looks like your bun approves of his disapproving photo!

  33. Queen of Dork says:

    Huge Congratulations to Dr. Berthaservant! That must have been a tremondous amount of hard work and YOU DID IT!!!!!!! (throwing confetti and streamers!)

  34. You need more chinchillas! The one in the book with a snake on top just isn’t going to cut it! 🙂

  35. I am redonkulously delighted to report that a friend (who is an exceedingly clever and astute friend) gave me the page-a-day for my birthday!!!!

  36. :: entering stage left ::

    hi, my name is Jessica, and I own the Cute Overload Page A Day Calendar for 2010. My office secret santa thought I’d “probably love it”, not knowing that I was a drooling, giggling lover of the site.

    :: close up ::

    People, I think I can say without fear of contradiction that if you don’t own this calendar, you will not be able to know what day it is. That’s a fact, and it’s endorsed by the AMA. Please buy this calendar for your kids, for your mom, for your grab bag…. :: cue music ::


    Thank you.

  37. Just got all excited when a friend dropped off a CO page-a-day calendar for me . . . the perfect gift! . . . and then I noticed it is for 2009. ** sigh** I guess I need to be more specific when I request it for Christmas.

  38. snoopysnake says:

    snoopysnake loves that snakie!

  39. I got mine today!! Went to B&N and bought two of them, and will go back to get a third box calendar… Meg, I couldn’t get the wall calendar or book because they were sold out!!!! 🙂

  40. want! does anyone know if this can be bought in the UK?

  41. I have gone to 3 stores for the boxed calendar and it is SOLD OUT evvvvvverrrryyywhere!!!

  42. “It took me years to build this pyramid” LOL! (Really!) – pic #7.

    My favorite is the little Chinchilla, in pic#8. It’s like he is presenting the green egg to you, while nervous (ears sticking up and the little, little, little, little, little, little, feets, feets, feets, feets, close, close, close, together, together … NOMNOMNOMNOMNOMNOMNOMNOMNOM OMG CuteOverload YOU REALLY DID IT TO ME THIS TIME! I’M *DED*

    Um, thank you! 🙂

  43. I swear to God Almighty that I did not notice that the Chinchilla pic mentioned above was for Feb. 22 (my birthday) until afterwards. Happy birthday, indeed!

    Actually, the C.O. calendar can benefit -anyone’s- birthday, or any other special day, for anyone. Really, it is one of those things in this world to which one cannot find any objection, unless he is sadistic.

  44. mine is extremly awesome.
    maybe i shouldnt look into it yet because its for 2010
    im so eager
    oh well

  45. resriechan says:

    Crimson — look up at this page heading. There’s a subheading /Index /Tab thinggie that says “Calendars”….unable to verify who has it IN STOCK / not sold out….

    however….that tab has click tabs to webpages such as Barnes/Noble & Amazon & (I’m presuming here but) I hope that one of those webpages includes a place that operates in / with Britain???????

    Give it a look — best of luck & happy Holiday Season to ya.


  46. Got mine yesterday! I’m so glad there’s a Glossary in the beginning; hubby knows, now. 🙂

  47. I can’t wait to get one. It doesn’t get any cuter.

  48. CO will be happy to know that Borders is SOLD OUT! Me, not so happy.

    Congrats to you guys. How about CO mugs, t-shirts and pet food next year??? Oh the possibilites…. I’d buy everything, I’m powerless to the QTE.

  49. I got one for Christmas by my lovely friends 🙂
    They actually found it in a store too, so they didn’t have to order online and worry about getting it in time!

  50. resriechan – thanks for the info. most of those sites are u.s. only but there is one person selling the calendars on amazon uk. one shall be mine soooooon! *glee*

  51. Where in heck would we all be without Cute Overload and cute animals in general? In a very bad place, I tell you. VERY BAD indeed!
