Celebrating Neurodiversity, Creativity and Alternative Communication. Status necklaces, Neurodiversity Pride jewelry, shrinky dinks, and more!

You can also follow them on Twitter under SpacerobotStudio.

Check it out. [livejournal.com profile] jimnightmare and [livejournal.com profile] yonjuunana have been developing and testing some of this stuff for years as an alternative communication method for themselves: signal cards on a necklace to say whether they're up for being approached and talking, and how much energy they have for people-interaction.

For autistic people or others who have difficulty getting the message across through words or body language, these tools are really helpful. Thanks to the Spacerobots, they're cool to look at as well.

They've also been developing a line of steampunk-inspired jewelry and neurodiversity pride pendants.

Oh, it's been so long since I played truth or dare. Normally I would pick truth. Telling the truth usually isn't too excruciating, especially about fairly innocent things like "Who do you have a crush on?" With a dare, however, what if I was forced to, say, eat a slug or put my hand down the garbage disposal? One day when I was about 12, I was playing truth or dare with the girl who lived across the street, in her yard. Another neighborhood girl joined us. I chose a dare, and my friend told me to go kiss the front tire of her bike. So I did without thinking. Then she, her dad, and the other girl laughed at me, and she said, "I ran through poop on those!"

I'll turn the question around on you--ever done anything crazy on a dare?

On Saturday evening, my friend Michael came to visit me. The Santa Fe photo shoot didn't happen, and here's why (but I could always do one on a break from work). On Sunday we decided to go on a day trip to the town of Taos, which is north of here, and eat at an Italian restaurant we like. I don't go to Taos often, and I understand it's also known for its shops and galleries. And then, on the spur of the moment, we decided to go up to the Colorado border. And then we decided to keep going, all the way to Alamosa. We didn't get to stay long, because we had to go back home, but we both took several mountain pictures! Yesterday was such a fun day, and it cheered me up.
