  1. I work for the cruise industry. I haven't worked for 5 days but when I did last it was over an hour between calls. I'm picking up my work from home equipment in a couple hours. I'm not really holding my breath for sales--and frankly, when I DO make a sale for anything closer than a year out I feel bad for it, but I have to if I want to keep my job and make a living wage.

    Remember when FROZEN S1 still reached S2 if they had too many views? I sure do... (and don't miss it one bit)

     

    Or how we couldn't rename -- and had to stare at that cringe-worthy typo of a name for aaall eternity. :wacko:

     

    I'm really glad we CAN rename now because I came back after a long hiatus to find one of my dragons was, for whatever reason, named something racist?! I have NO idea why I would do that and I changed it immediately

     

    I'm also really glad to see that a trading system has been implemented!


  3. It's just weird. The other day I was getting a ridiculous amount and now I'm getting very few.

     

    Comparing my mature hatchling to my egg:

     

    Egg from yesterday: 100 views/day

    Mature Hatchling from several days ago: 958 views/day

     

    What gives? It was the only site I used for the hatchie as well as the egg but the egg is getting a tenth of the views.


  4. My scroll is mostly unnamed right now because I was inactive and I guess I lost all my names. But I'm working on it. So I would like to take the oath and just bear with me as far as the naming goes, I'm trying to find good ones.

     

    I, Kayota, agree that if it has a face, it has a name.


  5. Nah, he's purebred smile.gif. The blue discolorations on the tongue are fairly common in the breed, even among the show lines. It's more common among german shepherds with stronger pigment, like black ones. As far as I know, I don't even think it's a conformation fault.

    It shouldn't be - I've never seen anything in any standard about tongues, and generally the judge won't -open- the dog's mouth, just lift the lips to look at the teeth.


  6. Wait, what? Seriously? "Fashionable?" WTF. Who on earth would *want* to be so...inept feeling, especially in the social realm? Who would ever *want* to feel like they're not quite human because their emotions are so different to even nonexistent? Seriously. WTF.

    It's to get attention. They think people will pity them, or that it sounds cool. sleep.gif

     

    @chickenhound It's weird... people usually think I'm older than I am. But... I still like cartoons... and other kid things. I'm not afraid to be silly... even though I'm going to be a legal adult in 4 months. I guess in some ways I'm more mature than most of my peers at school, and less so in others? -shrug-


  7. Boys are always more extreme in their behaviour, ASD or not.

     

    You ask any teacher who are the trouble causers in the class - he/she will point out half a dozen boys and maybe one girl.

     

    Out of the kids on my case load with behavioural problems, 90% at least, will be boys.

    I suppose that's true.


  8. @ Kayota

     

    If you are saying a 13 year old with aspergers is acting around 7 years of age, then that is pretty much expected.

    I guess... I wasn't like that when I was 13 o.O I was argumentative but I didn't go walk up to someone naked to get revenge on them. Even when I was 7. He was... really ridiculous. Really bad, he's never going to get anywhere in life. His parents never punished him for anything but they were always treating my girlfriend like crap. They spoiled him.


  9. ^Not to mention I am diagnosed and I scored lower than that on the test.

     

    "I have to warn people that I might not be able to handle everything at once and might need one or two people I know to coax me out of the corner as the night goes on. It's a very slow process, but eventually I do get out there and usually meet at least one new person, when I do get out. "

     

    Yeah, I have trouble actually talking to people/meeting people too. That's not really what I'm talking about - I mean like, I know this one kid with Asperger's who's 13 and acts like he's about 7 because his parents won't help him.

     

    @Tikindi - I meant more like the 12 year olds who are doing it to be cool, I understand if it's an -adult- who says that sort of thing. It just seems to be a bit of an internet fad right now with preteens and younger teens.


  10. Since autism is heritable you should all consider not reproducing.

    ...wat. Seriously, what's your problem? People with worse things than Asperger's reproduce. o.O

     

    Anyway, two things that REALLY irk me:

     

    Parents of children with Asperger's who baby them and give in all the time because they don't know how to push "NO." or what have you, and also people who have Asperger's and won't actually work on their social skills, and

     

    People online who say they're autistic when they've never been diagnosed professionally.

     

    Srsly wat.

     

    And I also hate being called an Aspie. I really do. I don't let it define me - it explains why I do some things, so I take those things and make the most of it instead of letting it control me. Example: I'm obsessed with dogs. I love them, I "store knowledge" on them. I'm going to be a vet tech and show my dogs in agility, and I can tell whether a dog is safe to approach by its body language 9 times out of 10.

     

    Random fact: Asperger's is more prevalent in males. I'm female-bodied, so people always seem really surprised if they know that fact and I tell them >>


  11. Anime: One Piece

    Age ristriction: 13+ I think. If you're not watching the awful!!! 4kids dub ogod >>

    Age ristriction: 15+ I think. Bit more nudity.

    Rateing: 5*
