The drunken red-headed Meredith here from the corner desk of Dunder-Mifflin with my Season 3 wrap-up. I've had great fun writing the weak, I mean weekly
blog. I am so shocked and pleased that people actually read this and comment. In my comments I've heard from: old friends, high school and college friends, friends I haven't spoken to in years and years, new friends, as well as people I've met in the grocery store or fans who saw me in Philadelphia on a train, or in Kentucky at a restaurant. Not to mention MySpace crossover fans and new
Thank god people get to give me their two-cents here or I would have gotten way off track - very sarcastic, angry, mean-spirited, you know? Like when I used to write my "morning pages." Did anyone else do
The Artist's Way
? How about the
Official Bartender's Guide Book

I had such a blast this season - on set and off. Winning an Emmy award for Best Comedy and a SAG award for Best Comedy Ensemble - both such incredible experiences. Off the charts. Not to mention the people I've met - the actors and the fans in NYC, Philadelphia, Chicago, Louisville, Vegas, Vancouver and L.A.

How about that finale? Can you believe it? Lots of questions answered in the finale. Didn't I tell you? I think I told you. It's so bright this morning I can't see straight. I told you. Full one-hour episode. Like a movie. I got a nice moment with Jim and his sexy haircut. Was I drunk or did Jim actually ask Pam for dinner? "Dinner." I think that's code. "Din-din." Is that code? Or just dumb? The point is that the elephant in the room has not only been addressed but asked to dinner. Makes Season 4 seem filled with possibilities - like an empty glass in front of a full bar.
So Dunder-Mifflin fans and friends, what a great season of support and laughter we've all had. Are you with me? Keep in touch. Write me at my
