Happy Birthday, Evolution!

It seems like only yesterday, but it was 150 years ago on the nose that Sir Charles Darwin published his first paper on the theory of evolution. Alas, it did not explain Kevin Thompson. It did lead to anger management classes for gorillas, though.

Today is also the 118th birthday of H. P. Lovecraft, whose works were crossed with Daria in Dervish's "Call of Quinnthulhu." Great story.

Just got home from work, more to come. Or, you know, not.

Speaking of Lovecraft--I also have to bring up Mystik Slacker's wonderful The Journal of Daria Morgendorffer . An old favorite of mine, which VERY nicely captures old Lovecraft's style, in it's own whimsical shewing. :)

Tekeli-li! Tekeli-li!
