Double Oh Mack Daddy!

Today is probably a major holiday to Upchuck: the anniversary of Ian Fleming's birth in 1908. Fleming was the author who created the character of James Bond, whom Upchuck frequently tries (and fails) to emulate. Mack seems like a more suitable candidate, although I wouldn't want to be Kevin if Mack ever gets that license to kill.

It was also on this day in 2001 that the episode "Life in the Past Lane" first aired. We got to meet Nathan, although he turned out to be a jerk (poor Jane doesn't have the best track record, does she?). On the bright side, we also got to witness Stacy's Epic Win against Sandi.

  • Tom Sloane, Lax Bro, by Shiva (part 5): "Ok, so the school day sucked worse than usual, the profs seemed attuned to the fact that an awesome BRO-tastic weekend awaited me and my bros, so they saddled us with enough work and ugly glares/words/etc to make even Fugly Daria blanch."

  • Unnamed story (The 1001 Humiliations of Quinn Morgendorffer), by Shiva (COMPLETE!): "The last few weeks had been so wonderful, Quinn had gotten her Hogwarts letter from a beautiful snow white owl and had been introduced to the world of Magic by Professor Sprout.
