Help Needed On Which Simpsons TV Series To Buy!!!

I’ve been reading some Simpsons comics lately, and I was thinking that maybe I’d get a Simpsons DVD with some of my leftover birthday money (£40). I never knew there were over 30 series tho :eek:

Now, maybe the obvious thing to do would be to start with 1 and work my way through the series :roll: , but from a few reviews I’ve read, the first 5 or so series aren’t all that :neutral: . I thought that maybe I’d start with Series 11 or 12?!

Which series do you advise I purchase? Which series was best in your opinion?

Civ Map Finished!!!!!!

I told you a few days ago that I was making a Civ Map. Well, yesterday evening, I finally finished it! No wonder I’d been taking so long with it though; I’d been doing every single tile individually, when I realized you can paint hexagons of 32 tiles onto the map in one click! :roll: … Well, at least I’ll know for next time :lol:

Wisecrack Joke- Stone Gorgon

I’m not saying he was ugly, but if he had a staring competition with a Gorgon, it would be the Gorgon who turned to stone.


I was inspired to write some wisecracks when I started reading a book called Selling Hope. It’s a really great book. I really recommend buying it!

Selling Hope

Can’t Make This Stuff Up!!

My Dad emailed me some pictures of newspaper articles last week. Here’s what they say: They’re hilarious, don’t you think!?

Article 1:

An Army Vehicle Disappears

An Australian army vehicle worth $74,000 has gone missing after being painted with camouflage.

Article 2:

Statistics Show That Teen Pregnancy Drops Off Significantly After Age 25

And my favourite:

Article 3:

Police: Crack Found In Man’s Buttocks

Police searching a downtown home found a man hiding 15 plastic bags of crack cocaine in his buttocks.

Bull On Reserve

A week or so ago, we went to Wolferton. There was a new sign:

Bull On Reserve

I looked around and everyone had red T-Shirts on :D

A Quote by Mark McCormack

I write a diary daily, and enjoy reading the quotes at the bottom of the page (though most of them are over my head :-)).  I think I get this one!?

This is one of my favourite quotes in this year’s diary so far:

“If Thomas Edison had gone to business school, we would all be reading by larger candles”

If anyone else has any quotes they think I might like and understand, please leave them in the comments box :-)
