There has been some serious Mad Men catching up at my place. Since we don't get any sort of television (whatsoever), Netflix has become a dear friend. I have always wanted to be a redhead and hottie Joan Holloway's sexy-cool demeanor is only intensifying the appeal... (I've avoided dying my hair for years now, so, jumping into that kind of maintenance routine makes me cringe a little.)(Seriously, I am in awe of Christina Hendricks as Miss Holloway.)
I suppose I've always had a thing for redheads though. Remember the Lucille Ball phase? I know a slough of girls, from much younger days, that were obsessed with all things dolphins, moon and stars, pink (you get where this is going) -- For me, it was all things "I Love Lucy." I received alarm clocks, t-shirts, board games, lunch boxes, videos, wallets...any and all things "Lucy" at all celebratory events where gifts are generally given. Anytime anyone saw something "I Love Lucy" they, "just had to get it for me." Just 2 years ago, for Christmas, my mom gave me a Lucille Ball Barbie, jus' cause.
Gorgeous, powerful, minxy, larger-than-life redhead. That's what I still want to be when I grow up.
