Testing

Teacher: Keira did testing today.
On the way home, assuming Keira would Not understand the question …
Me: Did you play dumb or did you show them just how smart you are?
Keira put her cheek on her shoulder, smiled, blinked her eyes and said: I did play dumb. 🤦🤦
* They have No Idea who they’re dealing with 🤣🤣

What it means to be a Demisexual

I coul be Demisexual or Asexual.

“The broad definition of demisexual is that you only experience sexual attraction in the context of a close, emotional bond,” Jennie Steinberg, LMFT, LPCC, a licensed marriage and family therapist, tells Bustle. “In other words, a demiseuxal is a person, unlike asexual people, who experiences sexual attraction, but needs to form an emotional relationship first.” And the term applies no matter what your sexual orientation may be. Put into layman’s terms, it’s the difficulty in feeling sexual attraction to someone you’re not friends with first.

Peanut Butter Cup Stuffed Brookies ( Quick & Easy )

Ingredients

1 (10oz) bag of brownie mix (plus the oil & egg to make the batter)
1 (6 pack) Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups (12 cups total)
1 (16oz) package of refrigerated cookie dough

Directions

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and generously grease a regular size muffin tin.
Prepare the brownie mix according the package directions; set aside.
Separate the cookie dough into 12 even balls and then squish them down into the bottom of each muffin cup.
Place a Reese’s peanut butter cup upside down on top of the cookie dough.
Evenly distribute the brownie batter on top of each peanut butter cup until the wells are about 90% full.
Bake for 18-20 minutes or until the brownie batter is cooked through.
Allow them to cool for about 5 minutes before removing from the pan, and then enjoy while they are still warm.

NOTE : These are best eaten warm with vanilla ice cream on top.

Yum! Place any leftovers in the microwave for about 30 seconds to reheat.

You could also use an Oreo or a couple of caramels in place of the peanut butter cup.

Construct 3 Pause

You can set time scale to 0, anything should stop moving until you set it back to 1. Still some will not be paused like mouse/touch inputs I believed.

Another way is to put the events that moves/updates those objects into a group and deactivate it when game over.

Might be a good way to pause the game: https://www.construct.net/en/tutorials/advanced-game-pausing-400

HOW KEIRA UNDERSTANDS LANGUAGE.

Keira and Language

This is Patrick Steward reading a Shakespeare Sonnet.
* You can understand the words he’s saying.
* You may get the gist of one or two lines of the sonnet.
* But you definitely can’t respond in verse.
That is Keira’s entire life. Keira understands what we say like most of us understand a Shakespeare sonnet.

Race

C/P please do the same.
Ok white friends, I’m about to lay some hardcore truth on you right now, and many of you are not going to like it. Some of you are going to get immediately defensive. But before you comment from an emotional place, I encourage you to stop, re-read this post, do a little bit of research about casual racism and white privilege and then come back and re-read the post again. After that, if you still want to comment, please feel free.
Ok, here we go….

Many of you are the problem. Yes, you read that right. Many of you are the reason why these riots are happening. Many of you are the reason why it’s come to this. This is especially true if you’ve ever (but especially in the last week) said any of the following;

1. “It’s awful but…” – No. No buts. In the English language, the word “But” is often used to deflect or to justify behavior. Police murdering black people in the street is awful. Period. End of discussion.

Farewell 20 Plus year old, Good & Faithful, probably leaking radiation, making some bizarre noises, Kmart clearance special, for my first apartment, Microwave. You are the reason we purchased a second Kenmore.

A roommate once left a McFish for 3 days – didn’t think we’d get that stench out. Countless burnt bags of popcorn and exploding hot dogs.

Our Beer
Which cometh in bottles
Hallowed be thy drink
Thy will be drunk
I will be drunk
At home as it is in the tavern
Give us each day
Our daily beverage
And forgive us our spillages
As we forgive those who spill against us
And lead us not into incarceration
But deliver us from hangovers
For thine is the vodka
the shots and the cocktails
Forever and ever
Barmen!

Star Trek

The more I think about it I realize that Star Trek made defeating the Borg far to complicated.
In reality it would have only taken 2 moms of Autistic kids to defeat an entire cube.

“You call That assimilation? I’ll show you assimilation! It’s in her IEP and by God I will force you to comply. Resistance is futile Bitch.”

Top 2 didn’t work to turn off the touch pad, but it’s good to remember the short keys

Windows Key+I > Devices > Touchpad > Toggle Touchpad to OFF

Take actions related to touchpad driver
Windows Key+X (Or right click on Start) > Click Device Manager > View tab > Show hidden devices > Expand Human Interface devices > Right click on the touchpad listed there >

 

This worked: Below

Had to unplug the physical mouse to figure out which one it was, then plugged it back in and it worked.

Dead

When I’m dead all people are going to remember about me is that:
* I have epic allergies.
* I’m the only female they’ve ever known that watched Star Trek as a teenager.
And that ….
* I spent my ‘Mom Years’ in a constant IEP battle.

Since I can’t sleep I am reevaluating my opinion on women and the draft.

New Opinion: Women should not be eligible for a draft.
Reasoning: 1 man can impregnate, lets say 100 women.
However, it takes 100 women to carry those 100 babies. (Not factoring in multiples because ….)
Of those 100 pregnancies, only a percentage would be viable.
A country requires many women but only require a few men to keep the population growing steadily.
Meaning men are far more expendable.
