I was very late to The Office party and only started really watching it last year. I had to start watching it to prepare to launch the Dunder Mifflin paper for Quill.com. I needed to be able to reference story lines, pranks, and characters when we were on the road with our paper trucks.
And even though I came to the party in the second to last season, I fell for this motley crew of paperistas and can’t wait to watch the finale tonight.
"Learn to seize opportunities. Dunder Mifflin was only a fictional paper company when the show began in 2005. Today, there’s an actual brand of Dunder Mifflin paper you can buy, thanks to Quill.com.

Sometimes our breasts are so big that we actually can’t move; we have no choice but to sit very still in one place and come up with joke after joke. Sometimes—though rare—our hips are so wide, that we physically cannot fit through the exit door of the comedy club that our office co-workers dragged us to after happy hour. So the only option available to us is to stay inside the comedy club, absorbing comedy act after comedy act, and in so doing, completing the full transformation from comedy student to comedy master."

"I initially looked into Tila as a potential “Where are they now?” story, but she doesn’t have the kind of nod-inducing, semi-appropriate, quasi-obsolescence we enjoy seeing from our faded stars; she got famous enough to suffer the kind of negative press and scrutiny that drives starlets to the edge, but not famous enough that people still care. And while the first reaction we should have to that is how sad that is, the other is that what the Internet makes, it can also break and sweep under the rug."
