Amazingism

The other day I saw a tweet from my twitter pal @autismfather (aka Stuart Duncan) which said "I propose that we change #Autism to #Amazingism since it describes them better." I couldn't agree more.

So, you may know that hubs has his Mancave, which is the garage that's been converted into a living room of sorts. There's a couch, a weight bench, some dressers and a projector, hooked up to a computer, pointed at a giant screen on the wall. The boys (all 3 of them) like to go in there and watch the myriad of movies that have been burned from DVD and onto the hard drive.

You may also know that Child 1 loves his YouTube videos of elevators and BART trains. He has commandeered my former desktop computer and spends many wonderful hours watching them. Again and again. And again. And then some more.

It wasn't long, however, until he figured out that the computer in the mancave was really just a big, giant YouTube video watching device. And, so, now that's how he spends many wonderful hours.

Amazingism. Or, perhaps, Awesomism?

I wish there was a way to get on youtube and it not show other links to questionable video's. Something like a kids channel that is locked into the kids channel and will only show G rated material. My kids love youtube but I get nervous every single time.

Amazingism? Awesomism? Either version works for me :)

Awesomism!!!!

Right wing bastard said...

Amazingism sounds like a super hero condition whereas Awesomism is more like a total coolness condition.

I think those terms are pretty interchangeable!

super awesome. The bird is totally into YouTube right now and she's nuts for The Duck Song. She knows that if someone's on the mac, to head over to the PC, and if someone's on that, she'll pick up the iPad, iPhones, iPods, etc. Yes, we are Steve Jobs's wet dream.

Awesomeism is my favorite, because it really imparts all that is Child #2.

Oops, I meant Child#1--I got interrupted by Zane and hit the wrong key.

That's so great. They've graduated from legos to mancaves. Love it. I wish I had a womancave.

I'm thinking awesomeism but am somewhat upset that autismtastic is being overthrown.

OH, crap, you're right! Autismtastic is so awesome! We need to make that happen, still.
