I know that the less I sleep, the more neurotypical I become. If I'm really fatigued (which has been pretty much all the time lately) it is VERY hard to get the geek going on a target...

I also get very single-item focused, which also isn't normal to me...

Your work uniforms are an investment. And suits are basically uniforms. Buy CONSERVATIVE. Go through a Brooks Brothers, take a look, then check out a few discount places - You can buy $150 suits without a great deal of problem. Wear nice ties. Again, try to stay relatively conservative. You're going...

Sounds like you are already anticipating failure... Dude, what do you geek on? What really makes you tick? I've got a friend who likes to work on cameras. He buys old cameras cheap, refurbs them, and ebays them to collectors. There's -always- something. For that matter, get yourself a spray bottle, ...

I'm good with computers... but not numbers... What really works for me is -patterns-. I'm good at taking a data set, and getting down to bottom line stuff... What matters, and what's just noise... Let's see... Courses I've gotten As in... Journalism/Broadcasting law, Media Statistics, that sort of t...

The problem with criminal defense is, frankly, a whole huge majority of the people you will interact with are guilty scum. And you've got to take your logical solution of "You know what, we really need a long drop with a short rope," put it away safely in a box, and then try to get them off... Here'...

Heh... I've had Terrapin Station going for the past several days, but every so often it segues into Ripple...

Seriously.

Then again, it could be worse...

A store dedicated to drama... sigh...

I dunno... As of late I've been telling the fourteen year old's disaffected friends "go lengthwise - not across..." I get the nastiest looks.

I know someone who is a really nice person, until she goes into "business mode." Then it's like she's got a mad on for the whole day, and between the flailing around being "efficient" and the constant "hmpfing," I get tired just being in the same room. She also thinks that I'm "special." Yeah, I'm "...

When I was working for The Big Drug Company, when I'd lunch with other people, it was researchers, and we'd be talking about work... Which was fun and interesting. Then they took away my red Swingline, and moved me to the basement, where I was assigned to the Facilities folks, who seemed to have a s...

Amerique... A suggestion...

Ask the boss-type to change the name from "complaints department" to "Trouble Team."

That's a more positive, proactive-sounding snippet...

I didn't "get into" computers until college... And then I discovered the world available over the phone systems... Ran a BBS for a while, and now I also do some webjunk. I've found that I can somewhat target the geek - And it's really cool when I can point him, he goes, and several days, a few pound...

I'm pretty high functioning, genius level, and I've learned to avoid cocktail party chatter death... I'm also job hunting. Personally, I can't see why someone would avoid hiring an aspie... I've somewhat managed to learn to point the geek at problems, and let him rage - It may turn into a few all ni...
