Sorry for all the changes, everyone!

Greetings, Anyone who is actually reading this blog at this point in time!

As the title suggests, I’m sorry for the changes. I’m currently working on blog reconstruction. I’ve moved it from being wordpress-hosted to bluehost-hosted, and it’s definitely an adjustment. Lots of tech to learn. But hopefully it will also help me make this blog have a better theme, which is good.

I’m hoping to be done with all of this soon, and I won’t post another actual, topical post until this is done. It will probably be about Roy Moore. Or Edward Cullen. I’m not sure yet.

So there’s that.…

I found poetry that I actually like. What the hell.

So it’s like, really┬árare that I find poetry (or psalms or written prayers, for that matter) that are compelling and actually make me feel some sort of emotion. For a while, I thought I was some sort of emotional mute, incapable of feeling the emotions that normal people could in response to various art forms. I eventually made my peace with the fact that maybe I’m just a head person. Maybe I just get more out of things that make my head say “shit, really?” I’ve learned to live with it, and even appreciate it.…

I don’t have any more poop in my head.

Sorry to be crude and remind you about human digestive activity.

No, the past couple of weeks I’ve been struggling through my first bout of writer’s block. And I’ve finally worked past it for the most part, and my friend Seth said that it was like I was no longer mentally constipated. There was no more poop in my head. And I thought that would make an excellent title, so I’m writing this post specifically because I had a good idea for a title, and that’s honestly a super encouraging thing to happen to me, and damn it I’m going to celebrate my shitty title. And the shitty pun I just made about it.

But seriously: writer’s block. It’s a bitch.…

I honestly can’t think of a clever way to explain that I’m about to talk about the finale of The Office. (That’s it, that’s the title of this piece.)

The Office is not a difficult show to enjoy. Well, once you get past the first season, anyway.

Actually, even in the first season, Jim’s crush on Pam is captivating enough that it keeps you going, in spite of the fact that First Season Michael Scott was written to be so awful that it is almost impossible to get past it. Thank God the writers didn’t stick with that.

Interestingly, Parks and Rec has a similar situation, with Leslie Knope being almost insufferably pushy. The shows are in similar styles– workplace mockumentary with an ensemble cast– so I’m curious about why both of them had such rough starting character profiles. Maybe the writers were going for a “So cringeworthy you can’t look away” sort of thing? idk. Anyway.

Husband and I just finished watching The Office for the third time. I watch it every fall. And it’s just… the best. I have to limit myself to once per year too, because otherwise I know I’d watch it constantly throughout the year and then get sick of it. I did that to Bob’s Burgers a little bit (though you can never truly get sick of Bob’s Burgers), and now it’s not on Netflix, so I can’t watch it really anymore. And I will never forgive Fox (or Netflix, or whoever is behind that decision) for that.
