Reading Update
Girls Growing Up on the Autism Spectrum: What Parents and Professionals Should Know about the Pre-Teen and Teenage Years by Shana Nichols, Gina Marie Moravcik, & Samara Pulver Tetenbaum. I skim-read this not as a parent, but as an adult with an ASD looking looking for better understanding. I do think this would be an excellent resource for parents – it’s very well-researched and practical.
Nerdy, Shy, and Socially Inappropriate: A User Guide to an Asperger Life by Cynthia Kim. Excellent book about the life-changing discovery that you’re autistic in your 40s. (Oh, how I could relate to THAT.) Based on Cynthia Kim’s blog, Musings of an Aspie, this book is packed full of everything Kim’s learned since her diagnosis, backed by research and supported by stories from Kim’s life.
Indexing by Seanan McGuire. Good contemporary fantasy about the ATI Management Bureau, an agency devoted to keeping fairy tale narratives from gaining power and warping reality. First person narrator and ATI team leader Henrietta Marchen is herself a Snow White in abeyance. (Maybe it was just me, but I definitely wondered if this story was inspired by the Thursday Next novels of Jasper Fforde).

Sad but true story – I can’t quite figure out whose tail that is. (It’s been over six months since I took the picture.) Chaos has a slight kink near the end of his tail, and there could sort of be a kink near the end of the tail in the picture, right??! Plus it looks more like his fur than May’s. I’m pretty sure…

  1. Chris- In the 1970’s I would have been Antoinette, which is a name I’ve always loved.

    Don’t you love the old photos of your city?

  2. Today I would be Kaylee, w-aa-yyy back in the day it would have been Charlotte.

    And I love that you can tell your two nearly identical black cats apart simply by a photo of their fur. This is what being a Cat Mom is all about 😉 (I can tell mine apart by their meow — that’s easy — still working on distinguishing their purrs.)

  3. The fur doesn’t look as soft and slinky as May’s fur. Plus it looks disgruntled.

    Today I would be Amelia and in the 1890s Gertrude. I would have been Jasmine in the 1990s–worse than Gertrude.
