Things Went Downhill After the Fashion Club Broke Up


Either Sandi is getting surprisingly into America Recycles Day or she's just lost her damn mind entirely. Then again, I suppose there's no reason it can't be both. I'm sure Quinn will be happy to see that she's not the only one who's been caught wearing--or wielding--a Hefty bag!

If you really get the urge to do some cleaning up today, try going through the fridge for Clean Your Refrigerator Day. Look out for that red stuff, though. I have serious doubts that it's cranberry juice.

Schrödinger's Reader


Don't disturb Daria right now, because she's observing Young Readers Day. That's some serious dedication to a holiday, considering she had to go back in time to do it! I'd ask her what the secret of time travel is except she just got to a good part and I can't bear to interrupt her reading. Young, old, or in between, please enjoy a good book today!

Fanfic Update!
  • The Awkward Phase (Scenes No Daria fanfic should have: The Saga Goes On), by Shiva (COMPLETE!): "While their father prattled about a bunch of old film that Mad Dog had shot years ago and saying that a lot of happy memories were coming back to him, his daughters mostly tuned him out in favor of the more recent family video of Daria's third birthday party."

  • Beginnings (Pasta's Never-Ending Ideas Thread 2), by Princess_Pasta (part 1): "There was something almost charming about the small suburb of Lawndale...if you chose to overlook the unstable landfill and utterly boring scenery."

  • Daria Ravenclaw: The Highland Years, by Meester_Lee (part 51): "Daria's suspicions about the new boys proved correct. The three boys banded together and started making trouble for their classmates."

  • Erin Chambers, by OzFerret (part 12): "The impact that woke Erin threw her from the bed. Her first realisation was the approaching floor. Sitting up she gently tested her teeth and nose both of which felt broken. 'Ow! My face' she said."

  • Flight, by Princess_Pasta (part 4): "Dr. Jasmine Mackenzie was a whip smart woman with the patience of a saint. She was good looking for mid-forties, dark-skinned with a cascade of deadlocks that she kept bound by a thick band. Out of all the therapists that Daria had cycled through, she was the toughest nut to crack."

  • When Tony Comes Marching Home (Life After Thirty), by WildDogJJ (part 1): "A young Tony Carbone is at HQ. Tony has a buzz cut and an angry scowl despite the fact that he's at a party. His Ranger batallion is having a Christmas party before going on holiday leave. One of his fellow Rangers, a red haired guy named Dennis, walks up to him."

A Salute to Those Who Served


Today we salute not only George Patton on the anniverary of his birth in 1885, but also all veterans because today is Veteran's Day. I'm not sure if there are any military veterans in Daria, because aside from military school references no character is explicitly stated to have served in combat. Even Mad Dog has no specific mention of being a veteran to my knowledge, although it seems likely and fanon agrees. Mr. DeMartino is a likely candidate, too, and I suppose Buck Conroy might count if you include mercenaries. Anyone I'm missing? Let me know in the comments.

"Mad Mack" Is More Than Just a Nickname!


Mack's concocting something extra special for Inventor's Day, but he's got a long way to go if he wants to beat Andrew Landon's folding coffee cup. Judging by how much of that glowing green stuff he's spilling, I'm not sure he's going to accomplish much of anything useful aside from maybe disfiguring himself horribly.

That might work, too, though, because today is also Chaos Never Dies Day. That holiday seems like it be more well-suited to Kevin, but I'm not going to argue with that face.

Fanfic Update!
  • Cuckoos On Infinite Earths, by Smijey (part 26): "Janice stood at the edge of the sidewalk leading up to the house. It was lived in, but looked kind of dilapidated, and nobody'd bothered to mow the lawn for the past few weeks."

  • Daria Ravenclaw: The Highland Years, by Meester_Lee (part 50): "School started the third week of August, a week after the last day of day camp. Despite Daria's general dislike for exercise and the great outdoors, she found that she missed day camp, at least a little."

  • Daria's Great Adventure, by dmsfanman (part 13): "The tension in the colony was palpable. Everyone was on edge. Commander Ramirez had formed two teams. One would engage the approaching enemy at the opening to their valley. The other would protect the nuclear reactor."

  • Erin Chambers, by OzFerret (part 11): "Were they dating? Erin hummed as she wandered around her apartment, finalising her nightly rituals. Occasionally she danced a few steps. Her weekend had been perfect."

  • Questions of Reality, by cfardell_Brenorenz29 (part 2): "'Good Morning,' Laura Albertson said, as she walked up. Amanda Leigh saw that she continually held her left hand in her short hair as she usually did."

  • Second Chance for Love: Summertime Fun, by David Falkayn (part 30): "'There might be some potential within you after all, Ms. Morgendorffer.' Percival admitted to his sole remaining student, a sarcastic grin on his face, as the pair sat in the now empty classroom."

  • Thank U (formerly The Wrath of Con), by Lady Evil (part 24): "Jane was sitting on a couch Monday morning at the Thatcher duplex. She petted the white rabbit in her lap as Ollie looked through her sketches, occasionally giggling. 'Oh, this is perfect, Jane!' she was saying. 'You've really captured the essence of Lafayette!'"

I Isolate Radioactive Isotopes, Therefore I Am


Quinn's doing her best Marie Curie impression for the anniversary of the physicist's birth on this day in 1867. At least she will until the Fashion Club catches her acting like a brain. I mean, it's not like she has to make that much effort in Ms. Barch's class to get a good science grade. She's got two X chromosomes, so she's good for at least a B no matter what she does.

If she decides to keep a lower profile, she can switch to her "existential" turtleneck outfit in honor of philosopher Albert Camus's birth on this day in 1913. I'm not sure exactly how Camus felt about accessories from the street fair, though.

Bollocks!


Guy Fawkes Day doesn't seem very happy that today's his day, but I suppose if you represented a holiday based on something that didn't happen then I suppose you'd be less than enthusiastic as well. Celebrate with some overused English stereotypes. Pip-pip and cheeri-o!

Fanfic Update!
  • An Annoying Truth (Life After Thirty), by WildDogJJ (COMPLETE!): "Jake has just declared his intention to tell Kevin the truth about Daryl and Brittany. Quinn is now trying to talk him out of it. 'Dad,' she said, 'Think about what you're doing.'"

  • Freakin' Friends Forever, by Princess_Pasta (part 7): "Jane to Daria Are you ready to deck the halls for the ho-ho-holidays? I'm not!"

  • On The Road, by elainefr (part 50): "'Buy me a drink?' Jesse gave a cursory glance at the woman that had come to stand beside him and had to do a double take. He had been drinking- a lot and he had wanted to continue until he forgot everything......that is until now."

  • Powerpuff Girls, by peapotmaster (part 1): "A black haired girl in a green outfit lied on the ground, as she turned to see her town being attacked by one who they and her sisters trusted."

  • Questions of Reality, by cfardell_Brenorenz29 (part 1): "The city of Bellington Vale was quiet, it being just before dawn. However, some events were to occur to disturb the peace. Indeed, a horrific discovery was made in Victoria Park as the sun began to peek above the horizon."

A Book and a Sandwich...What Could Be Better?


Let's not get desperate here. It might be National Sandwich Day, but I'd like to think we can come up with a better option than "antique sandwich Jane just peeled off of Daria's butt." For example, Earl and Barbara just cooked up a new batch of grilled cheese that they'd be happy to--on second thought, let me have another look at that PBJ Jane found.

If, like me, you're having doubts about the whole sandwich thing, then let me invite you to celebrate Book Lovers Day instead. It's well-suited to Daria fans and less likely to give you indigestion.

I Hope They Stocked Up on Antacids!


I think Jake's the only one in the Morgendorffer house that's feeling enthusiastic about Men Make Dinner Day. Everyone else is making sure they still have Pizza King on speed dial.

Personally, they should try being a little braver. After all, today is also the anniversary of the 1871 birth of Stephen Crane, author of The Red Badge of Courage. I don't think Crane would agree with Mr. O'Neill's comparison of the book to the Cowardly Lion, but considering Crane died shortly after The Wizard of Oz was published I suppose he had more important things to worry about.

Fanfic Update!
  • An Annoying Paradise - Daria, by Resop (part 12): "'What?' Daria looks at Enchi-sensei in disbelief. 'Daria, I am afraid that you have outgrown my teaching. There is nothing more I can teach you.'"

  • An Annoying Truth (Life After Thirty), by WildDogJJ (part 2): "Jake and Helen are in the home office visiting Quinn. Jake has just learned that Brittany has been cheating on Kevin with her personal trainer, Daryl. His reaction is pure shock."

  • Break (Iron Chef: Daria the Unreliable Narrator), by Princess_Pasta (COMPLETE!): "Sweltering summer sun filtered in through the windows of The Tank, the cheerful warmth no match for the frost coming from the passenger's seat. Trent guided the van down the stretch of highway, wondering as he had for the past thirty minutes, why Daria had to tag along."

  • Dammit Daria, by SexshiTiTePaNtZ (part 10): "'Don't call me Janey and give it to me straight.' Trent clenched his fork so tight that the pressure flung a bunch of rice in the air. Jane wrinkled her nose when rice stuck to it."

  • Daria/Quinnts - Children of Mt Olympus, by Daria7142 (part 1): "It was the middle of night outside in the quiet community of Elysium Paradise. Most of the residents are preparing to sleep as the moon shine brightly outside. At the Nightrays home, a bright light beam outside a room on the second floor of the building."

  • Flight, by Princess_Pasta (part 3): "Mr. O'Neill's whiny voice was impossible to drown out, no matter how hard Daria tried. She watched as he awkwardly fumbled through papers and wondered how a man so flaky could possibly teach them anything about self-confidence."

  • Freakin' Friends Forever, by Princess_Pasta (part 6): "Jane to Daria My parents are getting a divorce."

  • Pity, by WellTemperedClavier (COMPLETE!): "Jane stood at her window and looked down three stories to where Daria was stepping out onto the wet sidewalk, opening an umbrella as her booted feat set off to the train station."

  • Unnamed story (LLH - Short Entries), by Brother Grimace (part 154): "'You know - it's like a dark cloud has dropped over this Tower of yours.' Wills Warbles stood on the beach just below where Legion Tower stood, and tossed a rock into the dark, surprisingly still waters of Lewis Bay as Julia looked on."

  • Unnamed story (Scenes No Daria fanfic should have: The Saga Goes On), by Silver (COMPLETE!): "The door slammed open. Between the faux tropical decor and scent of fruity mixed drinks, it was exactly the kind of bar one would expect Timothy O'Neil to frequent. It sure as hell wasn't one of the dive bars that appealed to any of the other men with."

  • Winter unsavings, by JPAGC (part 1): "That friday, Daria returned home, after a long day at school and some at the public Library, to find Quinn at the Den, tied up on the phone, sitting down at the Table with a huge quantity of papers in front of her."

Halloween's big day is actually tomorrow, but she's happy to celebrate Mischief Night in the meantime. All she needs is some toilet paper, eggs, and someone who can drive. Oh, and possibly bail money. Just remember that if you decide to take all the toilet paper to TP anyone's house, please leave one roll for Jake. He really didn't appreciate it the last time.

Mmm...Chocolate Fuzzy Wuzzy Wee Bits!


Mrs. Bennett will be right with you, as soon as she's done observing Plush Animal Lover's Day. We can have her attention back once she's appreciated every single Fuzzy Wuzzy Wee Bit in the store, which means we'd really be better off just moving on without her.

Speaking of grown women with unhealthy obsessions, today is also National Chocolate Day and--what? Oh, right, of course I was referring to Mrs. Johanssen. Not myself. Hey, is that unauthorized chocolate over there? Be right back.

Fanfic Update!
  • An Annoying Truth (Life After Thirty), by WildDogJJ (part 1): "A black Lincoln Continental pulls into the driveway. Jake Morgendorffer emerges. At sixty-eight he now looks like he did in the future secene at the end of 'Write Where It Hurts', except that he still has some brown locks among the gray hair. As he approaches the house he has a thought."

  • Barb Wire (Daria and the Gang Thread II), by Roentgen (COMPLETE!): "'So, anyway,' Quinn said. 'I was waiting in line behind Skyler at Starbucks. He got, like, I don't know, a vente, and I got an expresso, and I was - !' ' - wait a minute,' Sandi said. 'What was that you got?'"

  • Daria's Great Adventure, by dmsfanman (part 12): "Commander Ramirez walked into the library and sat down in a chair across from Daria. In an already tired voice she said, 'Daria, as much as I hate to say it you are about to become the first Martian war reporter.'"

  • Erin Chambers, by OzFerret (part 10): "It was Saturday morning and Erin was out at bed early. All of her clothes, even the loathsome skirt, were laid on the bed or hung from every possible hook. Erin nibbled on toast while she combined outfits in her mind."

  • Esteem Loudly (Iron Chef: Lisa Loud or Daria Morgendorffer?), by EntrancedCat (part 1): "I watched Dad's head swivel and bob as he navigated the boat of our massive new SUV through the still unfamiliar streets of Lawndale, MD. I had mixed hopes and desires that he and his passengers were headed in the right direction or that he would give up and we could all go home for another day."

  • Evil Deed Blues, by CaffeineAddict94 (part 4): "No matter how many years passed, stepping foot inside a principal's office still filled her with dread."

  • Flight, by Princess_Pasta (part 2): "Lawndale High was every bit as terrible as Daria predicted. Fifteen minutes into new student orientation and she already wanted to gouge her eyes out."

  • Harry Potter Morgendorffer, by Meester_Lee (part 32): "'This is not what I had in mind for my life,' she said. 'I don't want to be a witch.' 'Sweetie, I love you no matter what you are,' said Helen. She did the only thing she could think of doing, and gave her daughter a hug."

  • Superiors, by ST91 (part 19): "Daria climbed the stairs very quickly ... yet her brain was running faster than her. She was looking for a possible explanation for what happened but she couldn't find one. So she thought of a story that might seem plausible."

  • Unnamed story (LLH Short Entries #2), by Roentgen (part 153): "Tom Sloane waited impatiently for the elevator to take him up to Sandi Griffin's office. He knew he needed to update her on QMS Manufacturing and the newest sticky wicket. Joan had told him that his was something that could be handled but even so - 'when in doubt, elevate'."

Dawn is the Newest Spice Girl, Pumpkin Spice


Although not given a prominent role on the show, Dawn is helping us all to celebrate National Pumpkin Day! In fact, I think she gets more screen time as an alter ego than she ever did as an actual Daria character. Still, serving as a round orange vegetable makes up for it, right?

If pumpkins aren't spooky enough for your Halloween season, then you might prefer to celebrate Frankenstein Friday instead. Just remember two important facts: Frankenstein was the name of the scientist, not the monster; and no one likes a pedant.

The Hero Lawndale Deserves


Jane is dressed in a just-different-enough-to-avoid-a-lawsuit version of the Batman outfit in honor of late comic book writer Bob Kane's birth on this day in 1915. She did say she wanted to be a bat, although she seemed more interested in sleeping upside-down and spreading rabies than in fighting crime. Still, she's finally getting her wish!

Today is also Food Day, so celebrate by eating food if you weren't planning to do that already. If you need some inspiration, this also happens to be National Bologna Day, so help yourself to some questionable meat-like product if you aren't too particular about what goes into your digestive system.

Fanfic Update!
  • Anniversary, by Rémi (COMPLETE!): "Evening. Dr. Calan's appartement. Dr. Calan and Quinn are coming in. Dr. Calan is carrying several bags. Quinn looks approximately six months pregnant."

  • Bobbie Caller, by Meester_Lee (part 5): "Daria didn't see Bobbie again until Monday. She missed home room, although she did hand a permission slip to Mr. De Martino just as the students were leaving for their classes. Daria didn't have a chance to talk with Bobbie until after French class."

  • Dammit Daria, by SexshiTiTePaNtZ (part 10): "'I can't keep my hands off you.' Jane said as she lurched for Daria. The petite brunette lay under her, belly-side-down, like a piece of buttery toast."

  • Erin Chambers, by OzFerret (part 9): "Arriving at work on Monday morning, Erin had not taken her coat off before Anne pounced. 'How did it go?' Anne asked,' Was he dreamy?' Erin smirked. 'Do you mean before the marriage proposal or after? Because they were very different experiences'"

  • Evil Deed Blues, by Princess_Pasta (part 3): "Blinding sunlight filtered in through the gaps in Monique's blinds and roused her from a fitful sleep. Her dreams were plagued by visions of faceless monsters and endless mazes, not the most refreshing way to spend the night."

  • Fates Entwined, by Deep Metal (part 22): "For miles and miles they had traveled, based on nothing more than the printed directions Daria had gotten for the trip back when she was still in Lawndale."

  • Flight, by Princess_Pasta (part 1): "Stacy Rowe was born scared. Okay, that was probably a major exaggeration on her part but, for as long as she could remember, she'd been seized by an overwhelming sense of dread."

  • Hell-oween (Life After Thirty), by WildDogJJ (COMPLETE!): "Quinn and Jim are getting ready for bed. Jim is sitting up in bed and looks really distraught, which Quinn notices. 'Jim, honey, what's wrong?'" (Part 3) (Part 4)

  • The Turn Around, by Silberias (COMPLETE!): "Trent knew he had to take care of his baby sister—no one else in his family was going to do it, and Daria had left for college. Sure, she'd be back, and Janey had taken care of herself just fine before Daria Morgendorffer, but this was something big."

  • Unnamed story (LLH Short Entries #2), by Roentgen (part 152): "Mack drove up to the Bel Air home of producer Nicholas Leppner and award-winning actress Jennifer Collins. The plan was that he would meet Carter's parents and have dinner."

Munch the Nutty Nutty?


I think Daria and Jane should scale back their National Nut Day celebrations a little. They're getting just a tiny bit carried away. Of course, if Trent sees them then his brain really will get hijacked by peanuts.

Then again, it's possible that this is just an LSD-induced hallucination, which would be appropriate because today is the anniversary of Timothy Leary's birth in 1920. I have no idea how many more Learys the Yeagers have gone through by now, but I'm convinced that any amount is too many.

Sandi has once again missed the point when it comes to vampires, as she's clearly impersonating Gary Oldman's Dracula when it's Bela Lugosi's birthday. Oh, well--it could be worse. She could be Edward Cullen.

Of course, as far as Marianne's concerned every day is Boss's Day. I hope one day is Quit This Lousy Job Day for her, because no one deserves that much crap.

  • All's Fair, by Princess_Pasta (part 12): "Casa Lane hadn't changed one bit. With everything else in her life going haywire, it was nice to know that some things stayed consistent.

  • Consequences, by Rémi (parts 1 and 2): "Lawndale High. The three members of the Cooking Club are eating together. Jane (looking at her plate with disgust) : You know, the food from the cafeteria was bad enough before I had good and healthy food to compare it with." (Part 2)

  • Daria's esteemsters, by EntrancedCat (COMPLETE!): "I wasn't really worried about being late for the self-esteem class which the so-called school counselor pseudo-shrink condemned me to until I considered that being late might be considered a sign of low self-esteem and condemn me for a longer sentence in whatever purgatory 'teen self-esteem class' was a euphemism for in Lawndale High's jargon."

The Bald Criminale


I'm not sure if Max is excited because he just became a junior deputy or because it's Be Bald and Free Day. Max is the only bald character on Daria I can think of offhand, but if anyone knows of another then please share in the comments. Of course, just because a character seems to have hair doesn't mean said hair is real....

In tastier news, today is also National Dessert Day. Quinn's whipping up another layer cake for Kevin, while Mrs. Johanssen is going to have (what else?) chocolate. Mack will probably swing by with the ice cream truck later.

Meanwhile, Trent's Still Getting Paid NOT to Grow Crops


Today is Old Farmer's Day, and I think Helen would take exception to the "old" part of that. After all, she's only forty tw--four!

If she does get mad, that's appropriate too because today is also Moment of Frustration Day. Just remember that you only get one moment to be frustrated. After that, just repress your anger like everyone else! Works for Jake, right?

Don't Get Mental This Morning!


The fine people at Quiet Ivy want everyone to know that today is World Mental Health Day, so today would be a good day to have a check-up or get some other mental wellness support. Not at Quiet Ivy, though. That place sucks. I wouldn't recommend talking to Ms. Manson or Mr. O'Neill, either, which leaves you with...I don't know.

THAT'S Not a Guitar Player!


Everyone wish both a happy birthday and a g'day to Crocodile Dundee actor Paul Hogan, who was born on this day in 1939. Jesse actually looks pretty comfortable in this role, which makes you wonder what he's up to when he isn't performing with the Spiral. Anyone want to write that crossover fanfic?

You know, it might make sense for Kevin to be as crazy as the Mad Hatter, but I'm afraid he's only dressed that way because today is Mad Hatter Day. During the other 364 days of the year, he's just dumb.

This is also World Card Making Day, but don't make Stacy's mistake and give your poems away for free!

Finally, because this is National Noodle Day, here's an extra warning not to let the penne a la pesto oxidize. Or let it get dumped on your head, for that matter.

"Yeah." "Cool." "Fore."


Never mind the slim likelihood that Jesse would be an avid golfer, National Golf Lover's Day or not. Let's talk about the complete impossibility that the boy who hates shirts would ever wear an outfit like that. I think I can hear the Fashion Club screaming in terror already.

Today is also the anniversary of Daria's appearance on Drawn Together in 2007, but in Daria fandom we don't talk about that. We just don't.

Fanfic Update!
  • All's Fair, by Princess_Pasta (part 10): "Halloween for Kevin typically meant bloody slasher flicks and gorging himself on candy until he passed out from a sugar coma. This year, he was doing something markedly different."

  • Don't Go Clubbing Without Protection, by Brother Grimace (COMPLETE!): "Sandi looked at the tiny, violet-hued caplet, clear and filled with bronze flecks, that Jodie placed in the palm of her hand. 'And this is safe - right?'"

  • The Great Regression (Life After Thirty), by WildDogJJ (COMPLETE!): "Quinn, Teddy, Daria, Jane and Lindy are on the sidewalk watching a procession. The leader of this procession is a short man with gray hair and glasses. He's the grand marshal of the event."

  • Jim's Secret Shame (Life After Thirty), by WildDogJJ (part 1): "Jim and Quinn are in the living room with Chuck and Stacy. They're relaxing and drinking some wine. On the coffee table is a jar full of small cards and a large stack of index cards. Stacy said 'Thanks for having us over.'"

Does She Do Windows?


Sandi's doing her best for National Custodial Worker Day, but I really don't think that's a practical uniform for the job. In fact, it could be disastrous if Upchuck sees her dressed like that--he'll either refuse to leave her alone or (if we're lucky) faint on the spot.

Who Did Kevin Piss Off This Time?


Daria's off to solve another case in honor of the anniversary of Murder, She Wrote, which first aired on this day in 1984. I don't think Jessica Fletcher ever solved a case quite as convoluted as the one Daria dreamed in the parody episode "Murder, She Snored," but then again, who has?

Fanfic Update!
  • All's Fair, by Princess_Pasta (part 9): "No amount of pleading to the gods could stop Saturday from arriving. Daria spent her day doing what she did best: avoiding all human contact. Too bad that couldn't last forever."

  • A Creep By Any Other Name (Scenes No Daria fanfic should have: The Saga Goes On), by Smijey (COMPLETE!): "Then: Daria's phone rang again. Checking the caller ID, she sighed and answered it. 'I told you to stop calling me, you creep.'"

  • Erin Chambers, by OzFerret (part 7): "Erin liked attending conferences. They were indoor, they were warm and the good ones were catered. The downside was she had next to nothing to do and they were boring."

  • The Great Regression (Life After Thirty), by WildDogJJ (parts 1 and 2): "The house is a fairly decent white sided two story. Inside is a visibly pregnant Lindy. Lindy is now married to Jim's older brother, Chris, and they are expecting their first child. A visibly excited Chris enters the room." (Part 2)

  • Jay Lane Chapter 1, by ST91 (COMPLETE!): "Jay slowly enjoyed the taste of the cold beer. It went perfectly with the salty of the fries and with the greasy of the hamburger he had eaten before. Of course helping the band to load and unload the stuff from the van was tiring but it was worth it."

  • Second Chance for Love, by David Falkayn (part 27): "'Thanks for switching weekends with me, Christie.' Elizaveta said to her fellow employee at the bookstore as she was refreshing the shelves in the young adults section. 'My anya's niece is getting married this weekend.'"

  • Unnamed story (LLH Short Entries #2), by Roentgen (part 150): "It's a real waste of time to visit Lawndale, Maryland. Lawndale wasn't known for much of anything until Revelation Day and now it's known for the teenage DPIs that make up National Legion Chapter One."

  • Unnamed story (World's Shortest Crossover XV: A New Era In Crossovers), by Charles RB (COMPLETE!): "'Which one is yours?' 'Oh, that's my kiddos over there--' The man pointed as two girls, one whose every facet screamed Popular and the other who screamed Freaks & Geeks - entered the high school."

Beer? Cool.


I think Jesse has (once again) gotten confused. See, today is Drink Beer Day, but Jesse has clearly allowed the beer to drink him. I feel like that's some kind of metaphor, but that might just be the beer talking.

Once you've celebrated Drink Beer Day enough, you'll be all ready for Ask a Stupid Question Day! Luckily for Kevin and Brittany, they can easily observe this one without the aid of alcohol. Mr. DeMartino might want some, though.

An Apple a Day Keeps the QB Away!


Kevin's doing his part for Johnny Appleseed Day, although it's possible that he's just trying to find a good replacement for the Tommy Sherman Memorial Tree/Crutch. I am deeply skeptical of Kevin's farming skills, but whatever keeps him happy and occupied is fine with me.

Fanfic Update!
  • All's Fair, by Princess_Pasta (parts 7 and 8): "Daria really should've known that a simple trip to the convenience store would not go easily. She managed to wrangle up a four pack of toilet paper for her dad but she'd barely made it out of the store before she was confronted by the masses." (Part 8)

  • Aunt Daria (Scenes No Daria fanfic should have: The Saga Goes On), by Szcz (part 2): "'Which year is this cool guy at?' 'Quinn, it is a teacher. Too '60 clothes. Also he's not rich.'"

  • Bad Influence (Life After Thirty), by WildDogJJ (COMPLETE!): "Quinn and Jim have sat Tommy down in the living room for a very stern lecture. Quinn said 'Cussing out your teacher!!! What the hell!?!' Tommy said 'But Shane told me I was cool.'" (Part 3)

  • Coffee, by Zetor (COMPLETE!): "The remainder of the movie played out quicker than Daria would have preferred. As the credits rolled across the screen, Stacy sat up and stretched, letting out a long yawn. 'Excuse me,' she said, the last of the yawn working its way into her voice."

  • Daria Ravenclaw: The Highland Years, by Meester_Lee (parts 46 - 49): "The Morgendorffers returned to the motel and ate a late breakfast. Afterwards. They went back to their rooms, Helen enjoining her daughters to look around and make sure they didn't leave anything behind, and then loaded their luggage. They then checked out, strapped Veronica into her booster seat, then set off for the road that would take them to Virginia." (Part 47) (Part 48) (Part 49)

  • Tales from the Crypt: Who was Texting Me?, by xXSlasherXx (part 1): "Football practice must've been running long, because Kevin had never been this late to pick her up on date night. It was a Friday night and Kevin was two hours late. Brittany was positively livid."

  • The Temptation of Tom Sloane, by Rémi (COMPLETE!): "Cedars of Lawndale Mental Health Unit. Quinn is entering the visitation room. Daria is there waiting for her, sitting on a sofa. She is still wearing her straightjacket and has a vacant look on her face."

Muppets and that...that...Grunge!


Daria's only freaking us all out because she's celebrating the anniversary of Muppet creator Jim Henson's birth on this day in 1936. For extra Muppet fun, read Erin M's "The Muppet Show: Cynicism & Violence" and Mike Xeno's "D is for Daria."

Today is also the anniverary of Nirvana's Nevermind, released on this day in 1991. Without Nirvana, there would be no Mystik Spiral, and without Mystik Spiral there would be no "Icebox Woman." Wait, what was my point?

This Could Get Ugly. Even Uglier than a Misshapen Pile of Wax!


Helen and Linda are having a friendly phone conversation to wish each other a happy American Business Women's Day. Or at least it was friendly for the first few seconds. By now I'm sure it's devolved into a vicious argument over who's more successful in their field and whose daughter is more popular. The swearing and screaming will begin any moment.

If she needs any help calming down, Helen should go find that hobbit Jake gave her years ago. Not only is it very soothing, but today is also Hobbit Day and therefore very appropriate. We are sure that it's really a hobbit?

Fanfic Update!
  • All's Fair, by Princess_Pasta (part 6): "One week quickly bled into three. Daria wasn't expecting someone like Brittany to have much resolve so it was a good thing that she hadn't killed Kevin yet."

  • Aunt Daria (Scenes No Daria fanfic should have: The Saga Goes On), by Szcz (part 1): "'The parents had a boy, named uncle Fedor. He was very serious and independent. He had learned how to read 4 years old. 6 years old, he boilded soup by himself. On the whole, he was a good boy. The parents were good too.'"

  • Bad Influence (Life After Thirty), by WildDogJJ (part 1): "Mrs. Henderson is teaching her first grade class. The students include Tommy, Timmy and Teddy Carbone along with Quinn Ruttheimer, Kevin Thompson Junior and Shane Sloan along with his two lackeys, Al and Lou. Mrs. Henderson is a dark haired woman in her thirties with thick rimmed glasses. She's drawing a math problem on the black board."

  • Erin Chambers, by OzFerret (part 6): "Erin walked over to Anne's desk. 'Have you been to lunch yet Anne?' 'Just a Moment', Anne replied as she typed rapidly on her computer. 'Chew on that, you electronic monster.' she instructed her computer."

  • Fates Entwined, by Deep Metal (part 21): "'Daria, are you doing alright?' Tom asked. He and Kevin stood over her. All of them were in the nurse's office, or at least what remained of the nurse's office as half the room appeared to have been destroyed."

  • Second Chance for Love, by David Falkayn (parts 25 and 26): "'I guess our pariah status still hasn't been completely revoked.' Daria deadpanned as she and Jane stopped off at their lockers." (Part 26)

  • The Temptation of Tom Sloane, by Rémi (parts 3 - 6): "Griffin household. The Fashion Club is having a meeting. Sandi is giving instructions while Stacy conscientiously takes notes. Tiffany , with vacant eyes, is looking at herself in a pocket mirror. Quinn is trying to pay attention to Sandi and to read one of her textbooks at the same time. Sandi notices this." (Part 4) (Part 5) (Part 6)

  • Touched by Mars, by WellTemperedClavier (part 1): "The shadows of Nowruz flames danced on the curved metal wall. Or they appeared to, at least. It was the memory of holy fires, copied from the fire-capped temples of Ecbatana, and replicated in hologram. A real fire had no place on a space station, even one as large as Constitutio VII."

  • What Road Trip?, by Brother Grimace (COMPLETE!): "'Okay - what are you three up to?' Esra, Rossalyn and Hector - an unusual gathering by anyone's measure, Daria thought - looked up from the table they sat around as Daria walked into the Legion Academy's 'holochamber'."

A Tennis Game to Remember


Daria is recreating--if halfheartedly--the end of the famous "Battle of the Sexes" tennis match between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs on this day forty-five years ago. Daria, you're going to have to up your game if you want to make Ms. Barch proud!

If that's not enough motivation, then perhaps we could promise to take her to Pizza Prince to celebrate National Pepperoni Pizza Day if she wins. Extra quart of grease and all.

Add a Movie and a Back Seat for Extra Fun!


Daria hasn't yet decided if she's going to eat the burger or stick it in her boots and enjoy the squishy feeling around her toes, but either way she'll be celebrating National Cheeseburger Day. You can celebrate, too, if you'd like to "Burger! Get! Get burger!" I just don't recommend taking any of Skip's burgers--he's apparently got a whole system and the last thing you want to do it mess it up.

Fanfic Update!
  • All's Fair, by Princess_Pasta (part 5): "Daria seemed to blink her eyes and it was time for school again. She had already been waiting outside for several minutes by the time Kevin pulled up to the house."

  • Child Disservices (Life After Thirty), by WildDogJJ (COMPLETE!): "The outside of the house looks no different from when we last saw it eight years ago. The only thing that's different is the cars in the driveway." (Part 2) (Part 3)

  • Death of a Secret, by Caesar Augustus Plutarch (part 1): "Daria sat in her car watching her father through the restaurant's large plate glass window. Even with the painted lettering obscuring part of her vision she could clearly see him embrace a young woman."

  • Erin Chambers, by OzFerret (part 5b): "Erin arrived at Boston Products at her usual time so she was surprised to see Mr Stojoski already in his office. Going to his door she saw her flustered boss racing back and forward from desk to book shelf and back again."

  • Second Chance for Love, by David Falkayn (parts 23 and 24): "'I heard about your video project for Mr. O'Neill's class.' Ms. Defoe said as she lunched with two of her favorite dancers, Elizaveta and Angie. 'Timothy described as a "slice of Americana."' She laughed." (Part 24)

  • Superiors, by ST91 (part 18): "Crap! Crap! Crap! Joey thought angrily as he run to the bathroom. He had hoped to stay clean while helping his father but it didn't happen. Now he and his clothes were soiled with oil and grease."

  • The Temptation of Tom Sloane, by Rémi (parts 1 and 2): "Lawndale High. Mr. O'Neill's class. The bell is ringing. The students get ready to leave. The three J's approach Quinn has she's putting her notebook in her bag." (Part 2)

  • The Wrath of Con, by Lady Evil (part 22): "'So,' Jane asked, standing in the living room before Trent in her Pilgrim girl costume. 'How do I look?' 'Like you're about to burn someone for witchcraft.' said Trent."

"Like David Coppertone!"


Kevin's got a few tricks up his sleeve on David Copperfield's birthday, but it's Ruttheimer the Prestidigitator who owes his act to the famous stage magician. If nothing else, Kevin is very good at making Mr. DeMartino's good mood vanish in an instant.

Today is also both Working Parents Day and National Guacamole Day, so I hope Helen and Jake don't work too hard or else they might miss the guacamole. Then again, considering what happened the last time the Morgendorffers had guacamole, that might be for the best.

Donuts and Angst...a Great Combination!


If you've got the time and the sweet tooth, better swing by Do Me a Donut for National Cream-Filled Donut Day. Unless you prefer twisted little crullers, that is.

Today is also the anniversary of something that happened in Angelinhel's fanfic 9.14.04, but I'm not going to spoil it by telling you what it is if you haven't read it yet.

Fanfic Update!
  • All's Fair, by Princess_Pasta (part 4): "'Doug Thompson, 18, captain and quarterback of the Lawndale Lions, made history today as he secured the team's first championship title' It was an old newspaper article, faded from time, which Kevin now kept tacked to his bedroom wall."

  • Coffee, by Zetor (part 2j): "'Great,' Stacy said, a bright smile lighting up her face. Looking down at Daria's plate, she asked, 'Are you ready for dessert?'"

  • Iron Chef: Truth or Dare, by Princess_Pasta and JPAGC (parts 3 and 4): "Kevin was no wimp and so there was really only one choice. 'Dare'." (Part 4)

  • Is It Over Yet? (Quinn, Season 5), by WildDogJJ (part 3): "Quinn, Stacy and Lindy are there to bail their guys out. As they approach the station they see Jim, Chuck, Chris, Mack, Kevin and Tony emerge from the station. They are surprised. Quinn said "Jim, we just came to bail you guys out."

  • Jay Lane, by ST91 (part 7): "When Trent Lane woke up he felt confused. He had no alarms in his room and rarely wore the wristwatch. I guess it's afternoon. Trent thought, looking out the window."

  • Superiors, by ST91 (parts 16 and 17): "'Let's go inside, hurry!' Daria said. 'Upstairs! In mom's room!' She added immediately. Still shaken by the situation, Quinn did what her sister said." (Part 17)

  • The Truth Seeker, by Rémi (COMPLETE!): "Visitation room. Quinn is coming in. She finds Daria sitting on a chair, wearing her usual straightjacket. This time, though, she isn't strapped to the chair. However, she is staring blankly at the ground and doesn't react to Quinn entering." (Part 15)

  • Unnamed story (LLH Short Entries #2), by Roentgen (part 149): "Jodie Landon jumped out of bed. She was 11 minutes before the alarm went off and once her eyes opened, she jumped out of bed. Even though she could not tell time exactly, she could estimate a time based on biofeedback - her body tempature, intensity of previous REM cycle, blood pressure (she was very good at guessing it and her blood pressure was usually very stable)."

  • Unnamed story (Scenes No Daria fanfic should have: The Saga Goes On), by Silver (COMPLETE!): "The Tank careened wildly around the corner, briefly coming up on two wheels before slamming back down."

  • The Weather On Planet Quinn, by kinkfloyd (COMPLETE!): "'Quinn,' my mother interrupts my phone conversation, 'will you go ask your sister to come down for a minute?' She's too busy to even look up from her mess of papers as she speaks to me."

Go, Daria! Play that Game!


Daria's taking time out from her busy writing schedule to play a little Cannibal Fragfest, but if she really wanted to celebrate National Video Games Day she'd join Ted at the VR arcade. Whether your game of choice is Pong or Grand Theft Auto, feel free to pwn some n00bs or whatever the kids are calling it these days.

Today is also one of Mr. O'Neill's favorite holidays, National Day of Encouragement. Hey, just because he sucks at it doesn't mean he doesn't enjoy it.

Woof!


Happy 100th birthday to Rin Tin Tin, whose cartoon doppelganger Leary is pictured at right. Of course, like the original Leary, both dogs are now long gone, but were replaced multiple times. Yikes, that went dark fast.

Speaking of depressing, since today is TV Dinner Day you might consider eating one yourself. Jane would, except that she's saving it for Thanksgiving.

Fanfic Update!
  • All's Fair, by Princess_Pasta (parts 2 and 3): "Brittany always broke up with him first, never vice versa. Most of the time, it was for the same reasons: he'd forgotten their anniversary, he'd missed her phone calls, he'd looked at some girl for too long. In short, he was his usual oblivious self. This time, however, it was because she couldn't 'deal with him' anymore." (Part 3)

  • Daria's Great Adventure, by dmsfanman (part 10): "Daria sat in the library watching the feeds from the two rescuers sent out to what she though of as 'the mysterious craft from outer space.'"

  • Erin Chambers, by OzFerret (part 5): "In Erin's opinion it was ridiculously early as she parked her car in front of Michelle's house. She checked the address again and wondered how Michelle owned a house in the outer suburbs of Boston."

  • First Day on Campus, by bored engineer (COMPLETE!): "After spending several hours of her life waiting in a line in an unconditioned college bookstore, Daria's nominally limited patience has waned."

  • Harry Potter Morgendorffer, by Meester_Lee (part 28): "Helen and HJ got a surprise when they stepped outside their hotel the next morning. It was cold and windy. 'We'd better dress warmly,' said Helen. 'It's likely to be chilly where we're going.'"

  • Is It Over Yet?, Part II, by WildDogJJ (part 1): "Quinn, Jim and his brother, Chris are at the kitchen table having dinner. Tony, Jim and Chris' father, is with them because he just showed up and forced Jim to let him in. Tense doesn't even begin to describe how Jim and Chris are feeling. Tony immediately spits out his food."

  • Jay Lane, by ST91 (parts 4 - 6): "'Didn't I tell you to stay away from her?' Mack asked rhetorically. The cold rage clear in his voice. 'Come on Mack don't make a scene, we were just talking.'"

  • The Legion vs. Doctor Diabolical!, by Captain Marbles (COMPLETE!): "It was a hot sunny day, and Legionnaires Sandi, Quinn, Stacy, Jodie, Julia, Daria, and Karen were enjoying a quiet day hanging out at the park. All of them were dressed casually in shorts and t-shirts and sandals since none of them were expecting anything out of the ordinary."

  • Second Chance for Love, by David Falkayn (part 22): "Pinning her daughter's essay to the refrigerator door, Helen cried out triumphantly, 'There it is for all to see!' 'The Door of Honor.' Daria quipped sarcastically."

  • The Truth Seeker, by Rémi (part 12): "Dr. Calan's office. Dr. Calan is listening to Quinn with sympathy as she's pouring her heart out. Tears are escaping Quinn's eyes as she talks."

  • Unnamed story (Iron Chef: Lawndale High School Gossip Thread), by Shiva (COMPLETE!): "SONIA: Like oh my gawd! Did you hear what happened? MELISSA: What Soni? SONIA: You know that one girl, Brooke?"

  • Unnamed story (LLH Short Entries #2), by Roentgen (part 148): "'And like,' Stacy said, 'the guy comes up to me with his eyes wide open and he says, incredulously, "you know who Reno Nevada is?" As if I was some kind of bimbo. And my thought was like, "Dude - there are like eleven movies, all of the novelizations, the freaking car-TOON! There are yak herders in Mongolia who know who Reno Nevada is!"'"

There He Is....


I see Joey is surprisingly happy to be the latest contestant crowned Miss America, long after the very first pageant happened on this day in 1921. I suppose it makes sense--unlike "Daria," "Joey" is already spelled with a Y and therefore he was a shoe-in. Congratulations, Joey!

Today was also the day of the Starry Night Ball, according to Is It Fall Yet?. Tickets are still available for $5,000 a table if you'd like to--oh, you already have plans? Okay then.
