Nah, the guy who delivered me was, by all accounts, an unpleasant asshole, so by definition he can't be hot.
And John Mayer isn't hotter than anybody, including Bandersnatch Cumberbund.
I WAS THERE!!!!
Ahh how exciting. We arrived in the morning for a day hike down from the South Rim, and the canyon was completely filled with clouds. We hiked down into the clouds, which was really surreal--I could see the cliffs going up and the cliffs going down, but on both ends the cliffs disappeared into cloud. It burned off after a while, but it was such a neat view.

I had a good Moment Between Women on the subway this morning:
I jumped onto the train right before the doors closed and a girl about my age told me she liked my bracelet, which is sort of a metal link number with small daisies affixed between every link. I told her "Thanks!" and added that I had accidentally broken off some of the delicate metal petals in my haste to put it on this morning. (I tried to squeeze it over my giant hand instead of opening the clasp. LEARN FROM ME, LADIES.)
Then a stately older woman who happened to be standing next to us looked down at my wrist and said, "It really is a lovely bracelet."
I thanked her and added, "I wish I hadn't destroyed it."
And she said:
"Lots of flowers are missing petals."
THE PERFECT THING TO SAY. What a graceful lady.

Yes! Thank you so much for sharing your story. As a long-time-lover of The Hairpin, I'm moved (for the first time!) to chime in on this. There is quite a bit evidence that supports the use of music, clinically- it's cognitive impact is extremely powerful. For those interested, the research of Michael Thaut (he's a pioneer of NMT, or "neurologic music therapy") or Gottfried Schlaug (A Real Cool Dude) is worth Googling/librarying/otherwise looking into. Music rules.
@Danzig! This mix is great, I'm really enjoying it. As is your article too, I related to all of it. My stimming is leg-jittering, and pacing, but I also have 'contentment stimming' when I am in bed and feeling at peace, then my feet waggle, much like a dog wagging a tail. Listening to your mix is making my feet go at the moment, in fact.
These days I also pass as odd and music fixated, which is quite okay :-)
Another autistic kid reporting in. I can totally relate to this article, especially the bit about music. Except I got really into weird ambient music, mostly Amon Tobin, or songs in languages I couldn't understand to help me sleep. Excellent description of stimming too.
