Found this in my notebook not too long ago.
By my estimate, that note has to be 4-5 years old.
I’m very unsure why I never ripped it out.
Probably left it there as a cautionary lesson that I’ve forgotten again and again.
On the surface, at least….

Everything below comes from How About Orange. Seems like a pretty neat idea.
Looking for extra entertainment during the Academy Awards on March 7? Back by popular demand, it’s Oscar bingo. I made cards for our party last year, and it was really fun to play. You can download this year’s bingo cards right here; it’s a PDF with 12 different sheets. My big disclaimer: I have no idea if it will be possible to win at all, or perhaps someone could win ten minutes into the telecast. If it’s a bust, please don’t send me hate mail. To supplement your bingo game, you can download and print out the official ballot of nominees right here. It’s always fun to see who guesses the most winners. And who guesses the least, so you can make fun of them.

If you don’t already know that I think “How I Met Your Mother” is the greatest show on the air, it probably means one of four things is true:
1.) You just started reading my blog, hopefully after being linked here from another wonderful blog
2.) You don’t own a TV, so anytime I talk about TV, you just skip through to the next entry
3.) You hate awesomeness, so anytime I talk about HIMYM you punch yourself until you lose consciousness and your flailing arm navigates you away from the page
4.) You live in Canada and won’t see the show until a few year from now (After all, Robin said the 80′s didn’t happen in Canada until 1993)
That said, one of my favorite HIMYM fan-blogs is “Be Awesome Instead”. This guy has such total devotion that he tracks down and hosts every song ever played during the show (not so tough with cell phones that will tell you want the song is just by hearing a same, but a sign of dedication nonetheless).
Reading the most recent entries on BAI, I came across this little ditty, and I have to say, I was immediately laughing, and excited to post the video here (and a bit thirsty after hearing all the bar references).
Without further ado, here’s “A Daughter’s Lament”, the tale of Ted Moseby’s daughter:

I admire people who can write in, what I call for lack of a better term, long form. My brain always edits things down; can’t help but cut to the chase. This is probably why I just want to succeed and move on to the next thing.
Then again, maybe it’s not my brain, maybe it’s my self-consciousness thinking “nobody wants to see the middle steps, get on with it before you bore them”.
