What it does mean, is that I get rather into DVD box sets. Usually a long while after everyone else has finished them.
One of my most recent watches is Mad Men. I bought my Dad the s1-4 set of them for his Father's Day present earlier in the year, before borrowing them back from him to watch first. I managed to finish all four seasons in just a few weeks and am now thoroughly in love with Don Draper.
I'd love to live in the 50s. Imagine being expected to wear huge-petticoated 'Betty'-dresses for day to day life.
My main quandary though? Would I prefer to be Peggy, Betty or Joan? OK, Betty or Joan really. I am not a big fan of Peggy. I guess her work ethic is to be admired, but really? Pete Cooper? Ick.
Betty has the best wardrobe by a mile. But is maybe a bit of a brat. I'd like to think my mothering skills wouldn't end at "Go watch TV." anytime my kids were getting in the way of what I wanted to do.
So that leaves Joan? I sort of love her. She comes across as a bit of a bitch. I like that. She knows how to dress for her figure, and get what she wants. I love how she takes control when they set up base in the hotel room.
Which would you be? And isn't that the best picture ever?
