Tomorrow, May 12, is a day that I have been dreaming of since girlhood. Daria, my age-14-to-17-or-so life icon, style role model, and imaginary best friend, is having the entirety of her animated series put into one magical DVD collection. My birthday is not until September, but I am always happy to collect early gifts on caliber with these.

My sister and I once went as Daria and Quinn for Halloween. True story. She does a bitchin’ “ You know, the glitter berries! The ones that fill your mouth with beautiful sparkling glitter when you bite into them. Those are the ones that make you act weird. I mean until you spread your shimmering wings and fly away” impression.

Also, how many of you had a crush on Trent, despite the fact that he was a cartoon character and not a real person? I’d like a show of hands.
