Whoever designed the Halloween decorations that have silhouettes of cats with their tails up and their backs arched obviously didn’t speak Cat: that pose means they’re more scared of you than you are of them, but they don’t want to run.

I love crochet; it’s the one form of perseveration I like that doesn’t garner me weird looks.

This isn’t going to be a regular occurrence, but I’ve been on a massive Farscape kick lately and had to share. It’s only tangentially related to autism, but it has everything to do with experiencing the world differently, and I had to share.

Behold, the way I experience social interaction, as related by former soldier Aeryn Sun:

“What I had to do up there was like a field strategy exercise, only the enemy wasn’t trying to kill me, the enemy was a puzzle, and there were lots of different pieces, and independently — separately — they didn’t, they didn’t make any sense, and I had to think it through really hard, and I had to work out, try different combinations of putting them together, and then finally I worked out what had happened, and I worked out what I had to do.”

(Yes, that’s really all one sentence.)

Is it weird that I can hear the mail truck at two blocks away, but not a person across the table in a crowded restaurant?

My caption won on DJ Kirkby's Wordless Wednesday

(Granted, everybody who put a caption in this week won, but it’s the principle of the thing.)

(The original Wordless Wednesday post is here.)

(I really need to quit using parentheses so much.)

This is the kind of thing I can watch for hours if you let me. (The really cool stuff starts at around 4 minutes in.)
