Last week I decided that I wouldn't watch Mad Men anymore until the end of the season. Then I'd watch those skipped episodes back to back so that hopefully the lackluster episodes wouldn't linger on my mind as much. Of course, I didn't follow through on my plan and watched this week's episode tonight. There was so much more punch in the direction tonight. Snippets of scenes to come enticed perfectly. Their payoffs at the end rose to the level of their intrigue. I'm back to loving the show.

That close call, following the previous night's tough walk home, led me to a feeling of utter exhaustion all day long. Yesterday my wife drove me to work since she got home from lunch too late for me to walk and get to work in time. Thinking ahead, I put my borrowed bicycle into the van with the intention of riding it home that night. It doesn't have lights and so I found myself at the end of my shift walking my bicycle home. Two police officers pulled over to talk to me and to remind me that I'm not allowed to ride it without a light. It was so ridiculous that I was actually in a good mood about it all. I'd like to thank those cops for reminding me to keep not breaking the law.
