    OK I am actually commenting because I saw your comment on heather-anne.com… and anyone who would list Pam from the office kicks ass in my book because

    a) you actually watch the office
    b) you get why she is so cool

    crap – but your comments are only letting me use my crappy blogger account! 🙂 AdJunky

    I love Jenna Fisher.

    I have watched her in Lollilove, the movie she directed, and in Slither, the movie her husband directed.

    She is awesome.

    Sorry about the comments. I may switch to Haloscan soon.
