I am obsessed with the fantastically feminist phenom show Mad Men. Don Draper is cool as can be and Joan is a sort of anti-hero (I love her to death but I am so glad I don’t have to be like her to be strong in the workplace). I love this periodic table (found at flavorwire – link below).
Spolier alert for Mad Men and Sopranos! Revealing details to come….

(based X-Rite’s official FM100 Hue Test).
Brag: I got a perfect score (a zero), which pretty much made my week. Guess the Color Theory class I took in the UC Extension design certificate program a few years ago paid off…. or maybe it was my compulsive color-arranging of clothing, books, and iPhone app icons (practice makes perfect).
Friends who are designers and visual artists seemed to score between 0 and 10. Aesthetically sensitive non-artist friends reported scores between 10 and 25. Share your reactions to the test – and your score if you like – below.
