Jake's worried because he's not sure the nut he's holding is fancy enough for National Cashew Day. After all, cashews "are what the big guys eat...the CEOs!" No point wasting his time with a lowly peanut, right?
Today is also the anniversary of "Her, Uh, Cane" by paperpusher. While it wasn't the first ever Daria fanfic, it is currently the earliest Daria story posted on fanfiction.net, published on this day in 1998.
- Bearing the Summer, by Lady Evil (part 15): "'And then you glue some googly eyes on like so,' Jane demonstrated to the rest of the arts and crafts class. 'And there you have it! Your very own sock puppet! I’m going to name mine Humberto Basilio Federico Venceslás de Salvador y Gutierre.'"
- Mysteries of Lawndale 03: Night of the Coffee House, by cfardell_Brenorenz29 (part 5): "At Jane’s place, Daria had found a working VCR. 'Finally,' she said, as she put the tape in the machine. She turned to Jane who had taken out a large sketchbook. 'Ready?'"
- Unnamed story (The 1002 Deaths of Tom Sloane), by Lady Evil (COMPLETE!): "Tom walked up to the door of his house, wondering why his feet hurt so much. He opened the door and saw his father, looking very cross. Bad day at work?"
