I don't really want to go trick-or-treating with my older cousin and my little cousins after work tomorrow. No one seems to really understand how anxiety inducing all of the steps involved are for me. It's a massive routine change that involves a bunch of unknowns, and I am dreading how exhausted trying to deal with it is going to make me. I'm already exhausted from dealing with this whole week.

Why not a long weekend?
Why have work in Monday only to not have work at Tuesday and then back to work for the rest of the week?

Sigh...

Why do I have three copies of The Tempest, apart from Shakespeare anthologies?
They're all from the 80s and they all have school marginalia in them.

Other random duplicates:

The Diviners (Signed hardcover, and two paperbacks)
Anne of Green Gables (Box set and separate)
Le Petit Prince (3 paperbacks)
Little Women (Hardcover and two paperbacks)


I have multiple editions of my Brontë books but I don't know why I have these. ^

Will I take the extras to a book exchange or keep them?

Sometimes I wish that I wasn't autistic and didn't have other developmental issues.

One of my managers asked if I was losing weight and said that I should stop losing weight. Everyone keeps commenting on my weight and the amount that I eat.

It's not the sheer quantity and longevity of tasks that stresses me.

It's the when, where, how and which to do first -- order of things.


Aspies are supposedly prefer planning stuff, yes?
Well it's not a habit I picked up on. I blame this culture and people never able to teach me otherwise.

Because everything around and about me is an inconsistent mess.
And no amount of planning, save for very immediate and short term ones, don't ever go right.

Details is one thing.
Still lacking more details and not knowing if one has enough information is another.

I have an aunt from Japan, she's married to my mom's brother, and they're staying at her house right now. My aunt was discussing the upcoming holidays with my mom and asked if we could have both chicken and turkey for Christmas. My mom was puzzled and asked what kind of chicken, and my aunt said KFC. My mother thought that was really strange. When my mom told me this today we had a good laugh as I explained to her how in Japan people celebrate it by ordering Kentucky Fried Chicken, because apparently the founder of the first KFC in Japan told people that this was what Americans eat at Christmas. And he knew the traditional meal is roast turkey, he KNEW that if you were eating KFC or any fast food at Christmas in the US and Canada people would laugh at you. He just wanted to sell more chicken at Christmas. I saw a video all about it a few months ago. 8O

Also people in Japan don't really celebrate Christmas for any religious reasons, to them it's basically like people in North America celebrating St. Valentine's Day. :)
