When my husband and I first subscribed to Netflix, I hated it.

No joke.

They didn’t seem to offer any new movies and I hardly watched. That is, until I discovered cartoons.

Instant cartoons. I shamefully admit there are days I turn on one to three (Ah! I know) episodes of Blue’s Clues when I need. to. get. work. done! This keeps my children entertained for at least 1 half hour.

I constantly have the Blue’s Clues theme song (and the dude in the green shirt) in my head.

“Mail time…mail time….MAIL TIME!!!!!” Here’s the mail it never fails, it makes me want to wag my tail, when it comes I want to wail, MAIL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

I am now passing that jingle on to you. You’re welcome.

There is also another little something on Netflix I am addicted to. Er, I should say someone. His name is Don. Don Draper.

I LOVE Mad Men. I find it fascinating. Not only is it “set” in the 60s (my mom and dad’s era, which I LOVE) but it is also in an advertising agency; in New York City. In my other life, (before I met Kyle) I thought for sure I would live in New York City and work for a magazine/advertising agency.

Um – plans changed. (And I’m thankful for that!)

FYI – this show is naughty. Mr. Don Draper has serious marital issues, all the ad men drink and smoke 24/7, and the women are treated simply awful.

Maybe it is a little like 1965? Why do I watch this again? Regardless, Kyle and I can’t get enough. (Maybe I should say I can’t get enough.)  A few nights a week , once the girls go to bed, I reconnect with Don. And after each episode, Kyle and I are left saying, “What just happened?”

It airs on AMC – and I believe they just finished season 5? (Is this correct fellow Mad Men fans?)  We are in the middle of season 4 on Netflix.

A marketing agency in Kearney had an after hours Mad Men theme party a few weeks ago. It was fantastic. A few of us headed over to the photo booth and grabbed items to complete our look.

WOW! College flash-back!

I took out my co-workers, as I didn’t think they would be thrilled to have their shots on here. FYI – that’s a fake cig. I don’t smoke. Yuck-O. I can’t say the same for the drink. 😉

Tell me you also watch this show?? If not, what is your favorite television series?
