5 Things Tuesday (HIMYM Edition)
Hello friends. I’m doing something different for my 5TT post. I hope you don’t mind. I could talk about what’s going on in my life, but sometimes that gets repetitive. Work here. Shoot there. Etc, etc.
Instead, I’m bringing you a special How I Met Your Mother edition of 5 Things Tuesday. That’s right. Technically there are no real guidelines to this series, so I can bring you any random 5 things I want to. And today, it’s 5 reasons why I’d marry Ted Mosby. HAHA. Omg this is already hilarious to me.
Even though he annoys my guy friends (one even called him a tool), I frickin love him. So here goes it. 5 Things.
1 HE WEARS JACK PURCELLS - First things first: I really like the way Ted dresses. Overall his wardrobe is great. Everything from casual wear to professional wear (b/c he’s a college professor). But the thing that completely wins me over is the fact that he wears Jack Purcells. Yeah. I’m kind of a shoe snob, especially when it comes to Jacks.
Maybe snob is too strong of a word. I feel like we’re on the same team! Because Jack Purcells are totally different from Chucks. But that discussion can be an entire separate post (we’ll save that for another day).
Anyways. Extra bonus points for just wearing awesome shoes.
2 TED MOSBY IS A COMPLETE DORK - I absolutely love dorks. I don’t know what it is, but when certain things that make you light up I just think it’s the greatest combination of hilarious and cute.
Anyways, some of my favorite dorky attributes of his are:
- the way he says “mid-aaay-vill” and “encyclo-paaay-dia” (medieval and encyclopedia)
- his love for Star Wars
- the way he lights up when he talks about architecture
- those red boots!
- the way he says “Lily, c’mon”
- his pure loyalty and love of being a New Yorker
3 HIS SMOOTH BEATBOXING - Seriously one of my ALL TIME favorite moments of HIMYM is when Ted thinks he can beatbox. IT IS SO FUNNY. Actually that whole episode is hilarious. But I can watch this scene 100x over and it’d still be hilarious.
(sorry for the poor quality - this is the best one I could find that would embed the video).
4 THIS VIDEO - No explanation. Nothing in particular. But this video cracks me up.
Maybe it’s not really a reason to want to marry Ted Mosby, but I love the entire interaction between the group.
5 TED MOSBY IS A COMPLETE ROMANTIC - Seriously, I love how he goes above and beyond what is expected. Granted, you don’t want to say “I love you” on the first date, but stealing the blue french horn for a girl is amazing. Or creating the perfect two minute date for a very busy doctor (even though you met her because of a butterfly tattoo).
I mean, c’mon seriously.
