Damn you, Hamm!

For years, I have prided myself on the fact that my household is cable-free. It was an expense I could never justify, and I didn't want my kids to turn into TV junkies (right now they're just PBS junkies, which doesn't seem as bad since it's educational). And you may remember the less-than-stellar customer service experience I had with those fuckin fuckwits at Charter. My blood boils every time I think about that bullshit.

I've endured countless Sunday afternoons in which two network channels were showing Golf at the same time. I never even minded having to wait for entire seasons of a cable show to be released on DVD. So what if I'm a year behind? Just don't tell me what's going to happen.

Anyway, as I've mentioned, for the last several days R and I have been watching Season One of Mad Men on DVD. Yesterday we finished the last disc.

Today we're having cable installed so we can watch the Season Two Premiere tonight. And it's all because of Jonathan Hamm, The Beautiful Man.

CURSE YOU AND YOUR DASHING GOOD LOOKS AND GOD-LIKE PHYSIQUE!!! YOUR SLAMMIN' BOD, YOUR IMPOSSIBLE BEAUTY!!! YOUR PAINFULLY SEXY VOICE!!! THE WAY YOU LOOK IN THOSE DAPPER SUITS!!! GAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHH!!!!
I WISH I COULD QUIT YOU!

I figure I'll pay for it out of my yarn budget. I can't remember the last time I bought yarn. Seriously. I haven't knit once since I made that corsage for Maeby months ago. Wait, I knit a little bit at the Steve Miller concert, maybe three or four rows, but that's it. I just haven't felt like it recently.

In other news, today is Beebie's birthday party. The Odyssexy is transformed, check it!



The party will be a treasure hunt that takes Beeb and her friends to various local landmarks to find clues. R will be the navigator, I'm staying home with the boys. I hope R's patience holds up.

Dude, remember in the Mystery Machine it was the folks wearing neck scarves that got the most attention.

Just a word of warning.

I swore I wasn't going to get hooked on Mad Men. Oh well, at least it's a more intelligent show to be hooked on and not all embarrassing to cop to like, well, I'm not saying because it's too embarrassing. For me it's that girl who used to play Saffron on Firefly, she's amazing. Also, I really like the Jewish department store lady, Rachel.

I think I could go on all day but I'll stop now. I hope Beebie's party was fun!
