I don’t usually do this, but…what the hell. Tonight’s episode of “How I Met Your Mother” on CBS will feature an actress who some of you may recognize as my mother. She’ll be playing the part of an older lady. If there are multiple older ladies in tonight’s episode, I promise to post something later to describe which one she played. This is relevant to my blog because:
A) She’s my mom – Duh!
B) She’s been featured in a few of my posts and will likely be featured in a few more – so your having a visual of her will enhance the reading experience, right?
C) CBS needs the ratings so maybe they’ll appreciate my efforts. This may lead to their creative people taking a look at my idea for “America’s Next Top Mortician”.
Enjoy the show!

Well that particular episode probably won’t be on tonight over here in the UK, so we need more info about series/episode number please! 🙂
haha what? Is she an actress?
So, essentially, this is how we meet your mother! That’s. . . .wait for it. . . awesome!
I’m starting to think it might have been a good idea for me to find out if she has any lines or if she’s just going to be standing there looking pretty.
It really doesn’t matter if she’s playing the role of potted plant (actually, that would be kind of cool). It’s pretty neat that she was part of it at all.
Very cool! My husband and son love that show, but they’re behind on the seasons. I’ll have to let them know.
You must take after your Dad ’cause your Mom is adorable. *grin*
Of course, by that I mean…you’re so handsome!
Sadly, I don’t have cable tv so if there’s a way to YouTube it, please post the video.
I’ve got to remember to watch it…this could get embarrassing
You need one of those shock watches. Gives you a little “jolt” when it’s time.
By the way, when is my next Nudge post date?
Yo, dude. The schedule is on NWR, right sidebar. Check it and set your (shock) watch. *grin*
FYI: You didn’t miss much on the TV show. I wouldn’t have watched more than 5 minutes of it without Mommy dearest being on it.
What we do for family. Out of curiosity…what type of commercials ran during the show? ‘Cause I know you paid attention.
I muted it. I’ll be posting a new TV-related blog in the next day or two.
Does she have a number, like Older Lady #1?
Status update: I’m 9 minutes into the episode and I’m realizing why I never got around to watching this show in all the years it’s been on – Wow…this is…umm…well…this is not a show I would watch under any other circumstances.
18 minutes in, she made her appearance as Aunt Muriel in the pink jacket. For those of you keeping track, that means there’s only 12 minutes left. Too much Neil Patrick Harris, not enough Mom for my tastes so far.
This is seriously so cool! Your mom is so badass and an inspiration to us all. I need to know if she was always into acting or if it is something she decided to take on after all of you finally left the nest.
She’s been acting since before I was born, though having 4 sons in rapid succession slowed her down for a few years. She’s been in lots of things over the years.
Well, a big round of applause to her for continuing what she loves to do. After having 4 boys in a row, there isn’t a roll she couldn’t handle. Please let us know when she makes her next appearance.
