I’m a huge Netflix fan! In the rare moments that I’m actually home, I fire-up Netflix and get things done while it plays in the background. I hate lounging. I’m not the type of person who can sit-around watching a show — I’m a Capricorn, for God’s sake. Capricorns are known for their workaholic tendencies. So having Netflix allows me to feel fulfilled in the work arena. It also keeps my mind going — and on occasion it also prevents me from venturing too far into Self Pityland (it helps with breakup recovery!).
My latest Netflix adventure is How I Met Your Mother from the NBC network. Because its main character is wife-hunting, it’s chock-full of lighthearted dating jokes, advice, lessons and more. And even though I’m multi-tasking while watching, I still catch a lot of festive dating truths. Some of those truths comes from one of the most ridiculous versions of the male dating dog — Barney Stinson — played by the very talented Neil Patrick Harris. His ridiculous antics on the show are a culmination of every wickedly dickheaded douche (male or female!) whom you may have dated (or married!). And his character, Barney Stinson, has a blog. That’s right. You read me.
Because the entire series is available, you’re able to absorb endless character traits and history that are carried throughout each episode. So when a detail like Barney’s blog is mentioned, you can’t help but chuckle, because you feel like you’re part of the gang… in on the joke… a member of the family.
Today I decided to Google Barney’s blog, hoping the network actually took that extra step to flesh-out such a great show. They did! Meet:

The blog is legen-wait for it-dary! Enjoy!!
And Happy New Year, folks! Thanks for following!
