indoor activity

yesterday the sunshine kept calling my name, but every time I stepped outdoors I wilted from the heat. during a break from working in the yard, I flipped on the telly and discovered mad men. the rest of the day was spent in the time machine that was the season 1 marathon.

the clothes, the cigarettes, the alcohol, the beatniks, the city; I am so in love with this show. it really is a history lesson as well, especially sociological history. child abuse, alcoholism, sexism and racism are a part of everyday life in 1960 america. I have a whole new perspective on the transition my parents had to go through. season two begins next sunday night.
