Distractions, But

It's been a little
chaotic, but it's
fine. It's great.

A lot of distractions, but
it's good.

Inside jokes aside (ahem), this is fun.

Nov 20th 2006

Is the fact that I've
participated in both
covert operations,
weeks ago
and today,
a comment on the frequency
of my visits here?

I regret so.

(not poetry at all. But I like the short margins.)

An Ode to Pam's Breasts: A Michael Scott Perspective

by Michael Scott

with Jenna Loves Josh

What do you like best
about Pam?
Is it her
legs, her

The next time
you're in the shower,
you should check
yourself out.
You know,
give yourself an exam.
Those things are like
Ticking Time Bags.

Let me describe the perfect date.
I take her out to a nice dinner.
She looks amazing.
Some guy tries to hit on her.
Now he wants to fight.
So I grab him,
I throw him into a jukebox.
Then the other ninja’s got a knife,
he comes at me,
we grapple,
I turn his knife on him.
Blood on the dance floor.
She’s scared now.
I take her home.
I’m holding her in my arms.
I reach in for a kiss.
I hear something in the leaves.
I flip her around,
she gets a poison arrow
She was in on it the whole time.

But I knew.

Hehe. This is fun.

now we're friends

what brings the kids
is hating the lunch lady.

Although that’ll change.

by the end
of the fourth grade,
the lunch lady was
the person
I hung out with
the most.

Basketball Machine

When I am playing hoops
all of the stress
and responsibility
of my job here
just melts away.
It's gone.

I'm in the zone.

Who am I?
Am I Michael Scott?
I don't know...
I might just be
a basketball machine.

What’s Dunder Mifflin?
I’ve never heard of it.
Who cares?

Possible downsizing?

Football and basketball

Football is like rock and roll
It's just bam bam boom

and basketball
is like jazz, you know?
You’re kind of
dupa-do, dupa-do,
it’s all downbeat,
it’s in the pocket,
it’s like
da doo duh doo doo do do-doo...

Prison Mike

Dou you really expect me
to not push you up against the wall, biatch?
All right, hey, hey, hey, hey...
that's just the way we talk in da clink.

Been a lot of fun talk about prison today,
but I am here to scare you straight.

In prison you are somebody's bitch.
Oh, and you, you, my friend,
You'd be da belle of da ball.
Don't drop the soap!
Don't drop the soap!

Prison stinks,
is what I'm sayin'.
It's not like you can go home
and recharge your batteries
and come back in the mornin'
and be with your friends
having fun in the office.

The worst thing about prison
was the--was the dementors.
They--were flyin' all over the place
and they were scary and
they would come down and
they would suck the soul out of your
body and it hoyt.

...No, not Hawy Pottuh...
there are no movies in prison.

This is my point:
You guys got it soft.
And cushy.
This place is freaking awesome;
the people are awesome;
your boss is nice;
everybody seems to get along;
people are tolerant.
People who would jump to conclusions
can redeem themselves.
Nobody's nobody's bitch.

I hope that this scared you.
And from me, Prison Mike, to you
I just wanna thank you
for listening to me
and letting me be a part of ya life today.
'Cause you got a good life!
You got a good life.

A good life.

Awesome. Now we can relive the inspirational words at will.

Baby Mike

Hey, look at me,
I’m a baby!
I’m one of those babies
from “Look Who’s Talking.”

What am I thinking?

Look at all those staplers.
What’s a stapler?
I don’t even know.
I’m a baby.

Hey mom
I’m thirsty.
I’m thirsty.
Mama, I want some milk.
And you know
where milk comes from.

The foul-mouthed Will Shakespeare used an expletive in sonnet 20:

A woman's face with nature's own hand painted,
Hast thou, the master mistress of my passion;
A woman's gentle heart, but not acquainted
With shifting change, as is false women's fashion:
An eye more bright than theirs, less false in rolling,
Gilding the object whereupon it gazeth;
A man in hue all hues in his controlling,
Which steals men's eyes and women's souls amazeth.
And for a woman wert thou first created;
Till Nature, as she wrought thee, fell a-doting,
And by addition me of thee defeated,
By adding one thing to my purpose nothing.
But since she prick'd thee out for women's pleasure,
Mine be thy love and thy love's use their treasure. *

Trash like this is why you only study sonnet 18 in high school. And that concludes my insertion of expletives into perfectly innocent threads.

Succession Planning

Jim Halpert.
Pros: smart, cool, good-looking.
Remind you of anybody you know?
Cons: not a hard worker.

I can spend all day on a project, and
he will finish the same project
in a half an hour.
So that should tell you something.

Dwight is an obvious candidate
for my job.
He has the best sales record in the office.
He loves the work.
He is, however, an idiot.

Andy Bernard.
Pros: he’s classy.
He gets me. He went to Cornell.
I trust him.
Cons: I don’t really trust him.

Bros before hos.

Because your bros are always there for you.
They have got your back
after your ho
rips your heart out
for no good reason.

And you were nothing

but great to your ho
and you told her
she was the only ho for you. And
that she was better
than all the other hos in the world.

And then...

and then suddenly
she's not yo' ho

The Confession
I was just...
I'm in love with you.
I'm really sorry if that's weird for you to hear,
but I needed you to hear it.

Probably not good timing,
I know that. I just...
I just needed you to know.


Don't do that.
Come on. I don't wanna do that.
I wanna be more than that.

Not your fault.
I'm sorry I misinterpreted...

our friendship.

I haven't heard anything,
but I bet Jim got the job.
I mean, why wouldn't he?

He's totally qualified,
and smart,
everyone loves him...

and, if he never comes back again...
that's OK.

We're friends.

And I'm sure we'll stay friends.
We just, we never got the timing right.
You know?

I shot him down,
and then he did the same to me,
But you know what?

It's OK.

I'm totally fine.
Everything is gonna be totally---

I'm sorry, what was the question?

eta: I don't know if I did it right
