Here's Your Week!

A curious twist of fate has made the weekly planners of each of the Morgendorffers unusually accurate this year. Today is October 19th, a Sunday, and that's exactly when the planners shown in The Daria Diaries begin. Richard Lobinske has some comments on this in his chronology essay here, pointing out that the year 1997 also matched these dates. Click on the pic to get the larger (more readable) view.

Curiously, Daria talks about reserving her place at a "Bigfoot convention" on Monday, and it was today 41 years ago when a movie was allegedly taken of a Bigfoot. The film has since proven to be a hoax, but it was fun while it lasted. Say, why hasn't more been done with the Bigfoot idea here? (Nudge, nudge.)

Trey Parker, one of the creators of South Park, turns 39 today.

The list of 2008 visual fanworks has been updated. (SFMB here.) Thank you, Richard Lobinske!

Newest DariaWiki page: Wyatt.

  • Babysitting, by Legendeld (Part 3): “No!” Quinn almost laughed. “I can safely say that Sandi is not gay.”
  • Daria: College Pains, by James the Lesser (Part 12): NEW ADDITION! At first Daria told herself it was just a one time thing, but she liked how she felt when high. [This saga began in November 2006 and has just been updated. Read and review!]
  • Daylight: Ashes and Kisses, by legendeld (Part 5): A survivor finds his way to the colony—but can he be trusted?
  • Daylight: When Worlds Divide, by Lorenzo Sauchelli (Part 2): The auburn-haired girl pointed at the yellow sky. "See that? That means it's the end of the world as we know it. Our house isn't safe anymore. Whatever killed Mom and Dad is the least of our problems right now."
  • Dealing with the Real World, by magnuskrauss (Intermission): This is getting very creepy (in a good way).
  • End of the Line, by Legendeld (Parts 8 and 9): “So, how did we do?” “Great. You took out ten highly trained DELPHI SABRE troops and four metahumans in less than... six minutes.” “Do we get a cookie?”
  • Origins of the Ringbearers: Let Vengeance Ring, by Richard Lobinske (Parts 10 and 11): Daria said, "You look nervous." "Gee," Jane said, "we're about to head off, just the two of us, to stop one of the biggest badasses in the Multiverse and if we succeed, I have to try to fool his evil minions while you go off and do some twisty-turny time games so that he doesn't exist. Can't imagine why I might be nervous."

There goes my "Origins of Mad Dog" story.

That wacky Helen! (Wink, wink, say no more!)

Um, I meant of course it was wacky of her to sort of mess around with the son of Bigfoot, though it would have come out better if I had said, "That wacky Ruth" but now it's too late to change my post and this is so embarrassing you have no idea.
