I don't watch much TV. Whatever little time I have, I would rather spend sewing or visiting or washing my hair. It stems from years of being a single mom and not being able to afford cable and having a child to put to bed during all the good shows that were airing. I just got tired of watching the last 15 minutes of programs. Or feeling like the tube got the only 'me-time' I was allotted.
However, The Office won my favor two years ago and I have been anxiously awaiting the premiere. Last night did not disappoint. It was like they knew I'd be watching, because now, I want a Rabies Quilt. A la Phyllis' applique project with bats and raccoons and things with that evil crossed out circle on them! HAHAHAHA! I actually spilled my water glass all over me and had to change my clothes after this random turn of events (from TVGuide.com):
Pam answers the phone and she's supposed to say something like "Michael Scott's Rabies awareness Race for the Cure something something something", people hang up on Pam. The whole office is supposed to find sponsors for a Race for the Cure for Rabies. Jan pledged 500 dollars of Michael's money. Phyllis is making a rabies quilt.
It was actually the: Michael Scott's Dunder Mifflin Scranton Meredith Palmer Memorial Celebrity Rabies Awareness Pro-Am Fun Run Race for The Cure
I believe the line that got me was: "Hey Phyllis, how's the Rabies Quilt coming?" And a quick shot of her holding it up. Maybe 2 seconds total, but it was enough to Mr Pink and me over the edge. We had to rewind it just to hear what came next. Thank goodness for DVRs.
And Yay for PB&J (Pam Bealsey and Jim). Love them finally getting together, but I sense that the show is better when you just want them to be...(Kind of like Moonlighting - remember that??) Try and convince me otherwise, NBC. Please.
Edited to add: I also want a "Support the Rabid" bracelet. Wow.
