Tonight's the night.
Don't even THINK of trying to contact me between 8:00 and 8:30 Central Time, 'cause I won't answer the phone, my cell or be checking emails. (I will however, be continually checking my blog and Twitter for comments before and after the show, as per my usual sad evening routine in a desperate search for recognition and acceptance ...)
I'll be glued to the TV with the DVR running because the episode of "The Office" I have been waiting weeks for is finally here.
Yup. Michael is on his way to our fair city for what he THINKS is an international business trip "overseas". Why Winnipeg? Well, why not? Apparently we are just "the right balance between exotic and obscure" according to the show's writer.
Um... okaaaaay. I'll take that as a compliment.
Oh, I KNOW they will take jabs at our weather and small-city idiosyncracies... but I don't care. I mean, if you can't laugh at yourself, er, well... just pretend, because everyone else will laugh at you anyway.
At least that's what I keep telling myself.
Yes, my Winnipeg will finally be famous. Or infamous. I'll know better AFTER the episode airs.
But wait. Now I recall this isn't the first time our city has been featured on prime-time television. Homer Simpson drove here for cheap drugs a few years ago too.
Gee. I wonder if it's telling that Winnipeg is once again featured on a comedy show?
Nah. It's just a coincidence.... right?
