A Good Day to Sell Stuff

Daria and Jane have plenty of supplies ready for Old Stuff Day, but it's hard to say whether they're going to be able to get rid of it. Good luck, girls!

The Fashion Club members, meanwhile, are probably buying new stuff at Cashman's today, and I hope they remember to wish Theresa a happy National Salesperson Day. Not that they're likely to treat her any better today than any other day, but it would be a nice gesture.

Finally, it was on this day twenty years ago that the episode "Quinn the Brain" first aired. This episode is the main source of evidence for those who argue that Daria is at least as physically attractive as Quinn because of the "makeover" scene, although for some reason no one ever seems to make the argument that Quinn is at least as smart as Daria because of her "essay."

Fanfic Update!
  • Accept No Substitute (Quinn, Season 3), by WildDogJJ (COMPLETE!): "The economics teacher, Mr. Keller (Ms. Bennett was fired for her role in Ms. Li's embezzlement), was lecturing the class. Mr. Keller was balding 60 year old with a beer gut." (Part 2) (Part 3)

  • Of Microwaves and Electric Keyboards, by Souless Familliar (part 1): "Jane never thought that a microwave could do so much damage, but here she was, moping the dark roads of Lawndale at one in the morning, all because the microwave had exploded, burning the whole of Casa Lane's downstairs."

  • Sick, Sad World, by writerfromzero (part 1): "About to take the math books from his locker for his next class, Morty was less than surprised to suddenly see his grandfather standing in the school hallway, boasting his usual drunken state, ranting and raving, hardly ever coming to a halt."

  • Sonoma Coma, by jtranser (COMPLETE!): "'Oh Jane. What did I tell you about watching apocalyptic movies? You know it's like crack for the gods. You start watching and before you finish the third bowl of popcorn, a long line of demented liberator wannabes show up at your house, park on your lawn and demand an audition. It's just not worth the risk.'"

  • Unnamed story (Iron Chef - Sticky Situation), by Szcz (COMPLETE!): "INT. Around 2013. A dark room in New York. Two men are lying on the bed. One of them is Charles Ruttheimer, wearing a smoking. Next to him is Daria, wearing a thin roll-neck sweater and black leggings. There is a notebook computer on a stool near Daria's side."

  • Unnamed story (LLH Short Entries : Thread #2), by Roentgen and Brother Grimace (parts 105 - 109): "Annett Zimmer sat miserably on a bench in the lobby of Legion Tower. She was the only person in the lobby, aside from one bored security guard and the each paid the minimal amount of attention to each other." (Part 106 by Brother Grimace) (Part 107 by Roentgen) (Part 108 by Brother Grimace) (Part 109 by Brother Grimace)
