Zap!


Today marks the anniversary of the first use of the electric chair in 1890, and Helen and Jake are getting in on the fun. Although it was only in Daria's dream that Ms. Li claimed to have an electric chair with Daria's height specifications, somehow I wouldn't put it past the woman to consider the idea in real life.

On a lighter note, this is also National Root Beer Float Day, so let's all join Jake in enjoying one in a frosty cold mug! Just don't run off and leave your hospitalized daughter alone while you go get it, okay?

Fanfic Update!

It's from "Depth Takes a Holiday," when they get hit by Cupid's love taser.

And that sounds really bizarre now that I've typed it out.
