S7, E1: Nepotism

I have used this title for today’s blog because in this episode of The Office, Michael makes his nephew the intern at the office. When introducing himself, the nephew lists his favorite movies, one of them being Citizen Kane. So I figured it was fitting for this blog. Overall, I thought the story was pretty […]

S4, E3&4: Dunder Mifflin Infinity

I chose today’s title because that episode dealt with the company completely being redesigned and bringing a lot of new technology, including a website. This influx of technology is similar to iMom but in fact does not cook a baby at the end of the episode. I didn’t mind the story. I enjoy satire, specifically […]

S1, E2: Diversity Day

Today’s title was used for pretty obvious reasons. One, this episode contains a lot of satire and two, you used it for one of the examples of satire. For my example of satire, I used a video of comedian Norm MacDonald at the 1997 White House Correspondents Dinner. Every year they have a comedian come […]

S2, E13: The Secret

The book I read for this quarter’s Independent Reading was “Murder on the Orient Express” by Agatha Christie. Christie was born September 15, 1890 in Torquay, United Kingdom. She is also known for famous works like “And Then There Were None” and “Sparkling Cyanide” as well as her popular characters, like Hercule Poirot. Christie is […]

S7, E17: Threat Level Midnight

I chose this for today’s title because in this episode of The Office, the entire staff sits down to watch a thrilling movie, similar to what we did in class. My initial thoughts about Vertigo are that it was a pretty boring movie. I watched it at home because I was absent when it was […]

S2, E15: Boys and Girls

I chose today’s title because the section of the poem that my group was assigned deals a lot with the equality of the genders. The idea that if we are to better society, men and women need to be seen as equal. This was controversial in a time where women were barely considered people. My […]

S5, E3: Business Ethics

I do agree that less government is better, but not no government because that is anarchy and would cause chaos. The government really only needs to be involved police, fire rescue, and other first respondents as well as basic infrastructure. The government does need to be involved with businesses and healthcare. This would just be […]

S4, E11: Survivor Man

I chose today’s title because this excerpt deals a lot with the ideas of being alone in the woods with just yourself and nature. In  this episode of The Office, Michael is jealous of a corporate camping retreat that he wasn’t invited to attend and decides to prove his survival skills by being left alone in […]

S3, E19: The Negotiation

My concept of argument has changed a little over the unit. I definitely learned a lot. I have never liked arguing because the majority of the time I feel it is useless and a waste of time. Most of these topics people are already set and opinionated on. Nothing, not even facts is going to […]

S5, E12: The Duel

I’ve titled today’s blog fittingly with the upcoming debate. Friends will be dueling friends and will not be friends for that day. I got the topic Net Neutrality. I have to argue for Net Neutrality. This is not my position on the topic. I am not that frustrated because it is not a very big […]
