It's like eating a hot circle of garbage.

Ok. Here's where it gets nasty. I did not like tonight's Office...and I watched it twice. To punish myself? To make sure? I have no idea. I was in a drunken stupor from packaging up holiday tags, and that I felt I needed to watch it twice to make sure that I didn't miss all the...non-funny...parts. *sigh*

Yes, PB&J on the roof was cute. But not cute enough, dammit! Ok. Angela's pelvic cast had me ROLLING. As did Ed Helms dance with the horn. But everything else? EH.

There was a time when that show was way more relatable to me. I worked in a big company, with a bunch of 'characters' (i.e. crazy asses) and it was awful and entertaining. Also, that old company really appreciated my baking. I could experiment and make 4 dozen cookies, dump them in the kitchen and they'd be gone in an hour.

Nowadays I work with all women, all in their early twenties, all size 2. They have yet to really experience life and would like to do so without carbs. So I have no one to appreciate my cooking. There should be some sort of 'safe drop off' for unwanted baked goods. Like the 'safe baby drop off'* at hospitals and police stations. There should be a place where I can surrender my cupcakes and pies, and know that they will be in good hands and loved by whoever received them. *sniff* Doesn't anyone want my cookies??


*is this just in California? Huh.

Oh that stinks. I work in Construction, so I'm one of about 10 women in a 90+ person office. Anything I drop in the kitchen is gone in about 2 seconds. Yesterday I ordered 6 pizzas for 12 guys and IT WASN'T ENOUGH.

They have safe baby drops here in MN. No worries though - I've kept mine but will reconsider if she does not start sleeping longer than 2 hour blocks.
If you want an upper midwest opinion of your baked goods, send a care package. The 14 girls in the sales office will inhale it. They even eat the stuff I make that comes from a BOX...

In NC we have a 'baby surrender window' of one week from birth where you can surrender your newborn to any responsible adult - police, firestation, hospital, etc. - no questions asked.

But I think you have a good idea. Maybe you should make friends with your local fire station or police precinct. I'm sure they'd welcome deliveries of free goodies. Take your boys along and they'd probably get a free tour of the pumper truck....

Man, I was thinking "baby surrender window" was something you got to push them out of. Although it's probably good that there's a window, I think m mom wanted to surrender me once I hit 12.

I would offer Will and I up as the baked goods drop-off but I put a "1" in from of that size "2" and while it's not insane, I would like to keep it from becoming a "2."

You need a baked goods roach coach. But it should look like the weinermobile - well, a JustJENN weinermobile.

I like Robin's idea, I know my boy would go nuts to see a real fire truck.

And if not, I live in Massachusetts, so box 'em up and send them out...I work in a office of 1, but that won't stop me from eatin' the whole damn thing...mmmm yummy!

Yikes. Those women in your office are missing a good thing. Life is too short not to have any cookies/pies/cupcakes.

You need to get a job in a library. Food never lasts in the two where I work, cakes and muffins are inhaled. Biscuits are our favourite food group. I'm leaving my Saturday job tomorrow and I can guarantee that the muffins I put on the special table (yes, we have a special table) will last no longer than 5 minutes. Scary.

Hey same brain, I was JUST thinking the same thing about my office. I don't think they appreciate my baked goods as much as they should, so I may stop baking for them...

I watched both last week's and this week's episodes in a row so I may be confused but was this the lake one? Cuz that was funny. I also enjoy Andy so the horn thing was good, especially when it incorporated the running man. Was this all last week's? I'm confused.

and I will be your baked goods depository :)

I work in a huge office filled with mostly men, all nerdy (yay for video game companies!). I'd be willing to take some baked goods off your hands. ^_^

I'm still laughing at Kenneth on 30 Rock. "I like your top. I'm a real good sex person."

But the Office - no. Ok, laughed at Andy's take a chance on me and when Phyllis threw the paperwad. but no.

I realized I don't bake for work anymore. I don't really cook anymore. That can't be good.

I'm so with you on this week's episode - the only rolling with laughter moment was when Jim signed Meredith's cast...LOL!

PB&J are very cute, but where do they go from here? Please not some horrible Ross and Rachel plot thing...

And why is Ryan such a douche now? I'm predicting a fall from grace.

I actually thought it was hilarious. Ryan talking that corporate speak was laugh out loud for me.

I like the episode. Better than the second one actually. But then, I've never been known for my taste.
