Don't read this if you haven't seen the finale of HIMYM!

I just caught up on How I Met Your Mother, which ended last week but we were at a ballgame and then I had to keep myself from watching it because it was finals blah blah blah. So I just watched.


The first half was so great--Lily and Marshall's baby was born! Welcome to the imaginary television universe, Marvin Wait-For-It Eriksen! So good.

At the end (of the first half) they played Cloud Cult's "You Were Born"...which is what I sang to babies  while I worked as the chaplain on the Labor & Delivery floor this summer. I burst into tears. I had to wait about ten minutes before I could start the second half. First world sigh.

And then Barney did ridiculous magic in the airport. So weird. And proposed to Quin! Which I hoped was fake. And then it was! And I can't believe Ted and Victoria rode off into the sunset! Not pleased...because we all know that she isn't the mom because she isn't the roommate of the grad student blah blah blah.

And then OF COURSE it was Robin and Barney getting married at the end because that is all I have ever wanted in the HIMYM world! I have been a Robin + Barney from day one. I was never even a Ted + Robin fan, frankly.

I jumped up and down and squealed when the episode ended. Like you do, when you're an adult and great things are happening on television.

This concludes my total triviality for the day!
