So we attempted to have a shin-dig of sorts last night to honor the return of our favorite television show – The Office. I made a themed snack menu (for all you Dunderheads, see below), we cleaned the house, and sent out e-vites.
It was sort of comical that the only guests able to come had never watched the Office. So, they were a little unsure of our apparent enthusiasm. Then we had forgotten how late The Office comes on now, so we watched American Idol first. Now if any of you caught AI last night, you are aware of what a travesty it was – I mean, Michael Johns, really?! You have so many other perfectly appropriate choices for a ticket home, and you choose the hot Australian? I just don’t get it. So that put a damper on the evening and led to a heated AI conversation between our two friends, us, and Jason’s mom – turns out we all faithfully watch AI.
Between the screaming (and laughing – they were having a good time) kids upstairs and the sadness of losing Michael Johns, I must admit that The Office was a little overshadowed. Sigh. Jason and I have plans to watch it online this weekend while Jonah is napping. What I did see of it was hilarious and pathetic – which is what makes it so completely awesome.
Poor Jason was obviously bummed that our party had a low turnout. He had that “Am I the nerdy kid in class?” look while I reassured him that not everyone loves the office like we do, and next time – it’s paper invites all the way.
