Yesterday I happened to enjoy two things I NEVER EVER miss. So I thought I would share.
(NOTE I WILL NOT BE SPOILING ANYTHING>>>READ ON)
Absolutely never miss it. And by that I mean if I do miss an episode on Sunday night (rare) I watch it as quickly as possible on OnDemand before the next airs. I never let myself fall away from Mad Men. Even when some of the storylines frustrate me. I hang in there.
I am thrilled that a long forgotten storyline was touched on in last night’s episode. I was hoping it would be resurrected before the series end. I would like closure.
I am not one for seeing a movie twice let alone a TV episode. I drives me crazy to “rewatch anything”. But Mad Men will someday be an entire snowy weekend event where I plan to watch all episodes back to back to back.
The love of Mad Men is also shared by Emily. In fact she is the reason I initially got hooked. That first summer home from college she quickly caught me up on the series. And then last summer she hooked me into Downton Abbey but that is another story.
Thru the eyes of my daughter I see that this series opens up the discussion that many things in the world today are the same as it was 20 years ago when I was her age and even 40 years ago in the world of Man Men.
Every generation likes to think the “times” are unique unto them. But if we are honest. It’s much the same just the wardrobe and music are different.
Now onto my second never miss.
A new release book by Mary Kay Andrews.
The latest was released a mere 6 days ago and downloaded by 8am on release day to my Nook. I held out for three days hoping to keep the book on my “to be read” shelf by June 18th when I hit the road again. I failed.
496 pages later.
I finished it last night.
A fun little chick read.
Revolutionary Summer by Joseph J. Ellis.
I like to mix it up like that.
What are some things you never miss?
Now two other things I am missing….Paul Jr. & Emily.
this may take awhile to get thru.
