1. WHY DOES EVERYONE ON THE PLANET NOT SHIP SERENA/BLAIR?

2. [personal profile] inlovewithnight and I have been mainlining How I Met Your Mother the past couple of weeks. Apparently I have an epic post in me about how Robin/Barney, while it looks great from a distance, doesn't actually work, because deep down they really want completely different things. Actually I've tried to write that post several times, and then abandoned it each time, because I realized I was projecting all over the place. But seriously, dudes, watch ANY EPISODE WHERE EITHER OF THEM DEALS WITH THE PROSPECT OF BABIES OR THEIR CAREERS. Who is invested in their career and traveling the world as part of the adventure of their career? Is it both of them? IT IS NOT. Who really really loves babies? Is it both of them? IT IS NOT.

Basically I have this theory where in an alternate universe where bisexuality and polyamory are the norm, Barney is the Ted of the group. THINK ABOUT IT.

Or, rather, the second Ted, because in that universe, the show is not called How I Met Your Mother, it's called How I Married Barney. Or it's still called How I Met Your Mother, but the mother is part of Barney's dream "2.5 kids and 2.5 partners" scenario, where the two partners are Ted and the mother (or, ideally, Robin, but again, she does not want kids) and the ".5" is a placeholder for the series of partners he and/or Ted and/or the mother have.

3. Then today we ran out of HIMYM DVDs and I couldn't be bothered to AHEM the sixth season just yet, plus thanks to Tumblr I spent the last few days all starry-eyed over pictures of Blair and Serena, so we watched the first few episodes of Gossip Girl. SERIOUSLY WHY DOES EVERYONE ON THE PLANET NOT SHIP SERENA/BLAIR??????!?!?!?!?!?!!!!????

4. "I don't even know why you went to boarding school to begin with. Do you know how it felt calling your house when you didn't show up at school and having your mom say 'Serena didn't tell you -- that she moved to Connecticut?'"

WELL BLAIR CAME BY YOUR HOUSE THE OTHER DAY
YOUR MOTHER SAID YOU WENT AWAY
SHE SAID THERE WAS NOTHING THAT BLAIR COULD'VE DONE
THERE WAS NOTHING NOBODY COULD SAY
WELL YOU AND BLAIR YOU'D KNOWN EACH OTHER EVER SINCE LONG BEFORE YOU WERE SIXTEEN
SHE WISHES SHE COULD'VE CALLED, SHE WISHES SHE COULDVE TALKED TO YOU
JUST TO SAY GOODBYE, BOBBY JEAN STEVIE V. SERENA V.

5. Oh thank God, Night is apparently the only person besides me who doesn't care about Nate or Chuck, let alone Dan. UGHHHHHHH WHY IS BLAIR/SERENA SO AMAZING TO ME. Like, I have a couple other BFF OTPs (Ted/Barney, Bruce/Steve), and yet even though I'm totally into pairings that involve BFFs, not all BFF combinations result in pairings I'll be into. BUT SERIOUSLY BLAIR/SERENA, BRUCE/STEVE, AND TED/BARNEY, LET'S TALK ABOUT THEM.

6. Night and I were both all sad about how we had to go to work tomorrow until we remembered that it's a four-day week. We're still kind of sad, but at least the week that starts tomorrow doesn't last as long as usual.

7. She also thinks I should write the Bruce/Steve I really want to write, and just find/replace "recording studio" with "McLaren's", and "Bruce" and "Steve" with "Ted" and "Barney", respectively, not least because I'd probably get more readers that way. We E Street Bandomers are nothing if not realistic.

8. Is the way I feel about Blair and Serena the way fans of dudeslash pairings in things that otherwise have jack going for them feel ALL THE TIME?
