Manager and Salesman

Ok so I attempted this real-time Live Blogging thing. It was cool, but I don't enjoy the show as much so I may have to re-watch the episode. So here's the entry:

Hey guys! I am attempting to blog in real-time the new Office episode entitled "Manager and Salesman". Comcast's description is the following: In the wake of Sabre's buyout of Dunder Mifflin, new CEO Jo Bennett (Kathy Bates) arrives in Scranton, awing the staffers with her charismatic southern style. But Bennett is against having two branch managers, a policy shift that impacts Michael and Jim. (Mindy Kaling wrote this episode, she's awesome!!!)

9:00-Parks and Rec is still on... um NBC, its office time.

9:00-Michael is calling a hotel in Canada and the Olympics... he had a room for the Olympics! But he cancelled.

9:02- Andy is in the opening credits!!!

9:02- Wow, dalmatians. Kathy Bates! Love her.

9:02- Dwight will only stand up for the President or Judge Judy.

9:03-Someone is going get fired from Regional Manager...Jim or Michael

9:04- Someone is going to be back in Sales.

9:05- LOVE KATHY BATES!! Her character is a breast cancer survivor.

9:05- ummm how cute are Andy and Erin!!!!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

9:06- Roger Federer has cologne?

9:06- chop chop little onion

9:07- Michael thinks Tallahasse is in Texas

9:08- I love her southern accent (Jo Bennett)

9:08- Kelly thinks Andy likes her!!!!!!! OMGGGGG, this is a disaster.

9:08- Looks like Jim wants to be a salesperson... more $$$

9:09- "The Alantic is my favorite ocean"-Michael

9:10- Jim is going to be the manager!?!?!?!! Dags, I know he's upset.

9:10- commercial break, this is a little difficult. Typing on my laptop has a challenge. My finger keeps going over the mousepad area... what is that called? Can't remember. My sis switching channels to Grey's Anatomy (this show stopped being good after season 2)

9:12- Rashida Jones is in Cop Out?!?! Aww man!

9:13- Wow, Pam is really pregnant.

9:13- Ryan and a blue scarf. So Ryan and Dwight are in cahoots against Jim.

9:14- Michael as a sales manager, this is going to be hilarious. Jim to Michael: you gotta do something now, you can't just sit there.

9:15- Erin is an awesome secretary.

9:16- OMG, Kelly is telling Erin about Andy's card. And Erin loves Kelly! "She can sing, dance..." Yes, Kelly's awesome.

9:17- Does Ryan still work at Dunder-Mifflin? Ryan crushed a can after 3 tries and Dwight crushes an apple.

9:19-Phyllis stinks. LOL. It is due to her allergy medicine. Really? Hmm, that may explain some things about certain people.

9:19- back to Greys... McSteamy has a daughter?!?!?! and she's preggers? What is going on?

9:21- the hot guy from The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2 is on Greys now!!! wow, he's pretty.

9:23- Kelly's skirt is cute. and she kissed Andy. wow!

9:24- "I wished we had one of the amnesia guns from Men in Black"

9:25- Andy never liked Kelly. (well duh)

9:27- Dwight was all cocky about Jim not being Regional Manager anymore. Jim put Dwight's tie in his coffee cup. Everything is back to normal!

9:30- Ryan and Dwight... LOL. "Martini bars are pretentious."

I would have like to have added a little more of my commentary but I was focusing on the episode. I'll try to do it again. For now, NBC will be airing the Olympics for like a month! So the Office won't be back till March. When Pam and Jim's baby will be born! WOO!

Been awhile!!!

So these are the 4 episodes I'm going to recap: Scott's Tots, Secret Santa, The Banker, and Sabre..if I can remember!!

Scott's Tots: 10 years ago Michael Scott made a promise to a classroom full of kids that he would pay their college tuition if they succeeded in school and reached graduation.

That blew up in his face!!! How he got out of it..I don't But Stanley laughed at a picture of Michael in the newspaper. I do remember that much lol.

Secret Santa: Jim let's Phyllis dress as Santa. Unorthodox to Michael's standards, since he was dressed up as Santa too. So they compete for the staff' affection. THEN michael goes into his office, turns his suit inside out and becomes Jesus. Why, Michael, why?!?

Well Michael finds out that the company will be bought, so everyone thinks they are folding. They call David Wallace and find out that the branches will remain open, just higher-level people like himself are out. Nooooo we can't lose David Wallace?!? (Seen him in person...nice. Lol.) so all is well in Scranton.

So then we get winter break and in January we got 2 new episodes (one if which I was out of country....I don't like missing the office!!!) watching online isn't the same!!!

Well it was called The Banker. Basically someone was coming in to scope it out, that way new company can figure out budget and all this financial mumbo-jumbo. The banker says he has to check warehouse and speak to HR rep. Michael feels they have to impress in a big he makes some changes. Much like Lady Gaga does lol.

It's a clip show, which was good because it focused on Toby's memories.

Michael hides Ryan in a closet lol. He makes sure Toby is in the bathroom long enough so Dwight can impersonate him and talk to banker. But Toby does come out and Dwight leaves. Ohhh..and fake Stanley. Funny, but didn't like him lol.

So the banker asks Toby if there are any safety hazards...Toby says none that can come to mind..enter clips of Michael on lift, throwing watermelons off roof, hardcore parkour! The fire! The bat! And many more..then he asks if everyone is generally happy..toby says yes..meanwhile clips of Kelly slapping michael, Pam slapping michael, Jim slapping Dwight, and other

Then the banker asks if there are any sexual harrassment liabilities...that's what she Michael goes to sit in on rest of mtg: where the topic of wasted time and resources. Michael denies it: but come olympics, Michael klump, and the countless pranks Jim has played on Dwight!!! Then the banker asks if anyone is near retirement age..enter clips of Creed!!! And then, the office hookups. Dwight and Angela, Angela and Andy, Michael and Jan, Pam and Roy, and PB&J---pam and Jim!!!!

And they play Darryl' Dunder Mifflin Song...annnnddd Lazy Scranton..the inspiration for this blog...

Yeah great epi!!!

All new epi- Sabre:

A rep from sabre comes to give an orientation. Michael makes Andy and Erin sing a welcome song (to the tune of Miley Cyrus- Party in the USA---gag). They are shown an intro video featuring Christian Slater as himself and Kathy Bates as the CEO of sabre. The rep goes to talk about changes, how the IT guy is blocking YouTube and Twitter. (michael is upset) and how aluminum water bottles eliminate need for plastic and various trips to water cooler. Michael voices his concern to Gabe and the CEO but feels his opinion doesn't count. He runs to David Wallace, who looks a hot mess, and is a bit crazy now. Looovveeee his son who is an awesome drummer!!!!

Side story: Jim and Pam looking to score their kid a spot in a daycare center. Interview is a bit awkward.

Ok my summary skills are lacking toward end. I've been working on this entry for like an hour and a half. That included me watching the latest two episodes, receiving a phone call, and looking up summaries on wikipedia. Lol.

Latest two episodes are online! So def check them out. We get a new one tonight, then a break until march due to the winter olympics..
