Dinner with Angela

The Office Angela Kinsey

I had a lovely dinner with Ms. Angela Kinsey tonight in San Francisco. We talked about ‘Fun Run,’ home renovation, and The Office’s dedicated fanbase. (Of course.)

A few little ‘Fun Run’ tidbits:

“She’s been sick for some time … thank you for asking” was said directly to Greg Daniels, and was improvised.

Angela’s little conversation ender with Pam (“Did Roy ever kill one of your cats?”) was also improvised.

Did Angela break at some point during ‘Fun Run’, and did it make it on air? YES. (Watch the episode again and tell me if you see it.)

A special thank you to our waiter, who took extra good care of us!

I get to spend the day with Angela tomorrow, and I’m not sure where we will be or when. But if one of us comes up to you on the street and asks, “Do you know what ‘Dwangela’ means?”, you better be ready with an answer. ;)

  1. That is so super cool. I glad that you had an amazing time, Tanster… I want to thank you for all your hard work!!! :)


  2. first comment! tanster you’re the coolest!

    I wish office people would hang out with me! I’d probly want to hang with ed helms or john krasinski, they seem like guys you could just hang out with.

  3. Was it in the hospital when everyone was visiting Meredith? Otherwise i cant find it :(

    I hope you have fun tomorrow Tanster! :)

  4. I just got finished watching fun run over again & felt like coming on to your site. God! You are so lucky to have dinner with Angela!! I’ve watched the episode 2 times, but I still don’t know what part Angela breaks :(

  5. I think i found the part?? When Michael is trying to hug Merideth in the hospital, she looks like she’s about to break.

  6. I just booked a flight from Seattle to San Francisco. It cost me both arms and both legs, so if you see an armless/legless man rolling around, please ask if he knows what “Dwangela” means.

    I can always tell where Angela breaks. And it always makes the scene more funny…

    Give her a hug for me. I feel so badly about Pringles :(

  7. That’s awesome, tanster. Have fun beatin’ the street with Miss Kinsey. I can’t wait to get the full report/see it all on NBC.com. Exciting stuff!

  8. You girls look so beautiful together!

    Tanster, you deserve such an awesome experience–I wish I was in San Francisco to be man-on-the-street stopped by you.

    Can’t wait for the next update :)

  9. Ladies – Have a blast taking over San Fran. Office fans in that area are in for a real treat if the two of you are just walking around talking to people!

  10. How jealous am I? I love Angela, and that is awesome. She always seems so fun and friendly and nice.
    And if you come up to me on the streets (pretty hard since you are in SF and I am 3,000 miles away), I totally know what Dwangela means!

  11. Tanster that is so cool! I wish I was roaming the streets of Santa Monica so you asked me I could answer “Jim and Pam. DUH.” haha justtt kidding(: Dwight & Angela foreverr!

  12. Yes! I saw her break on air! It was when Michael was climbing on top of Meredith on her hospital bed and it was ever-so-slightly but it was definitely noticeable. Absolutely hilarious.

  13. The only time I think it might be is when Michael goes to straddle/hug Meredith in the bed and everyone is saying “Michael!”, Angela looks like her serious face turns into a slight smile.. maybe I’m hallucinating.
