“It’s my dad, lying there on the couch, drinking a beer, staring at the TV. I’ve never seen him like that.” – Bart Simpson
It turns out I have nothing to do this Saturday other than celebrate Mole Day. It also turns out that it’s been five months since I set aside some time for a serious day of drinking and Simpsons watching. That means I can celebrate Mole Day by conducting one of my favorite bio-chemistry experiments: my liver, brain and blood oxygen levels versus my old friend ethanol in another Simpsons-Beer Marathon.
As with the previous two times I’ve done this on-line, I’ll be starting around 8:00am Eastern Time (12:00 GMT) this Saturday. For those who are new to this site, the background details are here. All you really need to know is that I’m going to watch an entire season of The Simpsons while downing one beer per episode, and I’ll post (increasingly inebriated) updates all day.
The poll at right is active, and I’ll watch whichever season you fine individuals select. I’ve already done Seasons 5 and 6, so they aren’t included. For the protection of my good time, Season 7 will not include “Marge Be Not Proud”. Since I’m not giving nearly as much notice this time around, I’ll leave the poll open until Saturday morning.
Update 23 October: And it’s Season 4! Thanks to everyone who voted.
