I finally had my furnace replaced for a newer, smaller model. It’s also a lot less noisy. The other one sometimes sounded like a WWI bomber about to take off. So I’m ready for winter to start! Unfortunately the plumber accidentally hit my lamp, which then needed to be replaced. I went to IKEA earlier today to do just that. Strange though, how even with a strict mission like the one at hand, you always end up buying more stuff. I do tell myself they’re all things I actually really needed, but still.

Mad Men

I’m currently hooked on the first season of Mad Men. The show takes place in the early 1960s at the fictional Sterling Cooper advertising agency on New York City’s Madison Avenue. After reading a bunch of great reviews for the show I decided to give it a try. I loved it pretty much from the start.

The attention to detail, the great style. Fabulous. Recommended!

Set in 1960s New York, the sexy, stylized and provocative AMC drama Mad Men follows the lives of the ruthlessly competitive men and women of Madison Avenue advertising, an ego-driven world where key players make an art of the sell.

Here’s the New York Times review.
