OfficeTally visiting The Office set!

As I mentioned in my previous post, updating OT in the next few days will be a difficult task.


Yes, you read that right. Yes, I am hyperventilating as I type this. Yes, I AM BEYOND EXCITED!!!

After nearly two months of politely requesting a set visit, collecting the proper letters of recommendation, and picketing NBC headquarters on the weekends, the Powers That Be have graciously agreed to let me visit the set. For the entire day!

I won’t be alone — TPTB have also allowed me to bring GMMR as a guest! Two fangirls, one set visit, let the giddy merriment commence!

I can’t promise that I will be able to update OT while I’m on set, but I will definitely post tons of good stuff (no spoilers though, sorry) from my visit once I get home. GMMR will probably have stuff posted before I do, so definitely keep both sites on your watch list!

What a surreal and wonderful experience this is going to be. :)


  1. Woah that’s awesome–This makes holding off on Officetally updates totally great!
    I guess this is the next best thing to me visiting it myself, which would never happen. Yeahh Officetally!

  2. That will be the 3rd episode after Cocktails, you should fill us in if you spot David Denman around anywhere

  3. I am soooo jealous, but incredibly happy for you! Can’t wait to hear some good stories!

  4. OH. MY. GOSH. How freaking exciting is that?!? I wouldn’t be able to sleep. And congrats to you and Kathy/GMMR on scoring a set visit! Can’t wait to see photos and hear what happened.

  5. congrats! that is very exciting…looking forward to your report back from the experience! hope you get some photos or video too to share with us all! thanks again for this great web site as well, its a lifeline for office fans!!


  6. Congratulations! With all the work you put into this site, you deserve it! :)

    Have a good time, girls!

    P.S. Any chance I could get you girls to give John Krasinski my number? ;) LOL

  7. Omi! I must “ditto” everyone else on this one. Congratulations – you totally deserve this honor! (And boy oh boy am I GREEN…)

  8. GAH! I’m so happy for you!

    There are some things that you will absolutely have to do while you are there

    1) Confirm once and for all whether there is a supply closet in the office
    2) Play hate ball
    3) eat a jelly bean and/or some of Kevin’s M&Ms
    4) touch the “World’s Best Boss” mug and play with that crazy K’nex toy ball
    5) Examine Pam’s painting and let us all know how good it really is
    6) Get Creed to play you something on his guitar
    7) Go on Office Tally from one of the office computers and post something to make us all jealous
    8) Stare at John for long, uncomfortable moments. Hey, enjoy it while he’s there.

    I’m sure there are a million other things. Yikes! This is so cool!

  9. OMG! Could we BE any more jealous on here? This is just proof that good things happen to good people who run good Office fansites! Congrats!!

  10. Congratulations!

    I’m so happy that TPTB recognize the enormous value you and GMMR add to the Office fan-base, and are rewarding you accordingly. If you get a chance, snip a lock of John’s hair for me.

    Wait, is that asking too much??

  11. Could you find out what/who all the pictures are of on everyone’s desk?? Especially on JKras’s? And possibly some high-res pics? That would be awesome!

  12. I can’t think of two people who are more deserving of this!!! Congratulations!!!!!

    I can’t wait to hear all about it and see pictures!

  13. I am totally completely 100% jealous!!! Take TONS of pictures of our beloved cast! Have an amazing wonderful fantastic time!!!

  14. lets see…how many times has the word jealous been used on here? well, once more…IM JEALOUS!!!! how are you able to function? i would be too nervous to do anything… :)

  15. So exciting! Hope you get to meet as many of our beloved Office-ites as possible (and that John K isn’t on location filming Leatherheads this week).

    Enjoy every minute!

  16. OH MY GOSH JENNIE!!! That is awesome! I am so happy and excited for the both of you!! I am hyperventilating with you! That’s dawesome!! I can’t wait to read all about it! :)

  28. HOLY SMOKES! that’s great news! thanks for keeping the spoilers to a minimum, but do tell us how lunch is. mmmm… oh, and if you can, you should LEAVE something in the office (like add something to the bookshelves or add a plaque or a custom OT sticker to the wall) so we have something to look for…

  29. You two definitely deserve to go. I’m excited for ya and I can’t wait to read all about it!

  30. Jennie, nobody deserves this more than you!! You are the most dedicated Office fan there is, not only to the cast but to us fellow fans. We love you!!! Congratulations and have a great time!!!

  31. soo happy for you. fangirls dreams do come true. Have soo much fun we are all so happy for you!

  32. Horray! How fun…behind you stand zillions of fans who LOVE the Office! I feel like you are representing all of us and we will all be with you, on your little shoulders! Take lots of notes and share what you can.

  33. Wow, that is amaaa-zing (Kelly)!!! I’ve never commented before, but I’ve been a faithful visitor to your fine site since Casino Night, and obviously you and GMMR totally deserve this. I’m super excited for you both! It couldn’t have happened to two more deserving people. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

  34. wow! have fun! i am envious.
    you should take those fake badges from the office that you can buy on eBay and have everyone autograph them! rock on!

  35. I am so pumped for you! So, you better bring back some cool info and pics if you can do that! I cannot wait to hear how it was.

    While your there: Tell the whole cast how much us fans love them! They are the best!

    Congrats and good luck!!!! YEAH!

  36. That is fantastic! You guys deserve it. Have tons of fun. Can’t wait to hear how it all went.


    I’m so happy for you! I wouldn’t know what to do with myself if I got an opportunity like that! Probably just giggle, blush, and stammer all day long! I cannot wait to hear all about it! Every sentence has an exclamation point because it’s just so exciting!


  38. …tried to send my congrats earlier but with no luck…so I will say again “Smooch Creed for me”!!!
    Well-deserved & if they don’t roll out the red carpet for you I will be very surprised!

  39. Oh my gosh! THis is TOOO COOOOL! You are one lucky girl! While you are there, tell the cast we love them!! Jenna, is my idol && John. He is too adorable. Rainn is hilarious, and so is Steve. They are an amazing group of people! Bring us back some great photos!

  40. That’s awesome. :) Maybe Jenna will let you update the Web site from her computer at her desk after they’re done shooting. :D

  41. Wow, even with the restraining order they’re letting Kath go? (Kidding!) I’m so insanely jealous-I hope you get lots and lots of pics and have fun at the Paley’s!

  42. Congrats!! You’re gonna have a super great time!! Try not to pass out! ;)

  43. I…I have no words….Lucky Dog does come to mind..There are some other words too..But I mean them in the most loving and jealous way!!!! :)

  44. SOOOOO LUCKY!!!! Congratulations, you deserve it!!! You guys must keep us all posted. I’m so excited for you!

  45. Could you run up and give jenna fisher a kiss for me?

    I know you’re a girl, just a favor for me plz :P

  46. Right on! You gotta let us know if Ricky Gervais is as funny in person as he is…oops, wrong Office.

    Seriously, major congrats and hope you have a friggin ball. Is it too much to ask for a paperclip off Pam’s desk?


  47. Wow, congrats and I cant wait to hear/see what it was like.
    If you are allowed to take photos, you most definitely must do so. And videos will be sweet as well! (Sneak some with a cell phone!).
    I am happy for you!

  48. Have a great time, Tanster. While you’re at it, see if you can skillfully and subtly ask if there really is going to be a six week hiatus until the next episode! This is your opportunity to represent the needs and questions of Office fans everywhere. Just like a Senator…from a really cool state.

  49. Oh my!

    Of course, as “Tanster of OfficeTally” a set visit is a must. You both truly deserve it and I hope the entire experience is as amazing as it sounds. Don’t forget to tell everyone (especially Jenna) how much we appreciate the show.

  50. Wow – that’s awesome, Jennie. Congrats. Have a great time. I can’t wait to read about it.


  51. Tanster, that’s awesome! I want to hear all about it when you get back!
    Enjoy every minute :D

  52. OMG!
    I’m so jealous. That’s great news. Make us proud!

    Don’t forget to wear something cute. : )


    if it were someone else, i would be completely and utterly envious. but since it’s you two, i am so happy for you guys!

    please. =]

  54. Nice! That is fantastic news. I shall have to live vicariously through what is sure to be a ridiculously ridiculous day for you two.

    Congratulations, again. I can think of no two people more deserving. :)

  55. I hate you because I’m jealous… I love you because I would never be able to visit the set and every day, you bring a little joy from The Office to me.

  56. WOW…oh my gosh, you are SOOOO SERIOUSLY LUCKY!! LOL! Congrats on the great news and I hope you have a wonderful time. :) If you meet John, give him a BIG hug from me, LOL. :P When you come back and update, please be sure to give us all the details!! :P

  57. Very well deserved, Jennie. Jenna is always mentioning how she hears about Office stuff from your site, so it makes sense that you would get the opportunity to visit the set. What a great reward for all your efforts on this site. Way to go and we will be living through all the words and pictures you post!! :)

  58. You’re not lucky – you’ve earned it. Your website is amazing and I visit it at least once a day. No other ‘Office’ fan sites compare. Congratulations. I hope you enjoy your visit!

  59. WOOHOO!! That is WONDERFUL news – you (and GMMR) so deserve it. I go to your site before any others for Office news and updates!!

    Enjoy EVERY SINGLE MINUTE! These opportunities come along once in a life time. Savor it!! WOOHOO!!

    Make sure to scratch “OFFICETALLY.COM” somewhere on set so that it gets on camera…;) LOL (and don’t forget to sit in Jim’s chair)


  60. I’m beyond jealous! I want to see your picture with the bobblehead. Have an awesome time! You’re so deserving of this. I love your site!

  61. Congratulations, Jennie! Suggested bring-along items:

    Paper bag (hyperventilation)
    Videographer, because you may not remember a thing
    Assistant (I happen to be free that day. What day was it?)

  62. If this has been requested already, I apologize, but Jennie can you confirm if in the next new episode it will be real time and if so how will they handle the Roy/Jim outcome? No specifics or giving anything away, I guess what I really want to know is the timing – real, real w/back flash, other?

  63. I am so very happy for you!! I love this website and thank you very much for doing it. Have a great time and enjoy every second!!! We will all be looking forward to the news that you will be getting. Thanks again!!!

  64. It’s 7:44 here in my part of the world, 3:44 California time, and I’m wondering what’s happening with you and GMMR on The Office set at this moment. Looking forward to hearing all the details.

  65. I, like Kim, am waiting for an update! I’m glad I’m not the only one with The Office on the brain. I hope you guys are having a good time!
