Doesn't Play Well With Others

Daria was interviewed eight years ago today in TV Guide, just before the release of Is It Fall Yet?, and her responses had a few interesting bits in them. "Your life has certainly taken a messy turn, romantically speaking," says the interviewer. "Did you ever dream you'd end up in the role of femme fatale?" Daria answers, "With my sensual good looks and come-hither ways... it was just a matter of time." Nice sarcasm. It doesn't seem she likes kids much from her other answers. (Q: "Do your career goals include working with children?" A: "Well, I don't plan to pursue "trapped in a living hell" as a career, so no.")

What famous things happened in history. . . . Voyager 2 went past Neptune today, 19 years ago. I actually celebrated that at a SF writer's home in the Chicago area. Got the NASA booklet and everything. Cool. Nothing Daria related. Dang.

Legendeld has a new Daria-related post on his blog. Go thou, read and respond to it!
  • Mart of the Dead, by Smileyfax (COMPLETE!): All in all, 10-15 million zombies stood between them and Daria and Jane, if the two girls were actually still alive, which they probably weren't.

  • Yordundal, by Gum Wars (COMPLETE!): The description says, "DARIA and jane are chatting online in a room called 'lawndale 1'. Jane is going by the name 'rdpaint' and DARIA is using 'glses'....but who is......"

Ah, the good ol' Voyager craft. I take comfort in knowing that they'll still be drifting through the cosmos centuries after I'm dust. (I'm weird!)

Totally agreed. Love 'em. (And the two Pioneers out there too.)
