Why didn't anyone tell me how funny How I Met Your Mother is? I watched an episode by chance recently and a. it had Mandy Moore, who I will forever adore because she was so awesome in SAVED!, as a guest-star, and b. Neil Patrick Harris! Alyson Hannigan! Jason Segel! Hello, parade of AWESOME!!

I admit I've never seen Josh Radnor in anything before, but he's fab as Ted and anyway, I watched a few more episodes from the current season last night and now I'm totally hooked on the show and am trying to decide if I should get the first two seasons on dvd. Has anyone else seen the show? Are the first two seasons worth watching?

Other stuff:

Don't forget today is your LAST CHANCE to win a copy of Perfect You--so if you haven't done it yet, leave a comment here, and you could win Perfect You--one month before it's in stores!!

I could talk about watching the Oscars, but I don't need to because Meg Cabot sums it all up way faster--and funnier--than I ever could.

A two-part interview with uber-famous agent Donald Mass--part one and part two--I was especially caught by his take on blogging, which seems to be the hot topic of discussion this week.

I admire Susan Beth Pfeffer because she's an amazing writer (I know the dead and the gone is coming out soon, but I wish it was out NOW so I could buy a bunch of copies and give them away so everyone can love the awesomeness) but now I also admire her because she's discussing her work-in-progress with great candor and humor on her blog. As some of you know, I can barely bring myself to discuss something *after* I'm done writing it, and so I love that she is just out there talking about what she wants to do. (And btw, the book she's talking about possibly writing? WOW.)

Finally, from agent Kristin Nelson, a reminder that No Two Editors Are Alike

How I Met Your Mother is HILARIOUS! It suffers because of the time it's on - I often forget to watch it, but whenever I do, I'm glad I did. We must talk about this further!

I definitely recommend checking out the first two seasons. It's uneven in places (but what shows aren't, especially at the start?) but overall excellent. I love it!

Welcome aboard! The show is wonderful, and it has a pretty amazing fan community. Which episodes did you catch? Season 1 and 2 is excellent. If you want to chat more about the show with other fans check out the How I Met Your Mother blog: Have You Met Ted?

I've only caught a few episodes of HIMYM, but I really like it and it always makes me laugh.

softindierocker, ITA with you about the 2006 Oscars. I was so shocked that Crash won instead of Brokeback Mountain.

And jess, jd, and juanita, I am LOVING HIMYM. I just saw Slap Bet recently and it was LEGENDARY!

Oh, yes but I am very, very happy that 'Falling Slowly' by Glen Hansard (from The Frames) and Marketa Irglova!!!! Indie music represent!
