It's been a while since I did an introduction post. (CW for length)
I'm Julie. The cartoon Roo what goes SQVEAK!
I play a ton of videogames and pinball, and I've had a love of them since the 70s... like, arcades were my happy place when I was growing up, so it's kind of obsession-levels...
I also have an obsessive love of cartoons, and that includes a lot of the really corny ones... old HannaBarbara goofy characters, FleischerStudios rubber-limbed black and white 'toons... love that stuff.
I also love weird. Bizzare. Freaky... but still fun.
I draw as a hobby. Sometimes I draw things for others, but it's not my profession, I don't take commissions, and my output is very linked to my depression, which I have a lot of... so a lot of my doodles come from my emotional high points and hedonistic places.
I ramble a lot about introspection and observation. I talk through my depressions, repressions, and agressions. Sometimes it's theraputic... sometimes it's spirally.
I draw naughty things... cartoony weird things... alt-gender things... inflation things... chompy Pac things... furry things... video game character things... anything I doodle like that is behind content warnings, and unless I'm following you, it won't show up in your timeline.
If that's an issue, I get that, but I'm definitely a weirdo. This is who I am and what I do, so it's what I'm gonna keep doing.
Do you have gender?
It's ok. Many of us either do or did at one time. It's a somewhat common thing, really.
Did you know that you do not need to keep your current gender if it's not working well for you?
You can have more gender... less gender... no gender... all the...
... well, no, you can't have all the gender. I mean, save some gender for others that may want some...
Point is, you get to choose how much and what type(s) of gender you want, and you get to choose how you want to express it.
Yes! You do!! Yes, you!!!
It came to my realization that I'm the senior individual on my shift... again... and things have fully gravitated to me being defacto in charge... again...
... I... don't really mind it... not gonna lie, there are advantages to being the one everyone goes to for those weird reqvests that you need to have years logged into a place to possibly know the answers to...
... but... it also means I lose my isolation... which I also like...
... ah well...

Oh, @zebratron2084 ...
I WANT A REMATCH!!!
I napped, and my guts are still very cross with me, but we've at least hit a truce.
This was not my fault.
Over the last 20 years, I have entirely stopped drinking sugared/corn-syrup soda and have shifted to entirely drinking diet (diabetic partners, though I am still not so), and am now at the point of being unable to stomach the, to me, overly sweet taste of real sodas.
I was struggling to get through the overly sweet taste of the sushi, and had assumed it was the eel and/or mango sauces, and that I had not balanced the plate's tastes... but after all the sushi was packaged up to go ('cause I'm still gonna finish it, just not in one sitting), and we were sitting and working up how to get out of our seats, I tasted my soda... and it was not diet.
I had not noticed during the meal, because mouth-full of sushi tastes.
THEY SLIPPED ME A MICKY!!!
I have called in sick because I did not get any restful sleep... I strained something in my shoulder/neck, yesterday morning, and it makes it impossible to lay down in any position without causing pain.
This is, sadly, a reoccurring problem, but the good thing is that I know it only severely lasts for a day or two.
Today will be intermittent nap attempts!
I love this guy's YT series... and I adored Barney Miller... so here... have some gay TV history!
Beyond food adventures, today's adventures also included going to an open house and looking up other listings to have tours of.
We are both very tired of living in this cramped apartment that they keep jacking the rent up on, every year... worrying about getting a car towed from the lot because it's not in the right space... worrying about water and mold damage... worrying about the laundry dryer-vent fire hazzards... and I'd REALLY like to not be living here, a year from now.
Dang... this is all delicious...
The stand-out winner is a new-to-me roll called an angel hair roll... tempura shrimp, and sliced apples typed with crab, avacado, masago, scallion, tempura flakes, and a spicy mayo eel sauce.
The apples look and feel like crunchy bamboo shoots, and adds a nice new taste!
Sqveaky weirdo roo-thing!
