The main thing you should know about me? I dearly and intimately love The Simpsons. Not just the first ten seasons, not just a few great episodes and not just a couple of characters. I won't be able to fully express how I feel about this beautifully perfect show, probably ever. Things happen in my daily life (and possibly yours as well) constantly where I'm reminded of certain lines or scenes, and I hope that never changes. I can't possibly describe the amount of joy it's brought me. To be honest, even if I could explain how I feel about the show, you just wouldn't understand how deep it goes. (I hear how ridiculous that sounds, but yeah - you really wouldn't get it. I barely understand how strongly I feel about it.)
And I've worried about this day - the one where a major character/irreplaceable actor or actress should pass away in real life. It's been almost 24 years and I figured it had to happen at some point - and I knew I wouldn't be ready. I'm grateful the show is still going strong, but obviously this is a sad time since Marcia Wallace (Edna Krabappel) was an absolute gem.
This was my Halloween costume from 2012 - and while I was going to repost it this week anyway since October 31st is coming up, I definitely felt the need to post it now more than ever. She was such an incredible voice actress and there's no doubt that she'll be greatly missed.
I've read that they're going to retire her character (like they did with Phil Hartman) and that couldn't make me love the show any more.
Goodnight, Edna K.
