The Office Update / Writer's Strike Sadness / What to do on Thursday nights now?

Our love for The Office only grows week by week. Steve Carell lives out his most natural acting role ever; we're convinced he doesn't even have to try to "act" to be Michael Scott. We enjoy seeing the Pam-Jim relationship blossom, and after this week, some conflict is arising between the ditsy/annoying Kelly and Pam over their respective boyfriends' ping pong abilities. (Speaking of ping pong, I'm going to put in a request to get a ping pong table in the lunch room at my workplace. That would sure be nice!)

NOW, however, there will be no new episodes until the show's writers end their strike. There's debate over how much revenue the writer's should receive from online content, like ads on for streaming online shows, webisodes and deleted scenes. And I don't blame them! They should be paid for their work, but I'm sure there are two sides to the story, only one of which the public has heard.

SO, we may not have plans on Thursday nights at 9:00, the one day a week that we actually watch tv. So maybe we'll find something else to do in the meantime.
