gohugyourself: Dunder Mifflin Infinity?

gohugyourself: Dunder Mifflin Infinity?: "Dunder Mifflin Infinity? Ok, so can we talk for a second about tonight's episode of 'The Office'? Tonight's episode was, IMO, WEAK SAUCE. Like, it kinda irritated me, I found it so generally unfunny. I thought the only REALLY REALLY hilarious part was when Kelly told Ryan she was pregnant, and the camera zoomed in a bit to appropriately capture Ryan's shock, and then they did the cut away to Kelly shaking her head. I made Josh rewind the Tivo so I could crack up a second time. Other than that? Pppbbbtttthhhh."

TV Recap: The Office - Dunder Mifflin Infinity

TV Recap: The Office - Dunder Mifflin Infinity

TV Recap: The Office - Dunder Mifflin Infinity We always knew Ryan was kind of a douche but he really outdid himself on tonight's episode of The Office, titled "Dunder-Mifflin Infinity." To say that Ryan's recent promotion has gone to his head (literally) would be a major understatement. Fortunately for us, his huge ego boost has added a whole new level of hilarity to the series and I'm really hoping to see more of Ryan-Infinity in the episodes to come.

"That is what Ryan is like: A fake brother who steals your jeans." In an effort to upgrade the Scranton branch to the new "Dunder-Mifflin Infinity" plan, Ryan, equipped with a full vocabulary of corporate lingo, a story about meeting Vince Vaughn, a beard and a $200 haircut sauntered into the office ready to turn the place upside down. Poor Ryan probably expected everyone to take him and his man-stubble seriously but this was not to be the case. On arrival he was greeted by an onslaught of noogies, some teasing about his new look and even a reference to the office-fire-incident brought on by an over-cooked cheesy pita (see: "The Fire," Season 2).

Kelly, who dressed up like she was attending a cotillion, ignored Ryan's attempts to ignore her, told him she was dating a lot ("black guys, mostly") and confessed that she was carrying his baby. A minor fib that he eventually found out about but not until after she got him to take her out to dinner. Ryan then tried to get her outsourced to India but failed. Michael seemed just as emotionally affected by Ryan's presence as Kelly was when he compared Ryan to the exchange-student his parents took in who, when he returned to his home country, took all of Michael's jeans with him forcing Michael to have to wear shorts all winter.

Marion Jones expected to admit to drug use

(10-04) 21:25 PDT -- Marion Jones, the one-time Olympic superstar who for years has vehemently denied her use of performance-enhancing drugs, reportedly will plead guilty today to lying to federal agents about her drug use.

Jones won five medals at the 2000 Sydney Olympics, became a famed magazine cover girl and was dubbed the "world's fastest woman" even as she repeatedly deflected questions about her many connections to the world of performance-enhancing drugs.

More here:

Marion Jones admitted using steroids before the 2000 Olympics in a recent letter to close family and friends, The Washington Post reported Thursday.
Jones, a triple gold medalist in Sydney, said she took "the clear" for two years, beginning in 1999, and that she got it from former coach Trevor Graham, the newspaper reported. Graham told her it was flaxseed oil.

"The clear" is a performance-enhancing drug linked to BALCO, the lab at the center of a federal steroids investigation. Until now, Jones had steadfastly denied she ever took any kind of performance-enhancing drugs.
Jones also said she will plead guilty Friday in New York to two counts of lying to federal agents about her drug use and an unrelated financial matter, the Post reported.
"I want to apologize for all of this," the newspaper reported, quoting a person who received a copy of Jones' letter and read it to the paper. "I am sorry for disappointing you all in so many ways."
