I ask this because last night, I was staying at my cousin's house for dinner. Fortunately for me, my mum saw that my aunt was preparing a lamb roast and told her that I won't eat lamb. I ended up with chicken instead of lamb.
But it got me thinking, why? I eat just about any meat there is, but not lamb. My guess is that when I was younger, I saw the ep 'Lisa the Vegetarian' and the fact that eating lamb was wrong somehow stuck with me.
What about you?

Sometimes I feel like dressing up my Gaia avatar.
Feels kinda pointless since I don't actually do stuff at Gaia, so I'm putting it here.

I'm not sure how or why, but i know that had a lot to do with it.
The very same applies with me.
I think that The Simpsons helped me to get more mature. I started watching it when I was 13 or 14, and I sure started getting another vision of stuff. I remember the first episode I saw seriously was Lisa's Wedding, and that transformed me into a real Lisa fan. I started admiring her character and learnt a lot with it: I even identified myself with her. But overall, The Simpsons gave me a more mature and insightful mind. I gained a very critic view of the stuff that surround me, and even, acquired a cruel sense of humour.

Its influenced me in many ways.. I watched The Simpsons when I should have been working.
Hmmm....influence on my life? Well, there's that portion of my brain that's been given up to remembering nothing but countless quotes, references, scenes and characters. %1) But actual influence? It gave me my obsessive love for wit, satire and spoofs. It helped push my creativity and imagination to a whole new level (like it needed the help ). And, it got me interested in animation and cartooning.

I *could* start talking about the fact that "The Secret War of Lisa Simpson" made me an army nutter, but that's too painful. Suffice it to say, sometimes when I face a challenge and pass it successfully, I even use Lisa's triumphant line: "You said I couldn't, but I could, and I did, and I could do it again, let's do it again!"
