To Heck with Everyone!

For reasons unknown, today has been declared to be Hermit Day, which would suit Daria just fine. Her glowering image at right is from "Citizen Butt-head."

Two years ago, today was Wonder Woman Day in Oregon, but apparently that's not happening anymore.

John Glenn went back into space 10 years ago today. Talk about "retirement by rocket." I saw him take off for space BOTH times!

The DC Daria thread on PPMB has great artwork showing Daria cast as superheroes and supervillains.

I am totally disappointed that no one is going to read some Daria-related slash on (top two stories). What's the matter with you people? Why don't you support Our Heroine's best friends? It could change your life. You have only yourselves to blame for missing out.

How are you spending your Hermit Day?

  • Blood, Sweat, and Cheers, by Kristen Bealer (part 12): Did you ever see this huge accident just before it happened, and there was nothing you could do to stop it but you couldn't look away from it anyway? That was cool, wasn't it? Hang on for this one.
  • Daylight: Ashes and Kisses, by Legendeld (COMPLETE!): Whoa, I think the only time that particular pairing came up was in one of the scenes-that-should-not-be threads! Whoa! Anyway, forget that and read the story.
  • Daylight: When the Ball Dropped, by Disco316 (Part 10): “I don’t remember passing by the school.” “Do you remember the crater three blocks back?”
  • Stacy Rowe, Seeker (Part II), by jtranser (continued): Looks like Daria's in some kind of fraternity ritual. Thank God for cobras.

LATE ADD: New Iron Chef up on PPMB: What Did You Do in the War, Mommy?

TAG, remember when our lives were in black and white? And how we used to watch movies on the radio?

Radio? You kids are all alike, everything all fancy-schmancy. When I was a boy, we made movies on the cave wall with hand shadows. And that was WITHOUT a campfire, because we couldn't afford those.

Oh, and there's some really really awesome slash fiction on the Beavis and Butt-head section. Everyone should go read it now. It's the awesomest. You won't regret it.

Black and white? Please. Any old-timer worth anything lived in sepia.

When I was a kid, we couldn't even afford to evolve. And I tried not to be jealous of those kids with opposable thumbs, but I'd find myself picking my knuckles off the ground and trying to get the thumb to go sideways. Talk about frustrating!

Remember trilobites? Those were the days. They'd jump out of the water and try to lay eggs in your head to turn you into a flesh-eating zombie, and you'd have to make an appointment for trepanning. What a bother that was!

I must be getting too obvious or something. No one's falling for the slash trick. Crap.

Try again later.
