Merry World Autism Awareness Day, everybody! In honor of WAAD (really bad acronym, BTW IMHO ROTFL TGIF), we are all supposed to deck the halls BLUE.
Blue light bulbs in our light fixtures, blue t-shirts, even some major monuments and buildings across the world will be lit blue. My porch lights are a total bitch to pry off and change the light bulbs on, so that was out of the question. My advocacy stops at the point where I have to reach for a toolbox. Then I realized that neither Audrey nor I have much in the way of blue clothing, other than jeans.
Blue sucks. What the hell. Couldn't they have picked a better color? I got lots of pink. What, was pink already taken?
So I asked Audrey to provide me with some blue-themed artwork for occasion. Then I remembered that I'd been tagged in a meme a week or so ago by the fabulous Laura from Life in the House That Asperger Built wherein you are supposed to have your kid draw a picture of you. So I asked Audrey to draw a picture of me wearing something blue.
Then I also remembered that yesterday was my blogoversary, and I need to commemorate that as well. So I'm wishing myself a Happy 1-Year Blogoversary...which reminds me that I started my blog last year on World Autism Awareness Day! Does anyone else think this post is turning into one of those "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie" books?
Anyhootch, here I am...killing 3 birds with one stone:
There's an old Tom Petty song with the lyric "My whole world is a fountain of flame" that for years I'd misheard and sung at the top of my lungs as "My whole world is a five foot frame".
I like mine better. Cuz my whole world is a (almost) four foot frame.
Even though she thinks I look like Slash.
