Angela stops by OTCR

The Office Angela Kinsey

I know this is a cliche thing to say, but Angela LOVES THE FANS. After spending a very busy day with Angela yesterday, she was determined to take some time to come into OTCR.

She was a trouper to stay in the chat room for nearly 20 minutes, because every few minutes the room would log her out! Grrr, so frustrating!

Angela talks about ‘Fun Run,’ upcoming storylines, the EW photo shoot, and asks some interesting questions.

Following is an abbreviated transcript of her visit. I didn’t get to follow along yesterday, so I’m reading it for the first time today. Thanks, you guys, for being so awesome to Angela!

And Angela, as always, thank you SO MUCH for taking the time to come in to OTCR and chat with us!

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. ;)

OfficeTally in the news

Our local paper, the Mercury News, posted a nice article (with photos even!) about my obsession with this thing called OfficeTally.

There are a few people I’d like to thank: Merc reporter Mark de la Viña for listening to me prattle on about the show for hours, Angela Kinsey and Kent Zbornak, for taking the time to provide some amazing quotes, and last but not least, the hardworking and dedicated folks at for bringing this story to Mark in the first place!

P.S. A shout-out, too, to Michael Schur, who also provided quotes for the story that were unfortunately not included. My favorite — when asked “What sort of contact have you had with Jennie?”, Michael replied, “I did a lengthy Q and A with Jennie a few months ago, and it was brutal. She raked me across the coals. It was like Mike Wallace going after a tobacco company lawyer.” Giggle.

Matt and Mosby giveaway

No, I’m not giving away Matt and Mosby. (Although on some days, that’s not a half-bad idea.)

In honor of premiere night, OfficeTally’s chat room moderators Matt and Mosby are giving away Office goodies from noon to 8pm PT today, one prize an hour more or less.

I have no idea how they’re deciding who wins what. But you do have to be present in the chat room to find out. I hope they behave themselves.
