Um... listen at own risk. If your eardrums are split by slightly high pitched fangirlish giggles then please don't complain to me. I'm sorry. I apologise in advance. OH my gosh. My hands are shaking so much. Can barely type. Eeek. Jim. Pam. Enough said. Am too hyped up to ever sleep again.

ETA: There are no spoilers in the post.

THAT'S RIGHT! I TOOK A STAND! AND THE RESULTS WERE GOOD! Exactly - it's Jim's phone because he's her best friend and she loves him and then they kiss and then she says she's wanted to do that for a long time as well and then they almost kiss again and then she's silly and then ALL OUR HEARTS WERE BROKEN, JIM'S AND PAM'S MOST IRREPERABLY THOUGH I'M SURE THEY'LL BE PUT BACK TOGETHER WITH SOME HARDWORK AND LOTS OF LOVE!

Okay. Faith in the writers. I've tried that before and sometimes it doesn't end well. But you listen to the commentaries and they're all clearly Jim/Pam 'shippers, so maybe the faith is in the right place. What was I saying last night? Something about how I'm disgusted by the Jim/Karen stuff? It's because it's Jim being the same as he always was, and he SHOULDN'T BE! He should be a different, less fun Jim now that he's no longer with Pam. I feel the dynamic is slightly forced, you know? Like they're very deliberately introducing this new love interest when everyone is still COMPLETELY HUNG UP on Jim and Pam. Hmm, perhaps it'll get better. BUT THEY NEED TO SEE EACH OTHER! That conversation was the best thing since... I don't know when, but MORE NEEDS TO HAPPEN! Oh yay - a gold star for fangirling! THat's the best award around, isn't it? I'm so very proud. YOU SHOULD BE PROUD TOO!

Well, I can't really save icons or upload them because everytime I try, ym computer goes absolutely spazzy. Some guy came in to replace the motherboard (whatever that is) the other day, but it's still not fixed. I might seriously have to get a new computer (it's under warranty, so that's all right). IT'S SO IRRITATING!

Heee. Being authoritative reaps rewards! And hee - yes to all of that! Seriously, Jim so happy when he says he wanted to do that for so long?? The lean in. The hand holding! And the angst! And gah, in CN, as Jim walks away, JF does the best distraught look as she looks down at her engagement ring. Love! And ooh, you have to listen to CN commentary to hear how JF is talking about her reactions during that scene to JK's performance. Love!

Yeah, I think the Office writers know that J/P is the heart of the show, and won't mess too badly with it. Steve Carrell wrote CN - which I love. I think the dynamic is deliberatly forced, to show that Jim may be trying to move on, but it could never be the same with Karen. I still think it could go the more one sided route, because Karen so far seems more interested, and Jim is more just being his friendly, funny self. The phone conversation is so good - it sets things up so much for a face to face meet. Eeeee! WE ARE BOTH PROUD!

You seem to have found a way around the icon problem though - yay! And heh, I don't know what a motherboard is either, but can't believe you let a perfectly good TWW reference slide - motherboard so far up your ass....

The hand holding really gets me because he squeezes in a way that's like, "I love you. Why are you doing this? It's only going to hurt both of us." but it's so tender and yet... she's breaking his heart when she does it! THAT DAMN ENGAGEMENT RING. I've read a bit of fanfic that seems to think it was only in that conversation that she realised she loved him, but that's clearly not true. Her reaction isn't, "OH MY GOD, WHAT????" it's "what are you doing?" as in, "hey, I know you feel this way, and I do too, but we've had this unspoken agreement to just NOT TALK ABOUT IT, so what the hell are you doing?" Maybe it's just my opinion, but she totally already knew she loved him. Awww, yeah, I watched the commentary last week and it's true! His performance was SO FANTASTIC! So was hers, of course. THEY'RE ALWAYS WONDERFUL!

Yep, good point. They have to be aware that millions of fans are living and dying with the dramas of Jim and Pam. Weren't they saying on the commentary that Steve was really pushing for the kiss and the "I'm in love with you"? I reckon he's a 'shipper too, or at least knows what good storytelling is. Yeah, Karen is definitely more intersted in Jim, and she probably doesn't know that he's currently heart-broken and in love with his best friend. Maybe he'll give in to her a little bit, but he'll always come back to Pam. RIGHT???

Not a good way. I just go on Cress' computer to deal with them, but she's on it a lot so I can't do it that often. Eeek, what was I thinking? My mind has been away from TWW for too long, I think! (But my heart is never far from it...)
julester1: John and Jenna - so cute!julester1 on October 31st, 2006 03:31 am (UTC)
Yeah, gah. He really can't believe that she's still saying no - but feels like he has done everything that he could possibly do. Poor Jim!! And YES! I absolutely agree with your interpretation too - 'what are you doing?' and that look that Jim gives her, which says, you absolutely know what I'm doing - don't pretend that you don't. It's always been Pam trying so hard to convince herself that there isn't anything there, and Jim, to at least keep the friendship going, has played a long with it. Gah. I love that Jim goes straight from just, can I talk to you about something, and then can't hold it in - I'm in love with you. And needed for you to hear it ...once. Eeek! Hee, I loev Jenna talking about how as they were doing the conversation, all she could think about was how amazing John was being. Heh.

Ha. Yes, Steve is totally pulling for J/P - and how they didn't follow the usual thing of having the declaration as the cliffhanger. RIGHT!

Because he basically DID do all he could do without getting agressive, which I'm not sure would have been a really sound move in that situation anyway, so maybe it was a good choice. Eh, he knows Pam better than anyone, right? Oh my God... that look... it kills me so much. And the, "come on, I don't want to do that." A;DFKA;LSDKJF;LKJ! WHy does he want to break all of our hearts like that? Imagine how much he must have psyched himself up for that conversation! And yeah... just going into it would have been the easiest way, probably. ARGH, THIS IS MAKING ME SO SAD BUT IN A GOOD WAY!

The whole episode was just the best one ever. Does everyone just love it to death? Ugh, I saw taht there's a Jim/Karen community. THat makes me rather ill. Each to their own, I guess... BUT STILL, WHERE'S THEIR LOYALTY?

Hee! Just the whole speech by Jim is just so heartbreakingly perfect. Love!!! I WANT TO BE MORE THAN THAT!! Putting it all out there - gah. And I think it was definitely the poker game that convinced hin - they were just so happy and Pam was being so cute and gorgeous - he decided he had to take his chance before deciding to do the transfer. Also?? That mind control and wink and smile? Love!! Pam being so giddy because Jim seemed to okay with the wedding stuff, and them Jim saying he had no future at Scranton?? GAH.

Yes, I think Casino Night is really well loved. Ha. A lot of people seem happy to see Jim/Karen in the short term, although most seem to acknowledge the futility in the long term. We can wait!

Jim is perfect. HE IS! I've been blinded by reading fanfic, I think (awww, that one you recommended was really good! That's how it should be. Jim and Pam together are better! Well, that' sjust obvious. Why do I bother saying these thigns? Who are they benefitting?) but, seriously, he's a great guy. And he uses fabric softener! I don't do that. (But my mum might. Who knows?) THE WINK! God, could she have been flirting more openly and just been showing her love more blatantly than that? The looks and the smiles Jim and Pam are always sharing well... they say everything, don't they? Here I am, being Captain Obvious again! Um, yes, the juxtaposition with her happiness and his "I have no future" was quite extremely upsetting. But realistic.

Happy to see Jim/Karen? No, that's wrong! Not that I have Jim/Pam blinkers on, or anything. Yes, patience! I have this vague memory about waiting for a while for this really pretty blonde lady and a guy with... dimples? Something boyish. I just seem to remember that they had a thing going but it was a while before anythign came of it. Come to think of it, did that end up working out? Who knows.
