Why: He’s flawless. I can’t imagine that there is anything he is NOT good at. He has charm, talent, humor, grace, class, snark, and good looks to spare
When: Since How I Met Your Mother premiered (2005) – right this very second
Level of Obsession: I threw a viewing party for his Emmy hosting gig (one which I, a non-religious person, PRAYED for) and served NPH themed treats such as: Barney’s LegenDairy Brownie Sundaes, Nachos a la NPH, Stinson’s Shrimp Cocktail and Dr. Horrible’s Hors d’oeuvres. I may have thrown a temper tantrum befitting a 4-year-old each time he’s been robbed of an Emmy by Jeremy fucking Piven. If I break down and get on Twitter it will probably be his fault
“Ahhhh!” Moment(s): His mushroom popping, hooker branding “NPH character” in the Harold and Kumar movies; flirting with Miss Raimi on Regis and Kelly; Barney’s season 3-4 pining for Robin on HIMYM; ; Dr. Horrible’s Sing Along Blog but especially “My Eyes” and the very last scene which breaks. my. heart.
Is there anyone cooler than NPH is right now? He’s everywhere doing everything and doing it so well! He acts, sings, dances, hosts, and does magic for chrissakes! I was bitching all through EW’s “2009 Best and Worst ” issue going “where is NPH?? How can he not be one of the Entertainers of the Year?? HELLO?? But they redeemed themselves in the center of The Bullseye with Neil Patrick Harris hosts 2009, and we give him a standing O. Well played, EW. I find him so charming and delightful and fun to watch doing anything, I guarantee he could read recipes off a cake box and I would giggle madly. I have a friend who has the same NPH fantasy I have: that we’re buddies and go to wine and cheese tastings, martini bars, and farmer’s markets and buy tasteful stuff and snark on obnoxious people. He literally lights up my life the moment I see him in anything, I can’t imagine he’s any less awesome in real life.
