Sometimes, when saving the world doesn’t seem to be working out, and it’s continuing on its accelerating slide, right past my Lifehavens, and on into oblivion, I pause and come back to my senses. Then I go to the aid of the truly needy — the TV oddballs. This week Earl Hickey recovered from his coma so that is coming along nicely. Bree Van De Kamp and Katherine Mayfair after nearly killing each other over who arranges the flowers, and who serves the desserts find that their underlying problem is that they are so very similar. Now they are becoming best friends. It’s a kind of a mutual self adulation arrangement. But, where the real angst is this week is with the social problems of Michael Scott the boss over at Dunder Mifflin. It seems his girlfriend dumped him a couple of weeks ago, and now he is lonely, and horny. He is pressuring everyone in the office into setting him up with a date, but the only date so far, a blind date, turned out be with a woman he considers too plain. I suspect that she, like your local librarian, will turn out to be stunning when she gets all beautified. Anyhow, I have kept my eye out for a girlfriend for Michael, and although she may be a bit plain there seems to be some intriguing quality about her that catches my eye, and just might catch Michael’s. This is what I see in my mind’s eye coming about in the not too distant future.
What do you think? I think they make a great couple, you know, the “Birds of a feather flock together”, sort of thing. Michael and Mona — what a team — we could even make it into an nice little candy treat — M&M. Mmmmm so sweet.
Thanks to Wired Magazine issue 16.05 for the portrait of Michael and thanks to Leonardo from Vinci, Italy for the fine portrait of Mona. He somehow managed to anticipate Michael’s expression, and general appearance quite nicely.
