After all these years, it's gotten very serious for me and HIMYM.

Last night the 100th episode of How I Met Your Mother aired. It was a solid ep which moved the plot forward (YAY) and also ended with a very solid and appropriate musical number. Plus we had Tim Gunn and Rachel Bilson as guest stars. I loved the way they intro’d Tim Gunn (“TV’s Tim Gunn”), and I love that Bilson’s character brought us one step closer to the “Mother”. Too bad it wasn’t her though, huh? Also, too bad we only got the smallest of teases about the Mother. I think the show needs to leave the ‘mother’ concept alone until they’re prepared to fully take it on. Otherwise it just leaves us frustrated and smashing TVs…or something.

I talked with Alsyon Hannigan a little before Christmas and we discussed the 100th episode of himym. I remember that she mentioned they had cake. I am seriously in need of sugar, so maybe I should make a cake in honor of the himym musical ep, and eat it in honor of good TV that doesn’t get canceled. Sure, I’ve had some times of anger with himym – when they had Speidi and that Kardashian guest star on magazines, how Ted actually was going to marry needy/pathetic Stella (with the sloppy hair that looked like a wig but wasn’t – and I swear I actually love Sarah Chalke!), and the way sometimes I think the show is cutting it so close and they will never reveal the mother before it gets canceled. But there have been far, far better times and I overwhelmingly love this show. I love it before bed, I love it on snow days. I love it on weekends, I love it on sick days. I love it when I order a pizza, I love it when I make popcorn. I love watching it by myself, I love watching it with friends (as long as they know they cannot talk as it airs, TV is srs bidnuss). For better and worse, in my own personal sick days and non sick days…

I kind of forget how that wedding speech goes, but basically I’ve just married myself to the show. You’re the witness. There are no rings because I’m frugal and how would I explain that to my parents? They already think I’m nuts. If I show up wearing a diamond ring from a TV show, they’re going to make me go to TV rehab or something. (And I hope there is no such place, because man what a HORRIBLE place that would be. But I would support a reality TV rehab. Not a show, just a rehab where we get people hooked off of reality shows and back into quality scripted stuff. If I inherit lots of money from a generous benefactor, that’s what I’ll do. Basically, give me money and I’ll make things better. That’s basically what all people who ask for money say, right? And then you don’t actually have to do anything..except I would!)
