How great was Daria Morgendorffer? I mean, seriously, how amazingly smart, cool, and perceptive was she? She was like the big sister that I never had, giving me a blueprint for sarcasm and self-awareness for my teen and college years. Even at 27, when Daria screencaps inevitably crop up on my Tumblr Dashboard or Twitter conversations turn to who would be best suited to directing a live-action movie (there’s only one correct answer – Edgar Wright), I find that I’m still finding inspiration in her acidic yet astute observations on the absurdity that is growing up.
