K, so serious question.

You know there are book clubs? Is there such a thing as ‘tv series’ clubs? Like, ok that would be amazing. You watch a show and meet up bi-weekly or whenever and discuss the show in depth and seriously. And depending on how long the episodes are depends on how many would be watched. I feel the need to discuss a show in depth and feel like a big turd just bringing it up randomly to people.

I finshed watching the U.K. ‘Office’ yesterday.

I LOVED it. I will say the last episode was by far the best one (I teared up). I’m really sad they ended after 14 episodes, I feel like they were really gaining momentum at the end. I LOVED Gareth. OMG. I want more Gareth! I’m really happy to see that the dude who played him gained steam too (I obviously mostly and first realized he was from the ‘Pirates’ movies but he’s been in a TON of other stuff too..) he’s great…now I want to do a reverse filmography and watch everything he’s ever been in.

That being said, I have only ever been so-so about the U.S. ‘Office’. I’ve seen only about 45% of the 100 episodes out there. But after watching the U.K. version, I am really inclined to start the U.S. one again from scratch. Which I did actually start last night. Jim used to annoy the shit out of me, now he seems really endearing and genuine after getting to know Tim in the U.K. version. I kinda wish Dwight was more like Gareth, I mean what can I say, Gareth stole my heart, but Dwight is growing on me. At the moment, I still like David Brent more than Michael Scott, but I’m only 3 or 4 eps into the U.S. one so he has some time to leave an impression.

Overall though, U.K. version > U.S. version

Edit: just also wanted to add that I like the U.K. theme song better than the U.S. one. Like I have been walking around singing it in a throaty voice for days.

On a completely related note to my last post,

has anyone seen ‘The Leftovers’? I can’t stop thinking about that scene where dude jumps into a pool in the middle of the night and screams his fucking brains out under water. Could use that therapy. Don’t have a pool. Don’t know where I could find one. Might be near a lake in a couple weeks. Though this scream needs to come out before then.

I’m having a really hard time lately.

And so I am trying to remember fun times coming up….

like…my helicopter ride over Cincinnati next Saturday

or…going to Niagara Falls in a couple weeks

and even…my quick day trip to NYC in a coupla weeks


Must get through this. Must not crack. Soldiering on.

Spent some of the day going through things and packing. Came across 6 composition notebooks I used as journals from 1998-2003. Read a few entries…comical
