Promos By Hyphen: The CM Punk Series Finale

I just finished binge watching 9 seasons of How I Met Your Mother. After 9 seasons, the show signed off the air with a finale that most of its viewers hated (more on this soon). In January, CM Punk left the WWE with no notice and again, most of the fans hated this.

Repost: LJ Idol: Week 2 - The Missing Stair

I'm currently in the LiveJournal Idol competition for Season 9. My second entry of the season got really nice feedback, so I thought I would share it here as well.I was playing at my neighborhood park one day as a child. Alone. This was the 80s, so my dad let me do such things. It also helped that I was in full view of my grandfather's house.

I spent the sunny afternoon swinging, rolling in the grass, playing Ninja Turtles (one of the reasons my imagination is so awesome), leaping off of the monkey bars, and just having a great time. Even though I was by myself, I was still making the most of it.

Challenge Completed: Catch up on all of How I Met Your Motherand watch the series finale live March 31st

EDIT: Challenge Completed! It came down to the wire, but I flew threw Season 9 episodes 1-22 March 29-31 and watched the series finale live on the 31st.

I was mad at first, just like a lot of fans. But after sleeping on it, I realized that this was the perfect ending for the show. More on that in a future column.

Plus there's an alternate ending. So that should make some fans happy...right?So I've accepted a challenge to catch up on all of How I Met Your Mother by the series finale March 31st. I started watching with Season 1 Episode 1 on Netflix this past fall. I have 7 episodes left in Season 8 and possibly 23 episodes of Season 9 depending on how fast I catch up. And of course, I'll have to rely on the powers of the Internet Fairy to bring me Season 9 since it is not on Netflix yet. *cue dramatic music*

We'll see how it goes...
