The dvd-makers, in their infinite wisdom, have given me the option of watching the final episode with the "alternate ending", thereby ensuring that I will not hate them for the rest of eternity. In my reality, Ted and the mother lived happily ever after, and that whole Ted/Robin endgame thing was just a horrible dream.

On the other hand, even though I heard about the broadcast ending, and even though I'm still annoyed by Barney and Robin splitting up, it was never really going to ruin the show for me, because it wasn't at all why I was watching. Emotional arcs weren't the point; the point was the most spectacular use of unreliable narrator I've ever seen.

So, not only is my birthday already Geek Pride Day, Towel Day, the first showing of Star Wars, and the Glorious Twenty-Fifth of May, but now it's Barney and Robin's wedding day – and hence, the day that Ted meets the mother.


What is it about geeky writers and my birthday?
