|“||I watched Matlock in a bar the other night. The sound wasn't on, but I think I got the gist of it. - Lionel Hutz||”|
Hey, I'm Gran2, real name Alex. To begin, I am a student from England. Other than that I spend most of my time sitting around here doing not that much. My username comes from the "Gran" race from Star Wars; I originally used it for a Star Wars site years ago and decided to keep it. My contributions tend to be doing anything I can, with about 90% of them on The Simpsons related pages, and I am a principal participant in The Simpsons WikiProject. I do try to profess a "great knowledge" of the subject, as I consider it to be the best television show in history, even if it has now become painfully unfunny and a very pale imitation of its former self; great work there Mike and Al. I have also worked on several film and biography pages. I have been a Wikipedian since March 30, 2006.
My userboxes, and contributions will give you a better idea about me, if of course you care, which you don't...

Free images I have uploaded from Flickr, under the appropriate license. Many of these images have both a full and cropped version uploaded, each by me.
If you can think of a better way for me to display these, then feel free to suggest so on my talk page.
