Tonight is the night that many of us have been waiting for: the season 5 premiere of Mad Men. I am going over to my friend’s house to watch it. We are going to make mai tais and eat junk food.

It’s fun to get excited about watching a TV show again. Besides Downton Abbey, I don’t think I’ve been excited about a TV show since the early 2000s.

In birthday list news, I completed item #21 this morning. I visited the Peabody Museum at Harvard. It was cool. I saw a lot of beautiful textiles and baskets. And I liked the museum’s use of video and audio.

Next up is dinner at Locke-Ober. Boston has a restaurant week in March, so a restaurant I’ve never tried always ends up on the list.
