      If you had ANY idea of the degree to which I am pleased with this… you would probably feel bad for me.

      I feel it is my greatest achievement. 🙂

    What?! Tyson and I just finished Season 5 last night. I can’t wait for the premier… There is suppose to be miles of polyester and sideburns! I was so excited by your blog title; Roger has the best lines! I was eager to share all things Mad Men with you hear and now I have to wait?!!

    I’m going to go cry in my martini.

      I HAVE to have the entire season in my possession before I can start. Otherwise I am in a FOUL mood when the one, tiny hour is over!!!! (addict?)

      But I wasn’t on twitter or fb last year… and now I can see how IMPOSSIBLE it’s going to be to avoid spoilers… ARG.

        You would be a wise woman to stay off of social media tonight. I, on the other hand, will be sending you taunting tweets because that’s what friends do, right?! They dangle temptation in front of you like a hot blonde for Don Draper.

          I’m going to have to unfollow every media outlet… and somehow crawl back under the rock I used to live under before this blog threw me out into the wild world of twitter and facebook…

    What? Boooo! I was planning on tweeting you up during the show to get your take and opinion. Real time is made so much better when Twitter banter and snark.

      I have some issues with moderation… mostly I hate it. One hour of Mad Men MUST be followed by another. Any other scenario gives me hives.

      On the other hand, living under a rock until the season closes is no fun.

    You might have promising new career in photo shop (for hire) application for web or blog sites. I hear it pays well. How long did this take? You really look nice, love the sunglasses!

      Picmonkey.com!!! I’d seen people talk about it… but stuck with my Keynote (mac power point) skills… but now I see why people love it! Totally free and allows you to erase parts of an image you overlay… literally took less than five minutes. Surely the least amount of time I ever spent on a post… I should do more of these!

    I miss Betty too although I must say you two look fabulous together . I also need to eat my Mad Men all at once. I worry that they are now entering 1967, and I hope against hope that Don doesn’t take LSD..I’m sure someone will. I don’t know why they had to progress a year for each year the show has been on. I wanted to stay in the early 60’s with the great clothes and I don’t like the fact that we’re closing in on the 70’s with all those hideous styles and bad music.

      YES!!!!! So, so, so, so, yessssss!!!! I loved the first-season’s era. The cars, the clothing, the hair… all of it. It was a huge part of why I fell in love with the show… and I’m sad to see it go. I don’t even like Megan’s outfits (or her, actually), and the green suit I see Don wearing in the promo photos for this season is just alarming… if they give him giant sideburns at some point, I will cry.

    I am a huge Mad Men addict! My hubby and I discovered it last year and tried not to devour all of the episodes each night, but it was so difficult. A show this great needed to be savored right? Like the fine scotch being drunk continually by everybody on the show except for Sally and her brother. It even made me want to take up smoking. I was born in the early 60’s, so I actually remember when my dad looked like the guys on the show. And I remember the commercials and products. Of course, in my daily life, I lie about my age all the time! Oh, nice pic of you and Don. I thought he would remain faithful to me, but I should have known better. Yes, Roger has the best lines on the show. He cracks me up! But Don………. what can I say? Delicious comes to mind.

      We REALLY are BFF’s… I love, love, love Rodger… and whenever he’s on screen, I thing—gee, maybe I’m making the wrong choice with Don here, Rodger is so funny, and more predictable… But then the moment passes and I remain faithful to Don.

      I don’t even try to regulate the watching… I should, but I can’t. If it weren’t for Paul, I would watch all twelve episodes in one sitting. Not kidding AT ALL… as soon as the season’s available on iTunes, I’m like—clear the calendar!!!

      What do you THINK I’ve been doing?
      Thrilled that Don CLEARLY needs me now, more than ever.
