My stylish friend Pam created a "Mad Men" avatar for me weeks ago and I've been so swamped I haven't had time to share it. She chose my outfit (on the money!) and captioned it with "This is you pitching an idea to the web team." Oh, how I wish our offices looked like Sterling Cooper! And I can almost always be found with a cup of coffee in hand, so that part was correct. If you want to "Mad Men" yourself, you can do it here. And tune in on Sunday for the third episode of the season. I'm waiting for it to really take off. Right now, I'm annoyed with Betty (who, by the way, has the best clothes), wholly irritated by Pete, rooting for Peggy, worried for Joan, and continuing my love/hate relationship with Don. It's an emotional roller coaster. AMC has lots of fun games and trivia items on their site - you can even find out which "Mad Men" character you're most like! I came out as Salvatore Romano! I'm hoping it's because the first line of the description reads "You're stylish and artistically gifted, and the quality of your work is beyond question" and NOT the "You're also racked with inner conflict" part.
