My friend Tina and I were in a QuikTrip trying to decide what kind of soda to get. The girl working there walked behind us saying to the other girl working ,"Did Steve tell you that?". I said out loud "where did you get that preposterous notion?".

We did also go to a hallmark store and saw a huge row of greeting cards with songs in them. I picked one up and asked where do they put the speakers.

I was watching Ace of Cakes on the Food Network Sunday night after the FotC episode and burst out laughing when they joked about getting tattoos as a "team building exercise".

A friend of mine is going away for 9 months.
Needless to say, that we are "not crying" at all. It's just those onions...

Last night, when my wife got home,...I told her "I'm not crying....I've just been cuttin' onions"... but then again, I actually was cutting onions for dinner.

I've also noticed that I've been saying "Flip" or "flipin'" alot lately.

I"m a teacher, and I tell my students "it's business time". They don't know the TRUE meaning, of course.

I consistently ask people whether they have one really funky sequin space suit, or several ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-changes.

When I'm hungry I always say I want a "red delicious."
I also flip the "bird" to my aunt and mom when I'm mad.
I say flip a lot too.
:P

I tend to sketch what's on my mind on whatever bit of paper that's near me, so I found myself illustrating the lyrics 'All the ladies with your babies make your babies shake their booties yeah' or something similar. It looks kind of like child abuse, in a fun way.

I couldn't help but imagine des discothèques pour les bébés. Oh the possibilities.

Well hopefully you are teaching 5 year olds then :lol: I know of kids as young as 10 who know of the Conchords and have seen those HBO One Night Stand clips. And have some of their music. And they know what it refers to :roll:

YouTube, Facebook, TheArseOfTheInter... I mean MySpace, Bebo pages with mentions, makes for the Conchords being easy to stumble across now.

My day job is writing software. Specifically I write game code for video slot machines.

My current project is a new version of the game Frog Princess. Inside this game is the Pick a Prince game, where the Frog Princess picks a Prince and the prince turns into a frog.

So lots of my file and variable names have thing like Prince in them.

Subsequently I find myself singing Prince of Parties as I leave the office every day.

It kinda sucks actually :)

I have the best husband in the world. Not only does he tolerate my undying love for FotC, but he made my birthday a "Very Flight of the Conchords" birthday (his words). I woke up and there was a red delicious apple and a banana on the bed side table. He gave me a map of New York, a roll of tape, some business socks, the movie Labyrinth, a croissant and soup for lunch, a bag of very expensive mixed nuts, a beer, a map of New Zealand, and we had kabobs for dinner. My kids got me a magic card that has a robot on the front and plays Mr. Roboto, and he wrote:

"This card has one funtion--to wish you a Happy Birthday! And I guess the second one is to stop wishing you a Happy Birthday at this point (he drew a picture of a card closing). It's kinda like a walkman. Hope you enjoyed your magic card".

Like I said I have the best husband ever. It was a very FotC birthday!
