Moo.

HELLO FROM REHAB!!!!   Not sure if anything's been shared but Sunday dinner at my parents' a couple weeks ago was in fact an elaborate ruse to stage an intervention.  Actually it wasn't very

Everybody take a minute tonight (or today) to raise a glass to HeckDad.  My sister just called to tell me that he passed away at home.  Don't have details other than he fell, but he was 94 with a bad

Synopsis Edit

Oscar (Oscar Nunez) informs Michael (Steve Carell) that the office must spend a $4300 surplus or lose it in next year's budget. When Michael opens up the floor for suggestions, factions break out and officemates square off against one another in order to get what they want. Oscar suggests that they replace the copier while Pam (Jenna Fischer) suggests they buy new chairs and Toby (Paul Lieberstein) suggests that they get the air quality in the office tested saying that there is radon coming from downstairs and asbestos coming from the ceiling. Jim (John Krasinski) takes Oscar's side, much to Pam's shock, because he started making copies himself since he and Pam started dating (asking Pam to make copies makes him feel awkward) and knows how bad the copier is, while the rest of the employees side with Pam. Pam notices the copier malfunctioning when she uses it, but still wants to replace the chairs. Michael does not choose a side, because he does not want to be the bad guy, so both sides start warming up to him to win him over. Jim and Oscar take Michael out for lunch, while Pam puts on more make-up and starts to hit on Michael.

Meanwhile, Angela (Angela Kinsey) and Andy (Ed Helms) visit Schrute Farms to discuss wedding plans with Dwight (Rainn Wilson). Dwight holds a mock wedding in a barn, with Dwight playing Andy and Andy playing Angela's father. An Amish minister who only speaks German plays the minister and performs the mock-ceremony. Dwight goes through the steps of the wedding, putting a ring made of twine on Angela's finger and having them both say "I do" to each other. Angela appears to be very happy with Dwight and tells him that she made a mistake getting together with Andy. Dwight acknowledges her mistake and tells her that the mock wedding was an actual wedding since Andy technically acted as their witness and the supposedly fake minister was actually marrying them in German. He tells her that this was why he allowed her to have her wedding to Andy on his farm, and she angrily storms off. Back in the office, Angela passionately kisses Andy in front of everybody and tells him that she is going into town to take care of a "legal issue" (presumably annulling her marriage to Dwight).

Michael still remains indecisive regarding what to buy, so he brings in a third party: Hank (Hugh Dane) the security guard. However, Hank is more interested in staying in the warm office than making a decision so Michael calls CFO David Wallace to help settle the matter. David informs Michael that he has the option of turning in the surplus, which would result in him getting paid a bonus equal to 15% of it. Michael then tells the employees that he is not going to replace the copier nor the chairs, but Oscar realizes that Michael now knows about the 3rd option (Michael immediately says "645 dollars" when Oscar asks him what 15% of 4300 is but struggles to calculate 15% of 200). Michael becomes indecisive again and, unable to take the employees' intrusive behavior anymore, delegates the decision-making to them, hoping that they will be unable to come to a consensus by the day's end and enable him to take the bonus. The employees quickly decide to have the chairs replaced instead of remaining deadlocked, which upsets Michael. Later Michael is shown wearing a fur coat he had bought in anticipation of receiving the bonus, which had fake blood thrown on it by activists.

Throughout the day, Jim and Pam try to get each other to switch sides. Pam gives Jim a scare, telling him that he is on "dangerous ground". Pam is nasty towards Jim during the entire debate, which Jim seems more easygoing about. However, at the end of the episode, Jim gets back at Pam for winning the debate by reverting to his earlier practice of having Pam make copies for him.

I started using my home office today. realized the only desk chair I own is one that goodwill rejected two years ago because it had a small rip in the fabric, so it's been sitting in my garage collecting dust ever since.

I'd like a new chair. :kicksrock:

And a lamp. My office is dark.

Going to the Cubs/WhiteSox game on the south side on Friday. Hopefully I don't catch a stray bullet.

:mellow:

See you there?

No. I'd rather make sure you catch that stray bullet somewhere that there will be less witnesses.

Mediocrebeisbolhole!

The White Sox are terrible. The Cubs have one of the best records in baseball. I guess it evens out.

Cubs are also ROLLING right now. Toronto getting all the headlines, but Cubs are right there with them of late.

Glad I got in on the ground floor.

WE DID IT!

You know what's cool? Driving the next county over at 10pm because there was a cops business card on your front door when you got home. Apparently my lady bought gas on the way home and it didn't go through so the cops thought she stole it.

Wait...her card didn't go through?
Apparently yeah. It let her pump $50 worth of gas into the truck though. Cops came to my house and I had to drive out to the gas station to pay since their phones were down or some poop

Fantastic news today!!

We got the results of my wife's testing for her genetic markers for beast and ovarian cancer, plus 12 other markers that are related to cancer.

All. Came back normal!! No mutations or inconsistencies found!! Her mom died at 41 from beast cancer, so it's a big worry for my wife. It also means that my daughter is in the clear from mutated genes as well!!!

Happy day!!

Cliffs: my wife's fabulous knockers are awesome.

:thumbup:
