midnight ode to my jim

I just got through watching last night's episode of "The Office" and I am in full-fledged swooning mode wanting a Jim Halpert of my very own. Seriously. Is it weird to be completely in love with a fictional character? I know I'm not the only one though. Thousands of girls must have tuned in, eyes green with jealousy and Cinderella complexes heightened, as Thursday night's favorite sit-com couple tied the knot with a parody of Chris Brown's Forever and the YouTube wedding dance in the background - as only the office staff could do it.

I'm kind of the Pam Beesly of my department. I have curly hair about the same color, dress pretty moderately, and though I don't answer my phone saying "Dunder Mifflin, this is Pam." I often feel like my department's version of a secretary - that is, I am the most junior member. So where is my Jim I ask you? I want someone who will cut his tie with a pair of scissors because I'm knocked up, hormonal and crying over a torn veil (ok, maybe not the first part but as Michael Scott says, it isn't the 1890's people!) Add to that having to babysit a co-worker with an injured scrotum. I would cry too, Pam. I would cry too.

Loved it all. And even though I know he's not real, I go to bed hoping that like Santa Claus, winning lotto tickets, and calorie-free burritos, Jim Halperts really do exist.

Oh my, I love Jim. I have a gigantic crush on him. You'll find your Jim soon enough, I promise.

And I still haven't scene the episode. It's on my dvr mocking me!

I love finding other blogs about NY and really love yours!

I also love Jim Halpert. Wasn't the wedding episode so cute AND hilarious?!

Oh my goodness, Jim Halpert and Pam Beesley's love story really is amazing! I almost cried at the trailers for the episode ("Just five years ago, I was a guy who had little moments with girl who had a boyfriend. People said I was crazy, but all along I knew, I was waiting for my wife." )

Thanks for stopping by my blog :) Always nice to find other transplants.
