Daria and Star Trek

A long long time ago in a galaxy far far away I used to write Daria fanfiction.  There’s some stuff that I would love to finish some day.  And there’s some stuff that I wonder why I even wrote. (No, I’m not linking to any of that stuff.)

I wrote some cross over stuff with Daria in the Star Trek universe.  I got a chuckle with most of it.  I probably should go over to the Daria Wiki and add it in there.

Some of it was fairly simple (and short) stuff where I made fun of the salt shakers as medical instruments.  And another where I just copy and pasted over the script for Star Trek 3. (OK, I’ll admit it.  Did anyone notice I was poking fun at the second season episode Arts ‘N Crass?  There’s only one line in there to point it out but you should catch it if you pay attention.)

Anyway one of my favorite works was where Jane Lane does the Kobayashi Maru sim from Star Fleet Academy.  I find myself writing Jane to be a bit more humorous than she was in the show.  Some folks liked it.  Some didn’t.

There’s also the one where I replay the first season episode The Invitation but with Quinn and Daria as Klingons.  I also explain how Upchuck got his nickname.

OK, I’m done going on about my past writings.  I should be going home anyway.

edit: And I’m fixing the frigging gallery tomorrow.  I’ve got pictures to upload.

Play a Daily Sudoku Puzzle

sudoku.jpgJust a quick note to mention that I’ve added links to the Daily Sukoku puzzles over on the USAToday puzzle site to my Daily To Do list.  I’ve been playing them for quite a while now and can usually solve them.  They don’t always score them correctly (Todays was a five star pluzzle which usually means it’s the hardest to solve but I found it quite easy.) and it is a source of enjoyment.  (My thrills are cheap and easy.)

Maybe someday I’ll learn how to spell Sukoku correct.  And maybe Firefox will add the word to it’s dictionary. 🙂

If you get stuck like I do on occasion, check out this Sudoku Solver for help. (It’s currently down for some reason.  Hopefully it’ll come back shortly.)

edit: Oh and my sister is giving away my old Star Trek books. 🙁

Daria Iron Chef: Write what you know

Daria slapped her arm and said, “Die, you unclean spawn of Barch.” She lifted her hand to see the mangled remains of a mosquito.

Quinn looked over. “Ewwwww!!!! Daria, how could you?”

“Don’t worry. We can fix him.” Daria pulled out a device and slowly passed it over the dead blob on her arm. After a few moments, Daria paused and looked at the device. “Oh, my mistake. That’s a salt shaker.” She tossed it over her shoulder, pulled out a second device and began passing that over the blob. This device gave off a siren type noise.
