When Jake Met Helen

According to C.E. Forman's "Fireworks," it was 40 years ago today that Jake Morgendorffer met Helen Barksdale at Middleton College. What a wacky couple of kids they were, and look at them now. Some people never change.

As a side note, it was not-sure-how-many-years-ago today, according to the Falling Into College series by Richard Lobinske, that Amy Barksdale tied the knot in the "wedding of the year" with a little help from Brother Grimace. September's just that kind of month, I guess.

LATE ADD: Wouter has drawn Daria as Batman nemesis Harley Quinn. That's Daria, all right. What is she bitching about now? (SFMB)

You're a week late for Amy's seventh anniversary, TAG. ;)

But I'm sure she'll forgive you if you gave her some good, handmade Swiss chocolate as a present.

What date was it?

And does she have a penguins instead of chocolate? Chocolate is fattening. Penguins never are.

Sheesh, you can't even do the math? :)

Okay, it was Sep 8, 2001.

No, no penguins. Amy likes chocolate. There's probably only one person who likes chocolate more.

Speaking of C.E. Forman, the author of Infinite Jest, the book he has Daria lugging around in The Lost Seasons has passed away:
