Hey guys, around eight hours after The Office airs, you may hear a (probably wailed) "NOOOOOOOOO!!" or 'WHYYYYYYYYY?!" piercing across the world. I am ready for the tears. I am ready to feel the need to ramble incoherently about how lonely he used to be and how difficult he found it to find someone who got him and liked him as he was. I am ready to cry during Michael-Pam scenes and Michael-Jim scenes and Michael-Dwight scenes.

I am also really not prepared.

I know I'm being irrational and overemotional but it's not my fault. I've talked about my attachment to this show. I've talked about it repeatedly. And now I hate everything. This entry is just a warning.

P.S.: Happy Endings is delightful in a frustrating kind of way - why am I enjoying this?! I don't understand! but you're making me cackle, show!!

P.P.S.: I haven't fallen for a book about love~ as hard as I fell for Bet Me by Jennifer Crusie in years. in years. The characters are charming and interesting and not-stereotypical, and the story and all the relationships keep going in different directions, and it moves quickly. The central conceit of the main 'ship barely lasts, and the main 'ship is ridiculously 'shippable - they're not "all wrong for each other, so why does he feel so right?!", there aren't lame "big secrets", and they're smart and sweet and charming and charmed, and they're normal and they like eating food and hanging out with their friends, who are also awesome. I loved it.

happy endings has been COMPLETELY delightful! I'm just hoping it gets to air it's full series order before being inevitably axed :(

BUT, for some horrid reason I'm thinking of putting together a ridiculous clip/gif/picspam pimp post so that at least the rest of my f-list can be happy about it now and sad about it later with me.

I'M NOT READY. I'M NOT READY. I haven't seen any clips either, so I'm truly going in blind and emotionally unprepared.

I'm going to add that book to my post-finals reading list! Currently it involves more ~ambitious books such as...books in French (ha) and Simone de Beauvoir (HA) so I would like to add lighter fare to it.

Also, have you read One Day by David Nicholls? I am proud to say I picked it up completely by chance, because Nick Hornby affirmed it on the cover / the blurb on the back, and I turned out to really enjoy it, and it appears to have become really, really popular everywhere. If you like Nick Hornby's books I think you'll enjoy it. :D

I came over here for the Parks and Rec love, and I saw that you like Bet Me, which is the bestest book ever. I reread it several times a year (though I haven't yet this year... hmmm....) because it is my platonic ideal romance novel. Min and Cal and their friends and the is love like a fairy tale? stuff just make my heart hurt.
