I am Pam.

I never realized until today how much I have in common with Jenna Fisher's character Pam on The Office. Sure, maybe I don't live in Scranton, PA and I didn't just break up with my fiancé of 10 years, but there are definitely similarities. For example, we have the same stapler.

And everything she says about it is true.

Looks like I can only link to her myspace page, and not the actual post, so I will also post what she said about it here. You can read it on her blog of Thursday, Oct. 19.

"In other news… a new prop appeared on my desk the other day and it is REALLY AWESOME! What is it? The PaperPro One Finger stapler. You can staple a stack of up to 15 papers with just one finger! Now, I'm kind of a stapler snob. Having been a real secretary for many years I've done my share of stapling. There is nothing more frustrating than having a stapler jam when you are in the middle of a big collating project. I only like Swingline metal desk staplers. I HATE plastic staplers. I also hate hand-held staplers. So when I saw this little PaperPro number on my desk I was skeptical. I thought, "Whoa! I don't do plastic. I want my big fellow back." (That's what she said.) I think it was Brian who got me to try it. We spent 20 minutes stapling various stacks of paper. That may not seem like very long but try staying entertained for 20 minutes using the stapler on your desk. It's not easy. Anyway, this little number makes stapling fun. All hail the PaperPro!"

Well said, Pam. It will actually staple through 30 sheets if you use 2 fingers. It's fabulous.

Scranton is actually in New Jersey. I noticed on the show last week that someone in the Stamford office made that mistake...I think they did it on purpose : )

I think the people in Scranton, PA wouldn't be very happy to hear that. There must be a Scranton in both NJ and PA, because if you google it everything about the show says Scranton, PA.

yeah ok I'm wrong. Sorry. I could have SWORN it was in NJ, but then again I also thought that Rod Stewart and Kenny G. were the same guy.

Aubrey said...

They're not? I had a roommate in college who had a creepy obsession with Rod Stewart. That's just not normal.

Courtney said...

I once had a roommate who paid $1000 to eat lunch with Michael Jackson and sing his own song to him when they met. Talk about not normal.

Aubrey said...

That's hilarious. The question is: did she sing Thriller or We Are the World?

remember? It was little Bailey's room. OK, you did paint it creme color right away but don't you remember it was pink? Maybe I'm just crazy.
