All weekend long, theTVaddict.com’s very own Amrie Cunningham will be reporting live from THE OFFICE Convention in Scranton.
Yesterday was a big blur. Lots of busy stop and go type things to handle. I got all the credentials I need to get in everywhere important. Big cocktail reception last night. Creed Bratton joined the band up on stage and played a great blues number. Then we headed over to the Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs casino. Got to see and meet lots of cast members. Ed Helms, who you know is my personal favorite, was incredibly awesome in person. It was nice to be able to say “Hey, I’m Amrie, we chatted over the summer” and have him mention parts of the article I posted to show that he remembers me and he read what we posted up on here! Brian Baumgartner (Kevin) ended up dealing cards at a table for hours – the people loved him! Craig Robinson (Darryl, my other favorite) was just a doll. He was in the absolute coolest velvet/velour/suede combination jacket. It was his birthday on Thursday so he was in a celebratory mood. He actually performed with the band for a long time at Casino Night. Got a picture taken with him… on someone else’s camera, but I promise folks, it’s an awesome picture, and it will be coming soon! Got to see Creed, Oscar, Phyllis, Kate Flannery (Meredith, who is a fox in person!), and Angela all running around, doing some casino night stuff.
Today’s plans are packed – street festival, press lunch with local Scranton foods, Uncommon Stock Holder’s Meeting at the Steamtown Mall, Press Conference, Cast Q&A, and another cocktail reception. I’m not sure where we’ll head after that – Farley’s? Molly Brannigan’s? Poor Richard’s Pub? The opportunities are endless!
Keep track of me on Twitter – I’ll be updating all day!
