Multi-tasking

Last night, there was another new episode of The Office on television at 8pm.

Leah was in bed at exactly 7:58pm.

As the opening scene starts, my laptop dings with an incoming instant message (IM). Yay! It's SIL EJ!

As the theme music plays, she says (types?): "Insert my dance, HERE!"

Obviously, we are both big fans of this show. Aaron was gone to worship practice at church, so I had no one to laugh with...which severly limits your enjoyment, as far as I'm concerned. So it really was wonderful that EJ kept up a steady stream of IM comments on the episode...one of my favs being:

"Every time I see (Pam) in those glasses, I laugh!"

Then every time she was on screen, EJ'd send a little, "he he!"

Truly, it is the little things in life that make it so darn entertaining.

I am a super huge fan of The Office! I also loved Angela's and Andy's really lame game of Mad Libs :) Pam's glasses were so bad though...poor girl! And what was up with Ryan?

It might be my severe middle age showing, but I don't see the entertainment value in "The Office". I can do without watching disfunctional people when I'm home, especially when the disfunction is in an environment I've just left. On the other hand, I do like "Dilbert".

Any thoughts? As I cruise Facebook, it seems like post-boomers love the show.

Just pinging the blog from the Detroit Metro Airport so Lyz can pick up another state from her Google Analytics...

Parking spot selection at the Fargo airport is much better at 6:00 AM Monday morning than at any other time I've checked.

Sorry Liz, I haven't got into The Office, but I have watched it a few times. I'm more of a medical drama kind of person... Thursdays rock!
