This (mostly) Just In...

Three things:

First, the Mad Men finale airs Sunday. This season has been pretty fantastic, focusing as much on the women as the agency. Will Peggy's haircut land her a man? Will Betty let Don come home? And will Joan leave her a-hole fiance? My bet is no to all three, but they'll all look fantastic, whatever they do. Speaking of things that look fantastic, check out these Mad Men illustrations. I'm totally obsessed with them. Which leads me to...

My new avatar. No, I did not cave to Mathdude's constant harassment. I just felt like a change, okay? I am almost 30, you know, and 30 is a time for big changes, or something. In fact, my birthday is at the end of next month. More on what you can do to celebrate in the weeks to come.

Finally, check this out because it is truly hilarious:



Thanks, as always, to Garney for the clip. Enjoy a lovely weekend (which I'm sure will not be as lovely as my weekend in sunny San Diego, but bless you for trying).

He looks like that dude in the video that hops over the bar and does back flips.

I like your new avatar!

I liked your old avatar too, I don't see what the problem was...but change is always good (haha, get the Obama reference?)

Ha ha! You're almost 30! You're almost 30!

Garney said...

My favorite Mad Men illustration is probably Chip-N-Dip.

Have I already mentioned how attracted I have become to Equestrian-gear Betty this season? Holy Moley, January Jones can wear a pair of jodhpurs and riding boots.

Here's an interview with Mad Men creator Matt Weiner to get you ready for Sunday's finale.

I like the new avatar, too. I first notice it at SYG. I used to get joy from correcting people, but it tended to make them not like me much, so I tried to stop. Sometimes it just slips out.

Red said...

McGone: January Jones is one of the most beautiful women on TV, but I secretly love that Christina Hendricks gets all the attention for that show.

Red - love the new avatar. Nothing make a woman feel sexier than scanning her ass on a color copier. Seriosly. Is that a color copier in the back of the photo?

Red said...

Dr. Z: It is a color copier, but I don't plan on xeroxing my ass...if that's what you are suggesting.

Winter said...

Ha, love it.

Mathdude said...

Gosh, who would have thought changing your avatar would have generated such positive feedback...hmmm...it sounds familiar, I think it was...who was it again? Ah! IT WAS ME! SEE? I TOLD YOU it needed changing! Until I find something else to pick on you for, I guess all I have now is where you live. Speaking of which, you must be excited about the Padres next season, right? If the Rays can go from the worst team in the major league to the World Series, I guess this means your Padres are a lock for next year, right?

Your new avatar is nice, but the old one was perfectly fine. Mathdude probably takes credit for the sun rising every morning.

words words words said...

January Jones is criminally underrated. It's probably because her real name sounds like a porn name.

Also, Mathdude does not cause the sun to rise every day, I do.

Love,
Ra

I still see this as a victory for Mathdude.
