What is your first name? Lydia

Age: 41

Location: Hollywood, Florida, USA

Hobbies and Interests: Many and varied. I think the place I've listed the most of them is on my blogspot profile (sistersunshine)

Why are you here? Because I'm an Aspie and appreciate the online "company" and viewpoints of other Aspies as well as anyone else who's creative.

When were you diagnosed?(skip if you don't have a disorder): Haven't gotten that yet. Self-dx about two months ago.

Favorite subjects: Music, horses, off-the-wall conversations that bounce wildly from one subject to the next

Year/Grade: N/A

Favorite music: Everything except death metal or screamo

Books: Again, my best list of these is on blogspot, but it's by no means comprehensive

TV shows/Movies: Again, my best list of these is on blogspot, but it's by no means comprehensive

Instrument: guitar, a little banjo and piano sometimes bongos or tambourine

Do you like sports? Only non-team sports such as horse racing, ice skating (figure skating) and ballroom dancing.

Family: Husband (longsuffering soul) for 20 years, been with him for 22... raising five of six kids I gave birth to

Clothing: Whatever fits and doesn't make me look like a clown (if I'm lucky!)

How did you find this website? Through other aspie/autie forums I visit

Job: Um, nothing officially, but I'm a mother, singer/songwriter and webmistress among other things. Never have found working for a "paycheck" to be very stimulating. Cash on the barrelhead!

Plans for the future? Not sure right now. Discovering that I'm autistic was revolutionary, and may considerably alter my plans... as I'm seriously interested in promoting our rights.

Any comments? Glad to be here, looking forward to getting to know some of you. I'd say all of you... but that's unlikely with over 6000 members!
