It's a Word. Look It Up.

If this is your idea of a joke, Quinn,
perhaps you should look up the word
"huh?" in the dictionary.

Sandi Griffin, "One J at a Time"

Sandi didn't get that retort quite right, but at least she knows about dictionaries. The very first edition of Noah Webster's American Dictionary of the English Language was published 180 years ago today. The title of this post is from a comedy routine by Emo Philips.

The Human Genome Project was completed five years ago today. Daria had something to say about genetics in one of her online essays at

One day left to file income taxes in the United States. Bummer.

In Daria fandom lore, "The Lab Brat" premiered 11 years ago today, and "Of Human Bonding" 8 years ago today. Six years ago, more or less about this time, I joined the fandom and everything went downhill. (Sorry!) Thanks to Kara Wild for being the first to welcome me in! It's all your fault.

Also, as of this moment halfway through the month, there are only two Daria fanfics with the word "April" in the title: "April Is the Cruelest Month" and "April Showers." I thought that was important to mention.

My computer seems to have recovered, more or less, from the rootkit attack. The moral of this story appears to be, "There are some Darias on the Internet whose pictures should not be viewed." And we will leave it at that.

Thanks for the link to "The World Acc. to Daria." This is pure gold...can't wait to read what our sarcastic Super Heroin has to say about this Sick, Sad, World.

"There are some Darias on the Internet whose pictures should not be viewed."

Damn Daria Glower anyway. Rootkits, people, rootkits! Don't look! Your computer will go blind! This is not a joke! The jokes are in another comments file, not this one!

Wow, *six* years? That long? Damn. It just flew by, didn't it?

That means in less than a year, it will be 10 since I joined Daria fandom.

(It's Kara. Too lazy to remember my password.)

Yes, and your DWU anniversary day is coming up, but more on that when the 18th rolls around.
