Stupid plugins

So yesterday I was in the middle of updating when the plugins (I’m not even sure what those are) decided they didn’t like me anymore, and made it impossible to get anything done. I had to beg my designer Preston Winfrey for help and then he had to figure out what was going on and get the stupid plugins to work again.

Right around the time things got back to normal, Michael and our friend Larissa dragged me to Texas Roadhouse. The food there is all right but I am NEVER going there on a Friday night again. The noise was absolutely unbearable, particularly after the line dancing started. Crowded restaurants are not the greatest environment for an autistic person.

The conversation was about Michael and Larissa’s role-playing game, which I do not play. I barely said a word the entire time and mostly sat there stimming. Michael kept telling me to go to the bathroom if I needed a break from the noise, but I was afraid that if I did so, I wouldn’t be able to make myself come back to the table.

What a night.

The Missouri Highway Patrol has a bunch of new cases up and I’m going to try to add the rest today. Plugins permitting.

    I’m not autistic and Texas Roadhouse is too much for me. The food is way too salty, too.

    If you don’t mind explaining, what are your stimming actions? I’m in education, so I see a lot from kids, but not so much adults. Just curious.

      Mainly rocking and slapping my palms against my thighs. If that doesn’t make me feel better I progress to stomping my feet and slapping my palms against nearby objects, walls etc.

    I am beginning to wonder if “Few Details Are Available” is the motto of the Missouri Highway Patrol. I assume that Missouri law enforcement investigates these cases, but they cannot seriously believe that posting case after case of “few details” can inspire public confidence in their ability to perform, you know, routine police work. The Show Me state indeed.

      They often provide just a photo, dob, date of disappearance and place of disappearance. Nothing else.

    Gomez, I agree with you. I get upset when their are few details on a number of missing person cases. It would be nice if they spent some time to fill in the blanks. It also appears that their are a large number of people missing from Missouri. I came across a reference to a media article, that seemed to indicate that a number of black females were missing from one town. I could not pull up the article for some reason. So, I don’t what city or town they were referring to. It gives the impression that the various agencies are just going through the motions in regards to missing people in Missouri.

    I would like to see a television program called “America’s Most Missing”, that would highlight all the missing person’s. The host would also ask those who runaway, to contact their local law enforcement agencies and let them know they are alive and well. They would ask the agencies not to notify their families, if they were over the age of 20 or so. That way we could clear these cases from NCIC and NAMUS.

    Several years ago, someone posted a comment to a local on-line news system called whatever the area “Patch”, and said that they had runaway, and laughed when they saw their picture as a missing teen. I would like to wipe that smug attitude off his or her face, and say that their missing person’s report is taking up vital space on NAMUS and NCIC. Maybe they would like to pay a several thousand dollar fine for hiding that they are alive and well.

    If I was another girl, I would have followed you to the bathroom or parking lot to take a rest.
