Babies sap ear strength, don't they? You can look it up, right? (I got your back, KarenM, don't I?)

Phyllis has a fairly interesting talking head in the second deleted scene for Beach Games. Teehee.

May 14th 2007

Her list is eerily close to mine.

May 14th 2007

She's the female Creed methinks. What's crazier? That a. she has a list, or b. Jim's on it.

May 14th 2007

Wait...do most people not have a list? I have a list. And Jim is definitely on it.

May 14th 2007

B, for sure. All girls have lists. It's just when it includes the young man you work with who you know is into the receptionist that you have problems. At least Bob knows. Maybe Pam is on his list, and they're cool with that.

Phyllis has moments of sheer brilliance this year and that talking head was one of them.

And those lists are crap. Chances are about 8 hundred million billion to one that I'm going to meet Jessica Alba or Jenna Fischer or Anna Kournikova and talk one of them into having sex with me. Or America Ferrera for that matter. Chances are significantly better that any decent looking girl can throw herself at a celebrity and get a little play.

May 14th 2007

Wow. We have more in common than just our "name," then ;-)

Wait, are you insinuating that Jessica Alba isn't easy?

Probably. Odds are more like only a billion to one.

Abso-freakin-lutely not crazy!! I see nothing wrong with Phyllis' having Jim on her "eye candy" list. Would you think it strange if a 50-ish guy had Pam on his "eye candy" list?

I work in an office where, until recently, everyone has been in the 40+ age range. We recently added a Java programming project and have had a raft of new hires ... all of them in their mid 20's. I love having these "kids" around. They've infused the place with a new liveliness. And, even though I could be their mother ... albeit a young mother ... it has not escaped my attention that some of the young men are distinctly more pleasant on the eyes than the majority of my co-workers. I'm not thinking any lewd or lascivious thoughts about them but let's just say it often makes me smile when I walk by their cubes!

Well, you should be!

Hey, she's Michael's age.

May 15th 2007

Hmm ... was I off by a few years?

This is unbelievable. I have been doing this all evening! I think I am more addicted to NA than I am to The Office. Gotta go to bed.

It's a touchy subject for Phyllis.

My daily trivia for today had this tidbit.

Q. What was the first U.S. food product sold in an aerosol can?

A. Reddi-wip. It was developed in 1947 by St. Louis milkman Aaron "Bunny" Lapin, and first distributed by milkmen.

Isn't it interesting that we know of another Lapin from the St. Louis area? I wonder if they're related? Now I have something to talk to Phyllis about if I ever meet her. Actually two things. The first thing I'd ask about would be her days as a burlesque dancer.

Phyllis' thread, coming alive!

Jul 22nd 2009

Was just watching Arrested Development and saw Phyllis in a board meeting. Coolio.

Jul 22nd 2009

Other AD- Office sightings: Ed Helms, Craig Robinson, Rob Riggle...I'm sure there are others I'm not remembering at the moment.

Jul 22nd 2009

Patrice O'niel... if I am correct.

So with Phyllis doing some promo for Bad Teacher, this photo started popping up:

.

I didn't believe it at first, because Phyllis Vance is supposed to be the same age as Michael. Turns out Phyllis Smith is actually 60. I did not know that.

Jun 29th 2011

Wow! Go Phyllis. As I mentioned on the movie thread, she was good in Bad Teacher and her part was significant.

The Real Deal on Phyllis Smith

That photo two posts up isn't really her, but if you click the link, you'll see two photos of Phyllis as a burlesque dancer.
