    Red face what "go in my block"means

    Hello everyone,

    in the movie "how i met your mother", there was a scene: Ted put on his suit as Barney's requiring, then Barney said, look at you, you beautiful baster, this is going in my block.

    what "this is going in my block" means? does it mean that what Ted does totally fits Barney's opinion of wearing and thus satisfied him?

    Thanks.

    Are you sure it wasn't 'This is going in my blog?'

    Thank you for your quick reply Rover, the movie I got has both Chinese and English lines, i am not sure whether English lines have been changed during the movie making, Do you mean in English "go in my block" makes no sense?

    It makes no sense. But "It's going in my book" would mean "This event is so significant that that when I write my memoirs, I'll include it."
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Barney's Blog - How I Met Your Mother - CBS.com

    "Barney" does write a blog, and has referenced it on the show. That seems the likely word used.
