Creed Thoughts - December 20th

Mister Internet, Creed Bratton, has blessed us with another blog this week on

"This is going to come as a shock to all of you, so find yourself a recliner and park your caboose in it because here we go: I love Christmas decorations. I do. Lights, mangers, inflatable Santas – you name it, I love it. They remind me of some really great trips I took back in the day."

Schute Space - "Spelling is a Cornerstone of Communication"

"Dwight" has posted a new Schrute Space blog post on

"I was at a gas station this weekend and heard a little girl ask her mother a question. This question might as well have been “Why am I so dumb?” but in actuality, it was “Do reindeer fly better when it’s raining?” Obviously, the girl thought that reindeer was spelled “rain deer.” Children are stupid. What sense is there in naming an animal after a weather condition? There is no such thing as a hail bear. Nor is there a sleet squirrel. The only exception to this rule is the snow leopard, which is named more for its coloring than its preference for cold weather. I’m also aware of ThunderCats, but they don’t count because they’re alien creatures."

Jenna Fischer dropped some "Walk Hard" love on all of us with all about the movie and the premiere, including photos.

She did include a little "Office" for us too, although it's not too promising.

"In Office news, the strike is getting really scary. Talks have broken down and they aren't planning to resume until after the New Year. It looks like this is going to last longer than we thought. There is a chance we will be shut down for the entire rest of our season. Jim and Pam finally get together and I don't get to find out what happens! ARGH!"

OLD Office Interviews

I just found this video, and even if you've seen it on 100 other sites, I HAD to have it on here.

Jenna Fischer, Rainn Wilson, John Krasinski and B.J. Novak are on a blog called ClipsQuips and wow - so funny.

I'm guessing this is John's haircut from Jarhead?

Jenna Fischer on Today Show

This morning Jenna Fischer was up bright and early to appear on NBC's "Today Show" out in the NYC cold.

"We're in kind of a holding pattern. We don't have any scripts. We've filmed everything we had. Everything we had aired. It's unfortunate because Jim and Pam finally got together and now I don't know what's going to happen."

Ed Helms is in "Walk Hard" Too!

Here's a capture of Ed Helms from the trailer even though you don't find his name on the cast list on IMDb. Go figure.

Craig Robinson in "Backlash" Video

Judd Apatow got some of his friends together to do a very funny little video promoting "Walk Hard".

The video opens with Apatow regulars Paul Rudd, Justin Long, Jonah Hill and our friend Craig Robinson playing a little Guitar Hero: Rock Band. As if that's not cool enough, the skit then explodes into Craig losing his mind and chasing after Apatow.

Be warned that the video contains a LOT of uncomfortable and adult language. So, keep your speakers low at work or around the kids. But it's hilarious!

""There is the card," she says, "which I bought at Target, and a special insert-card, which has a little personal message to everybody. It has a special ribbon that I have to tie on. Then, there's the return address label that's Christmas-y and the Christmas stamp."

Fischer adds, "I have to write in green and red ink. It's crazy town – crazy town. Martha Stewart would be proud.""
