Clothing manufacturers should make more sizes available for sure. But making different *shapes* is important too. I know a lot of people who have problems finding things that fit due to things like torso length, leg length, shoulder width, and so on.

And in situations where the…

I hear you, Karalianne, because I have an unusual body shape, too - I’m short but NOT petite. My frame is one you more commonly see on taller people. I also have a long waist. Every woman’s top is too short on me, between my huge chest and my long waist. Everything rides up. I find skirts often fit me better than pants. The only dresses that work for me at all are the ones with “retro” (i.e., Bettie Page, etc) tailoring. Which carries a certain degree of grossness and sexualization now.

I really have given up trying to find pants that don’t look really dumpy on me. I live in jeans 24/7 pretty much but have given up on them actually fitting decently.

OMG maybe that’s part of my problem with a lot of womens’ shirts. I’m short (just under 5’3”) but when people see me in photos they often assume I’m taller until they meet me. And I also have a longish waist but slightly proportionally short legs. I can wear stretchy knit tops but I’ve only ever found maybe *one* button-up shirt that doesn’t look wretched on me, and it’s one I got at a flea market for $2 in 1998 (in college. Yeah, I’m tumblr-old). :P It’s very slightly curved at the waist and long enough not to ride up. Wish I’d gotten more of the same style when I had the chance.

The shirt shape you’re describing totally sounds like a thing that should exist! But it is definitely not something I’ve seen often.

In my case I have a hard time finding shirts that don’t ride up weirdly or dig into my armpits without being too baggy/bunchy.

I have the relative advantage in terms of being generally short and scrawny (way easier for me to find stuff that fits than it is for my plus-size-wearing friends) but I often end up needing to get pants from the children’s section because the smallest “grownup” sizes manage to be too long AND too tight in the thigh, etc.

If you are on medication for any type of mental illness, NEVER stop taking it, no matter how much you think you don’t need it. You have no idea how much that will fuck you up until it’s too late.

This is very appropriate to me today.

I’m really…

Yeahhh. I am really uncomfortable with the dichotomy that exists around psych meds. For a given drug, there are generally going to be some people who benefit from it and some for whom it may not just be unpleasant, but downright dangerous. Psychiatry in its current form is woefully inadequate to the task of addressing this situation. IMO the problem isn’t the meds but the fact that when a drug is made mainly to affect the brain, there’s a whole population of people it suddenly becomes okay to coerce into taking it. That is not okay. But the solution is not “make the drugs go away”, it’s “make the coercive nature of how they are often given go away”.

(FWIW, I currently take one type of psych med because it actually helps me. I have in the past been prescribed psych meds that did the opposite of help me.)

Not just size, but shape!

Clothing manufacturers should make more sizes available for sure. But making different *shapes* is important too. I know a lot of people who have problems finding things that fit due to things like torso length, leg length, shoulder width, and so on.

And in situations where the person has to look some formal definition of “presentable”, this can be a big deal.

Even a relatively high quality outfit can look awful if it technically “fits” but hangs funny on the person. The less usual your body shape is, the more you often have to end up paying to pass as tidy-looking when you need to. And that can often mean needing money you don’t have. :/

Anonymous asked: I've always been confused in books when descriptions focus so much on eye colour; it always seemed silly to me because, really, who notices that some new person you're talking to has blue eyes? I don't even know my best friend's eye colour off the top of my head! And I've just realized - autism, eye contact, yeeah. I'm wondering, is focus on eye colour just a book thing, or do NTs really immediately notice eye colour when talking to people?

clatterbane:

autisticdrift:

I don’t know if NTs notice eye color that much or not. I know that I rarely do because I don’t make much eye contact and when I do, I don’t think I’m taking in eye color so much as trying to get it right and not look like I’m staring too much or looking like a shifty-eyed weirdo. 

Also, is it me or is this even more of a thing in fanfic? 

I will occasionally notice it if someone has an unusual or otherwise striking eye color, but otherwise not so much. Though I can only assume that a lot of other people do pay more attention to that, from the number of comments I have always gotten on my eyes. Though, that could also fall under the unusual clause, so it’s hard to tell.

I don’t know how much of any difference there does involve different eye contact patterns, though, and how much is just from having to pay more attention to other things in a conversation. (Indeed including hopefully not coming across as a shifty-eyed weirdo, here too. Living somewhere now that my eye contact patterns do stand out. :/)

No idea if that is more of a thing in fanfic, but I have run across enough other fiction where even the briefest description of a character often involves eye color. Never thought about it that much before, but it is kind of an interesting question.

Anecdata point: I’m autistic. Not super keen on making eye contact (at least not in the usual sense) but I have always thought eyes were really cool-looking. Maybe I was kind of a creepy kid for this, but I remember frequently trying to find ways to look at people’s eyes without “that thing happening where they talk to me”. :p And I absolutely wrote stories when I was 12-13 starring purple and silver-eyed protagonists, because how else were you supposed to know they had super powers? :p

This is the first afghan I’ve ever crocheted.  It’s made out of 48 granny hexagons in two different wool yarns, and I just finished sewing them together.

Whoah!! That is awesome. It looks amazingly soft and texture-y. I wasn’t sure if Fey was going to permit assembly of the parts. :P

Though I’ve learnt to tolerate InDesign I’ve not yet come to love it. It feels a bit clunky in comparison to Illustrator.

~K.

I use both InDesign and Illustrator for work. They’ve both taken me a while to get accustomed to, but I’m at the point now where I can appreciate each for its particular function(s). InDesign, I’ve found, is really THE thing to have when you’ve got a multi-page design you’re trying to set up to have printed professionally. But Illustrator is far more powerful/flexible on the “pure graphics” front. My current habit often entails drawing things in Illustrator and then using the result within InDesign documents. That sort of thing.

House’s house?

House as in Dr. House from the show. Slytherin maybe?

Edit: actually more likely Ravenclaw.

Yeah, I actually think Ravenclaw the more I think about it.

Yeah, he has the Slytherin-ish quality of managing to (by some measures) be “good but not nice”. And he can be very cunning. But ultimately for him it’s more about solving problems and being right than about personal power. And *that* is about as Ravenclaw as you can get.

Also as for the other doctors (in Season 1 at least because I am only up to about episode 21?), I would say Wilson is Hufflepuff, Cameron is Gryffindor, and Chase is actually Slytherin. Not sure about Cuddy or Foreman yet even though it seems like it should be obvious.
