I'm Back... - Give Me My Remote : Give Me My Remote

I’m Back…

February 28, 2007 by  

There are no words for the day Tanster and I just had on the set of The Office. It was the most amazing experience. Everyone was there…and everyone was beyond fantastic. Of course I’m going to be writing more, but Tanster and I are going to try to coordintate our posts a bit, so please be patient. I promise I’ll be writing more over the next few days. For now…I need some sleep – it was a long day.

Update: The only bad part of the day? How about when I finally got on set and realized that I left the battery to my camera charging in my hotel room? I was so bummed. Luckily Tanster was kind enough to take a bunch of pics for me. She’ll be sending the rest on soon, but she managed to send one along last night that I thought I would share with you.

    CONGRATS!!!! Glad it lived up to the hype and that everyone was cool. Cannot wait to hear all the details!!!

  2. Sarah on February 28th, 2007 12:09 am

    Ah! I’ve been obsessively checking GMMR all day to hear how it went, and now you’re back. I’m so happy for you (and jealous) and am extremely pleased to know that EVERYONE was there (JKras, I’m thinking of you). Have a good nights sleep, but please post some details tomorrow!

  3. Susan M. on February 28th, 2007 12:16 am

    Awesome! I guess the mass finger-crossing in the Officesphere for Krasinski meetage worked! Here’s hoping for LOTS of pictures! 🙂

  4. CrazyGringa on February 28th, 2007 12:32 am

    Oh GMMR, I am so glad everything went great! I hope you can get some sleep, cause I know I can’t sleep after an exciting day. I can’t wait to hear the details and see the pics!

  5. austin360 on February 28th, 2007 12:41 am

    Awesome! Is John going to be at the Paley panel on Friday? *crosses fingers*

  6. GMMR on February 28th, 2007 12:47 am

    No he won’t be there

  7. LiberryLady on February 28th, 2007 1:21 am

    Okay, I’m releasing my pent-up squee here:


    Yay, you! Congrats, Kath! Looking forward to the dish!

  8. sorano916 on February 28th, 2007 1:24 am

    Very exciting, Kath. I can’t wait to read a write-up and pictures, of course. You and Jennie were probably on Cloud 9. I’m glad that you enjoyed. Now, go get some sleep, girl!

  9. GMMR on February 28th, 2007 1:29 am

    Yeah, I’m beat. We spent a lot of day essentially watching tv, but with the excitement of the day I am sooo ready for bed.

  10. CasualViewer on February 28th, 2007 1:35 am

    Did you ask him if he had something in his pocket?

  11. LaLa on February 28th, 2007 1:38 am

    Yaaaay Kath!! I am sooo so happy for you that it was awesome, and that EVERYONE was there. 😉 Can’t wait to hear all about it!

  12. secondrink on February 28th, 2007 2:06 am

    Joy of joys! So happy for you 🙂 Eeek!

  13. len on February 28th, 2007 2:47 am

    Awesome !!!

  14. EverybodyHurts on February 28th, 2007 5:55 am

    Finally, finally, Kath, it happened! So excited for you! Can’t wait to hear the scoop!

  15. King on February 28th, 2007 7:14 am

    We are dying to hear it all!

  16. Sus on February 28th, 2007 7:31 am

    Squeeeee!!!! 😀

    Can’t wait to hear ALL about it!

  17. Tunalicious27 on February 28th, 2007 7:40 am

    Kath-seriously, I wanna cry right now, I’m so happy for you! Can’t wait to hear about everything!

  18. Bonnie on February 28th, 2007 7:46 am

    Oh.My.God. This is freaking awesome. I’m just so thrilled for you!

  19. Leigh Ann on February 28th, 2007 8:08 am

    Oh how absolutely wonderful for you!!! Awwww… what a fantastic picture!!!!


  20. Jacki on February 28th, 2007 8:19 am

    SO COOL, and can’t wait to hear more 🙂

  21. Chris on February 28th, 2007 8:32 am

    Delish! How lucky are you!

  22. Angelica on February 28th, 2007 8:34 am

    Love the pic! It’s about time 🙂

  23. LT on February 28th, 2007 8:46 am

    What a great picture! I’m so happy for you that you finally met John in person. How tall are you GMMR? I thought John is around 6’4″ but you don’t look that much shorter than him.

  24. Jim Mosby on February 28th, 2007 8:54 am


  25. kilwiggle7 on February 28th, 2007 9:00 am

    awesome gmmr! I’m so jealous of you. Glad it lived up to all your expectations and more!! 😀 so lucky… and great picture by the way.. you better have that blown up and framed! 🙂

  26. jenny on February 28th, 2007 9:01 am

    Wait…why did you take that picture by Jim’s new desk instead of his old desk? Eh, who cares? It’s awesome! Can’t wait to hear about the whole thing!

  27. HealthcareHottie on February 28th, 2007 9:02 am

    Congrats GMMR. I’m so happy you had a great time and finally got to meet JKras. That picture is awsome, can’t wait to see more.

  28. Mannie on February 28th, 2007 9:04 am

    I am so glad John was there. I know you really wanted him to be but didn’t think he would be. Too bad you didn’t take an extra suitcase to stuff him in for a souvenir. I guess the picture will have to be it. I agree that you better have it blown up and framed! =)

  29. Jo on February 28th, 2007 9:11 am

    that is a great picture! simply dawesome.

  30. Angie Smith on February 28th, 2007 9:22 am

    That’s awesome! Absolutely love the picture! I know you are just so excited about it and will be for a long time! Thanks for sharing and can’t wait to hear more! 🙂

  31. Kismet on February 28th, 2007 9:22 am

    You are my new hero.


  32. duckyxdale on February 28th, 2007 9:23 am

    You all have no idea. I got to hear select cast members on the phone (GMMR ain’t too star struck to call her Ducky from the set) and a certain someone else doing a certain something outside. AMAZING! Kath, this picture seriously took my breath away!!!

  33. Barry on February 28th, 2007 9:26 am

    Kath, congratulations. I’m quite jealous, but if any two people deserved it, it’s you and tanster.

  34. Annie on February 28th, 2007 9:27 am

    Oooooh baby! Who’s that hot couple?

  35. Sarah on February 28th, 2007 9:27 am

    Oh my god, that photo is all kinds of awesome! You should really blow that sucker up to gigantic poster size…hell, make leaflets and stickers with that photo and give them to passerbys!

  36. DerbyCity on February 28th, 2007 9:29 am

    Oh.My.God. Kathie! Are you two the cutest couple or what?! Please tell me how he smelled (I know, I’m weird!) 🙂

  37. DerbyCity on February 28th, 2007 9:31 am

    By the way, I take it this is what you will be sending out as your Christmas cards come December? 😉

  38. Amber on February 28th, 2007 9:34 am

    You adorable thing, I’m so jealous!

  39. temp on February 28th, 2007 9:37 am

    THAT IS SO AWESOME! I can’t wait to see the rest of the pics and hear all about it!

  40. Sam on February 28th, 2007 9:45 am

    That picture is way too cute! I can’t wait to hear/read more so I can live vicariously through you. LOL

  41. TheNextKristin on February 28th, 2007 9:48 am

    That is a picture of you and Jim Halpert.


    I think I need a minute to process this.

  42. Dustin on February 28th, 2007 9:50 am

    Congratulations! It is you dream come true (somewhat) 🙂

  43. Lisa on February 28th, 2007 10:10 am

    that has to be the greatest picture in the history of great pictures.

    how jealous is the world of you right at this minute!

  44. Lindsay on February 28th, 2007 10:12 am

    I hate you. I hate you. I hate you.

    Okay I’m just really jealous and cannot wait to live vicariously through you. Details girl! Haha. Congrats on the experience of a life time.

    Is he as gorgeous in person?

  45. April on February 28th, 2007 10:17 am

    That is an awesome picture!! Mr. JKras himself… *sigh* Congrats again! I’m sure it was everything you expected and then some! Can’t wait to read your blogs about it. And post a whack a pics, too! =D

  46. Emily on February 28th, 2007 10:19 am

    Aaaaaaahh!!! Kath, that is what they call a picture-perfect couple! I’m so excited for you and can’t wait to hear all the details. Ok, I need to breathe now…in, out, in out….

  47. kat on February 28th, 2007 10:19 am

    happy happy joy joy…

    I’m so happy for you 🙂

  48. Mia on February 28th, 2007 10:21 am

    Thats such a wonderful picture! Its always great when you meet someone and you dont blink! THOUGh had you, then you would have two! 😉 thats awesome that everyone was there! did you beat rashida up for possibly being with him or was she nice? (do you approve?) cant wait for pictures!!!

  49. GMMR on February 28th, 2007 10:28 am

    I will say that although JKras is still my #1 TV boyfriend, I may have to work a little harder at objectifying him less 🙂 Now that I’ve actually met him, it feels a little funny talking about his hotness…sorry, but it’s the truth. He was a really great guy though…just as you would expect him. He definitely reminded me of a guy I would be friends with.

    And for those of you who asked about Rashida? I hardly got to talk to her but she is gorgeous!!

  50. Kali on February 28th, 2007 11:01 am

    Yay!!! I’m so glad you had such a fun day! That picture is
    ah-MAH-zing! I really like it, since you both look incredible and it looks like Roy has not killed Jim Halpert (yet!).

  51. jen on February 28th, 2007 11:08 am

    Oh, wow!! You and Tanster are two of the luckiest chicks ever. cannot wait for the pics. who else did you meet besides JKras? and about that, i’m so jealous. A year ago, I started watching The Office because I love Steve Carell in everything he does. But I had no clue: A) how unbelieveably funny the show was going to be, B) how, and I’m not the only one, I have found a TV boyfriend in the form of Jim Halpert a.k.a John Krasinski, and C) it eventually led me to your website which is so informative to me because you basically watch the same shows I watch and so does Ducky from duckyxdale.com. and your guys’ podcast are so hilarious! I get such a kick out of them. oh, i’m rambling. I tend to do that. sorry. anyways, can’t wait for more details on your office visit. in the words of Napoleon Dynamite, “LUCKY!!!!” Dinkin Flicka, Kath!!

  52. Sarah Lynn on February 28th, 2007 11:24 am

    So awesome….I’m jealous and so happy for you at the same time. Can’t wait for more details. 🙂

  53. kari on February 28th, 2007 11:38 am

    So. No wig then? The picture is certainly wig-free. Did you find out about Cocktails?

  54. Dani on February 28th, 2007 11:53 am

    Squee!! You lucky girl! I’m glad to hear that everyone was as cool as I imagined they would be. I can’t wait for more pictures!

  55. Snow on February 28th, 2007 12:03 pm

    Yeah! I’m so happy for you and for me — vicariously through you! Can’t wait to read the rest about your day. And it is so cool that the folks at The Office let you guys do this! You and Tanster so deserve this because of all your hard work on your sites. I check them both out nearly every day and I really enjoy them! Thanks!

  56. Jenny on February 28th, 2007 12:03 pm

    I am SO FRIGGING JEALOUS!!! Can’t wait to hear ALL about it!! 🙂

  57. dada95835 on February 28th, 2007 12:06 pm

    What a nice engagement picture. Congratulations!

    Oh wait, that’s not what it is? Still, you’re one lucky chick to have gotten that pic! So happy for you! And congratulations!

  58. Jen74 on February 28th, 2007 12:16 pm

    Oh my gosh Kath, you lucky duck you. Can’t wait to hear more.

  59. Clare on February 28th, 2007 12:39 pm

    Sounds like you guys got the royal treatment. That’s fantastic, so glad you had a great day!! 🙂

  60. Kathleen on February 28th, 2007 12:39 pm

    I am completely comfortable saying 1.) you and John look adorable in the picture and 2). I am so jealous. Can’t wait for all the details. Congratulations!

  61. Mary on February 28th, 2007 1:06 pm

    Kath – First of all, you and John look soooooo good together. And I also have to tell you, I am totally jealous. And that you and I look alike, we could be sisters, but I would never go after your man, but we could share clothes!

  62. NeverEnoughJam on February 28th, 2007 1:19 pm

    Not only did he give you a hug and a picture, he made a Jim-face for you. What a sweet guy. Can’t wait to read all about your day.

  63. FNL on February 28th, 2007 2:12 pm

    Great pic…did you see your “bf” is #2 (with a bullet) on http://mancrush.com/mc/unit ?

  64. Lisa (aka lmr722) on February 28th, 2007 2:26 pm

    OMG! GMMR, fantastic picture, fantastic everything. Waiting for details!!!!

  65. Psappy on February 28th, 2007 2:46 pm

    Wow. just. wow. I’m so glad you finally got to meet JKras. and it didn’t pass my spoiler radar that Rashida was on set…interesting….In any event, you deserve it sweetie!

  66. Kristi on February 28th, 2007 3:05 pm

    oh my gosh!! A dream come true, ay? That pic is adorable, you look very happy! 🙂 Can’t wait to hear more!

  67. Jaime on February 28th, 2007 3:23 pm

    I am soooooooooooooo jealous. Words cannot describe how much I hate you right now!!

    Okay, I love you, because you can tell me how strong he felt when you hugged him. Lord, I’m getting hot flashes just thinking about it!

  68. Jim Mosby on February 28th, 2007 3:48 pm

    I still can’t get over it. 😀 Too freaking awesome

  69. Jim Mosby on February 28th, 2007 3:48 pm

    Ohh, and I cannot resist. Must be comment #69. *Giggle*

  70. Elena on February 28th, 2007 4:16 pm

    You’re killing me, update more please!!!

    Cute picture. Step 1 to making your TV boyfriend a reality. :-D.

  71. girl7 on February 28th, 2007 4:38 pm

    Yes, kath — yay for you! I swear, I actually squealed and clapped my hands when I saw the picture. And I, too, am DYING to hear all the details. (Did you get to ask him about Brief Interviews??)

  72. Jennifer on February 28th, 2007 4:40 pm

    so I’m already having a pretty swell day, then I logged into myspace and saw this picture there. I cyber-ran over to GMMR to hear more. Sad, that it made my day even better that *you* got to visit the set. I can’t wait to hear more ! hooray!!!

  73. Jen on February 28th, 2007 4:45 pm

    SO JEALOUS!!! I don’t want to see anymore pictures. the first already has me maddly angry! SO JEALOUS hehe

  74. GMMR on February 28th, 2007 4:51 pm

    Girl7 – I didn’t get to ask him about BI. We didn’t have a ton of time to chit chat with the cast. I mean, we saw them all day long but they were in and out, and we didn’t get much time to really talk to them. I actually brought BI with me to have John sign, but it seemed odd to ask them to sign stuff in the middle of the day,

  75. b on February 28th, 2007 4:58 pm

    oh drool, drool, drool. jk looks amazingly hot but also just like a nice guy (which scores major points in my book!). the only reason i’m not completely jealous is b/c you’ll give us all the gossip and photos of what it’s like to be with the cast and crew!!

  76. Hilary on February 28th, 2007 5:00 pm

    Do you know how much I hate you right now? No, all is good.

    Lucky for you… *wants a picture with JKras*

  77. amelia krasinski on February 28th, 2007 5:05 pm

    you are the luckiest girl in the world.
    i am beyond jealous
    lucky you!

  78. Kris on February 28th, 2007 5:21 pm

    Holy God. [/Pam]

    Congrats, GMMR! You are such a lucky girl, getting that close to Krasinski. Sigh. I am super excited for your full story w/ details and pics! I’m so glad you got to meet him, too (along w/ the rest of the cast, of course) 😀 Oh, and i’m not jealous at all ^^;;

  79. mg714 on February 28th, 2007 5:27 pm

    GMMR – that is the greatest picture! I am so happy for you (and a little jealous, of course 😉 ).

    I cannot wait to hear all the details and I’m so glad that you can share all the fun with the rest of us! If only I could be as lucky some day! 🙂

  80. coverstock on February 28th, 2007 5:50 pm

    jealousy, thy name is coverstock….

    GMMR, you are the luckiest blogger in the entire world.

    congrats! can’t wait to read the details.

  81. steph on February 28th, 2007 6:25 pm

    omg! seriously…seriously?!!!
    so happy for you kath – can’t wait to hear all the details 😉
    miss you!
    xx s

  82. Lauren on February 28th, 2007 6:33 pm

    omg! i’m so jealous that you got to be that close to JKras! Good to hear that he’s as cool in person as he seems. That’s so awesome that you got to meet everybody! Can’t wait to hear the details

  83. CrazyGringa on February 28th, 2007 8:10 pm

    I hate you!! Of course, I say that with all the love and jealousy in the world! That picture is sooooo cute! You are one strong woman, because I know if I was there I would have jumped John right there in front of everyone! Yup, I have no restraint.

  84. Emily on February 28th, 2007 8:23 pm

    I see the blue shirt is back! Yeah baby!

  85. Kiki on February 28th, 2007 8:40 pm

    This is my first post on your site but I have to tell you, you are one lucky girl:-) And I totally figured out why you didnt get to talk to Rashida…jealousy! She was so jealous of the lovey vibes that John was sending your way, she couldnt talk to you:-) Seriously, now that you’ve been around them, do you think they are going out?:-) Congrats!

  86. Kiki on February 28th, 2007 8:43 pm

    BTW..he does smell good doesn’t he? I bet he smells like soap…no nasty cologne:-)

  87. CrazyGringa on February 28th, 2007 8:55 pm

    Or maybe like Tide ;o)

  88. Janette on February 28th, 2007 9:10 pm

    oh man is that one hot picture!!! Congrats! fangirl dreams DO come true:) Your so lucky you got to see a show being filmed. I am having office withdrawls and it hasn’t even been one week since cocktails. 5 more weeks to go

  89. Marie on February 28th, 2007 9:19 pm

    I’ll add my note to the chorus: What an excellent picture!!! You both look great, neither of you blinked or show any other sign that says, “Oops, I wasn’t quite ready” – it’s very cool! YOU WIN! There’s no question that you and Tanster are the two people most deserving of this rewarding experience, with all of the hard work you’ve both put in, and your endless dedication. YAAAAAAAYYYY!!!!! Hope we see a few more pictures (here and/or at Office Tally), and get to hear more details soon! 😀

  90. Mary Ann on February 28th, 2007 9:23 pm

    Woohooo!!!!! So friggin’ awesome. YOU deserve it. Thank you the “latest and greatest” info on The Office. I love your site. 🙂

  91. Denise (ddker) on February 28th, 2007 9:39 pm

    So you finally met your man. So now you can die a happy woman. (Not that we want you to die anytime soon-we need you!)

  92. rar728 on February 28th, 2007 9:43 pm

    Ack! So jealous!

    But that’s awesome for you, and I can’t wait to hear/see more about it!

  93. MrsData on February 28th, 2007 10:49 pm

    GMMR, you are beyond lucky! This photo of you two looks so adorable!

    Question, I know that Joe Scarborough was on the set today too, did you see him there?

  94. Brad on March 1st, 2007 1:20 am

    Wow, way to go, Kathie. Did you wash your hand after shaking his? ha ha Hope to meet you at Paley Fest!

  95. Lauren (GeekCheek) on March 1st, 2007 7:25 am

    Yay, Kath!

    Now that Thursday night phone call is just a memory of a forgotten time, I guess you don’t “owe me” anything anymore.

    I knew that you’d meet him face to face one day

  96. Jennifer in FL on March 1st, 2007 8:25 am

    “You lucky woman” states Jennifer while bubbling over with jealousy. Seriously, you deserve to have JKras hang all over you!!!! Just kidding. Can’t wait to see the rest of the photos.

    I love GMMR and look forward to your recaps and clever remarks about THE OFFICE every week. You are awesome! Keep up the great job.

  97. lianhanshee on March 1st, 2007 11:20 am

    Eeeeee! Kath! I’m soooo happy for you! What a really great picture of both of you. I can’t wait to hear more about your day!

  98. Rayne on March 1st, 2007 4:28 pm

    You guys are so cute!

  99. Just Jaed on March 2nd, 2007 12:22 am

    WOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!! I made it before comment 100. Hahaha.

    CONGRATS ON YOUR SET VISIT!!!!!!!!!!!! SO LUCKY!!!!!!!!!!

  100. Jill on March 3rd, 2007 8:58 am

    OK…let me be the 100th person to say congratulations! You SOOO deserve it.

    Also, let me be the 100th person to say that I wish that was *me* standing there with JKras. You lucky lucky lucky lucky lucky girl.

    […] Head on over to GMMR to read all about it. Right now there is only a teaser up but the big recap of the Office visit with GMMR and OfficeTally will be up soon. […]
