Why do you torture me thus, NBC???

It was traumatic enough for me to watch the season finale of The Office when it originally aired. But tonight they had to go and air it again. When Pam rejects Tim I squealed with pain. Both times. When Pam kissed Jim I squealed with delight. Both times. I can't take this king of rollercoaster emotional stuff. It is too hard on me.

The pain is augmented by the inner torment I feel when I have to face a choice between the beauty of unrequited love and the pleasure of true love realized. Both have their attractions. The part of me that loves Chaz Bukowski crazes the unrequited love. That sharp lingering pain that makes life more vivid. The pain that lets you know you're alive. The part of me that loves Pride and Prejudice desperately wants things to work out in a way that suggests there is order in the universe. That the good guys win in the end. That no matter how shitty things get, it will be worth it in the end.

At first I couldn't remember which one was Tim and which one was Jim. So, I went to the website and figured it out and also found out this little tidbit of info about the actress who plays Pam.

"Fischer was raised in St. Louis, Missouri where, at the age of 5, she took her first acting class with Sean Gunn (Kirk on the “Gilmore Girls”). Gunn and Fischer stayed in touch over the years and in October 2000, she married his brother – writer-director James Gunn."

Just a little extra info for all you Gilmore Girls fans out there. I love it when tv worlds colide.
