The Office life

So it’s been a while…my bad. I don’t know why, it’s not like I don’t have time to drop a post in now and again; I just didn’t have anything really burning me up, or anything that was that humorous I felt a need to share. I guess it’s sort of one of those lull’s in life, where things are just rolling along nicely.
Last night had a little Office party. The capitalized ‘O’ isn’t a typo; the party was to celebrate the new season of The Office on NBC. Big fan of the show. For those of you who’ve lived in isolation over the past year, The Office is a comedy about a midsized paper company in Scranton, PA. One of the funniest things is it is filmed as a documentary, so there are these hilarious one-on-one interviews with the very eclectic employees. It won an Emmy for Best Comedy; I do a lot of laughing at that show. It is one of the few shows that is like Seinfeld inasmuch as I can watch it over and over and over and still get a good laugh.
Anyway, the first episode of the new season arrived; I thought it was really good. My wife was depressed because two of the main characters don’t hook up like you thought they would. But it is a necessary evil so the show can go on for many, many seasons. Everyone’s favorite character is Dwight K. Shrute, a power hungry, untactful awkward man played by Rainn Wilson. The picture posted is of Dwight. Anyway, I’m gonna leave you with some of his wisdom.
“Security in this office park is a joke. Last year, I came to work with my spud gun in a duffel bag. I sat at my desk all day, with a rifle that shoots potatoes at 60 pounds per square inch. Can you imagine if I was deranged?”
