First of all, If you want to laugh your ass off, check this website out:
We've been watching Mad Men Season 1 today courtesy of my friend Julie, aka Mrs. Don Draper. I like it. Seeing how I wasn't alive in the 60's its crazy to see the idiosyncrasies of that time period:
* Did anyone ever NOT have a cigarette in their hand? I've heard stories from the older wiser people that I work with that "back in the day" doctors carted their cigarettes around while rounding on patients. And I can't even fathom smoking on an airplane!!
* And you had a full bar at work (sometimes) - score! If it was 1960 I'm pretty sure everyone I work with would be drunk and smoking by 9 am (stressful work environment some days!).
* DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES EVER LEAVE THE HOUSE WITHOUT THE PERFECT MAKE UP, HAIR, HAT, SHOES, DRESS, GLOVES AND HANDBAG. :-) I could deal with this one.
* Pretty sure the term "sexual harassment" was coined in an ad agency in Manhattan in 1960.
Lucas just said "Why am *I* doing the dishes? Isn't that woman's work???" To which I answered "Shut up and get my martini and Lucky Strike."
Just for fun I "Mad Men"'d myself. Mad Men Yourself!!
