A little bit of myself, Tina, a pinhead mask and some F o the C.

Tina has the mask on and I'm the one talking off camera.

When I got to work this morning, there were a couple of boxes of Dunkin Donuts in the employee lounge. Written on the front of the box was "Team building is easy. Just add donuts." The first thing I thought of was that we would need some team building exercise after eating all those donuts. Cracked myself up.

The other night my mum, my boyfriend and I were all at the local fish and chips place having burgers. At the end of the night my mum said, "Oh no! I've got lettuce in my sleeve." Okay, it wasn't tomato, but I completely cracked up and I felt too silly about explaining why I found the moment so funny. They wouldn't have understood the reference. Thank goodness I have you guys to talk to.

A nice comment I received from a new MySpace friend : :)

"I have just watched/listened to their video on your page and I have fallen out of my chair laughing...There are so many people I want to send it to!!! So now I need to find out more about them...Musicians and a show, too? I don't think I get HBO...must explore further."

I was walking through the Rideau Centre today and I swear to goodness I saw a guy wearing a red t-shirt with a still of Bret's angry dance. My jaw dropped as he walked by and I just stood there, agape, until I remembered I was late for my Greek Civ. class. Crazy. Of course, it was just a glimpse, so my eyes could have easily been playing a trick on me. Either way, it made my day.

I called my best friend immediately after hearing 'Foux Da Fa Fa'. She doesn't watch or like FoTC so she wouldn't have seen it.

Anyway, she and I bought one of those 'Learn French In 7 Days' type of deals so we'd go around singing the random French words and phrases to the tune of anything. We'd also have 'conversations' with each other by only saying the single vocabulary words that really meant nothing in the context of a conversation. We'd sing incorrect nonsense like this:

Her: J'habite a la boulangerie!
Her: Nonnnn! Voici le chein!

So yeah, 'Foux Da Fa Fa' was extra funny for that reason alone.

Ah yes, that's it...

Conchords phrases are now a huge part of me and my husband's vocabulary. When we talk about the weather or something that's going great, one of us has to say, "conditions are perfect."

I can't say "yes" anymore...I say, "yis." :D A few weeks ago I was listening to Business Time in the car with a friend and now she jokes that she won't ask me to go out on Wednesdays anymore.

I'm surprised how many times the word, "pie" comes up in my everday life too. I'm always belting out "I like pie!" from Leggy Blonde when I hear references to pie. It's ridiculous... :eyebrow:

"I like pie" has been a big pharse in the gaming world for a while now.. that and stuff like Pie vs Cake.. anyway a friend online just randomly said "I like Pie" to which I responded with "You had a budgie but it died?" I was amused.. they didn't get it tho =(

Pie and other such nonsense :0)

Yis! I know! :nod: Unless they're in on it, most people look at me like I'm wearing a funky eye patch or something. :worry: Then I have to explain where the reference came from, etc. I've found that either they're into it or they don't have a clue about the show. It's hit or miss from my experience. Now that the first season's ended, it'll be even harder to explain unless I refer folks to YouTube. Oh well. Another day, another topic. :|

This past week I have been trying to get the kids in my class to say "prisent" instead of "here" when I call roll. I just noticed yesterday that it took. All of them say it and very much like Murry. It is too funny to hear a child who is from the deep south of the USA try to say "prisent". I wonder if any of the parents would catch the reference if they heard their child say it.

I work in the children's department of a public library. Yesterday, one of the librarians was preparing to do a toddler storytime and said she needed to find a new fingerplay (think Eensy Weensy Spider) to do with the kids. I showed her the Do the Bird clip from Drive By and suggested she share with the children. We spent the rest of the morning flipping each other off.

Hubby and I have been saying "tin thirrrty" since we saw the first episode in June from Jemaine's HBO promo voiceover. We always ask each other if it's "tin thirrrty" yet . . . but alas, the first season is now over so we can't do that again until next season.

I love Murray's accent, we try to say things like him as well.

*Edit - and I'm finding myself saying "that's weeeid" a lot lately too.

I just came back from 3 days of travel for business (time) and had to deal with a lot of airport delays and cab drivers who got lost- I must have sang muthauckers to myself ten million times. It really got me through. :o

I was singing 'Pencils in the Wind' the other day at uni, and this first year girl asked me what it was because she thought it sounded familiar. When I explained it was by FotC etc... she said, "Oh yeah. My brother's into them. He's such a loser."

:cry: What a biyaatch.

Whenever me and my friend tell each other something about ourselves, and the other goes "Do you?", there is always a (cue Bowie accent) "...weeear it" not far behind.
