How I Met Your Mother thingie  
so quick spoiler about tonight's episode, plus speculation.

So, Carly (as in Uncle Barney's half-sister, who's at college) is the mother, right? That's what I got.

Me three!

(although it's always been an unwritten rule that if someone names a woman, it's not the mother [because the kids would've stopped the narrative and said -- "Wait! That's mom's name!" or something])

But it's a good reason why she'd be at the wedding, if it's Barney getting married. And Ted did say the mother was in a college class. Hmmm...

Didn't Ted say at one point that he would change their mother's name in the story? Or am I making that up?

Oh, he did? (That would make a lot more sense.) I don't remember that, but I don't exactly have a longterm memory for this show either. Hmmm...

I am soooo behind on this show....and now I am judging myself. Also I finally got a twitter and thus am stalking you. Hope you don't mind.

She could be! After all, college could mean grad school (just because I'm thinking about how the mother was at a club on St. Patrick's Day 2008, so she probably had to be 21 then, plus it's less icky than Ted falling in love with someone who's like 19 now) and I could see her and Barney not meeting each other for a long time, thus prolonging the eventual meeting of the mother. Of course, there's always the possibility that it's another red herring, and they'll introduce Barney's sister to Ted and the rest of the gang a few episodes from now.

I like the idea, though, and I wouldn't mind it happening.

That would be awesome (and so much better then what was going through my head)!!!!!
