Shine On, Harvest Quinn

The three Js are serenading Quinn for Barbershop Quartet Day, but I don't think it's going to work. Not only are they one singer short for a quartet, but Quinn is really more of a "Boyz R Guyz" kind of girl. Nice try, though, fellas!

They might consider getting her an adorable little animal friend for National Pet Day instead, but then again her experience at the pet store might have soured her on animals as well. They really can't win with that one, can they?

Fanfic Update!

  • Fifteenth Doctor Adventures, by cfardell_Brenorenz29 (part 1): "It was a dreary day. It had been pouring rain since there was enough light to see by that morning."

  • Lie Fishing (The Carbones), by WildDogJJ (COMPLETE!): "We see two identical steel bridges crossing the canal at opposite ends. They are the Bourne Bridge and the Sagamore Bridge. Cut to just west of the Bourne Bridge and we see a railroad bridge across the canal that looks like London's Tower Bridge." (Part 2) (Part 3)

If You're Going Through Buxton Ridge, Keep Going!

Jake's looking quite distinguished (among other things) for Winston Churchill Day, but I wouldn't expect any quotable speeches from him. Unless "Gah, dammit!" is your kind of inspirational phrase.

If Jake wants everyone to call him Winston Churchill now, then today's the right day for it: Name Yourself Day! Dibs on Esmerelda.

Bottled Up

I think Jesse has taken National Beer Day much too far, but I guess he doesn't seem upset about it. I suspect Kevin's going to be celebrating this one, either by smashing cans on his head or singing all the way down from ninety-nine. Anyone else doubtful that he can count to ninety-nine at all, let alone backwards?

Today is also the anniversary for the episodes "This Year's Model" in 1997 and "I Loathe a Parade" in 2000. The Fashion Club got plenty of chances to pose in both, and Daria managed to torpedo their efforts both times. Everyone got to use their strengths!

Fanfic Update!

  • The Creation of Beauty, by Crow Jones (part 3): "Quinn looked in the mirror at the damage her sister did yesterday. Her cheek had completely healed from the initial slap that she had landed, that was good."

It Was One Slice Too Many....

Looks like Daria and Jane overdid it for Deep Dish Pizza Day, but someone should have warned them that deep dish is more filling than regular pizza. Not that that would have stopped them. For those two, "pizza" and "moderation" don't go together.

How About a Party of One?

Daria's really not into World Party Day, but given the kind of people she's with, can you blame her? My favorite parties are smaller affairs, quieter and cozy. It's reading, okay? It's sitting alone at home and reading.

Today is also Find a Rainbow Day, and if you can't find one, just ask Kevin. Apparently he's good at both creating rainbows and knocking down doors.

Fanfic Update!
  • And So The American Experiment Begins, by Lady Evil (part 4): "'Do you seriously call this a maze?' Ms. Barch asked as Brittany put a slice of American cheese on a maze on the back of a box of Cocoa Puffs."

  • I STAY, by O-L-D-D (part 6): "There was only one other time Jane had seen Daria in a bedraggled state and that was during their failed trip to Alternapalooza."

  • Tommy The Terrible (The Carbones), by WildDogJJ (COMPLETE!): "Jim has sinced calmed down and is trying to coax Tommy into literally coming out of the closet."

  • Too Sexy For Her Brain (The Carbones), by WildDogJJ (parts 1 and 2): "The bathroom door opens. Daria emerges with wet hair wearing a bathrobe, indicating that she's just taken a shower. Carrying her sleepwear in a bundle she makes her way down stairs." (Part 2)

  • Unnamed story (World's Shortest Crossover XV: A New Era In Crossovers), by Linnofthewoods (COMPLETE!): "A young Pokemon trainer from Lawndale had finally earned enough gym badges to challenge the gym in his hometown, and with his partner, Hawlucha, he had just made quick work of the last trainer he needed to defeat before finally taking on the leader himself: Trent."

April Fool...and May...and June...and July....

I can't think of anyone more appropriate to play the fool for April Fools' Day than O'Neill, although it would be nice if he could be just a little less clueless on the other 364 days of the year. Just remember: don't believe anything anyone tells you today. Except for that part about not believing things people tell you. You can believe that.

Hey, remember when all of our possessions rose up in revolt against us and overthrew civilization as we knew it? Good times.
