Tell a Fairy Tale Day! If you decide to tell your own variation on Cinderella, feel free to borrow Daria and Jane's approach with the Gupty kids ("So Cinderella skipped the ball and asked her fairy Godmother to make her the first woman president.") or try Quinn's style ("Wait! I haven't gotten to the shoes yet!").
Just make sure Daria's home by midnight, because today is also her anniversary. Or rather, it's the anniversary of the episode "Sappy Anniversary," which aired on this day in 2001. Tom and Daria hit some bumps in their relationdateshipthing, Quinn actually tries to help, and Jake dabbles in bleeding edge e-vision. Or something.
