Do you picture a calendar in your head, or am I just strange?

An am-I-alone-here-question: What does the calendar that you picture in your head look like? For as long as I can remember (or at least as long as I knew my months of the year), my mental calendar has always been monthly, and seemed to start with the month of August--maybe because I was born then, or maybe because the school year started around then.

The calendar just kind of continues on, one month next to the other, side by side, with January/February as kind of a halfway point. The end of the calendar is always in July, and then it just kind of starts over again in August. Think of a line of monthly calendar pages, all lined up, in just that arrangement. This is what I picture when I try to envision/plan for vacations I'm planning, pregnancies of relatives of friends, birthdays, etc. For what it's worth, the pages are always white. And it's not like a kitten or Far Side theme or anything.
Is this crazy? Do other people's mental calendars look similar, or do you picture something different? Do you even envision such a calendar?
