might be a leeetle bit unethical to hire a friend.
We had dinner with some friends this evening -- five of us in total. After discussing it with Helen earlier in the week, I came out to them as autistic.
I got an interesting set of reactions. Angela (a former headteacher, who I thought knew more about autism) said: "but you're so social." So I said a few words about masking and learning to spend time in company. Lesley replied: "you should have known him when he was young. He was really quite odd." (No, it's fine, we have that kind of relationship.)
I told Angela I thought she'd known for years, and she said she'd suspected it, but only because of my unusual walk. So, if you really want to pass as NT, you need not only to avoid ticcing and stimming, and make eye contact, and say the right things at the right speed, and pull the right faces, but also to get your walk right. Who knew teachers specialised in gait analysis?
So that's it. I'm committed. I'm #ActuallyAutistic now. 🙂
The republicans have finally said the ultimate quiet part out loud: https://open.substack.com/pub/steady/p/cpac-speakers-goal-ending-democracy?r=1rtvr5&utm_campaign=post&utm_medium=email
I stopped at my barber with my scooter/car. He loved it, might see if his mother wants one. She's 80 something. A guy followed me into Walmart to ask about it. Beverly, who owns the haunted mansion around the corner, finally saw it and told Curtis "it's so cute! I love it!" So I think this kind of vehicle's time has come.
ROBERT Kyoung HUR SNOOPED THROUGH JOE BIDEN’S DIARIES AFTER WHITE HOUSE WARNED IT WOULD BE UNPRECEDENTED.
Robert Hur is a #maga #stooge and hails from the firm that advises Donald Trump's real estate business. HOLY F'ING CRIMINALS. He also worked for Rod Rosenstein. Did this asshat commit a crime by improperly going through President #Biden's personal diaries?

Abortion to them equals the poor and minorities…while ivf is more of a middle to upper class thing…plus it reveals how far they will go if elected
👉🏼 “#Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall weighed in on the issue on Friday. Marshall said he “has no intention of using the recent Alabama Supreme Court decision as a basis for prosecuting #IVF families or providers,” in a statement from Chief Counsel Katherine Robertson.”
Three bears, three crime #writers (all three of us have been published in Shotgun Honey, among other criminal enterprises). Selfie by James Tuck, catching me in conversation with Charles R. Rutledge, talking about the ghost of Walt Whitman (as one does).

Hey, I like to interact with people here, replying to others’ posts and especially to replies to my own.
But… if you have an opaque handle, no links in your profile, no introduction post, and no avatar, I probably won’t.
Trump's America-near-apocalypse rhetoric works particularly well with his evangelical base, a group parlaying religious decline into cultural demands.

A colleague from another company said something really kind to me yesterday on a recorded, public meeting. It made my week and I don't even think he realized it.
Everyone, do this more.
But you just know that even though he's giving lip service to being wrong... the dirty old creep is still thinking it.

Unironically happy about the #MoonLanding (yes, I know it’s probably bad for a variety of reasons. Please don’t hate me.)
I am at the Veterans hospital today. We are the patriots and heros. Republicans have perverted the truth.
To think a rapist, fraud and insurrection who worships the enemies of America- called us suckers and losers. He was too cowardly to serve. The criminal donald trump is manifestly unfit.
