Office Fodder

The Office: Dunder-Mifflin Infinity

infinity.jpgWe have all been waiting for Jim and Pam's big reveal, the reunion of Ryan and Kelly... but every "Office" moment may pale in comparison to tonight's unveiling of the new, more youthful and very black-haired Creed.

Wow. I actually thought I may have had a few too many Red Bulls after this one. The whole thing was weird, frightening and beautiful all at once. And is more Creed going to be a regular thing? For those complaining about these hour-long episodes, his expanded role might be worth the time alone.

Ryan also came back, and apparently so did "Miami-Vice"-era facial hair. What was more annoying: His texting abilities or the fact that his promotion has completely gone to his head? I think the word "douche" comes to mind. While he wasn't totally insane for asking that Dunder-Mifflin enter into the Internet era when it comes to conducting business, the fact that he picked on our favorite co-workers just made me want to hurl a gift basket at his head.

Only two things seemed to knock Ryan down a peg. First came Kelly and her fake pregnancy. The second was Pam -- and her lack of availability.

What was that about? Was Pam, with her new down-do just irresistible? It's hard to believe that after spending so much time in the Scranton branch that Ryan would just ask Pam out on a whim. Also, that's got to be against company policy in some respect.

Speaking of which: Toby spilled the beans about Jim and Pam. In fact, he issued a memo about it. That was his own PDA: public display of announcement. Kind of uncool, if you ask me. First of all, even though he's all about HR business, was this really his business to make public? Also, I think they should have dragged out the secrecy for a few more episodes.

Moving on, it's hard to believe that Michael can remember every teeny detail about a client's daughter's allergies, but he doesn't know to steer a car away from a lake. This is beyond his average boobery. It was also sort of a disappointing turn of events. The hissy fit over chocolate-covered turtles, as delicious as they are, was unnecessary. Instead, I wanted to see him score some business and deliver a gift basket of sour grapes to Ryan.

Also, are Dwight and Angela really through or will she hang onto him like Sprinkles' aging carcass? I hope Dwight keeps trying. She may have turned down Garbage, but nothing says "love" (he said it!) like a good old cash basket.

And finally, if anyone knows what Pierce Brosnan smells like, leave a comment. I'm curious! -- Rachel Cericola

By the way, congrats to Rob and Wendi, who both won "Office" swag. It's on the way!

Pierce Brosnan smells divine.

Or more technically often of Green Irish Tweed, from the House of Creed.

Some Google results:


Green Irish Tweed by Creed: The scent of Pierce Brosnan, it's woody, floral and elegant


Green Irish Tweed: A catch-all classic which numbers George Clooney, Pierce Brosnan and Clint Eastwood among its followers. Sandalwood and ambergris, staple foundations of many fine fragrances, are topped up with mint, violet and iris to create a floral and woody mix that's subtle and masculine.


The House of Creed is a good starting point for sophisticated, memorable scents. Its Green Irish Tweed (£55; 020 7394 7717) is a personal favourite. It's how men ought to smell when they are scrubbed up for a big event: sweet yet manly. Pierce Brosnan and George Clooney are fans.

yes the cologne is very nice on him, the other I mentioned before, is the divine way he smells without cologne.

Is Michael Scott the single most depressing, dysfunctional character on TV? Oh, yes.
