Attention party attendees -- BE BRAVE (aka, the Office premieres TONIGHT)

At this very moment, the amp in my brain is blaring a recreation of the classic (read: old) Monday Night Football anthem (which is refreshing since lately it's been an endless wave of songs from this swirling around my brain). A few notes and I'm fired up for some hard-hitting, sweaty, high-octane, yell-at-the-TV football. Especially if it involves this guy. In case you weren't already convinced of my insanity, here's a factoid: Age five Becky had a massive crush on number 7, which included nightly kisses to a life-size poster and diary entries filled with loving prose.

Since it's possible you've forgotten the fire-me-up-for-football song, I got your back. Check out the music video:


Anyway, Hank -- with his scruffy beard, flannel shirts and belt buckles -- wrote great lyrics and all, but my brain is blaring "Are you ready for the OFFICE?!" Cheesy, but catchy, no? No? Yah, you're right. Consider the source.

What I'm getting at, in a long-winded, roundabout, reminiscent way, is that TONIGHT (!!) is the one-hour season premiere of The Office. And in case you forgot, I'm planning a little soirée at my casa.

The catch: my party is TOMORROW night. Therefore, I would like to send a clear message to my guests:

DO NOT WATCH THE SHOW TONIGHT. WE ARE WATCHING IT TOMORROW NIGHT. IT'S THE MAIN EVENT AT THE PARTY. LET'S LAUGH TOGETHER, NOT APART. BE A SPORT.

And now, to my throngs of faithful blog stalkers (he he), a message to you:

DON'T YOU DARE TELL ME WHAT HAPPENS ON THE SHOW. DON'T SEND ME LINKS. DON'T TELL ME WHICH PARTS CRACKED YOU UP. KEEP YOUR LIPS ZIPPED.

Ahem.

And now, for today's installment of Name that Quote:

Co-worker A: That is the bravest thing I have ever heard.
Co-worker B: I can't imagine what I would have done.
Co-worker A: I can. You would have left me to fend for myself. Like that time we were on the Ferris Wheel, and that kid dropped a milkshake on me, and you just laughed.
Co-worker B: Well that was funny, that's why.
Co-worker A: Oh it was? Okay, well the next time that you get scared, that you think a murderer is in your apartment in the middle of the night, and you call me to calm you down--
Co-worker B: Okay. You know what I didn't ca--
Co-worker A: You can just call somebody else because I'm not going to do it anymore. I'm not.
Co-worker B: Well don't talk to me about calling people in the middle of the night.
Innocent bystander: Can you stop-- Alright-- There's a bunch of people back here, maybe-- Guys--
Name all three parties. And if you're watching tonight, ENJOY!

Tricky Becky, very tricky. Although, that one is Ryan, Kelly and Toby :)

I am SO JEALOUS! I am arrogantly assuming that if I lived within a two hour commute I would have been invited to your Office Party, and I am sad I am sooo far away!
Have fun!!!

Becky! I'm glad I moved to the other side of the building so I didn't hear you and all your friends laughing your heads off all night across the parking lot! (like the last party that I missed because Vanessa was sleeping and Dan was studying) I bet it was hilarious and you guys will be quoting stuff from it all weekend!

P.S. I'm totally in for the broadcast tomorrow if you guys are carpooling!
