A quick word of warning before I begin: this story involves childish giddiness and even partial nudity. That’s right, you heard me. Wild and crazy stuff, I hope you all are ready for it.

First, some background information. Jennie (aka tanster from OfficeTally) managed to score us an interview with our local NBC affiliate, NBC11, back in February. We had just rolled out the Supersized Office campaign, and I guess they deemed it worthy enough to garner a mention on their TechNow segment. At the time, I wasn’t really sure what to expect — I was just happy that they thought enough of our little grassroots campaign to consider speaking to us at all. After a few messages back and forth, we decided to schedule the interview for March 30, 10 AM, at my place.

Something incredible happened today. I’m still waiting to hear back on whether or not I can let you guys in on the details, but I will say this: it’s Office-related, and I would consider it one of the top five experiences of my life (I hope I’m still young enough to get away with saying something like that). Stay tuned for the full story as soon as I get the green light.

Threats of terminal illness and birthday celebrations don’t mix well, a lesson that is made all too apparent during this week’s episode. Michael spends the day recounting sad tales from his childhood and subjecting the office to ill-advised festivities in an attempt to make up for lost time. People are hardly in the mood to celebrate, however, as Kevin anxiously awaits potentially grim test results. Meanwhile, a concerned Jim and Pam head out to pick up some things to lift his spirits and end up repairing a few other things along the way.

The Eagle Has Landed

Kathie from Give Me My Remote sends word that our Supersized Office package was sent off to NBC/Universal during her recent stay in Los Angeles. The delivery itself consisted of a printout of the petition in its entirety (all 400+ pages of it) packaged within an oversized french fry container. And get this: the concierge at the hotel where Kathie was staying asked about the huge french fry container, and when Kathie mentioned the petition, the concierge actually knew about it and had already signed it! If that isn’t ridiculously cool, I don’t know what is. Thanks to everyone for participating and to Kathie for putting everything together. That said, the online petition is still going strong. Stop by and chime in with your thoughts if you haven’t done so already.

Children of all shapes and sizes invade the office during an eventful Take Your Daughter to Work Day. Some view it as an opportunity to exercise their hormones, thereby provoking the ire of their overprotective fathers, while others are content with general mischief and tomfoolery. Still, others manage to make it through the day without uttering a defiant word, and, in the process, reveal a wisdom far beyond their years.

2000 and Counting

I’m proud to announce that we hit 2000 signatures over at Supersize My Office earlier today. Congratulations to Jimmy Blackmon from the fine city of Olympia, WA for reaching the milestone at 3:54 PM PST. Washington is a great state. I knew you guys would come through. That makes two thousand signatures in just under a week and a half — not too shabby at all. You all should be proud of yourselves for mobilizing so quickly.

Regardless of whether or not we’re able to sway the executives at NBC, this petition remains a testament to how much the fans appreciate the tremendous dedication that goes into producing The Office. So, from all of us out here in Internetland, our heartfelt thanks goes out to Steve, Rainn, John, Jenna, B.J., Leslie, Brian, Kate, Angela, Oscar, Phyllis, Paul, Mindy, David (Denman and Koechner), Craig, Melora, Creed and the amazing crew who have perfected their craft and given us a show truly worth fighting for.

The student outshines the teacher when Michael accompanies Dwight to the annual North Eastern Sales Convention, where the immortal words of Benito Mussolini resurface at the most unexpected of times. Back at the office, the accounting staff wrestles for dominance over the thermostat as Jim bites the bullet and makes plans to fly himself across the globe mere days before Pam’s upcoming wedding.
