Not one, but three posts. Very similarly sucky posts. I do mean that they were about the sucky parts of autism, not that the posts sucked.
I had to go google "phases of the moon" to check that it wasn't a full moon causing it.
It wasn't. It was close to being dark of the moon, though, if you really want to know. And it was all very dark here.
Then I found Tina and Madmother plotting (in the comments aisle) to run away to a desert island together.
Mmmmmm, dreaming of desert islands, packing suitcases and throwing in the towel made my day feel less sucky.
Right then, I resolved to post on Autism Sucks and invite everyone to dream with me. Resolve is cheap, and action is slow, I suspect because Tina did in fact run away with Madmother, and wasn't answering emails for a while, but I finally got here.
I am proud to announce...
Here's your suitcase.
We are running away from everything that Sucks.
I'm bringing (reprise):
Cocktails (and wine, and whisky, and oh, just everything alcoholic)
Chocolate (one of those magic, endless Tim Tam packets would do)
Books (to be read uninterrupted)
Laptop with internet (to keep in touch with sane people. Do desert islands have broadband?)
Adult food (you know, with spices and textures, and plenty of gluten)
Camera (for taking beautiful photos of sunsets while strolling)
Sarong (for covering the bits that hang out of the bikini if you have children and are not a supermodel)
... and I'll throw in the towel.
What will you bring?
I am Lisa, and I can be found in A Different Brainspace unless I've run away again, in which case I'll be on a desert island somewhere, under the weather.
