May I Compliment You on Your Peanuts?

Mr. DeMartino doesn't seem to be enjoying National Peanut Butter Day very much, but he should know it could be worse: he could have sat on an antique peanut butter sandwich. If peanuts have hijacked your brain, then go munch a bunch of your nutty friend's lunch!

Today is also Compliment Day, and so we turn to the immortal words of Helen Morgendorffer: "We tell you over and over again that you're wonderful and you just...don't...get it! What's wrong with you?!" Hope your compliments are better than that.

Fanfic Update!

  • Edicius, by elainefr (part 8): "'Sur- prise......?' his enthusiastic greeting fell upon seeing the crestfallen look when she recognized that it was him- her boyfriend- standing before her."

  • The Fine Print (Scenes No Daria fanfic should have: The Saga Goes On), by Sofa King (COMPLETE!): "Kevin Thompson opens his eyes, and looks around. As near as he can tell, he appears to be in a cave... but that can't be right! Bewildered, he holds the back of his head, as he continues to look around. 'Where am I?'"

  • Thank U, by Lady Evil (part 32): "Jane was sitting on the steps of the erstwhile gazebo, reading the instruction manual when Jesse sat next to her. 'Hey.' he said. 'Hey, Jesse.' said Jane. 'Trying to figure out this thing so the turkey will be ready at least before Christmas.'"
