The Best of Betty: What You Might Have Missed This Week
Reasons to watch Mad Men, the best chick flicks of all time, beauty products that really work and where to meet a smart man. Sounds like a recipe for a perfect weekend!

Greetings fellow Bettys. I don’t know what the weather is like where you are, but here in NYC there’s only one word for it: brutal. This week I truly understood what people meant when they said they could cut through the air with a knife. And I’m not just talking about the cloying stench on the subway. It’s been so hot and sticky that this weekend, I have decided to do the only sensible thing a girl can do when faced with hair-frizzing humidity like this. I am going to barricade myself into my apartment, turn the air conditioning to High and only open the door for emergency junk food deliveries.
The first thing I plan to do is put my blender to work and mix up a batch of Betty cocktails.They’re pink, and contain ice cream and alcohol – what more could a girl ask for?
Then I am going to retire to my sofa, push aside the cat and huge pile of laundry that I haven’t found time to fold and catch up on a lot of TV viewing. I just read our story on the 10 reasons why you must watch Mad Men and I now feel compelled to sit through both seasons back-to-back!
Then, if drinking a jug of the Betty cocktail hasn’t knocked me out, I am going to watch one or two of the movies on Betty’s list of the top 10 chick flicks of all time. Yep, the closest I am going to get to a beach this weekend is watching Bette Midler sitting on the boardwalk singing “Wind Beneath My Wings” (which reminds me, I must pick up a box of tissues and family block of chocolate).
