Choo-choo-choose this

“This is Lisa Simpson and when I grow up I’m going to marry her!!” What better way to kick off the weekend before Valentine’s Day than proving to the one you love just how big of a geek you really are?

Fantom Comics is celebrating their grand opening with a Simpsons Trivia Contest over the weekend of February 11th and 12th. To enter, visit their site and fill out the entrance form. The Grand Prize Winner stands to take home over $500 worth of merchandise – just don’t try to split it with anyone named Martin or Millhouse. They’re located at the Tenleytown metro stop above the Best Buy and The Container Store.

So here’s a bit of easy trivia for you – what occupied that building before the days of comics, containers, and computers?

    Umm…hate to be a stickler, but “weekend before Valentine’s Day”? Maybe my calendar is messed up…

    The weekend of February 11th and 12th (when the grand opening is taking place) is the weekend before Valentines Day.

    Chris, you’re absolutely right (of course) – I’ll buy you a drink as a prize next time I see you!

    And thanks very much, Joseph, for helping to clarify my meaning for Johnny.
