#DSFWeeklyRewind: Need a break.

A few days ago I posted about an incident that had me dwelling pondering on my autism. The rest of this week could easily have been another example of things that on some level help to remind me that I’m not actually abnormal… well, IĀ amĀ abnormal, but only because I’m not neurotypical. But I’m not abnormal aside from my well defined abnormality.

It’s confusing, I know.

I feel like this week’s DSF Rewind should be some variation of Alice in Wonderland, though, perhaps not the Johnny Depp version.

Best Laid Plans…

There are times when something happens that makes me question all sorts of things… usually (especially since I got my official Asperger’s diagnosis) about whether or not that diagnosis was correct.

When I’m in such a mood, I generally listen to some Shostakovich.Ā  Continue reading

#DSFWeeklyRewind: My new coffee share.

Happy Halloween weekend my lovely people! Since the Weekly Coffee Share seems to have gone the way of the dodo, I appreciate that Tara over at Daisy Smiley Face has picked up the slack and made a new linkup for us to compare our weekly tales of wonder or woe.

While the Coffee Share was about sharing over coffee, I get the impression that this one has a bit of a musical score to it (hence the cassette tape… which is a way people used to listen to music, for all you young ones). Given that, my musical score today is coming from Jimi Hendrix.Ā  Continue reading
