Brain working worse than normal, so I'm trying to avoid politics. It, however, is trying to force it's way into our lives more than ever.

Albert Uderzo died, age 92.
He had a good long life, still sad, I grew up with Asterix and Obelix comics.

Unfortunatly in the US I've only really heard of the comic from taking french in high school.  You can find books of it but most probably never heard of it.  Still seems like kinda a cultural keystone in france/europe.

I'm missing two health care appointments today because minor ill feels an one of them is my shrink doctor who I need yo see to have my sickwrit prolonged.

Also one day at home doing nothing that I don't usually do and I'm already bored as fuck. Why, it doesn't make sense

Also, currently even if I became completely well by tomorrow I still have to stay home Friday according to health authority guidelines, which means either way I miss out on the only highlight of my workweek as of these times -- saying hello to the cute Vitamin Well girl who comes to our store (yes I am that pathetic, shut up, her smiles light up my day and I don't be ashamed for looking forward to them ;) ).

Apologies to all who suffer serious consequences because of corona. I feel like I'm just bitching about insignificancies and being an arse for feeling annoyed that I have to be the slightest bit inconvenienced over things guidelines that I need follow to protect others. But still.

Edit: Expect shit post frequency to rise correlatively

Yeah, I mostly heard of them through The Place That Sends You Mad.

Honestly I figure that with this thread you don't have to worry about how your sad compares to other peoples sads.  I feel this thread and the other threads like it are to get things off your chest, or if you are happy about something and just want to tell the world.

Also that gives me a thought, back when I still worked for DG we had a lot of people who pretty much came in to see one particular employee.  A lot of folks figured they were being creepers, but she is genuinely a happy person who is always smiling.  Maybe they just come in to see her always happy smile.

I didn't know asterix and obelix was that popular across the world.

They were pretty much ubiquitous in Australia too. Though I'm not sure whether we owned any at home, they were in the school libraries in every school I went to, along with other European ones in the same form factor such as Tin Tin, and Iznogoud (which is also by Asterix's writer). Looking up the writer RenÚ Goscinny, I do recall the one "Lucky Luke" being available as well.

I think America was the hold-out here due to their size, they became the modern equivalent of isolationist China or Japan. It wasn't all that long ago that cartoon series imported from Japan had their origins actively obfuscated (the infamous "Jelly Donuts", or trying to claim Tokyo is Paris, and the Tokyo Tower is the Eiffel Tower). The irony here  is that modern America is super insular (hopefully getting better post-internet) while modern China actively laps up all the world's culture.
