It's the twentieth anniversary of the first Simpsons episode today. Who is your favorite Simpsons character—Ralph? Sideshow Bob? Ned Flanders? An actual Simpson?
I remember first learning of The Simpsons during my first day of high school in 1989. I was in gym, wearing an incredibly dorky outfit I remember to this day***, and some kid said "Don't have a cow, man." Then the gym teacher had him explain where that was from.
Favorite character? Hmmm. I like Homer and his dad, but I think I really am most amused by guest stars, like Keith Richards and John Waters.
But on to my outfit!
*** It was not my gym outfit (no actual gym the first day), but a first-day-of-school outfit I had worked very hard on: white-and-red Nikes, pink scrunchy socks with rainbow flecks, red shirt (tucked in), purple shorts with a red belt, 3-4 plastic bracelets in red & purple, earrings too I'm sure. Plus red eyeglass frames. I thought this was -so- awesome. dharmagirl, oh, the memories!
