About the Mother from How I Met Your Mother.

***Thanks for all the comments, but I’m closing down commenting on this article. It’s at over 650 comments and that’s a ton to read, People are saying the same things over and over. In the spirit of keeping the conversation going, I’ve summed up the bulk of the post and what people are saying here and have started a new thread called More on Who is the mother from HIMYM.

Like most posts tat I really enjoy it’s overly in depth, check it out and let me know what you think!


I feel that a big question for How I Met Your Mother fans has always been “Who is the mother?” And while we don’t have a definite answer, we can take what we do know so far and begin to formulate some ideas. This is a long one so go grab a drink and pull up a chair. By the way, HIMYM returns to us on March 17th! So hopefully soon there will be more to add to this list! Disclaimer: I love theories, but I have not posted anything here that cannot be backed up. Enjoy!
Who we know is NOT:Picture 4

1. Robin is not the Mother. We learn this in the first episode and and it is reconfirmed countless times in all 3 seasons. No matter how much people “want it to happen, ” it just won’t. Get used to disappointment. In fact, for those still


the Music that makes the show

I seem to have very…well let’s call them “particular” taste in Television Shows. I always have..don’t know why, then again maybe I’m just unique…like everyone else.

Scrubs and How I Met Your Mother… I am aware that is not a sentence but work with me here. Scrubs has been one of my favorite shows since Season 1. And it’s not just because of the style of the show of the fact that often I think of myself as Dr. Cox…well except that I didn’t do that whole Medical School thing. It’s the music, the soundtrack of the show. Some of my current favorite songs/artist I have found because of Scrubs or HIMYM.

I have posted countless comments on sites and forums asking about songs I didn’t know from a show. Well. At least for these two shows this isn’t really necessary anymore…why? Because someone else is doing it for you. How nice of them eh?

For Scrubs my choice is here. MOPNT does a great job of breaking up the songs and describing the moment that they happened in the show.

For How I Met Your Mother my choice is have you met ted? (HYMT). His music page can be found here. Now while it is not quite as comprehensive or up to date (hint, hint) as MOPNT, HYMT is a great resource for finding the name of that song you just can’t seem to get out of your head after watching the show.

Cheers and Thanks to “My Own Personal ‘Net Thing” and “have you met ted?” for helping me fill up my iPod on a weekly basis.

What the Awesomeness Poster Says

I watch very little television to be honest. In fact, I was about three shows, Scrubs, How I Met Your Mother and thanks to my wife, LOST. So last night, while watching How I Met Your Mother, I noticed the Awesomeness poster mentioned from Season 1. And I am pretty sure I figured out what it says…despite the poor quality of what I was looking at. Here are some screen shots and we will see if you agree.

Awesomeness 1

Now… Once I started making out words I had to laugh because it was what I figured it would be. From this picture I made out, “When I get sad, I stop being sad..” and then it gets too fuzzy. But I am fairly certain it ends with “and be awesome instead.”Awesomeness 2

Now, I know what you are saying..”Who really cares?”…Well I do so I’ll keep on. Now If you look at the second shot it looks like there is a little more. So I am pretty sure it says “True Story” and under it maybe has “Barney Stinson”. If you think differently let me know.

I’ll do my best to find the picture and Photoshop up a poster. I was also very interested in all the extra publicity the show is planning this year. See this press release for more information.

Be Awesome.

the Awesomeness Poster

How I Met Your Mother

Did anyone happen to catch the shot of Barney’s “Awesomeness” motivational poster on the season premier (Season 3, for those of you counting) of CBS’s How I Met Your Mother? I have been waiting for a clear shot of this poster since it was first mentioned in season 1. I’ve even photoshopped up some Awesomeness motivational posters that I was considering putting have put on CafePress.com (yes, a shameless plug).

The poster on Barney’s office wall was definitely not in the same position as season 1…Not that I am that retentive about details. Anyways, I’ll see if I can get some more details off the poster from the show. It looked like the photo was of a F16 fighter plane I had trouble making out any of the words other than “AWESOMENESS”. The episode was really good to…I’m glad it’s time for the new shows again. If anyone else has clues on this do let me know.
