Holiday Gift List

My friend who teaches at Hunter clued me in to this calendar on Lulu: A cool calendar to benefit scholarships for Hunter College students with cool, strange NYC photographs. 16 professors dressed up as famous literary characters in decidedly contemporary settings. Here's the product description:
What if Gulliver traveled to New York today? Would he hang out on Wall Street? Would Macbeth's witches romp in Central Park? Beautifully photographed by Ben Kelly, this calendar imagines major literary characters come to life in New York City. The photos feature English professors from Hunter College posing as characters such as Janie from "Their Eyes Were Watching God", Juliet from "Romeo and Juliet", and T.S. Eliot's "J. Alfred Prufrock," set against the vibrant backdrop of New York City.
All for only $16. A fun & unusual Christmas gift for a reader....

I'll leave it to you to guess which model is my dear friend!

The matter of genuine gordonii against false lida takes place, as there are about 20 diverse varieties of lida daidaihua, but merely the gordonii variety is whispered to be a hunger suppressant. It is tough to produce. The blossoms stink like decomposing mutton.
