Good grief

Yes, yes, the I realize that the renewed dedication I referenced has started off rather shaky. My bad and deal with it. Tomorrow you can expect my full thoughts on such Oscar-nominated movie which I find to be simply OK..not WOW, not Hooray, but just Ehh. Stay tuned for that. (I also have my best movies of 2008 post typed and ready to go, but I'm leading you to wait until Friday!)

Some long overdue Office love:

January 13 - "Ryan took some of the branch managers and Toby into the woods, for a kind of 'get-to-know-you' weekend. Michael wasn't invited. Apparently, they already knew everything they needed to know about him." (Pam)

January 16 - "As a farmer, I know that when an animal is sick, sometimes the right thing to do is put it out of its misery. With the electricity we're using to keep Meredith alive, we could power a small fan for two days. You tell me what's unethical." (Dwight)

January 19 - "I've always wanted to be in the witness protection program. Fresh start--no debts, no baggage. I've already got my name picked out. Lord Rupert Everton. I'm a shipping merchant who raises fancy dogs. That's the life." (Michael)

January 20 - "I love my employees even though I hit one of you with my car. For which I take full responsibility. Look, I'm just trying to take everybody's mind off this unavoidable tragedy and on to more positive things. So, I thought we should plant a tree." (Michael)

January 21 - "This is Sprinkles. She was my best friend. I kept her going through countless ailments. I asked Dwight Schrute to feed her once and she is now deceased." (Angela)

January 22 - "One day Michael came in complaining of a speed bump on the highway...I wonder who he ran over then?" (Jim)

January 24/25 - "Check to see if she's faking. If a car hit me, it wouldn't crack my pelvis. You know what? I bet she cracked it at home and jumped in front of the car to get some workers comp." (Dwight)

January 26 - "The bar uses an applause meter. That's why it's so important that you all come and applaud only for my band--Scrantonicity Two, not Scrantonicity, which I am no longer a part of." (Kevin)

January 27 - "I just love sales. I love it to death, it's as simple as that. And I don't get to do enough of it as a manager, so I took this second job, kind of as a hobby. Some people have golf, or relaxing." (Michael)

Can I tell you how badly I want a "Michael Scott's Dunder Mifflin Scranton Meredith Palmer Memorial Celebrity Rabies Awareness Pro-Am Fun Run For The Cure" t-shirt? I think I am about to go onto the NBC store and look for my t-shirt.
