First, a few words about our cast:
Who: Dyskinesia, your host (Dys)
What: Woman, mom, daughter, pet owner, self-employed in the healthcare field
With: ADD and probably a host of other things that could be in all caps.
Who: The Boy
What: Professional 10-year-old Boy, cool kid, son of Dys & TB, “brother” of a dog, LEGO Master
With: Asperger syndrome, many traits of Dys & TB yet to be filed under their respective titles
Who: The Dog
What: Seriously, a dog. Occasionally reluctant “sister” to The Boy, otherwise happy furball
With: A serious attachment to Dys, bordering on ridiculous but thankfully not yet there
A few notes on your host:
I am…a huge fan…of ellipses…
I am (really) also a (tremendous) fan of (can you guess?) parentheses (honest).
Okay, let’s face it: I have a love affair with punctuation; I have to admit it!
My favorite color is purple.
I have ADD, so it shouldn’t surprise you that my favorite color changes fairly often.
My favorite color used to be blue.
I own almost no purple clothing but a ton of blue.
My CD collection includes many CDs I bought for one song and have never listened to the whole CD.
I have an addiction to various forms of writing implements and office supplies.
When I was a kid, I wanted to be in Congress. My backup dream profession? Opera singer.
I can turn my tongue sideways in my mouth – in both directions. Go ahead; try it.
At various times in my life, my hair has been every color natural to humans except white, but I’m working on it.
I like candles that smell like anything having to do with fall, the smell of my son’s quilt, the smell of my sleeping dog, and the smell of my clean sheets.
My house is a mess. (sigh….)
I enjoy books, games of all kinds, music of most genres, comedy, movies — honestly, I most enjoy seeing talented people doing what they love, whether a comedian, a potter, a singer, a writer, a motorcycle racer, or a tattoo artist.
Working from home is one of the hardest and most rewarding things I’ve ever done.
I get a thrill from driving fast in a car that was built for it, a great pair of gloves, jeans that fit, laughing with my family, giving a great gift, and seeing people learn.
This page had comments long before I ever actually finally sat down to write it.
I genuinely hope that people can find something useful for them in my blog, whether that be relief, understanding, knowledge, comedy, or a needed distraction (not an unneeded one!); however, I write here as an outlet for myself and not for anyone else.
Last, but definitely not least, I love myself. I really do.
Welcome to Dyskinesia. I hope to see you again.
