He's Typing Almost Five Words Per Minute!

Jake's celebrating Typing Day, although I suspect he leans more toward the "hunt and peck" school of typing than anything else. Still, he knows enough to crash his computer, so props for that.

Today is also Male Watcher's Day, which I suspect Jane will be observing with enthusiasm. Unless she really is just interested in getting a pair of those shoes.

Fanfic Update!

  • Moonstruck, by NightGoblyn (part 12): "Daria stomped down the hallway, turned a corner, and continued full-steam towards the school's front doors. She couldn't believe Jane thought this was some kind of fantasy or joke or, well, whatever it was she thought. Couldn't she see how serious this was?"

  • Not Playing dumb, by Indigo (COMPLETE!): "Daria could not believe her ears, It had started with Jane Lane accusing Daria of causing problems between Jane and her boyfriend, Tom Sloane, and now Jane's brother, Trent, seemed to think that Tom had designs on Daria."
