I haven’t written about The Office in a while, but I figured since a lot of people watch it and since I got a decent response to my last post, I would write about it again today.
Good ol’ Andy Bernard has been missing for the last two episodes and this week, we found out why – he’s been travelling around enjoying the nonrefundable honeymoons he booked for himself and Angela.

In fact, he’s been gone so long that I’m unsure whether or not he is supposed to know that Angela sold his engagement ring and used the money to buy a showcat.
Now I know it’s weird to apply real life logic to a TV show, but when she announced she did that two episodes ago, it kind of made me that much more annoyed with her. First she cheated on him and then she pawned the ring for a cat? I know there are different schools of logic to this, but it seems to me that, even though the ring is technically a gift, it is also a very expensive thing and considering that Angela was the one whose dishonesty and cheating broke up the relationship in the first place, she should have given it back.
But onto yesterday’s episode. Although it was pretty low-key by Office standards, I enjoyed it. The whole Valentine’s Day plot with Michael and the Blood Drive girl was sweet with his officemates rallying behind him (in spite of Michael’s ridiculousness, I do hope he recovers from Holly), but the thing that totally surprised me about it was how much I was rooting for Kevin and the catalogue lady.
Why Kevin Malone, you sauve ladies man!
Yeah, he’s a bit strange, but the way he talked about the drive-in and how his hands got sweaty talking to a pretty girl was kind of charming and I’m happy she ended up giving him her number. You see, guys? Honesty works!
Anyway, that’s my take – what’s yours? Did you think Angela was in the wrong for selling the ring? Are you hoping Michael will end up seeing the Blood Drive girl again or are you rooting for Holly to return? What did you think about Kevin’s pickup attempt?
