John Krasinski & Emily Blunt Engaged!!

August 29, 2009 by  

Congratulations to THE OFFICE’s John Krasinski who recently became engaged to actress Emily Blunt.

And that’s that. Next story.

What?  Did you think I would have a reaction? Did you think I would be upset? Come on, what did you expect me to to do? Did you expect me to have a complete mental breakdown while driving down 95 South which resulted in me screaming at the top of my lungs and pounding on the steering wheel in protest?  Because really, if you were expecting that kind of reaction you really don’t know me to well.  Come on, people. Give me a little credit.  Something like that would never happen.  Ever. And if a certain fellow TV blogger and podcast partner who was with me all day in the car yesterday tries to tell you differently, well, he’s a liar.

I handled the news with dignity and grace. It’s not like I thought I was going to be marrying John Krasinski.  I mean that’s just crazy talk.  Nope, never once considered it.  Never daydreamed about it despite the way he looked deep into my eyes on the occasions we’ve been together.  Nope, never even thought about it.

In the words of a certain Regional Manager of a mid-size Pennsylvania paper company, “engaged ain’t married”.  And until the time the two of them walk down the aisle (excuse me I need just a minute…ok, I’m better now), John Krasinski still has his place at the top of my TV boyfriend list. After he’s married…well, we’ll just have to wait and see.

Congratulations to John and Emily.  I’ve never had the pleasure of meeting her but she seems just lovely. We all know what a fantastic guy John Krasinski is – just the nicest. Here’s to hoping they have a long and healthy life together.  Congrats!

(Oh and if by some off chance they end up getting married in John’s hometown of Newton, well they might want to ask the priest to leave out the “if anyone here objects part”. What? I can’t be responsible for my actions).

A first look at the ring…

    Haha, did you do that manip yourself? hahahaha, nice. I am sure she is perfectly nice (although she may not share the love for Dunkin Donuts you and JK have…you’ll always have that)

    Ah Kath I commiserate. The world will be losing a great bachelor. I loved your and Dan’s play-by-play tweets of the moment when you found out. You guys are hilarious!

    Ah, Krasinksi. You didn’t have to go and get engaged just because I got knocked up by my husband. It’s ok, John. It’s ok.

    While I’m still completely heartbroken, I feel that, in a month or so, I’ll be able to congratulate the two. Until then, I can cry into my pillow – and that’s exactly what I did last night (TWSS?). It’s a sad, sad day to be a female fan of The Office.

    Hey GMMR, don’t feel too bad, I’m married and I was really sad about it! My huband knows that JKras was one of my backup husbands 🙂 I guess I’ll have to find a new one…I’m thinking Alexander Skarsgård may be the new backup…I’m prepared to share him with you! 🙂

  9. Hilary on August 30th, 2009 5:48 pm

    My life is over. Now I actually have to go about finding a real life boyfriend. Thanks for the laughs as always Kath. 🙂

    This is me calm. It was worse when I found out.

    You people are hilarious!!

    I think it’s a testament to JKras that his admirers are begrudgingly offering their congratulations rather than acting the way a Twilight fan might act if Robert Pattinson got hitched (i.e. ripping the poor girl to shreds and making a top ten list of Why They’re Wrong for Each Other – #1 She doesn’t sparkle in daylight).

    Instead, we are respectful and sane. We may be sad..and hella jealous, but dammit, we’re polite. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to stick my fingers in my ears while humming loudly and just pretend this engagement business never happened. Lalalalalalalalalalalalalalala…………….

    I’m trying to show dignity and class in this situation, but it’s hard. At least when he says her name I can still daydream he really means me. sniff sniff.
