Although his vet says Einstein is not a dwarf horse, he is so tiny that I know if he were human (proportionally) he'd qualify for LPA membership. Check out his website for more info and videos (there are TONS if you click on news) of the little guy.

I find it very interesting that throughout the video Judy, very purposefully it seems, does not use people first language. GO JUDY!

It's just that I'm too tired to post and vloging is the quickest and easiest way to get posts up everyday, in one day. A well thought out written post could take an hr, while posting a vlog takes like 5mins. I can really bang them out. Sunday's through tomorrow's posts were all posted on Saturday. I'm glad a lot of them are captioned for my Deaf/HOH readers.

Why is it that both AAPD & TASH are so lazily interviewing people in DC, where they are located and not branching out across the country? Bob Kafka would be cool, he kicks ass.

Anyone know what day this was on TV?

I found this video while I was doing a google image search for something I did not find. I did however find a picture of Glenda, clicked, and found Irked Magazine, where this video is located. Any of you know this blog? I've never heard of it & it's been around since 2006. It looks like there's cool stuff on there.

For pointing me to Mr Shuffles. You're right, if he were human (not an elephant) he probably would have CP. Although if you look at the zoo's channel, he doesn't seem to shuffle anymore. Google Mr Shuffles to find out his story.

Way to be a copycat TASH

Apparently Oprah is having a contest to find the next big TV show host and this guy is winning by a landslide. I'm too tired/depressed to look up the link to vote, so do it yourself. Also youtube this dude, John Mayer posted a vlog offering to compose Zach's theme song. Oh, and Zach is also training to crawl the Austin Marathon. Good idea? I dunno...

Apparently it's called Cerebellar Hypoplasia (CH) when you're a cat. There are more youtube videos of other cats with CH if you care to look. Found through Bethany S, via FB newsfeed

I know... I need to write something... I had some stuff in my head, like comparing nursing facility closures and BRAC, but yeah... not so much now...

My friend pointed me to this poem after reading my last post. "Perseverate..." HAHA... I went 25 years without knowing that word and now look--I never would have found this poem! It seems to be targeted so precisely at autistics and was written (I think) by someone not on the spectrum. Does anyone know if Mayer Shewin is autistic? Anyway, it is a GREAT poem, and without further ado
They fixate on objects
We try to make friends
They display attention seeking behavior
We take breaks
They display off task behavior
We have hobbies
We choose our friends wisely
They display poor peer socialization
We like people
They have dependencies on people
We go for a walk
They run away
We change our minds
They are disoriented and have short attention spans
We have talents
They have splinter skills
We are human
They are . . . ?

There are things that I have been meaning to post for awhile that I have not. Here are 2 stories from a few months ago:
I like my legs.

So I went to the first day of my internship last week (tomorrow is my 3rd) and my supervisor said something that I couldn't get out of my head. I've never heard the word perseverating before, and I just heard the 2nd person use it in relation to me. I went to my therapist the next day and she said the comment most likely didn't actually have anything to do with me. Made sense, 2 friends even agreed, but how do I know for sure? The only person who knows what my supervisor meant is my supervisor.
PS: BTW yesterday it turned out that the comment in question totally didn't mean anything. So much for all that mental energy...

I've been meaning to post these, found at the local Wegmans. They say "Masquerading as a normal person day after day is exhausting!" My prefered phrase when I am depressed and trying to appear not so is "Masquerading as a human being is exhausting!" Close enough that I had to buy

To quote one of Maryland's long time CIL directors, from the other day,
We don't do case management. People don't need to be managed -- they can manage themselves. We help people to be able to manage themselves.
