'Mad Men': Is Miss Farrell crazy?

Is Miss Farrell on Mad Men nuts/about to go nuts? Let’s examine the evidence. (SPOILER ALERT: This post contains stuff from last night’s episode.)

YES, SHE IS CRAZY
She sometimes looks crazy Look how buttoned up and proper everyone else is as this maypole event. And look at the barefoot Miss Farrell:

She jogs – Uuuugh, exercise. Only for the loonybirds. (Kidding! Exercising’s the best! That’s why people who are exercising always look so happy!)
She has the crazy eyes – She really, really does. The way she looks at Don is just one notch below the zombie-sex-mutant eyes on True Blood.
She doesn’t notice when stickers are on her face – I’m not a doctor, but I believe face numbness is a sure sign of the crazies.
That scene on the train – Lady, just ask Betty: Anyone who thinks Don Draper is “with [them]” has another thing comin’. Also, stalkery.

HUSH, SHE’S THE ONLY SANE ONE IN THAT NUTTY WORLD
She has curly hair – Represent!
She thinks people want to eat date bread – Wait, sorry, that goes in the other column….
She seemed so nice in that parent/teacher conference – She’s one of the few characters on this show to display empathy and warmth. I want her to meet Bert Cooper.

Okay, I’m a bit biased, PopWatchers: Miss Farrell and her drunk-dialing have screamed bad idea jeans to me since the get-go. (My kingdom for the return of Rachel Menken!) What do you think? Are you hot for teacher, or is Miss Farrell aboard the crazy train?
