Is It Heat Stroke Yet?

Bleah. It's hot out where I am, and probably where a lot of you are, too. To those people chilling in the Southern Hemisphere I say...nothing, because it's too freaking hot for expending that kind of energy.

Since there's not a lot going on today for history, anniversaries, silly holidays, or anything else, I figured this would be a good place to talk about summer in Lawndale. Aside from Is It Fall Yet?, we didn't get a whole lot of episodes dealing with summer vacation in Lawndale. The series ended at the beginning of the summer after graduation, and the summer between Daria and Jane's sophomore and junior years was largely untouched.

This phenomenon is known as "The Lost Summer," and a handful of fanfic writers have filled in the gaps. A few people have also theorized that a few episodes (such as "Road Worrier") actually take place during the summer but were out of order in the season.

Well, what do you, the blog readers at home, think? Did Lawndale High skip a summer vacation due to budget cuts? What theory do you prefer, or do you have a new one to share? And what's your favorite Lost Summer fanfic? Talk about anything related to Daria and summer in the comments while I go stick my head in the fridge for awhile.
