Another early to bed, late to rise day

Does anyone watch The Office? Not only a hilarious show, but there's this romance. I didn't realize till last night that the receptionist is engaged, but she has this thing for the office prankster (I've only seen it 3 times, so I don't know their names) and he has a thing for her. The longing when they look at each other....oh. This could rival Ross and Rachel. I even dreamed about it last night, with of course myself as the receptionist, shocking my friends when I leaned into him. This could supplant Earl as my favorite comedy.

Sterf Feagan sent this to me yesterday.

Mary, if you like the American version of The Office, you will adore the BBC version. The American one is stiffer and not as well done as the BBC version... I guarantee, you will see the difference and pee your pants laughing! You can rent or buy it... I have all the episodes! The boss on the BBC version is cringingly hilarious....

I picked this one because of my affinity for Java. :-)
