I watched The Office last night. First season. And I didn't die. Most people know about my inability to watch things where I am embarrassed or feel sorry for any of the characters. I can't watch Mr. Bean - he makes my stomach hurt. I can't watch George Castanza on Seinfeld - he's just too horrible. I can't do it. I could hardly watch Happy Days as a kid b/c I was too embarrassed for Richie.
This was a big step for me. But, I did it. Just the American version, I don't think I'm up for the British one yet. I love Pam and Jim. I hate Dwight. And I feel so sorry for Michael I could cry, but I held it together. And I even laughed out loud a few times. So... I may watch more of it.
