Who thinks everyday life must be dull and boring? Jessica Rae, who makes these hilarious "Doodley Squat" comics about the good old mundane life, certainly doesn't. Slice-of-life doodles may not sound like much, but hey, they're called "doodley squat" for a reason! (diddly squat means "a very small amount")

The comics speak for themselves. They involve cats (!), relatable day-to-day struggles, girl/relationship/parenthood problems, and so on. Needless to say, they're funny no matter the particular theme. But the comics don't just speak for themselves. The Australian Jess Rae also had a little bit to add of her own!

Add a headache, and being beyond tired and yeah, that's a pretty good representation.

The author enthusiastically shared with Bored Panda how her comic came about and how she's been doing lately. "I started making comics about 10 years ago. My Facebook feed was pretty text-heavy and I was getting bored with it so I downloaded a kids' drawing app and thought I’d start drawing the things that happened in my daily life instead. I first drew a spider that crawled on my arm while I was watching TV and while the drawing was awful, my friends got a laugh out of it so I kept doing them and eventually started making panel comics.

Cats often go to the person in the room who ignores them, because in cat language not looking at each other means respect! So thats why the cat hater gets the cat after him

Her opinions about her own comic are as sincere and light-hearted as the comic itself. "There’s not really anything I’m trying to say, I guess I just want people to be able to get a laugh out of them. I don’t really like arguing with people so I try not to make anything political or controversial."

It's very natural for an author to like some of their works more than others. Her favorite ones "are definitely the ones based on random thoughts that I sometimes have. Like the caveman comics or the surprise boobies ones, they’re a bit obscure and kinda dumb but they make me laugh so I love them."

Jessica Rae, like most of us, had her own individual experience with quarantine, and despite losing her day job, found an avenue for more creativity in her comics. "It’s been okay, I lost my day job so that’s given me more time to draw but I’ve also had my 6-year-old at home and she can be pretty distracting (like right now while I’m trying to write this out and she’s trying to put necklaces on me and talking non-stop waffle, lol)." The best way you can show support for her is by following "Doodley Squat" comics on the respective social media links up above. Have a nice read!

This was the reverse for my ex-boyfriend and me. I'd eat the popcorn a kernel at a time, and he'd shove handfuls into his mouth.

Why it's such a shame to buy or even admit that we have periods?!?!?! I really don't get it. Maybe I'm too feminist to don't be embarrassed but actually empowered by it.

I have no idea. Every woman 13(is) - 50 (ish) needs them every month - or some other product. This should be as normal as buying bread, because it is.

My mom's giant truck-driving step-dad would go in and buy them for the whole household and when someone would look at him funny he would be like "Never seen economy sized band-aids before?"

My (now ex-) wife was amazed and pleased when she asked me to buy her tampons when I was going to the shop and I said 'sure', because her first husband refused point blank to do so. Why? (And btw, we didn't divorce because she asked me to buy tampons for her!)

... why is this a thing? It's a store ... they offer these ... you go there to buy stuff ... period pads, adult's diapers, all that stuff is there to be sold - just grab it, buy it, who carea? Why care about people who care about what you buy? Let them laugh ... something really relevant might happen even in their life...

I highly recommend buying a menstrual cup. Made of rubber, they cost around £15, but if you have super-heavy periods like I did, you will save so much money by the fourth month!

It doesn't embarrass me at all to buy pads. I don't get why anyone would be embarrassed by it.

I think it's some primal fear thing when in old times you were weak and had to hide while menstruating not to get eaten by predators.

A good many years ago, I had to ask a male clerk to get me a box of tampons from a high shelf. For some reason I feared he'd be embarrassed by (clean, unused) tampons, so I apologized to him. He said -- quite rightly -- that they were just products like any other products to him.
