Pay No Attention to the Educator Behind the Curtain!

Ms. Li, as the Wizard of Oz, commands you all to wish a happy birthday to L. Frank Baum, who was born on this day in 1856. Baum, of course, created the Oz book series that was referenced in several Daria episodes. Ms. Li as the Wizard actually works quite well--lots of bluster and bluffing but little real competence when it comes down to it.

This is also International Day of Families, so celebrate by following the example of the well-adjusted Morgendorffers--er, I mean the Landons--okay, bad idea...the Lanes--oops, no, but how about the Taylors....

You know what? Forget it. I give up.

Fanfic Update!
  • Consequences, by Zetor (part 1): "Daria sat leaning against the side of the storage shed on the school’s roof, staring up at the clouds with a relaxed smile that she would be mortified for anyone but the person beside her to see."

  • Cynic and a Six-String, by fringeperson (part 13): "As soon as Daria opened the front door, she heard the strained tones of Helen talking to Rita on the phone, and winced. 'Damn,' Daria said, and promptly closed the door again."

  • See Jane Date, by EntrancedCat (COMPLETE!): "Jane smoothed down the front of her blue mini skirt and gave her sleeveless red top a couple tugs not really trying to cover her bare tummy. She gathered her thick, raven hair up tight on her head and secured the mass with a wide golden scrunchie, all before smirking at herself in the mirror."

  • Survival of the DoctorDonna, by cfardell_Brenorenz29 (COMPLETE!): "They had left the alternate Darlig Ulv Stranden, and had returned to their home universe. 'I thought we could try the planet Felspoon,' Donna said. 'Just because. What a good name, Felspoon. Apparently, it's got mountains that sway in the breeze. Mountains that move. Can you imagine?'"
