    i've just been reading this thread & i've gotta say, i think it's way cool that the muppets are so timeless that people from their teens to their 40s who have such diverse non-muppet interests all have fun here.

    about moi...i'm a graduate student in history, studying european empires in the seventeenth century. they've beaten academic writing into me so thoroughly that i've noticed even my posts are long-winded, exhibit overanalysis of small details, and often have passable grammar. sigh. i'd be wound *way* too tightly if it weren't for the muppets! (but my advisor is cool--he's from spain and is a lot like :rolleyes: okay.)

    i've always appreciated SS's music & humor, but i only became *OBSESSED* with it in february, due in part to academic burnout (i've been in school since 1989! get me out!), plus a bad cold that had me in bed for a few days. 'cause i always watched ss when i was sick in bed. but now i don't have a tv, so that's when i discovered classic clips on youtube and then discovered the mc forum, and now i'm a total junkie. :attitude: *sam glares at me for procrastinating on mc instead of grading my students' essays* but sam, i have fun here! :attitude: ok ok...i'll get back to work...

    Wow! That means you have been in school as long as The Simpsons have been on the air...:wisdom: :search: :p

    wow. guess so...and school jumped the shark in the late 90s, too... as marge said: "don't make fun of graduate students, bart, they just made a bad life choice"

    now that i think about it...i watched sesame street, then i went to school for 19 years (so far), and now i'm back to sesame street which teaches all the most important things anyway :wisdom:

    Wow! that is a long time to be in school! I was only there for at least seventeen and still have some years to go to finish... :wisdom:

    That could not be more true!

    That's exactly what I like and the book Street Gang! It's that evrything always wrote itself out in the end despite Everything. And at the and of the book, despite all Jim's worries, that is precisely what happened.

    Ilikemuppets New Member

    Well actually it just sort of fell into place by chance. Jim never really lived long enough to see it happen or to react or respond to it. You have to read the book to see... But I know what you mean.

    It just goes to show when something is truly good, it stays, the world needs it:excited:. Because if there was nothing to stand for the bright side of things the world would lose sight of what the good side of human nature can really be:sympathy:.

    My Story...mmm..gather around children this is my west side story

    I feel pretty
    Oh so pretty
    I feel pretty and witty and bright,
    And I pitty any dude who isn't me tonight.

    I feel charming
    Oh so charming
    It's alarming how charming I feel
    And so pretty that I hardly can believe I'm real.

    See the pretty face in that mirror there
    Who can that attractive dude be?
    Such a pretty face
    Such a pretty jean jacket
    Such a pretty smile
    Such a pretty me!

    I feel stunning
    And entrancing
    Feel like running and dancing for joy
    For I'm loved by a pretty wonderful WOMAN!

    Have you met my good friend Maria
    The craziest girl on the block?
    You'll know her the minute you see her
    She's the one who is in an advanced state of shock

    She thinks she's in love
    She thinks she's in Spain
    She isn't in love
    She's merely insane

    It must be the heat
    Or some rare disease
    Or too much to eat
    Or maybe it's fleas

    Keep away from her
    Send for Chino
    This is not the Maria we know

    Honest and pure
    Polite and refined
    Well-bred and mature
    and out of her mind!

    I feel pretty
    Oh so pretty
    That the city should give me its key
    A committee should be organized to honor me (la la la la la la la la la la)

    I feel dizzy
    I feel sunny
    I feel fizzy and funny and fine
    And so pretty, Miss America can just resign. (la la la la la la la la la la la la)

    See the pretty dude in that mirror there (What mirror where?)
    Who can that attractive dude be? (Which? What? Where? Whom?)
    Such a pretty face
    Such a pretty jean jacket
    Such a pretty smile
    Such a pretty me!

    I feel stunning (I feel stunning)
    And entrancing (and entrancing)
    Feel like running and dancing for joy (feel like running and dancing for joy)
    For I'm loved by a pretty wonderful WOMAN!

    Would you believe I am hooked on phonics :halo:

    I've been looking at the website and the forum for quite a while, but didn't visit as often as I do now. I decided to join last year to finally get a chance to join in and talk to other Muppet fans.
    Age: 19 as of January 28th
    Hobbies: Reading, singing and dancing
    Future career: As a veterinary technician, hence my user name.
    Favs: Animals, mostly dogs, Muppets, The Beatles
    I've been a Muppet fan since I was little and always will be and I hope to teach my children about the messages the Muppets and Jim Henson teach through the characters in the future.
