The Weekend Tally

Tipsters: Phyllis’ Pants, Jasmine, Jessica, Jennifer, Kirk, Jackie


  1. I would’ve entered that Sierra Mist contest if it were available to where I lived. That kind of sucked. But, congrats to the winner! I hope they write about their experience & let us know what happens. :)
    Also, woo! Angela & Todd Packer on Monk! Sweet! I watch that show all ready and now I’ll get to see them. That would be interesting if they were on an episode where Trudy a.k.a Melora Hardin would be on. :)

  2. The air date for Angela on Monk is July 27th and the episode is called Mr. Monk and The Naked Man. Can’t wait to see her in Monk!

  3. I saw the Get Smart trailer while watching Harry Potter last week. It was funny and looks good. I’m going to see it no matter what since Get Smart was one of my favorite shows.

  4. Yeah, that Get Smart trailer got a lot of laughs when it was shown in front of Harry Potter…even in a crowd where 90% of the people present were about two generations too young to know the original!

  5. Like Jules (#5), I saw the “Get Smart” preview before HP, and laughed hysterically! I had doubts about the movie (I’m not familiar with the television show), but after seeing just that little trailer, it looks great! When that beaded curtain broke, I just lost it. Looks like a great role for Steve!!!

  6. Congrats to the walk on winner! That makes two OT readers that have won major stuff associated with The Office. I won the eBay auction for the VIP set visit because I read about it here. Of course, I could still afford to eat and clothe myself if I hadn’t. Bah, minor inconveniences.

  7. Haha, I was thinking Carol Burnett would be great as Michael’s mom! She totally would have dressed him in those little suits and given him the good boy complex. :-)

  8. I entered that Sierra Mist contest religiously. And I knew the odds of winning were long, but what bugged me was I never heard who won. So it was nice to come on here and see not only that there was a winner but that it was an OT’er to boot. Congrats.

  9. How do you think John would feel about a boy in a cardigan? Because I can certainly fill those shoes. ; )

  10. OH yeah, the UBHO, my friends and I (all Office fans) laughed so hard during the beaded curtain part of the trailer.

    And did anyone notice, Leslie got a Myspace? Not sure if it’s really him, but I saw it on Kate’s top friends…

  11. i hope that bidder 12 and walk on winner keep us updated!

    …and i sense a spike in the sales of cardigans all around the country.

  12. I am very happy that an OT reader won the walk-on role. I entered every day and if I couldn’t win, I’m glad one of my fellow Tallyheads could!

  13. I vote Carol Burnett for Jim’s mom, I could see them having great chemistry.

  14. “His newfound success hasn’t translated into love from his female fans. “Everyone looks at Jim and says, ‘Awwww.’ It’s not like girls want to be with the indecisive guy,” he says.”

    He obviously skips his posts on OfficeTally, because it seems like he is completely in the dark about how much the ladies love him. Hello?!? On the TWOP forum, his thread is named John Krasinski: We’d Climb Him Like A Tree.

    Jim might be indecisive, but women aren’t! They love their JKras! :-)

  15. I love Carol Burnett and I think she would be excellent as Jim’s Mom (or maybe even Michael’s mom), but one of the many many things that I like about The Office is that it doesn’t really have big guest stars. I like it because it’s not distracting and in too many other shows, it’s just a vehicle to get people to watch. I like to think that The Office wouldn’t stoop to those type of tactics to gain viewership; its not honest and then it’s not really about the show.

    Furthermore, it would just be weird to have a star make an appearance on a mockumentary, unless one of the characters actually came upon the star like: “Oh look, there’s Carol Burnett!! Carol Burnett, I’m such a huge fan.” I could definitely see some interesting interactions between Dwight and Carol Burnett. (It’s making me chuckle right now)

  16. I agree with you BlueJeanBaby. Having a big star guest on The Office would be a distraction.

    However, if Carol Burnett were to guest star, there is only one role for her: Dwight’s nazi war criminal grandmother.

  17. I’ll knit John Krasinski his own cardigan, and then we can match! ;P

  18. Carol Burnett is 73 YEARS OLD!!!!

    She is NOT Jim’s mom.

    Maybe his GRANDMOTHER, but not his mom.

    I would LOVE to see her as Creed’s Mom though…
    Maybe she could live in a dumpster!

  19. BJB – I agree! I like Carol Burnett, but big name guest stars on TO doesn’t fit. That was what initially attracted me to the show – no big names and a lot of talent and humor. Famous guest stars would cheapen it a little.
