That would be Joan, Roger (John Slattery), Don, Peggy coming to us again this weekend on Sunday on AMC's Mad Men premiere....google photo of Newsweek cover....
I'll be hitting the big 5 0 in October and this is part 2 in my gentling in to that new age. I don't feel 50. Heck, sometimes, in just one day, I may feel( and act ) 5, 16, 22, 31, 49 and 74. All in 1 day. Living life to the fullest, sometimes. Enjoy segment 2 of many to come.
Reflect and project and try to live in today .
--I can actually remember when Neil Armstrong walked on the moon in 1969 and I ran outside and stared up at the moon in wonder. I'm one of those 'take a picture of the moment' kinda girls.
--My husband and I just channel surfed past the original Alien movie.. He actually likes Aliens -the sequel-better. I remember being in high school and going to see Alien at the theater. For that matter, I remember our church bus taking a group of kids to the next biggest town that had a mall to stand in line to see the movie Jaws in the summer of 1975. I had nightmares of armies of apes after I saw the original Planet of the Apes movie at theater in the 60's. Is 12 too young to see The Exorcist at a drive in?
The point is that I have many years of movie going experience. That's not the point. Well, I feel old when I think of all the movies I've seen. hmmm, Alien still looks good 20 + years later. I still love movies, and I'll be seeing the Hunger Games this weekend-can't wait.
--I refuse to use twitter and text. just cuz. Of course, to reflect back a bit--the internet , twitter , texting, and facebook didn't even exist when I was in my 20's.
--Celebs turning 50 this year--Tom Cruise, Sheryl Crowe, Matthew Broderick, Jodi Foster, Rosie O'donnell, The Breakfast club--Emilio Estevez, Ally Sheedy, Mc Hammer and many more.....
--And finally, another celeb turning 50. John Slattery -embracing the grey (or the white) hair here in the Mad Men photo. This guy actually looks a little older than 50 or maybe it makes 50 feel older to me. Well, he is kind of hot in those Lincoln car commercials.
I'll be watching him and the rest of the MAD MEN gang on Sunday night. 1960's ad agency hi jinks and drama( representing the ad agency lifestyle in the swinging 60's when I was a wee babe in Small town Alabama)
