I have never had a routine if I had a choice and I've always disliked routine. I loved when there were changes to the daily routine because I was bored otherwise. As an adult, I have struggled to have any sort of routine or structure. Abiding by routine has always felt restrictive to me. This is me...

For most of my life I've been either self employed or un-. (Including many years as a househusband.) I'm an absolutely terrible employee in most fields. First, I'm slow, because I can't learn routines or manual skills to the point where they're automatic. So I stop and think what I'm doing in situat...

The series at first did try hard to reflect the original characters. (Which made me very annoyed that they didn't do the same with Mycroft. He'd have been a far more interesting character as an antisocial recluse like the original, only moreso in this century, when he could work exclusively by telep...

History, mythology and fantasy, and the overlap. (Alternate histories like steampunk, and fantasies involving real history, like Mercedes Lackey's Elizabethan adventures with elves.)

Writing. I started with science fiction but seem to have found my genre in erotic romance!

A couple of years back I emigrated from England to Sweden. (Family reasons unconnected with this forum.) I've always been able to make myself at home wherever I wound up, but still, I was pleasantly surprised at how smoothly I settled in to living in a new country. Recently it dawned on me that bein...

In the opening episode of "Sherlock" Lestrade calls him a psychopath, and Holmes retorts "I'm not a psychopath, I'm a high-functioning sociopath." But he always looked to me like a classic Asperger's, making a career of being able to describe his pattern recognition in terms neur...
