GMMR on the set of THE OFFICE

I’m sorry…geez I can’t remember if I told you or not. Not a big deal really, but I thought I should let you know. Remember how I told you I’m in LA for the week? Yeah, well it’s because I’m going to the set of THE OFFICE?! Woo Hoo!!

Did I pull off the calm, cool and collected vibe I was going for? Nah, I didn’t think so.

Yes, I’m freaking out. And yes, it’s going to be the BEST.DAY.EVER!! Tanster from and I will be heading to the set tomorrow. Of course we will bring you all the scoop (well at least that we are allowed to share) back to you later this week. Don’t expect any spoilers from us though. Our mouths are zipped shut and we have promised Greg Daniels our first born if we leak even the tiniest bit of info. But we should have fun pics and a great story to share.

Not sure who is going to be there. I’m assuming we are going to be able to meet some of the cast. Just being inside Dunder Mifflin is good enough for me. I mean, hey, if I don’t end up playing Madden in Krasinski’s trailer…it’s all good. (Actually, there’s a good chance John won’t be on set at all…who knows).

Just a few of the things on my list that I hope to so tomorrow:

  • Sit behind the reception desk (ok, sit behind as many desks as possible)
  • Get a grape soda from the break room
  • Stand in the PLOD (Parking Lot of Doom)
  • Take a pic with Angela’s kiddie poster, Dwight’s bobblehead, and a Dundie
  • Dish gossip with Kelly Kapoor
  • Have just enough shots that I can get Jenna to leave “Dunder Mifflin, this is Kathie” on my cell phone

…and the most important thing, is to try to imagine that John Krasinski has never been to GMMR. Because honestly…ugh, how embarrassing. Ha ha!!

I’m so grateful to those involved with The Office, and those at NBC who made this happen. A special, special thanks goes out to Tanster at Office Tally for being the supreme coordinator of all things Dunder Mifflin and making this happen. She rocks!!!

    My heart is very full right now…with inexpressable jealousy.

    Just post plenty of pics. And mention me to Jenna.

    Congrats! That is so very cool. Have a ton of fun.

  2. kilwiggle7 on February 26th, 2007 2:32 pm

  3. Scott on February 26th, 2007 2:33 pm

    SHUT UP!!
    GMMR, I am so happy for you. You’ve been talking about The Office for so long now. You were the reason I got into the show in the first place. You so deserve to go (and tanster too).

  4. Mrs JBK on February 26th, 2007 2:35 pm

    I can’t even imagine how much fun you are going to have tomorrow. Take a pic of the cast on GMMR. I can’t wait to get your updates!!

  5. Melanie on February 26th, 2007 2:36 pm

    I’m soooo jealous of you. But just like SCott said, you really deserve this. Just for your Office Thursdays alone. Have fun

  6. jenna's husband on February 26th, 2007 2:40 pm

    Please take lots of pics of Jenna…she’s so hot. Have fun.

  7. Jess on February 26th, 2007 2:46 pm

  9. nic on February 26th, 2007 2:56 pm

    Um, ok, so I’m ridiculously jealous of you right now.

  10. Jaime on February 26th, 2007 2:56 pm

    Oh my God. Congratulations! I am soooooo jealous. I expect many, many, many, many pictures of John – I mean, the set.


    You’re gonna tell him about the hussies, right?

  11. jenny on February 26th, 2007 2:57 pm

    Wha….? I don’t even work on this site and words just escape me right now. You’re so cool. Like SO cool.

  12. CasualViewer on February 26th, 2007 2:57 pm

    Hopefully your digital camera will have a video feature like many do, so you can take a little footage, not just stills.

  13. chris R on February 26th, 2007 2:57 pm

    nice work. Should I be worried about you fainting before you get on set?

  14. hussy on February 26th, 2007 3:00 pm

    WIG GATE…get the scoop.
    Well deserved chica.

  15. Natalie on February 26th, 2007 3:00 pm

    Holy cow – and you didn’t spill the secret during last week’s podcast! Can’t wait to see the update – wish I could fit in your purse to come along!

  16. julie on February 26th, 2007 3:02 pm

    You are going tomorrow? I expect another big announcement in a few months and then the BIG news on November 26, 2007 (if you know what I mean)

  17. GMMR on February 26th, 2007 3:04 pm

    Huh? I’m a little confused on that one Julie??

  18. Psappy on February 26th, 2007 3:06 pm


    Kath, you are a lucky lucky biatch. But, of course way deserving of an office set visit. Just the thought of meeting JKras is insane pressure. I wish you the best and keep us posted πŸ™‚

  19. threec on February 26th, 2007 3:12 pm

    Congratulations, have a great time. I do hope you get the chance to meet as many of the cast as possible and that John K isn’t on location filming Leatherheads this week. I’ll keep my fingers crossed.

  20. Emily on February 26th, 2007 3:13 pm

    uuuh….uuuuuh….uuuuuuh….I don’t even know what to say. That is unbelieveable! I can’t wait to hear all about it! Good luck, have fun, and give John a big kiss for me! (I guess you can give him one for yourself also if you really need to πŸ˜‰ )

  21. Jo on February 26th, 2007 3:20 pm

    Rock on! I’m sure you’ll have a blast. Looking forward to pictures!

  25. Jim Mosby on February 26th, 2007 3:32 pm

    A-W-E….S-O-M-E πŸ™‚

    be sure to send my love to the cast πŸ™‚

    You two deserve that visit more than anyone in the world. I’m happy, can’t wait for the scoop that you can give us, and quite proud of you both.

    And remember….restraining orders are just another way of saying I Love You. πŸ™‚

  26. Angelica on February 26th, 2007 3:33 pm

  31. Jean on February 26th, 2007 3:48 pm

    If John isn’t there, just leave a note in his desk drawer and tell him all his Hussies love him!

  32. April on February 26th, 2007 3:56 pm

    I am SOOOOO very excited for you and Tanster (and not to mention, very jealous… hahaha). WOOT WOOT! Have fun on set. Can’t wait to read all the details and view the pics. πŸ˜€

  33. Tunalicious27 on February 26th, 2007 3:56 pm

    Oh Kath! I just might fall out of my chair with excitement for y’all! Please be sure to smell JK for me and bring us back a full report.

  34. Lauren on February 26th, 2007 4:04 pm

    you are so lucky! seriously i can’t think of any two people who deserve this more than you and Jennie! I’m so jealous that you get to spend time on the office set! take lots of pictures(especially of jk…) and have fun!

  35. Janette on February 26th, 2007 4:16 pm

    SOOOOO excited for you! Take tons of pictures and please give Jenna fisher a hug she seems so hugable!

  36. kari on February 26th, 2007 4:20 pm

    You NEED to find out about the wig. I will love you forever.

  37. Amber on February 26th, 2007 4:22 pm

    No one could be more deserving! Congrats and have a blast! We can’t wait for your return!

  38. Tunalicious27 on February 26th, 2007 4:26 pm

    Also, please hug Toby, er, Paul. And a cool souvenier? One of Stanley’s finished crossword puzzles. And please confirm that Roy has not, in fact, killed Jim Halpert.

    And thank them for making the best show on television.

    That is all. πŸ˜‰

  39. Melody on February 26th, 2007 4:42 pm

    This is SUCH incredible news. You are both so deserving of this opportunity. Have fun!

  40. Elena on February 26th, 2007 4:52 pm

    That’s amazing.

    Try not to jump John Krasinski …
    It’ll be hard and I know you’ll want to …
    And I would totally do it if I was in your position,
    But I doubt he’ll appreciate it. :-D.

    Have fun! Can’t wait to hear about your day!

  41. halfbaked on February 26th, 2007 5:14 pm

    Woooooooooo! I’m so excited for you. You absolutely deserve your peek behind the curtain.

    Tomorrow I know I will be checking GMMR every ten minutes to see if you had a chance to post anything about your Dunder-Mifflin tour.

    Have fun!

  42. MozartsFriend on February 26th, 2007 5:16 pm

    FANTASTIC!! Oh wow I am so happy for you guys really, congrats and make sure the cast and crew know how much we love them! Oh… try not to drool on John too much if you see him πŸ˜‰ (..ok maybe just a little)

  43. Elena on February 26th, 2007 5:18 pm

    Also … I’m going to LA in a couple of weeks and if you can give me a hint about where the set is located … though I know you probably can’t … I’d be much obliged.

    I was hoping to mini-stalk them … but my friend IS going to take me around to all the places that they’ve filmed outside of the studio (i.e. the church where Phyllis got married is right by where she lives).

    Anyway, once again … have fun. Ooo! and try and see if you can post something from PAM’S DESK! Even if it’s a sentence saying: this is coming from Pam Beesley’s desk.

  44. samsmom on February 26th, 2007 5:29 pm

    Holy Crap! That is so awesome GMMR. I am so happy for you. I said I was excited to hear your report from the Paley festival, but this blows that excitement out of the water.

  45. ayla on February 26th, 2007 5:57 pm

    WOW, congrats GMMR! I can’t wait to read all about it!

  46. Cips Little Bro on February 26th, 2007 5:57 pm

    congrats – just watch out for the bat feces

  47. HealthcareHottie on February 26th, 2007 6:13 pm

    I’m a little late in commenting but, HOLY CRAP, this is exciting. Have a wonderful time, take lots and lots of pictures. Maybe you can snag a souviner like one of Angela’s cat figurines. πŸ™‚

    I’m not jealous…..much.

  48. CrazyGringa on February 26th, 2007 6:18 pm

    Congrats GMMR!! I’m going ot add another “So Jealous” as if you haven’t heard it enough. Give Jkras a big hug from all of us!

  49. Crashlanding on February 26th, 2007 6:27 pm

    So cool. Congrats GMMR.

  50. Leigh Ann on February 26th, 2007 6:34 pm

    OOOOOOMG. I am toooo excited for you!!!!

    I just KNOW you are going to get to hug John. I can just feel it. OMG

    Kath!!!! Squeeeee!!!!

    Tell everyone hi from all of us!!!!

  51. GMMR on February 26th, 2007 6:40 pm

    Thanks for all the nice comments everyone. Fingers crossed that things go well. And sorry to disappoint, but I only kid about JKras. I’ve been fortunate enough to meet enough celebs to know how to keep it together…LOL

  52. Diddlee on February 26th, 2007 6:40 pm

    Ok, super congrats to you. It’s wonderful that a show that we all love will be so gracious to 2 of the people responsible for luring people to the show and expanding on that love for it. (Yeah, you both did it for me.) It’s great that you both let us live so vicarously through you through your websites.

  53. CrazyGringa on February 26th, 2007 7:03 pm

    GMMR, can you ask if they are going to be giving out autographs and talking to the fans at Paley Fest, puhlease!

  54. GreenEyes on February 26th, 2007 7:39 pm

    SHUT UP!! So excited and happy for you!! Nobody deserves it like you do – you love the show and bring us all the good news, and I’ll be so pumped to hear about your trip!! Congrats, kath! πŸ™‚

  55. mg714 on February 26th, 2007 7:44 pm

    I just had to add my excitement for you to this long list! That is so amazing and very well deserved. I know you and tanster are among the biggest Office fans in the world and I’m so happy for you guys. And you definitely have to share as much as you can (and even if J. Kras isn’t on set you just have to leave a little momento or something for him on his desk! πŸ˜‰ )

    Can’t wait to hear all about it!

  56. Whirl on February 26th, 2007 9:43 pm

    Congrats! You deserve this! I hope its everything you (and we all) dream about. Cannot wait to hear the dish…because you know I live through you.

  57. Whirl on February 26th, 2007 9:43 pm

    Congrats! You deserve this! I hope its everything you (and we all) dream about. Cannot wait to hear the dish…because you know I live through you.

  58. Mandy on February 26th, 2007 10:11 pm

    Wow!! That’s awesome! Congrats GMMR and Tanster! I can’t wait to hear what happens. πŸ™‚

  59. Angie on February 26th, 2007 10:43 pm

    Jealous much? Um yes, very much. If John reads this, then well, a lot of us are probably on his creepy list. However that shouldn’t stop you from taking lotsie pictures of JKras.

    Oh yea, John, if by some slim chance you are reading this, I think you’re dreamy. Ok, that wasn’t so bad?

  60. bubblewrap on February 26th, 2007 11:13 pm

    I can’t wait to hear about this!! πŸ˜€ I don’t know 2 people who deserve this more!

  61. TheNextKristin on February 26th, 2007 11:53 pm


    That’s really all I can say at this point.

  62. Jennifer on February 27th, 2007 12:16 am

    dear god – 61 comments! Well, let me add my squee to the list πŸ™‚ This is most exciting news!!! You may get some cool spoilers, but I’m counting on your eagle eye to catch good visual clues about upcoming episodes too. Very excited to hear about your trip to Dunder Miffin πŸ™‚

  63. Brad on February 27th, 2007 12:58 am

    Jealous doesn’t even begin to cover it. Well-deserved for both you and Tanster? Oh yes. Very much yes. πŸ™‚ Have fun!!

  64. Emma on February 27th, 2007 5:25 am

    Have fun Auntie. Say hi to JAM for me!

  65. Sus on February 27th, 2007 7:42 am

    Holy crap!

    Oh my God, I’m shaking with excitement for you!

    Have an awesome time!

  66. DerbyCity on February 27th, 2007 4:27 pm

    Wow, I don’t know how I missed this yesterday! Nothing much I can add that hasn’t already been said. But Kathie, I’m so excited for you!!! I can’t wait to see LOTS of pics and hear every last detail- no matter how minute πŸ™‚

  67. Lisa (aka lmr722) on February 27th, 2007 7:11 pm

    OMG, GMMR, did I miss you telling us about this last week? You did tell us you were going to Paley. Massively envious on all counts. Have a wonderful time and let the cast know that the buddy chatters love them!

  68. Post-it Thief on February 27th, 2007 7:34 pm

    Congrats! How are things going so far? I can’t wait for the update and I’m far too giddy over the fact that you might actually read this from The Office set.

  69. creed on March 12th, 2007 6:00 pm

    Where’s FUN??
