Ryan From The Office Keeps a Blog

  • 4/13/10 at 12:58 PM

I find a lot of online "extras" annoying, but this one cracked me up: Thousand and One Words, the blog of Ryan from The Office, the show's temp turned cokehead turned temp. Devoutly emo, it's a photo blog full of brooding about conformity and crowing about overcoming addiction ("something that many great men, including myself, struggle with").

And yet the old Ryan is in there, with musings like "the only thing more feminine than being a mother is being a tease." He also includes a racy shot of girlfriend Kelly Kapoor (played by the hilarious Mindy Kaling):

"Explicit? Indecent? Erotic? Or commentary about the way in which women are treated in the workplace? Here's a woman, hard at work, pulled herself up by the bootstraps despite her ethnic heritage, but all you see is that she's topless. It's sad, but the saddest part is that the woman was willing to pose for this photograph without a single question as to the artist's intent. What happened to integrity?"
