Amy reports on ‘the girls from Paley Center’
You probably don’t remember us, but the 4 of us met you a year ago at the Paley Center in NYC. We didn’t know each other and only began talking because we all stayed behind to meet you. A year later (by accident but literally, to the day) we got together for dinner.
In the past year, we’ve gotten together for dinner, drinks, and lunches. We’ve helped each other with job searches, we’ve gone to shows (including ‘Chicago’ to see Melora), movies, and been invited to holidays at Carly’s (and if I celebrated passover I totally would’ve gone).
When Kerry was in line to get tix to see John when he was on Jay Leno who did she email about it? Us. And when I found out I was potentially going to meet Jenna and Rainn, who did I call? Carly (she was the only # I had at the time). And after I downed a few vodka tonics and embarrassingly introduced myself to Jenna and Rainn, who did I call? Carly again. She still has the voice message to prove it. The others got the story a couple days later at an emergency “one of us met them” dinner.
It goes beyond just The Office. Lindsay is the person I went to with help on finding good summer concerts. With Kerry I finally found a friend who will talk hockey with me. Carly was even kind enough to pick me up from the Long Island airport. And I … well I’m trying my best to get us into an ‘Away We Go’ screening from my Focus Features connections (but if that falls through then I have nothing to offer them and I’ll surely be kicked out of the group).
So we just want to thank you — I’m sure we aren’t the only people the website has brought together but we wanted you to know that we’re very appreciative of the site and the friendships it’s brought us.
