I am a total geek for "The Simpsons." I mean, I am sure I am a geek in many other ways, but I am willing to admit to the Simpsons thing. I don't care that it should have probably should have gone off the air seven years ago, or that you have to suspend disbelief of disbelief in order to keep up with the changes they have made over the years, I still think it's the best show on T.V.
I still mourn Troy McClure. And Maude Flanders. And the original voice of Manjula Nahasapeemapetilon. And yes, I spelled that last name from memory. I also can tell you the layout of the Simpson's house.
I have Simpsonized myself. I have Simpsonized my family. Actually, that is the only representation of the entire family I have (circa 2008). I would Simpsonize Meg if the Simpsonizer wasn't broken. I am actually thinking that I will write to the illustrators to see if they could do it for me for a small fee. Or large fee. Really, it doesn't matter -- that is how important it is to me.
I have all the DVDs, and the movie on DVD. I own Simpsons chess. And Simpsons Monopoly. And Simpsons Scene it. I have both Simpsons albums. I have figurines. I have all books -- even the one about exploring philosophy through the Simpsons. I even have the Simpsons bath salts, which I still use even though they gave me a rash. If I could have one wish granted, well, it would be for world peace. Of course, if I was granted a second wish because my first wish was so noble, I would wish to be a character on the Simpsons.
I love the Simpsons so much I don't even care that the fact it is now 20 years old makes me feel ancient.
