Blogging from the Convention

I am going to be posting some Office Convention reports — audio clips, photos, even video! — via Utterz, which lets me blog on-the-go right from my cell phone.

Everything I post will end up in the widget below. Just press the Play button!

A kind thank you to the Utterz folks for setting me up!

Note: if you’re having trouble seeing the widget here at OT, go to my Utterz page.

Don’t forget is also live-blogging throughout the weekend:

  1. Tanster I’m loooooving the updates, it’s like I’m there in spirit! I’m staying glued to OfficeTally all weekend long so I don’t miss a second of the funtivities at the Office Convention!

    PS- The computer/lady voice is the best when it/she says,”Ain’t no party like a Scranton party ’cause a Scranton party don’t stop!”

    Keep the updates coming! :)

  2. Thanks so much!! You’re the best. I love how the creepy lady voice says Scranton like “Screntin” or something.

  3. Hhhaaaa I love Scrinton!!

    Thanks Cleo for keeping everything up and running for the rest of us while your mom is off partying in scrinton.

  4. The widget wouldn’t work for me (probably something to do with our security here at work), so I went to Utterz and clicked on “Get started” and then the “People” tab at the top, scrolled down to “Tanster 2” and once I clicked I got everything.

    Just wanted to pass along in case anyone else had trouble with the widget too.

    Great job, Jennie, as usual – can’t believe you are taking the time to post all this stuff when you could be partying “Scranton-style”! You are too nice!

  5. This is so great Jennie! Thanks for helping those of us who couldn’t make it feel like we’re a part of everything.

  6. Thank you so much Tanster! We all appreciate you recording updates since we can’t be there with you. Have a great time for all of us. You are a Great rep for all of us hardcore Office Fans.

  7. That’s hilarious when the computer voice starts chanting “Ain’t no party like a Scranton party, cause a Scranton party don’t stop!”

  8. Cleo is so cute! :)

    I’m so happy you’re keeping this updated. I’m sad I can’t go! Have a great time!

  9. cute kitty! i am so sad i couldn’t make it to the convention, and i only like like 3 hours away!!!

  10. I have to say a big thank you to you Tanster for the great Office Tally t-shirts! I wore mine today and Ken Kwapis recognized the shirt and said hello to me. I was super thrilled and excited and said what a great web site Office Tally is – and of course what a great show the Office is! Thank you Thank you!

    [from tanster: so awesome. thank YOU!]

  11. So cute! Haha kitty! Is this computer talking to you video thing cracking anyone else up?… Scratin… I swear its saying ScrantIN. “get out of my offive.” I love it! I so wish I was there with all y’all. Tanster you are amazing and thank you for bringing all of us together who can’t be there! Love Office fans!

  12. You guys are so lucky to be at the convention! The computer voice is a bit freaky, but hilarious. Reminds me of Michael’s computer friend.

  13. This is wicked awesome, tanster! Thank you so much for doing this for us poor saps who are stuck at home for the weekend!

  14. agreed that the computer voice is uber creepy. However, when she says “ain’t no party like a Scranton party, cause a Scranton party don’t stop!” it really sounds like she’s getting into it! lol

  15. Thank you for updating! Your efforts are so very appreciated by those of us who can’t be there. Yay Office Love!

  16. Tanster, this is awesome!! I can’t stop laughing. I think Harvey found a new girlfriend. Can you please say: “Welcome to my off-five” or “Boobs” – it would be hysterical. Thanks for the updates.

    [from tanster: the computer voice is now a celebrity — woo!]

  17. Aww, your kitty is adorable! I hope I’ll get to see you tomorrow. These videos are getting me terribly excited, thank you Tanster!

  18. Wow, I am loving that computer voice.

    My favorite:
    “She took pictures with them, signed autographs, gave shout-outs, in short, gave a ton of love. Smiley.”

    Thanks so much for blogging all this for us!!

  19. I love how the computer said “smiley” in place of the smiley face. It cracked me up. Also, I didn’t know a place called “Scrinton” existed. ;) Thanks for this, Tanster. Though I am not physically there, I am there spiritually. Send my love to the cast!

  20. How fittin’ that Harvey’s girlfriend should be our virtual guide to the Office convention.

    Wish I was there, but this is the next best thing!

  21. I’m at The Office Convention too! I’m staying at The Hilton, so I’m definitely going to the Bloggers Breakfast. Can’t wait to meet you if I do.

  22. Hey, you all…Cleo is doing an awesome job with all of the Officetally stuff while Tansters away, right? Gotta love those kitties with opposable thumbs.


  23. Hey Jennie — it was lovely to meet you last night (I’m the short girl in black who loves your “no bad English” comment policy). Hope I wasn’t too, too obnoxious, but you really are a rock star. Thanks for sharing your love and devotion to this show with the rest of us.

  24. The computer voice is too hilarious. Scrintin.
    Thank you so much for all of the amazing coverage! Makes me feel a little better about missing all the fun.
    In the spirit of the Office Convention, I’m dressing as 3-Hole-Punch kla for a Halloween party tonight.

  25. Thanks so much for the updates. That computer voice is pretty funny saying woo. Wish I was there!!

  26. You’re rocking the casbah with these blog reports. Rocking the casbah.

    Anyway, I hope you have the best of fun!

  27. Man, I wish I was there. Seems like a lot of fun, keep on coming with those updates Tanster!!!

  30. I also love the “woo” from the computer. Also “Scrinton”. Anyway, I am loving these updates Tanster! Thanks so much.

  31. Look, Jennie – I’m finally de-lurking! ;) That computer voice was creepy, but at least it pronounced my name right, which is more than I can say for some humans! haha Thanks for including our picture, and thanks especially for not making it the one from the airport! LOL

    [from tanster: yay, another lurker de-lurked! yes, i couldn’t use the picture from the airport. glad we had more. ;) ]
