LETS TANGO!  [_tayler]

Hello!

Oh, such a glorious week in NYC I had. But let me get some business out of the way, first.

Hey, Don't Judge Me, back, perfect, and stronger than ever. We're like Ben Kenobi, but without the random ghostly appearances.
Game of Thrones! Just... Gendry. Shirtless. Sooty. FIST BITE. ETA GUYS. I am not a book reader. Please stop telling me book things if they're not specifically mentioned on the show. I PROMISE I write down every freaking line of dialog as I watch. It takes me all night, but I want to catch the show's names, etc. NON-READER. I feel like I am constantly being nitpicked and I HATE THAT. It's just the internet, and I don't get paid. Thank you! Collapse )

Supernatural with Felicia Day! Oh, geeky girls are my favorite.
Touch! And seriously, these recaps are hilarious. You need to be reading.

More coming later today like Mad Men and the Borgias! Please help us out by "Liking" and tumbling and +1 ing - it helps spread us to new places on the internet. The more exposure we get, the better. :)

I spent the weekend lounging around and recouping from my trip (which involved theater, fabulous food - Lupa was maybe my favorite, CraftBar was pretty spectacular, too and I had THIS WINE, which was outstanding for its price point - museums, Botanical gardens and mastering the subway like a boss.) and came home to a clean house. BLISS.

Oh, and my husband informed me sheepishly that he actually left for a trip Monday night and came home Tuesday night. "What's this?" you might be asking. "What of Stoney's children?!" I asked, too. Oh, no worries. My mother in law just slept in my bed and was in my private space without me knowing, that's all. GAH. I KNOW SHE OPENED DRAWERS AND JUDGED THE STATE OF MY BATHROOM AND CARPETS AND I JUST HATE IT, AHHHH.

*head desk* I'm still D: about it. Good thing I didn't know while flaming_muse and I were in NYC. I would have been a basket case. Also, I learned that I would literally watch Jeff Goldblum read the paper. (Saw Seminar. He was entertaining, the other actors were as well, for the most part, but the story fell apart in the final third.) Book of Mormon was as wonderful as you'd expect, and I completed my group of signatures on my actual BoM. <3 that cast. It's so outstanding, I can't even.

I HAVE LOST THE ABILITY TO EVEN. Okay, I need to buckle down and get to work. How's tricks, gang? What's the 411?

Double post, but this has me absolutely crying

with amazement. For those that don't know, I have a sister that has "severe" autism. She doesn't really speak, maybe four words. She's had a series of strokes and seizures over the past year that have taken almost all of the words she'd worked on over the past several years. My step-mother is constantly looking for new ways to keep her engaged and hopeful.

Enter Hacking Autism. If you can watch the one mother saying her child spoke to her for the first time in 15 years and not burst into tears, you are stronger than me.

Click on the left side where it says APPS. These are designed to help unlock language in people with autism. My sister understands everything we say to her. She simply cannot talk to us. The reason why is the mystery (and maddening frustration) of autism.

If this can help anyone you know, you should send it along. It's always a good idea to put more tools in your belt, you know?
