A to Z Blog Challenge Day #4 D--Daria

Daria. I loved Daria. I first started watching her on Liquid Television, through the small bits through Beavis and Butthead, then I think Beavis and Butthead got their own show, and she had a few more lines as she got more and more popular, so as her popularity grew, people wanted more and more Daria and her spin off began, and it was no wonder, she was the perfect counterpart to Beavis and Butthead and Beavis and Butthead culture which grew as THEIR popularity grew. Her deadpan lines were delivered perfectly to people who had no idea most of the time that they were even being made fun of, against a cast full of nineties sterotypes and tried and true sterotypes that could be plucked out and replaced with characters today that haven’t changed at all. Bottom line though: there aren’t many Darias. Daria worked because only some people laughed at the fact that she didn’t laugh and didn’t smile. That was the point of it all. Not many people got her sense of humor. Smart, sarcastic, snarky. If you’ve ever been asked why you can’t just be nice and smile once in a while, and the difference between there, their and they’re, Daria’s your girl.

So cold

I have never been this cold before, inside and out. It's hard to think, it's hard to process a thought. There's no physical heat...
