Yesterday I followed someone new on Twitter called I'm a stormtrooper (@akmd65). She kindly followed me back. This morning on the train I had a look at her blog. It's wonderful! Her Twitter bio explains,
Relativity normal single mom with an obsession for Star Wars, roller coasters, 80s movies and ice cream. I speak fluent sarcasm and fight autism like a superhero.
Her blog is a delightful, touching mix of funny things her autistic daughter Maymay says, Maymay's movie reviews, and random thoughts from mum. I especially enjoyed Maymay's review of The Legend of Hercules, which can be summed up by this perfect sentence, "The movie made me mad because it was completely wrong." Also mum's blog post, "More reasons to love Mr. Rogers", which will make you want to go watch Mr. Rogers' six-minute presentation before the US Senate so I'll just embed it here:
I also enjoyed this bit of dating advice from Maymay to mum.
Besides all this charming content, the blog is decorated with funny photographs of stormtrooper action figures (etc.) in unlikely situations. You've seen that sort of thing before, of course, but it's very nicely done here.
So congratulations to I'm a stormtrooper for a lovely little blog (which by the way is more proof--as if more were needed--that Star Wars isn't just for boys). I'll be visiting again soon.
