topherchris: So, over a year ago I was drunk and feeling spunky so I recorded a lipdub of Natural Born Killaz by Ice Cube & Dr. Dre. I realize that lipdubs are hopelessly tired at this point, but I feel I should be given special consideration because of the satirical nature of this piece. I mean, I’m a white boy wearing a tie and doing Natural Born Killaz. Also I made a few mistakes but...
Can we say perfect timing?
There I was wallowing in the kitchen, wondering if I was alone. The mortgage is late, from last month, the kitchen is a mess and the husband is off with his brother to spend $233 on an alternator for my blue car that we don;t have. I thought, wouldn’t it be lovely to just run. run away from responsibility, from the job I hate but I keep because the hours and the flexibility are perfect,...
killthefez asked: I always love seeing your pictures of your kids or just side notes about them. Your boys are very lucky, they've got a mother that obviously loves them to pieces, regardless of anything.
It's makes me smile.

My 6 year old is Autistic, he was diagnosed 2 months shy of his 2nd birthday. We started early intervention 4 months prior to that and it destroyed me at the time. It was as though my son had died and was...

sendchocolate: Every Friday night I take the boys to the local YMCA to swim. It used to be with the husband but now he goes out with friends so we go alone.

yowhatsthehaps: Maybe I’m really abrasive and no one wants to tell me. Maybe I’m super intimidating and people are afraid of me. Maybe I live in some secret world where I’m really good looking and therefore people are afraid to talk to me. Sure. That’s it. That last one. Yeah. That must be it. definitely the last one

plf515's favorite joke about Aspergers →
jaspersboy: This is one I heard before but it made me laugh so hard! A guy is flying in a hot air balloon, and he’s lost. He lowers himself over a field and calls to a guy “Can you tell me where I am and where I’m headed?” “Sure. You’re at 41 degrees 2 minutes and 14 seconds North, 144 degrees 4 minute and 19 seconds East; you’re at an altitude of 762 meters above sea level, and right now you’re...

goodluckhipsters: I tend to stray away from National Bestsellers, but this one really caught my eye. The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon has been remarkable. I started reading it yesterday and I am almost finished with it. I did not think that it was possible to get so engulfed into the mind of a teenager suffering form Asperger Syndrome, but Haddon does just that. I...
