Team Pam, what an awesome name!! I too am Team Pam, although I can't bring myself to actually dislike Karen...  (the Office)

I dislike everyone of them that doesn't have a british accent.

The series was done once, it was perfect, perhaps the most perfect TV show ever.  The series is perfectly complete, total running time is approximately 14 hours.  It didn't need to be redone.

I am more fond of the American version, but that's the one I saw first. I think people tend to prefer the one they saw first. Both are brilliant.

PugAttack -- I like Karen, too.  I even like Roy lately.  But I still love Jim and Pam together.

And not to totally hijack the thread, but there's a really interesting article in Slate comparing the British, American, French, and German versions of the show.  Personally, I was very skeptical when I heard about the US remake, and didn't like the pilot, but now it's my favorite show.  It's really grown into its own distinct personality.

Here's the article: http://www.slate.com/id/2150015/?GT1=8592

I didn't even look at the postmark because I was too jumpy, but my staus checker changed Monday and I got the envelope yesterday.  I'm guessing they had to have mailed it out sooner and just waited to update the checker.

I think there's a problem with the USPS in general.  In LA it's so bad that it's become a staple of local news, and my congressional rep has even had meetings with the Postmaster General.  Every single time I see the mail being delivered, it's a new person doing it.  Last week was extra special, when there were two guys doing it together, and we still didn't get our mail until after 7:00 pm.

I guess it's a big city problem then? I don't live in a giant sprawling metropolis (although the metro area here isn't too small), and the mail system seems pretty reliable. I thought they had all sorts of ridiculous requirements and tests to work at USPS, and that it was one of the more desirable jobs for working class people. What's with the low quality of postal workers then?

I think maybe that's UPS that's so great to work for?  There's such huge turnover with our mail carriers that I have to think something must be amiss.

Also, hi Stan!  You were nice to me back when I was going by another name, and I've always appreciated it.  :)

On a somewhat related note, is there a problem with USPS and New York City? I've noticed that mail both going in and out of NYC (that I am sending or receiving) consistently takes longer than pretty much anywhere else in the United States excluding Alaska and Hawaii. Are all NYC mail carriers like Newman?
