My partner was watching the new Harley Quinn and Ivy tv show, that’s too violent for kids and Quinn is voiced by Hayley Cuoco.
I haven’t watched it, but my partner has been and he brought up a really interesting thought and it got me thinking. Why can’t a cartoon just be alone?
My partner was talking about how in this new show, he didn’t know if Ivy was actually interested in either Kiteman or Harley. That she as portrayed in this cartoon as very apathetic. It had me thinking, in every portrayal I have seen of Poison Ivy, I have never once thought of her as a “sexual” being. I’ve never thought of her being with anyone. I started to realise that I have only ever seen her as asexual.
Is that weird?
She just doesn’t seem that interested in the human race, at all. Her thing does seem to be plants and only plants. She knows she can use her sexual prowess, but she’s not actually sexual herself.
The closest that I could think of her actually being interested in someone, was Dr Freeze. That was because he could help her plants grow.
Even with the whole Kiteman and Harley Quinn, she seems to flip flop with both of them. I think you can be in love with two people at the same time, but there is always someone else you prefer, just that little bit more. Whenever she leaves one, or is left, she doesn’t seem that upset with it.
We have so much representation these days, why not have a popular character, that is kick ass, just doesn’t NEED a partner. I know we live in a very much “relationship” obsessed society. But there are people out there, having no problem being alone.

What was or is your favorite cartoon?
I would have to go with the classic that “The Simpsons” Even know I get so happy watching it. I believe there is a Simpson quote for everything…FOR EVERYTHING! Even now even though they are running out of ideas, I still am loving most of the newer episode. Any show that runs for over 20 years you are always going to have a miss type episode. I personally HATE the Australian episode too…It was just so stupid!lol
Which cooking utensil (other than the usual pots and pans etc) would you miss the most?
Oh wow, I had never thought about that before! I honestly think that I would miss having spoons. They are just so handy! They may not cut very well, but they can usually still do it. A lot of the time I use spoons to scoop things. It’d be a lot harder with a fork or a knife!
Would you dare to sleep in haunted house overnight?
I actually kind of have once, but I was with other people. I once spent a weekend at a supposed “haunted house” and we played a murder mystery over the weekend. It was so much fun! Personally I didn’t feel anything, but apparently others did.

What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week? Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.
My partner…Once or twice a year I just get really unhappy, everything that’s bothered…Even if it was a couple of months ago, gets on top of me. Even if I’ve dealt with, I just like to have a good cry. This week a lot happened at once.
My 30th is coming up soon and to celebrate it I will be having a Fantasy Rouge party. Pretty much people will be coming as a favourite cartoon character but putting a ‘moulin rouge’ twist on it. I have decided to put a twist on one of my favourite female characters…Harley Quinn.
Harley Quinn is a fictional character and a villain in the DC Universe and is most well known as the psychotic love interest of the “Joker”.
Harley’s first ever appearance was in the “Batman: The Animated Series” on September 11, 1992, the episode ‘Joker’s Favor’. Originally Joker was supposed to jump out of a cake as a distraction to capture and take a group of Gotham police officers hostage. However the writers and creators thought that this may seem too bizarre, even for the Joker. So sidekick “Harley Quinn” was made, although the Joker ended up jumping out of the cake himself. Harley was originally created just as a walk-on part, but soon become a popular character in her own right.
Harley Quinn became fascinated with the Joker while working as his psychiatrist after becoming intrigued by his crazy motives. Joker, knowing of Harley’s past having a mother who constantly calls her young daughter “evil, a con-man for a father and a dead beat brother. The Joker uses this information on Harley to gain her sympathy. This eventually works and dressing up as Harley Quinn, she helps the Joker escape Arkham Asylum.
