Busy, busy, busy, busy, busy!!!!!

Between the normal teaching routine, the marathon training, going back to graduate school, and a suddenly-better social life (♥) I have literally watched no television lately. I've caught bits and pieces of Glee, but haven't been as impressed as I thought (hoped) I would be.

But Thursday nights, I'll make time! Yay for the return of The Office and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia!!!

Had a very fun evening last night hanging out at a Scranton bar with "David Wallace." (Andy Buckley is in town to participate in the first of the Office Tours they're holding here this summer.)

What a down to earth guy!

I finally managed to watch this week's episode of The Office.

Oh. My. God.

I know those on my flist who are fans of the show are sometimes a little disappointed with it. And while I agree that there are indeed episodes that are funnier than others, and seasons that are generally of better quality overall than others, as someone who lives near and works in the occasionally-beleaguered city of Scranton (Yes, Saturday Night Live, I'm looking at you!), I will never not love this series!

So while this week's work ethics storyline was very funny (and, at times, touching), it's the little details that the production team is so careful to include that make the show for me. Kudos! Take this Thursday, for example:

Cooper's Seafood House! (Slightly image-heavy) )

Of all the weekends for The Office Convention to be held. Naturally, I will be out of town.

Alackaday.

I kinda wanted to go too. It's been looking like loads of fun.

Oh well. This weekend I am off to bigger and better things. :)

I know a lot of members of my flist love The Office, so I wanted to share some really great stuff that ran in our paper today. A staff writer and a photographer from the Times-Tribune spent a few days on the show's set and the results were rather awesome! (Cast interviews, photos, and loads of other stuff.)

It was especially fun to watch the video footage. The cast's theories as to what city of Scranton is actually like were very amusing (especially from the standpoint of a local gal). I'd have to say that Rainn's guesses were excellent ones and probably the most accurate (but then he's already visited here, so he would know *G*), while Angela's were perhaps furthest from the mark. (Quaint - yes, in places, but not exactly New England-y.)

It was also funny to hear that many of them are speaking like "true" Lackawanna locals! (For instance, here in the Scranton area, people generally have something against the letter "T" . . . as in, they just don't use it. Therefore, when spoken aloud, it is not ScranTon, as the spelling would suggest, but rather "Scra'on." It's a tough habit to break, but I do try. *G*)

Anyway, lots of good stuff here! They're even planning a convention for some point in the near future. Hee!

I don't write about The Office nearly enough -- especially considering how much I've come to like it. Although sometimes, some episodes, I feel a little overwhelmed over where to start. As a Scranton native, there's just *so* much I can say -- most notably about the local references, some of which have become inside jokes around here. (i.e. We have no Hooters! *G*)

I just thought one of the cleverest parts of tonight's episode was when... )

It's probably about time I went out and found myself a fun Office icon. :)

I must now return to my bed . . . and the completely UGH! sinus congestion that has been plaguing me for the last several days.

*passes out*
