I didn't think I really had anything to say about The Office, but I've been reading other people's reactions and I figured I'd chime in, too.

The Coup )

Other things:
1. I really like Beck's new album, but I think I like the design-your-own-liner-notes-on-Beck's-new-album even better.

2. I've been watching Supernatural again because the Winchester brothers are very pretty when they angst, and because it's fun harassing Ashley about evil clowns.

3. My boss had a nice chat with me today at lunch about how I close myself off in groups of people and I need to stop doing that and get some self-confidence already. Now, if only he'd tell me how to do that, I'd be in business. :p

4. Ashley and I got tickets to see Death Cab in November! We have failed to do this every single time they've ever come around before, so yay for that.

5. I think the weather might be out to ruin my DC plans for tomorrow. I still really want to go, but I'm not sure how interested I am in walking around the mall in the cold wind and rain. Plus, my favorite museum is closed for renovations for the next two years or something. Which is LAME, by the way.

6. I'm so sick of working every single Friday night. I would much rather see The Departed tonight than work.

1. I sliced open my left hand index finger last night. I was trying to cut a bagel and decided I should cut my finger open instead. The gimongous bandaid on my finger is making for some excellent typing skills this morning, too. This is why I shouldn't be allowed out of the house.

2. I wish it would cool off already. I'm so sick of waking up all hot and sweaty with my covers kicked off the bed.

3. I am so beyond excited for The Office S2 DVDs. A 17 minute gag reel plus two and a half hours of deleted scenes? I want this now.

4. Ashley and I are meeting [livejournal.com profile] madmoisellestar and some others for a cheapo baseball game tonight. I got one of my friends from work hooked on Arrested Development, so sometime this week she's going to come over so we can marathon S3, hopefully tomorrow so we can get a little Project Runway action in, too. My boss is going out of town at the end of the week, so I'm hoping the next few days are pretty low-key around here. That's pretty much in for this week in Heatherland.

5. I'm trying to get back into the groove of posting stuff, can you tell? :p

Weekend stuff. Plus a fuzzy picture of a puppy. )


Six Feet Under S3 )


Emmys )


Sooo...no one's going to be in the office with me for a couple of hours, and I'm running out of work to do, so I kinda wanna do the top 5 meme again, and I'm gonna steal Teija's line:

Ask me top fives or I'll silently resent you!

So, the Foo Fighters played an acoustic show at DAR Constitution Hall on Tuesday night, and I just happened to be there.

Setlist )

I say this every time, but those boys put on such a great show. Taylor and Dave have this adorable chemistry on stage. And! Pat Smear was there! I really liked the flow of this type of show, too, Dave got to tell us a lot of little stories about the songs, and made fun of the hometown accent, and how he left us all in the dust as soon as he got famous. I really love seeing him here, because he grew up here and used to record here and knows the area and makes all the right jokes about the place.

My life is one step closer to complete, though, because I have seen February Stars performed live. Hands down, that's my favorite Foo Fighters song, and I never ever thought that some random song from the end of an album they made almost ten years ago would be played on stage for me, but there it was. For the encore, he came out alone and told us a really long story (that we've all basically heard before) about writing Friend of a Friend in Washington when he was living with Kurt and Chris. He wailed out on Best of You, and then told the drummer joke ("what's the last thing the drummer said before getting kicked out of the band?") and dedicated Everlong to all the drummers in the audience. It was so much fun to just sit back and listen to the man's songs, and I'm not lying when I tell you that every time I have the opportunity to go see these guys play, I will gladly fork over my money.


Project Runway )


I keep meaning to write about a million other things -- I went to Bethesda and saw Laura and James last weekend, and we had Indian food and frappachinos and spice cake and it was lots of fun and needs to become more than an annual thing. (Laura, I swear I'm switching my files over! Music soon, I promise!) I want to do that character/'ship/episode meme, I want to post pictures, including one of my new (green!) computer. Also, I'm trying to make plans for my upcoming work-free weekend, which is fast being filled up with things that aren't sitting around in my pajamas doing nothing like I'd originally planned. Which, I guess is actually okay with me. Having plans and seeing people is nice, too.

Anyway, I have a ton of work I'm not doing. So I should do that. And also link to possibly one of the greatest JIMspams I've ever seen. Mostly for my benefit, but also for Ashley, who will hopefully see this before she runs off to Newport again. :)

1. Every morning, as I'm inevitably rushing out the door because I'm at least ten minutes behind, I fill up my McDaniel College Nalgene bottle (which, trust me, has seen better days) with water. A few weeks ago, Ashley made me watch an episode of The Office from the first season, because she said it made her think of me. And now, each morning as I'm filling that Nalgene bottle, the same quote runs through my head:

Dwight: Studies show that more information is passed through water cooler gossip than through official memos, which puts me at a disadvantage because...[picks up water bottle]...I bring my own water to work.

At least it starts my day on a hilarious note. :p I need an icon, methinks.

2. This is why I suggested attack dogs. But no, my mother wanted an alpaca. )

3. So, the snow is starting to piss me off, as it's threatening my livelihood. Not only did I nearly slip and break my neck last night on the sidewalk outside of my apartment complex (because yes, I am that coordinated), but Barnes & Noble has been without power for two days, and of course those two days have to be the days I was supposed to work. This week? I will be getting a lousy eight hours. Which I'd feel better about if I'd already paid more than just half of my bills this month.

4. I was supposed to bring in all my tax information to fax to my mother this morning, since she was awesome enough to find someone who will do my taxes for me, and who am I to pass that up? I know that one day I'll need to be able to easily do it on my own, but I figure now's not that time. However, in my haste to get out the door this morning, I remembered every piece of information except the fax number. Yay Team Heather!

5. Also? I'm having a grammar nazi kind of day. But seriously? It bugs the hell out of me going through all these templates on the computer and finding misplaced or just plain missing commas. I shudder to think of all the documents that went out before I got here that were just plain wrong.

6. I'm in a West Wing groove the past few nights, and currently I'm rewatching the staff-finds-out-about-the-MS arc, and I'm really starting to wish I had S3 on DVD, because I'm not up for watching Two Cathedrals any time soon, but I want to keep going. I think that might have to be next investment. Sometime far away from now, though, 'cause I've spent all I'm allowing myself to spend of my birthday money. Let me just say, though, there will never be a part of me that doesn't wish that I could just be C.J. Cregg. Seriously
