What the hell is a Conchord?

Do I get extra credit for two posts in one day? A Get out of Jail Free card, perhaps? No? Anyway.....

Oh My God.

The Flight of the Conchords is coming out on DVD. Tuesday. Where the hell have I been that I missed this momentous occasion???

You see, the Flight of the Conchords played a special part in my labor with Anjali's birth. After the stressful morning of misunderstanding that my inducement was to be the evening and not in the morning, X and I were out of sorts. We went for some Persian buffet for lunch, put Arun down for a nap and settled into catching up on our HBO lineup from the night before. While watching the Flight of the Conchords, my labor pains began. It is SO painful to giggle while having a contraction. I will never, ever forget that weird sensation because holy crap, the Conchords are THAT funny that you cannot stop giggling even when a contraction begins. Furthermore, when I came home after Anjali's birth and was still recovering from the Baby Birthin' , I still had a hard time watching them because all the giggling made my girly business hurt.

So, yes. I must own this DVD set. The memories, people.

The memories

Hey, can I come over and watch with you when you get the DVDs? I don't have HBO anymore and I can't be bothered to watch shows online. I keep hearing how good it is and now I'm intrigued.

Oh dear god, I love that show soooo much. I may have to own that first season. Which episode were you watching when you went into labor??

I am sure we will have to get it as well - hubby loves it and how fun is it that I can say to the big girls - binary solo and the immediately break out with 00001100011001 etc. It makes me chuckle every time.
