A Receptionist named Pam

Jenna Fischer plays Pam, Dunder-Mifflin's receptionist on television's best comedy, The Office, and I think we're all aware of the collective lust that exists out there for Jenna.

Jenna/Pam is the Girl Next Door, and isn't the girl next door always the most appealing? In Hollywood, of course, the girl next door is the girl the boy marries, like Donna Pinciotti on That 70's Show...The girl next door is THE ONE. Pam is the one for Jim on The Office, right?
I thought Tammy T. was The One, once upon a time...You had to be there.

There's a wholesomeness to the girl next door, making her a girl you can take home to mother, but then, since she's right next door, the girl next door and yr moms have known each other a long, long time. Hell, yr mom probably babysat the girl next door a few times.

(I know, I know, "the girl next door" ain't a literal thing.)

Of course, there's the twist built into the Girl Next Door motif, a twist best represented by that old saying, "It's the quiet ones ya gotta look out for." Put simply, at those times when those of us lust for Jenna/Pam, it is with the idea that beneath those high-buttoned blouses and heavy sweaters, there is a wild woman, and when she shakes the ribbon from her hair, well, things might just get a little bit freaky...

If The Office had been The Library, Pam would still be Pam, ya know?

If Jenna Fischer had played Lisa on News Radio, she'd still be Pam.


Anyways, this is as good a time as any to share my own particular lust for television anchorwomen.

Liz Talbot, where are you?????

Hotcha! Hank
