Girls in Their Summer Dresses

It's so very hot. Perhaps I'll find one more summer dress (on sale). One that assures me it's a dress that does things for me. Well, why would I turn that down? Speaking of advertising, Leslie at Work-in-Progress (lower right sidebar under writers & readers) brought The Women Behind 'Mad Men' from WSJ.com to my attention. I couldn't read the whole thing because it was verging on spilling the end of Season 2. No cable, no show. The Netflix Fairy brought end-of-Season 2 today. And yes, I'm still reading & swimming & yoga-ing (om) & will post regularly & with more juice than lately. Soon. It's hot out, what can I say?

I wouldn't turn it down either! Hope it can do more than make me look good.. Maybe it could go to work for me this morning!

Enjoy your swimming and yoga.

lol how about it also makes cleaning house magical while wearing it? Thanks, Julie. Off I go to the pool. It's a good thing I can't see very well w/out contacts. That way I can ignore how I look in the swimsuit. Ugh.

Mad Man season 3 starting this Sunday. I don't think I've been this excited ever. Not sure who I'm looking forward seeing more, the unbelievably handsom Draper or Betty and Joan. I think Betty and Joan. It's the little girl in me, I suppose, they're such dolls.

Hope you're doing well, ear S., I've been meaning to write, but life somehow seems to always get in the way. How's yoga and swimming treating you? I should start doing my pilates at home, but somehow can't seem to motivate myself.

What are you researching? Are you working on some project?

Much love and hugs!
