Oh my Gods, can you believe I forgot to post Basket of News? Professor Spouse and I drove from New Jersey to Kentucky for the holiday weekend. Connectivity has been sketchy, as we mostly got the best family tent and were camping. Right now we’re at a hotel in West Virginia, about a third of the way home. Posting won’t resume a normal schedule until Tuesday.

So, what did you do over the holiday weekend?

  1. Glad you girls hit the road! Hope you had fun.
    For weekend relaxation I enjoyed season one of Mad Men, and was startled by Betty saying to the shrink,
    “My mother wanted me to be beautiful to find a man.
    There’s nothing wrong with that.
    But then what?
    Just sit and…smoke and…and let it go until you’re in a box?”

    Is the box a coffin or her home in Ossining? I found this to be a little scary. Do you think there are bread crumbs all through the episodes? When are we going to re-watch as a group? This is going to be so cool 🙂

    • “Let it go until you’re in a box” only makes sense if it’s a coffin.

    • I have to schedule the rewatch but it is actively being planned. Probably fall, since in the summer I’m writing two shows: Hell on Wheels and Masters of Sex.

  2. This is an interesting clip where Jon Hamm is shown in a Mad Men pre-finale interview keeping a poker face when he is asked if Mad Men ends with the coke commercial.

  3. I don’t know if it’s been mentioned but I just saw Jon Hamm on three episodes of the Netflix Series “The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”. Really funny. He’s in episodes 11, 12, and 13 I believe. So good to see him in something I haven’t reached ten times! He’s so funny and still gorgeous!! So excited for the re watch!
