Sounds like an episode of Mad Men which I highly recommend. I agree that I couldn’t work like that but it might be fun to try it for a while.


Most true. While I haven’t bonded to entire series, I’ve seen a good deal of the episodes. Mad Men really did kinda capture that early to middle part of the sixties, that, IMHO, would now be mistaken for the fifties.

Some of the stuff they get wrong, but I like how they even mail down the fact that everyone has an ashtray and some form of elaborate / decorative lighters in their houses. Ashtrays, back Tim, resembled works of sculpture, or some other expression of artistic design. (The only way to tell the difference between an ashtray and a candy dish back then was the indentations to hold cigarettes in the ashtrays. 😎 It really was an odd time for a while.

I’d rather have a beer bottle in front of me than a pre-frontal lobotomy.
