A sticky situation

Yep, that's an old plate all right ...

In Ontario, Canada, we get license plates to put on our vehicles. The plate represents the relationship between the vehicle and its owner. A new vehicle or a new owner require a new set of plates.

But to maintain accurate records, the plates/owner registration must be renewed every year. Rather than issuing new plates, (like they did as late as in the 1970's, they now...

Always Late For Something

A song in the air ...

A few years ago I wrote what would turn out to be one of my favorite songs. It was called Chickadee and it was about a friend who had ADHD.

She became "Not my friend" before I finished writing the song, but the song, in my humble opinion, was too nice a thing to visit the bitterness that that hurt brought me, so I finished writing it by...

Schrödinger’s Notes

Famous note pad?

Well, I've done it. I've really lodged myself in to a predicament now.

Those of you who are following along may, at this point, be wondering what I'm talking about. You may be saying to yourself, "Is he referring to having promised holiday content and not delivered?"

Or you might be saying, "Oh, oh, has something gone wrong with the sale of the house? Like, maybe it's going ahead and he's realizing...

Talk Much?

Go with your strength?

Okay, I admit it. I can be a bit verbose, chatty, long winded. I'm Garrulous. Rambling. Wordy. You know, I tend to talk too much.

I'm reassured, though, by the fact that I never stay on one subject long enough to bore anyone.

At least I don't think I bore anyone. I've never been told I do. I've never really been told much of anything, once I get talking. That's why...

Two Groups

There are three groups of people in this world

There are two kinds of people in this world. Those who divide the worlds population into groups, and those who don't.

Obviously, I am in the first group.

There are many other criteria for dividing up the population, gender, skin pigment, political leanings, and so on.

And without exception, the divisions should only be applied for the sake of statistical analysis. Never for application...

Three Ways To Work

On time, ahead of time, and ...

I live a life of ADHD and I do it rather well I think. I spent a lot of my life not knowing about ADHD and as such, I was certainly unaware that I had it.

Then along came the old diagnosis after a half century, and now I spend my days observing things I could have seen all my life but had no frame...

Cure ADHD? That’s Brilliant!

Rather rank

There are those who postulate that people with ADHD are just not trying hard enough, that we're lazy.

There are those who suggest that we aren't very bright, that we're stupid.

I've recently read memes that offer the solution of corporal punishment to “cure” ADHD in children.

I suppose the idea is that if the inattentiveness can be beaten out of them they'll just be stupid and that will be acceptable. After...

The Golden Years Of ADHD

It might be getting late ...

I've had some rough times in my life. And to be honest, I've been sort of looking forward to growing old.

You know, that peaceful golden time when I might sit on a porch and spend my declining years as reclining years. Let my mind wander through my life's exploits until it gets to the fence of reality and crosses over into wandering places I've never...

ADHD, What It’s Like

... and it only took me three minutes

Having ADHD is like being normal, 'cause for me, it is normal. I've never been any other way. To me, people without ADHD are the oddballs. No offense, but from where I sit, they're really quite strange.

I mean, really, how can you live with a brain that moves that slow? It's like it must be stuck in low gear or...

ADHD, Decide

Decisions, decisions

It's Thursday evening. Just another Thursday evening. I'm writing this for tomorrow morning so if you're reading this and it's fresh, it's actually Friday. But through the magical teleportation of the blogosphere I am taking you back to last night.

But is it in fact, just another Thursday night?

Well, now that you mention it, it is not. What? Oh, well, yes, I was the one that mentioned it, but...
