Time for another installment of 20 Questions, this time with member VoteQuimby2002.

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

Technically since the Tracey Ullman days. The first episode I ever watched was the Christmas special. I taped it and all. I thought it was just going to be a one time shot. Go figure! I'm happy it's lasted this long! :)

2. Who is your favorite Simpsons character?

Homer without a doubt! Homer is one of the sweetest characters! He's so dense it's cute! His misadventures always keep me entertained. If I'm down all I have to do is turn on The Simpsons and watch Homer! Another character I'm fond of is KANG. Not Kodos! I dun like Kodos!

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

I think I'm a healthy mix of a few characters..

Lisa: She always questions things, and challenges peoples beliefs. She has her own opinions and nobody can tell her different. She's brave! She became a vegetarian, a Buddhist, she's fearless! You can always count on Lisa for clarity. I find myself doing some of the things Lisa does. I question, and challenge everyone! I think I may get on peoples nerves at times.. Just like Lisa! *laughs*

Bart: He's mischievous, and always good for a laugh! I find myself always being a good jokester! I also tend to be a little mischievous, but we won't talk about that! *shifty look*

Comic Book Guy: He's cynical, sarcastic, and funny (even if he doesn't mean to be). In my every day life I tend to be a bit cynical. I mean I don't walk around saying "I hate life" but I tend to be pessimistic. Almost in a funny way though not so peevish. Just like Comic Book Guy. Sarcasm? I think we all have a little of this!

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

No! Believe it or not! Sucks huh? They all hate the show. My Mom sort of digs it. She liked "Jaws Wired Shut". But she wouldn't actually watch it every night, like myself. My Dad thinks it's so funny how I'm obsessed with the show, and collecting. My friends just think I'm crazy. They don't know what they're missing though! :P

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

I have so many it's hard to name just one, but there is a quote that Homer says that every single time I think about it I burst out into laughter...

"Maybe it's the beer talking Marge but you got a butt that won't quit. They got those big chewy pretzels here merJanthfgrr five dollars??!!!? Get outta here" LOL!

Another funny one..

"Badger my ass! It's probably Milhouse!"

6. What types of Simpsons collectibles do you collect?

The first Simpsons items I collected were the BK camping figures. I'll be damned if I can find them now though. I'll collect anything with The Simpsons on it. That's how much of a fiend I am. My cousin actually got me started back in the summer of '00. She bought me the Living Room, Homer, Bart, and Lisa for my birthday! *kiss* I love her!

7. What item in your collection is your favorite?

Right Now, Has to be HANDS DOWN THOH2. Kang ROCKS! His figure is so impressive to say the least. I think Playmates outdid themselves with this figure!

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

I was one of the faithful TRU everyday'ers. I went, and called TRU everyday for about two weeks to find THOH2. I eventually got it! Thanks to my lovely Mother! *kiss* She also found the Christmas set for me!

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

Right now I'm trying my hardest to get the CC Lemon Lunchbox, so if that comes through that'll be a large piece of change! As of right now the most I spent on a figure was $25.99 for Barney, and for a playset $39.99 for THOH2 and The Christmas Set.

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

Gil! Gil! Gil! I want Gil! I would also LOVE to see Frank Grimes made. A would also love to see "Quizmaster Homer" made.

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

A completist to the core, and a MOC'er. I long for the day when I can *finally* complete my entire WoS collection to date, and open them all up. I have a weird mentality. I just need to be complete to open!

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

I'm a sucker for all those cheesy reality shows.. Survivor, CSI, Mama's Family, Sex & The City (a little racy!), Real World, Howard Stern, Dismissed, Trading Spaces, Roseanne, Married With Children, Good Eats (food network), Iron Chef (food network), & Martha Stewart. It's a good thing!

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

OoOh good one! Umm.. Mike Myers. I would love to hear him do some sort of Irish accent like in Shrek! Or a Dr.Evilesque voice!

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

Probably in Late August, Early September. I lurked for a bit, and then finally registered. I didn't post as much in the beginning, and felt kind of out of the loop, but now I post quite regularly, and feel like I'm finally making a mark! ;) No pun intended! *laughs*

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

It's picked up A LOT! I think it's gotten quite popular, and now everybody wants to be in on The Simpsons craze!

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

The BK camping toys. I also bought a Bart T-shirt. It was black, and Bart was on his skateboard .. saying "Cowabunga Dude".

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

The CC Lemon Lunchbox! Without a doubt!

18. What else do you collect?

I collected Sesame Street beans for a bit. I'm really into collecting Shrek stuff now, so there goes more of my money! Oy... I'm going broke! :P Ebay is the biggest culprit!

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

Lisa Simpson. No doubt. She has inspired me to do better things, and to be a better person. Many people may find that ridiculous, but it's true. She has the courage to stand up for herself, and for others. Challenge people, and their beliefs. I, personally, find myself identifying so much with her character. And I could care less if it's a cartoon. Lisa Rocks!

20. Anything you would like to add?

Not really. I would just like to thank all of the people who make SCS, and the message board run. If it wasn't for SCS I would have been a lost collector, drowning in a sea of scalpers. I literally knew NOTHING before coming to SCS. So THANK YOU!
