I am having a hard time staying awake at work today. I usually get bored at work and start to get a little tired after lunch, but today I can hardly hold my head up.
Because Leland and I have been staying up late watching episodes of The Office.
A few weeks ago a friend lent us the first season. After watching all six episodes in the first season in one sitting, we decided to watch the remaining 4 ½ seasons as quickly as possible.
Well, it wasn’t actually a conscious decision. We just thought it was funny and quite possibly the best show on television and just couldn’t stop watching.
We literally couldn’t stop watching. When our friend lent us seasons 2 & 3, we thought it would be enough to get us through a weekend.
We finished both seasons in the matter of a couple of days and couldn’t wait till our friend got back from his vacation a few days later to get season 4. I made Leland get season 4 for us immediately so we could keep watching. We finished seasons 4 & 5 in just a couple days.
Now we are trying to catch up with the 6th season. Since it’s not on DVD and NBC only has a few of the more recent episodes on their website, Leland and I had to do a little searching to find the first several episodes of the current season. We were able to find them all at Amazon.com, but Leland was not interested in paying $1.99 for each episode.
You know what happened next?
We had a fight about whether or not we should spend the money to watch the episodes. I realize that saving money is always better than spending, but I wanted to watch The Office.
So I did what I had to do to get Leland to agree to spend the money.
And pouted enough for him to realize that if he didn’t acquiesce he would have to deal with me pouting for the rest of the night.
A half hour later we were back at the computer, downloading episodes of The Office from season 6.
Can you blame me for acting like a baby? I mean, come on, who wouldn’t want a little dose of Dwight K. Schrute?
And as much as Michael Scott annoys the hell out of me, I can’t help but keep watching. Watching Michael Scott try to run a business is like not being able to turn away from a car wreck. It’s scary and disturbing but turning away is just not an option.
I love me some Jim and Pam, but I am secretly in love with Dwight and Andy and hope one day I can have them both for a threesome.
It would most likely be weird and awkward, but I am fairly certain they could give me some good lovin.
And then I could tell Angela that I had sex with both of them as well!
If you don't watch this show, give it some serious thought. Just make sure you have a big chunk of time available because once you get started, I promise you will not be able to stop.
