You're Standing on My Neck. La la la.


This weekend, I embraced my new anti social introverted personality and skipped out on all typical festivities with my favorite introverted cynic of all time - Daria!
Daria is my homegirl. I always felt a certain kinship with her. I have often described myself as a cross between Daria and Leslie Knope. And so far, early 2012 is more of a Daria-esque period of life. 

I gifted myself the Daria Box Set for Christmas this year ... So I had the ultimate "outsider" weekend and watched every single minute of it in 3 short days! (including director commentary) Hours and hours of monotone sarcasm, witty observational humor, and classic references of late 90s pop culture.  
Favorite Quote:
"Sometimes your shallowness is so thorough its almost like depth." - Daria to her sister Quinn 
Favorite Pearl of Wisdom:
"My advice is, stand firm for what you believe in...until and unless logic and experience prove you wrong. Remember, when the emperor looks naked, the emperor is naked. The truth and a lie are not sort of the same thing. And there is no aspect, no facet, no moment of life that can't be improved with pizza." - Daria's Graduation Speech
(I swear I could have given that same exact speech in high school AND last week!  Oh- and I may or may not have ordered 2 pizzas this weekend...and only one of them had soy cheese.)

That is correct.  I skipped St. Patrick's Saturday to surround my self with a cozy blanket of sarcasm and pizza slices.  And ... Je ne regrette rien.

  1. Sounds like a good St. Patrick's day! I love Daria, I feel a kindship with her. I dressed like her in high-school, big boots and all.

    I also love Liz Lemon. Also, Brita from Community. They make me laugh, and they're cool.

  2. You are speaking my language!! I sometimes think "Liz Lemon is my future. And if so, that is A-OK!"  I also like Brita...but I love Abed. (P.S. SOOOO Happy Community is back...shame it has to share a time slot with Parks & Rec, but soooo happy!)

    Do you think if I dressed as Daria for Halloween anyone besides us would get it?
