Good News! That Mountain Doesn't Make You Look Fat!

Tiffany's all suited up for National Mountain Climbing Day, which surprises me a bit. I mean, not only is she attempting actual physical exertion, but she's even dressed more or less appropriately for it! Helmet, gloves, safety gear...not a single high-heeled shoe or slip dress to be seen!

Today is also MTV's 40th birthday, which means the TV channel is definitely too old for its own key demographic. Time to trade out for a younger model!

Fanfic Update!
  • Big In Japan, by WildDogJJ (parts 2 - 4): "Tony sat alone in his hospital bed. Fortunately, his room had a TV. He looked up and watched a news report." (Part 3) (Part 4)

  • Born on the Fourth of July, by Lady Evil (part 12): "'Um, Jesse?' Jane said as Jesse managed to honk his way past another motorist who was using the wrong finger to point at him. 'It’s not like Trent’s having a baby or anything.'"

  • Bravo Zulu - A Lawndale High Story, by benson (part 1): "Colonel Tom Sloan, USMC Retired, stood in his pressed officer's uniform, stared up at the Lawndale High School's front signage in the early dawn of September, and snarled."

  • Daria on the Trail (Daria Landing In Another Fanfiction: An Experiment), by Meester_Lee (part 8): "Mr. Orrick and the other men returned in the early afternoon. Daria and the other women had just a communal potty break when Daria saw someone driving a covered wagon eastward driven by what looked like a familiar team of oxen."

  • Daria's Great Adventure, by dmsfanman (part 40): "Daria opened her eyes as she felt a hand on her shoulder gently shaking her."

  • Daria: Spring Is Icumin, by Meester_Lee (parts 3 and 4): "Well, here goes, thought Amy, pulling out her cell phone. She’d added Helen’s home phone number to her contact list sometime after Helen and her family had come back east from that awful place in Texas but never used it." (Part 4)

  • Doctor Who - Changes in Time and Space, by cfardell_Brenorenz29 (part 3): "It was a normal day at Stargate Command; as normal as a day could get at a US Air Force installation with an interstellar portal device anyway."

  • Getting Out From Under It, by Erin M. (part 1): "Jane watched as the Tank made its way back down the winding dirt road toward Ashfield’s main gate and the highway. As soon as the ancient van turned and was out of sight, she sighed and began making her way back to the cabin."

  • One Big Hippie Family, by Kristen Bealer (COMPLETE!): "Once every bit of old clothing Jake and Helen owned was covered in swirling bright colors, the family moved on to the drum circle. Daria's observation that it was technically a square was ignored by all."

  • Ozark Odyssey (Linn's short stories (or ficlets, drabbles...)), by Linnofthewoods (part 3): "After everyone had finally fallen asleep at almost 3, Trixie the cat had been spending the night sniffing absolutely everything that had been brought into her territory."
