Seeing the video and articles about the fake Sign Language interpreter at the Nelson Mandela memorial reminded me that once, when I was in primary school, during an assembly the head teacher asked us all to turn to the person next to us and to communicate with them without using words. So everyone was waving, and giving each other a thumbs up, or smiling, etc., and she was pointing out the different things people were doing. And then she got really excited and pulled some kid up because she saw him making signs at his friend and so she wanted him to show the entire school some Sign Language. So he ‘signed’ to the entire school. And the entire school adopted the signs and it became a ‘thing’, like yo-yos, ‘shag bands’, scooby doos, those aliens in goo, dummies, and other various items, and popular slang.
But the signs were fake.
And the made-up meaning assigned to these fake signs was, “WHY DON’T YOU FUCK OFF?”
So he was basically pretending to sign ‘Why don’t you fuck off?” at the entire school.
And the head teacher was loving it.

WHEN IT REALIZES THE PERSON IS STILL THERE AND GOES BACK TO BEING ‘DEAD’
Had a BSL assessment (not an official one, just to basically gauge my level 3 options) and I got feedback…
Things that went well: hand shape and orientation, signing space, BSL grammar, and aspect and manner.
What I struggle with: facial expression and non-manual features (i.e. typical autistic difficulties).
What didn’t go so well because I completely forgot to even try to include any in my presentation, and I’m now kicking myself over because in hindsight it’s so obvious but there were no guidelines and if given vague instructions I really struggle (which… is kind of down to being autistic again): fucking fingerspelling, and fucking multichannel signs! How much of an idiot can I be?!
I should have been better prepared, but in my defence I was struggling with a months-worth of daily sensory overload, a complete inability to focus on pretty much anything at all, the stress and worry of my papa having an operation, so… fuck it.
Anyway, the basic outcome is that I can enrol on level three, but I have a problem now with having to either enrol for the evening class (which is problematic for me because BSL class after work means it’s harder for me to focus, and exacerbates my sensory overload), or the afternoon class (with is also problematic because it requires having the day off, which, although better for my learning and participation, my boss might not be so keen to let me have around 18/19 days off over the course of about four months (altogether it’s 27 classes over the course of six months, but I reckon at least eight of those would be in holiday time rather than term time).
This week is going to be full of sensory overload and exhaustion!
I have/have had:
* My performance appraisal at work. Went well, but still stressful worrying about it.
* Multiple Christmas Concert related events, both practises and performances, that all involve walking from one school site to another, coping with the heat of a packed hall, and the noises, and the songs. Ouch. We had one practise today and it was pretty rough on me.
* BSL stuff (love the class but it requires a lot of focus, and after a day of work, and then travelling there, and the fluorescent lights being evil, it’s hard work).
* The Pantomime. Which will involve walking to the theatre with the kids, suffering all the noise of the kids and the show, and then walking them back. I have ear plugs, so hopefully that will help.
* AutFest on Sunday. Which I’m looking forward to in some respects, and I’m a bit wary of in others…
…Bit not good, yeah.
Look at the awsome ‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug’ promo we have in Romania.
