It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad (Men) World

A little more than a week ago, I shared my amusement with AMC’s promo for season three of Mad Men madmenyourself.com — and asked for submissions of Mad Men alter-egos. Six of you took me up on making your own 60s-era representative, and now everyone gets to play who’s-who. Here are your clues:

  • I am related to three of these people.
  • I went to college with two others.
  • At some point, I’ve lived with three of them.
  • Three live in the greater DC area, the other three don’t.
  • Five are at least semi-regular commenters on this blog. One is strictly a lurker.

OK… leave your guesses the comments!

(To keep us all on the same page: the top row, left to right, is 1-2-3 and the bottom row, left to right, is 4-5-6.)

Answer time!

First, the clues:

  • I am related to three of these people. Jen, Eileen, Common Loon
  • I went to college with two others. Joanne, Sionna
  • At some point, I’ve lived with three of them. Sionna, Joanne, Eileen
  • Three live in the greater DC area, the other three don’t. DC: Jen, Joanne, sprite; non-DC: Eileen, Sionna, Common Loon
  • Five are at least semi-regular commenters on this blog. One is strictly a lurker. The lurker is Jen; everyone else is accounted for, I think.

And the players thusly accounted for, here’s the rundown:

1. Jen
2. Joanne
3. Eileen
4. sprite
5. Sionna
6. Common Loon

Please do note that Eileen is so comptetive that she incorrectly guessed her own picture in order to throw everyone else off!

    I’m going to guess that #2 is Joanne only because of the glasses.

    I’m still working on the rest.

    • Joanne August 5, 2009 / 7:03 pm

      Well, I specifically did not pick the riding outfit for precisely this reason: too easy!

    3 green dresses, 3 coffees, 3 kitchens…your freinds / relatives all have some tastes in common.

    I’m guessing Mom as #3 (or maybe #5?), Eileen as #4, and the rest…? Would I even stand a shot at guessing the others?

    So first I went for the riddle
    – related to three: Common Loon, Jen, Mom (Susan and me, Eileen were also contenders)
    – college with two: Sionna and Joanne (Wendilicious also a contender)
    – lived with three: Mom, Sionna, Joanne (Wendilicious and me also fit here)
    – non DC: CL, Sionna, Mom
    – lurker: Jen (Julia is the only other person that I can think of here)

    So here is what I have narrowed to, and is my official guess:

    1. Sionna
    2. Joanne (which I knew before I read comments above)
    3. Mom
    4. Sprite
    5. Jen
    6. Common Loon

    and if there are two that flip-flop I’d swap #1 & #5

  4. Eileen August 5, 2009 / 3:30 pm

    PS
    – Wendilicious would also be a lurker 🙂

  5. Common Loon August 5, 2009 / 3:43 pm

    Jen – of course! She would be a lurker. She would be the only one I might know well enough to guess. I can’t imagine Jen wearing any sort of a scarf-type-thing on her neck, so I’m guessing that she glammed-up and did #1.

  6. Joanne August 5, 2009 / 7:06 pm

    For some reason, #4 makes me think of Deb.

    • sionna August 5, 2009 / 7:43 pm

      Holy crap!! Her sentence expired??! She was one scary little b***h….but I guess she probably isn’t so scary at the age of 60.

      Who knows.

      I can’t believe she’s free.

  7. Mom August 5, 2009 / 8:52 pm

    I have NO idea how to weigh in on this, but I am enjoying it !!! The 60s outfits & hairdos — ohhhhh. Go Girls!

  8. Eileen August 5, 2009 / 9:46 pm

    Updating my guesses:

    1. Jen
    2. Joanne (which I knew before I read comments above)
    3. Mom*
    4. Sprite
    5. Sionna (thanks for using your mi on Facebook)
    6. Common Loon

    I can’t believe that you used “embiggen” and that it is a cromulent word!!!

  10. Eileen August 5, 2009 / 10:15 pm

    what does cromulent mean?

  11. Sarah August 5, 2009 / 10:21 pm

    Eileen, ask your hubby about cromulent. He’ll know.

  12. sionna August 5, 2009 / 10:25 pm

    I put a slightly different Mi on Facebook…different hair! I guess it wasn’t different enough. 😉

  13. Sarah August 5, 2009 / 10:46 pm

    Ok, kids… I’ve posted the answers at the bottom of the main post. Go look.

  14. Susan August 6, 2009 / 7:52 am

    Hey…define cromulent. Some of us aren’t married to Chris 🙂

  15. Susan August 6, 2009 / 8:31 am

    Knew I could count on you to give me a link 🙂
    As per the 3rd def…does that mean CL wanted to punch you in the stomach…or that you would want to punch her? Just curious…

  16. Common Loon August 6, 2009 / 8:33 am

    Thanks for the fun, Sarah!

    Eileen…competetive? Really??? Must be a recent, Texas thing. 🙂 Aw, who am I kidding? There are no mushrooms readin’ this blog!
