My Weekend Crush
All this focus on the 12th letter of the alphabet (and more coming tomorrow) got me thinking about other TV shows I’ve slavishly watched in the recent past. There was Buffy, of course, and Sex and the City. My So-Called Life and Wonderfalls (all four aired episodes, thank you box sets). And then, there was Daria. That Daria Morgendorffer. She was smart, dark and snarky before snarky was cool. Plus, did anyone else secretly wish she would hook up with Jane? Daria was the show’s alienated, sarcastic, misanthropic, combat-boot wearing heart. Some called her The Misery Chick, I called her a role model. And, for those keeping score at home, I realize I’ve picked two fictional characters in a row as My Weekend Crush. What can I say, reality is overrated. Happy weekend, all.
