NEO-MAXI ZOOM DWEEBIE ... TONIGHT
Nurse G and C.O. have only the basic television cable; they get numbers 2 - 13 on the dial. They must find their entertainment within the paltry parameters of network viewing -- okay, and the WB, too -- while I, in my smugness, revel in the SOPRANOS and RESCUE ME and 24-hour marathons of 24. So imagine my surprise when they introduced me to a quiet little gem on NBC called The Office! Nurse G used to work at Corning Inc., in their research labs, and can totally identify with this program.
We all especially like the office dork, Dwight, played by the very funny, and incredibly brave, Rainn Wilson. In real life, Wilson is married to the author Holiday Reinhorn, who's written some great short stories like this one:

In a perfect world, i.e., one in which I didn’t work at the Bouquet Canyon Bank of Modesto for Jose Martinson, I would turn to this man I didn’t work for, and when he said something like, “You hang on to your monitor right now,” I would say something like:
This story is included in Reinhorn's short story collection Big Cats.
Finally, a Thursday night program I can look forward to!
