From Jenna Fischer’s MySpace blog, dated October 17, 2008:
I wanted to respond to Angela’s latest blog earlier but…I was sleeping. To illustrate my frustration with Angela’s diet choices I offer you the following.
This is a real conversation from behind-the-scenes of The Office between me, Mindy and Angela.
The cast was in the conference room doing the buffet scene for the Weight Loss episode. Mindy and I were discussing our favorite recipes and the joys of cooking with a crock pot. Angela, who was sleep deprived and loopy, was standing nearby.
Mindy: How often do you cook dinner?
Jenna: Pretty much every night now.
Mindy: What’s your favorite meal?
Jenna: Probably stuffed peppers in the crock pot. I love crock pot meals.
Mindy: Yeah, I want to learn how to cook some of those.
Jenna: Oh my God, they are great! You throw a bunch of stuff in there and let it cook all day.
Brian: That’s what she said.
Mindy/Jenna: Thanks, Brian. Gross.
Mindy: Weren’t you using that delivery service for awhile?
Jenna: Yeah, it was cool but I prefer cooking.
Mindy: Doesn’t that take a lot of time?
Jenna: Yeah, but it’s so satisfying. I dunno. I just like it better.
Angela: Me too!!! I LOVE butter! I put it on everything! I can’t get enough!
Angela: I love butter! Didn’t you just say you like butter?
Jenna: No, I said, ‘I like it BETTER’.
Jenna: Yeah, believe it or not, we were not having a conversation about how much butter we eat.
