I use tumblr for a few, very specific purposes. To look at pictures of baby animals and to find puns and other bad jokes. I maybe started it as an extension of this blog and definitely do have a bit of autistic people I like to read on there*, but quite honestly, it is mostly puppies. Today I found this piece of beauty.
And I really truly love it.
Puns make my brain happy. I don't necessarily understand the puns all at once, but once I work it through, I love them. They are just so clever, how they can turn around the meaning of the words. Once the trick is all worked out, it is exciting. There is an answer, a definite answer. There is a reason why they are funny.
Sometimes I can't figure out puns, and I hate that, because I haven't found the answer.
And this puns was based off of one of my scripts
. One of my conversation fillers. One of the things that I can repeat when I need a break or when I need words but I don't have them yet. When I want to talk, but there aren't really words yet or I don't have anything specific to say. One of my ready-to-go, preformed, pre-made words.
And it had numbers in it, too.
So it was like the universe had combined to create this magical combination of
things that make my brain happy and safe into one gigantic, perfect, inside joke.
Which is wonderful.
*Which is something I feel irrationally guilty, or at least I think irrationally guilty for, that I don't use it more for that. That it isn't a serious real
thing where I write about issues and all that. But mostly I am ok with it. Because I really like bad jokes and pictures of puppies.
P.S. I am back to the Midwest now and have much recovered from the bit of a mess I was in when I left. So that is a good thing. Maybe I will make some more thoughtful-insightful/autism related posts soon. I have a lot of half formed ones floating around.
