Post-Office Thoughts

I think The Office is setting us up for a Dwight/Angela pairing. There was a veiled mention of a significant other on "Dwight's" blog, Shrute Space, on NBC.com, and Angela made a comment about office romances last night. I was a little disappointed at the lack of continuity with Dwight saying he came to work even when he had pneumonia when before he informed Jim and Pam that he never got sick and could raise and lower his cholesterol at will. I loved this exchange though (paraphrasing):

Stanley: You have no analyze not only the words, but also the pauses
Michael: Did you learn that on the streets?
Stanley: Yes. In the ghetto, in fact.

This morning some jackass in a truck from
this company almost ran me off of the road. I was getting on the highway, and he pulled into the right lane exactly where I was trying to get on without signaling. I had to pull into the shoulder to avoid an accident. I finally caught up to him and left myself a voicemail with his license plate number. I drove slowly to try to get to his truck number, even going so far as to pull over to the side of the road so that he could catch up to me. I was going to contact the company about him, but when I got off the highway we made eye contact, so now I'm paranoid because he will know that it was me; not that he knows who I am, but he was behind me for many miles and he would know where I got on the highway. I guess I should just let bygones be bygones. I'm so tired of the way trucks drive around here though.

Jackpot! I just opened my desk drawer to get some Advil for a headache and realized I still have half a box of peanut butter meltaways in there.

I played the lottery again last night with my November coupon, but I didn't win.

Only 5 1/2 more days of work till Thanksgiving vacation!

It must be nice to see Thanksgiving as a "vacation" and not the eve of unspeakable horror!

Am I the only one completely horrified that the company whose truck almost flattened Jenny G is actually located on Naturally Fresh Blvd.?! That's just not right. Unless ALL companies are required to be located on a street named after it. "OK, go straight on Viagra Road. You're gonna be on this road for awhile. At the end, you'll reach two cul-de-sacs..."

omess: It is!

feather: I just take the regular tablets.

march: Oh my god! I would totally bid on that if it weren't up to $600! I spent so much time clicking on those sound clips.

dim: LOL! I hadn't noticed that!
