    There is no ending better than Casablanca. It is a classic. Does that cutout live in your bedroom? Has Paul moved out yet? 😉

    OMY, you are hilarious. Your Paul must be a saint to go along with all of this.

    Continuity…you were wearing the skirt throughout the video and pants in the last shot when walking away at the end. Reshoot! This was great!

      No. The pants and ballet flats are exactly right. Part of the point. Part of the wonderful, witty, fabulous, leave-no-detail-unattended, better-than-meds Victoria who keeps us eager for the next post. And we surely know that every decision has been excruciatingly considered and exactingly executed.

      Thank you so much for another wonderful Tuesday!

    Don Draper should be so lucky to get picked up you in a bar … you look fabulous! That dress! Your itty bitty waistline! Officially call me envious.

    I thought I was the only one with a long list of clever ideas daily, none of which ever really come to fruition. Well, some do, eventually become about eighty percent complete. I see this is a totally reasonable use of time.

    What I really want to know, though, is how you and Don had that whole place to yourselves!?

    “If just having ideas counted for anything, I would be the most productive person on the planet.” My lord, I’m going to have to reappropriate this for my personal motto. Brilliant!

    Cute blouse!

    OH – MY – GOD! First the outfit. Puh-lease! It is fabulous! Second, I have been looking for a job where I could just spew out ideas and leave all the actual execution to other people all of my life! I am really good at the idea part. You have just summed it all up. Thank you.

    Encore, encore! Sequel, sequel. And I thought the costume change was brilliant – rather than a problem with continuity.

    Perhaps…..probably…..I repeat, but you have my undying affection for letting me know that I’m not alone in having uesless ideas and other crazy notions, experiences. Those first two sentences of this post made my day. I just don’t have anyone to foist mine upon. I just know that people will say about me, when I’m gone, “she was crazy.” They already do.

    I see the pants as symbolic as she is now wearing the pants in the situation with Don Draper :)

    Lovely production! I’ve been looking for that skirt or some time now…you’ve had it all along! But it definitely looks better on you. And Call Me Irresponsible was an inspired choice.
