I'm an Office addict and I'm not afraid to admit it.

So I haven't been doing much blogging lately cuz I've pretty much been spending all of my time watching The Office. I recently discovered the "Watch Instantly" feature on my Netflix account and it's pretty much the best thing every. I instantly watched the first four seasons of The Office right on my computer over the past two weeks. I didn't really get into The Office craze until last season, and even then I only occasionally watched it. I decided I probably wouldn't really get into it until I started at season 1 and saw where it all began. Now I'm totally addicted. For the past two weeks, if I wasn't in class, at work, or sleeping, you could find me in my room watching The Office. I just couldn't pull myself away from the computer. That show is hilarious but really touching at the same time. Like at first I really hated Michael, but I've learned to feel for the guy. He really does mean well. And I can't get enough of Jim and Pam. And don't even get me started on my love for Dwight. And now everything reminds me of something I saw on the office...and the other day I walk into my job and The Gap and the thought pops into my head, "I wonder where they buy their paper?" Seriously. I'm not even lying. Do you think they have a twelve step program for Office addicts...cuz that is just ridiculous.

So I'm done watching seasons 1-4 and now I have to wait an entire week between episodes. I'm going to have to start watching the British version (which is also on Netflix Watch Instantly) in order to deal with my Office withdrawals in between episodes.

So in the episode called "Safety Training", from season 3, there is this awesome clip where Kelly is explaining how Netflix works to Ryan. I couldn't find just that clip so this is like a 10 minute excerpt from that episode. Go to about 4:40 in the video and that's when Kelly starts talking about Netflix. I thought it was only appropriate to share this clip seeing how Netflix has fueled my Office addiction. Enjoy.
