Current Mood: drunk drunk

Whee. Was out at dinner/drinks with coworkers - emphasis on the "drinks". Turns out my comprehension/speaking of japanese goes way, way up when I'm kinda 'faced. (My typing skills engender many more typos, on the other hand.) Fun was had by all. This contrasts quite a bit with being awoken this morning by the police investigating some gaijin deadbeat (or so we infer) who was in my room about a year ago. It was kind of annoying being awakened from the bizarre and portentous dream I had about some gigantic redwood-like tree that turned into a sleeping human female when fed the right combination of magical ingredients (which was required for some mission I and the elder witch were on). Also realized that one of the probable reasons for my hypersomnia is that warmth + blankets = comfort to my aspie self when all around me are people I can't talk to and stress about job (possible Microsoft acquisition of Yahoo, not having firm health insurance that works in Japan, etc - but mostly not being able to talk to people.) Go figure.

MS ain't over - and probably won't be for another year, unless they super-publicly announce that "We're no longer interested," and seem to mean it. As part of the fallout, there are discussions about merging Y! and AOL, or News Corp's online stuff, or...

As far as health insurance goes: I probably could use it, but for some reason insurance providers get all antsy if you're not in the country of issuance for extended periods of time. Also, I need a legal document saying "Yeah, I have insurance and so don't need to enroll in the mandatory national plan."

I didn't know you were an aspie. How much so? Turns out I'm just inside the range myself. (Never would have known why I am the way I am if I hadn't taken a test last year.) I understand about the curling up under blankets when the world gets to be a little too oppressive.

I envy your ability to learn the language in immersion, but at the same time, I don't, because the stress and energy drainage would just about kill me. I don't do well with that. Even two challenging hours of one-on-two in my tiny "class" puts me at my wit's end.

Wahahaha. My immersive learning hasn't been that hot. In fact, it's rather sucked. I find that people talk too quickly for me to understand, for the most part.

As far as the aspiedom goes: I'd vaguely wondered about it since I heard about it in the late 90s, but dismissed it as being the malady of the week. Turns out that I have both ADD and Asperger's, and the two cancel each other out in a bunch of ways; as I'm far more ADD than aspie, the aspie symptoms get masked quite a bit. (My psych didn't diagnose me as aspie until about two years into treatment.) Reading about the lists of things that Aspies do that "neurotypicals" don't was amazingly enlightening; I mean, I thought everybody cut tags out of their clothing!

It isn't common to cut the tags out of the clothes? :-/

Nope. It's not common at all. That's why I was so surprised when I found out that it was unusual.
