Remember, It's Not What You Put Into the Cookies, It's What You Put INTO the Cookies!

Helen and Rita are a little nervous about National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day, because heaven forbid they attempt the arduous task of stirring some chocolate chips into cookie batter. Daria, depending on her mood, might bake a plate of heart-shaped cookies to creep Kevin out again.

Today is also International Beer Day, and the Keg Queen will be here shortly with the refreshments. Kevin, meanwhile, will be counting down the beers from ninety-nine, although I'm frankly shocked the boy is able to count that high--let alone backwards.

Finally, it was on this day in 1999 that the episode "The Lawndale File" first aired. I don't know about anyone else, but I wouldn't mind seeing a fanfic about what, exactly, Mr. DeMartino went through when he was taken in by those immigration agents. Any ideas?

Fanfic Update!
  • Daria (and other characters) on the Defiant Round Robin, by EntrancedCat (part 56): "Noag, Commander and Owner of the Ferengi casino ship Golden Table, strode alongside Admiral Daria Victoria Morgendorffer. Daria Victoria was leading her landing party of Daria Judith Morgendorffer; Ashley Spinelli; Conan of Cimmeria; Winry Rockbell; Holly Golightly; Number Six and Paste-Pot Pete."

  • Daria of Asgard, by Meester_Lee (parts 4 and 5): "The matron exited the de facto audience-chamber a short time later and walked over to the two girls. She was followed by another gold-armored guard, dressed like the ones who had escorted them into the city and then into the palace." (Part 5)

  • That Summer, by The Central Scrutinizer (parts 15 and 16): "Daria was still asleep at the dining room table when her family came home and jolted her awake. 'Gah-DAMNIT! Helen, it's this damn credit card again! It says I owe them--'" (Part 16)

  • Unnamed story (World's Medium-Sized Crossover), by Roentgen (COMPLETE!): "Sandi, Quinn, and Stacy were busy help decorate for Sandi's party. It would be the last Homecoming party they would ever have together, and they wondered what they would all be doing same time next year."
