I love The Office (how awesome was the season premier?!) and tonight I remembered that I haven’t read Creed’s blog for a while.

This is my new favorite thing:

Creed Thoughts

 

I’ve been trying something new lately and it’s really put a new spin on how I go through my days. Instead of waking up ten minutes before work and wiping myself down with a damp paper towel, I’ve been waking up really early and going for walks all over town. You’d be amazed at how quiet this place is without people in it. I haven’t felt this peaceful in years.

I went over to Nay Aug Park the other day at around 4am and even the geese were still asleep when I got there. I couldn’t believe my luck. It’s been a dream of mine for years to see how far I could throw a goose and this was the perfect opportunity. I’ve definitely learned that you’ve got to strike fast when dealing with sleeping animals because the element of surprise is your biggest weapon. That old wives’ tale about letting sleeping dogs lie only applies if you don’t have a plan for after you wake up the dog. With geese, it’s the same story. You wake up a goose just for the fun of it, you’ll get pecked like no tomorrow. Their beaks are painful, man. You don’t want to find out first hand.

 

 

When I saw those geese getting some shuteye, I knew exactly what to do. I picked out one that looked like it might be lighter than some of the other ones. [Side note: Can we stop feeding the geese so many damn breadcrumbs? They’re plenty fat as it is.] I decided to name it “Tosserton,” because it seemed appropriate at the time and I find that I can throw things farther if they have a name. When I was sure that Tosserton was definitely asleep and not faking it, I picked out my landing zone and went in for the throw.

Goose tossing is a hard art to master and with no means to practice, I had to rely on what it looked like in my dreams. So I got a running start, went full steam ahead, picked up Tosserton and threw him (her?) hammer-toss style as far as I could, spinning my body to get maximum torque. I was pretty freaked out about how flexible her (his?) neck was, but it ended up helping me get more distance than I would have otherwise. I’d say I got a good forty feet, which is shorter than I predicted, but still a pretty admirable toss in my opinion.

You should have heard Tosserton honking in the air. He (she?) righted herself (himself?) right before hitting the ground and ended up just gliding to safety, so I didn’t have to feel bad about hurting Tosserton. After the goose landing, I was overcome with an enormous sense of completion. It was one of the greatest experiences of my life.

I will say this: I don’t recommend goose-tossing to anyone unless you’ve had a steady series of dreams over the last twenty years about it. If you don’t have the instincts bred into you subconsciously, then you won’t be ready to do it. Leave the goose-tossing to the professionals, people. Don’t try it at home.

I can’t wait for The Office to return! (Thurs, Sept 25)

This funny commerical was on during the Olympics.

Jim tells Dwight and Andy about a new Olympic sport he invented called Slap Face.

Geoff is my favorite part of the show. Aparently he isn’t only talented at making cakes, but he can play the guitar and sing too!

Thanks to all of my friends who wished me a happy birthday :)

I feel like my brain is kind of broken… I was just watching The Hills and my favorite band Alkaline Trio was on it. It was so weird, and surprising. I don’t know what to think. At least Audrina has the good sense to know they are good.

My mom got me tickets to see Alkaline Trio at Croc Rock June 20th. Yay!

And speaking of Alkaline Trio, Matt Skiba has cute/funny pictures of himself from when he was younger on his MySpace page. Here are a few:

And here he is with his parents. Aw.

Back to my birthday. My sister got me this awesome Marc by Marc Jacobs coin purse and a silver “W” key chain. (Also Marc Jacobs)

I also got the Cloverfield and Clue DVDs. :)

My mom, grandmother, sister and I went to the Brandywine River Museum on Saturday where I once again wished I had $5000 to spend on this print. (Snow Hill by Andrew Wyeth) It’s big (26 1/2 by 40), beautiful and would look great in my new living room ;)

Jeff took me out to dinner to Carrabbas. I had Mezza Luna (as always) yum. The host looked like Ryan Atwood. Weird.

Ryan Atwood

That’s pretty much it. Not sure if I’m a fan of being 28, but I guess I don’t have a choice!

 

Update: Here is the video of Alkaline Trio “recording” their new song, “In Vein” on the Hills. It pretty much just focuses on Dan singing and Lo being a ho-bag.

I’m still obsessed with The Office.

I found this video on OfficeTally.com. Jenna and Angela crack me up. Here they are talking about Angela’s baby shower and bears dressed as bunnies. Enjoy. 

There is a NEW EPISODE of The Office tonight!!! I hope Toby doesn’t really move to Costa Rica… he’s a good character! Also, Kelly needs to be on more often! (ok, I’m done with the exclamation points… for now)

On MySpace I’m friends with Pam/Jenna and Angela from The Office. It’s funny how Jenna blogs from the Office set: “I’m on set in the deep background of a scene. Dwight, Andy and Angela are in the kitchen and I’m at my desk pretending to work. I was sitting here, answering emails and reading gossip sites and I thought, “Hey, why not blog a bit!” So, here I am. Not too different from when I was a real receptionist. Funny how life works sometimes huh?”

She mentioned that since Angela is pregnant in real life and not on the show they “have been hiding her belly with files, purses, copy machines and even people. Yesterday we did a scene and it was my job to block her belly. So cute!” It’s fun to notice how they are hiding her belly while watching the show.

Angela posted this cute picture on her MySpace page of her and Rainn Wilson (Dwight).

It’s cool how Jenna and Angela are close friends. They’re so cute.

Update: Yay! Toby was on tonight’s episode :)

I’m totally in love with this tree. I want a dogwood (or two, or three) at our new house because they are pretty and the first place Jeff and I lived together was Dogwood Circle.

    season three the office dvd

    I just got Season Three of The Office on DVD! I can’t wait to watch it. Season Four starts next week too. I love this show.

    Almost every day someone comes to my blog after searching for “Jeremy Roloff + shirtless” (because of this story) so I thought I’d give the people what they want.

    jeremy roloff and zach

    ta-da. Just kidding.

    jeremy roloff and friends shirtless

    These pics and more are on his myspace page.

    This is really funny. A clip from The Hills aftershow on mtv.com

    I heard this song on The Hills, thought it was awesome, and used the wonderful internet to find it. It is Rihanna’s Umbrella but sung by Marié Digby so it’s not annoying. Enjoy!

    WTF.

    Man builds shark cage for his kids

    WTF

    Sharks a family affair

    You have got to be kidding me.
