An Office marriage

We know Jenna Fischer as Pam Beesly on NBC's The Office. Fischer and her beau, writer Lee Kirk, have announced their engagement, which occurred while the pair was vacationing in Europe. So romantic!

An Office marriageWhat you may not know about Jenna Fischer is this: Before she perfected her role as Pam on The Office, she herself worked as a receptionist in various offices. Fischer types 85 words per minute.

About her office gigs, she says, "I didn't want to be an extraordinary receptionist, because I didn't ever want to be promoted or be given more work. My time was really valuable to me. For example, I could type 80 words per minute, but I wouldn't tell people that. So when my boss would give me work, he would think it'd take two hours -- but it would really only take about 30 minutes. So I'd have, like, 90 minutes of fun time. I got it all done, I just did it...real slow."

Although Fischer considered becoming a veterinarian as a result of her love for animals, she ended up loving them solely as a the owner of a dog and cat. Lucky for us, she decided to pursue acting and hopes to play Pam for a very long time.

This will be the second marriage for Fischer and the first for Kirk. Her first marriage to director James Gunn lasted from 2000 through 2007. Last year, she called her fiance "my super-cute boyfriend."

Looks like now he will be her super-cute husband!
