Looking back at Londinium...
I can see touches of myself in both of my main characters and it makes me want to write them so much more now to explore myself and who I am. Basil Hates anything having to do with social activities; dislikes balls and other parties Loves writing Comes across in real life as overly-serious, even though he has a very wicked sense of humor Dustin Is extremely childlike; doesn’t always...

Can someone neurotypical explain this to me?
If you’re a girl and your best friend (also female) is dependent on you emotionally and alternately pushes you away and clings to you like you’re all she has, what do you do? She lost her mother two years ago. There’s a part of me that thinks she believes I can replace her mother. I don’t get it. Is this what depressed people normally do?

I’m autistic. I can’t deal with normal female friendships. They’re too emotional for me and I can’t handle it. I keep getting nauseous over this sort of thing today. WHY DON’T PEOPLE WHO SEE ME ALL THE TIME GET IT?

mlbgirl replied to your post: Oh, no. Glad to know that they found the family before something unfortunate happened. I’m so relieved! I don’t know how old they are, but I hope they can get both the mother and her babies to some wonderful homes. <3
My roommate just texted me to inform me that the amusement park she works at has three kittens. There’s a cat that’s been living inside the kiddie log flume in the bushes in the middle, and apparently she’s a mommy. WANT.
Question of the day:
xthisbirdhasflownx: fuckyeahhotbaseballplayers: Jeter or A-Rod? Atomic bomb. I have never found either of them attractive. Just not my type. So since they both played shortstop at some point in their careers, I will stick with Jed Lowrie.
I'm sentimental right now.
I just got my pet album out - it has photos of all of our pets past and present in it. Mom and I have been going through old photos, and we found a bunch of her cats that she used to own and we added them recently. Mimi Lee, you were a gorgeous girl. I wish you and I could’ve met.
cornerinfielder replied to your post: cornerinfielder replied to your post:… YES. I’m so addicted to Burn Notice and White Collar right now, ahah. Not as good as Monk, but good enough. WHITE COLLAR. YES. My roomie also got me watching Psych and I really should stop comparing Shawn and Gus to Jed and Junior but whatever
cornerinfielder replied to your post: cornerinfielder replied to your post:… So did I, actually. I couldn’t believe it was over. At least everything else on USA is equally addictive to help us get over the Monk withdrawal.
cornerinfielder replied to your post: cornerinfielder replied to your post:… Same here. Monk was one of the shows my family and I would watch together, up until the very end. We all loved him because we thought he was a badass. We’re getting the series on Netflix now, too, so we’re watching it from the beginning all over again. God, I almost cried when it ended…

cornerinfielder replied to your post: cornerinfielder replied to your link: Television … Yes, he is. And I effing love Monk. I was so depressed when that show ended. Monk was sort of a personal hero because he had OCD and still kicked ass in that awkward way he did.
cornerinfielder replied to your link: Television Depictions of Asperger’s Syndrome -hugs- If it makes you feel any better, Sheldon is one of my favorite characters on TV right now. Is he really? I honestly think I’m a blend of him and Adrian Monk, to be honest. <3

Every time I watch Big Bang Theory, I see myself in Sheldon. He’s ME. And now you know why I’m annoying to live with…
I feel like I always manage to convince real-life...
Which is why every day I thank the internet for bringing me friends who see the real me through my writing and know how lucky I am to be creative.
I'm writing again
and it makes me feel so much better. I know that no matter what life throws my way, these characters I created back in high school will always be there for me to return to and take solace in. Basil Remington and Dustin Thatcher, thank you for being there when nobody else was. You two boys matter so much to me in a way that perhaps only other writers will understand.
Jasper Leggett, Philander Midgeley, Gifford Hoadley and Royden Stagg: Four opera...– I used to think I was clever when I was a senior in high school. This is from the character biography list in my Londinium folder.
Basil Remington and Dustin Thatcher will always be...
I don’t care who else they seem like to anyone else when they read the book or who else reviewers compare them to, but as far as I’m concerned they’ll always remind me of Pete and Dud.

Basil and two of his schoolmates were MSTing it. What is my life.
I just remembered this, but it's slightly...
When Basil (one of my main characters) was in school at Eton, he and his friends used to write and draw little satires about their teachers. They were convinced one of them was in love with his horse. Looking back on it, all I can think of is Texiera and it makes me seem like an even more fucked up writer. Oops.
