I was standing in the middle if London on my First Birthday, than I was abducted by Aliens, and the Aliens dropped me off at my Parents' Front Yard, at their Peace River Home, while my Dad was working in the Oil Rigs in the Yukon.

I like clothes that are comfortable and not too Prissy.

I've found this Site by reading a News Story on AS.

My Current Occupation is saving certian Buses. :lol:

My future plan is to save the Routemaster

I was very tense when I've first joined. I didn't trust anybody that I had to deal with off the Internet. I've made great strides, since Last December, when I've decided to Get Real.

What is your first name? Pass.

Age: Sixteen.

Location: Pass.

Hobbies and Interests: Aikido, linguistics, music, Gaia Online.

Why are you here? I have Asperger's syndrome.

When were you diagnosed?(skip if you don't have a disorder): When I was very little.

Favorite subjects: I enjoy studying Japanese.

Year/Grade: Fortunately home schooled.

Favorite music: Traditional east Asian music and most anything by L'Arc~en~Ciel.

Books: Non fiction. Fiction just doesn't interest me anymore.

TV shows/Movies: Those no longer interest me as well. I guess documentaries.

Instrument: I especially love playing shakuhachi and ocarina.

Do you like sports? If Aikido counts, then yes.

Family: Yeah, I have one of those.

Clothing: Mostly casual, but I adore vintage.

How did you find this website? I followed a series of links from neurodiversity.com.

Any comments? I feel that I should get this out of the way now; I LOATH emoticons. I find that they rot one's brain and excuse poor writing and punctuation. And I find it especially ridiculous to use them on a site full of "Aspies". Many of us don't even understand real facial expressions, so why use a virtual substitute? Also, we are not on the wrong planet; we are the ones who brought it out of the stone age, in my opinion. Anyway, thanks for reading this!

Location: Long Island, New York

Hobbies and Interests: Video games, Nintendo in particular, Computers, YTMND, Naruto, acting, barrel rolling

Why are you here? Because Stone Cold Steve Austin said do.

Favorite subjects: Computer anything. Also sleep.

Year/Grade: Going into 11th.

Favorite music: Pretty much nothing but game music (and whatever's on the YTMND soundtrack). I particularly enjoy the soundtracks of the Zelda, Metroid, Mother, and Fire Emblem series.

Books: Don't really read books...I guess Naruto, but that's technically a manga.

TV shows/Movies: Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Rat Race, Billy Madison, Happy Gilmore, Little Nicky, The Waterboy, Austin Powers, Harold and Kumar go to White Castle, Eurotrip, Spaceballs, The Producers (old one), History of the World, you get the idea :P.

I don't watch TV that often, but when I do I most enjoy Naruto and Family Guy.

What is your first name? Gordon I sometimes go by G.Go, which is my last initial and the first 2 letters of my first name. It sounds exotic to me. :lol:

Age: 50 8)

Location: Indianapolis area, much to my surprise. 8O

Hobbies and Interests: My kids (5 and 7), who have both been diagnosed with PDD-NOS, Music, Gardening, Photography.

Why are you here? Always learning. I have just discovered this site 3 days ago and have spent every free moment reading and being uplifted by many of the members. I only hope to continue to draw from this amazing well of experience and maybe contribute if possible.

When were you diagnosed?(skip if you don't have a disorder): Have not been formally diagnosed, but I have 2 kids (boy, 7 and girl, 5) who have been diagnosed with PDD-NOS (favoring an AS diagnosis so far) and further evaluation is upcoming. In my obsessive nature to learn all about any new interest, the body of study I have undertaken has left me with no doubt that I, too, am affected. :?

Favorite subjects: Realizing that this question is asked for the benefit of a younger person than I, my favorite school subjects were anything nature or science related, electronics also. Math was also a strong point for me, but I didn't really like all the excersizes, since it just comes naturally for me.

Year/Grade: Graduated high school in 1974, too young and disorganized to focus on college at the time so I got married. :roll: It didn't work.

Favorite music: I enjoy all forms of music. I play music constantly at home, Rock about 50%, Jazz about 30%. I like classic jazz, like Miles Davis John Coltrane, Thelonius Monk, classic rock Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, Jefferson Airplane, The Who, The Beatles, and some heavy metal, also some newer groups, like Bare Naked Ladies, Wilco, The Donnas, Liz Phair, Tool. I could go on for days.

Books: Sci-Fi, Isaac Asimov, Stephen King, Roger Zelazny, Dean Koontz. Gardening, sound and stereo, and Photography.

TV shows/Movies: Rarely watch TV, but I like Nova and some of the music related PBS programming. Some racing and football. I love good sci-fi, mysteries, "feel good" movies.

Instrument: Guitar. Played bass in a band as a teen and became more interested in the PA gear. Actually made a decent living with a sound company, supplying equipment for concerts. Photography was a second job until about '91, when I made it the primary.

Do you like sports? Some. In school I was a good baseball player with an uncanny ability to hit any ball that got near me if I had a bat in my hand, but I always wanted to play football. I never made the football team. I enjoy watching Pro football and racing.

Family: Beautiful intelligent wife, brilliant son, 7 (entering 2nd grade in the regular mainstream classes, although he was reading at 18 months) and gorgeous daughter, 5 (entering kindergarten, mainstream) plus a fairly cool fox terrier, fighting crime. Both kids are echolalic, but they are so clever many adults don't realize it. My daughter only spoke backwards (always opposite meaning than what she stated) until she was almost 4. They have both made incredible progress.

Clothing: Mostly cotton. Comfortable, quiet, unassuming clothing is a must! I can't stand the smell or sound of plastic, poly, imitation fabrics. I don't care how much perfume you put in your wash I can smell the plastic decomposing in your blended fabrics and it is quite distracting. The hideous sigh and scraping noise as it ruffles is enough to make me cringe if it catches me by surprise.

How did you find this website? Search engine.

Job: Semi retired, Part time only, stay at home Dad. My wife still works.
I worked as a sound engineer for many years and opened a Photo studio about 15 years ago, but have since left all that to concentrate on our kids.

Plans for the future? Trying to keep my kids in the mainstream classes, while giving them a crash course in social expectations. The inmates are running the asylum around here, sometimes, but I can understand and help both kids better than anyone else on the planet, so far, even tough they are distinctly different. I am ever more anxious to find new ways to connect to them and will entertain all possible methods of teaching.

Any comments? Nah ... but, please, do.

What is your first name? Robert. Bob is OK, Rob or Bobby are not.

Age: 46

Location: Seattle/Tacoma WA

Hobbies and Interests: Golf, dancing, hiking

Why are you here? Asperger's

When were you diagnosed?(skip if you don't have a disorder): Received confirmation TODAY (8/1)

Favorite subjects:

Year/Grade:

Favorite music: Many kinds (especially novelty music), excluding rap. Some favorite artists: Kate Bush, Cowboy Junkies, Beatles, Stevie Wonder, Harry Chapin, Gordon Lightfoot, Moody Blues, Chris Isaak, Simon & Garfunkel, Brian Setzer Orchestra, Enya, and oh yes, the Bonzo Dog Band. I also listen frequently to classical music if I just want "background" music.

Books: Favorites are mysteries (Agatha Christie, Dick Francis, Tony Hillerman) and historical novels (e.g. James Michener). Also Ayn Rand. Favorite "classic" book is "The Count of Monte Cristo".

TV shows/Movies: Jeopardy!, South Park, Simpsons, My Name Is Earl, Desperate Housewives, Boston Legal, sporting events. I typically don't watch "reality" shows.

Instrument: Piano

Do you like sports? Yes. Besides watching and golf, I also run. Would like to try softball if I could find a team.

Family: Divorced; no children. Father deceased. 2 sisters, 1 brother (all living out-of-state.)

Clothing: No baggy clothes or cargo shorts!! Not a big fan of "casual dress" workplaces (unless they're outdoor).

How did you find this website? Asperger's Northwest

Job: Currently none

Plans for the future? Will probably be spending the next two years in college full-time (either for accounting or biology -- I haven't decided which) to try to get a new career so I can be employable again, unless I can somehow manage to get a real job in software development. If biology it will be as a second bachelor's degree (I already have a master's in computer science but right now it probably isn't worth the paper it's printed on); if accounting it will be in non-matriculated status but I would expect to take the CPA exam upon completion.

Any comments? I have been a part-time student at the community college level for the past five years. I attempted to get into pharmacy school but despite a 3.95 GPA in my prerequisite courses and a 99%ile score in the entrance exam I did not get in despite several tries. (Maybe I would have, somewhere, if I had applied nationwide which is probably what I would have done if I was of college age.)
