Scattershot

Deep in the middle of The Office season 3 now - Traveling Salesman/The Return/Ben Franklin - and I still cannot stop my stomach from twisting into knots of bitterness with every glimpse of Karen speaking to Jim*, and/or when Pam horribly embarrasses herself several times over (* I understand why that relationship existed.  I can even argue that it was helpful, in the long run.  Does not change my reaction, or the fact that I hate her character independent of said relationship).  I'm thinking Mom might have to watch "Phyllis' Wedding" by herself because the overwhelmingly prevailing memory of that one is how badly I want to stab Karen with something when she bounces around singing at the microphone.  There are funny things about this season; there are; I keep finding great moments that make me wonder why I so avoid it...and then one minute of the awful triangle will just overshadow and ruin everything.  

On the bright side, it's finally making me start to perk up and look forward to the next new episode.  8 days away; should be just enough time to clear out the last vestiges of bitterness from the "Christmas" episode.  Bitterness I am replacing with the fact that Pushing Daisies' last three episodes are getting kicked all around the schedule in the manner of "Standoff," and 10 to 1 says we don't see them until June.
