Blogs

  1. The 4 part *Klingon series*

    When I started this Blog, I was writing about each individual Generator. Then after awhile, I was able to categorize various recurrent topics. For instance, there are four items on the subject of Klingons. The first one, travel the river of blood , is a simple pop up, meaning it quotes material that doesn't recombine. Klingon sayings such as: In war there is nothing more honorable than victory. If a warrior ignores duty,he is...nothing. The background is suitably grim/somber. It was...
  2. conversation killer

    i still have an amazing/unwitting ability to kill conversations -- in forums, in rooms, in text groups, chatrooms, anywhere i go. sometimes i do this before the conversation has even started. on a popular messaging app, where there were various conversations going on in one thread, i decided to say hello, and contribute to the conversation .... and everything just died. (((crickets))) my other special talent in conversations is that i have the ability to be "stepped over" or "stepped...
  3. But isn't that more work? No.....

    Fursonal Ads Created by treebranch1 Title: Fursonal Ads Descriptor: Seek and ye shall find. Button: Prowl Total combinations: 12,042,240,000 I constructed this one day before breakfast, because it was easier to put together than finishing any of the ones I have started. What is a 11-digit number? I looked up what the number means. Format: adjective + animal + seeks + adjective + animal + object of search. Sample Results: Debonair Eagle seeks Aesthetic Pigeon. Personable Otter...
  4. Growing up

    All through school you would watch people grow up and leave school onto the next school or graduating school all together, the people that you looked up to. But as you get older you start to notice your friends growing up, wearing “cooler” clothes, talking about relationships and all the latest trends or things that happen when you become 16 like driving or 18 like drinking but while you are still the same age as them you are a spectator to the sport of growing up and just getting left...
  5. My Wonderful Daughter is Sweet Sixteen Today.

    I woke up at 5 a.m. That's approximately when she was born 16 years ago, today. Right now she is camping at the zoo with her troop. They got to spend the evening walking around the back areas of the zoo after hours and see how the animals are cared for. That's a pretty cool sweet 16 party. I can't wait to see her today and shower her with love and gifts. She has been so good to me this past year, and has been by my side almost 24/7. I wish I could do more for her. I wish I could give her...
  6. Burnout doing a Simple Task

    I burst into tears this evening, several times. I have no actual reason to cry, if thinking logically. I dont have any serious illness, or serious financial issues, or lose a job or a loved ones or anything. I think maybe I have a burnout. But the reason for the burnout is so stupid: my inefficiency in doing my job. If other people are given the same task, they will do it more efficiently. I am just being lucky getting this job - this is true, not impostor syndrome. I'm not qualified,...
  7. Thank God for the Recent Good Stuffs Happening

    I have this 'not good' tendency to not record or write much about good stuffs that's happening. Maybe that's why you would find my blog to be kinda negative most of the time. Anyway. So, my aspie husband passed the preliminary interview! Hurray! Maybe he's got lucky - because I heard they choose n number of people to go to the next round, and the people being interviewed in the preliminary were less or equal to n number.. But! He also did a good job, since if he was doing bad, he would not...
  8. Uncommitted Event Committee Members...

    Hi, i actually just want to rant. This stuff has been in my head for months. I tried to google if there's anybody else has ranted about the same problem, but i couldnt find it, only can find 'informational' stuff about this. Okay. I've been assigned as a committee member for a conference event. Previously, I've been assigned to other event committees as well, and i was not experienced at that time. At that time, everybody else in the committee were very great people, they know what they...
  9. He went to an interview! Yay!

    Okay, he couldn't sleep for two nights before the interview day. That sucks, we kinda argued because I will get tired too when he's insomniac. Like, I asked him many times about how about you wear a necktie; then he said no need and said I was nagging him. But when we reached the place, he said if in his country, he will wear a necktie. I said same here too. Then he said, that's the first time he heard about that. OMG! I was getting angry, since I already suggested to him to wear necktie...
  10. He finally got somebody talk to him, but..

    Okay, I prayed this evening that I wish God gives my husband friends.. And when he went to the usual prayer hall after sunset, I noticed he doesn't come back yet.. usually he already home after 30-40 minutes. Then we will go to the usual stall to have our dinner (he complained he's already bored with the menu there, but doesn't want to try new place). I was worried if something bad happened to him, like accident. I cant call him since he doesn't bring his phone. Or, that he finally got...
  11. Being the Sole Decision-Maker is Unexpectedly Exhausting

    This post is saying what I am feeling:Men expect women to take all the decisions: What to wear, what to eat, why to buy - even where to live | Daily Mail Online Well, I'm not the dominant-type woman, I prefer to feel safe with someone reliable. And I think Aspies are like that too - except maybe it feels a bit different. In my culture, husbands usually the one who are being reliable about almost everything. Of course they discuss with their partners too. Like house to buy, car to purchase,...
  12. Constructed by default & Posted 4 February 2020

    Celebrity Atomic Particles Created by treebranch1 I made this as a test of function of the site because nothing of my own that I put in the slots would run, even though there were no flaws in what I entered. One phrase in the first slot, a list in the second, and one phrase in the 3rd. Wdn't run. I cut the list down to 10 items. Wdn't run. I substituted one of the site's lists. Wdn't run. I entered 2 more of the site's lists, with a feeling of *this is stupid/pointless/meaningless/not...
  13. We are okay

    Tonight we were in an accident. My daughter was checked out at the hospital, but everyone is okay. A truck ran a red light and plowed into us, hitting her door. My poor daughter had to get a CT scan and an Xray tonight. Has a little black eye, but she's doing great. They were threatening to put her in a neck brace for 2 weeks, and she was terrified all the kids would make fun of her. Dr said in the end she didn't need it. She was so happy! To make her feel better, at the hospital I...
  14. I tried stimming: Spinning rings

    When the general public (which is my floppy term for people who know about the existence of autism but not too much about what it means) thinks about stimming in autism, most will probably come up with rocking, or hand flapping and the like, maybe also audible stims if they have ever been on a long flight with an autistic individual that happens to partially stim vocally. I believe most who have not gotten to know autistic people more closely will not think of more subtle ways of stimming or...
