This is about the 10th time I've tried to post today. I wonder if I'm the only person having problems with Blogger.

My aunt and her husband left this morning and I've spent the day trying to catch up with work and then get ahead so I have time to spend with my sister. She arrives Wednesday morning. I've been tired all day. Being a tour guide is exhausting work! I have a hockey game to play this evening, not too late, which is nice. I think I'll spend the rest of the evening catching up on some Tivo. I did get to watch Mad Men last night. I wonder what the hell is going to happen with Don Draper?

Wasn't that an awesome episode of Mad Man? After his "baptism" in the Pacific Ocean, the question is now whether he is Don or Dick (or someone else) moving forward. I loved how open he was with the real Mrs. Draper. If Betty was half the woman Anna is, her marriage would be entirely different.

Speaking of Betty, I didn't miss her at all the week before when she wasn't really on (when Don was in Palm Springs). If they decided to de-emphasize the whole Don-at-home part of the show and get rid of Betty or relegate her to a couple apperances a season, I wouldn't mind, I'd only miss Sally. I actually think the actress who plays her is the weak link of the show, performance wise.

I was also horrified at what happened to Joan. I totally didn't see that coming. She's one of the most intriguing characters. The scene with Peggy and Joan towards the end makes you go think back to the pilot episode. My, how their roles have reversed.

Yeah, that was a great episode. I used to feel sort of bad for Betsy, but they've really made her a bitch this season. Probably because people weren't sympathetic to Don cheating on her. But now you sort of see why he does.

It was interesting to get to see the real Don Draper. He doesn't share that side of himself with anyone. The real Mrs. Draper is the only one who really knows him - even when his brother showed up we never saw him like this.

Clearly, Joan's fiance has a problem with all the blocks Joan has already been around. If any of the men at the office found out, they'd kick that guys ass.

I'm glad to see Betty fade away too. Her behavior to that friend of hers that she threw together with that younger guy was pure bitch.

Will Don/Dick return to the agency? I think he will at some point, and take back creative control from Duck, and that will make Duck jump off a bridge.

I'm less of a Joan fan than la. She's been pretty awful to Peggy and the guy dating the black chick, and having spent her youth sleeping with married men, her options are now limited . . .
