Sunday marks one year since I began work here at Evil Beet as your Weekend Editor. I thank you for all of your support both then and as I moved to weekdays. For every reader that has vomited their venomous vitriol in my direction, I’ve encountered a hundred-fold of kind and wonderful people. I even thank the vomiters for reading and sharing their thoughts.
I’ve also learned a lot about myself over the past year, but no self-revelation has been more jarring than when I realized that I don’t watch enough television. I had to research the premise of How I Met Your Mother because it’s yet another show that I’ve never seen. Odd really, since I totally love Neil Patrick Harris. And odd since I write entertainment and celeb news for a living. As I start Year Two here at EB, I commit to watching a lot more television. I’ve spent the past few days teaching my kids how to cook, drive and do their own laundry, so I should be all set to dedicate about 8 hours a day to the tube starting next week.
Anyway, if you’re a fan of HIMYM you already know that the audience doesn’t know who the mother of Ted’s kids is. In honor of the 100th episode of How I Met Your Mother, it sounds like there’s a chance that you might finally meet the mom. And she’s, uh … hot.
Rachel Bilson has signed on for a one-episode appearance that is expected to happen around that 100th episode, which is when the question of “Who?” will finally be answered.
I like Rachel Bilson. I think she’s cute and had a great clothing collection prior to getting Lindsayed — that’s my new term for mysterious, masked home invasions — but I don’t get the Rachel and Hayden Christensen match up at all. They are one of those couple that got engaged, yet I can not envision them ever getting married. Sorry, Rach!
