So finding the first season of "Mad Men" on Blu-ray at 50% off brought the price down to a point I couldn't resist. I've never seen the show and have only been able to watch the first two episodes so far but it's pretty good. (Although I find myself paying more attention to the clothes than the plot.)
One thing that has struck me about the show more than anything is the amount of smoking. Most of you know by now that I used to be a heavy smoker before quitting a couple of years ago. Now seeing this much smoking doesn't make me want to light up again HOWEVER should time travel ever be possible, I'm totally going back to the 50's/early 60's and chain smoke like there's no tomorrow. Ah, the days when they had no idea of the consequences of their actions...Why oh why did I have to be born in a generation built on awareness and responsibility?! BOO! HISS! lol
Where was I? Oh yes! So I've started watching Mad Men and since it's raining here today which dashes all my hopes of taking pictures of my current projects to show you all, I've been "Mad Men"-ing myself.
Allow me to introduce...my Mad Men avatar self! Ta da!
Aren't I fabulous?! If you'd like to Mad Men it up on your fabulous self, just GO HERE. A word to wise: 1. It's addicting so watch out and 2. Turn down your speakers because the "da DA da, dadadadadadaDAda" will get to you after a while...trust me...
P.S.-Have you seen the amount of blogs already signed up for Vanessa's Halloween blog party?! (Check out the list in the left sidebar) Holy smokes! If you haven't already arranged to get the day off or get a babysitter you better start planning now! It's going to take weeks to get through all of these fabulous parties! lol
