Magazine:

Time for another installment of 20 Questions, this time with member Mrs. Red the Trucker.

1. How long have you been watching "The Simpsons"?

Since the beginning, way back in the 20th century.

2. Who is your favorite Simpsons character?

Krusty's daughter Sophie and Ralph Wiggum.

3. What Simpsons character are you most like and why?

Probably most like Marge - my real name is Margaret, my boyfriend drinks beer and has a big tummy - oh wait, he's on Atkins now. I used to feel most like Lisa - maybe I outgrew that!

4. Are your friends and family fans of the Simpsons?

Ken is, several other friends are, and my mom went to UCLA with Sally Stevens and is still great friends with her. We're hoping she'll come to the wedding and sing "The Gartins..." the way she sings "The Simpsons..." (that's her and her daughter singing, by the way).

5. What is your favorite quote from a Simpsons episode?

Homer: "Just because I don't care doesn't mean I don't understand."

6. What types of Simpsons collectibles do you collect?

I don't collect Simpsons collectibles, I collect boys who collect Simpsons collectibles (just one in my collection so far).

7. What item in your collection is your favorite?

Well, okay, I do have one or two, and my favorite is my Marge Simpson slippers. I also like bottle opener that says, "Mmmmmm beer" when you use it.

8. What is the most outrageous (or difficult) thing you have done to obtain a Simpsons collectible?

Agree to marry Ken so I can get my grubby little hands on his vast collection. Mine, mine, MINE!

9. What's the most you ever spent on a Simpsons collectible?

I dropped at least $20 on Homer slippers for Ken.

10. What World of Springfield figure would you most like to see (that has not been announced)?

The octuplets...although would they be considered "announced"?

11. Are you a completist? An opener or a MIMP collector? Why?

I am the supportive mate of a completist opener. What's a MIMP? Is that like a gimp?

12. What are your favorite television shows (excluding the Simpsons)?

Survivor, Will & Grace, original Star Trek

13. What celebrity do you want to see guest star on the Simpsons?

Orlando Bloom...the hunkiest elf of all!

14. How and when did you find the SCS site?

Ken keeps making it my browser's home page (dammit, get your own computer!).

15. In what ways do you think the hobby of collecting Simpsons has changed in the past few years?

I remember living in NYC in the early '90s and the only thing you could collect were bootleg Simpsons t-shirts (like "Black Bart" with Bart as a little black kid)

16. What was the first Simpsons item you ever bought?

Homer slippers

17. What is the one Simpsons item you want the most but do not have?

I want Phil Hartman back.

18. What else do you collect?

Russel Wright dinnerware, creepy old houses (one so far)

19. Who influenced you the most from the show (be it character, writer, actor, etc.)?

I'm quite partial to Bonita Pietila, because her name comes up early in every episode and I always think "How the heck to do pronounce Bonita Pietila?"

20. Anything you would like to add?

I'd like to add several zeros to the end of my paycheck, but the bank keeps rejecting it.
