"You're turning violet, Violet!" I am in all blue today, so I feel a bit like a blueberry. Blue nails, blue shoes, blue dress. I'm blue... Da Ba Dee.

This weekend should be a good one. We will be attending my husband's 20th high school reunion, and watching the Mad Men series finale on Sunday night. I am a big fan of this show, mainly because it's a world I understand now (advertising/marketing), and it's fascinating to see how business was conducted in this industry during the late 1950s to early 1970s. The characters on the show also started their own firm, something I have experienced first hand.

And then there's Peggy Olsen.

Seeing how Peggy has changed and what she has endured as a working woman during this time in U.S. history has probably been the best thing about Mad Men. Sure, watching Don sabotage his life is intriguing, but it's Peggy who keeps me tuning in. Her relationship with Don is also one I love to watch.

I also think Roger is hysterical, and I will miss his one-liners. Who can forget this quotation from the show's fourth season, something any person in marketing or advertising will understand:

"My father used to say [advertising] is the greatest job in the world, except for one thing: the clients."
