J'adore Don Draper

What is not to love from Don Draper? His dark and cool exterior, persuasive and insightful performance in board meetings, not to mention his boudoir actions with various different women. Even his excessive chain smoking looks hot. Oh Don, you can harass me anytime!

I first learned about this show from my cousin who told me excitedly: "You're going to love the dresses!". She knows about my peculiar obsession with vintage clothing. I spent an entire week drawn to that American era when smoking was still considered healthy in addition to the men being proud sexist pigs and had not a clue about the words "sexual harassment". I enjoyed every second of the meeting and brain storming scenes where you can see all types of advertising individuals in action. The supporting characters are richly pictured in their own trouble and glory. The office affair, intrigue, competition...some things are always stay the same. Have I mentioned the setting? Oh my. It will need a blog of its own to describe the meticulous details it has, from the set design to the vintage clothing.

My favorite Don Draper's quote:
What you call love is was invented by guys like me, to sell nylons. You're born alone and you die alone and this world just drops a bunch of rules on top of you to make you forget those facts. But I never forget. I'm living like there's no tomorrow, because there isn't one
So in this joyous momentum to celebrate Mad Men's third season, AMC made this fun game of turning yourself into one of the Mad Men's character: Mad Men Yourself. You can use the character in your facebook, twitter or even your desktop. This is me visiting Sterling Cooper's office :-)
