Hey
Do you have Asperger's or just prosopagnosia? If not, I didn't know that non-aspies used the word neurotypicals. We use that to refer to non-Aspies. Anyway, Boston's not a great place for tourists, but a great place to live. Lots of college kids and even more Sox fans though.

I live in Providence, RI, which is about ten minutes east of Fall River, so I will have to try to stop by George's sometime.

From what I've read online, a lot of faceblind people have been incorrectly diagnosed as having Asperger's because of the "different" way they relate to others. Or maybe some people have both. It seems like someone with one neurological problem might have others, too. So those people might have introduced the term NTs to the others. As far as I know, Bronwyn's never said she had Asperger's and, knowing her, if she had it she'd tell you so.

Hey Bronwyn, if you come back to Boston, try the cannoli at Modern Pastry, just down the block from Mike's. My friends and I prefer Modern over Mike's.

noah

thanks janey,
faceblindness is often a symptom of asperger's, so i can understand the misdiagnosis.

Pity you didn't enjoy Boston, most people consider it made for tourists -- there's a dozen terrific museums, the beautiful river area and back bay to explore, the historical walking trail that takes you to all of the places so important during the American revolution, the Fenway market, the Public Garden, the Theater district, harbor and island cruises...more than you could in a week. One of the reasons I love it here.
