Oh, Sorry. I Thought You Had Aspergers.

It is Monday again, already? Jeez. Well, it could be worse. It could be forecast to be cold and rainy today. Oh, wait. Despite today’s stupidness, Le Duke is still out of town, so at least my day is going to be a work at my own pace kind of day. Unfortunately, I have a ton of pots to get glazed, so not much time for the dilly dallying today.

Last night, Pancake Land and I were talking about how she tries to give everyone who is an asshole the benefit of the doubt. Not in that “I think that they might have had a rough childhood and their lone parent was addicted to speed and ignored them so they became an asshole” kind of way, but in that “I think that they must obviously have some sort of mental disorder that makes them lack the ability to read social cues” kind of way. She does this constantly. We’ll be watching a movie and a character will do something and she will mention how strange that action was and then she’ll point out that they probably have some sort of serious neurological disorder that prevents them from knowing that what they just did was a total asshole move.

I think when Pancake Land was younger she spent most of her time, probably too much of it, reading Abnormal Psychology textbooks and subsequently diagnosing herself with all of the diseases. After the novelty of that wore off, she started diagnosing others with diseases. The novelty of this has never worn off. I find this behavior awesome and try to encourage it.

Oh, I’ve been sitting here not typing and sounding out aloud (the correct) “Al-oo-min-um” versus (the incorrect) “Al-you-min-ium” for about three minutes. Silly Brits and their “Al-you-min-ium”. That doesn’t even make sense. Well, I’d love to stay and chat, but I’ve got a new XKCD to read and a new SModCast to listen to. More soon. ~SC
